Planning overview

Planning overview When planning the installation site for your Symmetrix system, meet with your EMC Systems Engineer and EMC Customer Engineer to complete the installation planning task sheet and the presite survey. One or more planning sessions may be necessary to finalize all the details related to installation.

The Symmetrix system is designed for installation in a properly equipped data center that provides sufficient physical space, controlled temperature and humidity, proper airflow and ventilation, proper power and grounding, system cable routing facilities, and fire protection.

Table 2 on page 5 describes the responsibilities of EMC personnel and customers at the first planning session.

Table 2 Preinstallation responsibility summary

EMC Customer

Provide all details necessary for site planning and preparation.

Provide an environment that supports safe installation of the Symmetrix system and promotes its reliable long-term operation.

Symmetrix VMAX 10K systems may be installed in a customer-supplied rack that conforms to the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard for 19-inch cabinets.

If installation includes a customer-supplied rack, identify each branch circuit before installing Symmetrix components.

Complete the EMC PDU Power Connection Worksheet for Symmetrix in 3rd Party Racks worksheet with your site electrician to identify each branch circuit before installing Symmetrix components into a 3rd party rack.

VMAX 10K 3rd party racking option on page 83 provides additional details.

Complete and process the Installation Planning Task Sheet and presite survey in DXCX.

Provide the appropriate connection for ConnectEMC to dial home to the EMC Support Center: Analog telephone line for modem Ethernet connection for ESRS Ethernet connection for ESRS Symmetrix based ESRS

Client Ethernet connection to customers network. Additionally, provide power, cooling and ventilation, humidity control, floor load capability, system placement, and service clearances as required in the data center.

Arrange for shipment and delivery through appropriate method.

Participate in planning sessions as required to ensure a smooth and uncomplicated installation.

Install the system. Both EMC customer service and the customer are responsible for running various scripts during the entire installation process.

EMC Symmetrix VMAX Family Physical Planning Guide 5

Safe system delivery

Safe system delivery The following are considerations that must be taken into account prior to the delivery of the Symmetrix system at your site, including:

Weight capacities of the loading dock, tailgate, and service elevator if delivery is to a floor other than the receiving floor

Length and thickness of covering required for floor protection

Equipment ramp needed if the receiving floor is not level with computer room floor.

Transportation and delivery guidelines

Symmetrix systems delivered within the United States or Canada travel by air-ride truck. Each Symmetrix system is protected by custom-designed shipping material, crated, and palletized.

Symmetrix systems delivered internationally normally involve air freight.

Unless otherwise instructed, the EMC Traffic Department arranges for delivery directly to the customers computer room. To ensure successful delivery of the system, EMC has formed partnerships with specially selected moving companies. These companies have moving professionals trained in the proper handling of large, sensitive systems. These companies provide the appropriate personnel, floor layments, and any ancillary moving equipment required to facilitate delivery.

Make sure that the moving companies check the EMC Unpacking Guide for general guidelines, weights, and dimensions.

IMPORTANT

Inform EMC of any labor union-based restrictions or security clearance requirements prior to delivery.

Moving systems up and down inclines

Because the Symmetrix systems are heavier in front, follow these guidelines to prevent tipping when moving the system up and down inclines:

When moving the cabinet down an incline, the rear of the cabinet must go first.

When moving the cabinet up an incline, the rear of the bay goes last.

All portions of the bay will clear ramp and threshold slopes up to 1:10 (rise to run ratio), per Code of Federal Regulations ADA Standards for Accessible Design, 28 CFR Part 36.

EMC Symmetrix VMAX Family Physical Planning Guide 7

Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) requirements

Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) requirements Electro-magnetic fields which include radio frequencies can interfere with the operation of electronic equipment. EMC Corporation products have been certified to withstand radio frequency interference in accordance with standard EN61000-4-3. In Data Centers that employ intentional radiators, such as cell phone repeaters, the maximum ambient RF field strength should not exceed 3 Volts /meter.

The field measurements should be taken at multiple points in close proximity to EMC Corporation equipment. It is recommended to consult with an expert prior to installing any emitting device in the Data Center. In addition, it may be necessary to contract an environmental consultant to perform the evaluation of RFI field strength and address the mitigation efforts if high levels of RFI are suspected.

The ambient RFI field strength is inversely proportional to the distance and power level of the emitting device. Table 4 on page 8 can be used as a guideline to check if the cell phone repeater or other intentional radiator device is at a safe distance away from the EMC Corporation equipment.

