IBM Intelligent Cluster description

Computing applications or environments often have more requirements than an individual computer or server can address. These requirements may be best addressed by several computers working together. A cluster is a group of interconnected individual computers, working together on a single problem, or consolidating workloads from multiple servers. Although these computers can operate individually, they are managed from a single point of control using cluster management software.

The Intelligent Cluster offering, a high-performance scalable cluster, is built on:

  • Intel Xeon™ processors
  • IBM PureFlex™ , iDataPlex® , rack-optimized, and blade-based servers

The Intelligent Cluster supports Microsoft HPC Server 2008, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11 (64-bit) service pack 2, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2. All hardware components are configured and integrated into racks in the factory prior to shipment. You must obtain the prerequisite version of the Linux operating system and device drivers as specified by IBM .

  • Either you or a qualified IBM Business Partner can install the required software.
  • You can use the optional installation services to have IBM install the operating system, device drivers, and General Parallel File System ( GPFS ).

For intensive storage applications, IBM provides a service for all cluster hardware components and IBM software during the applicable warranty period. The IBM Intelligent Cluster warranty support does not include support for the software. Software service and support can be purchased separately through an optional IBM Support Line service.

Power and cooling advantages for IBM Intelligent Cluster

The IBM energy management portfolio tackles the challenge to increase power and thermal efficiency and help reduce costs on many levels. Inside the system, all System x and BladeCenter servers start with Calibrated Vectored Cooling™ technology. This feature allows dual paths of air to each component, helping to improve uptime and longevity, and reducing wasteful air movement and heat generation. It can be coupled with more energy-efficient power supplies.

For clusters within a rack, System x servers are designed to work at full density in a well-planned rack solution. They can also operate at extended temperature ranges to keep the system up and running, even in some cases in extreme temperature and many potential failure conditions. IBM rack-based cluster solutions are engineered to optimize air flow and prevent undesirable recirculation within the rack, so that servers can run in optimal temperature conditions.

IBM blade-based clusters enable you to pack more processors into the same power and cooling envelope, as well as better utilize floor space and right-size data center design. With BladeCenter servers, less power per processor means more processing capacity per kilowatt. The BladeCenter runs cooler to deliver greater reliability.

For dense data center environments, IBM delivers smart rack-level heat solutions, such as the super-efficient IBM Rear Door Heat eXchanger. The water-cooled door can dissipate heat generated from the back of the rack to reduce the overall room temperature. With this combination of benefits at the server and data center level, IBM systems can offer strong power and cooling benefits to IBM Intelligent Cluster clients.

IBM Rear Door Heat eXchanger (32R0712)

The Rear Door Heat eXchanger for IBM Enterprise Racks helps keep your growing data center at a safer temperature without adding air conditioning units. This unobtrusive solution brings more cooling capacity to areas where the heat is greatest, around racks of servers with multiple, more powerful processors.

Design simplicity delivers efficient cooling

The size and appearance of the Rear Door Heat eXchanger are similar to those of a standard rack acoustical 66 cm (26 in) wide door. It adds a mere 10 cm (4 in) to the depth of a rack, yet a single door may remove up to 50,000 Btu of heat (or approximately 15 kW). The door is designed to attach to a 42U-high IBM Enterprise Rack and swings wide to provide unrestricted access to electrical components. Sealed coils, filled with above-dewpoint, chilled water, passively remove a significant amount of the heat generated in a fully populated rack. This cooling efficiency may help eliminate the need for additional ac power and the associated construction cost.

Factory integration - Product customization services for IBM Intelligent Cluster

The Intelligent Cluster features several hardware validation and test services collectively referred to as product customization services. These services include the integration of hardware and software on System x servers in innovative manufacturing facilities. You can deploy systems in almost any IT environment. This means your IT resources can be better used elsewhere.

This statement is especially true for Linux cluster solutions. Given the complexity of a Linux cluster, you want the confidence that the solution arrives properly configured and ready to integrate in your data center. These options are integrated into the servers. The System x platform also offers a Blade Integration Service, which, for a flat fee, includes installation of:

  • Hardware options on the blades
  • Options in the BladeCenter chassis
  • Blades in the chassis

IBM can install the chassis in an Enterprise Rack and have it shipped to you. Performing the same services on-site would take hours or even days.

In addition, Intelligent Cluster manufacturing offers specific services for the IBM Intelligent Cluster called Cluster Systems Validation and Test to confirm that all system settings are enabled and tested to enable smooth on-site deployment:

  • Enable BIOS management
  • Configure BIOS on each node
  • Set up ASM and RSA

System x iDataPlex ecosystem

IBM System x iDataPlex Rack (7825)

This specially designed rack is used in iDataPlex configurations.

The iDataPlex Rack is designated as IBM-installed for easy on-site installation. This designation, coupled with the factory integration services and optional on-site installation and verification of software, results in a ready-to-run cluster system.

The iDataPlex solution offers increased density in a holistic rack design. For ease of serviceability, all hard drive, planar, and I/O access is from the front of the rack.

