IBM PureFlex System will enable enterprises to realize these benefits while minimizing the complexity inherent in a highly virtualized environment.

IBM Flex System p460 Compute Node

The IBM Flex System p460 Compute Node is the latest high-density Information Technology Element (ITE) server with POWER7 and EnergyScale technology.

The IBM Flex System p460 Compute Node is a full-wide ITE server with four 4-core 64-bit 3.3 GHz processor modules, or four 8-core 64-bit 3.2 or 3.5 GHz processor modules and 32 DIMM slots which can contain up to a maximum of 512 GB of memory. Two optional SAS Small Form Factor (SFF) 2.5-inch hard disk drives (HDDs) or 1.8-inch SATA solid-state drives (SSDs) can be installed in the p460 Compute Node.

Integrated features on the p460 Compute Node include:

  • USB 2.0 controller with front panel port
  • SAS controller
  • Service processor
  • One USB port
  • Four PCIe expansion card slots

The IBM Flex System p460 Compute Node can be installed in the IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis, 7893-92X and 8721-xxx. When installing the p460 Compute Node in the 8721-xxx chassis, only field support is available. The chassis has 14 ITE bays for ITE servers and supports up to 14 half-wide ITEs or 7 full-wide ITEs.

In short-term extended thermal conditions, the p460 Compute Node automatically reduces the frequency of the processor to maintain acceptable thermal or power levels. The processor frequency will automatically cycle back up as thermal or power conditions improve.

Clients should be aware that there may be applications that are sensitive to processor frequency changes. For instance, frequency reductions could potentially impact benchmarking or applications and tools that depend on execution times for accounting, CPU utilization, or profiling. It is recommended that clients check with their individual application vendors to see if there are possible impacts.

  • Highly efficient and flexible design of the IBM ITE

    • Densely pack more servers into a smaller space

    • Tailor the system to meet varied business requirements

    • Integrate networking switch infrastructure for improved cabling and data center maintenance

    • Deploy in virtually any office environment for quieter, highly secure, and contaminant-protected operation

  • Pioneering IBM EnergyScale technology and software (an optional feature available for an additional charge)
    • Generate less heat by managing application utilization and server energy consumption
    • Use less energy to cool the system

  • Industry-leading PowerVM virtualization technology

    • Potentially reduce infrastructure costs by doing more with fewer servers

IBM PureFlex System for the Flex System p460 Compute Node:

The IBM PureFlex System consists of predefined, preconfigured Flex System components to simplify purchasing and provide the total Flex System integrated value proposition.

The IBM Flex System p460 Compute Node can be ordered as part of a PureFlex System. There are three IBM PureFlex System offerings available:

  • IBM Flex System Express for smaller installations (#EFD1)
  • IBM Flex System Standard for application systems (#EFD2)
  • IBM Flex System Enterprise scalable cloud deployments; includes redundancy for resilient operation (#EFD3)

A PureFlex System consists of:

  • A Flex System Compute Node, chosen from:

    • Flex System p260 (7895-22X)

    • Flex System p460 (7895-42X)

    • Flex System x240 (7863-10X)

      Note: The Flex System p260 does not offer an IBM PureFlex System Enterprise. The Flex System p460 does not offer an IBM PureFlex System Express. The IBM PureFlex System Enterprise requires two Compute Nodes.

  • A Flex System Enterprise Chassis (7893-92X)

  • A Flex System Manager (7955-01M)

  • A Storwize V7000 Disk System (2076-124)

  • Two IBM 1455 BNT Rack Switch G8264R Model 64C (with IBM Flex Enterprise only, with the Flex System p460)

  • Two IBM 1455 BNT Rack Switches G8052 Model 48E (With IBM PureFlex Enterprise only, with the Flex System p460)

  • Two IBM 2498 SAN24B-4 Express Model B24 (with IBM PureFlex Enterprise only, with the Flex System p460)

  • An IBM PureFlex System 42U Rack (7953-94X)

Additional Flex System Compute Nodes, Flex System Chassis, IBM PureFlex System 42U Rack, and Flex System Managers can be ordered once the basic requirements for the IBM PureFlex System are met. These additional orders will be indicated by feature number E FD4 (Expansion Option) or EFD5 (Custom Expansion). The Flex System Manager is not available with EFD4. Storwize V7000 Disk Systems can be ordered separately without meeting the requirements for the IBM PureFlex System.

In a typical Flex System configuration with Flex System Power compute nodes (p260, p24L, p460), the Flex System Manager is required to fully exploit all of the management and virtualization capabilities of a Power compute node in a Flex System chassis. However, in basic Flex System configurations that do not require Power compute nodes to support virtualization or other advanced functions provided by the Flex System Manager, the Flex chassis and the Power compute nodes may be managed by the local CMM. In this case the Flex System Manager is not required to manage this limited configuration of Power compute nodes in a Flex System chassis with no virtualization. Flex System Power compute nodes do not support IVM therefore, the individual Flex System Power compute nodes may only run single partitions and must be configured through the CMM web interface and/or the CMM command line interface using SOL.