Table 4 Minimum recommended distance from RF emitting device

Power and heat dissipation

Power and heat dissipation Table 5 on page 9 through Table 10 on page 12 contain information about Symmetrix system power consumption and heat dissipation.

All system and storage bay values are calculated based on fully loaded bays.

The power consumption totals are steady-state maximum operation at 25 C. After the loss and return of AC power, the batteries in the standby power supply (SPS) units go into recharge mode for up to 8 hours and consume 20 percent more power than the totals shown.

Calculations in these tables are intended to provide maximum power and heat dissipation. Ensure that the installation site for the system meets these worst case requirements.

EMC provides the EMC Power Calculator, located at http://powercalculator.emc.com to refine the power and heat figures, shown here, to more closely match your Symmetrix system. Contact your EMC Sales Representative or use the EMC Power Calculator for specific supported configurations.

VMAX 10K systems

Power consumption and heat dissipation values vary based on the number and type of system and storage bays.

12 EMC Symmetrix VMAX Family Physical Planning Guide

System airflow requirements

System airflow requirements Symmetrix systems are flexible and able to cool in a variety of data center cooling environments. Systems are designed for installation:

On raised or nonraised floors

In hot aisle/cold aisle arrangements

In traditional front-to-back orientation (with solid rear doors)

In fully ducted ceiling return environments.

Symmetrix systems offer solid and perforated door choices, based on system model, and described in VMAX 10K systems on page 13 and VMAX 20K and VMAX 40K systems on page 15. For data centers with cooling strategies that call for a hot aisle containment design, perforated rear doors are recommended. Where strategies involve directing the air in the hot aisle towards the ceiling, solid doors are preferred.

In all cases, the intent is to provide less mixing of hot and cold air, which can result in a higher return temperature to the computer room air conditioner (CRAC). This promotes better heat transfer outside the building and achieves higher energy efficiency and lower Power Usage Effectiveness (PLU). Additional efficiency can be achieved by sequestering the exhaust air completely and ducting directly to a CRAC unit or to the outside.

If the system is installed on a raised floor, EMC recommends the placement of a perforated floor tile in front of each bay, to allow adequate cooling air supply.

VMAX 10K systems

Symmetrix VMAX 10K system and storage bays are available with perforated front and rear doors. Systems with perforated doors draw air from the front door and exhaust through the perforated rear door and top cover. The exhaust air is directed towards the rear in a hot aisle arrangement.

VMAX 20K and VMAX 40K systems

VMAX 20K and 40K systems provide perforated rear doors on system bays, and offer either perforated or solid rear doors on high density and standard storage bays.

Storage bays with solid rear doors draw air from the front and channel exhaust air towards the ceiling.

System and storage bays with perforated doors draw air from the front door and exhaust through the perforated rear door and top cover.

Figure 2 on page 15 shows the airflow of a Symmetrix system in a typical data center cooling environment. The configuration in this example includes separated standard storage bays in a hot aisle/cold aisle arrangement.

Air volume, air quality and temperature

Recommended temperature and humidity

To ensure long-term system reliability, especially in environments where air quality is a concern, EMC recommends operating within the temperature and humidity ranges in Table 13 on page 17. Air quality requirements on page 17 provides detailed air quality information.

Air quality requirements

EMC products are designed to be consistent with the requirements of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Environmental Standard Handbook and the most current revision of Thermal Guidelines for Data Processing Environments, ASHRAE TC 9.9 2011.

Symmetrix systems are best suited for Class 1A Datacom environments, which consist of tightly controlled environmental parameters, including temperature, dew point, relative humidity and air quality. These facilities house mission critical equipment and are typically fault tolerant, including the air conditioners.. In a data center environment, if the air conditioning fails and the temperature is lost, Symmetrix systems may vault in order to protect data.

The data center should maintain a cleanliness level as identified in ISO 14664-1, class 8 for particulate dust and pollution control. The air entering the data center should be filtered with a MERV 11 filter or better. The air within the data center should be continuously filtered with a MERV 8 or better filtration system. In addition, efforts should be maintained to prevent conductive particles, such as zinc whiskers, from entering the facility.

The allowable relative humidity level is 2080% non condensing, however, the recommended operating environment range is 4055%. For data centers with gaseous contamination, such as high sulfur content, lower temperatures and humidity are recommended to minimize the risk of hardware corrosion and degradation. In general, the humidity fluctuations within the data center should be minimized. It is also recommended that the data center be positively pressured and have air curtains on entry ways to prevent outside air contaminants and humidity from entering the facility.

