Introduction

The NeXtScale Water Cool Technology (WCT) system is the next generation of dense computing. It is an open, flexible, and simple data center solution for users of technical computing, grid deployments, analytics workloads, and large-scale cloud and virtualization infrastructures.

The NeXtScale n1200 WCT enclosure and NeXtScale nx360 M5 WCT server are designed to optimize density and performance within typical data center infrastructure limits. The 6U NeXtScale n1200 WCT enclosure fits in a standard 19-inch rack and up to 12 nx360 M5 WCT servers, on 6 WCT compute trays, can be installed into the enclosure. The nx360 M5 WCT is now based on Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processors.

The NeXtScale Water Cool Technology solution is designed to operate by using warm water, up to 45°C (113°F). Chillers are not needed for most customers, meaning even greater savings and a lower total cost of ownership (TCO).

The NeXtScale nx360 M5 WCT server is shown in the following figure.

Did you know?

The nx360 M5 WCT server and n1200 WCT enclosure with direct water cooling provide the ultimate in data center cooling efficiencies and performance. You can obtain upwards of 40% energy savings in data center expenses with the reduced need for air conditioning and air chillers. Direct water cooling means that the processors installed in the servers can enable the Intel Turbo Boost performance feature more often to further increase processor performance.

Key features

NeXtScale System M5 Water Cool Technology (WCT) offering is a dense platform from Lenovo that achieves maximum performance with innovative warm-water cooling functionality. The NeXtScale WCT system includes a dense chassis, two half wide compute nodes on the WCT Compute Tray, all fitting in a standard rack. With NeXtScale WCT, Lenovo drives increased compute density, performance, and cooling efficiency for High Performance Computing and other workloads that require dense compute performance, such as Cloud, Grid, and Analytics.

Perhaps the most notable feature of WCT products is direct water cooling. Direct water cooling is achieved by circulating the cooling water directly through cold plates that contact the CPU thermal case, DIMMs, and other high-heat-producing components in the server.

One of the main advantages of direct water cooling is the water can be relatively warm and still be very effective, as water conducts heat much more effectively than air. Depending on the server configuration, 85 - 90% of the heat is removed by water cooling; the rest can easily be managed by a standard computer room air conditioner. With allowable inlet temperatures for the water being as high as 45°C (113°F), in many cases the water can be cooled by using ambient air and chilled water and a heat exchanger is not required.

The rear view of the nx360 M5 WCT with Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 processors is shown in the following figure.

Designed to industry-standards, NeXtScale Systems are general-purpose platforms that are designed to give customers a flexible IT infrastructure. Customized solutions can be configured to provide an application-appropriate platform with a choice of servers, networking switches, adapters, and racks.

NeXtScale nx360 M5 WCT servers provide a dense, flexible solution with a low TCO. The half-wide, dual-socket NeXtScale nx360 M5 server is designed for data centers that require high performance but are constrained by floor space. By taking up less physical space in the data center, the NeXtScale server enhances density and supports the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 series up to 145 W and 22-core processors, thus providing more performance per server. The nx360 M5 compute node contains only essential components in the base architecture to provide a cost-optimized platform.

The NeXtScale n1200 WCT Enclosure is an efficient, 6U, 12-node chassis with no built-in networking or switching capabilities; therefore, it requires no chassis-level management. Sensibly designed to provide shared, high-efficiency power and cooling for housed servers, the n1200 WCT enclosure is designed to scale with your business needs.

Scalability and performance

The NeXtScale n1200 WCT chassis and the NeXtScale nx360 M5 WCT server offer the following features to boost performance, improve scalability, and reduce costs:

  • Up to 12 compute nodes, each with two of the latest Xeon v4 processors, 16 DIMMs, and three PCIe slots, in 6U of rack space. It is a highly dense, scalable, and price-optimized offering.
  • The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family improves productivity by offering superior system performance with 22-core processors, core speeds up to 3.5 GHz, L3 cache sizes up to 55 MB, DDR4 memory speeds up to 2400 MHz, and QPI interconnect links of up to 9.6 GTps.
  • Two processors, up to 44 cores, and 88 threads maximize the concurrent execution of multi-threaded applications.
  • Intelligent and adaptive system performance with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 allows CPU cores to run at maximum speeds during peak workloads by temporarily going beyond processor TDP.
  • By providing better cooling than possible with air cooling, WTC servers optimize Turbo Boost 2.0 enablement. With water cooling, it may be possible to operate the processors in continuous Turbo mode.
  • Intel Hyper-Threading Technology boosts performance for multi-threaded applications by enabling simultaneous multi-threading within each processor core, up to two threads per core.
  • Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (AVX2) doubles the number of floating-point operations per second (FLOPS) per clock cycle, enables 256 bit integer operation, and provides more instructions to improve performance for compute-intensive technical and scientific applications.
  • A total of 16 DIMMs of registered 2400 MHz DDR4 ECC memory provide speed, high availability, and a memory capacity of up to 512 GB.
  • Two useable PCIe slots internal to the nx360 M5, a full-height half-length x16 PCIe Gen 3 slot and a mezzanine LOM Generation 2 (ML2) slot, which is also x16 PCIe Gen 3.
  • Two useable PCIe slots internal to the nx360 M5, a full-height half-length x16 PCIe Gen 3 slot and a mezzanine LOM Generation 2 (ML2) slot, which is also x16 PCIe Gen 3. These can be used for EDR InfiniBand or Intel’s new Omni-Path Architecture (OPA) fabric, delivering ultra-high performance connectivity.
  • Supports mezzanine LOM Generation 2 (ML2) cards for 40 Gb Ethernet and FDR InfiniBand that offer network performance in the smallest footprint.
  • PCI Express 3.0 I/O expansion capabilities almost double (1.97x) the useable lane bandwidth compared with PCI Express 2.0.
  • With Intel Integrated I/O Technology, the PCI Express 3.0 controller is integrated into the Intel Xeon processor E5 family, which reduces I/O latency and increases overall system performance.

