IBM memory options

IBM processor options

These 4C, 6C, 8C, 10C, and 12C processors are ideal for data-intensive applications that range from data mining to evolving web services. Innovative technologies deliver processing speeds of up to 3.5 GHz/8.0 GTS with performance headroom for unpredictable server workloads and escalating computing needs.

Intel Xeon processors with 10 MB, 15 MB, 20 MB, 25 MB, or 30 MB cache feature Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology that provides maximum turbo mode duration and speed to improved power and thermal management. The new intelligent performance processors adapt to software workload environment, delivering more computing power when needed. The new Intel-integrated I/O integrates PCIe adaptors into the processor for lower latency and power while growing total capacity and bandwidth.

These enhancements add up to faster response times, support for more simultaneous users, and increased transaction workloads.

The Intel DP processors with Quickpath Interconnect (QPI), with two links, support SMP applications when installed in the second processor slot of all System x3500 M4 models with similar processors.

Note: DDR3 ECC DIMMs, combined with an integrated ECC memory controller, correct many soft and hard single-bit memory errors, and minimize disruption of service to LAN clients. Chipkill distributes information covered by error correction coding across separate memory chips, so if any of the chips fail, the data can still be reconstructed from the remaining chips, and the system can continue running.

Increased processor performance coupled with DDR memory enables you to retrieve and process information faster and more efficiently. DDR memory executes twice the number of operations per cycle than traditional SDRAM memory, effectively doubling the data exchange rate between memory and processors.

High-performance server subsystems

System x3500 M4 servers are high-throughput, two-way, SMP-capable network servers with excellent performance scalability when you add memory and a second processor. They incorporate powerful Intel Xeon processors with 10 MB, 15 MB, 20 MB, 25 MB, or 30 MB cache, model dependent. These flip-chip, land grid array 2011 (LGA2011) processors feature advanced transfer caches integrated onto the processor core and run at the same clock speed as the processor core.

Two processor connectors are standard on the system board to support installation of a second processor. High-speed, 1600/1866 MHz DDR3 RDIMMs are optimized for 1600/1866 MHz processor-to-memory subsystem performance. The System x3500 M4 server uses the Intel Patsburg chipset to maximize throughput from processor to memory and system I/O buses.

Planning information

Customer responsibilities
Customer setup

The x3500 M4 servers are designated as customer setup. Customer setup instructions are shipped with systems and options.

Bay configuration

The server contains 10 drive bays. The eight 3.5-inch hot-swap or simple-swap bays or the eight 2.5-inch hot-swap bays are located on the lower half of System x3500 tower models. These bays are ready for various supported hot-swap HDD drive option installation. The two bays on the top portion of tower models are designed primarily for removable media devices. One bay contains the DVD-ROM drive, while the remaining one 5.25-inch half-high bays can support tape backup or other devices.

SAS cabling considerations

The x3500 M4 server contains one backplane. This backplane supports eight 2.5-inch SAS/SATA drives and is connected with ServeRAID controller through two minSAS cables. The x3500 M4 system can contain four backplanes maximum, two are with expander.

The DVD is SATA attached.

External SAS attachment

In the configurations where an external SAS device attachment is required, a support SAS adapter is required.

External serial attachment

To attach an external serial cable RS-232, use the serial connector at the rear of the system.

Processor upgrades

The following processor upgrades are supported:

Supported memory options

The following memory options are supported:

8
768 GB maximum memory with 32 GB LRDIMMs, when available.
Power supply requirements

These models contain either one 750-watt or one 550-watt power supply, or one 900-watt power supply, model dependent, which are hot-swap capable supplies. When not using redundancy, one hot-swap supply has enough power to supply a fully loaded box. If redundancy is required, you should install additional power supplies to ensure sufficient power will be available. A fault light is illuminated when a power supplies fails.

Optional rack installations

These models are optionally installable as rack units and are designed so they can be installed in an industry-standard 19-inch rack cabinet such as the NetBAY42 or NetBAY25. The x3500 M4 server system requires a rack mount kit for rack installation. In addition, it can also be installed in the deeper NetBAY42 ER.

If you choose not to use an IBM rack, the cabinet must meet EIA-310-D standards for mounting flanges and hole clearances with front to rear mounting of 70 - 73 cm (27.5 - 28.5 in.). The rack must provide sufficient room in front of the forward EIA flange to allow for bezel attachment. The standard for 310-D suggests 49 mm (1.9 in.) clearance. It must also provide adequate room at the rear of the rack, behind the rear flange for cable management; the System x3500 M4 server requires approximately 16.6 cm (6.5 in.) in this space.

The rack should include perforated front and rear doors and must not prevent the flow of cool air into or out of the rack. The weight handling capacity of the rack is 22.7 kg (50 lb.). Finally, the rack must provide proper stabilization so that the rack does not become unstable when servers are pulled out of service.

