Overview
Bottom rule

Numerous enhancements for POWER6 processor-based servers expand configuration options and offer I/O performance enhancements. Key enhancements include new 12X I/O drawers, new PCIe adapters, a new large cache disk adapter, and high-speed solid state drives (SSD). Additionally, the Power 520 can now support SFF disk bays in the system unit. SFF disk drives are offered for the Power 520, 550, and new 12X I/O drawers. The Power 5201, 5501, 560 and 570 have refreshed DVD options. The Power 570 has enhanced split backplane capabilities and a new monitor is being announced.

New 12X I/O drawers expand server I/O performance and capability in both 19-inch (#5802) and 24-inch (#5803 and #5873) environments by supporting higher-speed connections to the server and by supporting PCIe 8x adapters and SFF disks. The 24-inch I/O drawer is available with (#5803) or without SFF disk bays (#5873). New 12X DDR (Double Data Rate) cables supporting the higher-speed connection are required for the new 12X I/O drawers and are available in four lengths.

With the new 24-inch 12X I/O drawers, the Power 595 supports PCIe adapters previously available on other POWER6 servers as well as new PCIe adapters. This includes support for the 8 Gb Fibre Channel adapter (#5735) that supports NPIV, with proper OS levels.

New PCIe I/O adapters are announced for the Power 520, 550, 560, 570, 575, and 595, including:

  • The PCIe Dual - x4 SAS Adapter (#5901) controls SAS disk (SFF or 3.5-inch), tape, or removable media. The PCIe adapter feature 5901 is functionally similar to the PCI-X DDR Dual - x4 SAS Adapter (#5912 and #5900).
  • The PCIe 380 MB Cache Dual-4X SAS RAID Adapter (#5903) is an excellent solution for higher-performance applications controlling SAS disk (SFF or 3.5-inch) drives. It also supports SSDs. Pairs of these adapters are required when used to provide mirrored write cache data and mirrored RAID parity footprints between the adapters for superior availability. The PCIe adapter feature 5903 is functionally similar to the PCI-X DDR Dual - x4 3 Gb SAS RAID Adapter (#5902).
  • Two additional PCIe 10 Gb Ethernet adapters provide either SR optic (#5769) or a CX4 twinax copper (#5732) cabling.
  • The PCIe 4-Port Async EIA-232 Adapter (#5785) connects asynchronous data terminal equipment and data circuit terminating equipment.

The PCI-X DDR 1.5 GB cache SAS RAID Adapters (#5904, #5906, and #5908) have extremely large write and read caches to help SAS disk drives and SSDs provide a higher level of I/O performance to the server. This is a double-slot adapter, which includes auxiliary write cache protection. Three features are available, two for the different blind swap cassette and one without cassette. The PCI-X features 5904, 5906, and 5908 are functionally similar to the PCI-X Disk Controller 1.5 GB features 5778, 5780, and 5782, which control SCSI disk drives.

New solid state drives provide for storage and retrieval of data that is much faster than spinning disk drives. These 69 GB drives leap over bottlenecks in disk drive technology. The root cause for disk's slower performance is waiting for the movement of the disk platter and the disk arm. SSD random reads/writes can occur in microseconds, not the milliseconds that it takes for spinning drives (also called hard disk drives or HDD). I/O performance increases, resulting in overall system performance (depending upon configuration and applications).

SSD has more than just performance advantages. SSD has no moving parts, increasing its reliability. SSD has no motor and needs far less electrical power or cooling than disk drives. Moreover, unlike HDDs that are often run at 50% or less of their storage capacity to help maintain consistent performance, SSD can be run much closer to 100% storage capacity and still provide excellent performance.

The 69 GB SSD plugs into a standard SAS drive bay slot and is controlled by a SAS controller. SSD is available in two form factors, a 3.5-inch (#3586, #3587) and in SFF (#1890, #1909). The 3.5-inch SSD is used in the EXP 12S Enclosure Drawer (#5886) and is controlled by the PCI-X 1.5 GB Cache RAID adapter or a pair of PCIe 380 MB Cache RAID adapters. The 3.5-inch SSD is also used in the Power 560/570 CEC and is controlled by either the imbedded controller or the PCI-X 1.5 GB Cache controller. The SFF SSD is used in Power 520/550 CEC SFF slots and is controlled by the imbedded controller or the PCI-X 1.5 GB Cache controller.

