Rack configuration with the HP c-Class BladeSystem
The HP c-Class BladeSystem is a modular-based design that offers very flexible configuration
possibilities. Therefore, the method for calculating BladeSystem installations is more involved than for
DL systems. This example describes a standard 42U rack configured with four c7000 enclosures each
loaded with 16 BL460c G6 server blades.
Prior familiarization with the HP c-Class BladeSystem is strongly
recommended in avoiding Power Advisor error indications and
To calculate the power for an HP BladeSystem based on the c-7000 enclosure, perform the following
Open the Power Advisor and select the power input (for this example, 208).
Select the rack type using the drag and drop method (for this example, 10642 G2).
Select the Enclosure tab and click on the c7000 enclosure. The enclosure will appear in the rack
as shown in Figure 14.
