Key features

The challenge of a high-performance business is to do more with less—serve more Web pages, handle more secure connections, support more email users. You need to reduce the costs of doing business and improve the service you deliver to your customers while lowering your overall risk. The dual-socket IBM System x3650 M3 can reduce your costs with its new energy-smart design. It can improve service with reduced operational complexity and increased management functionality. It will lower your IT risk with the resiliency that comes from having no single point of failure. And like all IBM servers, the x3650 M3 offers you the trust that comes from IBM global reach, service, and support.

The x3650 M3 is a high-performance rack server that uses significantly less power than previous generations, with unified systems management tools, leading reliability, availability, and serviceability features, and broad system flexibility, housed in a compact 2U mechanical package.

Performance

The x3650 M3 offers numerous features to boost performance and reduce costs:

  • Up to two 6-core Xeon 5600 series processors offering superior performance. Xeon 5600 series processors offer up to 54% better performance than the previous generation 5500 series processors (workload dependent).
  • Eighteen DIMMs of registered 1333 MHz DDR3 ECC memory provide speed, high availability, and a memory capacity of up to 288 GB.
  • High-performance 6 Gbps SAS RAID controllers and 15K RPM 6 Gbps SAS disk drives in a variety of capacities to suit your local storage requirements.
  • The use of solid-state drives (SSDs) instead of or along with traditional spinning drives (HDDs) can significantly improve I/O performance. An SSD can support 20,000 I/O operations per second (IOPS) whereas a typical HDD handles fewer than 500 IOPS.

Flexibility and scalability

The x3650 M3 has the ability to grow with your application requirements with these features:

  • A choice of 4-core or 6-core processors with clock rates from 1.6 GHz to 3.6 GHz.
  • 18 DIMM sockets allowing memory expansion of up to 288 GB.
  • A choice of power supplies including 460 W, 675 W AC or DC, or energy-efficient 675 W.
  • Five or six USB 2.0 ports available - two front, two rear, one internal for an embedded hypervisor, plus one additional internal port when the optional Tape Enablement Kit is installed.
  • Storage bay flexibility: Up to 16 hot-swap 2.5" drive bays for SAS or SATA HDDs, or solid-state drives (intermixing supported); or eight 2.5" bays plus an internal tape drive bay.
  • Direct-attach SAS storage with the EXP2512, EXP2524, and EXP3000 storage enclosures is supported. IBM System Storage servers, including network-attached storage (NAS), and iSCSI or Fibre Channel-attached storage, can also be attached.
  • The x3650 M3 provides four PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 x8 I/O slots for increased network or storage connectivity.

Manageability and security

Powerful systems management features simplify local and remote management of the x3650 M3:

  • The x3650 M3 includes an Integrated Management Module (IMM) to monitor server availability, perform Predictive Failure Analysis, and trigger IBM Systems Director alerts.
  • An optional Virtual Media Key enables additional systems management capabilities, including web-based out-of-band remote control (keyboard video and mouse), remote optical drive support, Windows “blue screen” error capture, and support for LDAP and SSL protocols.
  • Text Console Redirection support allows the administrator to remotely view x3650 M3 text messages over Serial or LAN connections.
  • Integrated industry-standard Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) next-generation BIOS. New capabilities include:
    • Human readable event logs — no more beep codes
    • Complete out-of-band coverage by the Advance Settings Utility to simplify remote setup
    • A complete setup solution, allowing adapter configuration functions to be moved into UEFI
    • Consistent firmware management across an entire product line
  • Integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 support.
  • Industry-standard AES NI support for faster, stronger encryption.
  • Integrated IPMI 2.0 support alerts IBM Systems Director to anomalous environmental factors, such as voltage and thermal conditions. It also supports highly secure remote power control using data encryption.
  • IBM Systems Director is included for proactive systems management. IBM Systems Director comes with a portfolio of tools, including IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager, IBM Service and Support Manager, and others. IBM Systems Director also offers extended systems management tools for additional server management and increased availability. When a problem is encountered, IBM Systems Director can issue administrator alerts via email, pager, and other methods.
  • IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager provides advanced power management features with actual real-time energy monitoring, reporting, and capping features.

