HP c-Class blades take energy efficiency to a new level

HP's newest c-Class blade chassis 16-blade system has brought energy efficiency design to a whole new level in server infrastructure. The unique design allows the system to shut down up to 5 of the 6 2250 watt power supplies to maintain a peak load on the remaining power supply which translates to more than 90% power supply efficiency. If power supply redundancy is needed and configured on the chassis, it will leave 2 of the power supplies on in case one of them should fail. This would translate to less than 140 watts of average power consumption for each of the 16 2-socket Intel or AMD based servers while they are operating at lower utilization levels.