Power 520 can be ordered with either the new eight 2.5-inch SFF SAS drive slots or the previously announced six 3.5-inch SAS drive slots. Split backplane options are supported with either SFF or 3.5-inch slots. The SFF slots can support either SFF disk drives or SSDs. System unit SFF capability is now consistent between both the Power 5201and 5501. Three SFF disks are available for the Power 520 and 550 and for the new 12X I/O drawers with SFF disk bays: 10K RPM 146 GB (#1882) and 15K RPM 73.4 GB (#1883) with AIX/Linux, and 15K RPM 69.7 GB (#1884) with IBM i. All of these features are available on Power 575 except for feature 1884.

The Power 520, 550, 560, and 570 system units have refreshed DVD options using a SATA interface. Select from two DVDs: the SATA Slimline DVD-ROM Drive (#5743) and the SATA Slimline DVD-RAM Drive (#5762). The Power 560 and 570 use a new media backplane (#5674) for support of one SATA media device in a single CEC enclosure.

The Power 560 and 570 CEC enclosures have an enhanced SAS adapter for internal Split DASD option (#5911) that supports attachment of a removable media device external to the CEC enclosure. This is in addition to providing a connection for three SAS disk drives in the system unit such as the feature 5909 provides.

A new wide-screen, flat-panel LCD monitor (#3632) replaces previously offered monitors for the Power 520, 550, 560, 570, and 595.

PCIe 12X I/O Drawer (#5802)

The PCIe 12X I/O drawer is a 19-inch I/O and storage drawer containing 10 PCIe 8x I/O adapter slots and 18 SAS hot-swap small form factor (SFF) drive bays. Using 146 GB drives, the PCIe 12X I/O Drawer provides up to 2.6 TB of storage. The 18 disk bays can be organized either into one group of 18 bays (AIX/Linux), two groups of nine bays (AIX/IBM i/Linux), or four groups of four or five bays (AIX/Linux). Selecting either one or two or four groups of bays is done with a mode switch on the drawer.

These groups of SFF bays are controlled by a SAS storage adapter located in a PCIe slot in the same feature 5802. If either the one-group or two-group setting is used, each group of disk bays is controlled by one feature 5901 or one pair of feature 5903 of PCIe SAS storage adapters. If the four-group setting is used, each group of disk slots is controlled by one feature 5901 PCIe SAS storage adapter. Note each feature 5901 or each pair of feature 5903's can control up to two groups. Additional feature 5901 adapters can be added for redundancy in high availability applications where one-group and two-group configurations are installed.

The PCIe 12X I/O Drawer (#5802) is a 4 EIA unit tall, full-width drawer with physical dimensions of 444.5 mm (17.5 in) wide by 177.8 mm (7.0 in) high by 711.2 mm (28.0 in) deep for use in a 482.6 mm (19 in) rack. The PCIe adapter slots use Gen 3 blind swap cassettes and support hot plugging of adapter cards. A minimum configuration of two 12X DDR cables and two dc power cables and two SPCN cables is required to ensure proper redundancy. 12X SDR cables are not supported. The drawer attaches to the host CEC enclosure with a 12X adapter in a GX slot via 12X DDR cables available in three different cable lengths: 1.5 (#1862), 3.0 (#1865), or 8.0 meters (#1864).

POWER6 520 and POWER6 550 use GX Dual-port 12X-DDR Channel Attach (#5609) or GX Dual-port 12X-SDR Channel Attach (#5616) to attach a feature 5802 12X I/O Drawer. The feature 5608 GX adapter is not supported with the feature 5802 drawer. The feature 5609 channel provides higher bandwidth (DDR), but is available only with 4-core or larger servers. POWER6 560 and POWER6 570 use GX Dual-Port 12X-SDR Channel Attach (#1802).

