Memory

The ThinkAgile HX7821 Certified Nodes for SAP HANA support Lenovo TruDDR4 memory. TruDDR4 memory uses the highest-quality components sourced from Tier 1 DRAM suppliers and only memory that meets strict requirements is selected. It is compatibility tested and tuned to maximize performance and reliability.

The ThinkAgile HX7821 Certified Nodes for SAP HANA support 24 or 48 DIMMs with four processors, or 12 or 24 DIMMs with two processors. Each processor has six memory channels (two integrated memory controllers with three memory channels per memory controller), and there are two DIMMs per channel.

The following rules apply when selecting the memory configuration:

  • The certified node supports RDIMMs or 3DS RDIMMs with rated speeds of 2666 MHz or 2933 MHz.
  • The following memory capacities are supported by the certified node: 384 GB, 576 GB, 768 GB, 1.125 TB, 1.5 TB, 2.25 TB, 3 TB, 4.5 TB, and 6 TB.
  • In the configurations with other than 576 GB, 1.125 TB, 2.25 TB, or 4.5 TB of memory capacity, all DIMMs in the certified node must be of the same type, speed, rank, and capacity (the same part number or feature code).
  • In the configurations with 576 GB, 1.125 TB, 2.25 TB, or 4.5 TB of memory capacity, a combination of DIMMs with different capacities is used, and all DIMMs in the certified node must be of the same type and speed.
    Note: Mixing DIMMs of different speeds is allowed in the configurations with 2.25 TB or 4.5 TB of memory capacity, as shown in the Memory configurations selection options table.
  • All DIMMs in the certified node operate at the same speed, which is determined as the lowest value of:
    • DIMM rated speed (2666 MHz or 2933 MHz).
    • Memory speed supported by the specific processor (2666 MHz or 2933 MHz).
    • Memory speed for the selected quantity of DIMMs per channel:
      • One DIMM per channel (1 DPC): 2933 MHz.
      • Two DIMMs per channel (2 DPC)
        • Performance+ DIMMs: 2933 MHz.
        • Other supported DIMMs: 2666 MHz.
    Note: Maximum memory speed can be achieved when Max performance mode is enabled in UEFI.
  • Certified node configurations with more than 1 TB of memory capacity per socket require processors that support up to 2 TB (M-suffix) or 4.5 TB (L-suffix) per socket. Certified node configurations with more than 2 TB of memory capacity per socket require processors that support up to 4.5 TB per socket (L-suffix).

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC
  • SDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs)
  • ADDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs)
  • Patrol scrubbing
  • Demand scrubbing

The following table lists the supported memory configurations that are available for selection.

  • YourDrive YourData

    Lenovo’s YourDrive YourData service is a multi-drive retention offering that ensures that customer's data is always under their control, regardless of the number of drives that are installed in their Lenovo server. In the unlikely event of a drive failure, customers retain possession of their drive while Lenovo replaces the failed drive part. Customer's data stays safely on customer premises, in their hands. The YourDrive YourData service can be purchased in convenient bundles with Foundation, Essential, or Advanced services.

  • Health Check

    Having a trusted partner who can perform regular and detailed health checks is central to maintaining efficiency and ensuring that customer systems and business are always running at their best. Health Check supports Lenovo-branded server, storage, and networking devices, as well as select Lenovo-supported products from other vendors that are sold by Lenovo or a Lenovo-Authorized Reseller.

Some regions might have different warranty terms and conditions than the standard warranty. This is due to local business practices or laws in the specific region. Local service teams can assist in explaining region-specific terms when needed. Examples of region-specific warranty terms are second or longer business day parts delivery or parts-only base warranty.

If warranty terms and conditions include onsite labor for repair or replacement of parts, Lenovo will dispatch a service technician to the customer site to perform the replacement. Onsite labor under base warranty is limited to labor for replacement of parts that have been determined to be field-replaceable units (FRUs). Parts that are determined to be customer-replaceable units (CRUs) do not include onsite labor under base warranty.

If warranty terms include parts-only base warranty, Lenovo is responsible for delivering only replacement parts that are under base warranty (including FRUs) that will be sent to a requested location for self-service. Parts-only service does not include a service technician being dispatched onsite. Parts must be changed at customer’s own cost and labor and defective parts must be returned following the instructions supplied with the spare parts.

Lenovo support services are region-specific. Not all support services are available in every region. For information about Lenovo support services that are available in a specific region, refer to the following resources:

For service definitions, region-specific details, and service limitations, refer to the following documents:
