Overview

Top rule

Enhancements for the IBM® Power® System E980 and IBM Power System E950 servers include:

  • A processor enhancement introduces support of a three-processor module configuration on the Power E950 server. The 3-processor/socket support provides even more agility to the E950 by adding new 24-core, 30-core, 33-core, and 36-core configuration options.
  • These adapters are available for the Power E950 (9040-MR9) server:
    • The PCIe3 2-port 100 GbE (NIC and RoCE) QSFP28 Adapter x16 can support significantly greater bandwidth with low latency and minimize CPU overhead by more efficiently using memory access. This offloads the CPU from I/O networking tasks, improving performance and scalability.
    • The PCIe2 4-Port USB 3.0 Adapter provides support for USB devices.
    • The PCIe Gen4 x16 2-port InfiniBand EDR adapter provides high-speed connectivity with other servers or IB switches.
  • The following adapter features are supported only for the Power E980 (9080-M9S) server: EC2M, EC2N, EC37, EC38, EN0M, and EN0N. These features are not available for initial orders.
  • The following features are supported only for the Power E950 (9040-MR9) server: EC2N, EC38, EJ0L, EJ27, EJ28, and EN0M. These features are not available for initial orders.

Description

Top rule

Hardware enhancements are available for the Power System E980 (9080-M9S) server.

PCIe3 2-port 100 GbE (NIC and RoCE) QSFP28 Adapter x16 (#EC3M)

This PCIe Gen3 Ethernet x16 adapter provides two 100 Gb QSFP28 ports. The adapter supports both NIC and IBTA RoCE standards. RoCE is Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) over Converged Ethernet. Using RoCE, the adapter can support significantly greater bandwidth with low latency and minimize CPU overhead by more efficiently using memory access. This offloads the CPU from I/O networking tasks, improving performance and scalability. IBM offers either passive copper twinax cables up to 2 meter in length or active optical cables up to 100 meters in length. See features EB5J - EB5M for a 0.5M, 1.0M, 1.5M, and 2.0M copper cable. See features EB5R - EB5Y for a 3 m, 5 m, 10 m, 15 m, 20 m, 30 m, 50 m, and 100 m active optical cable. Transceivers are included on each end of these QSFP28 cables. Alternatively to the above supported cables, you may choose to order an IBM qualified and supported QSFP28 optical transceiver (#EB59) to put into the adapter and provide your own 100GE optical cabling with your own QSP28 optical transceiver for the other end. Either one or both of the adapter's two QSP28 ports can be populated. When two ports are filled, both can have copper cables, both can have optical cables, or one can be copper and one can be optical. Features EC3L and EC3M have identical electronics and function and CCIN (2CEC), but have different tailstock brackets. Feature EC3L is low profile and feature EC3M is full high. The adapter is based on a Mellanox ConnectX-4 adapter that uses a ConnectX-4 EN Network Controller.

PCIe2 4-Port USB 3.0 Adapter (#EC46)

The PCIe Gen2 x8 short 4-port USB 3.0 adapter provides support for USB devices. In applications that require the use of a USB extension cable for keyboards, use one feature 4256 adapter per port. The feature EC45 and EC46 USB adapters are electronically identical with the same 58F9 CCIN. They differ physically in their tailstock. Feature EC45 is low profile and feature EC46 is full high.

PCIe4 2-port 100 Gb EDR IB CAPI adapter (#EC65)

The PCIe Gen4 x16 2-port InfiniBand EDR adapter provides high-speed connectivity with other servers or IB switches. Each port maximum of 100 Gb assumes no other system or switch bottlenecks are present. A PCIe Gen4 x16 PCIe slot is required. This adapter is sourced from Mellanox Corporation, based on ConnectX-5 technology. The adapter supports the InfiniBand Trade Association (IBTA) specification version 2. The two 100 Gb ports have QSFP+ connections that support EDR cables, either EDR DAC or EDR optical. One adapter can support either or both types of cable. The user can choose to cable up just one port if they want. Transceivers are included in the cables. IBM cable features EB50 - EB54 (copper shorter distance) and feature EB5A - EB5H (optical longer distance) are supported or their copper or optical Mellanox equivalents are supported. Other cables are not supported. The feature EC64 and EC65 adapters are electronically and functionally identical with the same CCIN of 2CF2. Feature EC64 is low profile and feature EC65 is full high.

Feature conversions

The existing components being replaced during a model or feature conversion become the property of IBM and must be returned.

Feature conversions are always implemented on a "quantity of one for quantity of one" basis. Multiple existing features may not be converted to a single new feature. Single existing features may not be converted to multiple new features.

The following conversions are available to clients on February 12, 2019:

Feature conversions for 9040-MR9 adapter features:

IBM Electronic Services

Top 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 Service Agent website.
