  • Third-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors (formerly codenamed "Cooper Lake" or CPX6)
  • 14 nm process technology
  • Six DDR4 memory channels
  • 48 PCIe 3.0 I/O lanes
  • 1 MB L2 cache
  • 1.375 MB or more L3 cache per core
  • Six Intel Ultra Path Interconnect (UPI) links at 10.4 GT/s
  • Intel Hyper-Threading Technology
  • Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0
  • Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (AVX-512)
  • Vector Neural Network Instructions (VNNI)
  • Enhanced Deep Learning Boost (bfloat16)
  • Intel Speed Select support (SST-TF and SST-CP)
  • Intel Persistent Memory 200 Series support

The processors include a suffix letter in the processor model number:

Memory capacity of processors

Third-generation Xeon Scalable processors are limited to the amount of memory they can address, as follows:

  • Processors with an L suffix (eg 8360HL): Up to 4.5 TB per processor
  • Processors without an L suffix (eg 8360H): Up to 1.125 TB per processor

The calculation of the total memory per processor includes both the system memory DIMMs and the persistent memory modules installed in the server.

For example, these configurations do not require an L processor:

  • A configuration using 12x 64GB DIMMs per processor, which is a total of 768GB per processor
  • A configuration using 6x 64GB DIMMs + 6x 128GB PMem per processor, which is a total of 1.125TB per processor

For example, these configurations must have an L processor installed:

  • A configuration using 12x 128GB DIMMs per processor, which is a total of 1.5TB per processor
  • A configuration using 6x 32GB DIMMs + 6x 256GB PMem, which is a total of 1.6875TB per processor

* L3 cache is 1.375 MB per core for all processors except the Platinum 8356H which has 4.47 MB per core

Two-processor configurations

The SR860 V2 can be used with only two processors installed. Most core functions of the server (including the XClarity Controller) are connected to processors 1 and 2 as shown in the System architecture section.

With only two processors, the server has the following capabilities:

  • 24 memory DIMMs for a 3TB maximum
  • Up to 12 PMem modules
  • Slots 1-4 and 9-12 are not available
  • GPUs not supported
  • NVMe Switch Adapters not supported
  • Up to 8x NVMe drives
    • If the 3-slot riser is used for slots 5-7 (Riser 1), then NVMe drives are not supported

Some drive bay configurations require 4 processors. See the table in the Supported drive bay combinations section for details.

Memory options

The SR860 V2 uses Lenovo TruDDR4 memory and supports 12 DIMMs per processor, which corresponds to 48 DIMMs with four processors installed. Each processor has six memory channels with two DIMMs per channel. With 256 GB 3DS RDIMMs installed, a 4-socket server supports a total of 12 TB of system memory.

The SR860 V2 also supports Intel Optane Persistent Memory 200 Series, as described in the Persistent Memory section.

Memory operates at up to 3200 MHz at two DIMMs per channel, depending on the processor model selected. If the processor selected has a memory bus speed of 2666 MHz or 2933 MHz, then all DIMMs will operate at that speed.

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

Lenovo TruDDR4 memory uses the highest quality components that are sourced from Tier 1 DRAM suppliers and only memory that meets the strict requirements of Lenovo is selected. It is compatibility tested and tuned to maximize performance and reliability. From a service and support standpoint, Lenovo TruDDR4 memory automatically assumes the system warranty, and Lenovo provides service and support worldwide.

The following rules apply when selecting the memory configuration:

  • The server supports RDIMMs and 3DS RDIMMs; UDIMMs and LRDIMMs are not supported
  • Mixing RDIMMs and 3DS RDIMMs is not supported
  • Mixing 128GB and 256GB 3DS RDIMMs is not supported
  • Mixing x4 and x8 DIMMs is supported
  • If 128GB or 256GB 3DS DIMMs are selected, at most 24 front drive bays can be configured

For best performance, consider the following:

  • Populate memory DIMMs in quantities of 6 or 12 per processor, so that all memory channels are used.
  • Populate memory channels so they all have the same total memory capacity.
  • Ensure all memory controllers on a processor socket have the same DIMM configuration.
  • All processor sockets on the same physical server should have the same DIMM configuration.