For facilities below 40% relative humidity (RH), it is recommended to use grounding straps when contacting the equipment to avoid the risk of electrostatic discharge (ESD), which can harm electronic equipment.

Note: As part of an ongoing monitoring process for the corrosiveness of the environment, it is recommended to place copper and silver coupons (per ISA 71.04-1985, Section 6.1 Reactivity) in airstreams representative of those in the data center. The monthly reactivity rate of the coupons should be less than 300 Angstroms. When monitored reactivity rate is exceeded, the coupon should be analyzed for material species and a corrective mitigation process emplaced.

Environmental acclimation

Environmental acclimation The Symmetrix system requires a period of time to become acclimated to a data center environment.

Acclimating the system

To prepare the system for data center acclimation:

1. Completely remove all packing material from the system. Packaged accessory (Open Me First) boxes may remain with the system.

2. Dispose of the packing materials appropriately.

3. Move the system into its operating environment and allow the system to stabilize in the new environment for up to 16 hours as listed in Table 18 on page 20. If the operating system environments temperature and humidity are unknown, then allow the system to stabilize in the new environment for 16 hours.

Note: EMC recommends opening both the front and rear doors of the system to facilitate environmental stabilization.

4. Do not apply AC power to the system for at least the number of hours specified in Table 18 on page 20.

Data acclimation times

Table 18 on page 20 shows required data center acclimation times.

Note: Temperature and humidity values experienced by the system must be such that condensation does not occur on any system part. Altitude and atmospheric pressure specifications are referenced to a standard day at 58.7F (14.8C). Maximum wet bulb temperature is 82F (28C).

Planning host connections

Planning host connections VMAX 10K, VMAX 20K and VMAX 40K systems provide Front-End I/O Modules that support Fibre Channel/FCoE/iSCSI for host, SRDF, Recover Point, and Federated Tiered Storage connectivity in open systems environments. VMAX 20K and VMAX 40K systems also provide FICON mainframe host connectivity.

Front End I/O Modules are ordered and configured in sets of two (one pair) or four (two pairs). Configurations with two (one pair) are not supported in all areas. The slots connect to alternate directors. Each Engine supports four I/O modules (two pairs).

FCoE is supported on 10 GbE Front End I/O Modules only. It is not supported on 1 GbE Front End I/O Modules. SRDF is supported over Fibre Channel or Ethernet ports.

Note: The Front-End Port Layout diagram for your system provide additional details about front-end connections.

Planning host connections

One I/O model that provides two 2-port FICON single mode I/O modules. One I/O module is installed in the slot connecting to the odd director. The other is in the slot that connects to the even director.

Figure 4 I/O module slot configuration

Fibre Channel SRDF planning

Systems with SRDF over Fibre Channel require special considerations.

Each Fibre Channel SRDF connection requires two Fibre Channel ports. One port supports the Fibre Channel connection. The other port is disabled.

When planning Fibre Channel I/O configurations that provide SRDF support, first select the Fibre Channel models that include the required single or multimode optics. Then allow for the ports that are disabled.

External connections

Symmetrix systems support Federated Tiered Storage (FTS) on open systems which allows the connection of external storage arrays to a Symmetrix system using Fibre Channel front-end I/O modules. FTS requires an Enginuity emulation type (DX) and a pair of front-end Fibre channel ports on each front-end I/O module. The FC ports used by FTS are ports that would otherwise be available for host, SRDF, and RecoverPoint connections.

The Front-End Port Layout diagram related to your system provides details on connections.

Data center safety and remote support

Data center safety and remote support Adequate fire prevention equipment is required to ensure safety in the data center or computer room.

Fire suppressant disclaimer

Fire prevention equipment in the computer room should always be installed as an added safety measure. A fire suppression system is the responsibility of the customer. Care should be taken by the customer when selecting appropriate fire suppression equipment and agents for their data center. Your insurance underwriter, local fire marshal, and local building inspector are all parties that should be consulted in selecting a fire suppression system that provides the correct level of coverage and protection. EMC designs and manufactures equipment to internal and external standards that require certain environments for reliable operation. EMC does not make compatibility claims of any kind nor does EMC provide recommendations on fire suppression systems. EMC does recommend that storage equipment not be positioned directly in the path of high pressure gas discharge streams so as to minimize the forces and vibration during the discharge.

