Description:

The IBM 8246 is a PowerLinux 7R1 server that delivers the outstanding performance of the IBM POWER7+ processor in a dense, highly efficient 2U rack-optimized form factor for Linux clients. It is ideal for running multiple Linux infrastructure and application workloads, and with PowerVM virtualization, can be more economical than traditional Linux servers. Take advantage of the IBM PowerLinux 7R1 scalability and capacity by leveraging the feature-rich PowerVM virtualization technology to fully utilize the server's capacity and deploy virtual partitions faster. You can move workloads as needed across PowerLinux and Power Systems servers with Live Partition Mobility.

Model abstract 8246-L1T

The IBM 8246 PowerLinux 7R1 server Model L1T is a Linux only 2U rack-mount server with one processor socket offering a 4-core 3.6 GHz POWER7+ configuration, and 6-core and 8-core 4.2 GHz POWER7+ configurations. The PowerLinux 7R1 (8246-L1T) server also delivers expanded storage capabilities using high-performance Gen2 PCIe interfaces and additional disk drives via the EXP24S small form factor (SFF) Gen2-bay drawer. The PowerLinux 7R1 server supports a maximum of eight DDR3 DIMM slots, with four DIMM slots included in the base configuration. Four DIMM slots are available with one optional memory riser card, allowing for a maximum system memory of 256 GB. Memory features (two memory DIMMs per feature) supported are 8 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB, which run at speeds of 1066 MHz. Also, PowerVM now features Active Memory Sharing, the technology that allows you to intelligently exchange memory between running partitions for increased optimization of physical memory resources. Active Memory Sharing enables the sharing of a pool of physical memory among logical partitions (LPARs) on a single server, helping to increase memory utilization and drive down system costs.
