Processor options

The SR850 supports Gold and Platinum level processors in the Intel Xeon Processor Scalable Family.

The server supports two or four processors.

  • Processors 1 and 2 are installed in sockets on the system board.
  • Processors 3 and 4 are installed on the Processor and Memory Expansion Tray.

The SR850 Processor and Memory Expansion Tray has a patent-pending sliding and rolling lift mechanism that requires only a one-handed operation to insert or remove from the server. It has a toolless design for superior usability, serviceability and reliability. 

SR850 Processor and Memory Expansion Tray
Figure 5. SR850 Processor and Memory Expansion Tray

The ordering information for the Processor and Memory Expansion Tray is shown in the following table.

Table 10. Processor and Memory Expansion Tray
Part number Feature code Description
7B27A03953 AUPY SR850 Processor and Memory Expansion Tray

The following processor quantities are supported:

  • Two processors, installed in sockets 1 and 2, without the Processor and Memory Expansion Tray
  • Four processors, installed in all four sockets

Note: Configurations of one or three processors are not supported.

The SR850 supports the Intel Xeon Processor Scalable Family options listed in the following table.

All supported processors have the following characteristics:

  • 14 nm process technology
  • Six DDR4 memory channels
  • 48 PCIe 3.0 I/O lanes
  • 1 MB L2 cache
  • 1.375 MB L3 cache per core (except where larger, as noted with ** in the table below)
  • Intel Hyper-Threading Technology
  • Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0
  • Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (AVX-512)
  • Intel Ultra Path Interconnect (UPI) links at 10.4 GT/s (replaces QPI)

With two processors installed, the two processors are connected together using one UPI link. With four processors installed, the processors are connected together using a ring topology, using two UPI links, one to each adjacent processor in the ring.

Processors with the T suffix have more robust thermal characteristics (higher T-case).

Memory options

The SR850 server supports TruDDR4 memory. TruDDR4 memory uses the highest-quality components sourced from Tier 1 DRAM suppliers and only memory that meets strict tolerances is selected. It is compatibility tested and tuned to maximize performance and reliability.

TruDDR4 memory has a unique signature programmed into the DIMM, which enables ThinkSystem servers to verify whether the memory installed is qualified and supported. From a service and support standpoint, TruDDR4 memory automatically assumes the system's warranty, and service and support provided worldwide.

The SR850 supports up to 12 DIMMs per processor, for a total of 48 DIMMs when four processors are installed. Each processor has six memory channels, and supports one or two DIMMs per channel.

All DIMMs can operate at a speed of 2666 MHz, both at 1 DIMM per channel and 2 DIMMs per channel. However, if the processor selected has a lower memory bus speed (eg 2400 MHz), then all DIMMs will operate at that lower speed.

The following table lists the memory options that are available for the SR850 server.

LRDIMMs
7X77A01305 AUNE ThinkSystem 64GB TruDDR4 2666 MHz (4Rx4 1.2V) LRDIMM 48 (12 per processor)

The following rules apply when selecting the memory configuration:

  • The server supports RDIMMs and LRDIMMs. Once available from Lenovo, 3DS RDIMMs will also be supported. UDIMMs are not supported.
  • Mixing RDIMMs and LRDIMMs is not supported.
  • Mixing 3DS RDIMMs with either RDIMMs or LRDIMMs is not supported.
  • Mixing x4 and x8 DIMMs is supported.
  • For best performance, populate memory DIMMs in quantities of 6 or 12 per processor, so that all memory channels are used.

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC
  • Chipkill (for x4-based memory DIMMs; look for "x4" in the DIMM description)
  • Memory channel mirroring
  • Memory rank sparing

If memory channel mirroring is used, then DIMMs must be installed in pairs (minimum of one pair per processor), and both DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type and size. 50% of the installed capacity is available to the operating system.

If memory rank sparing is used, then a minimum of one quad-rank DIMM or two single-rank or dual-rank DIMMs must be installed per populated channel (the DIMMs do not need to be identical). In rank sparing mode, one rank of a DIMM in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory. The largest rank in the channel will be automatically selected as the spare rank. The amount of memory available to the operating system depends on the number, capacity and rank counts of the DIMMs installed.

Internal storage

The server can support up to 16x 2.5-inch drives, SAS, SATA or NVMe, depending on the selected backplane configuration. You can mix drives in the same server, but not in the same array. Drives are all installed from the front of the server. The server also supports one or two M.2 drives, installed in an M.2 adapter.

