Introduction

The x3850 X5 server is the fifth generation of the Enterprise X-Architecture, delivering innovation with enhanced reliability and availability features to enable optimal performance for databases, enterprise applications, and virtualized environments. Environments that run around the clock to supply information world-wide require dependable servers with features that can tolerate a component failure without total shutdown.

The x3850 X5 server packs numerous fault-tolerant and high-availability features into a high-density, rack-optimized package that helps to significantly reduce the space needed to support massive network computing operations. A single x3850 X5 supports up to four of the new Intel Xeon E7 high-performance 10-core processors and up to 3 TB of memory. Two x3850 X5 servers can be connected together to form a single-system image with up to eight processors and up to 6 TB of RAM. This processing capacity is ideal for large-scale database or virtualization requirements. Figure 1 shows the System x3850 X5.

Did you know?

The x3850 X5 is an ideal server for enterprise database and virtualization workloads. The x3850 X5 held #1 scores in five industry-standard benchmarks. This included a four-socket TPC-C (database benchmark) result of over 2.3 million transactions per minute (27% better than the closest HP result at the time) and world record TPC-H (business intelligence) price performance result.

Key features

The x3850 X5 is a mission-critical 4U four-socket server, capable of expanding to up to 8 processor sockets and 6 TB of memory in 10U of rack space. It offering outstanding performance, and superior reliability and fault-tolerant memory characteristics.

Lenovo eX5 technology represents the fifth generation of enterprise servers based on the same design principle that began with in 1997: to offer systems that are expandable, offer “big iron” reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features, with extremely competitive price/performance on an Intel Xeon processor-based system.

Scalability and performance

The x3850 X5 offers numerous features to boost performance, improve scalability, and reduce costs:

  • The x3850 X5 supports up to four high-performance Intel Xeon E7 family allowing you to upgrade as business needs require.
  • Scalable to eight processors by connecting two x3850 X5 servers together to form a single system image.
  • Each x3850 X5 scalable to 2 TB of memory internally or 3 TB of memory with the addition of the MAX5 V2 memory expansion unit. With two x3850 X5 servers each with MAX5 units, the total available system memory is up to 6 TB.
  • Supports the Intel Xeon E7-2800, E7-4800 and E7-8800 families of high performance processors, up to 10 cores each, offering superior system performance
  • Intel Turbo Boost Technology dynamically turns off unused processor cores and increases the clock speed of the cores in use, by up to three model frequencies. For example, with 7-10 cores active, a 2.4 GHz E7-2870 10-core processor can run the cores at up to 2.53 GHz. With 5-6 cores active, it can run those cores at 2.67 GHz; with only 1-4 cores active, it can run those cores at 2.8 GHz
  • Each processor includes two integrated memory controllers, to reduce memory bottlenecks and improve performance. Memory access is at up to 1066 MHz frequency, depending on the processor model and memory used.
  • The MAX5 V2 adds an additional four memory controllers for a total of eight memory controllers to maximize memory parallelism and performance.
  • In processors implementing Hyper-Threading technology, each core has two threads capable of running an independent process. Thus, an 8-core processor can run 16 threads concurrently.
  • Intel’s Virtualization Technology (VT) integrates hardware-level virtualization hooks that allow operating system vendors to better utilize the hardware for virtualization workloads.
  • Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) technology for processor-to-processor connectivity and Intel Scalable Memory Interconnect (SMI) processor-to-memory connectivity:
    • Intel QPI link topology at up to 6.4 Gbps with four QPI links per CPU
    • Intel SMI link topology at up to 6.4 Gbps with four SMI links per CPU
  • Up to 64 DIMM sockets in the server (eight per memory card), plus an additional 32 DIMMs with an optional 1U MAX5 V2 memory expansion unit, for a total of 96 DIMM sockets. With two x3850 X5 servers each with MAX5 units, the total number of DIMM sockets is 192.
  • 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 up to 100 times more I/O operations per second (IOPS) than a typical HDD.
  • Up to 24 1.8-inch SSD bays, or up to 16 2.5-inch bays together with the option of an optical drive, provide a flexible and scalable all-in-one platform to meet your increasing demands.
  • Seven PCIe 2.0 slots for maximum I/O expandability

Availability and serviceability

The x3850 X5 provides many features to simplify serviceability and increase system uptime:

