Overview

Top rule

The POWER9 server family has several key hardware enhancements.

Mainstream 931 GB, 1.86 TB, 3.72 TB, and 7.44 TB capacity SSDs

New mainstream 931 GB, 1.86 TB, 3.72 TB, and 7.44 TB capacity SSDs are designed to provide a lower cost per terabyte of SSD storage in a space-efficient footprint. A 2.5-inch serial-attached SCSI (SAS) SSD is mounted on an SFF-3 carrier or tray for a POWER9 system unit or mounted on an SFF-2 for placement in an expansion drawer, such as the EXP24SX drawer, when attached to a POWER9 server. The drive is formatted to use 4224-byte (4k) sectors and does not support the 4k JBOD 4096-byte sector.

New 16 Gb memory DIMM options

The new 64 GB DDR4 memory DIMM (#EM7B ) is an RDIMM (1.2 V) that runs at 2666 MHz, and the 16 Gb DDR4 replaces the old 8 Gb memory DIMM with 64 GB.

The new 128 GB DDR4 memory DIMM (#EM7C ) is an RDIMM (1.2 V) that runs at 2666 MHz, and 16 Gb DDR4 replaces the old 8 Gb memory DIMM with 128 GB.

Support for a 900 W 110 V power supply on the Power S922 (9009-22G) server with a 1-core or 4-core processor

The AC Power Supply - 900 W (#EB2L) is already available for the Power S922 (9009-22G) when it is configured with a 4-core typical 2.8 to 3.8 GHz (max) POWER9 processor (#EP56) or with a 1-core typical 2.8 to 3.8 Ghz (max) POWER9 processor (#EP5Y).

POWER9 servers also support the following new I/O:

PCIe4 x8 NVMe Flash Adapter for AIX and Linux

The PCIe4 x8 NVMe Flash Adapter can be used in either a x8 or x16 PCIe slot in POWER9 systems and employs the Non-Volatile Memory Express® (NVMe) transport protocol. NVMe is a high-performance software interface that can read and write flash memory. Compared to an SAS or SATA SSD, the NVMe Flash adapter provides more read and write input/output operations per second (IOPS) and larger throughput (GB/sec).

PCIe4 x8 NVMe Flash Adapter for IBM i

The PCIe4 x8 NVMe Flash Adapter can be used in either a x8 or x16 PCIe slot in POWER9 systems and employs the NVMe transfer protocol. NVMe is a high-performance software interface that can read and write flash memory. Compared to an SAS or SATA SSD, the NVMe Flash adapter provides more read and write IOPS and larger throughput (GB/sec).

PCIe3 16 Gb 2-Port Optical Fibre Channel Adapter

The PCIe3 16 Gb 2-Port Optical Fibre Channel Adapter is a high-performance x8 short-form adapter, also known as a PCIe host bus adapter (HBA). The adapter provides two ports of 16 Gb FC capability using SR optics. Each port can provide up to 16 Gb of FC function simultaneously.

PCIe2 x8 2-Port USB 3.0 Adapter

The PCI2 x8 Low Profile 2-Port USB 3.0 Adapter provides support for USB devices. In applications that require the use of an USB extension cable for keyboards, one feature 4256 per port is required.

Mainstream 931 GB, 1.86 TB, 3.72 TB, and 7.44 TB capacity SSDs

The new mainstream 931 GB, 1.86 TB, 3.72 TB, and 7.44 TB capacity SSDs are designed to provide lower cost per terabyte of SSD storage in a space-efficient footprint. A 2.5-inch SAS SSD is mounted on an SFF-3 carrier or tray for a POWER9 system unit or mounted on an SFF-2 for placement in an expansion drawer, such as the EXP24SX drawer, when attached to a POWER9 server. The drive is formatted to use 4224-byte (4k) sectors and does not support the 4k JBOD 4096-byte sector. It also does not use the 512-byte or 528-byte (5xx) sector formatting.

When placed in POWER9 system units with SAS SFF-3 bays, the drive is run by the integrated SAS controller such as found in Power E950, L922, S914, S922, S924, H922, and H924 servers. When placed in the EXP24SX (SFF-2) storage enclosure, the drive is run by a PCIe3 SAS RAID adapter, such as features EJ0L, EJ14, EJ0J, EJ0M, EL3B, or EL59. These PCIe3 controllers support 4k drives on POWER9 or POWER8® servers. Earlier-generation SAS controllers don't support 4k drives.

When placed in an SSD array of one of these PCIe3 controllers, the array must be all mainstream SSDs or all nonmainstream SSDs. A SAS controller can currently run 4k and 5xx drives, but they must be in separate arrays. Drives in an array should be the same or similar capacity. Hard disk drives (HDDs) and SSDs can only be mixed in the same array when part of an Easy Tier® array (RAID 5TS, RAID 6T2, or RAID 10T2) provided by SAS RAID controllers, such as feature EJ0L, feature EJ14, or POWER9-integrated backplane controllers.

