IBM’s BladeCenter H is rich with features, but requires planning before implementing, especially in regards to power.  Over the years, I’ve worked with a lot of customers around the question of what power is needed for the BladeCenter H, so I created a reference document for my use and now I’m sharing it for you to use.  I know IBM has a reference document but mine is focused only on the BladeCenter H and hopefully it is a bit simpler to use.

Hope this is useful for you.  If you would like the actual Visio diagram I used for this, contact me via email with your info.

    Let’s see if I understood…
    Usually Power Module 1 and 2 use the same PDU circuit and 3,4 use another PDU circuit. So if we were to lose one circuit,

    On the bay side: only the fiber modules are in a power degraded mode. AMM and Network still run with full power.
    On the blade side: half of the array would fail.
