Abstract

This IBM Rockhopper II is a highly engineered system designed to protect the new business currency with speed and agility at scale.

The world is amidst a transformation to data as the new business currency. This change is having a profound effect on us as individuals, on how businesses are run, and on how business transactions are managed. In this ever-more-digital world, the new currency is data and the insights that data can provide. It is a world that requires ultimate trust in the data that businesses collect, create, and store.

As a natural evolution of the digital transformation, the complexity of the data value chain has also expanded. The expectations of consumers, suppliers, and business partners have grown. They demand security, transparency, and greater value in every interaction and transaction as this new currency is exchanged. Securing data from both internal and external threats is of utmost importance, yet only a portion of data is adequately protected today. Failure to secure such data has both financial and reputational consequences.

Digital experiences are no longer hosted entirely on premises through data centers but are delivered in combination with hybrid clouds. This is by design as businesses must be open and connected to drive innovation at speed. They must accelerate development and delivery of secure, scalable services to address new opportunities and challenges before a competitor steals the advantage.

IBM Rockhopper II is designed to provide highly securable data for businesses looking to thrive in a data-centric economy.

Designed as an entry point into LinuxONE, Rockhopper II is the newest member of the product portfolio, built on the same technology as Emperor II at a lower price point. Rockhopper II is available with up to 8 TB of memory and 30 Linux cores, running at 4.5 GHz, supporting hundreds of production and development virtual machines on a single footprint. Reviewing opportunities for consolidation of x86 sprawl is a key consideration, considering not only the hardware but the software licenses and overhead management required to keep things running smoothly.

Model abstract 3907-LR1

The LinuxONE Rockhopper II Model LR1 combines all the elements of reliability and security for client and administrator peace of mind, with the agility and flexibility needed to capitalize on today's exploding opportunities for data and data intelligence. In place of sprawling x86 server farms, the Rockhopper II streamlines the management of production and development environments, using easy provisioning via new functions, like the Dynamic Partition Manager for Linux and updates to Hardware Management Console (HMC) interfaces. The shared-everything architecture is key to the success of Rockhopper II flexibility, as it allows clients to quickly move between high and low volume transaction settings, and take advantage of seamless backup and recovery methods.

Collaborating closely with clients, the Rockhopper II is built on the same high-reliability technology base as Emperor II , while achieving a smaller footprint at a lower price point. Rockhopper II is easily integrated into a data center environment, with an industry-standard 19-inch rack footprint and a common power distribution unit (PDU) approach. Planning the installation of a new Rockhopper II to a data center is simplified over the initial Rockhopper release. For our clients, this new format translates to significant efficiency, and high-speed processing power packed into a footprint of just two data center tiles.

Security and encryption are also fundamentally applied to the base of the Rockhopper II via hardware-embedded encryption methods with no application changes needed. In addition, support of dm-crypt tools, Crypto Express 6S hardware, and management tools can address security regulations at multiple levels. Secure Service Container extensions will allow for customers to house their own applications within a container, reducing the stress and cost of trying to separately keep applications up to date on regulatory requirements. What this means to a client is that the base data and applications can be encrypted with no application changes, and clients can more comfortably address audit and regulation challenges, both today and tomorrow.

FICON Express16S+

With the introduction of FICON Express16S+, you now have additional growth opportunities.

FICON Express16S+ supports a link data rate of 16 gigabits per second (Gbps) and autonegotiation to 4 or 8 Gbps for synergy with existing switches, directors, and storage devices. The Rockhopper II helps you to prepare for an end-to-end 16 Gbps infrastructure to meet the lower latency and increased bandwidth demands of your applications.

Increased throughput for the FCP protocol: A FICON Express16S+ feature, when defined as CHPID type FCP, conforms to the Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) standard to support attachment of SCSI devices, to complement the classical storage attachment supported by FICON and zHPF channels. In laboratory measurements, using FICON Express16S+ in a z14 with the FCP protocol for small data transfer I/O operations, FICON Express16S+ operating at 16 Gbps achieved a maximum of 380,000 IOs/sec, compared to the maximum of 110,000 IOs/sec achieved with FICON Express16S operating at 16 Gbps. In laboratory measurements, using FICON Express16S+ in a z14 with the FCP protocol and FICON Express16S+ operating at 16 Gbps, FICON Express16S+ achieved a maximum throughput of 3200 MB/sec (reads + writes). This represents approximately a 25% increase in throughput. The actual throughput or performance 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, the storage configuration, and the workload processed.