There are two 24-inch PCIe 12X I/O drawers:

  • PCIe 12X I/O Drawer with SFF disk storage capacity (#5803)
  • PCIe 12X I/O Drawer with no SFF disk storage capacity (#5873)

The PCIe 12X I/O drawer (#5803) is a 609.6 mm (24 inches) I/O and storage drawer containing 20 PCIe 8x I/O adapter slots and 26 SAS hot-swap SFF drive bays. Using 146 GB drives, the feature 5803 provides up to 3.8 TB storage. The 26 drive bays can be organized either into one group of 26 bays (AIX/Linux), two groups of 13 bays (AIX/IBM i/Linux), or four groups of six or seven bays (AIX/Linux). Selecting either one or two or four groups of bays is done with a mode switch on the drawer.

These groups of SFF bays are controlled by a SAS storage adapter located in a PCIe slot in the same feature 5803. If either the one-group or two-group setting is used, each group of disk bays is controlled by one feature 5901 or one pair of feature 5903 of PCIe SAS storage adapters. If the four-group setting is used, each group of disk bays is controlled by one feature 5901 PCIe SAS storage adapter. Note each feature 5901 or each pair of feature 5903 can control up to two groups.

Features 5803 and 5873 can logically be considered two I/O drawers, each with 10 PCIe slots. Each logical drawer has its own 12X connections. For highest performance/bandwidth, each half of the feature 5803 or 5873 is connected to a separate GX adapter. To increase the maximum number of PCIe slots per 12X loop, the two sides of the feature 5803 or 5873 are connected using a 0.6 M DDR 12X cable. A maximum of one feature 5803 or 5873 can be placed on the same 12X loop.

Feature 5803 or 5873 provides a 4 EIA unit tall, full-width drawer with physical dimensions of the drawer measuring 571.5 mm (22.5 in) wide by 177.8 mm (7.0 in) high by 177.2 mm (28.0 in) deep for use in a 609.6 mm (24 in) frame/rack. The adapter slots use blind swap cassettes Gen 3.0 and support hot plugging of adapter cards. A minimum configuration of three 12X DDR cables and four internal rack dc power/control cables is required to ensure proper redundancy. 12X SDR cables are not supported. The POWER6 595 server uses one or more of the GX Dual-port 12X HCA (#1816) adapters to attach to features 5803 or 5873. The drawer attaches to the host CEC enclosure with one or two 12X adapters in GX slots via 12X DDR cables available in three different cable lengths: 0.6 (#1861), 2.5 (#1863), or 8.0 meters (#1864).

12X DDR cables are required for the PCIe 12X I/O drawers.

Clients requiring exact component placement for their 4-group mode PCIe 12X PCIe I/O drawer (#5803) can use System Planning Tool (SPT), which is particularly useful for designing logical disk group partitions available April 28, 2009, and supported by Customer Specified Placement (CSP), eConfig, and IBM Manufacturing on July 14, 2009. To prevent reconfiguration in the field, we recommend that CSP be utilized when ordering feature 5802 or 5803 because of the numerous possible configurations.

Three 10 Gb PCIe Ethernet adapters provide a range of options to fit different client needs. All three options provide improved LAN, SAN, backbone, or clustering performance capability compared to 1 Gb Ethernet adapters. Three options also provide additional flexibility to leverage existing cabling that may already be installed, lowering site installation costs. The existing feature 5772 Long Range (LR) adapter uses single-mode (1310 nm) optical fiber for up to 10 km. The new feature 5769 Short Range (SR) adapter uses multi-mode (850 nm) optical fiber for up to 300 meters. The new feature 5732 CX4 uses twinax copper (different from the AS/400® heritage twinax cabling) for up to 15 meters. Both the feature 5769 SR and feature 5732 CX4 adapters provide Linux® with additional function compared to the feature 5772 LR adapter, including iSCSI hardware initiator support and RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access).

PCIe 380 MB Cache RAID Adapter (#5903) details

The PCIe 380 MB Cache RAID Adapter (#5903) is a high-performance SAS controller for attaching SAS hard disk drives or solid state drives to Power servers. Its performance is due to a powerful processor in the adapter, and it is augmented by 380 MB of write cache. A pair of feature 5903's must be configured together. See the feature descriptions for more detail. The adapter has two SAS ports, which are used to attach SAS drives located in the feature 5802 or 5803 12X I/O Drawer, feature 5886 EXP 12S Disk Drawer, or Power 560/570 CEC (8234-EMA/9117-MMA). A SAS AE cable attaches the adapter port to the drive enclosure.

