Each PCICA feature has two independent PCI accelerator cards, and is designed specifically to help maximize SSL acceleration.

  • z/VM Version 4 — zSeries Virtualization Technology

    z/VM offers functions and technology for customers who want to exploit IBM zSeries virtualization technology. z/VM exploits the technological enhancements of the IBM eServer z800 Model 0LF server and offers an ideal platform for consolidating Linux workloads onto a single server. Running Linux as a guest under z/VM can enable you to run hundreds of Linux images while benefiting from the scalability, security, reliability, availability, and serviceability characteristics of the zSeries family of servers.

    Connectivity enhancements to the latest release of TCP/IP for z/VM include a new Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) server, improved TCP/IP stack security designed to prevent some Denial of Service (DOS) attacks, and support for HiperSockets. A "Guest LAN" capability is designed to allow a VM guest to install a virtual HiperSockets adapter and connect it with other virtual network adapters on the same VM host system to form an emulated LAN segment.

    Security for Linux applications is greatly enhanced by VM Guest RSA-Assist, which allows Linux guest virtual machines to exploit the IBM PCI Cryptographic Accelerator (PCICA). This offering provides clear-key RSA support for a large number of Linux guests, enabling hardware Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) acceleration on the z800 Model 0LF.

    To make the management of Linux guests by z/VM easier, the z/VM System Administration Facility is provided for use on a nontailored z/VM system. This facility includes functions that assist the user with the creation and management of multiple Linux images. Among the functions provided by the z/VM System Administration Facility are assignment of disk partitions, query, starting and stopping of Linux images, and other control functions.

    Resources can be allocated among multiple Linux servers running on z/VM, and assignment of hardware to individual Linux images can also be managed by z/VM. A client program that runs under both Linux and CMS is used to send system management commands to the System Administration Facility server.

  • Three Years of Support

Technical description/high level design

The z800 Model 0LF is a single-frame machine, designed such that all of the system configurations fit into one frame. The z800 Model 0LF frame holds the following subsystems:

  • Processor Subsystem
  • I/O Subsystem
  • Power Subsystem

Processor subsystem: The processor MCM carries five Processor Unit (PU) chips that can be configured as one through four Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) engines plus one System Assist Processor (SAP). It exploits a 1-Bus system structure and provides 6 x 1 GB STIs.

I/O subsystem: The I/O Subsystem of the z800 Model 0LF exploits the common I/O adapters as in the z900. This provides a plugging capability for up to 16 I/O cards integrated in the frame:

  • Channels: 16-port ESCON, FICON™ Express
  • GB Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Token Ring, Crypto PCICA

The system provides hot plug and concurrent upgrade/repair capabilities for these attachments, just as in the z900. FICON hardware provides native FICON or FICON Bridge support depending on how it is defined in the IOCDS.

Power packaging and cooling (PPC) subsystem: The PPC Subsystem provides the mechanical, power, and cooling support for the z800 Model 0LF system. The package offers a robust, reliable N+1 design.

OSA-express features: The Open Systems Adapter-Express (OSA-Express) features in combination with the z800 continue to offer you an open platform delivering integrated, direct connectivity to the local area network (LAN) to reduce overhead and latency and to continue to reduce the total cost of computing across your enterprise.

The dual-port OSA-Express features support the Gigabit Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, and Token Ring environments and are all capable of achieving line speed. Results will vary depending upon customer environment and applications.

All of the OSA-Express features support Queued Direct Input/Output (QDIO), a highly efficient data transfer architecture that breaks many of the barriers associated with the Channel Control Word (CCW) architecture. QDIO supports TCP/IP environments only.

The OSA-Express Fast Ethernet and Token Ring features can be configured to support the non-QDIO environment: TCP/IP passthru.

HiperSockets: The HiperSockets function provides "Network in the Box" functionality that allows high-speed any-to-any connectivity among images within a zSeries server without requiring any physical cabling. This "Network in the Box" concept minimizes network latency and maximizes bandwidth capabilities between Linux images to enable optimized e-business and ERP solutions within a single server. Up to four separate "Cluster LANs" can be configured within a server, thereby allowing OS images to be grouped according to the function they provide.

Performance is drastically improved over the currently available OSA-Express Gigabit LPAR to LPAR latency, depending upon the workload characteristics. The z800 Model 0LF does a direct move from one LPAR's memory to another's memory using QDIO.

I/O — CHPIDs assignment: The ability to assign channel path IDs independent of the installed physical position that channel cards have within the I/O cage is a Customer Engineer-only function on the z800 Model 0LF Support Element that allows the active channels to be assigned CHPID numbers chosen by you. All 256 CHPID numbers may be assigned; no more "blocked CHPIDs."

