Key features

System x iDataPlex is an innovative data center solution that maximizes performance and optimizes energy and space efficiencies.

The iDataPlex dx360 M4 server is a modular, highly dense system, designed around a highly flexible architecture for companies running large scale-out data centers that need energy efficiency, optimized cooling, extreme scalability, high density at the data center level, and high performance at an affordable price. iDataPlex solutions can help cost-effectively scale processing power to meet even the most demanding high-performance computing workloads.

The iDataPlex design is a data center solution for customers finding limitations in their scale-out computing environments. By delivering customized solutions that help reduce overall data center costs, Lenovo addresses the business growth challenges in the massive scale-out marketplace. The iDataPlex solution incorporates innovative ways to integrate x86-based processing performance at the node, rack, and data center levels. The iDataPlex solution provides customers with outstanding energy and cooling efficiency, multi-rack level manageability, complete flexibility in configuration, and minimal deployment effort.

A typical iDataPlex solution consists of multiple fully populated rack installations. The groundbreaking iDataPlex solution offers increased density in a new rack design. It uses the dimensions of a standard 42U enterprise rack but can hold 100U of equipment, populated with up to 84 servers, plus sixteen 1U vertical slots for switches, appliances, and power distribution units (PDUs). This added density addresses the major problems that prevent most data centers today from reaching their full capacity: insufficient electrical power and excess heat.

The energy-efficient design of the iDataPlex servers and chassis can significantly reduce the incoming energy requirement compared with standard 1U servers. In addition, the optional liquid-cooled Rear Door Heat eXchanger mounted to the back of the rack can remove 100% of the heat generated within the rack, drawing it from the data center before it exits the rack. It can even go beyond that, to the point of helping to cool the data center itself and reducing the need for Computer Room Air Conditioning (CRAC) units. This allows racks to be positioned much closer together, eliminating the need for hot aisles between rows of fully populated racks.

With the iDataPlex chassis design, air needs to travel only 20 inches front to back, rather than the 30 plus inches of a typical enterprise server. This shallow depth is part of the reason that the cooling efficiency of iDataPlex servers is so high—shorter distance means better airflow. In addition, the new design uses four large 80 mm fans per 2U chassis for more efficiency and lower noise than the eight small 40 mm fans used in standard 1U servers. The increased air pressure resulting from the shorter distance through the rack and the larger fans makes for one of the most efficient air-cooled solutions on the market.

Unlike most conventional racks, which are often left largely empty due to power and cooling limitations, the iDataPlex Rack can be fully populated, while removing all rack heat from the data center (up to 100,000 BTUs or 30 kW), using the Rear Door Heat eXchanger. In addition, iDataPlex chassis uses highly efficient (80 PLUS Platinum) power supplies, reducing energy draw and waste heat further.

Models announced March 2012
7913-A2x System x iDataPlex dx360 M4 2U chassis 1 (4x 80mm) / 1 1x 900 W / 2

The chassis ships with these:

  • Rail kit
  • AC power cord, 12A, IEC320 C14 to C13

One or two servers are supported in the 2U chassis depending on the whether a PCIe tray is attached:

  • Compute-intensive configurations

    For the highest compute performance, two servers are installed in one single 2U chassis. Each server can have:

    • Two PCIe 3.0 x16 full-height/half-length adapters (a total of four in the 2U chassis)
    • One 3.5" simple-swap SATA drive, or two 2.5" simple swap SAS/SATA HDDs, or SSDs, or four 1.8" simple-swap SSDs

    Figure 2 shows this chassis configuration.
  • GPU and coprocessor configurations

    The PCIe tray (feature code A1UH) attaches to a single dx360 M4 server and forms a 2U server that installs in the 2U chassis. With two 2U riser cards, the combined unit has the following expansions:

    • Two double-wide PCIe graphics cards in the upper half of the chassis, slots 3 and 4, each PCIe 3.0 x16 supporting full-height, full-length, double-width PCIe adapters
    • Two PCIe cards in the lower half of the chassis, slots 1 and 2, each PCIe 3.0 x8 supporting full-height, half-length PCIe adapters
    • Two disk bays on the left for either two 3.5-inch disk drives, four 2.5-inch disk drives, or eight 1.8-inch solid-state disks

Figure 5 shows the configuration with the PCIe tray.

PCIe tray
Figure 5. PCIe tray

Each iDataPlex chassis provides a shared high-efficiency power supply and fans. The iDataPlex uses Direct Dock Power to power the nodes in the chassis. Industry standard power cords power each node, but the cords are attached to the rack in a fixed location. When you slide in the chassis, the power receptacle of the chassis simply connects to the power cord, which means that you do not have to access the rear of the rack to attach the power cord.

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 dx360 M4 supports DDR3 memory. The server supports up to eight DIMMs when one processor is installed and up to 16 DIMMs when two processors are installed. Each processor has four memory channels, and there are two DIMMs per memory channel (2 DPC). Up to 16 LRDIMMs, RDIMMs or UDIMMs are supported (8 per processor).

In the dx360 M4, the maximum memory speed of a configuration is the lower of the following two values:

  • The memory speed of the processor (See Table 4.)
  • The memory speed of the DIMM (See Table 5 or Table 6)

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. In such a case all DIMMs operate at 1.5 V.

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC
  • Memory mirroring
  • Memory rank 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.

The following two tables lists memory options available for the dx360 M4 server. The first table is memory options for systems with E5-2600 processors. The second table is memory options for systems with E5-2600 v2 processors.

Remote management

The server contains Integrated Management Module II (IMM2), 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 IMM2 lights LEDs to help you diagnose the problem, records the error in the event log, and alerts you to the problem. Optionally, the IMM2 also provides a virtual presence capability for remote server management capabilities.

The IMM2 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 1600x1200 at 75 Hz with 16 M colors, 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 IMM2 memory and mapping it to the server as a virtual drive

The blue-screen capture feature captures the video display contents before the IMM2 restarts the server when the IMM2 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. The following table lists the remote management option.

Rear Door Heat eXchanger

Lenovo offers an alternative to standard air cooling systems with the Rear Door Heat eXchanger (part number 43V6048). The Rear Door Heat eXchanger replaces the existing rear door of an iDataPlex rack and provides an extremely efficient water-based cooling solution. The exchanger dissipates heat generated by all servers and provides the data center with cooling at the most efficient place, which is immediately behind the exhaust of the system fans.

The Rear Door Heat eXchanger has the following specifications:

  • Dimensions:
    • Width: 1190 mm (46.9 in.)
    • Depth: 120 mm (4.7 in.)
    • Height: 1995 mm (78.5 in.)

    The heat exchanger adds 127 mm (5 in.) to iDataPlex Rack depth if the casters are removed.
  • Doorway dimensions:
    • Minimum height: 2020 mm (79.5 in.)
    • Recommended height: 2057 mm (81 in.)
  • Weight:
    • 77 kg (170 lb) empty
    • 91 kg (200 lb) full, with water

Depending on conditions, the Rear Door Heat eXchanger can extract all heat produced by equipment using 30 kWh of energy (while operating at 90 - 94% of the door’s maximum efficiency). The Rear Door Heat eXchanger does not use electricity.
