On Oct 3 2017, HCP will begin offering new rack and PDU (power distribution) capabilities.
More details in this presentation
1. Option to choose Single-Phase or Three-Phase PDU
- Three-phase PDU can generally carry more load, thus fewer are needed
- Models available for America, EMEA and APAC regions.
2. Appliance vs. Non Appliance configurations
- Appliance configurations allow customers to fit smaller HCP configurations into a single rack
- Appliance configurations have limited future expansion: Strictly limited qty(6) G10 nodes.
- If customer has future plans to expand beyond 6, then Appliance config should NOT be used.
