Overview
Bottom rule

Business climates are changing, and organizations must provide an infrastructure that can quickly adapt to those changes. In order to succeed, organizations need to work smarter and faster with greater agility and flexibility. The promise of cloud computing enables clients to do just that. Cloud computing, in its many forms (public, private, or hybrid) is quickly becoming both the delivery and consumption models for IT. However, getting the right mix between traditional IT, private cloud, and public cloud can be a challenge.

The new Power E870C server with OpenStack-based cloud management and open source automation enables clients to accelerate the transformation of their IT infrastructure for cloud while providing tremendous flexibility during the transition. In addition, the Power E870C server is designed to provide clients with increased security, high availability, rapid scalability, simplified maintenance, and management, all while enabling business growth and enabling clients to dramatically reduce costs. The Power E870C systems management capability speeds up and simplifies cloud deployment by providing fast and automated VM deployments, prebuilt image templates, and self-service capabilities all with an intuitive and user-friendly interface.

The Power E870C enterprise server is designed to provide the highest levels of reliability, availability, flexibility, and performance in order to bring you a world-class enterprise private and hybrid cloud infrastructure. Through enterprise-class security, efficient built-in virtualization that drives industry-leading workload density, and dynamic resource allocation and management, the server is designed to consistently deliver the highest levels of service across hundreds of virtual workloads on a single system.

The Power E870C server includes the cloud management software, and services to assist with clients' move to the cloud, both private and hybrid. Those additional capabilities include the following:

Private Cloud Management

  • IBM Cloud PowerVC Manager (OpenStack-based cloud management)

    Managing a private cloud requires software tools to help create a virtualized pool of compute resources, provide a self-service portal for end users, and policies for resource allocation, control, security, and metering data for resource billing. Management tools for private clouds tend to be service driven, as opposed to resource driven, because cloud environments are typically highly virtualized and organized in terms of portable workloads.

    The OpenStack-based IBM Cloud PowerVC Manager provides the self-service cloud portal for IBM Power Systems™. This self-service portal enables users to quickly request cloud resources and reliably deploy virtual machines with approval policies to maintain control over provisioning of cloud resources.

  • Cloud-based HMC Apps as a Service

    IBM intends to release a new HMC Apps as a Service offering that is planned to provide clients the capability to aggregate Power Systems performance and inventory data from across their enterprise, removing the burden of manual collection and aggregation of system information. IBM intends to host these IBM developed applications in a secure cloud and intends to provide health state, geo tagging, and threshold alerts that can be accessed through a secure portal from clients' mobile devices. IBM intends to entitle clients who purchase a new Power E870C server to this new service offering for no additional charge and without having to install any new software or infrastructure. The performance and inventory applications are initially planned to be offered in a technology preview in 2016 and with general availability planned for 2017.

  • Open source cloud automation and configuration tooling for AIX®

    IBM has expanded its commitment to keep key open source cloud management packages updated and to provide timely security fixes in order to enable clients to leverage open source skills. Power E870C server clients are well positioned to take advantage of key packages recently provided to enable cloud automation, including:

    • chef automation for configuration, deployment, and management. IBM is collaborating along with clients in this community to provide useful resources for using chef with AIX systems.
    • yum package management is now available, with repository access from both ftp and https protocols. rpm is also updated to enable automatic dependency discovery.
    • cloud-init and all dependencies are now available in the repository and includes support for licensed AIX users. For more information, go to the AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications website.

Hybrid cloud support

Hybrid cloud is quickly becoming the de facto state of IT. Two-thirds of organizations that blend traditional and cloud infrastructure together are already gaining advantage from their hybrid cloud. A hybrid cloud model enables the building and deploying of applications quickly with optimized utilization of resources and the lowering of costs. In addition, being able to centrally manage private, public, or dedicated cloud resources with a single management tool while securely connecting traditional workloads with cloud-native apps enables clients to respond to their dynamically changing business priorities in a more agile and timely fashion.

In order to assist with a client's move to a hybrid cloud infrastructure, the Power E870C server includes the following:

Hybrid infrastructure management tools

Power Systems OpenStack-based PowerVC management upwardly integrates into a variety of third-party hybrid cloud orchestration products, including IBM Cloud Orchestrator, VMware vRealize, and others. Clients can simply manage both their private cloud VMs and their public cloud VMs from a single, integrated management tool.

Securely connect system of record workloads and data to cloud native applications

IBM's API Connect and IBM WebSphere® Connect provide secure connectivity to cloud-based applications, giving clients the ability to rapidly develop new applications and services accelerating their time to value. IBM's Power to Cloud services can help clients get started with these solutions and in designing new applications leveraging IBM's Bluemix®, which enables clients' to rapidly build, deploy, and manage their cloud applications, while tapping a growing ecosystem of available services and runtime frameworks.

IBM Cloud Starter Pack

To help clients get started with their hybrid cloud infrastructure, the Power E870C offering includes entitlement to one year of an POWER8 Linux bare metal system in the IBM Cloud (SoftLayer).

Flexible capacity on demand

With the purchase of a new Power E870C server, clients now have the ability to convert previously purchased capacity (Mobile Processor activations and Elastic COD Processor Days) to SoftLayer capacity.

Power to Cloud Services

To assist clients with their move to the cloud, IBM is bundling 10,000 points of on-site cloud deployment services with every Power E870C system purchase. For those clients looking to create their own private cloud, expert services are available for cloud provisioning and automation with IBM Cloud PowerVC Manager with heavy focus on creating and supporting a DevOps cloud implementation.

For those clients looking for a hybrid cloud solution, Design for Hybrid Cloud Workshop services are available to provide instruction on how to produce best-of-breed applications using API Connect and Bluemix with Power Systems.

Description
Bottom rule

The Power E870C offering provides a rich set of capabilities for both cloud and traditional IT. Many of its cloud aspects are ordered outside of the 9080-MME hardware machine type. The following information focuses on just the 9080-MME.

The Power E870C server is a scale, SMP system that delivers its exceptional performance, scalability, reliability, availability, and serviceability with great virtualization capability for larger cloud environments. The E870C server uses modular building blocks called system nodes . The E870C can have one or two system nodes. Its related server, the E880C, can have one, two, three, or four system nodes.

System nodes

Each 5 EIA or 5U system node of the system has four air-cooled SCMs optimized for performance and scalability. The E870C SCMs have eight POWER8 cores running at up to 4.024 GHz and simultaneous multithreading executing up to eight threads per core. Each SCM has dual memory controllers to support up to 128 GB off-chip eDRAM L4 cache to deliver up to 230 GBps of sustained memory bandwidth or 920 GBps per node. Up to 410GBps of peak memory bandwidth from the L4 cache to memory DIMMs is provided per SCM or up to 1640 GBps per node. Using dual PCIe Gen3 I/O controllers, which are also integrated onto each SCM to further reduce latency, up to 256 GBps I/O bandwidth is available per node. Thus a Power E870C system bandwidth can help deliver over twice the performance per core of competitors, enabling applications to run faster and be more responsive.

Each system node has 32 CDIMM slots and can support up to 8 TB of DDR4 memory. Thus a two-node server can have up to 16 TB of memory. Each system node has eight PCIe slots that are all x16, low profile. Thus a two-node server can have up to 16 PCIe slots. PCIe Gen3 expansion units can optionally expand the number of PCIe slots on the server.

A system node is ordered using a processor feature. Each processor feature will deliver a set of four identical SCMs in one system node. All processor features in the system must be identical. Cable features are required to connect system node drawers to the system control unit and to other system nodes.

  • For a one-system node configuration, feature ECCA is required.
  • For a two-system node configuration, features ECCA and ECCB are required.

Processor core activations

Each Power E870C system requires a minimum of just eight permanent processor core activations using either static activations or Power IFL activations. This minimum is per system, not per node. The rest of the cores can be permanently or temporarily activated or remain inactive (dark) until needed. The activations are not specific to hardware cores or SCMs or nodes. They are known to the system as a total number of activations of different types and used or assigned by the Power hypervisor appropriately.

A variety of activations fit different usage and pricing options. Static activations are permanent and support any type of application environment on this server. Mobile activations are ordered against a specific server, but can be moved to any server within the Power Enterprise Pool and can support any type of application. Mobile-enabled activations are technically static, but can be converted to mobile at no charge when logistically or administratively eligible. Power IFL activations can only run Linux workloads. Temporary activations are used for CoD: Elastic, Utility, and Trial options.

32-core (#EPBA)
1-core static activation (#EPBQ)
1-core mobile activation (#EP2S)
1-core mobile-enabled activation (#EPBN)
4-core Power IFL package (#ELJG)

System control unit

The 2U system control unit provides redundant system master clocks and redundant system master service processors (MSPs). Additionally, it contains the Operator Panel, the System VPD, and optionally a DVD. One system control unit is required for each server. A unique feature number is not used to order the system control unit. One is shipped with each E870C server. Two service processors (FSPs) in the system control unit are ordered using two EU0A features. All system nodes connect to the system control unit using the cable features ECCA and ECCB.

The system control unit is powered from the system nodes. UPIC cables provide redundant power to the system control unit. Two UPIC cables attach to system node 1 and two UPIC cables attach to system node 2. They are ordered with features ECCA and ECCB. Just one UPIC cord is enough to power the system control unit and the rest are in place for redundancy.

If the optional DVD feature EU13 is ordered, use the 1.6 meter USB cable (#EBK4) to attach to a PCIe USB adapter located either in the system node or a PCIe Gen3 expansion unit. The DVD is a SATA DVD, but a USB-to-SATA converter is included in the EU13 feature.

Memory

IBM-custom DIMMs (CDIMMs) are extremely high-performance, high-reliability, high-function memory cards that contain L4 cache, intelligence, and 1600 MHz DRAM memory. Both DDR3 and DDR4 technology is employed and both provide the same 1600 MHz performance. CDIMMs are placed in CDIMM slots in the system node.