  • A feature 3688 SAS cable provides connection into the feature 5802 or 5803 12X I/O drawer drive slots when the I/O drawer's mode switch is set for one or two groups of disk bays (not four groups)
  • A SAS X cable is used to attach to a feature 5886 EXP 12S Disk Drawer.
  • A SAS YR feature 3667 connects to a feature 3650 or 3651, giving access to the 560/570 drive bays.

Assuming disk drives are being controlled, each port of the adapter could be attached to a different set of drives on the same system; for example, up to:

  • Two ports (two groups) of the feature 5802 or 5803
  • One port of the feature 5802 or 5803 and one2 EXP 12S
  • Two2 EXP 12S
  • Two sets of 570 CEC disk drives
  • One set of 570 CEC drives one2 EXP 12S

    Note that the paired set of feature 5903 adapters physically has four ports, but logically are thought of as just two ports.

2
Additional EXP 12S can be attached by attaching two EXP 12S drawers together using SAS EE cables. A maximum of two EXP 12S drawers (up to 24 disk drives) can be attached to a port of the feature 5903 (or to a pair of ports on a pair of feature 5903's). There is a maximum of four EXP 12S drawers per adapter (or per pair of adapters).

If SSDs are attached to the feature 5903, the rules are different.

  • A maximum of one EXP 12S drawer containing SSDs can be attached per pair of adapters (with a maximum of eight SSD in the feature 5886 EXP 12S). No HDDs can be located in the EXP 12S. No HDDs or SSD can be attached to the other adapter ports.
  • The feature 5903 adapter can control up to three (via feature 3651 or up to six (via feature 3650 3.5-inch SSDs located in the Power 560/570 CEC)). The adapters for these drives must be located in the 560/570 CEC. No HDDs or SSDs can be attached to the other two adapter ports. No HDD can be mixed with the SSDs.

PCI-X Large Cache SAS Adapter

The PCI-X 1.5 GB Cache RAID Adapter is the most powerful SAS controller available as of 2009 for attaching SAS HDDs or SSDs to Power servers. A powerful processor augmented by 1.5 GB of write cache and 1.6 GB of read cache provides the power for the controller. See the feature descriptions for more detail.

The adapter has three SAS ports, which are used to attach SAS drives located in the feature 5886 EXP 12S Disk Drawer or Power 560/570 CEC (8234-EMA/9117-MMA) or Power 520/550 CEC (8203-E4A/8204-E8A). A SAS cable attaches the adapter port to the drive enclosure. A SAS YO cable is used to attach to a feature 5886 EXP 12S Disk Drawer. A SAS AI cable (#3679) connects to Power 520/550 or Power 560/570 drive slots. Assuming disk drives are being controlled, each port of the adapter could be attached to a different set of drives on the same system; for example, up to one of the following:

  • Three3 EXP 12S,
  • Two3 EXP 12S and 520/550 internal drives
  • Three sets of 570 CEC disk drives
  • Two sets of 570 CEC drives and one3 EXP 12S
3
Additional two EXP 12S drawers can be connected together using SAS EE cables. A maximum of two EXP 12S drawers (up to 24 disk drives) can be attached to a port of the PCI-X 1.5 GB Cache RAID adapter. (Maximum of five EXP 12S drawers per adapter.)

If SSDs are attached to the feature 5904, 5906, or 5908, the rules are different.

  • A maximum of one EXP 12S drawer containing SSDs can be attached per adapter (with a maximum of eight SSDs in the feature 5886 EXP 12S). No HDD can be located in the EXP 12S. No HDD or SSD can be attached to the other two adapter ports.
  • Using the Power 520/550 split backplane capability, the feature 5904 adapter can control up to four SFF SSDs located in the second set of CEC disk bays, which are not controlled by the Power 520/550 embedded controller. This is an AIX/Linux option. The adapter for these drives must be located in the 520/550 CEC. No HDDs or SSDs can be attached to the other two adapter ports. No HDDs can be mixed with the SSD.
  • The feature 5908 adapter can control up to three (via feature 3650) or up to six (via feature 3651) 3.5-inch SSDs located in the Power 560/570 CEC. Feature 3651 is an AIX/IBM i/Linux option and feature 3650 is an AIX/Linux option. The adapter for these drives must be located in the 560/570 CEC. No HDD or SSD can be attached to the other two adapter ports. No HDD can be mixed with the SSD.)

