The IBM z/800 combined with z/OS.e is intended to bring increased flexibility, choice, and capacity to you for adding new workloads and for running a mix of new and traditional work. A few examples of the potential capacity increases available to you are:
64-bit architecture, compared with the architecture available on many of the systems currently in use in this performance range, should offer improvements beyond those stated below for the processor comparisons. Not all comparisons are listed here. For more detailed information, including Large System Performance Reference (LSPR) information, contact your IBM representative.
When comparing the z800 family to many of the currently used systems in the same performance category, the following performance improvements may be possible:
Performance Processor Comparison Estimates with OS/390® Version 2 Release 10: Compared to some of the 9672 Generation 4 servers, the z800 server is expected to offer the following performance advantage:
2066-0A1 1.1 -- 1.4 times 9672-R15 2066-0B1 1.6 -- 2.0 times 9672-R15 2066-0C1 1.7 -- 2.4 times 9672-R15 2066-0A2 1.9 -- 2.4 times 9672-R25 2066-0A2 1.3 -- 1.7 times 9672-R35
Relative to the following 9672 G5 models, the expected performance of the selected z800 server models is:
2066-0A1 0.9 -- 1.0 times 9672-RA6 2066-0B1 1.2 -- 1.4 times 9672-RA6 2066-0C1 1.1 -- 1.3 times 9672-R16 2066-001 1.4 -- 1.7 times 9672-T16 2066-0A2 1.0 -- 1.3 times 9672-R26 2066-002 0.9 -- 1.2 times 9672-R36 2066-003 1.0 -- 1.3 times 9672-R46 2066-004 1.1 -- 1.3 times 9672-R56
Relative to the following MP3000 servers, the expected performance ratios to selected z800 server models is:
2066-0A1 1.2 -- 1.5 times 7060-H30 2066-0B1 0.9 -- 1.1 times 7060-H50 2066-0A2 1.1 -- 1.3 times 7060-H70
The above performance estimates are Internal Throughput Rate Ratios (ITRR) based on measurements and projections using standard IBM benchmarks in a controlled environment and are subject to change without notice. The actual throughput that any user will experience will vary depending upon considerations such as the amount of multiprogramming in the user's job stream, the I/O configuration, and the workload processed. Therefore, no assurance can be given that an individual user will achieve throughput improvements equivalent to the performance ratios stated here. Such performance estimates are provided "AS IS" and no warranties or guarantees are expressed or implied by IBM. Software licenses that are based on machine performance will be billed based on these estimates until such time that IBM determines and publishes final performance measurements, at which time appropriate billing adjustments may be made as determined by IBM.
Technical Description/High-Level Design
The z800 is a stand-alone single-frame package, designed such that all of the system configurations fit into one frame. The z800 frame holds the following subsystems:
Processor Subsystem: The Processor Subsystem for the z800 is provided on one unique building block, the Basic Processor Unit (BPU) card, which is similar to the processor card in the Multiprise 3000. The processor MCM carries five Processor Unit chips, memory, and optional Cryptographic Co-processors.
The system provides hot plug and concurrent upgrade/repair capabilities for these attachments, just as in the z900. FICON Express hardware provides native FICON or FICON Bridge support.
Power Packaging and Cooling (PPC) Subsystem: The PPC Subsystem provides the mechanical, power, and cooling support for the z800 system as a dense, cost-efficient, self-contained package for entry offerings.
Service Element (SE) Subsystem:
The SE Subsystem is based on IBM's standard SE design of the z900
server family, also packaged on a ThinkPad® inside the frame. Just
like the z900, two SEs are standard on the z800 and the z800 system
requires a connection to a Hardware Management Console. The code package
includes a Repair & Verify package with online guided repair procedures.
Functions and Features: The IBM zSeries 800
The following table describes the content of the eight z800 general-purpose models including, by model, the number of:
Each model has a mandatory quantity of CPs, SAPs, and spare PUs assigned. Any remaining PUs may be assigned to optional functions such as optional ICFs, IFLs, CUoD, or CBU.

ESAME 64-bit Architecture: ESAME is a 64-bit architecture mode that is a superset of ESA/390. The ESAME architecture was first exploited in the z900 and is now available to customers requiring zSeries functionality with total capacity less than that currently offered by the z900.
