IBM pSeries p670 Server

IBM pSeries p670 Server Overview

POWER4+ processors with L3 cache
*Provide excellent system and application performance and high reliability for commercial applications in a small, efficient dual-processor chip
*Offer capacity to grow to 16 processors
Copper and SOI technology
*Improves processor performance and reliability while using less power and producing less heat to help conserve energy and help lower operational costs
High memory and I/O bandwidth
*Helps remove performance bottlenecks that can occur when fast processors must wait for data to be moved through the system
*Delivers increased memory bandwidth for the needs of HPC applications
Up to 256GB ECC Chipkill™ bit-steering memory
*Allows exploitation of 64-bit addressing for large database and HPC applications
*Provides growth options with outstanding throughput
*Significantly lowers number of memory failures that can cause system outages, thus increasing system availability
*Automatically activates memory spares when multiple memory errors are encountered
Capacity Upgrade on Demand
*Offers flexibility for cost-effectively and easily adding permanent processing and memory capacity to help meet workload growth—with minimal disruption
On/Off Capacity on Demand
*Provides temporary processor use to meet unexpected workload demands
Capacity BackUp
*Offers disaster recovery solution with low entry price
*Provides rapid deployment on demand in disaster situations
Book packaging
*Protects memory components against accidental disconnection and/or contamination
*Facilitates easier servicing
Logical partitioning
*Permits up to 16 UNIX or Linux servers to be consolidated on a single system, easing maintenance and administration
*Offers greater flexibility in using available capacity and dynamically matching resources to changing business requirements (requires AIX 5L v5.2)
Up to 80 PCI/PCI-X hot-plug/blind-swap adapter slots
*Provides growth options for significantly increased capacity
*Supports many commonly used adapters for increased availability at a lower cost
*Allows adapters to be added or removed without interrupting the system
Hot-swappable disk bays
*Provide greater system availability and smoother growth by allowing swapping or adding of disk drives without powering down the system
Built-in service processor
*Continuously monitors system operations and takes preventive or corrective action 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 because cooling fans and power supplies can be changed without interrupting
*Provide backup power and cooling if primary unit fails
Dynamic processor and PCI bus slot deallocation
*Automatically deallocates resources when impending failure is detected, so that applications 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 that user demands can be readily satisfied