The 1.5 GB Cache RAID adapter can be placed in PCI-X slots on the Power 520, 550, 560, or 570. It can also be placed in the following I/O drawers/towers with the following maximum adapters per I/O drawer/tower:

  • 12X I/O drawers
    • #5796 Max 2 (#5908)
    • 7314-G30 Max 2 (#5908)
    • #5797/5798 Max 8 (#5906)
  • RIO/HSL I/O drawers
    • #0595/5095 Max 2 (#5904)
    • #5094/5096 Max 1 (#5904)
    • #5294/5296 Max 2 (#5904)
    • #5790 Max 2 (#5908)

The PCI-X 1.5 GB Cache RAID Adapter (#5904/5906/5908) contains a battery that protects write cache contents in case of short power outages. The battery can be replaced while the system is running. To further protect the write cache contents, there is another 1.5 GB of cache called auxiliary write cache that is included in the adapter. If the write cache on the adapter fails, the auxiliary write cache has a copy of the data that can be retrieved and loaded onto a replacement adapter. Although the drives controlled by the adapter would not be available until the adapter is replaced, restoring the write cache can avoid the need for recovery/reload, minimizing the duration of the outage. Mirrored pairs of the PCI-X 1.5 GB Cache RAID Adapter (#5904/5906/5908) along with mirrored drives provide additional redundancy.

69 GB Solid State Drive

A 69 GB SSD is located in the same 3.5-inch or SFF SAS drive bay in which a HDD might be located in and is controlled by a SAS controller. Normal protection considerations/rules are the same for SSDs as HDDs. With AIX/Linux, mirroring or RAID 5 or RAID 6 is highly recommended. RAID 5, RAID 6, and mirroring under IBM i is required.

Use of SSD as a boot drive or load source is supported. To indicate this usage under IBM i for IBM configuration tools, use one of the load source specify features, feature 0844 or 0855.

SAS controllers that support SSD are the:

PCI-X 1.5 GB Cache RAID Adapter (#5904, #5906, or #5908)
PCIe 380 MB Cache RAID adapter (#5903)
Embedded controller of Power 520/550/560/570 CEC

SSDs mounted on a 3.5-inch carrier (#3586 or #3587) can be located in the feature 5886 EXP 12S Disk Drawer or in the Power 560/570 CEC. A maximum of eight SSDs can be located in an EXP 12S Drawer and will be controlled by one PCI-X 1.5 GB Cache RAID Adapter (#5904, #5906, or #5908). Up to six SSDs can be located in the Power 560/570 CEC. When using the split backplane, three slots will be controlled by the embedded 560/570 controller and the other three slots by a feature 5908 or pair of feature 5903's with a feature 3650. If not split, the 560/570 SSD slots will be driven by either the embedded controller or the feature 5908 or a pair of feature 5903's with a feature 3651. SSDs mounted in a 2.5-inch (SFF) carrier (#1890 or #1909) can be located in the Power 520/550 SFF bays. It is almost always recommended for SSD performance that the 175 MB write cache and RAID 5/6 enabling feature 5679 be used. If the 520/550 split backplane capability is used, the second set of four SFF bays is controlled by a feature 5904.

Mixing HDDs and SDDs in the same feature 5886 EXP 12S or the same SAS controller is not supported. Mixing HDDs and SDDs in the same Power 520/550/560/570 CEC without using split backplane is supported. With split backplane, mixing HDDs and SSDs within a half of the split back plane is not supported, and using SSDs on one half and HDDs on the other half is supported.

SFF Disk Drives

Pack more HDDs in a smaller footprint using the following SAS disks.