Availability and serviceability

The System x3650 M3 provides many features to simplify serviceability and increase system uptime:

  • The x3650 M3 servers offer Chipkill ECC memory protection (when using x4 DIMMs). Chipkill memory is up to 16 times better than standard ECC memory at correcting memory errors. This can help reduce downtime caused by memory errors.
  • The x3650 M3 offers memory mirroring for redundancy in the event of a non-correctable memory failure.
  • Toolless cover removal provides easy access to upgrades and serviceable parts, such as HDDs and memory. Similarly, the Virtual Media Key and the ServeRAID controller can be installed and replaced without tools. This means less time (and therefore less money) spent servicing the x3650 M3.
  • The server offers hot-swap and redundant fan modules and power supplies and hot-swap disk drives (redundant when implemented in conjunction with a RAID controller). These features mean greater system uptime.
  • Toolless slides ship with the server, together with a cable management arm (CMA), that allow the rack server to easily slide into place.
  • The drop-down light path diagnostics panel and individual light path LEDs quickly lead the technician to failed (or failing) components. This simplifies servicing, speeds up problem resolution, and helps improve system availability.
  • Solid-state drives (SSDs) offer 2.5 times the MTBF rate (2,500,000 hrs) of HDDs, for greater uptime.
  • The three-year (parts and labor) limited onsite warranty provides peace of mind and greater investment protection than a one-year warranty does.

Energy efficiency

The System x3650 M3 has an energy-efficient design with features including the following:

  • Low-voltage processors draw less energy and produce less waste heat than high-voltage processors, thus helping to reduce data center energy costs. Available 4-core Xeon 5600 series processors use only 40 W and 6-core processors consume as little as 60 W.
  • Optional solid-state drives (SSDs) use only 2 W of power per drive, compared to 9 - 10 W for 2.5-inch HDDs. This is as much as 80% less power than a 2.5-inch HDD would use, with a corresponding reduction in heat output that further improves the overall bottom line.
  • Support for 1.35 V low-voltage DDR3 memory DIMMs that consume 20% less energy.
  • Energy-efficient components, including low-voltage transistors and voltage regulator modules, and power supplies that are up to 90% efficient.
  • The x3650 M3 uses hexagonal ventilation holes in the chassis. Hexagonal holes can be grouped more densely than round holes, providing more efficient airflow through the system chassis. This ultimately results in reduced operational costs.
  • An altimeter works in conjunction with the IMM to govern fan rotation based on the readings that it delivers. This saves money under normal conditions because the fans do not have to spin at high speed.

Processor options

Features of the Intel Xeon 5600 processors used in the x3650 M3 include:

  • Intel QuickPath Technology (QPI), a platform architecture that provides high-speed (up to 25.6 GBps), and point-to-point connections both between processors and between processors and the I/O hub. Each processor has its own dedicated memory that it accesses directly through an Integrated Memory Controller. In cases where a processor needs to access the dedicated memory of another processor, it can do so through the high-speed QPI that links all the processors.
  • Turbo Boost Technology dynamically turns off unused processor cores and increases the clock speed of the cores in use. It will increase the frequency in steps of 133 MHz (to a maximum of three steps or 400 MHz) as long as the processors’ predetermined thermal and electrical requirements are still met. For example, with three cores active, a 2.26 GHz processor can run the cores at 2.4 GHz. With only one or two cores active, the same processor can run those cores at 2.53 GHz. All Xeon 5600 processors support Turbo Boost with the exception of L5609, E5607, E5606, and E5603.
  • Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, which boosts performance for multi-threaded applications by enabling simultaneous multi-threading within each processor core, up to two threads per core. Hyper-Threading reduces computational latency, thereby making optimal use of every clock cycle. All Xeon 5600 processors support Hyper-Threading Technology with the exception of L5609, E5607, E5606, and E5603.
  • Intelligent Power Capability powers individual processor elements on and off as needed, to reduce power draw.
  • Execute Disable Bit functionality can help prevent certain classes of malicious buffer overflow attacks when combined with a supporting operating system.
  • Intel Virtualization Technology integrates hardware-level virtualization hooks that allow operating system vendors to better utilize the hardware for virtualization workloads.

