IBM 00AL533 Frequently Asked Questions

What does it mean if a power supply is rated 550W?

550W refers to the power output capacity of the power supply unit (PSU). It indicates that the PSU can deliver up to 550 watts of electrical power to the components within the server system.

Power supplies like the 550W PSU have been around for quite some time, with their popularity and adoption increasing as server technology advanced. They were likely introduced around the mid-2000s and have since become a standard offering for various server configurations.

The release of power supplies with higher wattage ratings like 550W was an important advancement in technology for several reasons:

  1. Increased Power Demands: As servers evolved and became more powerful, with the addition of multiple processors, memory modules, storage drives, and expansion cards, they required more electrical power to function properly. Higher wattage power supplies allowed servers to meet these increased power demands.

  2. Energy Efficiency: While higher wattage power supplies provided more power, they also opened up opportunities for improved energy efficiency. Modern power supply units are designed with higher efficiency ratings, such as 80 PLUS certifications, which indicate that the PSU can convert a higher percentage of the incoming AC power into usable DC power for the server components, reducing energy waste and operational costs.

  3. Redundancy and Scalability: In data center environments, redundancy and scalability are crucial. Servers often use multiple power supplies to ensure continuous operation even if one PSU fails. Higher wattage power supplies made it possible to support larger server configurations with more components while maintaining redundant power sources.

  4. Support for High-Performance Components: High-performance servers, especially those used for resource-intensive tasks like virtualization, data processing, and scientific computing, require powerful processors, multiple GPUs, and substantial memory. A 550W power supply can provide the necessary power for these demanding components to operate effectively.

  5. Future-Proofing: As technology continues to advance, server components become more power-efficient, allowing higher-performing hardware to fit within the power envelope of a 550W PSU. This means that investing in higher wattage PSUs can provide longevity to the server infrastructure, as it accommodates future upgrades and advancements without needing to replace the power supplies.

Overall, the introduction of power supplies with a 550W rating was a significant advancement that enabled servers to support more powerful and energy-efficient components, improved redundancy, and better scalability in data center and enterprise environments.

What does it mean if a power supply is rated Platinum?

When talking about server power supplies, "Platinum" refers to the 80 PLUS Platinum certification, which is a standard for measuring the energy efficiency of power supplies used in computers and servers. The 80 PLUS certification program was developed by Ecos Consulting and introduced by the electric utility company Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) in 2004 to encourage energy-efficient power supply designs.

The 80 PLUS Platinum certification is one of several levels of efficiency certifications within the program, with higher levels indicating greater energy efficiency. Power supplies with the Platinum certification are designed to operate with an efficiency of at least 90% at various load levels, such as 20%, 50%, and 100% of their rated capacity. This means that they waste less energy in the form of heat and convert more of the incoming electrical power into usable output power for the system components.

Power supplies with higher efficiency have several advantages:

  1. Reduced Energy Consumption: More efficient power supplies consume less energy, resulting in lower electricity bills and reduced environmental impact.

  2. Less Heat Generation: A more efficient power supply generates less heat during operation, which contributes to a cooler and more stable operating environment for servers and computers. This can also extend the lifespan of components.

  3. Increased Reliability: The improved design and components used in higher-efficiency power supplies can contribute to greater overall reliability and a longer service life.

  4. Green Initiatives: Energy-efficient power supplies align with environmental sustainability goals by reducing overall energy consumption and lowering the carbon footprint of data centers and computing facilities.

80 PLUS Platinum power supplies were introduced in the early 2010s, following the initial launch of the 80 PLUS certification program in 2004. The Platinum certification represented a significant advancement in technology because it pushed power supply manufacturers to develop more efficient designs that wasted less energy. This was particularly important in data centers and enterprise environments where high energy consumption and heat generation were major concerns.

The introduction of higher-efficiency power supplies like Platinum also played a role in driving the broader adoption of energy-efficient computing practices and green technologies, as they helped organizations save costs, reduce environmental impact, and comply with energy efficiency regulations.

"We're a Canadian company who was badly in need of a drive for our server. Wasn't sure how the cross border purchase would go but Scott and his team had us taken care of at a price that couldn't be beaten and with lightning speed and efficiency. We had our drive in just a few days. I would highly recommend this company! Wish there were more out there like them!"