The 64-bit I/O architecture offers an Indirect Address List, which allows
all programs to designate data addresses for I/O. Use of 64-bit operands
and general registers for all I/O instructions is added. Gigabit
Ethernet architecture is expanded to allow 64-bit Queued I/O queuing
structures, in addition to the 64-bit Indirect Addressing List for data
addresses for I/O. IEEE Floating Point architecture adds 12 new
instructions for 64-bit integer conversion. The Coupling architecture
allows CFCC to drive the ISC3 and ICB3 channels and allows full CFCC
64-bit addressing. 64-bit addressing CFCC can be loaded into VM guest
storage. The 64-bit SIE architecture allows an ESAME host to have an
ESA/390 or ESAME guest. Zone Relocation is expanded to 64-bit for LPAR
and z/VM. Use of 64-bit operands and general registers for all Crypto
Coprocessor instructions and PCI Crypto instructions is added.
Hardware Offering Assumptions
Multi Chip Module (MCM): The MCM Part Number is fully populated with five Processor Units. Model granularity is delivered via Licensed Internal Code Control Code (LICCC). The largest model (4+1) does not include a spare PU, similar to G5 and G6 offerings but different than the z900.
Memory: Minimum physical memory is 8 GB with additional offerings of 16 GB, 24 GB, and 32 GB in 8 GB increments. The z800 also contains one keystore DIMM, which will support all memory configurations. Each DIMM pair is a Field Replaceable Unit (FRU).
Cryptography (Crypto): The Crypto coprocessor hardware is optional on the z800. Two Crypto chips (packaged as SCMs) can be plugged onto the processor card. The Crypto SCMs are FRUs which can be plugged in the field. The PCI-Crypto cards, PCI-CC and PCI-CA, are available on all eight general-purpose models. PCI-CA only is available on the Linux only model (0LF). The Crypto coprocessor is a prerequisite for the PCI-CC and PCI-CA.
Balanced utilization of all hardware cryptographic engines is the key to the performance achievements of zSeries servers. z/OS transparently routes requests for cryptographic services to an appropriate, available engine and in the case of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) transactions, cryptographic requests are load-balanced across all available engines, taking maximum advantage of zSeries scalability.
z800 cryptographic functions are intended to include the full range of cryptographic operations used for e-business, e-commerce, and financial institution applications.
Configuration Capabilities: The Channel Subsystem provides six 1 gigabyte/second STI links for I/O and Coupling Facility connectivity. Of these six I/O domains, four can have their Gigabyte STI links be multiplexed to four 333 megabyte/second I/O slots. These 16 I/O slots are intended to provide ample I/O connectivity capabilities. Each of these slots can drive one of the new I/O features common with the z/900 (15-ESCON, FICON Express, OSA-E channels, and so on) such that 240 ESCON channels can be provided. The remaining two I/O domains can be used to drive ICB Peer CF links (CBP), IC links (ICP), and other devices that require CHPID numbers.
In e-business, two of the most stringent demands for survival are continuous availability and near-transparent disaster recovery (D/R). Systems that deliver continuous availability combine the characteristics of high availability and continuous operations to deliver high levels of service (24x7x52). To attain the highest levels of continuous availability and near-transparent D/R, the solution should be based on geographical clusters and data mirroring. These technologies are the backbone of the GDPS solution.
Since IBM Parallel Sysplex® clustering technology enables resource sharing and dynamic workload balancing, enterprises are now able to dynamically manage workloads across multiple sites to achieve high levels of availability. GDPS complements a multisite Parallel Sysplex implementation, and is intended to provide a single, automated solution to dynamically manage storage subsystem mirroring (disk and tape), processors, and network resources to allow a business to attain continuous availability and near-transparent business continuity (disaster recovery) without data loss. GDPS is intended to minimize and potentially eliminate the impact of any failure, including disasters or a planned outage. It is intended to provide the ability to perform a controlled site switch for both planned and unplanned site outages, with no data loss, maintaining full data integrity across multiple volumes and storage subsystems and the ability to perform a normal Data Base Management System (DBMS) restart not DBMS recovery at the opposite site. GDPS is application independent (covers your complete application environment) and supports both the synchronous (PPRC) as well as the asynchronous (XRC) forms of remote copy.
GDPS is intended to provide the following functions:
For a more detailed description of GDPS, refer to the white paper available at:
Coupling Considerations: The z800 system includes the technology intended to support Parallel Sysplex environments. If z800 systems are coupled with other z800 or z900 systems in a Parallel Sysplex cluster, it is recommended that Peer Mode ISC or ICB (CFP, CBP) links be configured for the coupling links.
