I move many systems to new data centers.  I need a quick place  I can find how tall the server is in "U" as well as the power consumed.

I need this for Sun, HP and other common servers.

That is like asking "How long is a car?"
Every model server from every manufacturer can be a different height. Most common now is only 1 or 2 U but you can still look at servers that are much more.
Define the models your looking at.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I didn't post power requirements because they vary with the internal components.

But the F6800 6460W Continuous Power.

blu I used the most probable model, the Sun Ultra Enterprise 450 to give him the size.
and I went with the F880 NetApp.

The information that you need for every model can be obtained from SunSolve under the Sun System Handbook section. Select "Servers" from the top left "Category" drop down, then pick your model. Under the "Quick Facts" section there is a row called "Rack Units". To the right of this is your pot of sunny gold. Power etc is also detailed here.

I know HP and every other vendor on this mudball offer the same, you'd do well to look. At a guess...www.hp.com, www.dell.com...err...www.ibm.com?
