RE: How to calculate BTU and Power Consumption for a server or array?

Jump to solution

Comparing apples to oranges.  The newer servers are more efficient, using less power and producing less heat, thus providing cost savings in the datacenter. 

The figures used are as if they were the only server in the rack.  If you place more equipment  in the rack the numbers will go up.

It would be very nice if the tool were consistent, it states the R910 is part of the "Supported Products" but is not available as a choice when trying to use the tool.  It's very frustrating to waste so much time digging for energy values on Dell's website for information that should be readily available for every server Dell has manufactured.

Dear:

I would consult as BTU consumption calculation for two servers

Dell PowerEdge 2950
Dell PowerEdge 2970

In the Hash I have found this information.

Hello Geoff P,

i have a question. for any particular server, say for example :- PowerEdge R520, the power consumption is 159Watts. So do you mean that this 159W is at full load? if so, how much of power/BTU is dissipated/lost when it is working at full load? how to calculate it? Any kind of help in this is appreciated.

Thanks.