Coupling connections to non-z/Architecture systems such as G5 and G6 servers can be provided via the ISC-3 (CFP) links configured as Compatibility Mode (CFS, CFR) links, if necessary. There will be no ICB Compatibility Mode links offered.
The z800 also supports the Internal Coupling links (ICP) for connectivity to Coupling Facilities within the same server.
The required external time reference (ETR) for Parallel Sysplex is provided via an ETR connection to a Sysplex Timer® via an OSC/ETR card (which contains one port per card). This connection is included in the optional zSeries Fiber Cabling Service.
The 0CF Coupling Facility models of the z800 are intended to initially support the Coupling Facility Control Code (CFCC) level 12, which includes 64-bit addressing, thus eliminating the 2 GB control store limit.
Clustering Architecture The Intelligent Resource Director: Several architecture features are provided that enable the z/OS Workload Manager (WLM) to interact with the I/O Supervisor and with the channel subsystem which is intended to provide more efficient use of the system's resources. These new facilities allow the central processors, channels, and associated DASD I/O resources to be managed by z/OS WLM on a policy basis for the LPARs within the cluster. They are intended to provide z/OS WLM with the ability to dynamically interact with PR/SM in order to control the use of CPU and channel path resources within the Intelligent Resource Director. Additionally, they allow z/OS WLM to prioritize the execution of queued I/O operations at the channel subsystem.
LPAR CPU Management: This architecture facility is intended to provide z/OS WLM with the ability to dynamically alter the logical partition (LP) weights for each of the logical partitions within the LPAR cluster, thereby influencing PR/SM to help each logical partition receive the percentage of shared CPU resources necessary to meet its workload goals.
Dynamic Channel Path Management (DCM): These interfaces allow z/OS WLM to dynamically reconfigure channel path resources within the cluster and are intended to help ensure that a business-critical application's I/O processing requirements, necessary to meet its workload goals, are not being delayed due to the unavailability or overutilization of channel path resources.
Channel Subsystem Priority Queuing: This facility provides z/OS's WLM with the ability to prioritize and thereby influence the channel subsystem's execution of queued I/O requests. The benefit is intended to ensure that the most important I/O across all LPARs will be handled before less important I/O requests that are waiting to use some channel.
Performance: The performance design of the z/Architecture helps to enable the entire server to support a new standard of performance for all applications by expanding upon the balanced system approach. As CMOS technology has been enhanced to support additional processing power and more engines, the IBM z800 was designed to support the increase in processing power. The I/O subsystem supports greater bandwidth through the use of FICON Express and associated DASD, thus providing for larger and quicker data movement into the server. Support of larger amounts of data within the server required improved management of storage configurations made available through combination of the software operating system and hardware support of 64-bit for real and virtual storage. New coupling links in the architecture allow customers to continue to exploit the advantage of the leading clustering solution in the industry, Parallel Sysplex. The combined balanced system effect allows for dramatic increases in performance across a broad spectrum of applications.
Subchannel Constraint Relief: As users see their I/O configurations grow, and in order to meet the high storage and high availability demands of their workloads, they must define more and more devices and subchannels to their system. Moreover, users that exploit the Parallel Access Volumes (PAV) or Peer-to-Peer Remote Copy features, including the PPRC Dynamic Address Switching (P/DAS) capability, of the IBM Enterprise Storage Server may require additional subchannel growth for improved performance and continuous availability.
The z800 supports 512K HSA subchannels, the maximum for all logical partitions (LPs) and up to 63K in basic mode and for each logical partition (LP) in LPAR mode.
Capacity Upgrade on Demand (CUoD): Improving on IBM's G6 CUoD capability, the z800 offers more flexible concurrent upgrades. If an installation projects that their present capacity would be satisfied by a small z800 model, but envisions growth to a larger model, CUoD allows concurrent upgrade capability. By planning ahead, your installation can react quickly to increased capacity demands.
While model upgrades to the processor itself are concurrent, your software may not be able to take advantage of the increased capacity without performing an Initial Program Load (IPL).
Network Connectivity 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) and Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) network, intended 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, ATM, 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 can be configured to utilize 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, ATM, and Token Ring features can also be configured to support non-QDIO environments, either TCP/IP passthru (LCS LAN Channel Station) or Systems Network Architecture/Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking®/High Performance Routing (SNA/APPN®/HPR) environments.