Dynamic Partition Manager

Dynamic Partition Manager (DPM) provides simplified hardware and virtual infrastructure management, including partition lifecycle and integrated dynamic I/O management for Linux running in an LPAR, and under z/VM. Using DPM, an environment can be created, provisioned, and modified without disrupting running workloads, and monitored for troubleshooting. Previously, DPM only supported FCP storage. Enhancements to DPM provide support for FICON ECKD storage as well. Administrators can define, configure, provision, and manage both FCP and FICON ECKD storage in a simplified and consistent manner, without the need to understand underlying protocols during routine use. These enhancements include:

  • Support for autoconfiguration of devices to simplify Linux operating system installation, where Linux distribution installers exploit function
  • Secure FTP through HMC for booting and installing an operating system via FTP
  • Support for OSA-Express6S, FICON Express16S+, Crypto Express6S, and RoCE Express2 adapters

A CPC can be configured in either the Dynamic Partition Manager mode or PR/SM mode. The mode is enabled prior to the CPC power-on reset (POR). Dynamic Partition Manager mode requires two OSA-Express 1000BASE-T Ethernet features for primary and backup connectivity (OSA-Express6S 1000BASE-T Ethernet, #0426 or OSA-Express5S 1000BASE-T Ethernet, #0417), along with associated cabling (HW for DPM, #0016).

The IBM Secure Service Container

The IBM Secure Service Container is planned to be expanded to integrate with the IBM Cloud Private platform for hybrid and private cloud deployments on IBM Z and LinuxONE. Now clients can deploy containerized IBM Middleware applications as well as utilize common management tooling for deploying homegrown or other third party Docker and Kubernetes based applications.

IBM Secure Service Container is designed to support the deployment of software container technology without requiring application changes. This is especially useful considering the regulatory focus on protecting critical data from internal and external threats. Support features (#0103 and #0104) will ensure that Secure Service Container applications run smoothly, whether you have just one application type, or many.

The Secure Service Container consists of both a firmware framework and a software framework.

The following is an enhancement to the IBM Secure Service Container firmware framework:

  • Simplification - Dynamic Partition Manager support for dynamic resource management and creation of Secure Service Container LPARs without needing to re-IML.

The following are enhancements to the IBM Secure Service Container software framework:

  • Security
    • Help enable secure boot of appliance via system unique key smart card access such that the Secure Service Container or system administrator cannot utilize privileged credentials to see or access the key.
    • Runtime and tamper protection via BTRFS Filesystems for root and data volumes.
  • Appliance management
    • Support the addition of FCP (and ECKD) storage to different disk pools via the appliance UI.
    • Support network configurations managed by IPv4, IPv6, and VLAN configurations from the appliance UI.
    • Enable appliance updates including import from a prior, saved and exported configuration -- avoid losing configuration data (going back to a "Factory Install"--like state); particularly useful for blockchain, which typically utilizes many concurrently running instances.
    • Support different users and groups via Local LDAP server and UI management.
    • Support starting appliance installer from a running appliance without having to interface with the HMC.
  • Usability
    • Avoid appliance spoofs by ensuring that a trusted and uniquely signed instance of an appliance is booted only in one LPAR, not multiple LPARs.

