Overview
Bottom rule

New models of IBM PureApplication System give greater flexibility to select system compute capacity to fit enterprise application requirements.

Models that extend the compute capacity of the IBM mini 25U rack systems:

Additional, large 42U rack models for a lower entry price and finer grained, compute node upgrade options are available.

PureApplication System product family delivers a new approach for enterprise applications by providing a preintegrated cloud platform for enterprise applications that are shipped ready to run with storage, networking, servers, operating systems, virtualization, application server and database middleware, monitoring and management pre-integrated, and that are tuned, and optimized.

PureApplication Systems offer faster application and system time to value from initial deployment to ongoing maintenance, and are designed to be simple to deploy, customize, safeguard, and manage.

PureApplication Systems is designed to improve business agility across the application lifecycle, by providing dynamic scaling to meet usage spikes and improve performance with auto balancing of application resources.

Description
Bottom rule

PureApplication systems are shipped in a fully assembled, cabled, and integrated rack from IBM .

New W1500 models based on Intel compute nodes are available in these configurations:

New W1700 models are POWER compute nodes are available in these configurations:

You can upgrade from one configuration to the next configuration by buying the appropriate upgrade. Upgrades are designed to be completed without powering down the installed machine.

All models of PureApplication System in the 25U mini rack come with 26.4 TB of storage, divided between hard disks (24 TB) and solid state disks (2.4 TB) and can be powered from single-phase power sources.

All models of PureApplication System in the 42U large rack come with 54.4 TB of storage divided between hard disks (48 TB) and solid state disks (6.4 TB). All PureApplication Systems in the 42U large rack must be powered from a 3-phase power source.

A purchase of PureApplication System includes entitlement to run included products up to the total capacity of that configuration:

Software products included with all W1700 models:

Software Products included with all W1500 models:

Additional patterns and software solutions designed for PureApplication System are available from the PureSystems™ Centre:

http://www.ibm.com/PureSystems/Centre

The Centre allows PureApplication System users to search, browse, and acquire solutions for use with PureApplication System.

Electrical and power requirements

The following data represents the maximum label rated power requirements based on the hardware configuration in the PureApplication System rack. The actual power consumption will vary depending upon the workloads running on the system and the typical power consumption values are expected to be lower than the maximum rated power. When planning the electrical system, it is important to use maximum values to account for internal or environmental conditions that result in power consumption increasing beyond typical values.

Standards compliance

The PureApplication Systems W1500 and W1700 product family supports or complies to the following standards:

Equipment approvals and safety equipment approval and safety

Operating environment

The PureApplication Systems W1500 and W1700 product family is designed to operate in the chassis provided. Nodes are designed to meet ASHRAE Class A2.

Power on1

Allowable operating classification: ASHRAE Class A2

Power off2

Storage (non-operating)

Shipment (non-operating)7

1
Chassis is powered on.
2
Chassis is removed from original shipping container and is installed but not in use, for example, during repair, maintenance, or upgrade.
3
A - Normal maximum operating temperature is 27 C. The system will continue to function up to 35 C, possibly with reduced performance. Derate maximum allowable temperature 1 C/175 m above 950 m.
4
Five degrees C/hr for data centers that employ tape drives and 20 C/hr for data centers employing disk drives.
5
The minimum humidity level for class A3 is the higher (more moisture) of the -12 C dew point and the 8% relative humidity. These intersect at approximately 25 C. Below this intersection (25 C), the dew point (-12 C) represents the minimum moisture level, while above it relative humidity (8%) is the minimum.
6
Moisture levels lower than 0.5 C DP, but not lower than -10 C DP or 8% relative humidity, can be accepted if appropriate control measures are implemented to limit the generation of static electricity on personnel and equipment in the data center. All personnel and mobile furnishings and equipment must be connected to ground via an appropriate static control system. The following items are considered the minimum requirements:
7
The equipment acclimation period is 1 hour per 20 C of temperature change from the shipping environment to the operating environment.
8
Condensation is acceptable, but not rain.

Limitations

Solid state memory cells have an intrinsic, finite number of cell write cycles. The maximum number of write cycles for these devices is defined as total bytes written (TBW).

IBM is not responsible for replacement of hardware that has reached TBW. Device failure indications may include:

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
