System x3650 M4 server

The System x3650 M4 server features Intel Xeon™ multicore processors that support internal processing speeds of up to 3.3 GHz3, and processing operations to memory up to 1600 MHz.

3 GHz and MHz denote the internal and/or external clock speed of the microprocessor only, not application performance. Many factors affect application performance.

High-performance server subsystems

The System x3650 M4 server expands the new server line by adding a higher level of processor power. This high-throughput, two-way multicore network server offers excellent performance and scalability when you add memory and a second processor. Up to 20 MB cache, and up to two 8.0 GT/s QuickPath interconnect (QPI) with new Hyper Threading and Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0. It incorporates powerful Xeon processors with up to 20 MB L3 cache. The advanced transfer L3 cache is integrated onto the processor and runs at the same clock speed. The advanced transfer cache is a result of a 'backside bus' 256 bits wide. It features a quad-wide cache line that can transfer four 64-bit cache line segments at one time to deliver full-speed capability. The cache is eight-way set associative.

Two Intel Xeon processor connectors are standard on the system board to support installation of a second processor. High-speed PC3 DDR3 Advanced Memory Feature DIMMs run at up to 1600 MHz DRAM clock speed and offer maximum 12800 MBps bandwidth, processor-to-memory subsystem performance. The x3650 M4 server uses the Intel E5-2600 processor with Chipkill technology to maximize throughput from processors, to memory, to the 32-bit and 64-bit PCI buses.

Rack installations

System x3650 M4 server 2U rack-drawer models should be installed in a 19-inch rack cabinet designed for 30-inch deep devices, such as the NetBAY42U ER. Installation into some of the older Netfinity® racks (9306900, 9306910, 9306200) requires a rack extension kit.

If a System x3650 M4 is mounted in a non-IBM rack, the rack must satisfy the following specifications:

Supported memory options

The following memory options are supported:

Power considerations

The System x3650 M4 server includes a standard 550-watt, 750-watt, or 900-watt hot-swap power supply. A System x3650 M4 hot-swap power supply upgrade is optionally available to support redundancy.

Cable orders

Four 10/100/1000 Mbps, full-duplex Ethernet PCI controllers, standard with the System x3650 M4 server, are connected directly to an independent RJ-45 connector. The RJ-45 connector provides a 10BASET, 100BASE-TX, and 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 an unshielded twisted pair (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 x3650 M4 server requires about 20 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.

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.

Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

To obtain copies of the IBM Statement of Limited Warranty, contact your reseller or IBM.

Warranty period

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:

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:

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.

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:

If the machine does not function as warranted and your problem can be resolved through your application of downloadable Machine Code, you are responsible for downloading and installing these designated Machine Code changes as IBM specifies. If you would prefer, you may request IBM to install downloadable Machine Code changes; however, you may be charged for that service.
