Current action items

  • Philippe is going to acquire a set of extenders for the front and a 1U shelf for the bottom.
  • James is going to figure out what our power cable needs are and then get them ordered
    • Options are 2ft and 6ft, each with 90 degree bend option along the 'long' side of the plug
    • Four 2 ft cables will be good

Power supply considerations

Official documentation From this documentation it appears that it is possible to have full redundancy while the load is balanced evenly between the UPS and non-UPS PDUs.