Note: The previous information is provided on an as is basis and provides no representations, warranties, guarantees or obligations on the part of EMC Corporation. This information does not modify the scope of any warranty set forth in the terms and conditions of the basic purchasing agreement between the customer and EMC Corporation.

Remote support

Communication between the EMC Customer Support Center and the Symmetrix system occurs through EMC Secure Remote Support (ESRS). Connectivity is available using:

EMC Secure Remote Support Gateway software, provided at no charge to any customer with a maintenance agreement. This IP-based remote support software can be run from either:

The systems service processor, using the new ESRS IP Solution Device Client

A dedicated ESRS gateway server that becomes the conduit for all communications between EMC and the customer site. The Gateway server can be placed in any customer approved location as long as it can communicate with EMC over the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and with the Policy Manager. Policy Manager software, also provided, allows customers to manage, control, and log gateway actions.

An optional modem, available from EMC, that uses a regular telephone line or operates with a PBX.

The EMC Secure Remote Support Gateway Site Planning Guide, located on EMC Online Support, provides additional information.

28 EMC Symmetrix VMAX Family Physical Planning Guide

Floor load bearing requirements

Floor load bearing requirements The Symmetrix system can be installed on raised (preferred) or nonraised floors. The customer must ensure that the raised floor is capable of supporting the system weight specified in System weights on page 30.

If the system is installed in a raised floor environment, EMC recommends the use of 24 x 24 inch heavy-duty, concrete-filled steel floor tiles. If a different size or type of tile is used, the customer must ensure that the tiles have a minimum load rating that is sufficient for supporting the system weight. Ensure proper physical support of the system by following requirements that are based on the use of 24 x 24 in. (61 x 61 cm) heavy-duty, concrete-filled steel floor tiles.

Raised floors must meet the following requirements:

Floor must be level.

Floor tiles and stringers must be rated to withstand concentrated loads of two casters each that weigh up to 800 lb (363 kg) on VMAX 10K systems, and 1,000 lb (453.6 kg) on VMAX 20K and VMAX 40K systems.

Note: Caster weights are measured on a level floor. The front of the system weighs more than the rear of the configuration.

Floor tiles and stringers must be rated for a minimum static ultimate load of 2,500 lb (1,134 kg) per tile on VMAX 10K systems, and 3,000 lb (1,360.8 kg) on VMAX 20K and VMAX 40K systems.

Floor tiles must be rated for a minimum of 800 lb (363 kg) rolling load on VMAX 10K systems, and 1,000 lb (453.6 kg) on VMAX 20K and VMAX 40K systems.

For floor tiles that do not meet the minimum rolling load rate, EMC recommends the use of coverings, such as plywood, to protect floors during system roll.

Floor tile cutouts will weaken the tile. An additional pedestal mount adjacent to the cutout of a tile is recommended. The number and placement of additional pedestal mounts relative to a cutout are to be in accordance with the tile manufacturers recommendations. Floor tile deflection should be minimized with additional pedestal mounts.

Do not position the system bay or storage bays with more than two casters on a single floor tile. Care should be taken when positioning the bays to make sure that a caster is not moved into a cutout.

Note: Cutting tiles per specifications as shown in Dimensions and floor placement on page 49 ensures the proper caster placement.

Use or create no more than one floor tile cutout that is no more than 8 in. (20.3 cm) wide by 6 in. (15.2 cm) deep in each 24 x 24 in. (61 x 61 cm) floor tile.

Ensure that the weight of any other objects in the data center does not compromise the structural integrity of the raised floor or the subfloor (nonraised floor) of the data center.

EMC Symmetrix VMAX Family Physical Planning Guide 29

System weights

System weights Table 25 on page 30 and Table 27 on page 31 describe the maximum weights for the system bay and storage bay.

System bay weights are calculated based on the number of engines, VMAX 10K File components, and storage bay weights (assume a fully loaded configuration). VMAX 10K systems

Table 25 on page 30 shows weights for VMAX 10K systems.

VMAX 10K File systems

Table 26 on page 30 shows weights for systems with VMAX 10K File components.

System weights

VMAX 20K and VMAX 40K systems

Table 27 on page 31 shows the system weights or VMAX 20K and VMAX 40K systems.

Determining load-bearing capacity

Customers must be aware that the load-bearing capacity of the data center floor is not readily ascertainable through a visual inspection of the floor and that the only definitive way to ensure that the floor is capable of supporting the load associated with the system is to have a certified architect or the data center design consultant inspect the specifications of the floor to ensure that the floor is capable of supporting the system weight specified in System weights on page 30.