Each system node has 32 memory CDIMM slots, and at least half of the memory slots are always physically filled. Eight CDIMM slots are local to each of the four SCMs in the server, but SCMs and their cores have access to all the other memory in the server. At least half of the eight memory slots for each SCM must physically be filled. When filling the other four memory slots in the SCM, a quantity of four CDIMMs must be used. Thus the CDIMM slots are either 50% or 100% filled. The system node (four SCMs) CDIMM slots can have 16, 20, 24, 28, or 32 CDIMMs physically installed (quad plugging rules).

To assist with the quad plugging rules above, four CDIMMs are ordered using one memory feature. Select from 64 GB feature EM8J (4x16 DDR3), 128 GB feature EM8K (4x32 DDR3), 256 GB feature EM8L (4x64 DDR3), 512 GB feature EM8M (4x128 DDR3), or 1024 GB feature EM8Y (4x256 DDR4).

All CDIMMs must be identical on the same SCM, so if you are using eight CDIMMs, both memory features on an SCM must be identical. A different SCM in the same system node can use a different memory feature. For example, one system node could technically use 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB memory features. Note that DDR3 and DDR4 memory cannot be mixed on the same system node. With firmware 840, DDR3 and DDR4 memory cannot be mixed on the same multinode system.

To provide more flexible pricing, memory activations are ordered separately from the physical memory and can be permanent or temporary. Activation features can be used on either DDR3 or DDR4 memory features and used on any size memory feature. Activations are not specific to a CDIMM, but are known as a total quantity to the server. The Power hypervisor determines what physical memory to use. Memory activation features are:

  • 1 GB Memory Activation (#EMA5) (static)
  • 100 GB Memory Activations (#EMA6) (static)
  • 100 GB Mobile Memory Activations (#EMA7)
  • 100 GB Mobile Enabled Memory Activations (#EMA9) (technically static, but no charge to convert to mobile)
  • 512 GB Memory Activations for Power IFL (#EMB8)
  • 8 TB activations (#EMBA) ordered with 8TB memory using feature EM8Y CDIMMs
  • 4 TB activations (#EMB7) ordered with 4TB memory using feature EMB6 package

A minimum of 50% of the total physical memory capacity of a server must have permanent memory activations ordered for that server. For example, a server with a total of 8 TB of physical memory must have at least 4 TB of permanent memory activations ordered for that server. These activations can be static, mobile-enabled, mobile, or Power IFL. At least 25% must be static activations or Power IFL activations. For example, a server with a total of 8 TB physical memory must have at least 2 TB of static activations or Power IFL activations. The 50% minimum cannot be fulfilled using mobile activations ordered on a different server.

The minimum activations ordered with MES orders of additional physical memory features will depend on the existing total installed physical memory capacity and the existing total installed memory activation features. If you already have more than 50% activations ordered or installed for your existing system, then you can order less than 50% activations for the MES ordered memory. The resulting configuration after the MES order of physical memory and any MES activations must meet the same 50% and 25% minimum rules above.

For the best possible performance, it is generally recommended that memory be installed evenly across all system node drawers and all SCMs in the system. Balancing memory across the installed system planar cards enables memory access in a consistent manner and typically results in better performance for your configuration.

Though maximum memory bandwidth is achieved by filling all the memory slots, plans for future memory additions should be taken into account when deciding which memory feature size to use at the time of initial system order.

IBM Active Memory Expansion (AME) is an option that can increase the effective memory capacity of the system. See the Active Memory Expansion information later in the Description section.

System node PCIe slots

  • Each system node enclosure provides excellent configuration flexibility and expandability with eight half-length, low-profile (half-high) x16 PCIe Gen3 slots. The slots are labeled C1 through C8.
  • These PCIe slots can be used for either low-profile PCIe adapters or for attaching a PCIe I/O drawer.
  • A blind-swap cassette (BSC) is used to house the low-profile adapters that go into these slots. The server is shipped with a full set of BSCs, even if the BSCs are empty. A feature number to order additional low-profile BSC is not required or announced.
  • If additional Gen3 PCIe slots beyond the system node slots are required, a system node x16 slot is used to attach a six-slot expansion module in the I/O drawer. An I/O drawer holds two expansion modules that are attached to any two x16 PCIe slots in the same system node or in different system nodes.
  • PCIe Gen1, Gen2, and Gen3 adapter cards are supported in these Gen3 slots. The PCIe adapters that are supported are found in the Sales Manual, identified by feature number.
  • Concurrent repair and add/removal of PCIe adapter cards is done by HMC-guided menus or by operating system support utilities.
  • The system nodes sense which IBM PCIe adapters are installed in their PCIe slots; and if an adapter requires higher levels of cooling, the nodes automatically speed up the fans to increase airflow across the PCIe adapters.
  • Each system node supports up to four CAPI adapters (one per SCM), which can be located in slots C2, C4, C6, or C8.

PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer

The 19-inch PCIe Gen3 4U I/O Expansion Drawer (#EMX0) provides slots to hold PCIe adapters that cannot be placed into a system node. The PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer (#EMX0) and two PCIe Fan-Out Modules (#EMXF) provide 12 PCIe I/O full-length, full-height slots. One fan-out module provides six PCIe slots labeled C1 through C6. The C1 and C4 are x16 slots and C2, C3, C5, and C6 are x8 slots. Concurrent repair and add/removal of PCIe adapter cards is done by HMC-guided menus or by operating system support utilities.

PCIe Gen1, Gen2, and Gen3 full-high adapter cards are supported. The full-high PCIe adapters that are supported are found in the Sales Manual, identified by feature number. See the PCI Adapter Placement manual for details and rules associated with specific adapters supported and their supported placement in x8 or x16 slots.

Up to four PCIe I/O drawers per node can be attached. Using two 6-slot fan-out modules per drawer provides a maximum of 48 PCIe slots per system node. With two system nodes, up to 96 PCIe Gen3 slots (8 I/O drawers) are supported.

Additional PCIe I/O drawer configuration flexibility is provided by the option of using a "half" drawer consisting of just one PCIe fan-out module in the I/O drawer. This enables a lower-cost configuration if fewer PCIe slots are required. Thus a system node supports the following half-drawer options: one half drawer, two half drawers, three half drawers, or four half drawers. Because there is a maximum of four EMX0 drawers per node, a single system node cannot have more than four half drawers. A server with more system nodes can support more half drawers, up to four per node. A system can also mix half drawers and full PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers. The maximum of four PCIe Gen3 drawers per system node applies whether a full or half PCIe drawer.

PCIe Gen3 drawers can be concurrently added to the server at a later time. The drawer being added can have either one or two fan-out modules. Note that adding a second fan-out module to a half-full drawer does require scheduling downtime.

PCIe Gen3 I/O Drawer attachment and cabling

  • A PCIe X16 to Optical CXP converter adapter (#EJ07) and 2.0 M (#ECC6), 10.0 M (#ECC8), or 20 M (#ECC9) CXP 16X Active Optical cables (AOC) connect the system node to a PCIe Fan-Out Module in the I/O expansion drawer. One ECC6, ECC8, or ECC9 feature ships two AOC cables from IBM.
  • The two AOC cables connect to two CXP ports on the fan-out module and to two CXP ports on the EJ07 adapter. The top port of the fan-out module must be cabled to the top port of the EJ07 port. Likewise, the bottom two ports must be cabled together.
  • Recommendation: One I/O drawer can be attached to two different system nodes in the same server (one drawer module attached to one system node and the other drawer module attached to a different system node). This can help provide cabling for higher availability configurations.
  • Recommendation: Any attached PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer can be located in the same rack as the POWER8 server for ease of service, but they can be installed in separate racks if the application or other rack content requires it. If attaching a large number of cables such as SAS cables or CAT5/CAT6 Ethernet cables to a PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer, then it is generally better to place that EMX0 in a separate rack for better cable management.

    Limitation: When this cable is ordered with a system in a rack specifying IBM Plant integration, IBM Manufacturing will ship SAS cables longer than 3 meters in a separate box and not attempt to place the cable in the rack. This is because the longer SAS cable is probably used to attach to an EXP24S drawer in a different rack.

  • A maximum of 16 EXP24s Drawers is needed per PCIe Gen3 Drawer (#EMX0) to enable SAS cables to be properly handled by the feature EMX0 cable management bracket.

A BSC is used to house the full-high adapters that go into the fan-out module slots. The BSC is the same BSC as used with the previous generation server's 12X attached I/O drawers (#5802, #5803, #5877, #5873) and is often referred to as a Gen3 cassette. The drawer is shipped with a full set of BSCs, even if the BSCs are empty. A feature number to order additional full-high BSC is not required or announced.