In this section:

Backplanes and drive bays

The SR850 supports various internal storage configurations based on two different backplanes:

  • 8-drive SAS/SATA backplane for 8x 2.5-inch SAS or SATA drives
  • 8-drive SAS/SATA+AnyBay backplane for either:
    • 8x 2.5-inch SAS or SATA drives
    • 4x 2.5-inch SAS or SATA drives + 4x 2.5-inch U.2 (NVMe) drives

For configure-to-order (CTO) configurations, ordering information for the backplanes is in the following table.

Table 13. Backplane ordering
Part number Feature code Description
None* AUR5 ThinkSystem 2U 2.5" AnyBay 8-Bay Backplane Kit
None* AURA ThinkSystem 2U/Tower 2.5" SATA/SAS 8-Bay Backplane Kit

* Backplanes are configure-to-order (CTO) only; however, upgrade kits are available that include backplanes, as described in the Field upgrades section below.

Regular 2.5-inch SAS/SATA drive bays support only SAS or SATA drives, however the Lenovo AnyBay drive bay design allows a choice of SATA, SAS or NVMe drives. This design enables the flexibility to configure some of the bays with high-performance PCIe SSDs and still use the remaining bays for high-capacity HDDs, which is the ideal solution for storage tiering.

Backplane connections are as follows:

  • The 8-drive SAS/SATA backplane has two SAS/SATA connectors and connects to a supported RAID controller or SAS HBA.
  • The 8-drive SAS/SATA+AnyBay backplane has two SAS/SATA connectors and connects to a supported RAID controller or SAS HBA plus four PCIe connectors to connect to either two PCIe connectors on the Processor and Memory Expansion Tray (see Figure 4), or four PCIe connectors on a NVMe Switch adapter installed in a PCIe slot.

Five drive configurations are possible with these two backplanes:

  1. 8 drive bays, all SAS/SATA
  2. 8 drive bays, where 4 are AnyBay
  3. 16 drive bays, all SAS/SATA
  4. 16 drive bays, where 4 are AnyBay
  5. 16 drive bays, where 8 are AnyBay

These configurations are shown in the following figure.

Drive bay configurations
Figure 6. Drive bay configurations

Adapters and cabling

This section describes the adapter and cabling requirements for each of the five configurations. There are two aspects of the server configuration that determine what adapters are needed:

  • For configurations with two SAS/SATA backplanes, you can select either one 16-port SAS/SATA adapter or two 8-port SAS/SATA adapters
  • For AnyBay drive bays, cabling varies depending on whether the server has four processors and the Processor and Memory Expansion Tray (with its two NVMe connectors) installed. If the server has only two processors configured, then the NVMe ports are provided by a NVMe Switch adapter.

The five drive bay configurations are shown in the the subsections below. Where there are different adapter and cabling options, or for 2 or 4 processors, they are shown by the letters A, B, C, D. These configuration numbers are also later references in the Field upgrades section.

  1. 8x drive bays, all SAS/SATA
  2. 8x drive bays, where 4 are AnyBay
  3. 16x drive bays, all SAS/SATA
  4. 16x drive bays, where 4 are AnyBay
  5. 16x drive bays, where 8 are AnyBay

Tip: The adapters are described in detail in the Controllers for internal storage section.

1. 8 drive bays, all SAS/SATA

In this drive bay configuration, all eight drives are connected to one 8-port SAS/SATA RAID adapter or HBA using two backplane cables, as shown in the following figure.

Adapter and cabling for 8x drive bays, all SAS/SATA
Figure 7. Adapter and cabling for 8x drive bays, all SAS/SATA

2. 8 drive bays, where 4 are AnyBay

In 8-drive bay configurations where four of those drive bays are AnyBay drive bays, possible adapter and cabling configurations are shown in the following figure.

When only two processors are selected, a NVMe Switch Adapter is used to provide the four needed NVMe ports. When four processors are selected, the NVMe ports on the Processor and Memory Expansion Tray are used to connect to the NVMe connectors on the backplane.

In this configuration you can have up to eight SAS or SATA drives, or you can instead put up to four NVMe drives in the AnyBay drive bays, along with up to four SAS/SATA drives in the other drive bays.

