Environmental Specifications

The following table lists the temperature, humidity, and altitude specifications, as well as acoustic noise, vibration, and shock specifications for the storage server.

Table 3  Environmental Specifications
Ambient temperature (Does not apply to removable media)
The ambient temperature for systems operating in an Exadata cabinet is 41˚F to 90˚F (5˚C to 32˚C) up to 2,953 feet (900 meters).

Note -  Maximum ambient operating temperature is derated by 1 degree C for every 300 meters elevation beyond 900 meters, up to a maximum altitude of 3,000 meters elevation.

–40˚F to 158˚F (–40˚C to 70˚C)
70˚F to 74˚F (21˚C to 23˚C)
Relative humidity
  • 10% to 90% noncondensing, short term 25˚F to 113˚F (–5˚C to 55˚C)

  • 5% to 90% noncondensing, but not to exceed 0.024 kg of water per kg of dry air (0.053 lbs water/2.205 lbs dry air)

Up to 93% noncondensing 100.4˚F (38˚C) maximum wet bulb
45% to 50% relative humidity
Maximum 9,840 feet (3,000 meters) at 95˚F (35˚C)

Note -  In China markets, regulations may limit installations to a maximum altitude of 6,562 feet (2,000 meters).

Maximum 39,370 feet (12,000  meters)

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