Mainstream 2.5-inch SAS SSDs

New 931 GB, 1.86 TB, and 3.72 TB Mainstream 2.5-inch SAS SSDs are introduced for POWER8 servers using SAS bays. These drives are supported in POWER8 system units (SFF-3) and in an expansion drawer such as the EXP24SX attached to POWER8 servers (SFF-2). With their large capacity and lower cost per gigabyte, the drives can provide a very cost-effective and footprint-effective solution for many mainstream (previously known as read-intensive) configurations. Note these drives are designed for workloads with modest write requirements, including as boot drives where SSD performance is desired. These drives are rated at 1 DWPD, meaning you can write 931 GB, 1.86 TB, or 3.72 TB to the SSD every day for five years, nearly 1.7 PB for the 960 GB SSD.

When Mainstream 2.5-inch SAS SSDs are placed in the EXP24SX enclosures, drives can take advantage of the extra power allotted to each enclosure slot, enabling small-op read-intensive workloads to support up to roughly 18% more IOPS (130k versus 160k IOPS for 4KiB reads).

To learn more about mainstream configurations, see IBM Knowledge Center.

15k rpm 4k Block Cached HDDs

A refresh of the 300 GB 15k rpm HDDs (#ESNJ, #ESNL, #ESNK, #ESRL, #ESNM, and #ESRM) and 600 GB 15k drives (#ESNN, #ESNQ, #ESNP, #ESRP, #ESNR, and #ESRR) with 4k block sizes are introduced to provide more configuration flexibility. The drive includes enhanced caching capability with 256 MB DRAM, which may improve performance compared to previous 15K disk drives.

Mainstream 2.5-inch SAS SSDs

The mainstream (previously known as read intensive) 931 GB, 1.86 TB, and 3.72 TB capacity solid-state drives are designed to provide a lower cost per terabyte of SSD storage in a space-efficient footprint. A 2.5-inch SAS SSD is mounted on an SFF-3 carrier/tray for a POWER8 system unit or mounted on an SFF-2 for placement in an expansion drawer such as the EXP24SX drawer when attached to a POWER8 server. The drive is formatted to use 4224-byte (4k) sectors and does not support the 4k JBOD 4096-byte sector. It also does not use the 512-byte or 528-byte (5xx) sector formatting.

When in the POWER8 system units with SAS SFF-3 bays, the drive is run by the integrated SAS controller such as found in Power® S812L, S822L, S824L, S814, S812, S822, S824, E850, and E850C servers. When in the EXP24SX (SFF-2), the drive is run by a PCIe3 SAS RAID adapter, such as the feature EJ0L, EJ14, EJ0J, EJ0M, EL3B, or EL59. These PCIe3 controllers support 4k drives on POWER8 servers. Earlier-generation SAS controllers don't support 4k drives. When placed in an SSD array of one of these PCIe3 controllers, the array must be all mainstream SSD or all non-mainstream SSD. A SAS controller can currently run both 4k and 5xx drives, but they must be in separate arrays. Drives in an array should be the same or similar capacity. HDD and SSD can only be mixed in the same array when part of an Easy Tier® array (RAID 5TS, RAID 6T2 or RAID 10T2) provided by SAS RAID controllers such as the feature EJ0L or EJ14 or POWER8 integrated backplane controllers.

Like all SSDs, the performance of the 931 GB, 1.86 TB, and 3.72 TB mainstream SSDs are excellent compared to a disk drive (HDD). Read performance is on par with higher write endurance SSDs such as the enterprise SSD. Write performance when compared to enterprise SSDs is somewhat slower but still more than 25 times that of a standard 15K HDD. As with any drive, either HDD or SSD, the number of drives is still a factor in achieving satisfactory performance, especially for IBM i.

This is a mainstream drive and is not suitable for write-intensive workloads. Write-intensive workloads are those that write more to the drive each day than its rated capacity. Assuming a typical heavily random workload at about 3,394 TB of writes to the drive, it will be at its maximum projected write capability. Writes past the drive's maximum write capacity will continue to work for some period of time, but much more slowly. A Predictive Failure Analysis message will indicate that it is time to replace the drive. If the predictive failure is ignored and writes continue to be sent to the drive, eventually the drive will be unable to accept write commands and will accept only read commands for a period of time. A failed write will result in a more serious error message indicating that the drive must be replaced.