Adapter and cabling for 8x drive bays, where 4 are AnyBay
Figure 8. Adapter and cabling for 8 drive bays, where 4 of the bays are AnyBay

3. 16 drive bays, all SAS/SATA

In 16-bay configurations where all 16 drive bays are SAS/SATA drives, you can use either two 8-port SAS/SATA RAID adapters or HBAs or one 16-port SAS/SATA RAID adapter or HBA. These choices are shown in the following figure.

Adapter and cabling for 16x drive bays, all SAS/SATA
Figure 9. Adapter and cabling for 16 drive bays, all SAS/SATA

4. 16 drive bays, where 4 are AnyBay

In 16-drive configurations where four of the bays are AnyBay drive bays, you can elect to have either one 16-port adapter or two 8-port adapters for SAS/SATA connectivity. In addition, the NVMe connectivity depends on whether you have two or four processors installed: for two-processor systems, an NVMe Switch Adapter is required; for four-processor systems, the onboard NVMe ports can be used. The configurations are shown in the following figure.

Adapter and cabling for 16x drive bays, where 4 are AnyBay
Figure 10. Adapter and cabling for 16 drive bays, where 4 of the bays are AnyBay

5. 16 drive bays, where 8 are AnyBay

In 16-drive configurations where eight of the bays are AnyBay drive bays, you can select either one 16-port adapter or two 8-port adapters for SAS/SATA connectivity. In addition, the NVMe connectivity depends on whether you have two or four processors installed: for two-processor systems, two NVMe Switch Adapters are required; for four-processor systems, the onboard NVMe ports is used for four of the AnyBay drive bays and and an NVMe Switch Adapter is needed for the other four AnyBay drive bays. The configurations are shown in the following figure.

M.2 drives

The server supports one or two M.2 form-factor SATA drives for use as an operating system boot solution. With two M.2 drives configured, the drives are configured by default as a RAID-1 mirrored pair for redundancy.

The M.2 drives install into an M.2 adapter which in turn is installed in a dedicated slot on the system board. See the internal view of the server in the Components and connectors section for the location of the M.2 slot.

There are two M.2 adapters supported, as listed in the following table.

Eight slots are on the system board and three (slots 3-5) are through a riser card. A riser card is standard on some models and optional on others. All slots are available with two processors.

The PCIe slots are as follows:

  • Slot 1: PCIe 3.0 x16 (low profile) (CPU 2)
  • Slot 2: PCIe 3.0 x8 (low profile) (CPU 2)
  • Slot 3-5: Riser card slots (see below) (CPU 2)
  • Slot 6: PCIe 2.0 x2 dedicated to M.2 adapter and drives
  • Slot 7: Dedicated to Ethernet LOM phy adapter (CPU 1)
  • Slot 8: PCIe 3.0 x8 (low profile) (CPU 1)
  • Slot 9: PCIe 3.0 x8 (low profile) (CPU 1)
  • Slot 10: PCIe 3.0 x8 (low profile) (CPU 1)
  • Slot 11: PCIe 3.0 x16 (low profile) (CPU 1)

Note: The slot labeled Slot 6 is for the M.2 adapter as described in the M.2 drives section.

Slots 3-5 are implemented using a riser card, and the SR850 supports three different riser cards as listed in the following table.

The following table lists the ordering information for the riser cards.

Network adapters

The SR850 has an integrated 10Gb Ethernet controller, based on the Intel Ethernet Connection X722. The X722 has the following features:

  • Integrated into the Intel PCH chipset
  • Supports 1GbE or 10GbE connections, depending on the selected LOM Phy adapter
  • Offers VXLAN/NVGRE hardware offloads
  • Supports VMDq and SR-IOV for advanced virtualization
  • Supports iWarp RDMA

To provide connectivity to the X722, the SR850 supports six different LOM (LAN on Motherboard) cards which provide the Ethernet PHY function. Only 1 LOM card can be installed. See Figure 3 for the location of the LOM slot.

The LOM card supports NC-SI to allow the network connection to be shared between the operating system and the XClarity Controller (XCC) management module (also known as IMM, short for integrated management module). The LOM also supports Wake-on-LAN (WOL).

For more information about the X722 controller, see the Lenovo Press product guide:
http://lenovopress.com/LP0654-intel-x722-integrated-controller

The following table lists the supported LOM cards.

Note: None of the LOM cards listed in the table support speeds lower than 1 Gbps.