  • New Availability Mapping Tool: A Web-based tool is available through IBM's Resource Link™ to enable an installation to remap CHPID assignments after the server is ordered, but before it is installed. If you want to remap CHPID numbers at install time, this tool must be used to create a diskette to be provided to the install team. The tool can also optionally aid an installation in choosing channels for control units that best exploit the reliability, availability, and serviceability characteristics of the system.

zSeries fiber cabling service: IBM Network Integration and Deployment Services for zSeries Fiber Cabling, available with the z800, is designed to provide you with:

  • A scalable, flexible solution tailored to support your current system environment, with the future in mind.
  • Fiber optic connectivity expertise; personnel trained to deploy a proven fiber optic cabling methodology.
  • Personalized services to effectively plan and install the fiber optic cabling needed to interoperate with your current infrastructure while planning for future needs.
  • Reliable cabling components that meet IBM physical interface specifications.

In the world of open systems and Storage Area Networks (SANs), the changing requirements for fiber optic cabling are fast becoming directly dependent upon the physical system configuration in the data center. As industry-standard components continue to be embraced in the open systems and SAN environment, the fiber optic cabling options become numerous and complex.

Today's marketplace is seeing the adoption of new small form factor (SFF) fiber optic connectors, short wavelength (SX) and long wavelength (LX) laser transceivers, and increasing link speeds from 1 gigabits per second (Gbps) to 10 Gbps. New industry-standard SFF fiber optic connectors and transceivers are utilized on the z800 ESCON and FICON Express features and must coexist with the current infrastructure that utilizes a different "family" of fiber optic connectors and transceivers.

zSeries Fiber Cabling Service delivers to you a contracted service to meet the needs of your system configuration, be it small, medium, or large. Included in this service is an analysis of your existing fiber optic infrastructure and the z800 configuration to determine the cabling options, including jumper cables and speciality cables customized for your system environment.

IBM connectivity experts will help you select the option that is best suited to achieve your business goals to simplify the z800 deployment with effective on-site fiber optic cable planning and installation support.

Cabling responsibilities: If the contract for cabling services is not purchased, then the following tasks must be performed prior to initiating machine installation:

  • All cable planning and support
  • All purchasing of correct qualified cables
  • All installation of any required mode conditioners
  • All installation of any required conversion cables
  • All routing of cables to correct floor cutouts for proper installation to machine
  • All labelling of cables with CHPID numbers for proper installation to machine

Failure to accomplish these cabling tasks properly could lead to additional service charges during the machine installation in order to correct any problems incurred.

Fiber Quick Connect (FQC) is an option in the e-configuration tool.

The FQC features are for factory installation of IBM Fiber Transport Services (FTS) fiber harnesses for connection to ESCON channels in the I/O cage of the z800. FTS fiber harnesses enable connection to FTS direct-attach fiber trunk cables from IBM Global Services.

FQC, coupled with FTS from IBM Global Services, delivers a solution to reduce the amount of time required for on-site installation and setup of cabling, to minimize disruptions, and to isolate the activity from the active system as much as possible. FQC facilitates adds, moves, and changes of ESCON multimode fiber optic cables in the data center and can reduce fiber connection time by up to 80%.

IBM Global Services provides the direct-attach trunk cables, patch panels, and Central Patching Location (CPL) hardware, as well as the planning and installation required to complete the total structured connectivity solution. Four trunks, each with 72 fiber pairs, can displace up to 240 fiber optic cables, the maximum quantity of ESCON channels in an I/O cage on the z800. This significantly reduces ESCON cable bulk.

The CPL panels use the small form factor fiber optic connector, called SC-DC (Single Connector-Dual Contact). Use of the SC-DC connectors in the CPL panel instead of the ESCON Duplex connectors has reduced the required floor space by 50%.

CPL planning and layout is done prior to arrival of the server on-site using the default CHannel Path IDentifier (CHPID) placement report, and documentation is provided showing the CHPID layout and how the direct-attach harnesses are plugged.

Note: FQC supports all of the ESCON channels in the I/O cage. FQC cannot be ordered for selected channels.

Fiber quick connect (#7933, #7934, and #7935): The Fiber Quick Connect (FQC) features are for factory installation of IBM Fiber Transport Services (FTS) fiber harnesses for connection to ESCON channels in the I/O cage.

These descriptions are for information purposes only. They are not orderable. The configuration tool selects the appropriate features and quantities based upon the system configuration, when FQC is requested in the configuration tool.

MTP base bracket (#7933): The MTP Base Bracket is not an orderable feature. When FQC is ordered, the configuration tool selects the required number of brackets based upon the ESCON card quantity.

MTP additional brackets (#7934): This is not an orderable feature. When FQC is ordered, the configuration tool selects the required number of brackets based upon the ESCON card quantity. Each bracket has positions for 10 MTP connectors to be plugged, each MTP supporting 12 fiber pairs (six ESCON channels), for a total of 120 fiber pairs (60 ESCON channels) for each MTP mounting bracket.

MTRJ 6 ft harnesses (five, #7935): This is not an orderable feature. This description is for information purposes only. A quantity of five harnesses supporting 30 channels is supplied with this feature. This direct-attach harness supports 62.5/125-micrometer multimode fiber optic trunk cables. The fiber harness is for use in the I/O cage and supports the 16-port ESCON feature with the optical transceiver supporting the industry-standard small form factor MTRJ connector.

The fiber harness has six MTRJ connectors on one end to attach to six ESCON ports. The opposite end has one MTP connector for plugging into the MTP Coupler Bracket. When FQC is ordered, the configuration tool selects the required number of harnesses based upon the ESCON card quantity.

