IBM pSeries p680 Server

IBM pSeries p680 Server Overview

600MHz RS64 IV microprocessors
*Greatly expand performance levels for SMP commercial applications
* Provide capacity to grow to 24 processors
Copper and SOI technology
*Provide significant performance increases over non-copper technologies
* Offer improved reliability over processors without copper while reducing the heat produced
16MB ECC L2 cache per processor
*Provides increased performance and greater reliability
Up to 96GB ECC Chipkill™ memory
*Allows exploitation of 64-bit addressing for large database applications
* Provides growth options with much greater throughput
*Significantly lowers number of memory failures that cause system outages; thus increasing system availability
64-bit system architecture
*Improves physical memory use for applications requiring faster access to large amounts of data
Up to 56 PCI adapter slots
*Provide growth options for significantly increased capacity
*Support many commonly used adapters for increased availability at lower cost
Hot-swappable disk bays
*Provide greater system availability and smooth growth by allowing swapping or adding of disk drives without powering down the system
Redundant hot-plug power and cooling subsystems
*Enhance system availability since cooling fans or power supplies can be changed without interrupting operations
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
Dynamic Processor Deallocation
*Automatically deallocates resources when impending processor failures are detected so applications can continue to run uninterrupted
Concurrent 32-and 64-bit application support
*Allows customers to migrate to 64-bit applications at their own pace
*Protects customers' 32—bit software investments while allowing them to participate in technology enhancements
Capacity Upgrade on Demand
*Allows incremental processor growth to help meet unexpected workload demands
SP™ Switch attachment
*Allows attachment to a high-speed SP Switch providing consolidation and operational advantages in a cluster environment
IBM eServer Cluster 1600
*Provides centralized management of multiple systems
*Provides ability to handle unexpected workload peaks by sharing resources
*Allows for more granular growth so user demands can be readily satisfied