EXP24S disk/SSD drawer

  • Direct-attached storage is supported with the EXP24S SFF Gen2-bay Drawer (#5887), an expansion drawer with twenty-four 2.5-inch form-factor SAS bays.
  • The Power E870C server supports up to 3,072 drives with a maximum of 128 EXP24S drawers. The maximum of 16 EXP24S drawers per PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer due to cabling considerations remains unchanged.
  • The EXP24S SFF Gen2-bay Drawer (#5887) is an expansion drawer with twenty-four 2.5-inch form-factor SAS bays. Slot filler panels are included for empty bays when initially shipped. The EXP24S supports up to 24 hot-swap SFF-2 SAS HDDs or SSDs. It uses only 2 EIA of space in a 19-inch rack. The EXP24S includes redundant AC power supplies and uses two power cords.
  • With AIX, Linux, and VIOS, you can order the EXP24S with four sets of six bays, two sets of 12 bays, or one set of 24 bays (mode 4, 2, or 1). With IBM i, you can order the EXP24S as one set of 24 bays (mode 1). Mode setting is done by IBM Manufacturing and there is no option provided to change the mode after it is shipped from IBM.
  • The EXP24S SAS ports are attached to a SAS PCIe adapter or pair of adapters using SAS YO or X cables.
  • To maximize configuration flexibility and space utilization, the system node does not have integrated SAS bays or integrated SAS controllers. PCIe adapters and the EXP24S can be used to provide direct access storage.
  • To further reduce possible single points of failure, EXP24S configuration rules consistent with previous Power Systems are used. IBM i configurations require the drives to be protected (RAID or mirroring). Protecting the drives is highly recommended, but not required for other operating systems. All Power operating system environments that are using SAS adapters with write cache require the cache to be protected by using pairs of adapters.
  • Recommendation: For SAS cabling ease, locate the EXP24S drawer in the same rack in which the PCIe adapter is located. Note, however, it is often a good availability practice to split a SAS adapter pair across two PCIe drawers/nodes for availability and that may make the SAS cabling ease recommendation difficult or impossible to implement.
  • HDDs and SSDs that were previously located in IBM POWER7® system units or in feature 5802 or 5803 12X-attached I/O drawers (SFF-1 bays) can be "re-trayed" and placed in EXP24S drawers. See feature conversions previously announced on the POWER7 servers. Ordering a conversion ships an SFF-2 tray or carriage onto which the client can place their existing drive after removing it from the existing SFF-1 tray/carriage. The order also changes the feature number so that IBM configuration tools can better interpret what is required.
  • A maximum of 16 EXP24s Drawers is needed per PCIe Gen3 Drawer (#EMX0) to enable SAS cables to be properly handled by the feature EMX0 cable management bracket.
  • Clients booting from a disk or SSD that is not on a storage area network (SAN) have a specify option when ordering their server to better reflect their configuration on IBM configuration tools. Clients can specify they will be using an existing EXP24S I/O drawer (#5887) for their system boot drive by using specify feature ELS0. This enables a client upgrading with the same serial number or migrating to a new serial number system to avoid buying an additional EXP24S.
  • A commonly used boot drive configuration for an EPX24S drawer (#5887) in mode 4 attached to four SAS adapters (#EJ0J full high or #EJ0M low profile) would use two X HD narrow 6Gb cables (#ECBJ-#ECBL) and a manufacturing specify code EJR5.

DVD and boot devices

  • A device capable of reading a DVD must be attached to the system and available to perform operating system installation, maintenance, problem determination, and service actions such as maintaining system firmware and I/O microcode at their latest levels. Alternatively, the system must be attached to a network with software such as AIX NIM server or Linux Install Manager configured to perform these functions:
    • Disk (HDD) or SSD located in an EXP24S drawer attached to a PCIe adapter
    • A network through LAN adapters
    • A SAN attached to Fibre Channel or Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) adapters and indicated to the server by the 0837 specify code
  • Assuming option 1 above, the minimum system configuration requires at least one SAS HDD or SSD in the system for AIX and Linux and two for IBM i. If you are using option 3 above, an HDD or SSD drive is not required.
  • For IBM i, a DVD drive must be available on the server when required.
  • A DVD can optionally be in the system control unit or one or more DVDs can be located in an external enclosure such as a 7226-1U3 Multimedia drawer.

Racks  

The Power E870C server is designed to fit a standard 19-inch rack. IBM Development has tested and certified the system in the IBM Enterprise rack (7014-T42, 7014-T00, #0551, or #0553). Clients can choose to place the server in other racks if they are confident those racks have the strength, rigidity, depth, and hole pattern characteristics that are needed. Clients should work with IBM Service to determine other racks' appropriateness. The Power E870C rails can adjust their depth to fit a rack that is 23.25 inches - 30.4375 inches in depth.

Recommendation: Order the Power E870C server with an IBM 42U enterprise rack (7014-T42 or #0553). An initial system order is placed in a 7014-T42 rack. A same serial-number model upgrade MES is placed in an equivalent feature 0553 rack. This is done to ease and speed client installation, provide a more complete and higher quality environment for IBM Manufacturing system assembly and testing, and provide a more complete shipping package.

The 7014-T42 or feature 0553 is a 2-meter enterprise rack that provides 42U or 42 EIA of space. Clients who don't want this rack can remove it from the order, and IBM Manufacturing will then remove the server from the rack after testing and ship the server in separate packages without a rack. Use the factory-deracking feature ER21 on the order to do this.

Five rack front door options are supported for the 42U enterprise rack (7014-T42 or #0553): the original acoustic door (#6249 (front and back) or #ERGB (front only)), the newer thinner acoustic door (#EC07/#EC08), the ruggedized door (#ERGD), the attractive geometrically accented door (#ERG7), and the cost-effective plain black front door (#6069). The front trim kit is also supported (#6272). The Power 780 logo rack door (#6250) is not supported.

When considering an acoustic door, note the majority of the acoustic value is provided by the front door because the servers' fans are mostly located in the front of the rack. Not including a rear acoustic door saves some floor space, which may make it easier to use the optional 8-inch expansion feature on the rear of the rack.

Recommendation: Leave the bottom 2U of the rack open for cable management when below-floor cabling is used. Likewise, if overhead cabling is used, it is strongly recommended the top 2U be left open for cable management. If clients are using both overhead and below-floor cabling, leaving 2U open on both the top and bottom of the rack is a good practice. Rack configurations placing equipment in these 2U locations can be more difficult to service if there are a lot of cables running by them in the rack.

The system node and system control unit must be immediately physically adjacent to each other in a contiguous space. The cables connecting the system control unit and the system node are built to very specific lengths. In a two-node configuration, system node 1 is on top, and then the system control unit in the middle and system node 2 is on the bottom. Use specify feature ER16 to reserve 5U space in the rack for a future system node and avoid the work of shifting equipment in the rack in the future. On a four-node configuration system, node 4 is on the top, then node 1 is below it, then the system control unit, then node 2, and finally node 3 is on the bottom.

With the 2-meter 7014-T42 or feature 0553, a rear rack extension of 20.3 cm (8 in.) (#ERG0) provides space to hold cables on the side of the rack and keep the center area clear for cooling and service access.

Recommendation: Include this extension when large numbers of thicker I/O cables are present or may be added in the future. The definition of a "large number" depends on the type of I/O cables used. Approximately 64 short-length SAS cables per side of a rack or around 50 longer-length (thicker) SAS cables per side of a rack is a good rule of thumb. Generally, other I/O cables are thinner and easier to fit in the sides of the rack and the number of cables can be higher. SAS cables are most commonly found with multiple EXP24S SAS drawers (#5887) driven by multiple PCIe SAS adapters. For this reason, it can be a very good practice to keep multiple EXP24S drawers in the same rack as the PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer or in a separate rack close to the PCIe Gen3 I/O drawer, using shorter, thinner SAS cables. The feature ERG0 extension can be good to use even with a smaller number of cables as it enhances the ease of cable management with the extra space it provides.

Multiple service personnel are required to manually remove or insert a system node drawer into a rack, given its dimensions and weight and content.

Recommendation: To avoid any delay in service, it is recommended that the client obtain an optional lift tool (#EB2Z). One EB2Z lift tool can be shared among many servers and I/O drawers. The EB2Z lift tool provides a hand crank to lift and position up to 159 kg (350 lb). The EB2Z lift tool is 1.12 meters x 0.62 meters (44 in. x 24.5 in.). Note that a single system node can weigh up to 75.7 kg (167 lb).

PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer and Racks

IBM Manufacturing can factory-integrate the PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer (#EMX0) with new server orders. Because expansion drawers complicate the access to vertical PDUs if located at the same height, IBM recommends accommodating PDUs horizontally on racks containing one or more PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawers. Following this recommendation, IBM Manufacturing will always assemble the integrated rack configuration with horizontally mounted PDUs unless CRSP (#0469) is on the order. When specifying CSRP, the client will provide the locations where the PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawers must be placed, avoiding locating those adjacent to vertical PDU locations, EIA 6 through 16 and 21 through 31.

Additional PCIe Gen3 I/O drawers (#EMX0) for an already installed server can be MES ordered with or without a rack. When clients want IBM Manufacturing to place these MES I/O drawers into a rack and ship them together (factory integration), then the racks should be ordered as features on the same order as the I/O drawers. Use feature 0553 (42U enterprise rack) for this order. Regardless of the rack-integrated system to which the PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer is attached, if the Expansion Drawer is ordered as factory-integrated, the PDUs in the rack will be defaulted to be placed horizontally to enhance cable management. Vertical PDUs can be used only if CSRP (#0469) is on the order.

After the rack with Expansion Drawers is delivered to the client, the client is allowed to rearrange the PDUs from horizontal to vertical. However, the IBM configurator tools will continue to assume that the PDUs are placed horizontally for the matter of calculating the free space still available in the rack for additional future orders.

Power distribution units (PDU)

  • The Power E870C server factory-integrated into an IBM rack uses horizontal PDUs located in the EIA drawer space of the rack instead of the typical vertical PDUs found in the side pockets of a rack. This is done to aid cable routing. Each horizontal PDU occupies 1U. Vertically mounting the PDUs to save rack space can cause cable routing challenges and interfere with optimal service access.
  • When mounting the horizontal PDUs, it is a good practice to place them almost at the top or almost at the bottom of the rack, leaving 2U or more of space at the very top or very bottom of the opening for cable management. Mounting a horizontal PDU in the middle of the rack is generally not optimal for cable management.
  • Two possible PDU ratings are supported: 60A/63A (orderable in most countries) and 30A/32A.
    • The 60A/63A PDU supports four system node power supplies and one I/O expansion drawer or eight I/O expansion drawers.
    • The 30A/32A PDU supports two system node power supplies and one I/O expansion drawer or four I/O expansion drawers.
  • Rack-integrated system orders require at least two of either feature 7109, 7188, or 7196.
    • Feature 7109: Intelligent PDU with Universal UTG0247 Connector is for an intelligent AC power distribution unit (PDU+) that will enable the user to monitor the amount of power being used by the devices that are plugged in to this PDU+. This AC power distribution unit provides twelve C13 power outlets. It receives power through a UTG0247 connector. It can be used for many different countries and applications by varying the PDU to Wall Power Cord, which must be ordered separately. Each PDU requires one PDU to Wall Power Cord. Supported power cords include the following features: 6489, 6491, 6492, 6653, 6654, 6655, 6656, 6657, and 6658.
    • Feature 7188: Power Distribution Unit mounts in a 19-inch rack and provides twelve C13 power outlets. Feature 7188 has six 16A circuit breakers, with two power outlets per circuit breaker. System units and expansion units must use a power cord with a C14 plug to connect to the feature 7188. One of the following line cords must be used to distribute power from a wall outlet to the feature 7188: feature 6489, 6491, 6492, 6653, 6654, 6655, 6656, 6657, or 6658.
    • Feature 7196: Three-phase Power Distribution Unit provides six C19 power outlets and is rated up to 48A. It has a 4.3 m (14 ft) fixed power cord to attach to the power source (IEC309 60A plug (3P+G)). A separate "to-the-wall" power cord is not required or orderable. Use the Power Cord 2.8 m (9.2 ft), Drawer to Wall/IBM PDU, (250V/10A) (#6665) to connect devices to this PDU. These power cords are different than the ones used on the feature 7188 and 7109 PDUs. Supported countries for the feature 7196 PDU are Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bermuda, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Cayman Islands, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guam, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Indonesia, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands Antilles, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, Surinam, Taiwan, Trinidad and Tobago, United States, and Venezuela.