The x3650 M3 supports the processor options listed in the following table. The server supports up to two processors. This table shows which server models have each processor standard. If there is no corresponding where-used model for a particular processor then this processor is only available through CTO.

In the x3650 M3, two processors are standard and the server supports two maximum.

Memory options

IBM DDR3 memory is compatibility tested and tuned for optimal System x performance and throughput. IBM memory specifications are integrated into the light path diagnostics for immediate system performance feedback and optimum system uptime. From a service and support standpoint, IBM memory automatically assumes the IBM system warranty, and IBM provides service and support worldwide.

The IBM System x3650 M3 supports up to nine DDR3 DIMMs when one processor is installed and up to 18 DIMMs when two processors are installed. However, the maximum number of DIMMs is limited by the number of ranks in the DIMMs:

  • RDIMMs
    • Up to 18 single-rank RDIMMs (nine per processor) for a maximum of 72 GB (18x 4 GB)
    • Up to 18 dual-rank RDIMMs for a maximum of 288 GB (18x 16 GB)
    • Up to 12 quad-rank RDIMMs for a maximum of 192 GB (12x 16 GB)
  • UDIMMs
    • Up to 12 dual-rank UDIMMs for a maximum of 48 GB (12x 4 GB)

Each processor has three memory channels, and there are three DIMMs per channel. RDIMMs can be populated three per channel. However, UDIMMs can only be populated two DIMMs per channel. That is, you can have up to 18 RDIMMs installed in the server, but only up to 12 UDIMMs. Mixing UDIMMs and RDIMMs is not supported.

Maximum memory speed is limited by memory speed supported by the specific processor and by the number and type of DIMMs installed (whichever has a lower memory speed rating), as follows:

  • Intel Xeon 5600 series processors:
    • 1333 MHz when one or two single-rank or dual-rank RDIMMs per channel are installed or one UDIMM per channel is installed
    • 1066 MHz when one quad-rank RDIMM per channel is installed or two UDIMMs per channel are installed
    • 800 MHz when three single-rank or dual-rank RDIMMs or two quad-rank RDIMMs per channel are installed

The server supports both 1.5 V and 1.35 V DIMMs. Mixing 1.5 V and 1.35 V DIMMs in the same server is supported for Intel Xeon 5600 series processor-based systems, in such a case all DIMMs operate at 1.5 V. Intel Xeon 5500 series processor-based systems do not support 1.35 V DIMMs.

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC
  • ChipKill (for x4-based RDIMMs)
  • Memory mirroring
  • Memory sparing

If memory mirroring is used then DIMMs must be installed in pairs (minimum of one pair per each CPU), and both DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type and size. If Memory Sparing is used then DIMMs must be installed in sets of three, and all DIMMs in the same set must be identical in type and size. Memory sparing is only supported for Intel Xeon 5600 series processor-based systems.

Remote management

The server contains IBM Integrated Management Module (IMM), which provides advanced service-processor control, monitoring, and an alerting function. If an environmental condition exceeds a threshold or if a system component fails, the IMM lights LEDs to help you diagnose the problem, records the error in the event log, and alerts you to the problem. Optionally, the IMM also provides a virtual presence capability for remote server management capabilities.

The IMM provides remote server management through industry-standard interfaces:

  • Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) Version 2.0
  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Version 3
  • Common Information Model (CIM)
  • Web browser

The optional virtual media key is required to enable the remote presence and blue-screen capture features. The remote presence feature provides the following functions:

  • Remotely viewing video with graphics resolutions up to 1280x1024 at 75 Hz, regardless of the system state
  • Remotely accessing the server using the keyboard and mouse from a remote client
  • Mapping the CD or DVD drive, diskette drive, and USB flash drive on a remote client, and mapping ISO and diskette image files as virtual drives that are available for use by the server
  • Uploading a diskette image to the IMM memory and mapping it to the server as a virtual drive

The blue-screen capture feature captures the video display contents before the IMM restarts the server when the IMM detects an operating-system hang condition. A system administrator can use the blue-screen capture to assist in determining the cause of the hang condition.
