I have to buy a stand alone server rack to be placed in a machine room. The temperature can reach 30°C in the room (I have no choice with regards to the location). In order to correct for this I will use active cooling with the used air being extracted.
I need to calculate the rating for the cooling cabinet. The cabinet will have 2 catalyst 2960 g switches and 4 HP ProLiant DL380p Gen8 E5-2609 2.4GHz 4-core 1P 4GB-R P420i SFF 460W PS Entry EU Servers as well as 3 USB extender receiver signal adapters.
The catalyst I can look up as well as the KVM but I have a problem with the Proliant as I cant figure out what heat it generates. The only BTU specification is the power supply which is rated in this case for 1725BTUs which is circa 506 watts. Does this mean that for four of these units I only need a cabinet that can cater for 4*(506)+2*(129)+3*(50) = 2.432 kW.
Can it be that easy?