The following IBM PureFlex System configurations will not be supported until April 24, 2012:

  • Expansion Option (#EFD4) on the Flex System Enterprise Chassis (7893-92X)

  • Expansion Option (#EFD4) on the Storwize V7000 Disk System (2076-124)

  • IBM PureFlex Enterprise (#EFD3) on the Flex System p460 Compute Node (7895-42X)

  • IBM PureFlex Enterprise (#EFD3) and Expansion Option (#EFD4) on the IBM 1455 BNT Rack Switches (1455-64C/48E) and the IBM 2498 SASN24B-4 Express Model B24 (2498-B24)

PowerVM Editions (Advanced Power Virtualization) (Optional)

The IBM Flex System p460 Compute Node supports PowerVM technology. The p460 is designed to make it more affordable to consolidate multiple independent applications on a single ITE using the same proven virtualization technologies offered on IBM Power servers.

The p460 supports three leading-edge virtualization technologies: PowerVM Express Edition (#5225), PowerVM Standard Edition (#5227), and PowerVM Enterprise Edition (#5228).

  • PowerVM Express Edition supports up to three partitions per system (VIOS, AIX, Linux, and/or IBM i) which share processors and I/O. No hardware management console (HMC) is required or supported. It allows users to try out the Integrated Virtualization Manager (IVM) and the Virtual I/O Server (VIOS), which they would not get with an HMC.

  • PowerVM Standard Edition makes the p460 an ideal platform for consolidation of AIX, Linux, and IBM i operating system applications, helping clients reduce infrastructure complexity and cost. Offering an intuitive, web-based interface for managing virtualization within a single compute node, the IVM component of VIOS allows the small business IT manager to quickly and easily set up and manage logical partitions (LPARs). It also enables Virtual I/O and Virtual Ethernet so that storage and communications adapters can be shared among all the LPARs running on the p460. Ultimately, IBM Micro-Partitioning technology allows each processor core to be subdivided into as many as 10 virtual servers. And since the p460 is built with POWER7 technology, other advanced virtualization functions such as Shared Dedicated Capacity may be exploited.

  • PowerVM Enterprise Edition includes all the features of PowerVM Standard Edition plus a new capability called Live Partition Mobility. Live Partition Mobility allows for the movement of a running AIX or Linux partition from one POWER7 processor-based server to another. Designed to have no application downtime, Live Partition Mobility could result in better system utilization, improved application availability, and potential energy savings. With Live Partition Mobility, planned application downtime due to regular server maintenance can be a thing of the past. Software Maintenance for Virtual I/O Server (577x-PVE) must be purchased with VIOS (5765-PVE). PowerVM Enterprise Edition must be purchased separately.

Note: PowerVM Express Edition, PowerVM Standard Edition, and PowerVM Enterprise Edition are optional when running AIX or Linux. PowerVM Express Edition, PowerVM Standard Edition, or PowerVM Enterprise Edition is required when running the IBM i operating system on the p460.

Capacity Backup (CBU) Support for IBM i on the IBM Flex System p460 Compute Node

The CBU designation can help meet your requirements for use of a second system as backup, high availability, and disaster recovery. It enables you to temporarily transfer IBM i processor entitlements and IBM i user entitlements purchased for a primary machine to a secondary CBU system. Temporarily transferring these resources, instead of purchasing them for a secondary system, may result in significant savings.

The CBU specify feature number 4898 for the IBM Flex System p460 Compute Node (7895-42X) is available as part of a new compute node purchase. This CBU feature cannot be added to an existing compute node.

Certain system prerequisites must be met, and system registration and approval is required before the CBU specify feature can be applied on a new server.

Standard IBM i terms and conditions do not allow either IBM i processor entitlements or IBM i user entitlements to be transferred permanently or temporarily. These entitlements remain with the machine for which they were ordered. When you register the association between a 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 entitlement and user entitlements from the primary system to the CBU system for any purpose, provided the corresponding primary system processors are not being used concurrently for production purposes. The CBU system can therefore better support failover 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 as long as the registered primary and CBU systems are in deployment for the high availability or disaster recovery operation.

P460 (P10)          P703 (P10), P704(P10), P260(P10), P460 (P10)
 

These systems have IBM i software licenses with an IBM i P05 or P10 processor group. The primary machine must be in the same enterprise and country as the CBU system.

Before you can temporarily transfer IBM i processor entitlements from the registered primary system, you must have more than one IBM i processor entitlement on the primary machine and at least one IBM i processor entitlement on the CBU server. You can 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 that you want 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 entitlements are not updated, and you may see IBM i license noncompliance warning messages from the CBU system. These warning messages in this situation do not mean you are not in compliance.

