Gold and Platinum Power Supplies

August 21, 2014

What’s the difference?

HP offer Gold and Platinum Common Slot Power Supplies for servers. Have you ever wondered what the difference is? Yes, the Platinums are more power-efficient but it goes a lot further than that!

HP Intelligent Power Distribution Units use HP Power Discovery Services to automatically track new server and storage installations for devices which have Platinum*, Platinum Plus or Titanium power supplies installed. The power supplies automatically provide identification information such as server name, Universally Unique Identifier (UUID) number, and IP address to the iPDU.

Next time your client wants an HP rack solution don’t forget to upsell Intelligent Power Supplies with the HP Intelligent Power Distribution Unit.

Are you using HP iQuote yet? If you want to Configure, Price and Quote HP Solutions with maximum efficiency contact your distributor today!

* Some Platinum power supplies do not support HP Power Discovery Services; these have a black power socket rather than blue. By using HP iQuote you can be sure which PSUs support HP Power Discovery Services.
