comment How many hp dl360 g7 in a rack?
I dispute it too, I've been long enough in telco shelters to say that filling up the full 42 U should be fine, provided there's a proper cooling system, and power capacity. I think the HP sales guy just didn't want to deal with an installation lacking adequate cooling system. Spacing at the bottom/middle is required to accomodate the cable slack, end up with 34 to 38 U used, that's all. But there is no reason in the world to impose 1U spacing, considering this doubles the hostings costs. Dell provides 42U support with similar server cooling design, HP sales are just sissies.

@Chopper3: woo, this is really surprising, considering that the immediate consequence is to double a server deployment footprint. Collocation turns very expensive this way. My 20-year-old-experienced-ossified colleague will smile... Damnit. I just can't figure out why they say this? Not even speaking about the number of racks I've seen in previous jobs with servers stacked on one another. plus, if you have to use blanking panels, what's the point of leaving a gap? This leaves a layer of hot air that's never cooled properly. Not the answer I wanted, but it is what it is.. Thanks a bunch!

True, it's always good to leave up to 4u spacing at the bottom for the cable slack etc..

I'd love to have the hp guy, but it's controlled by another department, so no account number available. Plus the guy who makes the company recommendation just doesn't want to hear anything about it(20 years experience ossified in his job)....

Ok, that's exactly what the guys here say. The top-vent lead everyone to think that there must be spacing, which I think is incorrect. Until I get an official hp recommendation that's not going to change. Did you get your hands on such document?

Precisely... But that doesn't seem to convince anyone here. It's up to the point where they think that stacking the servers will prevent proper heat dissipation. I think they just need something like a white paper to cover their ass.
