To aid in power and cooling requirements planning for the Storwize V7000, the following table lists the rating of each power supply unit (PSU) used in the different models of enclosure. The Storwize V7000 models 2076-124 and the 2076-112 use two of the 764W PSUs. The Storwize V7000 models 2076-224 and 2076-212 use two of the 580W PSUs.

PSU

Maximum Power Output
Caloric value BTU/hr
764W
100 – 240V
10 – 6A
At a frequency of 50 Hz or 60Hz
764W
2607 BTU/hour
580W
100 – 240V
8 – 3A
At a frequency of 50 Hz or 60Hz
580W
1980 BTU/hour

The power and thermal measurements shown below were obtained in the specific operating environment and under the conditions described below and are presented as an illustration. Measurements obtained in other operating environments may vary and customers should conduct their own testing.

The following measurements were taken whilst using the Storwize V7000 at between 23 and 27 degrees Celsius ambient with a typical workload.

Model
Configuration
Total Power Consumption
Caloric value BTU/hr
2076-124
1 enclosure with 24, Solid State Drives
530 W
1800 BTU/hour
2076-124
1 enclosure with 24, 10k SAS Drives
410 W
1400 BTU/hour
2076-224
1 enclosure with 24, 10k SAS Drives
205 W
700 BTU/hour
2076-112
1 enclosure with 12, 7.2k nearline SAS Drives
380 W
1300 BTU/hour
2076-212
1 enclosure with 12, 7.2k nearline SAS Drives
175 W
600 BTU/hour

Each Storwize V7000 model contains 2 PSUs for redundancy. The Total Power Consumption represents the total of the power drawn across both PSUs.