The nature of the workload has a great impact on the maximum write capacity. For example, if a high percentage of more sequentially oriented writes is used instead of random writes, the maximum write capacity can be significantly larger. The user should occasionally check to see what percentage of the drive's write life remains and adjust the workload or drive assignment as it makes sense to do so. Checking is done by inspecting the SSD Mainstream Fuel Gauge. This capability is available through AIX®, IBM i, and Linux®. The query or command to view the information varies by operating system. Check the remaining life of the mainstream drives individually, even if all are in the same array.

If the drive reaches its maximum write capability during the warranty period, IBM will replace it at no charge to the client. The warranty period of the drive is defined by the server machine type under which the drive feature code is ordered and will be either three years or one year for Power Systems. After the warranty period, the drive's replacement is not covered under IBM maintenance if the maximum number of writes has been achieved. You would need to order a new, chargeable SSD as its replacement. Other aspects of SSD maintenance are consistent with SSDs that are not mainstream.

Multiple feature codes are used to identify the proper Mainstream SSD characteristics. Key characteristics are:

  • Multi-OS server or Linux-only server
  • If Multi-OS, then it is planned for AIX/Linux or for IBM i
  • SFF-3 or SFF-2 carrier/trays

Multi-OS server feature numbers

931 GB ES83 and ES84 1 ES8Y and ES8Z 1
1.86 TB ES92 and ES93 1 ES96 and ES97 1

Other feature codes order a quantity of 150 of the SFF-2 drives (#EQ8Y, EQ96, #EQE7, #EQ8Z, #EQ97, #EQE8, #ELQ6, #ELQ7, and #ELQY) and no-charge load source specify features (#ELZ2, #ELZ3, #ELZ7, #ELZ8, #ELZZ, and #ELZ4).

Software requirements (assuming the server supports this software level):

  • AIX supported
  • Linux supported
  • IBM i supported

See the feature description section of the Sales Manual for specific software requirements.

15k rpm 4k Block Cached disk drives

The 2.5-inch (SFF)) 15k rpm SAS disk drives are supported on an SFF-3 carrier/tray for a POWER8 system unit or mounted on an SFF-2 carrier/tray such as the EXP24SX drawer when attached to a POWER8 server. The disk is formatted for 4224 byte sectors. If 283 GB drive is formatted to 4096 byte sectors, the capacity would be 300 GB. If a 571 GB drive is formatted to 4096 byte sectors, the capacity would be 600 GB. The drive includes enhanced caching capability with 256 MB DRAM, which may improve performance compared to previous disk drives.

When in the POWER8 system units with SAS SFF-3 bays, the drive is run by the integrated SAS controller such as found in the Power S812L, S822L, S824L, S814, S812, S822, S824, E850, and E850C servers. When in the EXP24SX (SFF-2), the drive is run by a PCIe3 SAS RAID adapter, such as the feature EJ0L, EJ14, EJ0J, EJ0M, EL3B, or EL59. These PCIe3 controllers support 4k drives on POWER8 servers. Earlier-generation SAS controllers don't support 4k drives.

Limitation: Drives cannot be combined in the same array as a drive of the same capacity but using different sector size. However, drives can be combined with noncached drives of the same capacity in the same array.

Key characteristics are:

  • Multi-OS server or Linux-only server
  • If Multi-OS, it is planned for AIX/Linux or for IBM i
  • SFF-3 or SFF-2 carrier/trays

Multi-OS server feature numbers

15K rpm HDD For SFF-3 4k For SFF-2 4k

The Multi-OS HDDs for AIX/Linux and IBM i are identical. There are two feature numbers versus one feature number because IBM i configurations require to be formatted to 4224 byte sector, whereas AIX and Linux only strongly recommend protection. Different feature numbers enable IBM configuration tools such as e-config to apply the appropriate rules even when both OS environments or VIOS are on the same server.

Linux-only server feature numbers

15K rpm HDD For SFF-3 4k For SFF-2 4k
300 GB ESRL ESRM
600 GB ESRP ESRR

Note: There are also feature codes that order a quantity of 150 of the SFF-2 drives (#ESPL, ESPQ, #ESVM, #ESVR, #ESPM, #ESPR) and no-charge load source specify features (#ELUJ, #ELUL, #ELUN, and #ELUQ).

Software requirements (assuming the server supports this software level):

  • AIX supported
  • Linux supported
  • IBM i supported

See the feature description section of the Sales Manual for specific software requirements.

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 IBM Electronic Support website.