The customer is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the floor of the data center on which the system is to be configured is capable of supporting the system weight, whether the system is configured directly on the data center floor, or on a raised floor supported by the data center floor.

Failure to comply with these floor loading requirements could result in severe damage to the system, the raised floor, subfloor, site floor and the surrounding infrastructure should the raised floor, subfloor or site floor fail.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any agreement between EMC and customer, EMC fully disclaims any and all liability for any damage or injury resulting from customers failure to ensure that the raised floor, subfloor or site floor are capable of supporting the system weight as specified in System weights on page 30. The customer assumes all risk and liability associated with such failure.

Dispersed layout options

Dispersed layout options Systems in a dispersed layout are separated, or dispersed, between the system bays. Longer fabric and Ethernet cables are provided to allow the separated system bay placement.

VMAX 10K and VMAX 40K systems allow dispersion between system bays.

Dispersion is not allowed on VMAX 20K systems.

VMAX 10K systems

Symmetrix VMAX 10K systems allow dispersion (separation) between system bay 2 and system bays 3 and 4, as shown in Figure 11 on page 38. Dispersed bay cables provide for a maximum separation distance of 33 feet (10 meters) between system bay 2 and system bay 3 and 4. Actual distances will vary, based on routing strategy (beneath raised floor or overhead), site requirements, and the use of GridRunners or cable troughs.

Dispersed system bay configurations require a special cable kit. The cable kit consists of Ethernet and optical cables each bundled in a protective colored sheath. All cables shipped with the dispersed system bay are tested prior to delivery. Because dispersed bays are not bolted to the adjacent bay, each dispersed bay also includes two side panels.

Optional kits for overhead and under floor routing may also be required. Overhead cable routing on page 56 provides details about optional kits and components.

Dispersed layout options

VMAX 40K systems

Symmetrix VMAX 40K systems provide dispersed placement by allowing separation of engines into two system bays. Extended fabric and Ethernet cables, shipped with the configuration, allow dispersed placement of up to 82 feet (25 meters) between the two system bays.

The engines within the bays are dispersed at the third (engine 3), fifth (engine 2), and seventh (engine 1). Systems with dispersed layouts can include 15-drive DAE storage bays, 25-drive DAE storage bays, or a mix of the two.

IMPORTANT

When installing the Optical Cable bundles on dispersed systems, the cables should be pulled to System Bay 2 (from System Bay 1)using the "pull sock" that is installed on one end of the bundle. This action ensures that the bundle is oriented correctly.

Dispersed at the third engine Figure 14 on page 40 shows the layout of a VMAX 40K system dispersed at the third engine.

Separated storage bays, VMAX 20K and 40K systems

Separated storage bays, VMAX 20K and 40K systems VMAX 20K and VMAX 40K systems allow separated daisy-chain storage bay as an additional placement option. Daisy-chain storage bays that are separated are provided with longer cables, and may be placed up to 12 feet (3.6 meters) away from the adjacent storage bay. Actual separation distance depends on the total cable run (both horizontal and vertical) and is determined based on the customer's configuration, cable routing, and data center design. Separated storage bay layout is available with both standard and high density daisy-chain storage bays.

Separated storage bay configurations require a special storage bay model, available through Channel Express and Direct Express (CX/DX). Storage bays are shipped with extended back-end cable bundles wrapped in pink-colored sheathing to help identify the separated bay. Because separated bays are not adjacent to other bays, each separated bay also includes two side panels.

Standard configurations

Figure 17 on page 42 shows a fully loaded Symmetrix system with a standard layout and standard storage bays.

Figure 17 Standard configuration, standard storage bays

Figure 18 on page 42 shows an example of how the standard layout is modified by adding separated storage bays. Systems with dense bays or mixed dense and standard bays will not include bays 3C or 3D.

Storage bay separation, maximum distances

Figure 22 on page 45 illustrates the maximum distances between separated storage bays.

Figure 22 Separated storage bay maximum distances

Placement requirements

The following placement requirements apply to separated storage bays:

Separated storage bays may not be placed across more than one hot or cold aisle.

All service area clearance distances must be maintained when locating separated storage bays.

All separated bay cables must be routed through an adjacent cabinet, under the raised floor, or overhead. Cables may not be exposed.

