Site Planning

This chapter outlines the site planning requirements and basic safety requirements for the installation and use of Sun StorEdge 3510 FC arrays and Sun StorEdge 3511 SATA arrays. Complete a preinstallation worksheet and prepare the site for installation according to the worksheet details and the specified site planning requirements.

Review the details of this chapter before installing a Sun StorEdge 3510 FC array or Sun StorEdge 3511 SATA array. Topics covered in this chapter are:



Note - The release notes for your array list the supported operating systems, host platforms, software, and qualified cabinets.




2.1 Customer Obligations

The customer is obliged to inform Sun Microsystems, Inc. of any and all ordinances and regulations that would affect installation.

2.3.1 Electromagnetic Compatibility

The following is required for all installations:


2.4 Electrical and Power Specifications

Sun StorEdge 3510 FC arrays and Sun StorEdge 3511 SATA arrays require two independent power sources. Each array has two power supply and two fan modules for redundancy.

Each AC array requires two 115 VAC/15A or two 240 VAC service outlets. All AC power supplies are autoranging and are automatically configured to a range of 90-264 VAC and 47-63 Hz. There is no need to make special adjustments.

Each DC array requires two -48 VDC service outlets and has an input voltage range of -36 VDC to -72 VDC.



Note - To ensure power redundancy, connect the two array power modules to two separate circuits (for example, one commercial circuit and one UPS).

17.5 inches (44.6 cm.) width

19 inches (48.26 cm.) width with ears

Installation clearance

For FRU component removal and replacement, 15 inches (37 cm.) is required front and back.

Cooling clearances

6 inches (15 cm.) is required front and back. No cooling clearance is required on the sides or the top and bottom of the array.



2.6 Layout Map

It is helpful to create a sketch or layout map to indicate the exact location of the array as well as the location of the hosts, console, and Ethernet connections that will be connected to it.

As you lay out the components, consider the cable lengths that will be used.

2.6.1 Rack Placement

Follow these guidelines when preparing a rackmount placement for your system:

2.6.2 Tabletop Placement

Sun StorEdge 3510 FC arrays and Sun StorEdge 3511 SATA arrays can be positioned on a desk or a table. Follow these guidelines when preparing a tabletop placement for your system:


2.7 Console and Other Requirements

A console with at least one serial port connection is necessary for installation and configuration of your Sun StorEdge 3510 FC array or Sun StorEdge 3511 SATA array. Once you have configured your array with an IP address, an Ethernet port can also be useful for configuring the array.



Note - Sun StorEdge 3000 family arrays require at least CAT-5 Ethernet cable.



See the following preinstallation worksheet for additional preparation details.


2.8 Preinstallation Worksheets

Before ordering a Sun StorEdge 3510 FC array or Sun StorEdge 3511 SATA array, complete the preinstallation worksheets on the following pages and then prepare the site for installation according to the site planning requirements.



Note - If you are connecting to several hosts or fabric switches, make as many copies of TABLE 2-5 as you need and label them appropriately.
