Description

Higher Performance and Capacity for iSeries

New processor features for iSeries Models 270, 820, and 840, increase maximum performance. The new processors require OS/400® V5R1.

To complement the higher performance, main storage is significantly increased across the iSeries line, using higher density memory cards.

Four types of processor features are offered on iSeries servers to match your business requirements.

  • Standard processor features — Balanced server resources for mixed workloads.
  • Base processor features — No support provided for 5250 interactive workloads. Any task started through a 5250 session (5250 device or 5250 emulation) where the user waits for a response is considered iSeries interactive work.
  • POD processor features — These processors can provide on-demand capacity for customers with dynamic growth. Additional processor capacity (processors physically resident in the server) can be activated when needed.
  • Domino™ processor features — Dedicated for robust Domino workloads. Refer to Hardware Announcement 101-118, dated April 23, 2001, for more information on these specially designed processor features.

Notes

Each Standard Processor comes with a default amount of interactive CPW, providing capacity for 5250 interactive workloads. Optional interactive features can be purchased to provide additional levels of interactive performance.

Relative performance measurements are derived from commercial processing workload (CPW) on iSeries and AS/400e™ servers. CPW is representative of commercial applications, particularly those that do significant database processing in conjunction with journaling and commitment control. CPW values may not be realized in all environments.

  • Processor CPW — maximum relative performance for this processor feature running commercial processing workloads. This value, stated as client/server CPW in previous releases, can be used to compare relative performance between various processor features.
  • Interactive CPW — relative performance available to perform interactive 5250 workloads. The amount of Interactive CPW consumed will reduce the available Processor CPW by the same amount.

New Upgrade Paths into Capacity Upgrade on Demand

You can now field upgrade your installed Model 730, 740, or 840 to a Model 840 with Capacity Upgrade on Demand. OS/400 V5R1 is required.

Three POD processors are available:

  • Model 840 8/12-Way POD (#2352): 8 base processors with four on demand
  • Model 840 12/18-Way POD (#2353): 12 base processors with six on demand
  • Model 840 18/24-Way POD (#2354): 18 base processors with six on demand

After installation, you can purchase an activation feature to unlock the reserve processor capacity at the server console. You turn on incremental stand-by capacity on a processor-by-processor basis.

HSL OptiConnect

New system-to-system connectivity opens up the world of clusters and continuous availability to a growing set of iSeries customers with:

  • Lower cost
  • Higher performance
  • Easy-to-use functions

HSL technology was introduced in V4R5 as the means to attach I/O towers to the base system unit. You can use this HSL fabric for high-speed, system-to-system interconnect running up to ten times faster than existing SPD OptiConnect, which HSL OptiConnect replaces. The result is greatly expanded capability for high-availability options and distributed application scenarios. In the world of e-business, continuous availability and distributed workload are minimum requirements. You want affordability and choices as well. Here's a solution for every customer, from the smallest Model 270 to the largest Model 840.

OptiConnect for OS/400 software, option 23 supports HSL OptiConnect. A single software license supports any combination of HSL, SPD, and Virtual OptiConnect connections between iSeries systems.

Model 270 and 820 servers with a new processor feature and OS/400 V5R1 are HSL OptiConnect enabled. All Models 830 and 840 shipped with V5R1, have in the base, #9754 or #9755, for HSL OptiConnect. Models 830 and 840 shipped with V4R5, need to add features #2754 or #2755 for OptiConnect. HSL OptiConnect uses the existing 3m, 6m, and 15m copper HSL cables. The required software, OptiConnect for OS/400, is priced separately from the hardware. Refer to Software Announcement 201-112 , dated April 23, 2001, for more information.

HSL Switchable Disk

Two nodes in a cluster can easily be configured using GUI-based simple cluster creation wizards to set up the switched disk. These nodes may be either logical partitions within a single system, or two systems connected on an HSL loop with the tower containing the disk to be switched. Even the smallest customer can benefit from the continuous availability of iSeries switched-disk clusters based on independent ASP support. Integrated File System (IFS) files can be switched from an application on one system to a second copy of the application on another system.

OS/400 HA Switchable Resources (Option 41) supports switched-disk operations through the cluster management interface, including IBM Cluster Management Utility. Refer to Software Announcement 201-112 , dated April 23, 2001, for more information.

Logical Partitioning (LPAR) enhancements include support for HSL OptiConnect and switchable disk functions. Any number of partitions can share access to every HSL OptiConnect loop and any partition can be the owner or target system for a switchable I/O Tower. In addition, the switched-disk functions that operate with the switchable tower can be used to switch disks at the I/O Adapter level.