Manageability and security

The following powerful systems management features simplify local and remote management of the nx360 M5 WCT:

  • The server includes an Integrated Management Module II (IMM2) to monitor server availability and perform remote management.
  • The first standard 1 Gbps Ethernet port can be shared between the operating system and IMM2 for remote management or can be dedicated to the IMM2. The second standard Ethernet port provides 1 Gbps Ethernet connectivity.
  • IMM2 functionality can be enhanced with optional Features on Demand upgrades. The first upgrade enables a browser based interface; the second upgrade adds remote console and media functionality.
  • An integrated industry-standard Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) enables improved setup, configuration, and updates and simplifies error handling.
  • Integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 support enables advanced cryptographic functions, such as digital signatures and remote attestation.
  • Intel Trusted Execution Technology provides enhanced security through hardware-based resistance to malicious software attacks, which allows the application to run in its own isolated space that is protected from all other software that is running on a system.
  • The Intel Execute Disable Bit function can prevent certain classes of malicious buffer overflow attacks when combined with a supporting operating system.
  • The n1200 WCT chassis includes drip sensors that monitor the inlet and outlet manifold quick connect couplers; leaks are reported via the Fan and Power Controller (FPC).

Energy efficiency

NeXtScale System offers the following energy efficiency features to save energy, reduce operational costs, increase energy availability, and contribute to a green environment:

  • Water cooling eliminates power that is drawn by cooling fans in the chassis and dramatically reduces the required air movement in the server room, which also saves power. Savings as much as 40% are possible in the data center due to the reduced need for air conditioning.
  • Water chillers may not be required with a WCT solution. Chillers are a major expense for most geographies and can be reduced or even eliminated because the water temperature can now be 45°C instead of 18°C in an air-cooled environment.

  • 85-90% heat recovery is possible with the WCT design. Heat energy absorbed may be reused for heating buildings in the winter for further operating expense savings.

  • The processors and other microelectronics are run at lower temperatures because they are water cooled, which uses less power.
  • Support is available for S3 standby power states in the processor.
  • Shared 80 Plus Platinum power supplies ensure energy efficiency.
  • The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family offers better performance over the previous generation while fitting into the similar TDP limits. These processors have their voltage regulators in the processor die (as opposed to externally); therefore, although the TDP numbers increased as compared to the v3 products, overall system power consumption is reduced.
  • Intel Intelligent Power Capability can power on and off individual processor elements as needed to reduce power draw.
  • Low-voltage Intel Xeon processors draw less energy to satisfy the demands of power and thermally constrained data centers and telecommunication environments.
  • Low-voltage 1.2 V DDR4 memory DIMMs use up to 20% less energy, compared to 1.35 V DDR3 DIMMs.
  • There are power monitoring and power capping capabilities through the FPC in the chassis

Availability and serviceability

NeXtScale n1200 WCT chassis and the nx360 M5 WCT server provide the following features to simplify serviceability and increase system uptime:

  • The NeXtScale n1200 chassis supports N+N and N+1 power policies for its six power supplies, which means greater system uptime.
  • The power supplies are hot-swappable.
  • Toolless cover removal provides easy access to upgrades and serviceable parts, such as adapters and memory.
  • Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA) detects when system components (processors, memory, and PCI devices) operate outside of standard thresholds and generates proactive alerts in advance of possible failure, which increases uptime.
  • The built-in IMM2 continuously monitors system parameters, triggers alerts, and performs recovering actions if there are failures to minimize downtime.
  • The IMM2 offers optional remote management capability and can enable remote keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM) control and remote media for the server.
  • There is a three-year customer replaceable unit and onsite limited warranty, with next business day 9x5 coverage. Optional warranty upgrades and extensions are available.
  • With water cooling, system fans are not required; only small power supply fans operate. This results in significantly reduced noise levels on the data center floor, a significant benefit to personnel having to work on site.
