IBM Flex System P24L compute node

The IBM Flex System p24L Compute Node is the latest high-density Information Technology Element (ITE) server with POWER7 and EnergyScale technology.

The IBM Flex System p24L Compute Node is a half-wide ITE server with two 6-core 64-bit 3.7 GHz processors, or two 8-core 64-bit 3.2 or 3.5 GHz processors and 16 DIMM slots which can contain up to a maximum of 256 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 p24L Compute Node.

Integrated features on the p24L Compute Node include:

The IBM Flex System p24L Compute Node can be installed only in the IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis (7893-92X). The chassis has 14 ITE bays for ITE servers and supports up to 14 half-wide ITEs or seven full-wide ITEs.

In short-term extended thermal conditions, the p24L 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.

IBM Flex System p24L Compute Node features and benefits include:

IBM PureFlex System

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

The IBM Flex System p24L Compute Node can be ordered as part of a PureFlex System. There are three IBM PureFlex System offerings available:

A PureFlex System consists of:

Additional Flex System Compute Nodes, Flex System Chassis, and IBM PureFlex System 42U Racks can be ordered once the basic requirements for the IBM PureFlex System are met. These additional orders will be indicated by feature number EFD4 (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.

Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS)

The reliability of the IBM Flex System p24L Compute Node (1457-7FL) starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be fault-tolerant. POWER7 uses lower voltage technology in the processor SCMs that improves reliability stacked latches to reduce soft error (SER) susceptibility. During the design and development process, subsystems go through rigorous verification and integration testing processes. During system manufacturing, systems go through a thorough testing process to help ensure high product quality levels.

The processor and memory subsystem contains a number of features designed to avoid or correct environmentally induced, single-bit, intermittent failures as well as handle solid faults in components, including selective redundancy to tolerate certain faults without requiring an outage or parts replacement.

Specified operating environment

Physical specifications

To assure installability and serviceability in non-IBM industry-standard racks, review the installation planning information for any product-specific installation requirements.

Operating environment

Note: The maximum measured value is the worst case power consumption expected from a fully populated server under an intensive workload. The maximum measured value also accounts for component tolerance and non-ideal operating conditions. Power consumption and heat load vary greatly by server configuration and utilization. The IBM Systems Energy Estimator should be used to obtain a heat output estimate based on a specific configuration.

Minimum system configuration

Each 1457-7FL configuration must contain a minimum of:


Note: A minimum of one copy of the IBM Flex System p24L Compute Node Installation/User Guide (ED2F-ED2U) is required at each customer installation.

Optional and additional features

Expansion cards

The IBM Flex System p24L Compute Node has two slots supporting the following PCie expansion cards:

A maximum of one feature number 1761, or 1764 is allowed.

A maximum of two of feature number 1762 or 1763 is allowed.

Software requirements

The IBM Flex System p24L Compute Node server supports the Linux operating system. IBM has qualified two popular Linux distributions for use with the p24L:

One or more of the following operating systems is required for an operational IBM Flex System p24L Compute Node:

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 by downloading it 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 unit. 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.

The requirement that a Linux operating system support agreement be in place with the purchase or renewal of a RHEL license can be met in the following ways:

Every RHEL subscription only offering includes IBM Support access to Red Hat technical resources in the event that IBM needs Red Hat's assistance in problem determination and resolution. In order to assure that Red Hat resources are available to assist IBM throughout the hours of support, IBM is providing clients with the appropriate subscription only offering. If clients are purchasing IBM Support with IBM support coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, they must purchase a RHEL Premium Subscription offering. Clients who are purchasing IBM Support without 24 hour access to IBM may purchase a RHEL Standard Subscription offering.

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.

Planning information

Cable orders

No cables are required.

Security, auditability, and control

Security and auditability features include:

Limitations: The IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis and the IBM Flex System p24L Compute Node have no security-intrusion detection.

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communications facilities.