Like all SSDs, the performance of the 931 GB, 1.86 TB, 3.72 TB, and 7.44 TB mainstream SSDs are excellent compared to an HDD. Read performance is on par with higher write endurance SSDs, such as the enterprise SSDs. Write performance, when compared to enterprise SSDs, is somewhat slower but still more than 25 times that of a standard 15K HDD. As with any drive, either HDD or SSD, the number of drives is still a factor in achieving satisfactory performance, especially for IBM i.

These are mainstream drives and are not suitable for write-intensive workloads. Write-intensive workloads are those that write more to the drive each day than its rated capacity. Assuming a typical heavily random workload at about 3394 TB of writes to the drive, it will be at its maximum projected write capability. Writes past the drive's maximum write capacity will continue to work for some period of time, but much more slowly. A Predictive Failure Analysis message will indicate that it is time to replace the drive. If the predictive failure is ignored and writes continue to be sent to the drive, eventually the drive will be unable to accept write commands and will accept only read commands for a period of time. A failed write will result in a more serious error message indicating that the drive must be replaced.

The nature of the workload has a great impact on the maximum write capacity. For example, if a high percentage of more sequentially oriented writes is used instead of random writes, the maximum write capacity can be significantly larger. The user should occasionally check to see what percentage of the drive's write life remains and adjust the workload or drive assignment as it makes sense to do so. Checking is done by inspecting the SSD Mainstream Fuel Gauge. This capability is available through AIX, IBM i, and Linux. The query or command to view the information varies by operating system. Check the remaining life of the mainstream drives individually, even if all are in the same array.

The Drive Write Per Day (DWPD) rating is 1 and is calculated over a five-year period. See the following table for the approximate lifetime Total Bytes Written (TBW) supported by each drive capacity:

Drive capacity TBW in TB
931 GB 1,700
1.86 TB 3,399
3.72 TB 6,799
7.44 TB 13,601

To read the warranty and maintenance applicable to mainstream devices on POWER9 servers, see the Terms and Conditions section or IBM Knowledge Center for additional details.

Multiple feature codes are used to identify the proper mainstream SSD characteristics. Key characteristics are:

  • Multi-OS server for AIX, Linux or IBM i
  • SFF-3 or SFF-2 carrier or trays

POWER9 servers also support the following new I/O:

PCIe4 x8 NVMe Flash Adapter for AIX and Linux

The PCIe4 x8 TB NVMe Flash Adapter for AIX and Linux can be used in either a x8 or x16 PCIe slot in the POWER9 system. The adapter employs the NVMe transfer protocol, which when compared to a SAS or SATA SSD, provides more read and write IOPS and larger throughput (GB/sec).

The PCIe4 x8 TB NVMe Flash Adapter for AIX and Linux is available in the following capacity points:

The PCIe4 LP 1.6 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7A) and the PCIe4 1.6 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7B) are identical cards except that the tailstock bracket is different. The PCIe4 LP 1.6 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7A) fits a low-profile PCIe slot, and the PCIe4 1.6 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7B) fits a full-height PCIe slot. Both features with CCIN is 594A.

The PCIe4 LP 1.6 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7A) is available for Power E980, L922, S922, and H922 servers, and the PCIe4 1.6 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7B) is available for Power E950, S924, S914, and H924 servers. For a card with more memory capacity points, see feature EC7C or feature EC7D.

The PCIe4 LP 3.2 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7C) and the PCIe4 3.2 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7D) are identical cards except that the tailstock bracket is different. The PCIe4 LP 3.2 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7C) fits a low-profile PCIe slot, and PCIe4 3.2 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7D) fits a full-height PCIe slot. Both features with CCIN is 594B.

The PCIe4 LP 3.2 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7C) is available for Power E980, L922, S922, and H922 servers, and the PCIe4 3.2 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7D) is available for Power E950, S924, S914, and H924 servers. For a card with more memory capacity point, see feature EC7E or feature EC7F.

The PCIe4 LP 6.4 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7E) and the PCIe4 6.4 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7F) are identical cards except that the tailstock bracket is different. The PCIe4 LP 6.4 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7E) fits a low-profile PCIe slot, and the PCIe4 6.4 TB NVMe Flash Adapter (#EC7F) fits a full-height PCIe slot. Both features with CCIN is 594C.

Limitation: NVMe Flash adapters (#EC7B, #EC7D, and #EC7F) are not supported on a tower S914 (MTM 9009-41A or MTM 9009-41G) model configuration.

Note: NVMe Flash adapters (#EC7A, #EC7B, #EC7C, #EC7D, #EC7E, and #EC7F) can be used to meet minimum AIX and Linux SSD/HDD and backplane requirements.

The nature of the workload has a great impact on the maximum write capacity. If a high percentage of more sequentially oriented writes are used instead of random writes, the maximum write capacity will be larger. To extend the life of the device, the application that is using the device must convert small random writes to larger sequential writes. Writes past the adapter's maximum write capacity will continue to work for some period of time, but much more slowly. Whether the application uses sequential or random reads from the device does not affect the life of the device. A Predictive Failure Analysis message will indicate that it is time to replace the adapter if enabled by the system administrator. Clients are recommended to monitor the smart log through their operating system where the fuel gauge shows the percentage used.

IBM NVMe adapter failures will be replaced during the standard warranty and maintenance period for adapters that have not reached the maximum number of write cycles. Adapters that reach this limit may fail to operate according to specifications and must be replaced at the client's expense. Data protection is not implemented in the card; protection is provided by OS mirroring or software RAID wherever applicable.

Note: NVMe Flash adapters (#EC7A, #EC7B, #EC7C, #EC7D, #EC7E, and #EC7F) are not supported in the PCIe I/O drawer.

PCIe3 16 Gb 2-Port Optical FC Adapter

PCIe3 16 Gb 2-Port Optical FC Adapter is a high-performance 8x short-form adapter, also known as a PCIe HBA. The adapter provides two ports of 16 Gb FC capability using SR optics. Each port can provide up to 16 Gb FC function simultaneously.

Each port provides single initiator capability over a fiber link, or with N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV), multiple initiator capability is provided. The ports are SFP+ and include an optical SR transceiver. The ports have LC type connectors and utilize shortwave laser optics. The adapter operates at link speeds of 8 Gbps and 16 Gbps and will automatically negotiate to the highest speed possible.

The PCIe3 16 Gb 2-Port FC Adapter (#EN2A) and the PCIe3 LP 16 Gb 2-Port FC Adapter (#EN2B) are electronically identical except that the tailstock bracket is different. The PCIe3 LP 16 Gb 2-Port FC Adapter (#EN2B) fits a low-profile PCIe slot, and the PCIe3 16 Gb 2-Port FC Adapter (#EN2A) fits a full-height PCIe slot. Both features with CCIN is 579D.

The PCIe3 16 Gb 2-Port FC Adapter (#EN2A) is available for Power E980, E950, L922, S922, H922, S924, S914, and H924 servers, and the PCIe3 LP 16 Gb 2-Port FC Adapter (#EN2B) is available for Power E980, L922, S922, and H922 servers.

Each port has two LED indicators located on the bracket next to each connector. These LEDs communicate boot status and give a visual indication of the operating state. The LEDs have five defined states: solid on, solid off, slow blink, fast blink, and flashing. The slow blink rate is 1 Hz, the fast blink is 4 Hz, and the flashing refers to an irregular on and off transition that reflects test progress. The operator should observe the LED sequence for several seconds to ensure that the operating state is correctly identified.

Cables:

Cables are the responsibility of the client. Use multimode fiber-optic cables with shortwave lasers that adhere to the following specifications:

  • OM4 - multimode 50/125 micron fiber, 4700 MHz*km bandwidth with LC connectors o 4GFC: 0.5m - 400m o 8GFC: 0.5m - 190m o 16GFC: 0.5m - 125m o 32GFC: 0.5m - 100m
  • OM3 - multimode 50/125 micron fiber, 2000 MHz*km bandwidth with LC connectors o 4GFC: 0.5m - 380m o 8GFC: 0.5m - 150m o 16GFC: 0.5m - 100m o 32GFC: 0.5m - 70m
  • OM2 - multimode 50/125 micron fiber, 500 MHz*km bandwidth with LC connectors o 4GFC: 0.5m - 150m o 8GFC: 0.5m - 50m o 16GFC: 0.5m - 35m o 32GFC: 0.5m - 20m
  • OM1 - multimode 62.5/125 micron fiber, 200 MHz*km bandwidth with LC connectors o 4GFC: 0.5m - 70m o 8GFC: 0.5m - 21m o 16GFC: 0.5m - 15m o 32GFC: N/A

Note: The hardware cannot detect what length and type of cable is installed. The link will autonegotiate to the speed reported during negotiation by the targeted speed. The user must manually set the maximum negotiation speed. If too high a speed is selected, bit errors may occur.

There is an optional wrap plug feature (#ECW0), which is: a) Required to run some diagnostic procedures, and b) In some cases may speed system boot when placed in empty ports as well as avoid useless messages pointing to a planned empty port.

PCIe2 x8 2-Port USB 3.0 Adapter

The PCIe2 x8 2-Port USB 3.0 Adapter provides support for USB devices. In applications that require the use of a USB extension cable for keyboards, one feature 4256 adapter is required per port.

The PCIe2 LP 2-Port USB 3.0 Adapter (#EC6J) and the PCIe2 2-Port USB 3.0 Adapter (#EC6K) are electronically identical except that the tailstock bracket is different. The PCIe2 LP 2-Port USB 3.0 Adapter (#EC6J) fits a low-profile PCIe slot, and the PCIe2 2-Port USB 3.0 Adapter (#EC6K) fits a full-height PCIe slot. Both features with CCIN is 579D.
