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 Exadata Rack 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 it from its shipping cartons. Ensure that there is enough clearance and clear pathways for moving Oracle Exadata Rack from the unpacking location to the installation location. Table 1-20 lists the access route requirements for Oracle Exadata Rack.

Electrical Power Requirements

Oracle Exadata Racks can operate effectively over a wide range of voltages and frequencies. However, they must have a reliable power source. Damage may occur if the ranges are exceeded. Electrical disturbances such as the following may damage Oracle Exadata Rack:

  • Fluctuations caused by brownouts

  • Wide and rapid variations in input voltage levels or in input power frequency

  • Electrical storms

  • Faults in the distribution system, such as defective wiring

To protect Oracle Exadata Rack from such disturbances, you should have a dedicated power distribution system, power-conditioning equipment, as well as lightning arresters or power cables to protect from electrical storms.

This section contains the following topics:

PDU Power Requirements

Each rack has two pre-installed power distribution units (PDUs). The PDUs accept different power sources. You must specify the type of PDU that is correct for your Oracle Exadata Rack and data center.

  • 3 receptacles to connect the PDUs to 2 IEC 60309 60A 4-pin 250VAC 3ph IP67 data center receptacles

Figure 1-4 shows the high-voltage 37 kVA three phase PDU power connector for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and Asia Pacific (APAC), except for Japan and Taiwan.

Facility Power Requirements

Electrical work and installations must comply with applicable local, state, or national electrical codes. Contact your facilities manager or qualified electrician to determine what type of power is supplied to the building.

To prevent catastrophic failures, design the input power sources to ensure adequate power is provided to the PDUs. Use dedicated AC breaker panels for all power circuits that supply power to the PDU. When planning for power distribution requirements, balance the power load between available AC supply branch circuits. In the United States and Canada, ensure that the overall system AC input current load does not exceed 80 percent of the branch circuit AC current rating.

PDU power cords are 4 meters (13.12 feet) long, and 1 to 1.5 meters (3.3 to 4.9 feet) of the cord is routed within the rack cabinet. The installation site AC power receptacle must be within 2 meters (6.6 feet) of the rack.

Circuit Breaker Requirements

To prevent catastrophic failures, the design of your power system must ensure that adequate power is provided to the servers. Use dedicated AC breaker panels for all power circuits that supply power to the server. Electrical work and installations must comply with applicable local, state, or national electrical codes. Servers require electrical circuits be grounded to the Earth.

In addition to circuit breakers, provide a stable power source, such as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to reduce the possibility of component failures. If computer equipment is subjected to repeated power interruptions and fluctuations, then it is susceptible to a higher rate of component failure.

Note:

Circuit breakers are supplied by the customer. One circuit breaker is required for each power cord.

Grounding Guidelines

The cabinets for Oracle Exadata Rack are shipped with grounding-type power cords. Always connect the cords to grounded power outlets. Because different grounding methods are used, depending on location, check the grounding type, and refer to documentation, such as IEC documents, for the correct grounding method. Ensure that the facility administrator or qualified electrical engineer verifies the grounding method for the building, and performs the grounding work.

Temperature and Humidity Requirements

Airflow through Oracle Exadata Rack is from front to back. Refer to Table 1-3 for information on cooling and airflow.

Note:

Studies have shown that temperature increases of 10 degrees Celsius (15 degrees Fahrenheit) above 20 degrees Celsius (70 degrees Fahrenheit) reduce long-term electronics reliability by 50 percent.

Excessive internal temperatures may result in full or partial shut down of Oracle Exadata Database Machine.

Table 1-33 lists the temperature, humidity and altitude requirements for operating and non-operating machines.

Table 1-33 Temperature, Humidity and Altitude Requirements

Condition Operating Requirement Non-operating Requirement Optimum

Temperature

5 to 32 degrees Celsius (41 to 89.6 degrees Fahrenheit)

-40 to 70 degrees Celsius (-40 to 158 degrees Fahrenheit).

