R710 Power Consumption

I saw this datasheet for the power consumption of an R710. My power consumption is near the maximum. I'm currently trying to size a UPS and have some questions, preferably answered by someone from Dell although if any of you all from the community have other sheets like this, that would be awesome as well.

What 6 HDDs were used in testing of the maximum? I'm going to be using 7200RPM 4TB Drives (deciding between HGST Deskstar, Ultrastar, and WD Red Pro, likely HGST UltraStar) and I want to approximate power consumption.

Also, will redundant PSUs increase my power consumption? Will it still just be 570W?

Thanks,
Lucas