Switchable Disk Towers: Your present investment in iSeries is leveraged with the use of your existing PCI expansion towers (introduced in 2000) now as switchable disk towers.

Four I/O towers and two iSeries servers can share a single HSL OptiConnect loop and some or all of the towers can be configured as switchable towers. DASD units in these towers can be configured into independent ASPs, and switched under control of the cluster manager between adjacent iSeries systems. Other I/O within the tower is also switched and can be recognized and used by the system that becomes the new owner of the tower.

Refer to Software Announcement 201-112 , OS/400 V5R1, for more information.

Fibre Channel Adapter

With the PCI fibre disk and tape controller feature, the iSeries can now attach external disk and tape subsystems via high-speed fibre channel adapters. These controllers enhance iSeries ability to participate in Storage Area Networks (SANs), which are rapidly expanding their use of fibre channel technology.

Fibre Channel attachment for tape drives offers tremendous performance capability and long distance options. With switches, hubs, and gateways, you can share these valuable resources with multiple servers. IBM products include the 2109 Models S08 and S16, SAN Fibre Channel Switch, and the 3534 Model 1RU, SAN Fibre Channel Hub. Other vendor products may also work.

Some iSeries customers may find SAN-attached DASD devices to be appealing for their environment. If consolidating large amounts of DASD from different platforms is important, you should consider SAN. Note, however, a complex commercial business environment usually requires good, predictable response time to maintain user productivity and satisfaction. Carefully consider the performance implications of sharing resources in this environment, as the sharing may introduce lower and more variable performance. For these critical workloads, dedicated direct-attach DASD resource can ensure more predictable performance. Feature #2766, PCI Fibre Channel Disk Controller, for attachment into SAN for DASD is offered as an optional feature, when ordered with RPQ 847126.

DVD-RAM

DVD-RAM is a new optical technology that advances the capabilities that CD-ROM brought to the iSeries. With DVD-RAM on iSeries servers, you gain an option for lower cost:

  • Software distribution
  • Data and software backup
  • System backup
  • Data interchange (ISO 9660, and UDF formats)

The capacity of the DVD media is over seven times larger than CD-ROM. Software that may have been distributed on multiple CDs may now only need one DVD-RAM cartridge, reducing media cost. The media capacity for a DVD-RAM cartridge is 4.7 GB per side versus 650 MB on CD-ROM. Its highest capacity can be as much as 9.4 GB per side. The drive will read CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, and DVD-RAM media. It can write only DVD-RAM media. The speed at which it transfers data from the media is roughly equivalent to a 24x speed CD-ROM, or about 3.6 MB/sec average sustained. When the data is compressed in a 3:1 compression ratio, which is average for iSeries servers, then a single DVD-RAM cartridge can save about 13 GB of data in an unattended save mode. This may be ideal for backing up the smaller iSeries models such as a Model 270. For software of sizes 13 GB or less for saving, a tape drive may no longer be needed on the iSeries.

This DVD-RAM function is available as an integrated feature (#4430, or #4530) in iSeries servers. It is also available as an external stand-alone unit, the IBM 7210 Model 025 DVD-RAM Drive, that offers the same high reliability and availability function as the iSeries integrated DVD-RAM features.

Refer to Hardware Announcement 101-121 , dated April 23, 2001, for more information.

Operations Console with LAN Connectivity

LAN connectivity enables a single PC operations console to function as the system console for multiple iSeries servers and/or multiple LPAR partitions. With the new LAN connectivity, you can use existing TCP/IP networks to connect multiple iSeries servers to a master operations console to consolidate operations in a single location. This capability requires a console-dedicated LAN IOA feature in the iSeries server.

More iSeries Rack Offerings

Five additional iSeries rack configurations can now be ordered.

  • An empty iSeries rack
  • An iSeries rack with one Model 270
  • An iSeries rack with a Base 1.8m I/O Tower for a Model 840
  • An iSeries rack with one PCI Expansion Tower
  • An iSeries rack with one to four PCI Expansion Units

Rack mounting can conserve valuable floor space.

New External Device Support

IBM 1519 Model 100 Integrated xSeries Adapter for iSeries: The IBM Integrated xSeries Adapter for iSeries provides a direct high-speed attachment of an xSeries server to an iSeries. The Integrated xSeries Adapter, installed in select xSeries servers, extends iSeries integration with Microsoft™ Windows™ 2000 Server to xSeries high-performance n-way Intel architecture servers. With the Integrated xSeries Adapter, more Windows users and more complex Windows applications can be integrated with iSeries than are currently possible with the Integrated xSeries Server offerings.