For optimal rack cooling, data center temperatures from 21 to 23 degrees Celsius (70 to 74 degrees Fahrenheit)

Relative humidity

10 to 90 percent relative humidity, non-condensing

Up to 93 percent relative humidity.

For optimal data center rack cooling, 45 to 50 percent, non-condensing

Altitude

3048 meters (10000 feet) maximum

12000 meters (40000 feet).

Ambient temperature is reduced by 1 degree Celsius per 300 m above 900 m altitude above sea level


Set conditions to the optimal temperature and humidity ranges to minimize the chance of downtime due to component failure. Operating Oracle Exadata Rack for extended periods at or near the operating range limits, or installing it in an environment where it remains at or near non-operating range limits could significantly increase hardware component failure.

The ambient temperature range of 21 to 23 degrees Celsius (70 to 74 degrees Fahrenheit) is optimal for server reliability and operator comfort. Most computer equipment can operate in a wide temperature range, but near 22 degrees Celsius (72 degrees Fahrenheit) is desirable because it is easier to maintain safe humidity levels. Operating in this temperature range provides a safety buffer in the event that the air conditioning system goes down for a period of time.

The ambient relative humidity range of 45 to 50 percent is suitable for safe data processing operations. Most computer equipment can operate in a wide range (20 to 80 percent), but the range of 45 to 50 percent is recommended for the following reasons:

  • Optimal range helps protect computer systems from corrosion problems associated with high humidity levels.

  • Optimal range provides the greatest operating time buffer in the event of air conditioner control failure.

  • This range helps avoid failures or temporary malfunctions caused by intermittent interference from static discharges that may occur when relative humidity is too low.

Note:

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is easily generated, and hard to dissipate in areas of low relative humidity, such as below 35 percent. ESD becomes critical when humidity drops below 30 percent. It is not difficult to maintain humidity in a data center because of the high-efficiency vapor barrier and low rate of air changes normally present.

Ventilation and Cooling Requirements

Always provide adequate space in front and behind the rack to allow for proper ventilation. Do not obstruct the front or rear of the rack with equipment or objects that might prevent air from flowing through the rack. Rackmountable servers and equipment typically draw cool air in through the front of the rack and let out warm air out the rear of the rack. There is no air flow requirement for the left and right sides due to front-to-back cooling.

If the rack is not completely filled with components, then cover the empty sections with filler panels. Gaps between components can adversely affect air flow and cooling within the rack.

Relative humidity is the percentage of the total water vapor that can exist in the air without condensing, and is inversely proportional to air temperature. Humidity goes down when the temperature rises, and goes up when the temperature drops. For example, air with a relative humidity of 45 percent at a temperature of 24 degrees Celsius (75 degrees Fahrenheit) has a relative humidity of 65 percent at a temperature of 18 degrees Celsius (64 degrees Fahrenheit). As the temperature drops, the relative humidity rises to more than 65 percent, and water droplets are formed.

Air conditioning facilities usually do not precisely monitor or control temperature and humidity throughout an entire computer room. Generally, monitoring is done at individual points corresponding to multiple exhaust vents in the main unit, and other units in the room. Special consideration should be paid to humidity when using underfloor ventilation. When underfloor ventilation is used, monitoring is done at each point close to an exhaust vent. Distribution of the temperature and humidity across the entire room is uneven.

Oracle Exadata Racks have been designed to function while mounted in a natural convection air flow. The following requirements must be followed to meet the environmental specification:

  • Ensure there is adequate air flow through the server.

  • Ensure the server has front-to-back cooling. The air inlet is at the front of the server, and the air is let out the rear.

  • Allow a minimum clearance of 1525 mm (60 inches) at the front of the server, and 914 mm (36 inches) at the rear of the server for ventilation.

