HP Unveils New HP 10000 G2 Series Racks
Houston, May 2, 2007 - HP today unveiled the new 10000 G2 Series Rack family. These enterprise-class racks, from 22U to 47U and 600mm to 800mm widths, combine unparalleled structural integrity, cooling, and cable management. The ease-of-use capabilities, a wide choice of rack, power, and switching options deliver a best-in-class product. The HP 10000 G2 Rack is designated as HP's universal rack - ideal for all rack mounted servers and storage products. The HP 10000 G2 Series Rack family is ideal for sophisticated SMB companies and large enterprises with medium to large datacenters.
In addition to the universality of the new racks, important improvements have been made from the previous version, including improved and updated front door design, improved front and rear door handles and latches, and easier to handle three-section side panels.
A multi-angle door design and fully-perforated front and rear doors provide efficient convection cooling and improved ventilation. In addition, the doors have been tested to be 65 percent open for proper ventilation and cooling of servers and IT equipment.
The HP 10000 G2 Series Rack family features a patented 7x2 roll frame unique in the industry. The steel of the frame is folded seven times, rather than just being cut thicker - enabling the rack to hold a net weight of 2000 pounds of static and dynamic loading.
U markings appear on the front and side of all four mounting rails, holes in the rails allow side-to-side cabling, and split rear doors facilitate easy servicing and minimize rear aisle space interference.
The HP 10000 G2 Series Rack family addresses the cable management problems of high-density environments with features such as large cable egresses in the rack top, a removable access panel on the rear door, and cable management straps.