z/VM support

  • With the PTF for APAR VM65942, z/VM 6.4 provides support that will enable guests to exploit functions supported by z/VM.
    • Support for Crypto Express6S: z/VM support for the new Crypto Express6S (CEX6S) adapter is included for both shared and dedicated guest use. As with the prior crypto adapter support, the CEX6S adapter can be configured as an accelerator or as an IBM Common Cryptographic Architecture (CCA) coprocessor for shared or dedicated use by z/Architecture guests. When the CEX6S adapter is configured as an IBM Enterprise Public-Key Cryptography Standards (PKCS) #11 (EP11) coprocessor, the domains on the adapter can be dedicated to z/Architecture guests, but not shared. With Crypto Express6S support and support for the new and enhanced CPACF functions, z/VM V6.4 and V7.1 provide the prerequisite encryption support to enable exploitation by guests in support of pervasive encryption.
    • Installing z/VM to Model LR1 : z/VM 6.4 can be installed directly on an IBM LinuxONE Rockhopper II Model LR1 server with an image obtained from IBM after August 25, 2017. The PTF for APAR VM65942 must be applied immediately after installing z/VM 6.4.
  • Support for OSA Express6S: With the PTF for APAR PI73016, the TCP/IP stack and the NETSTAT OSAINFO command are updated to support OSA-Express6S adapters.
  • Guest exploitation support for Guarded Storage during Java garbage collection: With APAR VM65987, z/VM V6.4 provides support for guest exploitation of the Guarded Storage Facility. This facility is designed to improve the performance of garbage-collection processing by Java8 SR5. Essentially, this function allows an area of storage to be identified as "do not disturb", and garbage collection will avoid that area until later. This new function significantly improves the user experience, reducing perceived hang or pause time during processing.
  • Encrypted paging support: With the PTF for APAR VM65993, z/VM 6.4 provides support for encrypted paging, in support of the IBM pervasive encryption philosophy of encrypting data in flight and at rest. Ciphering will occur as data moves between active memory and a paging volume owned by z/VM. Included in the support is the ability to dynamically control whether a running z/VM system is encrypting this data.
  • IBM Hardware Management Console (HMC) 2.14.0 security enhancements: Security features in the Hardware Management Console (HMC) 2.14.0 available with z14 include Multifactor Authentication, Enhanced Computing in support of NIST Standard 800-147B, Crypto Compliance Levels, FTP through HMC, SNMP/BCPii API Security Controls, Secure Console to Console Communication Enhancements, Remote Browser IP Address Limiting, and more.
  • Multifactor Authentication: The Hardware Management Console will now offer an optional control of Multifactor Authentication in addition to the userid/password controls provided today. If the Multifactor option is selected for a given user, that user will now be required to enter a second authentication factor using a TOTP (Time-based One-Time Password) defined by RFC 6238. RFC 6238 is implemented by freely available smartphone and web apps utilizing a secret key provided per HMC user.
  • HMC Mobile for Z and LinuxONE: iOS and Android mobile apps are available for the HMC 2.14.0 supporting LinuxONE, z14, z13, and z13s systems. HMC Mobile helps enable HMC users to monitor and manage systems from anywhere. The apps provide system and partition views, status monitoring, hardware messages, operating system messages, and the ability to receive push notifications from the HMC using the existing zRSF (z Systems Remote Support Facility) connection. HMC Mobile is disabled by default and, once enabled, provides a robust set of security controls. Administrators can restrict usage to specific HMC users and IP addresses, require the use of app passwords, enable multifactor authentication, restrict the app to read-only access, and more.
  • Firmware tamper detection: z14 will also offer an enhancement on the Support Element that provides notification if tampering with booting of firmware on the server (CPC) is detected. This enhancement is designed to meet the BIOS Protection Guidelines recommended and published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Special Publication 800-147B. If tampering is detected, the Support Element will issue a user alert via a warning or a lock of the Support Element, depending on the configuration. If "call home" support is enabled on the LinuxONE Hardware Management Console managing the Support Element, additional analysis of the Support Element will be performed and displayed by IBM Resource Link.

16U Reserved (#0617) Hardware Configuration Flexibility

For clients utilizing up to two PCIe+ drawers, there is a new option to hold 16U Reserved (#0617) space in the Model LR1 rack. This 16U of space in the frame can be populated by a client with other server elements such as switches, storage, or servers. These additional elements are beneficial when planning elements that will work together within a frame, while reducing the physical footprint required in a data center.

When the 16U Reserved feature is ordered, the Model LR1 order will provide additional power ports in redundant power distribution units (PDUs), along with weight ballast, cable management support brackets, and air flow fillers as appropriate. Clients should take care to evaluate requirements of the Installation Manual for Physical Planning (IMPP), as there are requirements regarding additional element weight, air flow, power draw, and certification status. Note that IBM would first complete installation of the Rockhopper II and turn it over to client operation, and then the additional elements could be added if the 16U Reserved (#0617) has been ordered. This new hardware configuration flexibility feature is perfect for clients who fit into smaller IO configurations and need the additional ease of a single-footprint approach.

