Description
Bottom rule

Four processor features are now available on the BladeCenter HS22 (7809-H22):

  • Intel Xeon 4-core 2.53 GHz, 8 MB Cache, 1066 MHz (#8356)
  • Intel Xeon 4-core 2.80 GHz, 8 MB Cache, 1066 MHz (#8357)
  • Intel Xeon 6-core 2.40 GHz, 12 MB Cache, 1333 MHz (#8376)
  • Intel Xeon 4-core 3.06 GHz, 12 MB Cache, 1333 MHz (#8377)

Either one or two of the processor features can be selected. Processors must be of the same type, power level, and clock speed on each BladeCenter HS22. Mixing processors of different speeds, power levels, or cache sizes or upgrading the base processor is not supported.

Six memory features are now available on the BladeCenter HS22 (7809-H22):

  • 2 GB 1333 MHz DDR3, 1 Gb, VLP RDIMMs (#8215)
  • 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3, 1 Gb, VLP RDIMMs (#8216)
  • 8 GB 1066 MHz DDR3, 2 Gb, VLP RDIMMs (#8217)
  • 2 GB 1333 MHz DDR3, 1 Gb, VLP RDIMMs (#8702)
  • 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3, 1 Gb, VLP RDIMMs (#8704)
  • 8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3, 1 Gb, VLP RDIMMs (#8708)

Feature numbers 8215 and 8216 may not be used with processor feature numbers 8376 and 8377. All other processor and feature configurations are valid.

The BladeCenter HS22 blades contain 12 DIMM sockets. A maximum of 96 GB of system memory is supported by using an 8 GB DIMM of ECC DDR memory in each of the DIMM sockets. A minimum of two DIMMs per processor must be installed; DIMMs may be added singly after that. DIMMs must be installed in matched pairs for Mirror Mode.

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.