Separated bays may be placed side-to-side, back-to-back, front-to-front, and front-to-back.

Only daisy-chain storage bays can be separated:

Standard configuration bays that can be separated are 2A, 2B, 2C, 3C, 2D, and 3D

Extended drive loop bays, supported on VMAX 20K systems only, can be separated are 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A and 2B, 3B, 4B, and 5B.

Direct connect storage bays must be located in the same row as the system bay:

Standard configurations - Bays 1C and 1D are located adjacent to bays 2A and 2B respectively, or they can be located immediately adjacent to bays 1A and 1B if bays 2A and 2B have been separated across the hot or cold aisle.

Extended drive loop configurations (VMAX 20K systems only) - Bays 1A and 1B are located adjacent to the system bay.

SYM-002301

Note: All bay separation distances are point-to-point. Any routing under the floor or overhead is a 1 in to 1 in (2.54 cm to 2.54 cm) decrease in separation distance.

Separated storage bays, VMAX 20K and 40K systems

Separated storage bays should be located on the same side (left or right) as the system bay.

Standard configurations with separated bays (front view):

Bays 1A, 2A, 1C, 2C and 3C - Left of the system bay.

Bays 1B, 2B, 1D, 2D and 3D - Right of the system bay.

Extended drive loop configurations, VMAX 20K systems only, with separated bays (front view):

Bays 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A and 5A - Left of the system bay.

Bays 1B, 2B, 3B, 4B and 5B - Right of the system bay.

NOTE: Extended drive configurations do not support dense or mixed standard and dense storage bays.

Using a GridRunner and cable trough

Cables that connect separated bays can be routed overhead, using the overhead routing bracket, or routed across the subfloor. When subfloor routing is preferred, longer cables can be laid directly over the subfloor. The 12 ft (3.66 m) allowable separation distances between bays includes both the horizontal distance between bays and the vertical drop to the subfloor.

Figure 23 on page 47 shows separation distances when subfloor routing is preferred.

46 EMC Symmetrix VMAX Family Physical Planning Guide

Separated storage bays, VMAX 20K and 40K systems

Figure 23 Separated storage bay distances across subfloor

Using an EMC GridRunner and customer-supplied cable trough can help organize and protect subfloor cables that connect separated storage bays. Because GridRunners reduce the vertical drop, using Gridrunners can also increase the distance between the separated bays.

Figure 24 on page 48 shows subfloor cable routing with EMC GridRunners. Each Gridrunner supports four cable bundles. GridRunners are installed with brackets that attach to the stanchions under the raised floor. The brackets can attach to stanchions that are up to one inch in diameter, measured at six inches (15.24 cm) below the raised tiles. To ensure sufficient support, a GridRunner should be installed every 2 meters.

Overhead cable routing

Overhead cable routing When installing a Symmetrix system in nonraised floor (or in some instances on a raised floor) environments, the host cabling and power is handled from overhead using the topside cable routing kit.

Topside routing kit

EMC provides a topside cable routing kit to assist in the management of cable routing into the system.

Table 33 on page 56 provides part number and description information for the topside cable routing kits on VMAX 10K systems.

Models preceded with the BC prefix are available in China (BC-TOP-KIT)

Models preceded with the BA prefix are available outside of China (BA-TOP-KIT)

Table 34 on page 56 provides part number and description information for the topside cable routing kits on VMAX 20K systems.

Table 35 on page 56 provides part number and description information for the topside cable routing kits on VMAX 40K systems.

Power cabling

If the customer requires power to be supplied from overhead, EMC recommends the power cables be dropped down the hinge side, to the bottom, and routed inside the machine. The cables should be dressed to allow all doors to open freely.

A second option is to replace the rear top cover of the bay with the ceiling routing top cover, described in Topside routing kit on page 56, which allow the power cables inside the machine to be routed out through the top. The customer is responsible for meeting all local electrical safety requirements.

System and storage bay power components

System and storage bay power components Symmetrix system and storage bays provide components that support the following transmission methods:

North American Single-phase or three-phase

International Single-phase or three-phase

Australian Single-phase

The transmission methods available depend on the VMAX 10K, VMAX 20K or VMAX 40K model, as described in VMAX 10K systems on page 58 and VMAX 20K and 40K systems on page 61.

All storage and system bays within a configuration must use the same power transmission method.