System node power  

  • Four AC power supplies provide 2 + 2 redundant power for enhanced system availability. A system node is designed to continue functioning with just two working power supplies. A failed power supply can be hot swapped but must remain in the system until the replacement power supply is available for exchange.
  • Four AC power cords are used for each system node (one per power supply) and are ordered using the AC Power Chunnel feature (#EBAA). The chunnel carries power from the rear of the system node to the hot-swap power supplies located in the front of the system node where they are more accessible for service.
  • An alternative to using AC power is DC power. Four DC power supplies are used: Power Chunnel (#EBAD)

System control unit power

The system control unit is powered from the system nodes. UPIC cables provide redundant power to the system control unit. Two UPIC cables attach to system node 1, and two UPIC cables attach to system node 2. They are ordered with features ECCA and ECCB. Just one UPIC cord is enough to power the system control unit and the rest are in place for redundancy.

Hot-plug options  

The following options are hot-plug capable:

  • PCIe I/O adapters.
  • PCIe Gen3 I/O Drawers.
  • System node AC power supplies: Two functional power supplies must remain installed at all times while the system is operating.
  • System node fans.
  • System control unit fans.
  • System control unit Op Panel.
  • System control unit DVD drive.
  • UPIC power cables from system node to system control unit.
  • EXP24S SAS Storage enclosure drawer.
  • Drives in the EXP24S Storage enclosure drawer.

If the system boot device or system console is attached using an I/O adapter feature, that adapter may not be hot-plugged if a nonredundant topology has been implemented.

You can access hot-plug procedures in the product documentation at IBM Knowledge Center.

PowerVM  

PowerVM Enterprise virtualization is built into the Power E870C system and provides the complete set of PowerVM virtualization functionality needed for Power enterprise servers with POWER8 technology. This enables efficient resource sharing through virtualization, which enables workload consolidation and secure workload isolation as well as the flexibility to redeploy resources dynamically.

Other PowerVM technologies include the following:

  • Migrate from older generation Power servers to the Power E870C system.
  • System Planning Tool simplifies the process of planning and deploying Power Systems LPARs and virtual I/O.
  • Virtual I/O Server (VIOS) is a single-function appliance that resides in an IBM Power processor-based partition. It facilitates the sharing of physical I/O resources between client partitions AIX, Linux, or IBM i within the server.
  • With Live Partition Mobility, you can move a running AIX, Linux, or IBM i LPAR from one physical server to another with no downtime. Use this capability to do the following:
    • Evacuate workloads from a system before performing scheduled maintenance.
    • Move workloads across a pool of different physical resources as business needs shift.
    • Move workloads away from underutilized machines so that they can be powered off to save on energy and cooling costs. Active Memory Sharing enables memory to be dynamically moved between running partitions for optimal resource usage.
    • PowerVP Virtualization Performance monitor provides real-time monitoring of a virtualized system showing the mapping of VMs to physical hardware.

Active Memory Expansion

Active Memory Expansion is an innovative technology supporting the AIX operating system that enables the effective maximum memory capacity to be much larger than the true physical memory maximum. Sophisticated compression/decompression of memory content can enable memory expansion up to 100% or more. This can enable a partition to do significantly more work or support more users with the same physical amount of memory. Similarly, it can enable a server to run more partitions and do more work for the same physical amount of memory.

Active Memory Expansion uses CPU resource to compress/decompress the memory contents. The trade-off of memory capacity for processor cycles can be an excellent choice, but the degree of expansion varies on how compressible the memory content is. It also depends on having adequate spare CPU capacity available for this compression/decompression. Tests in IBM laboratories using sample workloads showed excellent results for many workloads in terms of memory expansion per additional CPU utilized.

The POWER8 chip includes a hardware accelerator designed to boost Active Memory Expansion efficiency and uses less POWER® core resource. You have a great deal of control over Active Memory Expansion usage. Each individual AIX partition can turn on or turn off Active Memory Expansion. Control parameters set the amount of expansion desired in each partition to help control the amount of CPU used by the Active Memory Expansion function. An IPL is required for the specific partition that is turning memory expansion. When they are turned on, monitoring capabilities are available in standard AIX performance tools such as lparstat, vmstat, topas, and svmon.

A planning tool is included with AIX, enabling you to sample actual workloads and estimate both how expandable the partition's memory is and how much CPU resource is needed. Any Power Systems model can run the planning tool. In addition, a one-time, 60-day trial of Active Memory Expansion is available to enable more exact memory expansion and CPU measurements. You can request the trial at the Power Systems Capacity on Demand web page.

Active Memory Expansion is enabled by chargeable hardware feature EM82, which can be ordered with the initial order of the system or as an MES order. A software key is provided when the enablement feature is ordered, which is applied to the system node. An IPL is not required to enable the system node. The key is specific to an individual system and is permanent. It cannot be moved to a different server.

The additional CPU resource used to expand memory is part of the CPU resource assigned to the AIX partition running Active Memory Expansion. Normal licensing requirements apply.

Active Memory Mirroring

The Power E870C server offers the Active Memory Mirroring for Hypervisor feature, which is designed to prevent a system outage in the event of an uncorrectable error in memory being used by the system hypervisor.

IBM i operating system  

For clients loading the IBM i operating system, the four-digit numeric QPRCFEAT value is generally the same as the four-digit numeric feature number for the processors used in the system. The special ordering processor features used for the CBU for PowerHA are exceptions to this rule. For the Power E870C:

  • Processor feature EPBA (4.02 GHz 32-core node) -- QPRCFEAT value for the system is EPBA.
If the highly efficient 5250 OLTP function is to be used on the server, order one or more EB2R feature or order the full system 5250 enablement feature EB30. Feature EB2R provides one processor core's worth of 5250 capacity, which can be spread across multiple physical processor cores or multiple partitions. Feature EB30 provides unlimited 5250 capacity on that server.

Capacity on demand

Several types of CoD processors and memory are available. They help meet changing resource requirements in an on demand environment by using resources installed on the system but not activated. Capacity Upgrade on Demand (CUoD) enables you to purchase additional permanent processor or memory capacity and dynamically activate it when needed.

Elastic CoD

Elastic CoD enables processors or memory to be temporarily activated in full-day increments as needed. Charges are based on usage reporting collected monthly. Processors and memory can be activated and turned off an unlimited number of times, whenever you want additional processing resources. With this offering, system administrators have an interface at the HMC (physical HMC or virtual appliance) to manage the activation and deactivation of resources. A monitor that resides on the server logs the usage activity. You must send this usage data to IBM monthly. A bill is then generated based on the total amount of processor and memory resources utilized, in increments of processor and memory (1 GB) days. Billing features specific to the processor feature and ordered as hardware MES orders against the server are used. Before using temporary capacity on your server, you must enable your server.

Elastic CoD processor-related features can vary by the processor feature.

32-core 4.02 GHz (#EPBA)
90X-day enablement (#EP9T)
1-day elastic billing feature using AIX/Linux (#EPJ6)
1-day elastic billing feature using IBM i (#EPJ7)
100-day elastic billing feature using AIX/Linux (#EPJ8)
100-day elastic billing feature using IBM i (#EPJ9)

Elastic CoD memory-related features are the same across the processor features or operating system.

  • 90X-day enablement (#EM9T)
  • 8 GB-day elastic billing feature (#EMJ4)
  • 800 GB-day elastic billing feature (#EMJ5)
  • 999 GB-day elastic billing feature (#EMJ6)

Utility CoD

Utility CoD provides additional processor performance on a temporary basis within the shared processor pool. Utility CoD enables you to place a quantity of inactive processors into the system node's shared processor pool, which then becomes available to the pool's resource manager. When the system node recognizes that the combined processor utilization within the shared pool exceeds 100% of the level of base (purchased/active) processors assigned across uncapped partitions, then a Utility CoD Processor Minute is charged and this level of performance is available for the next minute of use.

Utility CoD processor-related billing features vary by the processor feature.

32-core 4.02 GHz (#EPBA)
100-minute utility billing feature using IBM i (#EPJB)
100-minute utility billing feature using AIX/Linux (#EPJA)

Utility CoD is focused on processor cores and does not include temporary memory activations.

Trial CoD

Trial CoD provides the ability to activate inactive processors or memory for up to 30 days at no additional cost.

For more information on Elastic, Utility, and Trial CoD, see the Power Systems Capacity on Demand website.

