Introduction

System x3690 X5 is a powerful two-socket 2U rack-mount server using the latest Intel Xeon processors. The x3690 X5 servers can be combined with the MAX5 memory expansion unit for up to 2 TB of memory. Add to that the 16 2.5-inch disk drive bays and you have a high performance workhorse in a rack-dense package. The x3690 X5 server belongs to the family of a new generation of Enterprise X-Architecture® servers. The server delivers innovation with enhanced reliability and availability features to enable optimal performance for databases, enterprise applications, and virtualized environments.

The System x3690 X5 is shown in Figure 1.

Did you know?

The x3690 X5 offers a two step approach to expanding the system with memory. You can first start with 16 DIMMs installed just on the system board, then as needs require, install the memory mezzanine and an additional 16 DIMMs. The for applications that can use the most amount of RAM, use the 1U MAX5 memory expansion unit which adds an additional 32 DIMM sockets. The MAX5 scalability and memory expansion feature is a unique Lenovo enhancement, not offered by other x86 server architectures. The total number of DIMM sockets available to the system is then 64 DIMMs -- in only 3U of rack space -- and with 32 GB DIMMs, that is 2 TB of RAM.

The x3690 X5 servers also contain up to 16 HDD bays that support 2.5-inch hot-swap internal SAS/SATA drives totaling up to 8TB, or up to 24 solid-state drive bays, supporting 1.8-inch hot-swap SSDs, using up to three eXFlash storage options. Each individual SSD is capable of sustaining approximately 4,300 IOPS, which is more than 10X what an enterprise 15,000 RPM 2.5-inch 146.8GB SAS HDD can achieve (420 IOPS).

Key features

The x3690 X5 is an outstanding 2U two-socket mission-critical server, offering outstanding performance, superior reliability, and fault-tolerant memory characteristics.

Lenovo has been designing and implementing servers under the X-Architecture® name since 2001. eX5 technology represents the fifth generation of enterprise servers based on the same design principle Lenovo 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 x3690 X5 offers numerous features to boost performance, improve scalability, and reduce costs:

  • The x3690 X5 supports up to two high-performance Intel Xeon E7 family allowing you to upgrade as business needs require.
  • 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 32 dual inline memory modules (DIMMs) in the base system (16 on the system planar and 16 on an optional memory mezzanine inside the server), plus an additional 32 DIMMs with an optional 1U MAX5 V2 memory expansion unit, for a total of 64 DIMM sockets.
  • Support for 32 GB DIMMs for a maximum of 2 TB per x3690 X5 with MAX5 V2
  • 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.

Availability and serviceability

The x3690 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.
  • 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.
  • Four redundant hot-swap power supplies and five redundant hot-swap fans to provide availability for business-critical applications.
  • 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 Version II (IMM2) 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 x3690 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 x3690 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, 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 E7-2800/4800/880 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.

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.

The System x3690 X5 supports DDR3 memory. Memory is installed in DIMM sockets either on the system planar (16 sockets) in an optional memory mezzanine tray (16 sockets). The DIMMs on the system planar are directly connected to the first processor, and the DIMMs on the mezzanine are directly connected to the second processor. If you install the mezzanine then you must install the second processor. However the reverse is different: you do not have to install the mezzanine if you have two processors installed (although for performance reasons the mezzanine is recommended).

The following table lists memory options available for x3690 X5 server and for the MAX5 memory expansion unit.

** When two feature codes are listed, the first is the feature code when the DIMM is used in the server, and the second is the feature code when the DIMM is used in the MAX5 V2.

The MAX5 V2 supports a subset of the memory DIMMs listed as shown in the table. The 16 GB and 32 GB x4 memory options that are supported in the MAX5 as listed in the above table are only supported when it is the only type of memory used in the MAX5. No other memory options can be used in the MAX5 if one of the 16 GB or 32 GB DIMMs options are used in the MAX5. These x4 DIMM also supports redundant bit steering (RBS) when used in the MAX5 or when used in x3690 X5 servers with E7 processors (machine type 7147).