Refer to Hardware Announcement 101-119 , dated April 23, 2001, for more information.

IBM 7329 Model 308 SLR100 Tape Autoloader: The IBM 7329 Model 308 SLR100 Tape Autoloader is a stand-alone automated tape backup system for use on iSeries servers. It provides media capacity of 400 GB (800 GB assuming 2:1 compression), automated data storage at a rate of 5 MB per second (10 MB per second with 2:1 compression). This data rate is twice the rate of previous 1/4-inch tape backup used on iSeries. In addition to reading and writing on new SLR100 50 GB or 5 GB data cartridges, the 7329 Model 308 provides backward write and read compatibility with MLR3 (SLR50) and backward read compatibility with MLR1 (DC 5010) tape formats. Attachment to iSeries is via a SCSI interface adapter.

The media and tape formats supported by the 7329 Model 308 Tape Autoloader are fully compatible with the media and tape formats supported by iSeries features #4487 and #4587, 50 GB 1/4-Inch Cartridge Tape.

Refer to Hardware Announcement 101-120 , dated April 23, 2001, for more information.

New iSeries Features for Communication and Expansion

One-quarter-inch cartridge tape features #4487 and #4587, provide 50 GB of storage capacity. With data compression, up to 100 GB can be stored per cartridge, providing unattended backup capability for a broad range of medium-sized iSeries systems.

These tape features are an iSeries-specific implementation of Scalable Linear Recording (SLR) technology, identified as SLR100. SLR100 tape technology is also available on iSeries via an external tape automation device, the IBM 7329 Model 308 SLR100 Tape Autoloader.

A PCI I/O Expansion Unit (#5078) provides space for an additional 14 I/O slots if you don't need the additional disk unit space that a #5074 PCI Expansion Tower provides. #5078 can be ordered either as a complete expanded I/O Tower (#5078 on top of a #5074) with a combined total of 45 disk unit slots and 28 PCI slots, or as a field upgrade to add on to an installed #5074 or #9079. Feature #0578, PCI Expansion Unit in Rack, provides the same function as #5078, only in a stand-alone iSeries rack.

Communications can be improved with several new adapters for iSeries. A 1 GB Ethernet UTP IOA (#2760) adds an unshielded-twisted-pair wiring option to the existing optical offering. This lower cost option carries only slightly less capacity than optical. The Dual WAN/Modem IOA (#2772/#2773) provides adapters with integrated modems for two WAN lines. The new 155 MB MMF ATM (#2817) adapter for asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) communications can improve performance in a TCP/IP environment.

Product Positioning

iSeries Servers

Customers' business needs continue to drive their server decisions. The iSeries product line is designed to handle different types of work in varying customer environments and capacity requirements. When deciding which iSeries model best fits the business need, you should consider workload characteristics, performance and capacity requirements, and hardware feature characteristics. Business plans, planned future applications, and growth should also be considered in the decision.

iSeries servers are an ideal choice for businesses that:

  • Want high-performance, scalable servers capable of managing multiple workloads on one physical footprint
  • Need to run applications, which span operating environments (OS/400, Linux, Lotus® Domino, Java™, Microsoft Windows, and UNIX®), yet do not want to proliferate diverse servers and do not want to staff diverse skills
  • Value the integration of the database, HTTP server, Web application server, security, Java, and more, recognizing that much of the systems integration work and testing has been done before the system leaves the IBM plant
  • Are predisposed to implement turnkey solutions with some customization rather than implement "built from the ground up" customized solutions requiring significant systems integration skills
  • Want to minimize management and operational complexity
  • Place a high priority on "speed to implement"
  • Require 99.9+% single-system availability
  • Require a highly secure server
  • Want to extend core business applications to the Web

iSeries Models : The iSeries product line consists of four models, positioned for the following opportunity segments:

  • Scalable Mixed Transaction Servers
    • Model 840
    • Model 830
    • Model 820
    • Model 270
  • Mid-tier Application and Web-Servers
    • Model 820
    • Model 270
  • Special Purpose Servers
    • Dedicated Server for Domino (Models 270, 820)

Because a single iSeries model can satisfy different business workload requirements, it is important to position the right server solution (model/processor) for the job. There are four distinct processor types that can be ordered for the various iSeries models — each delivering unique price/performance characteristics.

