I am new to DELL servers and have some questions the power requirements and power supply configuration for an M1000e enclosure w/ (16) M630 blades.
Infrastructure / Requirements:
1) Does DELL have an online power calculator that will optimize power supply configuration and give me a printout or startup and sustained power usage to submit the facility manager?
2) What is the most efficient method to configure the power supplies in the enclosure?
3) Is there an advantage to using the 2700W over the 3000W power supplies in order to try to conserve power draw?