Power and cooling advantages

iDataPlex servers help pack more processors into the same power and cooling envelope, better utilize floor space, and "right size" data center design. With the iDataPlex solution, less power per processor means more processing capacity per kilowatt. The iDataPlex can run cooler to deliver greater reliability.

System x iDataPlex Rear Door Heat eXchanger (43V6048)

For dense data center environments, IBM offers smart rack-level heat management solutions like the super-efficient Rear Door Heat eXchanger. The water-cooled door is designed to dissipate heat generated from the back of the rack to help reduce the overall room temperature. With this combination of benefits at the server and data center level, IBM systems deliver strong power and cooling benefits to iDataPlex clients.

The iDataPlex Rear Door Heat eXchanger for iDataPlex racks helps reduce the air temperature in your growing data center to approximately the same air temperature as that entering the rack, alleviating the need to add air conditioning units. This unobtrusive solution brings more cooling capacity to areas where the heat is greatest, around racks of servers with multiple, more powerful processors.

Design simplicity delivers cooling efficiency that can help alleviate or even eliminate the need for additional air conditioning power and the associated construction cost.

IBM High Density Plus PDU

The new PDUs make it quick and simple to deploy, protect, and manage your high-density System x iDataPlex rack environment. iDataPlex Enterprise PDU+ models combine receptacle density with advanced intelligent power management capabilities that seamlessly integrate with IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager™ .

Software requirements
Offering

GPFS is a high-performance cluster file system for homogeneous and heterogeneous clusters of AIX® , Linux , and Microsoft Windows nodes that gives users shared access to files spanning multiple disk drives. By dividing individual files into blocks and reading/writing these blocks in parallel across multiple disks, GPFS delivers very high bandwidth. In addition, multiple data paths can also eliminate single points of failure, making GPFS highly available for mission-critical applications. GPFS is based on a shared disk model, offering lower overhead access to disks not directly attached to the application nodes, and using a distributed protocol to provide data coherence for access from any node.

GPFS also incorporates a powerful ILM policy engine, which enables complex policy-based placement and file-based migration, without path changes, between multiple tiers of storage, including tape. Additionally, GPFS includes hardware-independent snapshots and mirroring functions, enabling clients to better virtualize storage hardware.

Target market

The era of smarter computing is here, and it is being driven by the need for more data and faster data access. Low-latency application performance in applications such as life sciences, real-time analytics, rich media, seismic processing, weather forecasting, telecommunications, and financial markets requires high-performance storage architectures.

Clients in these segments span nearly all industries (Aerospace, Defense, Automotive, Chemicals and Petroleum, Electronics, Education, Government, Healthcare and Life Sciences, Retail, Media and Entertainment, Financial Services, and many others).

Big data and analytics applications are becoming more common as enterprises capture and gather more real-time data, and perform more complex analytics on that data in order to develop competitive advantage. The need for a high-performance file system that enables scalable and reliable high-speed access and the ability to manage all that data is crucial for leveraging all of this information to make actionable decisions.

An additional driver of big data is the growing need to access and manage highly fragmented data sources, some that are near line, others that are streaming in real time. This data spans beyond traditional data centers into vast wide area networks that span the globe.

Applications using GPFS span proprietary credit card transaction and banking applications, streaming digital television and preproduction/postproduction video editing, computer-aided engineering, high availability databases, seismic and weather modeling, retail inventory and sales analysis, and more.

GPFS was originally designed for streaming media, then was used for high-performance computing, and is now used in nearly all industries for a variety of mission-critical applications.

GPFS is targeted to high-performance computing and commercial applications where clients have chosen AIX , Linux , or Windows as the computing platform and require parallel access to data from any server in the cluster and high-speed file I/O to parallel jobs running across multiple nodes.

Value proposition

GPFS delivers fast, reliable data access from all nodes in a homogeneous or heterogeneous cluster of servers running the AIX , Linux , or Windows operating systems. GPFS enables applications simultaneous access to a set of files, even a single file, from any node that has the GPFS file system mounted while offering a high level of control over all file system operations. Additionally, GPFS provides extreme scaling across numerous metrics, including I/O performance, file or file system size, numbers of files, numbers of nodes, and execution of complex ILM policies. All of these features together offer different value to different classes of client needs, such as:

  • Scale-out data access. A high-performance scale-out file system for business applications that benefit from active/active data access from multiple nodes.
  • A multicluster file system, providing a global namespace across clusters for parallel processing on compute clusters, featuring extreme scalability and throughput optimized for streaming workloads such as those common in Web 2.0, digital media, scientific, and engineering applications. Users entitled with a GPFS (Server, Client/FPO as appropriate) license are allowed shared access to files in either the cluster where the file system was created or other GPFS clusters. Each site in the network is managed as a separate cluster, while allowing shared file system access.
  • HSM platform. The built-in policy engine supports multiple tiers of storage, including tape, with powerful policy-driven file placement, migration, deletion, and reporting. This makes GPFS the perfect base for a content library or archival system by mixing cost-effective storage of infrequently accessed data with the global namespace for easy accessibility.