  • BASE Processors
  • STANDARD Processors
  • POD Processors
  • DOMINO Processors

iSeries Processors

  • BASE Processors

    iSeries Model 270 and Model 820 have base processor features. Base processors are designed to handle application and Web serving workloads like i2, Logility, QAD, EXE, Synquest, Prelude, Ariba, WebSphere™ Commerce Suite, Xtricity, Siebel, Engage, Youcentric, Onyx, SAP, J.D. Edwards OneWorld, Intentia, and Baan. Base processors do not include support for applications using 5250 programming interfaces (measured as Interactive CPW on iSeries servers).

  • STANDARD Processors

    iSeries Model 270, 820, 830, and 840 have standard processor features. Standard processors are designed to handle mixed workloads with the exception of a few uniprocessors that represent the entry point into a model. The "exception" processors should be limited to just transaction workloads (no compute-intensive work). All standard processors include support for applications using 5250 programming interfaces, including the ability to add additional interactive support through the purchase of Interactive features (optional levels of Interactive CPW). Refer to the table below for standard processor details.

  • POD Processors

    iSeries Model 840 has POD processor features. These features deliver extra (on-demand) capacity that is "built-in" ... you don't pay for the extra processor capacity until you actually need it.

    This new iSeries technology is referred to as Capacity Upgrade on Demand. It takes the best-of-breed features from several competitive offerings and puts them together into a single compelling solution with:

    • Processor activation code management (keys)
    • Temporary activation option (14 days)
    • Non-disruptive activation (no IPL required)
    • Single processor activation granularity
    • Scalability and flexibility through upgrades

    ISP/ASP and large customers with dynamic capacity needs driven by unplanned-for spikes in processing power will find exceptional value in the POD processors offered on the iSeries Model 840:

    • 8-way, 12-way, or 18-way starting capacity
    • Reduced dependency on capacity planning
    • Reduced IPL needs
    • Minimized risk of under-sizing workload

  • DOMINO Processors

    iSeries Model 270 and Model 820 have Domino processor features. Domino processors are designed to handle Domino workloads. When you put one of the Domino processors in a Model 270 or Model 820, you have built what we call a Dedicated Server for Domino (DSD). These processors are designed specifically for Domino workloads and have limited capacity for workloads considered non-Domino (5250, or local database)

Solutions for Target Workloads

  • Application and Web Serving Workloads — describes compute (CPU) intensive processing, often requiring minimal database processing. There is no requirement for 5250 interface support typically used in many traditional transaction-based applications.
  • Transaction Workloads — this environment requires the traditional iSeries Balance® of server resources (a fairly even mix of CPU and I/O processing).
  • Domino Workloads — Domino workloads consist of the following:
    • E-mail
    • Calendaring and Scheduling
    • Web Serving
    • Standard Lotus Domino template applications (discussion database, workflow) and custom-developed applications written with Domino Designer that perform no local relational database access
  • Mixed Workloads — this business environment requires an overall balance of server resources. A server truly capable of a mixture of applications simultaneously running at optimal performance ... no matter the type of workloads.

Fibre Channel

Fibre channel provides another option for attaching tape devices and disk devices.

  • Fibre Channel — Tape Devices

    For tape, fibre channel presents new opportunities for resource sharing and distance. With hubs or switches, one can attain a distance of 10 km and one can allow multiple iSeries to share one tape device.

  • Fibre Channel — Disk Devices

    The Fibre Channel Disk Controller feature (#2766) enables you to attach disk storage units into a SAN configuration, using point-to-point or arbitrated loop topologies. This feature also requires RPQ 847126, an information-only RPQ, with guidelines on performance and configuration.

iSeries Clustering

What is a "cluster?": A cluster is a group of connected whole computers used as a single resource. "Whole computer" means each can function independently; it has one or more processors, memory, I/O, and its own copy of the operating system. The connection between the computers, called the communication fabric, can be simple, such as a standard LAN/WAN. It can also be more sophisticated, supporting special functions and higher performance.

The vision for iSeries in the clustering arena is simple ... around-the-clock availability for your customer's critical applications and data. We look to provide this capability through the use of current and future technologies that include a combination of cluster fabrics and cluster types.

iSeries Cluster Fabrics

The cluster fabric is the data highway that connects nodes in the cluster. The most common fabrics are:

  • 1 GB Ethernet
  • ATM
  • SPD OptiConnect (replaced with HSL OptiConnect)
  • HSL OptiConnect (new with V5R1)

iSeries Cluster Types

A variety of cluster types can be created using iSeries technologies. Each type of cluster has specific customer benefits. Cluster types can be combined to provide a complete range of iSeries clustering advantages.