Reliability: The standard features that provide a high level of reliability include:

  • High-reliability technology components
  • Parts integration to reduce the number of parts in the machine

Availability: The standard features that provide a high level of availability include:

  • Alternate Support Element

  • Fault Tolerant Design

    Fault tolerant design allows hardware recovery to be performed, in most cases, totally transparent to operation and helps reduce the need for a repair action, or defers a repair action to a convenient time scheduled by you.

    • Transparent Engine Sparing

      Engine Sparing is transparent in all modes of operation and requires no operator intervention to invoke a spare PU (if available).

      As a further enhancement, in most cases, the application that was running on the failed engine will be preserved and will continue processing on a new engine with no intervention required. Refer to the Enhanced Application Preservation section below.

    • Dynamic SAP Sparing/Reassignment

      Dynamic recovery is provided for failure of the System Assist Processor (SAP). In the event of a SAP failure, if a spare PU is available, in most cases the spare PU will be dynamically activated as a new SAP. No intervention is required. This capability helps to reduce unplanned outages and can permit a service action, if necessary, to be deferred to a more convenient time.

  • Enhanced Application Preservation

    Application Preservation captures the machine state in the event of a CP failure and will, in most cases, switch processing to a spare PU or another active CP without intervention. This capability helps reduce unplanned outages, can reduce intervention in the recovery process, and helps preserve your application processing environment.

  • Error Correction Code (ECC)

    Memory error checking and correction code can detect and correct single bit errors. Also, because of the memory structure design, errors due to a single memory chip failure can be corrected.

  • Dynamic Memory Sparing

    Memory hardware is equipped with spare memory chips. During normal operations, the system monitors and records accumulation of failing bits in memory chips that are corrected by ECC. Before a failure threshold is reached, which could result in an error that cannot be corrected, the system invokes a spare memory chip in place of the one with the accumulated failing bits. This action may prevent an unscheduled outage for replacement of the memory hardware.

  • LPAR Dynamic Storage Reconfiguration (DSR)

    PR/SM LPAR storage reconfigurations can occur, allowing nondisruptive addition or removal to any partition with a cooperating guest.

  • Enhanced LPAR Dynamic Storage Reconfiguration

    This capability removes the restriction of storage reconfigurations being possible only from an adjacent and above logical partition.

  • Scrubbing

    Storage background scrubbing provides continuous monitoring of storage for the correction of detected faults before the storage is used.

  • Dynamic I/O Configuration

    Dynamic I/O configuration enhances system availability by supporting the dynamic addition, removal, or modification of channel paths, control units, I/O devices, and I/O configuration definitions to both hardware and software without requiring a planned outage.

  • Concurrent Channel Upgrade within the I/O cage

    It is possible to concurrently add ESCON, FICON Express, and OSA-Express provided an STI is available and there are unused channel positions and channel adapter cards available. This capability may help eliminate an outage to upgrade the channel configuration.

  • Concurrent Channel Maintenance

    Concurrent channel maintenance allows replacement of a channel card without having to take the system or the channel group down. All CHPIDs on the affected card must be configured offline.

  • Dual Power Feeds

    The power system offers dual primary (AC) power feeds. Each feed is electrically isolated and enables redundant power paths to each server. Customers are encouraged to provide a dual electrical service to the server, further minimizing any outage due to a single-path power interruption.

  • Redundant Power Thermal Subsystem

    The AC and DC power subsystems are designed with N+1 redundancy. Failure of a power thermal component does not cause a system outage.

  • Storage Recovery

    z800 Model 0LF servers have error checking and correction of L2 and L3 storage. The servers also have line delete for L1 and L2 Caches and Directories and line relocate for the Caches and L2 Directory. z800 servers perform ECC, background scrubbing, and dynamic sparing of L3, L4 memory, as well as ECC on the system memory buses.

  • Concurrent Hardware Maintenance

    Concurrent maintenance enables the replacement of failed units concurrently with system operation. This enhances processor availability by eliminating the need for a system outage to effect the repair. Concurrent maintenance capability exists for the following elements:

    • Power/Thermal
    • ESCON channels
    • FICON channels
    • OSA-Express
    • Hardware Management Console
    • Support Element

    Concurrent Code Patch allows the activation of a patch concurrent with system operation, thereby increasing the availability of the processor by reducing scheduled outages for LIC maintenance. This capability exists for code for the following elements:

    • CP
    • SAP
    • LPAR
    • Power/Thermal
    • ESCON channels
    • FICON channels
    • OSA-Express
    • Hardware Management Console
    • Support Element

    Note: Not all patches are nondisruptive. Some patches still require a Power On Reset to be activated.

Serviceability: The standard features that provide a high level of serviceability include:

  • Automatic error detection and fault isolation concurrent with system operation
  • Automatic remote support capability
  • High degree of concurrent maintenance capability in hardware and code
  • Multiple Channel Swap — an enhancement for channel problem determination allowing up to four channels to be swapped
  • Status Panel showing status of N+1 power system