Power Enterprise Pools

Power Enterprise Pools deliver the support to meet clients' business goals when it comes to:

  • Providing organizations with a dynamic infrastructure, reduced cost of performance management, improved service levels, and controlled risk management
  • Improving the flexibility, load balancing, and disaster recovery planning and operations of your Power Systems infrastructure
  • Enhanced reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) to handle the requirements to accommodate a global economy

When established, Power Enterprise Pools enhance the ability to freely move processor and memory activations from one system to another system in the same pool, without the need for IBM involvement or notification. This capability enables the movement of resources not only between like systems, but also between generations of Power Systems, and thus delivers unsurpassed flexibility for workload balancing and system maintenance. This capability is especially appealing to aid in providing continuous application availability during maintenance windows.

In addition to memory and processor activations, some specific IBM licensing entitlements can also be moved along with the processor core activations. For example, if server A and B were in the same pool and you moved 10 processor activations from A to B, you could also move up to 10 AIX or IBM i license entitlements, assuming the entitlements were no longer required for use on server A. At least one license for each server involved in the entitlement transfer must be installed. Eligible software is AIX, IBM i, Systems Director, VMControl, PowerSC™, PowerHA, and PowerVC.

Like the specific software above, IBM i clients can move 5250 Enterprise Enablement along with the processor core activations, assuming the enablements were no longer required on server A. At least one 5250 enablement for each server involved in the entitlement must be installed.

Power Enterprise Pools mobile activations are available for use on the Power 770, 780, and 795 systems, Power E870 and Power E880 systems, and now on the Power E870C and E880C systems. Two types of Power Enterprise Pools can be created:

  • A midrange pool that can consist of Power 770 (9117-MMD), Power E870 (9119-MME), Power E870C (9080-MME), and Power E880C (9080-MHE) servers.
  • A high-end pool that can consist of Power 780 (9179 -MHD), Power 795 (9119-FHB), Power E880 (9119-MHE), Power E870C (9080-MME), and Power E880C (9080-MHE) servers.
  • Both pools enable both processor and memory activations to move between servers within the pool. Systems with different clock speeds are supported, co-existing within the same pool.

All systems in a pool must be within one country. (The EU is treated as one country.)

Mobile and static activations  

A more flexible activation type is employed for Power Enterprise Pools. Historically, only "static" activations that could not move from server to server were available. These static activations remain available on the Power 770, 780, 795, E880, and E870 and are announced on the E870C and E880C, and a certain number are required per server. But mobile activation features can be moved in the Power Enterprise Pool. Mobile activations apply to both processor core activations and memory activations.

The Power E870C and E880C servers must have at least eight cores activated in static capability. All remaining processor core activations on these systems can optionally be mobile activations, be static activations, or be a mixture. Static and mobile core activations can co-reside in the same system and in the same partition.

A minimum of 50% of the memory on the system must be active. A maximum of 75% of all physically installed memory can have mobile activations. A minimum of 25% of all memory activations on a server must have static activations. Static and mobile memory activations can be in the same system and in the same partition. Mobile activation features are in 100 GB increments.

Existing static activation features can be converted to mobile activations for memory and cores. To provide administrative and pricing advantages, there are "regular" static core activations and "mobile-enabled" static core activations. The price of a mobile-enabled core activation is priced the same as a mobile core activation. There is often a price advantage to initially buying a mobile-enabled activation with a no-charge conversion to mobile compared to initially buying a static activation and converting to mobile.

The mobile activation features for the Power E870C server are as follows:

  • Memory
  • 100 GB Mobile Memory Activation (#EMA7)
  • 100 GB Mobile Enabled Memory Activation (#EMA9)
  • Processor - Mobile-enabled (technical static, financially mobile)
  • 1-core Mobile-Enabled Activation for EPBA 4.02GHz (#EPBN)
  • Processor - Mobile
  • 1-core Mobile Processor Activation (#EP2S)

The mobile activation feature numbers for the Power E870 server are the same as for the Power E870C server. See the Power 780 (D model) and Power 795 for their corresponding mobile activation features, which can be shared across high-end Power Enterprise Pools.

Additional features help enable the administrative records transfer of Enterprise Pools enablement and mobile memory activations during upgrades from a Power 770 server to a Power E870C server.

  • 100 GB Mobile Memory Activation (#EMAF)
  • 100 GB Mobile Enabled Memory Activations (#EMAG)
  • 1 Mobile processor activation (#EP2U)

The Power Enterprise Pools mobile activation features continue to exist for the Power 770, 780, and 795 servers and can co-exist in the same pool as the Power E870 and E870C features. The Power 770, 780, and 795 mobile activations features are described below.

Power Enterprise Pools and the HMC  

Each Power Enterprise Pool has a single master HMC (physical hardware HMC or a virtual appliance (vHMC)). The HMC that is used to create a Power Enterprise Pool is set as the master HMC of that pool. After a Power Enterprise Pool is created, under HMC firmware level 8.4, a single additional managing HMC can be configured. Either of these HMCs can do typical HMC tasks, but only the master HMC can do Power Enterprise Pool tasks. With HMC firmware 8.5, multiple managing HMCs can be configured for the pool. Under HMC firmware 8.5, all Power Enterprise Pool resource assignments must be performed by the master HMC, but any managing HMC connected to the master HMC offers a user interface to request Power Enterprise Pool tasks.

When powering on or restarting a server, ensure that the server is connected to the master HMC. This ensures that the required Mobile CoD resources are assigned to the server.

The maximum number of systems in a Power Enterprise Pool is 32 high-end or 48 midrange systems. An HMC can manage multiple Power Enterprise Pools but is limited to 1,000 total partitions. The HMC can also manage systems that are not part of the Power Enterprise Pool. Powering down an HMC does not limit the assigned resources of participating systems in a pool but does limit the ability to perform pool change operations.

After a Power Enterprise Pool is created, the HMC can be used to perform the following functions:

  • Mobile CoD processor and memory resources can be assigned to systems with inactive resources. Mobile CoD resources remain on the system to which they are assigned until they are removed from the system.
  • New systems can be added to the pool and existing systems can be removed from the pool.
  • New resources can be added to the pool or existing resources can be removed from the pool.
  • Pool information can be viewed, including pool resource assignments, compliance, and history logs.

Power Enterprise Pools qualifying machines

To qualify for use in the Power Enterprise Pool offering, a Power E870C server can participate in either a high-end Enterprise Pool or a midrange Enterprise Pool. Therefore, a Power E870C server can participate in a high-end pool, which must be one of the following:

  • IBM Power E880C with POWER8 processors, designated as 9080-MHE
  • IBM Power E870C with POWER8 processors, designated as 9080-MME
  • IBM Power E880 with POWER8 processors, designated as 9119-MHE
  • IBM Power 795 with POWER7 processors, designated as 9119-FHB
  • IBM Power 780 with POWER7 + processors, designated as 9179-MHD

Alternatively, a Power E870C server can participate in a midrange pool, which must be one of the following:

  • IBM Power E880C with POWER8 processors, designated as 9080-MHE
  • IBM Power E870C with POWER8 processors, designated as 9080-MME
  • IBM Power E870 with POWER8 processors, designated as 9119-MME
  • IBM Power 770 with POWER7 + processors, designated as 9117-MMD

Each E880C and E870C system must have installed Machine Code release level 840.30, or later, and be configured with at least the minimum amount of permanently active processor cores (listed below). Processor and memory activations that are enabled for movement within the pool will be in addition to these base minimum configurations.

Ordering Power Enterprise Pools  

Information for ordering and enabling mobile activations can be found at the Power Systems Capacity on Demand PDF.

Adding or removing systems from Power Enterprise Pools  

Adding or removing a system or any mobile resource associated with the system from an established Power Enterprise Pool requires notification to IBM. An updated addendum must be submitted to the Power Systems CoD Project Office (pcod@us.ibm.com) to make this change. When the update is processed, a new pool configuration file will be posted on the CoD website and must be downloaded to the controlling HMC.

Before removal from a pool, all assets, including mobile resources that were originally purchased with the system, must be returned to that same system serial number. Mobile assets belonging to a system may qualify for transfer to another system serial number, depending on specific qualifying guidelines, and will require additional administrative action. Contact your IBM representative for more information.

Systems removed from a pool can join another pool and contribute mobile activation resources to the new pool or use another system's mobile activation resources. Mobile activations require a pool ID to be recognized.

Power Integrated Facility for Linux

Power IFL enables users to easily acquire processor and memory activations on their enterprise-class Power Systems for use with their Linux operating systems and do so at pricing that is comparable to x86 systems. Users can reduce the complexity of operations associated with server sprawl by consolidating disparate, redundant, or underutilized Linux servers while taking advantage of enterprise-level resources, processes, and skills that are already in place. Power IFL is designed to enable clients to better exploit the performance, reliability, and scale of enterprise-class Power servers to improve quality of service and reduce the cost of managing their Linux ecosystem.

A consolidated environment for Linux workloads offers the following benefits to the enterprise environment:

  • Improves scaling performance
  • Delivers virtual network connections
  • Improves security
  • Offers seamless added capacity without interruption
  • Reduces overhead
  • Improves disaster recovery processes

Power IFLs represent a virtual stack engine using CoD IFL activations for enterprise-class systems. Enablement is packaged in units of four processor core activations, 32 GB of memory activations, and four PowerVM for Linux licenses. There are also savings with PowerVM software maintenance and hardware maintenance.

Order as many ELJG package features as wanted, up to 100% of the server's cores. Each ELJG package provides four processor core activations (#ELJ5 or #ELJ6 depending on the gigahertz) and 32 GB memory activations (#ELJH) and four PowerVM for Linux entitlements (#ELJJ). Separate Power IFL memory activations can be ordered using a 512 GB bundle (#EMB8).

Power IFL activations can only run Linux workloads. AIX or IBM i workloads can not be run with these activations.

Capacity BackUp for IBM i

The Capacity Backup (CBU) designation can help meet your requirements for a second system to use for backup, high availability, and disaster recovery. It enables you to temporarily transfer IBM i processor license entitlements and 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements purchased for a primary machine to a secondary CBU-designated system. Temporarily transferring these resources instead of purchasing them for your secondary system may result in significant savings. Processor activations cannot be transferred as part of this CBU offering, but programs such as Power Enterprise Pools are available for the function.