The software requirements for the OSA-Express features are dependent upon the operating mode and media type. Refer to the Software Requirements section of this announcement, or to the Open Systems Adapter-Express Customer's Guide and Reference (SA22-7476).
HiperSockets: The HiperSockets function provides "Network in the Box" functionality that allows high-speed any-to-any connectivity among OS images within a zSeries server without requiring any physical cabling. This "Network in the Box" concept minimizes network latency and is intended to maximize bandwidth capabilities between z/VM, Linux, and z/OS images (or among combinations of these) 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. These groupings are independent of sysplex affiliation.
Performance is drastically improved over the currently available OSA-Express Gigabit LPAR to LPAR latency, depending upon the workload characteristics. The z800 does a direct move from one LPAR's memory to another's memory using QDIO.
I/O CHPIDs Assignment: The ability to assign channel paths 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 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."
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.
Inter-System Channel (ISC-3), Integrated Cluster Bus (ICB-3), and Internal Coupling Channel (IC-3): To help ensure Sysplex environments continue to scale with today's efficiency as IBM zSeries performance grows, the zSeries coupling link design has been improved. To optimize z800 performance either between other IBM zSeries servers, or among S/390 Parallel Enterprise Servers, two modes of coupling links are now available: Peer Mode and Compatibility Mode.
z800 servers support a maximum of 24 ISC-3 links; five ICB-3 links on a general-purpose z800; or six ICB-3 links on the 0CF model. The z800 general-purpose models and 0CF model also allow the definition of up to 32 internal coupling (IC-3) links.
It is not possible to get the maximum ISC-3 (24) and ICB-3 (5 or 6) on the same machine. Following are examples of combinations that are possible:
64-bit Architecture (with z/OS): 64-bit architecture is intended to eliminate bottlenecks associated with lack of addressable memory by making the addressing capability nearly unlimited (up to a theoretical 16 exabytes; this limit compares to the prior capability of 2 Gbytes in S/390 systems). As an application's server capacity requirements grow, the requirement for greater addressability increases as well. As addressability begins to be constrained, the lack of real storage increases overhead and ultimately constrains system growth. This situation exacerbates critical situations in which explosive systems growth has been a result of successful e-business implementation.
IBM's zSeries 64-bit architecture is intended to:
64-bit Addressing Memory Constraint Relief: The z800 provides up to 32 GB memory and enables significant paging overhead reduction. 64-bit real addressing is intended to give immediate constraint relief to customers with real memory bottlenecks today. This is intended to benefit DB2®, Domino, TSO, and other UNIX®-based applications.
z800 Support for Linux: The zSeries Offering for Linux offers a comprehensive server environment for multiple Linux systems on a single z800 server. zSeries Offering for Linux is an easy-to-use, high-performance Linux Offering which has the capability to have one to four enabled engines.
The S/390 Integrated Facility for LINUX previously announced for 9672 Parallel Enterprise Servers, G5 and G6, and also for IBM z900 is also available on z800. This feature provides the ability for an independent processing capacity for Linux applications. An installation may purchase additional processing capacity, exclusively for Linux workloads, with no effect on the z800 model designation. No additional IBM operating system or middleware charges will be incurred due to the additional capacity unless the software is actually running in that additional capacity. The hardware feature is isolated from general use, is dedicated for Linux use only, and cannot run other IBM operating systems except z/VM Version 4.
IBM zSeries Fiber Cabling Service for the z800
IBM zSeries Fiber Cabling Service, available with the z800, is designed to provide you with:
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 is designed to deliver 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.
Additional service charges may be incurred during the machine installation if the above cabling tasks are not accomplished as directed.

Regardless of the choice made, the network switch settings must agree with those of the OSA Express Token Ring feature. If the LAN speed defaults to autosense, the OSA Express Token Ring feature will sense the speed of the attached switch and insert into the LAN at the appropriate speed. If the Token Ring feature is the first station on the LAN and the user specifies autosense, it will default to a speed of 16 Mbps and will attempt to open in full-duplex mode. If unsuccessful, it will default to half-duplex mode. The OSA Express Token Ring feature conforms to the IEEE 802.5 (ISO/IEC 8802.5) standard.
Fiber Quick Connect Delivers!
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 IBM 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 Single Connector-Dual Contact (SC-DC). 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 are 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.