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC
  • SDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs; look for "x4" in the DIMM description)
  • ADDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs)
  • Memory mirroring

Note: Memory sparing is not supported

If memory channel mirroring is used, then DIMMs must be installed in pairs or sets of three (minimum of one pair or set of three per processor), and all DIMMs in the pair or set of three must be identical in type and size. 50% of the installed capacity is available to the operating system. Memory rank sparing is not supported.

Persistent memory

The SR860 V2 server supports Intel Optane Persistent Memory 200 Series, a new class of memory and storage technology explicitly architected for data center usage. Persistent memory is an innovative technology that delivers a unique combination of affordable large memory capacity and persistence (non-volatility). It offers significantly lower latency than fetching data from SSDs, even NVMe SSDs, and offers higher capacities than system memory.

Persistent memory technology can help boost the performance of data-intensive applications such as SAP HANA. When data is stored closer to the processor on nonvolatile media, applications can see significant overall improvement in performance.

The following table lists the ordering information for the supported persistent memory modules.

The following are the requirements when installing persistent memory (PMem) modules:

  • Only App Direct Mode is supported. Memory Mode and Mixed Mode are not supported.
  • All processors that the SR860 V2 supports also support the PMem modules listed in the table below.
  • All PMem modules operate at 2666 MHz. Installed memory DIMMs will also operate at 2666 MHz.
  • All installed PMem modules must be the same size. Mixing PMem modules of different capacities is not supported.
  • Maximum 6 PMem modules per processor (install 1 in each memory channel).
  • For each memory channel with both a PMem module and a memory DIMM installed, the PMem module is installed in channel slot 1 (DIMM1, closer to the processor) and the DIMM is installed in channel slot 0 (DIMM0).
  • Both interleaved and non-interleaved modes are supported.
  • To maximize performance, balance all memory channels
  • Memory mirroring is not supported with PMem modules installed
  • At most 24x 2.5-inch drives can be installed when any PMem modules are installed. The lower backplanes (BP4, BP5 and BP6) must remain unpopulated.
  • Ambient temperature cannot exceed 30°C
  • Only the following operating systems support PMem modules in the SR860 V2:
    • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP2
    • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 Xen SP2

In App Direct Mode, only the combinations of RDIMMs and PMem modules listed in the following table are supported. A required RDIMM:PMem ratio of between 1:1 and 1:4 must be met.

Tip: 16GB DIMMs are not supported in App Direct Mode because they do not meet the required 1:4 ratio.

Internal storage

The SR860 V2 supports up to 48x 2.5-inch SAS/SATA drive bays, up to 24 of which can be NVMe or AnyBay drive bays instead. All 48x drive bays are hot-swap and all front-accessible. The server also supports internal M.2 drives (one or two, installed in an adapter), or rear-accessible hot-swap 7mm SSDs.

Note: M.2 and 7mm drive support is mutually exclusive, as they both use the same connectors.

In this section:

NVMe drive support

The SR860 V2 supports up to 24x NVMe drives to maximize storage performance.

  • Up to 16 NVMe drives with direct connections to the processors
    • No oversubscription (each x4 drive has a full x4 (4 lanes) connection to the processor)
    • 4 drives are connected to each processor for balanced performance
    • 16 NVMe drives precludes the use of the 3-slot riser (Slots 5-7). See I/O expansion options for details.
  • Up to 24 NVMe drives using direct connections plus NVMe switch adapters
    • No oversubscription (each x4 drive has a full x4 (4 lanes) connection to the processor)
    • Each 1610-8P switch adapter only has 4 drives attached (no oversubscription)

Riser 1 support with NVMe drives: The use of the 3-slot riser for Riser 1 is mutually exclusive with 8 of the onboard NVMe ports as they use the same connectors. See the System architecture and I/O expansion options sections for details.

The specifics of these configurations are covered in the Supported drive bay combinations and Controller selections sections.