The CBU specify feature number 4891 is available only as part of a new server purchase or during an MES upgrade from an existing system to a 9080-MME. Certain system prerequisites must be met, and system registration and approval are required before the CBU specify feature can be applied on a new server. A used system that has an existing CBU feature cannot be registered. The only way to attain a CBU feature that can be registered is with a plant order.

Standard IBM i terms and conditions do not allow either IBM i processor license entitlements or 5250 OLTP (Enterprise Enablement) entitlements to be transferred permanently or temporarily. These entitlements remain with the machine they were ordered for. When you register the association between your primary and on-order CBU system, you must agree to certain terms and conditions regarding the temporary transfer.

After a CBU system designation is approved and the system is installed, you can temporarily move your optional IBM i processor license entitlement and 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements from the primary system to the CBU system when the primary system is down or while the primary system processor cores are inactive. The CBU system can then better support fail-over and role swapping for a full range of test, disaster recovery, and high availability scenarios. Temporary entitlement transfer means that the entitlement is a property transferred from the primary system to the CBU system and may remain in use on the CBU system as long as the registered primary and CBU system are in deployment for the high availability or disaster recovery operation. The primary system for a Power E870C server can be any of the following:

  • 9080-MHE
  • 9080-MME
  • 9119-MHE
  • 9119-MME
  • 9119-FHB
  • 9117-MMB
  • 9117-MMC
  • 9117-MMD
  • 9179-MHB
  • 9179-MHC
  • 9179-MHD

These systems have IBM i software licenses with an IBM i P30 software tier, or later. The primary machine must be in the same enterprise as the CBU system.

Before you can temporarily transfer IBM i processor license entitlements from the registered primary system, you must have more than one IBM i processor license on the primary machine and at least one IBM i processor license on the CBU server. An activated processor must be available on the CBU server to use the transferred entitlement. You may then transfer any IBM i processor entitlements above the minimum one, assuming the total IBM i workload on the primary system does not require the IBM i entitlement you would like to transfer during the time of the transfer. During this temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal records of its total number of IBM i processor license entitlements are not updated, and you may see IBM i license noncompliance warning messages from the CBU system. Such messages that arise in this situation do not mean you are not in compliance.

Before you can temporarily transfer 5250 entitlements, you must have more than one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement on the primary server and at least one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement on the CBU system. You may then transfer the entitlements that are not required on the primary server during the time of transfer and that are above the minimum of one entitlement. Note that if you are using software replication (versus PowerHA), you may well need more than a minimum of one entitlement on the CBU to support the replication workload.

For example, if you have a 64-core Power 770 as your primary system with twenty IBM i processor license entitlements (nineteen above the minimum) and two 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlements (one above the minimum), you can temporarily transfer up to nineteen IBM i entitlements and one 5250 Enterprise Enablement entitlement. During the temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal records of its total number of IBM i processor entitlements is not updated, and you may see IBM i license noncompliance warning messages from the CBU system.

If your primary or CBU machine is sold or discontinued from use, any temporary entitlement transfers must be returned to the machine on which they were originally acquired.

For CBU registration and further information, go to the IBM Capacity Backup for Power Systems website.

Power 770 serial number protected upgrade to Power E870C 

Power 770 (9117-MMD) upgrades to a Power E870C (9080-MME) server is supported. This gives Power 770 "D model" clients who choose the E870C server additional growth options in processor cores, gigahertz, maximum memory, and maximum I/O. Multiple feature conversions are introduced to provide the underlying ordering capability for this upgrade.


Reliability, availability, and serviceability

Reliability, fault tolerance, and data correction

The reliability of systems starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be highly reliable. During the design and development process, subsystems go through rigorous verification and integration testing processes. During system manufacturing, systems go through a thorough testing process to help ensure the highest level of product quality.

Redundant infrastructure

Considerable redundancy in the infrastructure of these systems is included so as to avoid failing components leading to system outages.

Such components include power supplies, fans, processor and memory voltage regulation outputs, global service processors, and processor clocks.

All of these redundant elements are present, even in single-system node systems.

Processor and memory availability functions

The Power Systems family continues to offer and introduce significant enhancements that are designed to increase system availability.

POWER8 processor functions

As previously provided in POWER7 and POWER7+, the POWER8 processor has the ability to do processor instruction retry for some transient errors and alternate processor recovery for a number of core-related faults. This significantly reduces exposure to both hard (logic) and soft (transient) errors in the processor core. Soft failures in the processor core are transient (intermittent) errors, often due to cosmic rays or other sources of radiation, and generally are not repeatable. When such an error is encountered in the core, the POWER8 processor will first automatically retry the instruction. If the source of the error is truly transient, the instruction will succeed and the system will continue as before.

Hard failures are more difficult, being true logical errors that will be replicated each time the instruction is repeated. Retrying the instruction will not help in this situation. As POWER7/POWER7 + technology, processors have the ability to extract the failing instruction from the faulty core and retry it elsewhere in the system for a number of faults, after which the failing core is dynamically deconfigured and called out for replacement in the PowerVM environment. These features are designed to avoid a full system outage.

As in POWER7 and POWER7+, the POWER8 processor includes single processor check stopping for certain faults that cannot be handled by the availability enhancements described in the preceding section. This significantly reduces the probability of any one processor affecting total system availability.

Partition availability priority

Also available is the ability to assign availability priorities to partitions. In the PowerVM environment, if an alternate processor recovery event requires spare processor resources in order to protect a workload, when no other means of obtaining the spare resources is available, the system will determine which partition has the lowest priority and attempt to claim the needed resource. On a properly configured POWER8 processor-based server, this enables that capacity to be first obtained from, for example, a test partition instead of a financial accounting system.

Cache availability  

The L2 and L3 caches in the POWER8 processor and L4 cache in the memory buffer chip are protected with double-bit detect, single-bit correct error detection code (ECC). In addition, a threshold of correctable errors detected on cache lines can result in the data in the cache lines being purged and the cache lines removed from further operation without requiring a reboot in the PowerVM environment. In addition, the L2 and L3 caches have the ability to dynamically substitute a spare bit-line for a faulty bit-lane, enabling an entire faulty "column" of cache, impacting multiple cache lines, to be repaired. An ECC uncorrectable error detected in these caches can also trigger a purge and delete of cache lines. This results in no loss of operation if the cache lines contained data that was unmodified from what was stored in system memory.

Modified data would be handled through Special Uncorrectable Error handling. L1 data and instruction caches also have a retry capability for intermittent errors and a cache set delete mechanism for handling solid failures.

Special Uncorrectable Error handling  

Special Uncorrectable Error (SUE) handling is designed to prevent an uncorrectable error in memory or cache from immediately causing the system to terminate. Rather, the system tags the data and determines whether it will ever be used again. If the error is irrelevant, it will not force a check stop. If the data is used, termination may be limited to the program/kernel or hypervisor owning the data; or the I/O adapters controlled by an I/O hub controller would freeze if data were transferred to an I/O device.

Memory error correction and recovery  

The memory has error detection and correction circuitry designed such that the failure of any one specific memory module within an ECC word by itself can be corrected absent any other fault.

In addition, a spare DRAM per rank on each memory port provides for dynamic DRAM device replacement during runtime operation. Also, dynamic lane sparing on the DMI link enables repair of a faulty data lane.

Other memory protection features include retry capabilities for certain faults detected at both the memory controller and the memory buffer. Memory is also periodically scrubbed to allow for soft errors to be corrected and for solid single-cell errors reported to the hypervisor, which supports operating system deallocation of a page associated with a hard single-cell fault.

Active memory mirroring for the hypervisor  

The POWER8 memory subsystem is capable of mirroring sections of memory by writing to two different memory locations, and when an error is detected when reading from one location, taking data from the alternate location. This is used by the POWER hypervisor in these systems to mirror critical memory within the hypervisor so that a fault, even a Special Uncorrectable Error (SUE) in the data, can be tolerated using the mirrored memory.

Dynamic processor and memory deallocation  

When correctable solid faults occur in components of the processor and memory subsystem, the system will attempt to correct the problem by using spare capacity in the failing component; using a spare column in an L2 or L3 cache, for example, a spare data line in a memory or processor bus; or a spare DRAM in memory. Use of such spare capacity restores the system to full functionality without the need to take a repair action.

When such spare capacity is not available, the service processor and POWER hypervisor may request deallocation of the component experiencing the fault. When there are sufficient resources to continue running partitions at requested capacity, the system will continue to do so. This includes taking advantage of unlicensed capacity update on demand processors and memory resources as well as licensed but unallocated resources.

When such unlicensed or unused capacity is used in this manner, a request for service will be made.

PCI extended error handling  

PCI extended error handling (EEH)-enabled adapters respond to a special data packet generated from the affected PCI slot hardware by calling system firmware, which will examine the affected bus, enable the device driver to reset it, and continue without a system reboot. For Linux, EEH support extends to the majority of frequently used devices, although some third-party PCI devices may not provide native EEH support.

Mutual surveillance  

The service processor monitors the operation of the firmware during the boot process and also monitors the hypervisor for termination. The hypervisor monitors the service processor and reports the service reference code when it detects surveillance loss. In the PowerVM environment, it will perform a reset/reload if it detects the loss of the service processor.

Environmental monitoring functions  

The Power Systems family does ambient and over temperature monitoring and reporting.

Uncorrectable error recovery  

When the auto-restart option is enabled, the system can automatically restart following an unrecoverable software error, hardware failure, or environmentally induced (AC power) failure.

Serviceability  

The purpose of serviceability is to efficiently repair the system while attempting to minimize or eliminate impact to system operation. Serviceability includes system installation, MES (system upgrades/downgrades), and system maintenance/repair. Depending upon the system and warranty contract, service may be performed by the client, an IBM representative, or an authorized warranty service provider.

