IBM pSeries p630-6C4 Server

IBM pSeries p630-6C4 Server Overview

Up to four POWER4+ microprocessors with L3 cache
*Provide improved system performance and higher reliability for commercial applications in a smaller, more efficient package ("SMP-on-a-chip")
*Enables flexible growth in computing power
Copper and SOI technology
*Improve processor performance and reliability while using less power and producing less heat to help conserve energy
High memory and I/O bandwidth
*Remove performance bottlenecks that can occur when fast processors must wait for data to be moved through the system—particularly important for HPC applications
Space-saving deskside or rack-mount
*Allows greater flexibility in deployment in high-density environments
*Fits beside and under desks saving valuable floor space (deskside)
Up to 32GB memory
*Allows exploitation of 64-bit addressing for departmental database or HPC applications
*Provides growth options for much greater throughput
Chipkill™ ECC, bit-steering memory
*Significantly helps to lower number of memory failures that cause system outages, thus increasing system availability
*Provides memory spares to be activated when multiple memory errors are encountered
Processor card packaging
*Protects components against accidental disconnection and/or contamination
*Allows for easier servicing
Front-mounted serial port
*Offers convenient connection of handheld devices for easy systems management
Wireless systems management
*Allows remote personnel to perform system maintenance and monitor performance
*Enables server farms to be managed more easily
*Permits multiple applications to be consolidated on a single server, reducing the number of systems to manage and maintain
*Offers greater flexibility in using available capacity and dynamically matching resources to changing business needs (requires AIX 5L v5.2)
Six hot-plug PCI-X adapter slots
*Provide growth options for increased capacity
*Support many commonly used adapters for increased availability at lower cost
*Allow adapters to be added or removed without interrupting the system
Hot-swappable disk bays
*Provide greater system availability and smooth growth by allowing swapping or adding disk drives without powering down the system
Built-in service processor
*Continuously monitors system operations and takes preventive or corrective actions for quick problem resolution and high system availability
*Allows diagnostics and maintenance to be performed remotely
Redundant hot-plug power and cooling subsystems
*Enhance system availability since cooling fans and power supplies can be changed without interrupting operations
*Provide backup power and cooling if primary unit fails
NEBS Level 3 compliance (Model 6C4)
*Offers rugged packaging and optional DC power required for telecommunications central office operations and other harsh computing environments
Dynamic processor and PCI-X bus slot deallocation
*Designed to automatically deallocate resources when impending failure is detected so applications can continue to run uninterrupted
IBM eServer Cluster 1600
*Provides centralized management of multiple interconnected systems
*Provides ability to handle unexpected workload peaks by sharing resources
*Allows for more granular growth so user demands can be readily satisfied