  • Administration Cluster — Cluster Resource Services and Cluster Management can be used to monitor up to 128 cluster nodes.
  • Growth Cluster (Horizontal) — Improvements over SPD OptiConnect (configuration simplicity, improvements in data transfer speed, lower cost) enable a solution for distributing work across multiple nodes in the cluster.
  • Growth Cluster (Multi-Tier) — Improvements over SPD OptiConnect (configuration simplicity, improvements in data transfer speed, lower cost) enable a solution for implementing multitier application solutions.
  • Replication Cluster — Fast locally attached server switching (including non-disruptive backup options) between a primary server and backup servers for both planned and unplanned outages. Typically involves high-availability business partner software.
  • Switchable Disk Cluster — New with V5R1, fast locally attached server switching between a primary server and backup servers for I/O towers that contain DASD used to store IFS files in independent ASPs (I-ASP). With OS/400 V5R1, only IFS objects can be switched may or may not involve high-availability business partner software.

Switchable Disk Cluster: In V5R1, the iSeries introduces I-ASP for IFS data types. An I-ASP enables more than one iSeries server to assume ownership of a pool of storage (be able to recognize it and to use it).

The transfer of ownership from one server to another occurs at two levels, one at the OS level and the second at the disk tower level. In essence one iSeries takes over ownership of a mutually shared disk tower residing on the same HSL OptiConnect loop and activates the data into the address space via a special and automatic IPL.

The benefit of this function is that two iSeries servers are attached via an HSL OptiConnect loop to act as a switchable disk cluster. In case of a planned or unplanned outage, within minutes the backup server can take over the I/O tower containing the switchable disk. Because this technology is limited to IFS files in V5R1, the primary market will be for Domino installations (eliminating the need for two copies of the disk).

In addition, Domino has achieved ClusterProven™ status, confirming to the market that a total solution can act as a single resource providing both application and data resiliency.

ClusterProven: What do you get when you combine cluster middleware, cluster-enabled applications, and iSeries cluster technologies such as cluster fabrics, cluster types, cluster resource services, cluster management, data resiliency, application resiliency ... a ClusterProven solution.

With V5R1, even more solutions have been "classified" as ClusterProven — one more way that a customer can be confident that the total solution he is choosing can provide the highest levels of availability. Click on:

iSeries Capacity Upgrade on Demand

Capacity Upgrade on Demand represents a set of features for certain iSeries servers that allow activation of otherwise inactive "built-in" processor resources. With the exception of any IBM authorized trial periods, customers must agree not to activate "built-in" capacity or allow a third party or third-party product to activate "built-in" capacity, without the customer's payment for such "built-in" capacity and receipt of required activation codes from IBM or its authorized business partners. Customers must also acknowledge and agree that upon expiration of any authorized trial period, the server will revert to its pre-trial period capacity if the customer does not pay for the temporarily activated "built-in" capacity and apply the required activation codes.

POD Processors: POD processors are available on the Model 840. Three new POD processor features now complement the existing choices of 12-way or 24-way processors.

The three new POD processor features come with a base number of active processors and a number of on-demand processors in stand-by mode.

* Interactive performance is limited by total capacity of activated processors.

Temporary Activation Option: Do you want to "try on" processor power to determine your own best own permanent fit?

You can add performance instantly using the Temporary Activation Option.

All of the processors on the server can be activated for up to 14 days. No IPL is required, unless LPAR is used on the server and you want to move activated processors between partitions. The 14-day clock counts the elapsed hours while the server is powered up.

During the 14 days of temporary activation, you should order a permanent activation for a specific number of processors to maintain a desired level of overall performance. After the purchase of a permanent activation (for any number of processors) the Temporary Activation Option is reset and a new 14-day Temporary Activation Option for the remaining On-Demand processors is available. So, with future changes, you can still opt to grow processor capacity.

Permanent POD Activation: Once you decide to permanently activate some or all of your On-Demand processors, you must contact your business partner or IBM representative to order some quantity of feature #1604. Once an order reaches the IBM manufacturing site, a POD Activation Code unique to the target server is generated, mailed, and posted at a Web site for quick access.

Several days should be allowed for order processing and POD Activation Code posting to take place. This is an important consideration in the use of your Temporary Activation Option.