IMPORTANT

If the system or storage bays have been without power six months prior to installation, the lead SPS and UPS modules may have discharged to the point where they will no longer hold a charge. In some extreme cases, these modules may need to be replaced prior to putting the system online. This is due to the batteries having a shelf life of approximately 6 months when not being continuously charged by the charger in the SPS or UPS.

EMC Symmetrix VMAX Family Physical Planning Guide 67

Planning dedicated dual power for each Symmetrix bay

Planning dedicated dual power for each Symmetrix bay Before the Symmetrix system is delivered, the customer must supply and install the required receptacles on the customers PDUs for zone A and zone B power for the system bay and each storage bay.

The EMC Best Practices Guide for AC Power Connections (2-PDP Bays) or the EMC Best Practices Guide for AC Power Connections (4-PDP Bays) provides detail site preparation and power connection procedures.

IMPORTANT

EMC requires that the customer's electrician be present at installation time to work with the EMC Customer Engineer to verify power redundancy.

Basic power connection, 2-PDP and 4-PDP

For single-phase power, systems and storage bays include two power zones with two PDPs in each zone.

For three-phase power, system and storage bays include two power zones with a PDP in each zone.

Extension cords are colored coded. If you have color-coded (black and gray) power extension cables, connect as follows:

Best practice power configuration guidelines

Best practice power configuration guidelines This section provides best practice guidelines for evaluating and connecting power, as well as for choosing a UPS component.

Uptime Institute best practices

Follow these best practice guidelines when connecting AC power to the system:

The EMC Customer Engineer should discuss with the customer the need for validating AC power redundancy at each bay, and that a Data Unavailable (DU) event could occur if these requirements are not met.

The customer should complete power provisioning with the data center prior to connecting power to the system.

The customers electrician or facilities representative must verify that the AC voltage is within specification at each of the power drops being fed to the bays.

All of the power drops should be labeled to indicate the source of power (PDU) and the specific circuit breakers utilized within each PDU:

Color coding of these power cables can be an option to help achieve redundancy.

Clearly label the equipment served by each circuit breaker within the customer PDU.

The electrician or facilities representative must verify that there are two power drops fed from separate redundant PDUs prior to turning on the system:

If both power drops to a bay are connected to the same PDU incorrectly, a DU event will result during normal data center maintenance when the PDU is switched off. The label on the power cables depicts the correct connection, as shown in Figure 45 on page 71.

The EMC Customer Engineer must record the PDU and circuit breaker information for each power drop feeding the system on the AC Power Configuration Worksheet.

The electrician should pay particular attention to how each PDU receives power from each UPS within the data center because it is possible to create a scenario where turning off a UPS for maintenance could cause both power feeds to a single bay to be turned off, creating a DU event.

The customers electrician should perform an AC verification testing by turning off the individual circuit breakers feeding each power zone within the bay, while the Customer Engineer monitors the LED on the SPS modules to verify that power redundancy has been achieved in each bay.

Very simply stated, one PDU should never supply both power zone feeds to any one rack of equipment. Figure 45 on page 71 shows the label attached to power cords that shows how to connect to customer power sources.

72 EMC Symmetrix VMAX Family Physical Planning Guide

Best practice power configuration guidelines

Choosing a UPS option

The Symmetrix system is capable of supporting two consecutive five-minute power outages before its battery backup unit is depleted. To extend this time period, the customer should consider purchasing a UPS and/or a back up generator from a preferred vendor.

EMC neither offers nor recommends any specific UPS suppliers or product type for its customers. However, EMC uses preferred suppliers for UPS systems in their facilities. Therefore, if you, the customer, are implementing a UPS, EMC recommends the following:

When you are planning the UPS solution for the Symmetrix system and the host system is presently (or potentially will be) protected with a UPS, the battery backup time you propose for the Symmetrix UPS solution should match that of the host system.

The Symmetrix system requires independent zone B and zone A power feeds for each bay.

The UPS should be equipped with an internal output isolation transformer.

The UPS should be installed as a separately derived AC source using neutral and ground wiring to preserve the (2N) fault tolerance specification of the Symmetrix power system.

Depending on the power requirements for the Symmetrix system operation, an isolation transformer/stabilizer installed in front of the UPS could buffer the AC utility environmental factors from reaching the Symmetrix system. To determine if an isolation transformer/stabilizer is needed, consult a licensed electrician.

EMC Symmetrix VMAX Family Physical Planning Guide 73

Power extension cords, connectors, and wiring

Power extension cords, connectors, and wiring Each Symmetrix system has two or four PDPs with a power cable affixed to each PDP, and a connector affixed to each power cable.

