High Temperature and Humidity Operation
 Increased reliability when server is installed in less
environmentally controlled location
– RD550 and RD650 support operating in temperatures up
to 45° C / 113° F with relative humidity up to 90%
A4
A3
A2
– Continuous operation is supported – 24 hours/day, 365
days/year
 Reduced operating expenses by reduction in amount
of energy needed to cool
– Data center cooling costs can be greater than the cost of
powering the IT equipment itself. One way to reduce
these cooling costs is by operating the data center at a
higher temperature
ASHRAE is an organization that focuses on
designing for sustainable technology. This
support coincides with their A4 specification