Cable orders

Quad 10/100/1000 Mbps, full-duplex Ethernet PCI controllers, standard with the x3500 M4 server, are connected directly to independent RJ-45 connectors. The RJ-45 connectors provide a 10BaseT, 100Base-TX, or 1000Base-TX interface for connecting twisted-pair cable to the Ethernet network. Cabling is not included with the server. To connect the Ethernet controller to a repeater or switch, use a UTP cable with RJ-45 connectors at both ends. For 100/1000 Mbps operation, Category 5 cabling must be used. For 10 Mbps operation, Category 3, or better, cabling must be used.

There are no additional cabling requirements, other than for system power, keyboard, mouse, and monitor connections.

Installability

The System x3500 M4 server requires about 30 minutes for installation. Installation includes unpacking, setting up, and powering on the system. Additional time is required to install an operating system, additional adapters, or features.

Packaging

The system is shipped as a single package. The country kit carton is contained inside the top portion of the system unit carton.

Security, auditability, and control

Security and auditability features include:

It is a customer's responsibility to ensure that the server is secure to prevent sensitive data from being removed.

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communications facilities.

Electronic Service Agent™ and the IBM Electronic Support web portal are dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM Systems customers. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tool is a no-additional-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events, such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. The Electronic Service Agent tool can help you stay focused on your company's strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues. Servers enabled with this tool can be monitored remotely around the clock by IBM Support all at no additional cost to you.

Now integrated into the base operating system of AIX® 5.3, AIX 6.1, and AIX 7.1, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and utilization issues to IBM , which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by the Electronic Service Agent tool also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Support web portal, and used to improve problem determination and resolution by you and the IBM support team. To access the tool main menu, simply type "smitty esa_main", and select "Configure Electronic Service Agent ." In addition, ESA now includes a powerful web user interface, giving the administrator easy access to status, tool settings, problem information, and filters. For more information and documentation on how to configure and use Electronic Service Agent , refer to

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

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

Benefits

Increased uptime: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the "symptoms," diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24 x 7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer 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 securely transmits either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system. System inventory information is stored in a secure database, which is protected behind IBM firewalls. It is viewable only by the customer and IBM . The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM .

More accurate reporting: Since system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support center in conjunction with the service request, customers 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 IBM ID entered during activation, customers can view system and support information in the "My Systems" and "Premium Search" sections of the Electronic Support website at

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by Electronic Service Agent . Reports are available for any system associated with the customer's IBM ID. 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 Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.

Research Triangle Park, NC 27709
Attn: Dept JDJA/B203

Warranty period

Note: For configurations that support the RAID Battery, the RAID battery will be warranted for 1 year effective on its date of installation. All other product warranty terms for the machine remain unchanged.

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to a full warranty effective on the date of installation of the machine. An IBM part or feature which 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 effective on its date of installation. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service and service level of a part or feature is the same as the machine it is installed in.

Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service, depending on the type of warranty service specified below for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to 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. 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- and location-specific information.

The type of service is Customer Replaceable Unit (for example, keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, or hard disk drive) Service and On-site Service.

Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) Service

IBM provides a replacement CRU to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM at any time on your request. A CRU is designated as being either a Tier 1 (mandatory) or a Tier 2 (optional) CRU. Installation of Tier 1 CRUs, as specified in this announcement, is your responsibility. If IBM installs a Tier 1 CRU at your request, you will be charged for the installation. You may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM to install it, at no additional charge, under the type of warranty service specified below, On-site Service.

Based upon availability, a CRU will be shipped for next-business-day (NBD) delivery. IBM specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM . When return is required, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and you may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.

The following parts have been designated as Tier 1 CRUs:

The following parts are designated as Structural:

Structural parts: Purchase and replacement of structural parts (components, such as chassis assembly, top cover, and bezel) is customer responsibility. If IBM acquires or installs a structural component at your request, you will be charged for the service.

On-site Service

This provides On-site Repair, 9 hours per day, Monday through Friday excluding holidays, NBD response. IBM or your reseller will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well lit, and suitable for the purpose. On-site Service is not available in all countries, and some countries have kilometer or mileage limitations from an IBM service center. In those locations where On-site Service is not available, the normal in-country service delivery is used.

Call IBM at 1-800-IBM-SERV (426-7378) to assist with problem isolation for hardware to determine if warranty service is required. Telephone support may be subject to additional charges, even during the limited warranty period.

Calls must be received by 5:00 p.m. local time in order to qualify for NBD service.

International Warranty Service (IWS)

IWS is available in selected countries or regions.

The warranty service type and the service level provided in the servicing country may be different from that provided in the country in which the machine was purchased.

Under IWS, warranty service will be provided with the prevailing warranty service type and service level available for the IWS-eligible machine type in the servicing country, and the warranty period observed will be that of the country in which the machine was purchased.