The tables in those sections indicate the number of NVMe drives in each configuration plus the subscription ratio. The subscription ratio is the number of PCIe lanes from the processor compared to the number of lanes to the drives. A ratio of 1:1 means all drives get the full number of lanes they need to maximize drive performance (currently 4 lanes per drive). A ratio of 1:2 means each drive only gets the half the bandwidth from the processor.

In addition, the server supports two 7mm NVMe drives for use as boot drives. These two drives are connected via separate RAID controller connected to a single PCIe 3.0 x2 host interface. See the 7mm drives section for details.

Front drive bays

The front drive bay are configured using 8-bay backplanes. The three available backplanes are:

  • 8-bay 2.5-inch SAS/SATA backplane
  • 8-bay 2.5-inch AnyBay backplane
  • 8-bay 2.5-inch NVMe backplane

Tip: The SR860 V2 does not support 3.5-inch drive bays.

The locations of the backplanes is shown in the following figure.

Drive bay backplane
Figure 10. Backplanes

The server supports combinations of these drive backplanes as listed in the Supported drive bay combinations section.

Ordering information for the backplanes is listed in the following table.

Field upgrades: All front backplanes are available as part numbers for field upgrades along with require cable option kits, as described in the Field upgrades section below.

B8LM ThinkSystem 2U/4U 8x2.5" AnyBay Backplane 3
BCQM ThinkSystem 2U/4U 8x2.5" NVMe Backplane 3

Common backplanes: The AnyBay and NVMe backplanes listed in the above table use the same physical circuit board. Feature codes B8LM and BCQM use a backplane with eight bays where each bay has both a SAS/SATA connection and an NVMe connection. The difference is which connectors on the backplane are cabled: NVMe and SAS/SATA or just NVMe. Both feature codes use backplane SBB7A06906. 

Supported drive bay combinations

The following table shows the supported drive bay combinations - SAS/SATA, AnyBay or NVMe drives. The table lists the backplanes required for each drive bay combination.

Some configurations require 4 processors be installed. This is noted in the table.

The table also indicates whether the combination permits the use of the 3-slot riser in Riser 1 (slots 5-7). Those configurations that don't support the 3-slot riser have 16 or more AnyBay or NVMe drives, or are an upgrade path for 16 drives. Such configurations can use the 2-slot riser (slots 5 & 6) instead.

The choice of storage controller for each configuration is listed in the Controller selections section.

Field upgrades

The SR860 V2 is orderable without drive bays, allowing you to add a backplane, cabling and controllers as field upgrades. The server also supports upgrading some configurations by adding additional front drive bays, adapters, and cables.

Each row of the following table represents a supported upgrade path. Any other upgrades may not be supported.

Configuration numbering: The letters A-R in the first two columns match the configurations listed in the tables in the preceding sections.

To add drive bays you will need to order both drive backplanes and cable kits. Backplane kits do not include cables.

When adding drive bays, you will also need to add the appropriate storage controller(s). Consult the tables in the Controller selections section to determine what controller sections are supported and what additional controllers you will need. Controllers are described in the Controllers for internal storage section.

M.2 drives

The SR860 V2 supports one or two M.2 form-factor SATA or NVMe drives for use as an operating system boot solution or as additional storage. The M.2 drives install into an M.2 module which is mounted vertically in the server between the two upper riser cards as shown in Figure 6.

M.2 and 7mm drive support: The M.2 module and 7mm drive enclosure connect to the same ports on the system board. As a result, they are mutually exclusive.

There are three different M.2 modules supported, as listed in the following table.

Both feature codes generate the same physical adapter, and for field upgrades, the part number supports both NVMe and SAS/SATA.
† Support planned for December 2020

Configuration notes:

  • Supercap support limits the number of RAID adapters installable: As indicated in the table, the RAID 930 and RAID 940 adapters include and require a power module (supercap) to power the flash memory. The server supports up to 4 supercaps, installed in a dedicated holder adjacent to the top riser slots as shown in Figure 6. The number of supercaps supported also determines the maximum number of internal + external RAID 930/940 adapters that can be installed in the server.
  • Field upgrades: The RAID 930 and RAID 940 adapter part numbers include both the supercap and the supercap cable.
  • 7mm drive support: The storage adapters listed in the table below do not provide connectivity to the 7mm drive bays that are optionally available at the rear of the server. The 7mm drives have their own independent RAID controller. See the 7mm drives section for details.