Use perforated tiles, approximately 400 CFM/tile, in front of the rack for cold air intake. The tiles can be arranged in any order in front of the rack, as long as cold air from the tiles can flow into the rack. Inadequate cold air flow could result in a higher inlet temperature in the servers due to exhaust air recirculation. The following table describes the recommended number of floor tiles:

Type of Oracle Exadata Database Machine or Oracle Exadata Storage Expansion Rack Recommended Number of Floor Tiles
Oracle Exadata full rack systems 4
Oracle Exadata half rack systems 3
Oracle Exadata quarter and eighth rack systems 1

DNS Configuration for Oracle Exadata Database Machine

Prior to receiving your Oracle Exadata Database Machine, use Oracle Exadata Database Machine Deployment Assistant. The assistant generates a file to be used when setting up the system. The host names and IP addresses specified in the assistant-generated file for the management network, client access network, and additional networks should be registered in Domain Name System (DNS) prior to initial configuration. In addition, all public addresses, single client access name (SCAN) addresses, and VIP addresses should be registered in DNS prior to installation.

The assistant-generated file defines the SCAN as a single name with three IP addresses on the client access network. The three SCAN addresses provide service access for clients to Oracle Exadata Database Machine. Configure DNS for round robin resolution for the SCAN name to these three SCAN addresses.

All addresses registered in DNS must be configured for both forward resolution and reverse resolution. Reverse resolution must be forward confirmed (forward-confirmed reverse DNS) such that both the forward and reverse DNS entries match each other.

Note:

Grid Naming Service (GNS) is not configured on Oracle Exadata Database Machine during initial configuration.

See Also:

IP Address Requirements for Oracle Exadata Database Machine

Oracle Exadata Database Machine requires a large number of host names and IP addresses during initial configuration. The number of IP addresses required for a particular network, such as the management network, depends on the type of system. The network configuration, such as host names and IP addresses, used during installation is generated from information when completing the Oracle Exadata Database Machine Deployment Assistant.

Configure the new IP addresses in your existing networks only after you have run Oracle Exadata Database Machine Deployment Assistant. All IP addresses in the assistant-generated file must be unassigned at the time of initial configuration. In addition, all IP addresses must be statically-assigned IP addresses, not dynamically-assigned (DHCP) addresses.

All InfiniBand addresses must be in the same subnet, with a minimum subnet mask of 255.255.240.0 (or /20). The subnet mask chosen should be wide enough to accommodate possible future expansion of the Oracle Exadata Database Machine and InfiniBand network.

Calculating the IP Address Requirements when Using Oracle VMs

The number of IP addresses depends on the physical deployment, as well as the number of virtual user domains. The following equations show how to calculate the number of IP addresses required for the physical deployment and Oracle VM deployment.

Physical deployment with a single cluster:

Number of management network IP addresses = 
    (number of databases servers)*2 +          \
    (number of storage servers)*2 +            \
    (number of PDUs) +                         \
    (number of IB switches) +                  \
    (number of Ethernet switches)

Number of client access network IP addresses = 
    (number of database servers)*2 + 3

Number of InfiniBand network IP addresses = 
    (number of database servers)*2 +           \
    (number of storage servers)*2

Number of additional network IP addresses =
    (number of database servers) * (number of additional networks)

Oracle VM deployment:

Number of management network IP addresses = 
    (number of databases servers)*2 +          \
    (number of Oracle VM user domains) +       \
    (number of storage servers)*2 +            \
    (number of PDUs) +                         \
    (number of IB switches) +                  \
    (number of Ethernet switches)              \

Number of client access network IP addresses = 
    (number of Oracle VM user domains)*2 +         \
    (number of Oracle RAC VM clusters)*3

Number of InfiniBand network IP addresses = 
    (number of Oracle VM user domains)*2 +         \
    (number of storage servers)*2

Number of additional network IP addresses =
    (number of database servers) * (number of Oracle VM user domains)

Table 1-40 shows the network requirements by component. The IP address numbers are per component, not rack.