  • Support for machine check architecture (MCA) recovery, a feature of the Intel Xeon processor E7 family, which enables the handling of system errors that otherwise require the operating system to be halted. SAP HANA is one of the first application which leverages the MCA recovery to handle system errors in order to prevent the application from being terminated in case of a system error.
  • Extensive memory protection with Chipkill, and, with DIMMs containing x4 DRAM modules, Redundant Bit Steering (RBS) (also known as Double Device Data Correction or DDDC) is also supported . The combination of Chipkill and RBS provides very robust memory protection that sustains to two sequential memory DRAM chip failures without affecting overall system performance.
  • Redundant CPU-to-I/O hub interconnect links provide ability to self-recover from CPU failure. If primary CPU fails then eX5 systems can use the second CPU to boot the OS as they still have access to the integrated I/O devices because of redundant links between CPUs and I/O hubs.
  • Single image 8-way systems consisting of two interconnected 4-way nodes provide self-healing capabilities in case of single node failure. Two independent nodes form a resilient 8-way configuration. In case of single node failure the system can be restarted in degraded mode thus eliminating unexpected downtime that requires service specialist to recover.
  • Memory mirroring and memory rank sparing for redundancy in the event of a non-correctable memory failure.
  • Hot-swap drives, supporting RAID redundancy for data protection and greater system uptime.
  • Two 1975 W hot-swap power supplies and five fans (three hot-swap, two integrated into the power supplies).
  • The power source independent light path diagnostics panel and individual light path LEDs quickly lead the technician to failed (or failing) components, which simplifies servicing, speeds up problem resolution, and helps improve system availability.
  • Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA) detects when system components (processors, VRMs, memory, HDDs, fans, and power supplies) operate outside of standard thresholds and generates proactive alerts in advance of a possible failure, therefore increasing uptime.
  • Solid-state drives (SSDs) offer significantly better reliability than traditional mechanical HDDs for greater uptime.
  • Built-in Integrated Management Module (IMM) continuously monitors system parameters, triggers alerts, and performs recovering actions in case of failures to minimize downtime.
  • Built-in diagnostics, using Dynamic Systems Analysis (DSA) Preboot, speed up troubleshooting tasks to reduce service time.
  • Three-year customer-replaceable unit and on-site limited warranty, 9x5 next business day. Optional service upgrades are available.

Manageability and security

Powerful systems management features simplify local and remote management of the x3850 X5:

  • The server includes an Integrated Management Module (IMM) to monitor server availability and perform remote management.
  • 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 functionality, such as digital signatures and remote attestation.
  • IBM Systems Director is included for proactive systems management. It offers comprehensive systems management tools that help to increase uptime, reduce costs, and improve productivity through advanced server management capabilities.

Energy efficiency

The x3850 X5 offers the following energy-efficiency features to save energy, reduce operational costs, increase energy availability, and contribute to the green environment:

  • Energy-efficient planar components help lower operational costs.
  • Support for one or two or four highly efficient 675 W ac power supplies allows for efficient use and scalability to meet the power requirements of the installed components.
  • Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family offers significantly better performance over the previous generation while fitting into the same thermal design power (TDP) limits.
  • Low-voltage Intel Xeon processors draw less energy to satisfy the demands of power and thermally constrained data centers and telecommunication environments.
  • Low-voltage 1.35 V DDR3 memory RDIMMs consume 15% less energy compared to 1.5 V DDR3 RDIMMs.
  • Solid state drives (SSDs) consume as much as 80% less power than traditional spinning 2.5-inch HDDs.
  • The server uses hexagonal ventilation holes, which is a part of Calibrated Vectored Cooling™ technology. Hexagonal holes can be grouped more densely than round holes, providing more efficient airflow through the system.
  • IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager™ provides advanced data center power notification and management to help achieve lower heat output and reduced cooling needs.

QPI wrap card

In the x3850 X5, QPI links are used for interprocessor communication both in a single-node system and in a two-node system. They are also used to connect the system to a MAX5 memory expansion unit. In a single-node x3850 X5, the QPI links connect in a full mesh between all CPUs. To complete this mesh, the QPI wrap card is used. QPI wrap cards are installed in sockets where the scalability cables are installed.

The QPI wrap cards are only for single-node configurations with three or four processors installed and only when a MAX5 unit is not installed. Two QPI wrap cards are needed.

Memory options

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

The System x3850 X5 supports DDR3 memory. Memory is installed in memory cards. The server supports eight memory cards, and each card holds eight DIMMs. Two memory cards are connected to each processor. As a result, all eight memory cards are usable only when all four processors are installed. Adding a MAX5 memory expansion unit to the server offers an additional 32 DIMM slots for a total of 96 DIMM slots per node.

The following table lists the memory options that are supported in the server and MAX5 (either MAX5 V2 or MAX5).

Notes:

  • In the MAX5 memory expansion unit, do not mix DIMMs with x4 technology (DIMMs with DRAMs that are organized with 4 data lanes, as indicated by "x4" in the description) with DIMMs with x8 technology (DIMMs with DRAMs that are organized with 8 data lanes).
  • In the server, you can mix DIMMs with x4 and x8 technology.

Remote management

The server contains 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. 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 server also supports virtual media and remote control features, which provide the following functions:

  • Remotely viewing video with graphics resolutions up to 1600x1200 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
