I think that's the same with all the /computer/ equipment that I've seen 
which connects to 3ɸ power.  A single phase could be used for all of it. 
  But I'm told that it's simpler / more economical (from a wiring / 
cable plant point of view) to deliver more power to the equipment as 3ɸ 
than it is 1ɸ.
