Sun ZFS Storage 7120 Power Calculator

Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage 7120 appliance is optimized for midsize companies and departments, or remote offices of large corporations that need robust data services. It can be expanded to up to 120TB of capacity, comes integrated with 96GB of Flash-based write-cache for optimal performance, and features affordable entry-level pricing.

The intent of the power calculator is to provide guidance for estimating the electrical and heat loads for typical operating conditions.

Notices and Disclaimers

You MUST allow electrical and cooling headroom for unforeseen circumstances, component upgrades, and increased computational loads. Please allow for worst-case power conditions. Actual power consumption will vary from the sample workload used in the power calculator. These include, but are not limited to, the factors below. Each of these factors may cause significant differences in power consumption:

  • Actual workload and its fluctuations
  • Ambient temperature
  • Cooling patterns
  • Excessive inlet temperature
  • Humidity
  • Operating systems features
  • Power management settings

The "Sample Power" results shown (if using 100% workload) represent power consumption measurements with CPUs at 100% utilization. The "Active Idle Power" results represent power consumption measurements taken when system booted and stabilized, yet running at minimal utilization. Sample results shown are representative of measurements taken with room temperatures below 25°C. System power can vary depending upon hardware/software configurations and environmental conditions. For precise results, actual measurements based upon the exact hardware/software/environmental conditions are recommended.