  • 146.8 GB 10K RPM SAS SFF Disk Drive (#1882, AIX/Linux)
  • 73.4 GB 15K RPM SAS SFF Disk Drive (#1883, AIX/Linux)
  • 69.7 GB 15K RPM SAS SFF Disk Drive (#1884, IBM i)

These SFF drives are used in the Power 520/550 CEC or feature 5802 or 5803 12X I/O Drawers.

Power 520 can be ordered with either the new eight 2.5-inch SFF SAS bays or the previously announced six 3.5-inch SAS disk bays. Split backplane options are supported with either SFF or 3.5-inch slots. The SFF bays can support either SFF disk drives or SSDs. System unit SFF capability is now consistent between both the Power 520 and 550.

Three SFF disks are available for the Power 520 or 550 and for the new 12X I/O drawers with SFF disk bays: 10K RPM 146 GB (#1882) and 15K RPM 73.4 GB (#1883) with AIX/Linux, and 15K RPM 69.7 GB (#1884) with IBM i. All of these features are available on Power 575 except for feature 1884.

The Power 520, 550, 560, and 570 system units have refreshed DVD options using a SATA interface. You can select from two DVDs: the SATA Slimline DVD-ROM Drive (#5743) and the SATA Slimline DVD-RAM Drive (#5762). The Power 560 and 570 use a new media backplane (#5674) for supporting one SATA media device in a single CEC enclosure.

The Power 570 CEC enclosure has an enhanced SAS adapter for internal Split DASD option (#5911) that supports attachment of a removable media device external to the CEC enclosure. This is in addition to providing a connection for three SAS disk drives in the system unit such as the feature 5909 provides.

A new widescreen, flat-panel LCD monitor (#3632) replaces previously offered monitors for the Power 520, 550, 560, 570, and 595.

PCIe 12X I/O Drawers:

The new 12X I/O drawers provide potential performance advantages and are recommended for most client configurations. Especially when attached to DDR (double data rate) GX adapters in the server, the maximum bandwidth to the drawer is significantly increased compared to the SDR (single data rate) 12X adapter. The Power 595 12X GX adapters are all DDR. The Power 575, 570, and 560 12X GX adapters are all SDR. The Power 550 and 520 (4-core and larger) can support one feature 5609 DDR 12X GX adapter.

The 24-inch PCIe 12X I/O Drawer is available either with disk bays (#5803) or diskless (#5873). If you do not require disk bays due to a SAN storage strategy or a partition mobility strategy, or if you simply need lots of PCIe slots, the diskless drawer offers a lower purchase price and lower maintenance cost compared to the disk-capable drawer.

Compared to the 24-inch PCI-X 12X I/O drawer (#5797 or #5798), the new 12X I/O drawer (#5803 or #5873) has the same number of PCI slots (20), but these are all PCIe 8x slots, which can provide higher data rates than the six PCI-X and 14 PCI-X DDR slots. Both the PCIe and PCI-X 12X I/O drawers have a maximum of one drawer per 12X loop or both can be logically split into two drawers, each half on a 12X loop. The feature 5803 has 26 SFF disk bays compared to the 16 SCSI bays of the feature 5797 or 5798, providing more disk capacity in the I/O drawer, assuming equivalent capacity drives are used in both drawers.

Also note both I/O drawers can drive 19-inch EXP 12S SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) Disk Drawers with their PCIe SAS controllers located in the 12X 24-inch I/O drawers. The feature 5803 SFF bays have more configuration flexibility than the feature 5797 or 5798. The feature 5797 or 5798 provides four imbedded disk controllers with zero write cache, no RAID 5 capability, and no support for IBM i. The feature 5803 has zero imbedded controllers, but by using either feature 5901 or by using pairs of feature 5903 SAS Disk Adapters located in its PCIe slots, you can select different levels of functionality and OS support, including highly resilient RAID 6.