Extension cord model numbers

EMC uses a prefix, before the model numbers, to identify power cords for VMAX 10K, VMAX 20K and VMAX 40K systems:

BC Identifies power cords for VMAX 10K systems in China (BC-PW40U-US)

BA Identifies power cords for VMAX 10K systems outside of China (BA-PW40U-US)

S2 Identifies power cords for VMAX 20K systems (S2-PW40U-US)

VMAX 10K 3rd party racking option

VMAX 10K 3rd party racking option Symmetrix VMAX 10K components may be installed in a customer-supplied rack that conforms to the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard for 19-inch cabinets. This allows customers to install Symmetrix components into a standard rack that conforms to their existing computer room and infrastructure.

Components that are installed in a customer rack are shipped in a fully tested EMC system or storage bay (shipping rack), and installed by EMC customer support engineers. The original shipping rack, when empty, is returned to EMC after the installation is complete.

IMPORTANT

Before you proceed in installing Symmetrix components into a 3rd party rack EMC recommends you first complete the EMC PDU Power Connection Worksheet for Symmetrix in 3rd Party Racks worksheet with your site electrician to identify each branch circuit.

Computer room requirements

The following computer room requirements provide service access and minimize physical disruption:

To ensure integrity of cables and connections, do not move racks that are secured (bolted) together after installation.

A minimum of 36 inches front and rear clearance is required to provide adequate airflow and to allow for system service.

Rack requirements

To ensure successful installation and secure component placement, customer racks must conform to the following requirements:

Individual racks must ONLY contain Symmetrix VMAX 10K and conforming third party PDU and cable management components, and must be empty at the time of installation.

A separate rack that supports a minimum 1300 lb/590 kg of weight must be provided for each system and storage bay.

Components and cables installed in customer racks must conform to Symmetrix VMAX 10K configuration rules:

Components and cables within a system or storage bay can not be moved to available space in different bay, or to a different location within the same bay.

System and storage bays must be properly positioned in accordance with VMAX 10K physical placement rules. Physical separation of racks/bays is not allowed with exception of optical dispersion option for system bays 2 and 3.

Racks must have a standard 19 inch NEMA rail with a minimum of 40 and a maximum of 44 U of contiguous vertical channel space (1U increments).

Racks that are longer than 44 U are allowed but must install blanking (filler) panels, available from EMC, to prevent air recirculation.

EMC Symmetrix VMAX Family Physical Planning Guide 83

VMAX 10K 3rd party racking option

Racks must be at least 38 inches deep, and provide 24 to 32 inch front-to-rear rail depth

Racks with round or square channel openings must support M5 screws that secure EMC rails and components. Clip nuts are provided by EMC as required.

Rack-to-rack pass-through cable access must be available via removable side panels or adequate pass through openings.

To ensure proper clearance and air flow to the Symmetrix VMAX 10K components, customer supplied front doors, if used, must include a minimum of 2.5 inch clearance between the back surface of the door to the front surface of the vertical NEMA rails.

Front and rear doors must also provide:

A minimum of 50% (evenly distributed) air perforation openings

Appropriate access for service personnel, with no items that prevent front or rear access to EMC components

Exterior visibility of system LEDs.

Power requirements for rack option

Power requirements for rack option Customer racks must include all power distribution equipment and infrastructure, including:

Carefully plan the connection of VMAX 10K hardware to the available IEC 320-C13 outlets such that the VMAX 10K load current does not exceed the rating of any power distribution circuit breakers. Best practice is the circuit breaker operating current at nominal AC input voltage should not exceed 80% of the circuit breaker rating.

Refer to Table 42 on page 85 to Table 48 on page 87 for input requirements for each component.

Refer to Table 50 on page 89 and Table 51 on page 89 for planning the number of connections required to support VMAX 10K components.

Two independent AC power zones with 4800 VA minimum rating for each zone

ICE 320-C13 outlets, within each contiguous 40 U space within the enclosure, arranged as follows:

200-240VAC, 50-60 Hz, available at each IEC 320-C13 outlet

Ability to simultaneously turn On/Off all IEC C13 outlets within a power zone

Distance from any component AC inlet connection to its corresponding C13 AC outlet can not exceed 66 inches (66 inches is the maximum AC cable length, including routing / service loop)

No other equipment loads on power distribution equipment in racks with Symmetrix VMAX 10K equipment
