2.1 Space Requirements

2.1.1 Receiving and Unpacking Requirements
2.1.2 Maintenance Access Requirements

All Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance X3-2 racks have the same space requirements. The space requirements are as follows:

The minimum ceiling height for the cabinet is 2300 mm (90 inches), measured from the true floor or raised floor, whichever is higher. An additional 914 mm (36 inches) is for top clearance. The space above the cabinet and its surroundings must not restrict the movement of cool air between the air conditioner and the cabinet, or the movement of hot air coming out of the top of the cabinet.

2.1.1 Receiving and Unpacking Requirements

Before your Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance X3-2 arrives, ensure that the receiving area is large enough for the package. The following are the package dimensions and weights for Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance X3-2 system:

  • Shipping height: 2159 mm (85 inches)

  • Shipping width: 1219 mm (48 inches)

  • Shipping depth: 1575 mm (62 inches)

  • Shipping weight (base rack, fully populated): 996 kg (2197 lbs)

If your loading dock meets the height and ramp requirements for a standard freight carrier truck, then you can use a pallet jack to unload the rack. If the loading dock does not meet the requirements, then you must provide a standard forklift or other means to unload the rack. You can also request that the rack be shipped in a truck with a lift gate.

When Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance X3-2 arrives, leave the rack in its shipping packaging until it arrives at its installation site. Use a conditioned space to remove the packaging material to reduce particles before entering the data center. The entire access route to the installation site should be free of raised-pattern flooring that can cause vibration.

Allow enough space for unpacking the system from its shipping cartons. Ensure that there is enough clearance and clear pathways for moving Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance X3-2 from the unpacking location to the installation location. Table 2.1 lists the access route requirements for Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance X3-2.