Compared to the 19-inch PCI-X 12X I/O drawer (#5796 or 7314-G30), the 19-inch PCIe 12X I/O Drawer (#5802) has four more PCI slots and all 10 slots are PCIe 8x, which can provide more bandwidth than PCI-X DDR slots. However, the maximum number of PCI-X DDR 12X I/O drawers per 12X loop is four, providing 4 x 6 = 24 PCI-X DDR slots while the maximum PCIe 12X I/O drawers per loop is two, providing 2 x 10 = 20 PCIe slots. However, the total bandwidth of the PCIe 12X I/O drawer loop is higher and runs at DDR speed, while the PCI-X 12X loop runs at SDR speed. The PCI-X and PCIe 12X I/O drawers differ greatly in disk bays. The feature 5802 has 18 SFF disk bays where the feature 5796 or 7314-G30 has zero disk bays. Note both I/O drawers can drive EXP 12S SAS Disk Drawers with SAS controllers located in the 12X I/O drawers.

SAS Disk and SAS Disk Controllers

First, comparing 15k RPM to 15k RPM drives, SAS drives will be slightly faster than SCSI drives. Second, SAS disk prices and maintenance are generally better than SCSI prices. Third, IBM plans to withdraw the last SCSI disk drive from marketing later in 2009, whereas SAS drives are planned to be available for a much longer time. Thus SAS should be preferred in almost every POWER6 configuration scenario. The one exception might be if only one or two disk drives are needed and there is no additional disk growth planned. Then if there are empty SCSI slots and no empty SAS slots, the higher price and maintenance of SCSI drives is overcome by the price of SAS disk and SAS disk controller. But typically, additional drives will be needed over time and the SAS preference is obvious.

The SAS 1.5 GB Write Cache RAID Disk Controller (#5904, #5906, or #5908) provides a great alternative to the SCSI 1.5 GB Write Cache Disk controller (#5778, #5780, or #5782). Though both controllers have the same 1.5 GB write cache and 1.6 GB read cache and both are PCI-X DDR adapters, faster technology is used in the SAS controller, allowing it to provide better performance for many configurations. Note a PCIe 1.5 GB cache adapter is not announced and this may impact some I/O drawer decisions. Both SAS and SCSI controllers are double-slot cards. Both have three ports for attachment of drives, but more than one SAS EXP 12S Disk drawer can be attached to one SAS port, resulting in a larger number of SAS disk drives that can be attached to the SAS controller than SCSI drives to the SCSI controller. Only the SAS controller supports SSD. The SAS controller is supported by AIX, IBM i, and Linux, whereas the SCSI controller is supported only by IBM i. The maximum number of drives per controller is higher with the SAS controller.

The PCIe "medium" size write cache controller (380 MB, #5903) has twice the write cache of the PCI-X medium size write cache controller (175 MB, #5902). Functionally, these SAS disk adapters are very similar. Both have two SAS ports and both have the same write cache protection rules requiring pairs of controllers to be used together. Both controllers support the attachment of the EXP 12S Disk Drawer. But the PCIe controller can support SFF disk drives located in the PCIe 12X I/O drawer and it can support SSD located in an EXP 12S Disk Drawer. Both controllers are supported by AIX and Linux. A statement of direction for IBM i support of the PCIe controller has been shared.

The zero write cache controllers, PCI-X feature 5912 and PCIe feature 5901, provide essentially the same function. But the PCIe controller can support SFF disk drives located in the PCIe 12X I/O drawer. Little performance difference is expected between the two adapters in most client scenarios.

Solid state drives

Solid state drives are a new category of storage, far faster than disk and slower than memory. SSDs represent an opportunity to do things differently. This might be running an application interactively that had been a batch disk-bound job previously to provide new levels of customer service or competitive advantage. Or it might be using a mixture of SSD and HDD (hard disk drives or spinning disk), putting high-use or "hot" data on SSD and putting low-use or "cold" data on HDD to provide a solution with better price/performance than 100% SSD. Do not bother comparing the price of SSD and HDD storage on a "per GB" basis as SSD is significantly more expensive looking at just this aspect. Performance, better capacity utilization, lower energy, and mixed SSD/HDD all need to be considered together to determine this product's value to you.

Feature conversions

The existing components being replaced during a model or feature conversion become the property of IBM and must be returned.

Feature conversions are always implemented on a "quantity of one for quantity of one" basis. Multiple existing features may not be converted to a single new feature. Single existing features may not be converted to multiple new features.

The following conversions are available to customers:

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.