Compatibility

All components of the IBM Intelligent Cluster are compatible when purchased as a supported IBM Intelligent Cluster solution.

Limitations

IBM Intelligent Cluster

  • IBM Intelligent Cluster options are supported only when deployed in an IBM Intelligent Cluster solution. They will not be supported when installed outside a 1410 Rack.
  • Use of the 1410-4RX or 1410-2RX Linux Cluster Rack outside of the IBM Intelligent Cluster offering is prohibited.
  • When the heat exchange door is part of the IBM Intelligent Cluster Solution, IBM will attach the door to the rack. You are responsible for filling the heat exchange door with fluid and hooking up all plumbing connections. You are also responsible for draining the heat exchange door and disconnecting all plumbing connections prior to an IBM servicer's arrival on-site for replacement of the door assembly. After the servicer has replaced the heat exchange door assembly on the rack, it is your responsibility to refill the heat exchange door and reconnect all plumbing connections. All preventative maintenance on the rack is the sole responsibility of the client.
    • Due to the weight of some switch chassis, the client may have to provide lifts for installation and repair if switches are installed in the upper portion of the rack.
    • The LG-Ericsson ES-5048XG Switch (PSE) (4668-020 and -HC9) is only supported in the 1410 enterprise racks because of length of the switch.
  • The IBM 0563-034 HVEC, 0563-HCU XCC FC A308 (Brocade MLXe 8) and IBM 0563-035 HVEC, 0563-HCV XCC FC A309 (Brocade MLXE 16) will not be supported in configurations in conjunction with the IBM Acoustic Door Kit for Enterprise Rack option (part number 40K9627 feature code 4852), the IBM Rear Door Heat eXchanger Option (part number 32R0712 feature code 4392), and the IBM Dynamic Rack and Rear Door Heat eXchanger V2 1756-42X HVEC, 1756-HC1 XCC (feature code A2FP). This is due to air pressurization that occurs in the rack rear as a result of the added impendence of acoustic and cooling doors. This pressurization could result in hot air recirculation though the rack cold aisle opening created by the switch port location on the rack front cold aisle side.

    System x iDataPlex

    • System x iDataPlex options are supported only when ordered and deployed in an iDataPlex solution. They will not be supported when ordered without a corresponding order for an iDataPlex Rack configuration.
    • The 1410 Rack Management Appliance is supported only when deployed in an iDataPlex configuration and with iDataPlex-supported BOM content.
    • Rear Door Heat eXchanger:
      • The Rear Door Heat eXchanger is shipped separately from the iDataPlex rack for delivery and installation to the rack by an IBM authorized supplier.
      • When the Rear Door Heat eXchanger is part of the iDataPlex solution, an IBM authorized supplier will attach the door to the rack. (Refer to the Rear Door Heat eXchanger service pamphlet shipped with Rear Door Heat eXchanger for warranty service information.) The client is responsible for filling the heat exchange door with fluid and hooking up all plumbing connections. The client is also responsible for draining the heat exchange door and disconnecting all plumbing connections prior to an IBM authorized supplier's arrival on site for replacement of the door assembly. After the servicer has replaced the heat exchange door assembly on the rack, it is the client's responsibility to refill the heat exchange door and reconnect all plumbing connections. All preventative maintenance on the rack is the sole responsibility of the client.
      • Use of the iDataPlex Rack outside of the iDataPlex offering is not supported.
    • The Cisco 4948E Switch (oPSE) (4670-050 and -HD1) is supported only in iDataPlex due to airflow.
  • Components not specifically released and announced for the Intelligent Cluster may not receive full support.

Note: Regarding the use of SSD drives, solid-state memory cells have an intrinsic, finite number of write cycles each cell can incur. As a result, each solid-state device has a maximum amount of write cycles to which it can be subjected, documented as total bytes written (TBD). IBM is not responsible for replacement of hardware that has reached the maximum guaranteed number of write cycles. This limit may be revealed as the device failing to respond to system-generated commands or becoming incapable of being written to. Additional information is available at

http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/x/options/storage/solidstate/index.html

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

  • Machine type 0796 - Three years
  • Machine type 0750 - Three years
  • Optional features - One year

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.

The following have been designated as consumables, supply items, or structural parts and therefore not covered by this warranty:

  • Rack Front Door
  • Rack Filler Plate
  • DDN Battery
  • Mellanox Blanks
  • Brocade Blanks

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 designated for your Machine.

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 or features have been designated as Tier 1 CRUs:

  • CMOS batteries
  • Hard disk drives
  • Hot-swap fan
  • Hot-swap AC power supply
  • Memory DIMM
  • Optical drive
  • PCI adapter
  • Power cord
  • Service label
  • System label
  • Hyper visor USB key
  • PCI riser
  • RAID card without battery
  • Tape drive
  • Ethernet daughter card
On-site Service

At IBM's discretion you will receive CRU service or IBM or your reseller will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. If required, On-site Repair is provided, 9 hours per day, Monday through Friday excluding holidays, NBD response. 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.

To determine the eligibility of your machine and to view a list of countries where service is available, visit:
