This 5U chassis holds up to 10 server trays vertically and fits in a standard rack. The Innovation Zone in the back of the chassis holds up to 10 I/O modules, with dual HPE FlexibleLOMs supporting 1GbE or 10GbE.

Power is delivered through an external 1.5U power shelf (14.4 kW or 15.9 kW) supporting up to 6 chassis depending on power load. Choose from single or 3-phase AC input, with 12 x 12V DC cables from the power shelf to the chassis. An HPE Advanced Power Management module helps optimize rack, chassis, and server power insight and management.

Flexible, Modular Infrastructure

The 5U HPE Apollo a6000 chassis accommodates up to 10 hot-swap server trays.

The Innovation Zone at the back of the chassis features 10 I/O modules with choice of 1GbE or 10GbE.

System fans
The Chassis includes 5 dual rotor fan modules as standard
Server tray blank kit
HPE Apollo a6000 Service tray kit service events may disrupt tray population order and best practices. Correct tray population order is required to maintain recommended thermals. This full length service tray can be used during service events to prevent improper thermals caused by removal of server trays
Server blank kit
HPE Apollo a6000 Server Blank KitUse this server blank tray kit in the absence of a server tray in one of the assigned server slots to maintain the airflow in the chassis to meet thermal requirements during operation
Rack airflow requirements
The increasing power of new high-performance processor technology requires increased coolingefficiency for rack-mounted servers. For maximum cooling, HPE racks are recommended to allow theseracks to be fully loaded with servers using the latest processors
HPE Advanced Power Manager (HPE APM)
The HPE APM is an optional rack level solution. It will automatically discover hardware components and enable server level power on and off, servermetering, aggregate dynamic power capping, configurable power-up dependencies and sequencing,consolidated Ethernet access to all resident iLOs, and asset management capabilities