The onboard SATA controller has the following features:

  • Controller integrated into the Intel processor
  • 6 Gbps SATA host interface
  • Supports up to 8 SATA drives
  • Supports RAID-0, 1, 5, 10 (Intel VROC SATA RAID, previously known as RSTe)
  • Supports JBOD
  • Supports HDDs and SSDs; can be mixed

The onboard NVMe support has the following features:

  • Controller integrated into the Intel processor
  • Supports up to 16 NVMe drives
  • Each drive has PCIe 3.0 x4 host interface
  • Supports JBOD - Intel and non-Intel NVMe SSDs - no license required
  • Supports RAID-0, 1, 5, 10 (Intel VROC NVMe RAID) - Intel NVMe SSDs only unless VROC Premium license is installed
  • VROC Premium also extends to any drives connected via an NVMe Switch Adapter

Virtualization support: When implementing VROC RAID (SATA or NVMe), the onboard SATA and NVMe ports do not support virtualization hypervisors such as VMware ESXi, Linux KVM, Xen, and Microsoft Hyper-V. Virtualization is supported on the SATA ports only in AHCI (non-RAID) mode.

Intel VROC (Virtual RAID on CPU) is a feature of the Intel processor that enables RAID support. There are two separate components of VROC:

  • Intel VROC SATA RAID, formerly known as Intel RSTe
  • Intel VROC NVMe RAID

By default, VROC NVMe RAID support is limited to use with only Intel-branded NVMe drives (feature B9X7). If you wish to enable RAID support for non-Intel NVMe SSDs, select the VROC Premium license either CTO using feature code B96G or part number 4L47A39164. VROC Premium is fulfilled as a Feature on Demand (FoD) license and is activated via the XCC management processor user interface.

Note: VROC Premium is only needed for non-Intel NVMe drives in a RAID configuration. You do not need the VROC Premium license upgrade under any of the following conditions:

  • If you have SATA drives connected to the onboard SATA ports, you do not need VROC Premium
  • If you have Intel NVMe drives connected to the onboard NVMe ports, you do not need VROC Premium
  • If you have non-Intel NVMe drives connected to the onboard NVMe ports, but you don’t want RAID support, you do not need VROC Premium

For specifications about the RAID adapters and HBAs supported by the SR860 V2, see the ThinkSystem RAID Adapter and HBA Comparison, available from:

I/O expansion options

The SR860 V2 has up to 14 PCIe 3.0 slots plus an OCP 3.0 slot reserved for an Ethernet adapter.

The following figure shows the locations of the PCIe slots.

SR860 V2 slot numbering
Figure 12. SR860 V2 slot numbering

Physically x16 slots: Many of the x8 slots in the server have a physical x16 connector. This means that the slot mechanically accepts an adapter that has the longer x16 edge connector. However since the slot is electrically x8, it only has eight PCIe lanes for data transfer and only has the performance of a x8 slot. If a x8 slot is physically x8, that means a x16 cannot physically be installed in the slot.

The slots are grouped on risers or directly on the system planar, as shown in the figure:

  • Riser 2 (x32 riser connection to Expansion Tray):
    • Slot 1: PCIe x8 FHFL (physically x16) (not present if slot 2 is PCIe x16) (connects to CPU 4)
    • Slot 2: PCIe x8 FHFL (physically x16) or PCIe x16 FHFL double-wide (CPU 4)
    • Slot 3: PCIe x8 FHFL (physically x16) (not present if slot 4 is PCIe x16) (CPU 4)
    • Slot 4: PCIe x8 FHFL (physically x16) or PCIe x16 FHFL double-wide (CPU 4)
  • Riser 1 (x16 riser slot on system planar with two additional x16 cabled connections):
    • Slot 5: PCIe x16 FHHL (CPU 2) or PCIe x8 FHHL with 2-slot riser (CPU 2)
    • Slot 6: PCIe x16 FHHL (CPU 1) or PCIe x8 FHHL with 2-slot riser (CPU 1)
    • Slot 7: PCIe x16 FHHL (not present if 2-slot riser is selected) (CPU 2)*
  • Slot 8: OCP 3.0 slot with PCIe x16 connection (CPU 2)
  • Riser 3 (x32 riser connection to Expansion Tray):
    • Slot 9: PCIe x8 FHFL (physically x16) (not present if slot 10 is PCIe x16) (CPU 3)
    • Slot 10: PCIe x8 FHFL (physically x16) or PCIe x16 FHFL double-wide (CPU 3)
    • Slot 11: PCIe x8 FHFL (physically x16) (not present if slot 12 is PCIe x16) (CPU 3)
    • Slot 12: PCIe x8 FHFL (physically x16) or PCIe x16 FHFL double-wide (CPU 3)
  • System planar slots:
    • Slot 13: PCIe x16 LP (CPU 1)
    • Slot 14: PCIe x8 LP (physically x8) (CPU 1)
    • Slot 15: PCIe x8 LP (physically x8) (CPU 1)

Riser 2 and Riser 3 support two different riser card selections:

  • 4x PCIe 3.0 x8 slots (physically x16) supporting single-wide GPUs and other FHFL adapters - Feature code BAW9
  • 2x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots supporting double-wide GPUs and other FHFL adapters - Feature code BAW8

Riser 1 supports two different riser card selections:

  • 3x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots, slots 5, 6, & 7, supporting FHHL adapters - Feature code BAW7. The connections of these slots is shown in the System architecture section:

The RAID 930-8e, like other RAID 930 and RAID 940 adapters, uses a flash power module (supercap) and the server supports up to four supercaps. The number of 930-8e RAID adapters supported is based on how many supercaps can be installed in the server. For example, if your configuration uses two RAID 930/940 adapters for internal storage, then you can only install two RAID 930-8e adapters, since there is only space for four supercaps total. 

For details about these adapters, see the relevant product guide:

Cooling

The server has eight 60 mm hot-swap fans at the front of the server and all eight fans are standard in all models. The server offers N+1 redundancy, meaning that one fan can fail and the server still operates normally.

In addition, each of the two upper riser cages has two integrated dual-rotor fans. The pair of fans offer rotor redundancy - a riser cage can tolerate a single rotor failure and continue to operate.

Each power supply also includes an integrated fan.

The eight front fans are installed in a 4U-high unit as shown in the following figure. The eight fans are installed in six modules in vertical bays which comprise of either 1 fan or 2 fans, depending on the location of the bay:

  • Fan modules 1, 3, 4 and 6: Contain 1 fan (bottom only; top bay remains open)
  • Fan modules 2 and 5: Contain 2 fans

SR860 V2 fan module numbering
Figure 13. SR860 V2 front system fans

When servicing the fan modules, you remove the modules from the top of the unit (hot-swap). In the case of fan modules 2 and 5, two fans are removed at the same time. Although the server supports N+1 redundancy (that is, supporting the failure of 1 fan while maintaining server operation), the server supports the removal of two fans for the time it takes to undertake a fan replacement: remove the module, replace the fan, reinsert the module.

The server supports two types of fan modules:

  • Standard fan modules: Bottom fan is a single-rotor fan, top fan is a dual-rotor fan
  • Performance fan modules: Both bottom and top fans are dual-rotor fans

Fan module types cannot be mixed. All six modules must be either all standard fan modules, or all performance fan modules.

Performance fan modules are required for certain configurations:

  • CPU > 165W TDP
  • CPU suffix is HL (large memory support)
  • 128GB or 256GB 3DS RDIMMs installed
  • Persistent Memory installed

The following table lists the CTO ordering information for the fan modules.