Product positioning

Data has become the new global currency. The sheer volume of data is immense, fueled by the digital transformation of systems, services, and interconnected devices. Businesses must be able to manage, store, and protect this information, and, most importantly, use it for competitive advantage. This is creating the demand to apply intelligence and insight to the data to build new services wrapped for a customized user experience. From a user perspective, IT must create an environment where users have confidence that data is protected yet available from anywhere and any device. This ability to be fast and flexible in delivery of new services, with insight and security, will differentiate a business. The IBM Rockhopper II delivers unique capabilities to help with that differentiation.

The LinuxONE Rockhopper II Model LR1 combines all the elements of reliability and security for client and administrator peace of mind, with the agility and flexibility needed to capitalize on today's exploding opportunities for data and data intelligence. In place of sprawling x86 server farms, the Rockhopper II streamlines the management of production and development environments, using easy provisioning via new functions, like the Dynamic Partition Manager for Linux and updates to Hardware Management Console (HMC) interfaces. The shared-everything architecture is key to the success of Rockhopper II flexibility, as it allows clients to quickly move between high-and low-volume transaction settings, and take advantage of seamless backup and recovery methods.

Security and encryption are also fundamentally applied to the base of the Rockhopper II via hardware-embedded encryption methods, designed to require no application changes when deploying Docker and Kubernetes based applications. In addition, support of dm-crypt tools, Crypto Express6S hardware, and management tools can address security regulations at multiple levels. Building on our Blockchain experience, the new Secure Service Container extensions are designed to allow clients to house their own applications within a secure container, reducing the stress and cost of trying to separately keep applications up to date on regulatory requirements. What this means to a client is that the system is designed to allow base data and applications to be encrypted with no application changes, and can help address audit and regulation challenges, both today and tomorrow.

One motivator for security conversations around Rockhopper II are the regulatory changes being implemented in the EU. The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect May 2018 in all EU member countries and for companies outside of the EU that hold or process data for citizens of EU countries. This will be a new set of IT challenges where Rockhopper II can provide a holistic response.

Designed as an entry point into LinuxONE, Rockhopper II is the newest member of the product portfolio, built on the same technology as Emperor II at a lower price point. Rockhopper II is available with up to 8 TB of memory and 30 Linux cores, running at 4.5 GHz, supporting hundreds of production and development virtual machines on a single footprint. Reviewing opportunities for consolidation of x86 sprawl is key, considering not only the hardware but the software licenses and overhead management required to keep things running smoothly.

Collaborating closely with clients, the Rockhopper II is built on the same high-reliability technology base as Emperor II, while achieving a smaller footprint at a lower price point. Rockhopper II is easily integrated into a data center environment, with an industry-standard 19-inch rack footprint and a common power distribution unit (PDU) approach. Planning the installation of a new Rockhopper II to a data center is simplified over the initial Rockhopper release. For our clients, this new format translates to significant efficiency, and high-speed processing power packed into a footprint of just two data center tiles.

The design teams for Rockhopper II also focused on creating a seamless integration for languages, applications, and programs that may originate in a variety of different formats for various clients. From languages like Go, Python, or Scala to applications like Docker containers, or MongoDB, PostgreSQL, and MariaDB, the Rockhopper II can maximize a client's ability to quickly develop and deploy new applications.

Overall, the Rockhopper II is positioned for clients who value scalability and high-resiliency, and are able to imagine the benefits of consolidating varied workloads in order to open windows of opportunity to grow and flex.

Peripheral hardware and device attachments

IBM devices previously attached to IBM z114, z196, zBC12, zEC12, z13s, z13, and z14 servers are supported for attachment to IBM z14 channels, unless otherwise noted. The subject I/O devices must meet the FICON and Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) architectures to be supported. I/O devices that meet OEMI architecture requirements are supported only using an external converter. Prerequisite Engineering Change Levels may be required. For further detail, contact IBM service personnel.

While the IBM LinuxONE Rockhopper II supports devices as described above, IBM does not commit to provide support or service for an IBM device that has reached its End of Service effective date as announced by IBM.

Note: IBM cannot confirm the accuracy of performance, compatibility, or any other claims related to non-IBM products. Questions regarding the capabilities of non-IBM products should be addressed to the suppliers of those products.

Information on switches and directors qualified for IBM Z and LinuxONE FICON and FCP channels can be found in the Library section of Resource Link.