A detailed step-by-step outline for the order process associated with POD Activation Codes can be reviewed in the Planning Guide for iSeries Capacity Upgrade on Demand , available at:

iSeries Rack Mounting

iSeries servers are available in the following rack configurations:

  • An empty iSeries rack
  • An iSeries rack with one Model 270 server
  • An iSeries rack with two Model 270 servers
  • An iSeries rack with one Model 830 server
  • An iSeries rack with a Base 1.8m I/O Tower for a Model 840 Server
  • An iSeries rack with a Base 1.8m I/O Tower and a PCI Expansion Tower for a Model 840 server
  • An iSeries rack with one PCI Expansion Tower
  • An iSeries rack with two PCI Expansion Towers
  • An iSeries rack with one to four PCI Expansion Units

The iSeries racks are 1.8 meters high (36 EIA units) with EIA standard 19-inch width. Marketing configurator support is not available for management of unused space available within any of the rack offerings. Empty space will have filler panels installed when shipped from the plant.

The following descriptions are for the new specify codes used with the added offerings:

#5074 Lower Unit in Rack (#0123): This specify indicates that one #5074 PCI Expansion Tower is mounted in the bottom of a #0551, iSeries Rack. #0123 may be specified on initial orders and on field upgrades, but field installing a #5074 into a #0551 is not offered (due to the weight of the #5074).

Prerequisite:

  • #0551 iSeries Rack

PCI RAID Disk Unit Controller (#4778/#9778): The #4778/#9778 is an Ultra2 SCSI controller with a maximum compressed write cache size of 104 MB that provides RAID-5 protection and compression for internal disk units and also internal tape units, CD-ROM and DVD-RAM units.

#4778 is an optional disk unit controller for Models 270, 820, 830, and 840.

#9778 is the base disk unit controller on Models 830, 840, SB2, and SB3.

#4778/#9778 support both disk compression and enhanced modes. The mode of operation is determined by a hardware jumper. It is shipped in enhanced mode, which enables compression of the write cache and Extended Adaptive Cache (feature #4331, 1.6 GB Read Cache Device, is needed for the OS/400 Extended Adaptive Cache function.) By moving the hardware jumper, the controller will function in disk-compression mode.

In addition to providing RAID-5 protection for disks, #4778/#9778 is also designed to work as a high-performance controller for disks protected by system mirroring or disks with no protection. In the RAID-5 configuration, disk unit protection is provided at less cost than mirroring, and with greater performance than system checksums.

The #4778/#9778 controllers support a maximum of 15 disk units (18 on the Model 270.)

A minimum of four disk units of the same capacity are needed for a valid RAID 5 configuration. A maximum of four arrays are allowed per controller, with a maximum of ten disk units allowed per array. All disk units in an array must be of the same capacity. Parity is spread across four disk units for arrays of four to seven disk units. Parity can be spread across either four or eight disk units for arrays of eight to ten disk units. For systems started with eight to ten disk units in an array the parity, for that array, will be spread across eight disk units. For systems that are started with less than eight disk units in an array and later field upgraded to eight, nine, or ten disk units, the RAID function must be stopped and then started before the parity will be spread across eight disk units.

Refer to Disk Unit Table for a list of disks that can be placed into RAID-5 arrays.

The #4778/#9778 controls up to two removable media devices (internal tape, CD-ROM, or DVD-RAM).

Prerequisite: Available PCI slot under a base or optional feature PCI IOP. OS/400 V5R1, or later, is required.

Security, Auditability, and Control

iSeries servers use the security and auditability features of IBM Operating System/400®. Use of these facilities is optional. The security measures supplied by OS/400 are designed to reduce the risk of users changing or destroying data resources, but do not prevent it. The OS/400 security features include the use of passwords, a security option to limit a user to only those functions provided by customer-designed menus, and a security option to limit read/write access for files, libraries, and folders during normal operations. To achieve increased security, the OS/400 controls should be combined with physical security, division of duties and other appropriate measures.

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

Terms and Conditions

These products are available for purchase under the terms of the IBM Customer Agreement (ICA).

IBM hardware products are manufactured from new parts and used parts. In some cases, the hardware product may have been previously installed. Regardless, IBM's warranty terms apply.

All other terms are the same as those applicable to the IBM machine in which the feature is installed.

Prices

The prices provided in this announcement are suggested retail prices for the U.S. only and are provided for your information only. Dealer prices may vary, and prices may also vary by country.