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC
  • ChipKill
  • Memory Mirroring
  • Memory Sparing
  • Redundant Bit Steering (MAX5 or servers with E7 processors only, x4 DIMMs only)

Internal storage

System x3690 X5 server supports internally up to 16 2.5-inch SAS or SATA drives, or up to 24 1.8-inch solid state drives (SSDs). The number of drives that can be inserted depends on the backplanes that are installed. Backplane options are listed in the following table. The backplanes that are standard in each model are listed in Table 2. Only certain combinations of backplanes are supported; see the Installation and User's Guide for information.

I/O expansion options

The server offers the up to five PCI Express 2.0 slots through two riser slots. The slots available depend on the riser cards used. None of the slots are hot-swap. All slots are available regardless of whether one or two processors are installed.

Riser slot 1 can accept one of the riser cards listed in the following table, however, all standard models have the 2x8 riser card installed. This card provides the following PCIe 2.0 slots:

  • Slot 1, PCIe 2.0 x8 full height, half length slot
  • Slot 2, PCIe 2.0 x8 full height, half length slot

For CTO customers, the 2x8 riser can be replaced by another riser with one PCIe 2.0 x16 slot, either a full-length slot or a 3/4-length slot, as listed in the following table. Additional power for the adapter is available from an on-board power connector if needed. Note that you cannot install the full-length riser (60Y0337) if the memory mezzanine is installed.

Power supplies

The x3690 X5 power subsystem consists of up to four hot-pluggable 675W auto-sensing power supplies. The modules are independently powered by AC line cords. Most standard models have one or two power supplies as standard; workload-optimized models have all four standard. An AC power supply ships standard with one 2.8 m C13 - C14 power cord.

One power supply is sufficient when the total power budget is less than 675W. Use the System x and BladeCenter® Power Configurator to determine the power requirements of your configuration. The Power Configurator is available at:
https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/lnvo-pwrconf

For power budgets under 675W, installing a second power supply provides redundancy. To install a second power supply, use the High Efficiency 675W Power Supply, part number 60Y0332. Installing four power supplies ensures redundancy even with a fully loaded server. To install the third and fourth power supplies, use the 675W Redundant Power Supply Kit, part number 60Y0327. The power subsystem is designed for N+N operation and hot-swap exchange. Having four power supplies installed allows for N+N redundancy, where N=2 (that is, a total of four power supplies where two are redundant backups for the other two). The following table lists the part numbers.

The MAX5 V1 has one power supply standard and a second optional power supply for redundancy. See the MAX5 section for details. The MAX5 V2 has two power supplies installed. No further power supplies are needed or available.

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 Matrox G200eR2, 16 MB DDR2 SDRAM memory. Maximum graphic resolution is 1600x1200 at 75 Hz with 16 M colors.
  • 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

We are dedicated to delivering a positive finance experience for customers like you who want to maximize your purchase power by obtaining the technology you need today, protect against technology obsolescence, and preserve your capital for other uses.

We work with businesses, non-profit organizations, governments and educational institutions to finance their entire technology solution. We focus on making it easy to do business with us. Our highly experienced team of finance professionals operates in a work culture that emphasizes the importance of providing outstanding customer service. Our systems, processes and flexible policies support our goal of providing customers with a positive experience.

We finance your entire solution. Unlike others, we allow you to bundle everything you need from hardware and software to service contracts, installation costs, training fees, and sales tax. If you decide weeks or months later to add to your solution, we can consolidate everything into a single invoice.

Our Premier Client services provide large accounts with special handling services to ensure these complex transactions are serviced properly. As a premier client, you have a dedicated finance specialist who manages your account through its life, from first invoice through asset return or purchase. This specialist develops an in-depth understanding of your invoice and payment requirements. For you, this dedication provides a high-quality, easy, and positive financing experience.