The serviceability features delivered in this system provide a highly efficient service environment by incorporating the following attributes:

  • Design for SSR Set Up and Customer Installed Features (CIF).
  • Detection and Fault Isolation (ED/FI).
  • First Failure Data Capture (FFDC).
  • Guiding Light service indicator architecture is used to control a system of integrated LEDs that lead the individual servicing the machine to the correct part as quickly as possible.
  • Service labels, service cards, and service diagrams available on the system and delivered through the HMC.
  • Step-by-step service procedures available through the HMC.

Service environment  

The POWER8 processor-based system requires attachment to one or more HMCs.

The HMC is a dedicated server that provides functions for configuring and managing servers for either partitioned or full-system partition using a GUI or command-line interface (CLI). An HMC attached to the system enables support personnel (with client authorization) to remotely log in to review error logs and perform remote maintenance if required.

The I/O device and adapter diagnostics consists of stand-alone diagnostics, which are loaded from the DVD-RAM drive and online diagnostics. Online diagnostics, when installed, are resident with the AIX operating system on the disk or system. They can be booted in single-user mode (service mode), run in maintenance mode, or run concurrently (concurrent mode) with other applications. They have access to the AIX error log and the AIX configuration data.

  • Service mode enables checking of system devices and features.
  • Concurrent mode enables the normal system functions to continue while selected resources are being checked.
  • Maintenance mode enables checking of devices and adapters.

Note: Because the 9080-MHE and 9080-MME systems have an optional DVD-RAM, alternative methods for maintaining and servicing the system need to be available if the DVD-RAM is not ordered. An external internet connection must be available to maintain or update system firmware to the latest required level.

Concurrent maintenance-guided service procedures will continue to be supported by the Repair and Verify (R&V) component of the Service Focal Point application running on the HMC. Repair procedures that are not covered by the guided R&V component will be documented and available for display on any web browser-enabled system as well as on the HMC. These procedures are available through IBM Knowledge Center.

Service interface  

The service interface enables support personnel to communicate with the service support applications in a server using a console, an interface, or a terminal. Delivering a clear, concise view of available service applications, the service interface enables the support team to manage system resources and service information in an efficient and effective way. Applications available through the service interface are carefully configured and placed to give service providers access to important service functions.

Different service interfaces are used, depending on the state of the system, hypervisor, and operating environment. The primary service interfaces are:

  • Service Indicators
  • Operator Panel
  • Service Processor Menu
  • Operating System Service Menu
  • Service Focal Point on the HMC

In the Guiding Light service indicator implementation, when a fault condition is detected on the POWER8 processor-based server, a blue Enclosure Fault LED illuminates on the enclosure containing the failing part. The Guiding Light system pinpoints the exact part by blinking the amber FRU identify LED associated with the part to be replaced when selected by the servicer as part of the repair procedure. This action rolls up to the blue enclosure locate LED and down to the individual component to be serviced.

First Failure Data Capture and error data analysis  

First Failure Data Capture (FFDC) is a technique that helps ensure that when a fault is detected in a system, the root cause of the fault will be captured without the need to re-create the problem or run any sort of extending tracing or diagnostics program. For the vast majority of faults, a good FFDC design means that the root cause can also be detected automatically without servicer intervention.

FFDC information, error data analysis, and fault isolation are necessary to implement the advanced serviceability techniques that enable efficient service of the systems and to help determine the failing items.

In the rare absence of FFDC and Error Data Analysis, diagnostics are required to re-create the failure and determine the failing items.

Diagnostics  

General diagnostic objectives are to detect and identify problems so they can be resolved quickly. Elements of IBM's diagnostics strategy include:

  • Provide a common error code format equivalent to a system reference code with PowerVM, system reference number, checkpoint, or firmware error code.
  • Provide fault detection and problem isolation procedures. Support remote connection ability to be used by the IBM Remote Support Center or IBM Designated Service.
  • Provide interactive intelligence within the diagnostics with detailed online failure information while connected to IBM's back-end system.

Automatic diagnostics  

Because of the FFDC technology designed into IBM servers, it is not necessary to perform re-create diagnostics for failures or require user intervention. Solid and intermittent errors are designed to be correctly detected and isolated at the time the failure occurs. Runtime and boot-time diagnostics fall into this category.

Stand-alone diagnostics with PowerVM  

As the name implies, stand-alone or user-initiated diagnostics requires user intervention. The user must perform manual steps, including:

  • Booting from the diagnostics CD, DVD, USB, or network
  • Interactively selecting steps from a list of choices

Concurrent maintenance  

It is expected that the majority of the components that will fail will be able to be replaced using concurrent maintenance. These include power supplies, power cable, fans, op panel, real-time clock battery, and PCIe adapters.

The system also supports updating firmware with service packages, typically concurrently. The determination of whether a firmware release can be updated concurrently is identified in the readme information file that is released with the firmware.

Service labels  

Service providers use these labels to assist them in performing maintenance actions. Service labels are found in various formats and positions and are intended to transmit readily available information to the servicer during the repair process. Following are some of these service labels and their purpose:

  • Location diagrams: Location diagrams are located on the system hardware, indicating where to place hardware components.

Location diagrams may include location codes, drawings of physical locations, concurrent maintenance status, or other data pertinent to a repair. Location diagrams are especially useful when multiple components such as DIMMs, CPUs, processor books, fans, adapter cards, LEDs, and power supplies are installed.

  • Remove/replace procedures: Service labels that contain remove/replace procedures are often found on a cover of the system or in other spots accessible to the servicer. These labels provide systematic procedures, including diagrams, that detail how to remove or replace certain serviceable hardware components.
  • Arrows: Numbered arrows are used to indicate the order of operation and the serviceability direction of components. Some serviceable parts such as latches, levers, and touch points need to be pulled or pushed in a certain direction and in a certain order for the mechanical mechanisms to engage or disengage. Arrows generally improve the ease of serviceability.

Packing for service  

The following service enhancements are included in the physical packaging of the systems to facilitate service:

  • Color coding (touch points): Terracotta-colored touch points indicate that the system may not be required to be powered off to perform service to the FRU. This is dependent on system configuration, and preparatory steps may be required before the service action is taken. Blue-colored touch points indicate that the procedure may require that the unit or system be shut down before servicing. This is dependent on system configuration, and preparatory steps may be required before the service action is taken.
  • Tool-less design: Most FRUs support tool-less or simple tool designs. These designs require no tools or simple tools such as flathead screw drivers to service the hardware components.
  • A lift tool may be required for certain installation and service situations (system backplane). The service and installation scenario should be reviewed during system installation planning.
  • Positive retention: Positive retention mechanisms help to assure proper connections between hardware components such as cables to connectors, and between two cards that attach to each other. Without positive retention, hardware components run the risk of becoming loose during shipping or installation, preventing a good electrical connection. Positive retention mechanisms like latches, levers, thumb-screws, pop Nylatches (U-clips), and cables are included to help prevent loose connections and aid in installing (seating) parts correctly. These positive retention items do not require tools.

Error handling and reporting  

In the unlikely event of system hardware or environmentally induced failure, the system runtime error capture capability systematically analyzes the hardware error signature to determine the cause of failure. The analysis result will be stored in system NVRAM. When the system can be successfully restarted either manually or automatically, or if the system continues to operate, the error will be reported to the operating system. Hardware and software failures are recorded in the system log. An error log analysis (ELA) routine analyzes the error, forwards the event to the Service Focal Point (SFP) application running on the HMC, and notifies the system administrator that it has isolated a likely cause of the system problem.

The service processor event log also records unrecoverable checkstop conditions, forwards them to the SFP application, and notifies the system administrator. The system has the ability to call home through the operating system to report platform recoverable errors and errors associated with PCI adapters/devices. When the information is logged in the SFP application, if the system is properly configured, a call home service request will be initiated and the pertinent failure data with service parts information and part locations will be sent to an IBM service organization. Client contact information and specific system-related data such as the machine type, model, and serial number, along with the error log data related to the failure, are sent to IBM Service.

Live Partition Mobility  

With Live Partition Mobility, users can migrate an AIX, Linux, or IBM i partition running on one POWER partition system to another POWER system without disrupting services. The migration transfers the entire system environment, including processor state, memory, attached virtual devices, and connected users. It provides continuous operating system and application availability during planned partition outages for repair of hardware and firmware faults.

When initially purchasing a system, the client needs to consider the effect on the workloads that servicing the system will make. It is expected that most of the system FRUs that fail will be replaced while the system is still powered on, using Concurrent Maintenance. For the remainder of the FRUs, the entire system must be powered off to service the FRU. For clients with critical workloads that cannot afford to be stopped, the use of Live Partition Mobility needs to be planned for when the initial purchase of the system is made.

Service processor  

The service processor provides the capability to diagnose, check the status of, and sense the operational conditions of a system. It runs on its own power boundary and does not require resources from a system processor to be operational to perform its tasks.

Under PowerVM the service processor supports surveillance of the connection to the HMC and to the system firmware (hypervisor). It also provides several remote power control options, environmental monitoring, reset, restart, remote maintenance, and diagnostic functions, including console mirroring. The service processor menus (ASMI) can be accessed concurrently with system operation, enabling nondisruptive abilities to change system default parameters.

Call home  

Call home refers to an automatic or manual call from a client location to the IBM support structure with error log data, server status, or other service-related information. Call home invokes the service organization in order for the appropriate service action to begin. Call home can be done through the HMC. While configuring call home is optional, clients are encouraged to implement this feature in order to obtain service enhancements such as reduced problem determination and faster and potentially more accurate transmittal of error information. In general, using the call home feature can result in increased system availability. The Electronic Service Agent™ application can be configured for automated call home. See the next section for specific details on this application.

IBM Electronic Services  

Electronic Service Agent and the IBM Electronic Services web portal comprise the IBM Electronic Services solution, which is dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM clients. IBM Electronic Service Agent is a no-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. Electronic Service Agent can help focus on the client's company business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues.