The p460 high availability options include PowerHA with Geographic Mirroring. You may also use Metro Mirror or Global Mirror replication solutions provided by the storage subsystem, and other third-party software replication packages.

Before you can temporarily transfer IBM i user entitlements you must have more than five IBM i user entitlements on the p460 primary server and at least five IBM user entitlements on the CBU server. You can transfer optional entitlements (any IBM i user entitlements above the minimum five) from the primary to the CBU. The user entitlements transferred to the CBU may not be used concurrently on the primary server from which they were transferred. If the primary server is of a P10 processor group, then the primary server must have a minimum of 10 user entitlements and the optional user entitlements (those over the 10 required) may be transferred temporarily to the CBU. As a general principle of the CBU on i offering, temporary entitlement transfer cannot originate on the CBU.

For example, if you have a p460 as your primary system with two IBM i processor entitlements (one above the minimum) and 50 IBM i user entitlements (40 above the minimum), you can temporarily transfer up to one IBM i processor entitlement and up to 40 user entitlements. During this temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal records of its total number of IBM i processor and user entitlements are 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.

Support for IBM i 6.1 and IBM i 7.1

Support for IBM Flex System p460 Compute Node:

IBM i 6.1 and IBM i 7.1 support the IBM Flex System p460 Compute Node. For IBM i, the p460 ITE server is supported in the IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis. The p460 also supports AIX and Linux operating systems.

IBM i uses the PowerVM VIOS partition for access to Flex System resources and storage devices. The VIOS partition owns adapters on the compute node and virtualizes the resources to the IBM i partition.

IBM i operating system supports the following I/O adapters and storage options on the p460:

  • IBM Flex System EN4054 4-port 10Gb Ethernet Adapter (#1762)
  • IBM Flex System EN2024 4-port 1Gb Ethernet Adapter (#1763)
  • IBM Flex System FC3172 2-port 8Gb Fibre Channel Adapter (#1764)
  • IBM 300 GB SAS 10K SFF HDD (#8274)
  • IBM 600 GB SAS 10K SFF HDD (#8276)
  • IBM 900 GB SAS 10K SFF HDD (#8311)
  • IBM 177 GB SATA SSD (#8207)

For use with IBM i, the compute node can be deployed with one VIOS partition and one IBM i partition, with one VIOS partition and multiple IBM i partitions, or with one VIOS partition and a combination of IBM i, AIX, and Linux partitions.

IBM i 6.1 (5761-SS1) and IBM i 7.1 (5770-SS1) include per processor core and per user entitlements for compute blade.

  • AIX V5.3 with the 5300-12 Technology Level with Service Pack 6, or later (planned availability: June 29, 2012) (Note: AIX 5.3 Service Extension is required)

If installing the IBM i operating system:

  • IBM i 6.1 with i 6.1.1 machine code, or later
    • Not available as part of a IBM PureFlex System order.
    • Feature number 0566 is also not available as part of a IBM PureFlex System order.
    • Build-To-Order configurations (#EFD9) are supported by IBM i 6.1 with i 6.1.1 machine code. #0566 is supported with #EFD9.

If installing VIOS:

  • VIOS 2.2.1.4, or later

If installing the Linux operating system (one of these):

  • Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 2 for POWER, with current maintenance updates available from Novell to enable all planned functionality

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.7, for POWER, or later

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2, for POWER, or later

Users should also update their systems with the latest Linux for POWER service and productivity tools from the IBM website

http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/lopdiags/home.html

Note: For systems ordered with the Linux operating system, IBM ships the most current versions available from the distributor. If your hardware requires a different version of a Linux OS than that shipped by IBM, you must obtain it via download from the Linux distributor's website. Information concerning access to a distributor's website is located on the product registration card delivered to you as part of your Linux OS order.

Processor is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A processor (commonly called a processor core or CPU) is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic units. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor. For programs eligible for sub-capacity licensing, a Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be acquired for all activated processors available for use in each partition (utilizing eligible partitioning technologies) where the program runs. A PoE must be acquired for all activated processor cores available for use on the server.

Limitations: Solid State Memory cells have an intrinsic, finite number of write cycles that each cell can incur. As a result each solid state device has a maximum amount of write cycles it can be subjected to, documented as TBW (Total Bytes Written). 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 communicate to system generated commands or become incapable of being written to.

Feature descriptions

The following is a list of all feature codes in numeric order for the IBM Power Systems 7895 machine type.

Attributes, as defined in the following feature descriptions, state the interaction of requirements among features.

Minimums and maximums are the absolute limits for a single feature without regard to interaction with other features. The maximum valid quantity for MES orders may be different than for initial orders. The maximums listed below refer to the largest quantity of these two possibilities.

The order type defines if a feature is orderable only on initial orders, only on MES orders, on both initial and MES orders, or if a feature is supported on a model due to a model conversion. Supported features cannot be ordered on the converted model, only left on or removed from the converted model.