System configuration and inventory information collected by Electronic Service Agent also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Services web portal and used to improve problem determination and resolution between the client and the IBM support team. As part of an increased focus to provide even better service to IBM clients, Electronic Service Agent tool configuration and activation comes standard with the system. In support of this effort, a new HMC External Connectivity security whitepaper has been published, which describes data exchanges between the HMC and the IBM Service Delivery Center (SDC) and the methods and protocols for this exchange. To read the whitepaper and prepare for Electronic Service Agent installation, go to the "Security" section at the IBM Electronic Service Agent website.

Benefits: increased uptime  

Electronic Service Agent is designed to enhance the warranty and maintenance service by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can optimize the time monitoring the symptoms, diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. And 24x7 monitoring and reporting means no more dependency on human intervention or off-hours client personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM. The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to securely transmit either through the internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem to provide clients a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a client's system.

For additional information, go to the IBM Electronic Service Agent website.

More accurate reporting  

Because system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support Center in conjunction with the service request, clients are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM, problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support  

Using the IBMid entered during activation, clients can view system and support information in the "My Systems" and "Premium Search" sections of the Electronic Services website.

The Electronic Services web portal is a single internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This web portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The newly improved My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent-enabled clients to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by IBM Electronic Service Agent. Reports are available for any system associated with the client's IBMid. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledgebase. Using Premium Search and the Service Agent information that has been collected from the system, clients are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.

Note: Government regulations, such as those prescribed by OSHA or European Community Directives, may govern noise level exposure in the workplace and may apply to you and your server installation. This IBM system is available with an optional acoustical door feature that can help reduce the noise emitted from this system. The actual sound pressure levels in your installation depend upon a variety of factors, including the number of racks in the installation; the size, materials, and configuration of the room where you designate the racks to be installed; the noise levels from other equipment; the room ambient temperature, and employees' location in relation to the equipment. Further, compliance with such government regulations also depends upon a variety of additional factors, including the duration of employees' exposure and whether employees wear hearing protection. IBM recommends that you consult with qualified experts in this field to determine whether you are in compliance with the applicable regulations.

Notes:

  • Additional optional features can be added, as wanted. IBM i systems require a DVD to be available to the system. This DVD can be located in the system control unit (DVD feature #EU13) or it can be located externally in an enclosure like the 7226-1U3. A USB PCIe adapter such as feature EC45 is required for feature EU13. A SAS PCIe adapter such as feature EJ11 is required to attach a SATA DVD in the 7226.
  • Feature-coded racks are allowed for I/O expansion only.
  • A machine type/model rack, if wanted, should be ordered as the primary rack.
  • A minimum number of eight processor activations must be ordered per system.
  • A minimum of four memory features per system node is required.
  • Power Integrated Facility for Linux Package feature (#ELJG) is a chargeable feature that will cause IBM configuration tools to add the proper quantity of no-charge features associated with processor activations (#ELJ5), and memory activations (#ELJH). This feature delivers a quantity of four processor activations, a quantity of thirty-two 1 GB memory activations and a quantity of four PowerVM® for Linux licenses for four processor cores. When the number of ELJG features ordered is equal to defined system minimum order requirements for static processor and memory activations, the activation requirement is satisfied.
  • At least 50% of available memory must be activated through a combination of features EMA5, EMA6, and EMA9.
  • Memory sizes can differ across the four SCMs of the system node, but the eight CDIMM slots connected to the same SCM must be filled with identical memory sizes (one or two identical memory features per SCM).
  • If SAN Load Source Specify (#0837) is ordered, features 0040, 0041, 0043, 0047, and 0308 are not supported.
  • The language group is auto-selected based on geographic rules.
  • No feature numbers are assigned for the following:
    • Four AC power supplies are delivered as part of the system node. No features are assigned to power supplies. Four line cords are auto-selected according to geographic rules.
    • Two default AC PDU to wall cables are included. No features are assigned. Cables are auto-selected according to geographic rules.
    • There must be one system control unit on each system. The system control unit is considered the system with the system serial number.
  • One HMC is required for every 9080-MME (physical hardware HMC or a virtual appliance (vHMC)); however, a communal HMC is acceptable. HMCs supported on POWER8 hardware are 7042-CR5, or later.

Stand-alone and rack integration options  

The 9080-MME default order will be without a rack (stand-alone).

The 9080-MME integration in a 2.0 m (19 in.) or 42 EIA enterprise rack (7014-T42 or #0553) provides the following:

  • Proper dimensions
  • Mounting surfaces
  • Power distribution
  • Ventilation
  • Stability
  • Other functional requirements

A single 7014-T42 rack can be ordered containing one or two Power E870C systems. Note that care must be taken anytime you order a pair of Power 870 servers in a rack to ensure there is space for horizontal PDUs, future system node additions, and anything else the rack needs to contain.

A client can order one factory-integrated system node and later order a second system node to be installed in the same rack at the client establishment. On initial order, if the rack contains a system node, the 7014-T42 machine/type must be ordered. 1 If a MES same-serial-number upgrade, the 0553 feature must be ordered. 1

1 See also deracking feature ER21.

Only horizontal PDUs are used by IBM Manufacturing in racks hosting the 9080-MME system nodes. Each PDU will occupy a separate 1 EIA to aid cable routing.

Minimum requirements for a 7014-T42 rack integration option:

The 7014-T42 rack is optional for the 9080-MME.

Feature number Description
ER10 x 1 Rack Content Specify first enclosure - 7 EIA
or

ERG0 x 1 Rack Rear Extension (defaulted and recommended, but optional)

Hardware Management Console (HMC) machine code

If attaching an HMC to a new server or adding function to an existing server that requires a firmware update, the HMC machine code may need to be updated. To determine the HMC machine code level required for the firmware level on any server, go to the following website to access the Fix Level Recommendation Tool (FLRT) on or after the planned availability date for this product. FLRT will identify the correct HMC machine code for the selected system firmware level.

If a single HMC is attached to multiple servers, the HMC machine code level must be updated to the server with the most recent firmware level. All prior levels of server firmware are supported with the latest HMC machine code level.

An HMC is required to manage POWER8 processor-based system nodes implementing partitioning. Multiple POWER8 processor-based system nodes can be supported by a single HMC.

If an HMC is used to manage any POWER8 processor-based system node, the HMC must be 7042-CR5, or later.

When PowerVC is enabled, 4 GB of RAM is recommended. HMC 7042-CR5 ships with a default of 2 GB RAM.

Java™ is supported on POWER8 servers. For best exploitation of the outstanding performance capabilities and most recent improvements of POWER8 technology, IBM recommends upgrading Java-based applications to Java 8, Java 7, or Java 6, whenever possible. For those clients who want to run Java in AIX environments, see the IBM AIX Download and service information web page.

For Linux (including POWER® Linux), see the Linux Download information web page.

For those clients who want to run Java in IBM i environments, read the following planning statements:

  • Java 1.4.2 and Java 5 are not supported environments for IBM i 7.2 or IBM i 7.1.
  • Java 6 is not a supported environment for IBM i 7.3.

Clients are strongly encouraged to move to a more current supported version: Java 6, Java 7, Java 7.1, or Java 8.

Limitations

The 9080-MME and 9080-MHE have the following limitations:

  • Memory rules and restrictions for the Power E880C (9080-MHE) and E870C (9080-MME) servers:
    • The first (in plug order) 16 memory DIMM slots of each system node must always be populated to ensure each SCM has at least one memory feature. Using the same memory capacity feature (equal memory CDIMM sizes) can typically provide optimal memory performance, but is not required.
  • PowerVM Enterprise Edition is standard on the 9080-MHE and 9080-MME. Enterprise Edition includes PowerVP™, Active Memory Expansion (AME), Active Memory Deduplication, and Live Partition Mobility (LPM).
    Note: AME is not part of PowerVM Enterprise Edition. AME is an extra feature (#EM82) and will be charged.
  • Active Memory Mirroring is standard on the 9080-MHE and 9080-MME.
  • For same-serial-number upgrades, all features that are not supported on the 9080-MHE and 9080-MME must be removed.
  • Static memory activations can be converted during a D-model, same-serial-number upgrade, and mobile activations can be moved to POWER8 servers in a Power Systems Enterprise Pool.
  • The system node or system control unit or PCIe3 I/O drawer does not provide a serial port to which a UPS communication cable can be attached for IBM i such as is available on smaller Power servers. Clients should use standard data center electrical power backup options used by many larger data centers.
  • The PCIe Gen3 I/O Expansion Drawer has a few adapter plugging considerations:
    • The following adapters are only supported in slot c6 of either fanout module (maximum of two adapters per drawer)
      • 4-Port Async EIA-232 PCIe Adapter (#5785)
      • PCIe 2-Line WAN w/Modem (#2893/2894)
      • POWER GXT145 PCI Express® Graphics Accelerator (#5748)
    • The following 4-port SAS adapters are not supported in slots C2 or C5 of either fanout module (maximum of eight adapters per drawer).
      • PCIe3 RAID SAS Adapter Quad-port 6Gb x8 (#EJ0J)
      • PCIe3 SAS Tape/DVD Adapter Quad-port 6Gb x8 (#EJ10)
      • PCIe3 12 GB Cache RAID SAS Adapter Quad-port 6Gb x8 (#EJ0L)
  • PCIe3 12 GB Cache RAID PLUS SAS Adapter Quad-port 6Gb x8 (#EJ14)

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.

To learn how Electronic Services can work for you, go to the Support Portal website.

Products - terms and conditions

Warranty period

One year

To obtain copies of the IBM Statement of Limited Warranty, contact your reseller or IBM. An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to the full warranty period specified by IBM. An IBM part or feature that replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature are the same as those for the machine in which it is installed.

Warranty services

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of warranty service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone, or electronically through an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. If applicable to your product, parts considered Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty service.

Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country-specific and location-specific information.
