Key features

A high-performance dual-socket tower server, the System x3300 M4 server, can deliver the scalability, reliable performance, and optimized efficiency for your general business applications. You start with the basics and then upgrade as your business changes, without jeopardizing existing investments. Virtualizing the PC infrastructure into one server can provide access to a powerful server with abundant storage space and significantly reduce IT costs.


Scalability and performance

The x3300 M4 offers numerous features to boost performance, improve scalability, and reduce costs:

  • The Intel Xeon processor E5-2400 product family improves productivity by offering affordable dual-socket system performance. It has eight-core processors with up to 2.3 GHz core speeds, up to 20 MB of L3 cache, and one Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) link of up to 8 GTps.
  • Up to 2 processors, 16 cores, and 32 threads maximize the concurrent execution of multithreaded applications.
  • With intelligent and adaptive system performance with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, processor cores can run at maximum speeds during peak workloads by temporarily going beyond processor thermal design power (TDP).
  • Intel Hyper-Threading Technology boosts performance for multithreaded applications by enabling simultaneous multithreading within each processor core, up to two threads per core.
  • Intel Virtualization Technology integrates hardware-level virtualization hooks so that operating system vendors can better use the hardware for virtualization workloads.
  • Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) can improve floating point performance for compute-intensive technical and scientific applications.
  • The 12 registered DIMMs (RDIMMs) of 1600 MHz DDR3 ECC memory provide speed, high availability, and a memory capacity of up to 192 GB.
  • The theoretical maximum memory bandwidth of the Intel Xeon processor E5-2400 product family is 38.4 GBps at 1600 MHz, which is 20% more than the previous generation of Intel Xeon 5600 processors.
  • The server offers up to four integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports with a convenient Feature on Demand (FoD) upgrade process that does not require the purchase of additional hardware. Two ports are enabled as standard, and two ports can be enabled with an optional license.
  • The server offers PCIe 3.0 I/O expansion capabilities. These capabilities improve the theoretical maximum bandwidth by almost 100% (8 GTps per link by using 128b/130b encoding) compared to the previous generation of PCIe 2.0 (5 GTps per link by using 8b/10b encoding).
  • With Intel Integrated I/O Technology, the PCIe 3.0 controller is integrated into the Intel Xeon processor E5 family. This controller reduces I/O latency and increases overall system performance.
  • Up to sixteen 2.5-inch hot-swap drive bays or eight 3.5-inch hot-swap or simple-swap drive bays provide significant internal storage capacity.

Availability and serviceability

The x3300 M4 provides many features to simplify serviceability and increase system uptime:

  • Memory mirroring and memory rank sparing for redundancy if a noncorrectable memory failure occurs.
  • Tool-less cover removal, which provides easy access to upgrades and serviceable parts, such as CPU, memory, and expansion cards.
  • Hot-swap drives that support RAID redundancy for data protection and greater system uptime.
  • Up to two redundant hot-swap power supplies (model dependent) for business-critical applications.
  • Optional N+1 redundant fan solution to maximum uptime if a fan failure occurs.
  • Individual light path LEDs that quickly lead the technician to failed (or failing) components. This feature simplifies servicing, speeds up problem resolution, and helps to improve system availability.
  • Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA), which detects when system components (for example, processors, memory, and hard disk drives) operate outside of standard thresholds. It also generates proactive alerts in advance of possible failure, therefore, increasing uptime.
  • A built-in IMM2 that continuously monitors system parameters, triggers alerts, and performs recovering actions if a failure to minimize downtime occurs.
  • Built-in diagnostics by using Dynamic Systems Analysis (DSA) Preboot, which speeds 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 x3300 M4 server:

  • An IMM2 to monitor server availability and perform remote management.
  • An integrated industry-standard Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) that enables improved setup, configuration, and updates, and simplifies error handling.
  • Integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 support that enables advanced cryptographic functionality, such as digital signatures and remote attestation.
  • Industry-standard support of Advanced Encryption Standard-New Instructions (AES-NI) for faster, stronger encryption.
  • IBM Systems Director for proactive systems management. Systems Director offers comprehensive systems management tools that help to increase up-time, reduce costs, and improve productivity through advanced server management capabilities.
  • Intel Execute Disable Bit functionality that helps to prevent certain classes of malicious buffer overflow attacks when combined with a supporting operating system.
  • Intel Trusted Execution Technology, which provides enhanced security through hardware-based resistance to malicious software attacks. With this technology, an application can run in its own isolated space protected from all other software that runs on a system.

 

Energy efficiency

The x3300 M4 server offers the following energy-efficiency features to save energy, reduce operational costs, increase energy availability, and contribute to the green environment:

  • Energy-efficient system board components to help lower operational costs.
  • High-efficient 550 W and 750 W redundant power supplies, with 80 PLUS Platinum certification, and an efficient 460 W fixed power supply with 80 PLUS Bronze certification.
  • The Intel Xeon processor E5-2400 product family, which offers better performance over the previous generation and fits into the same TDP limits.
  • Intel Intelligent Power Capability, which powers individual processor elements on and off, as needed, to reduce power draw.
  • Low-voltage Intel Xeon processors that draw less energy to satisfy demands of power and thermally constrained data centers and telecommunication environments.
  • Low-voltage 1.35 V DDR3 memory RDIMMs that use 15% less energy than 1.5 V DDR3 RDIMMs.
  • Use of hexagonal ventilation holes, which are part of the Calibrated Vectored Cooling™ technology. Hexagonal holes can be grouped more densely than round holes and provide more efficient airflow through the system.
  • IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager™, which provides advanced data center power notification and management to help achieve lower heat output and reduced cooling needs.

* Maximum quantity supported is shown for two processors installed. When one processor is installed, the maximum quantity supported is a half of what is shown.
† The number here is the most memory that you can have installed that will operate at the rated speed of the DIMMs. "No support" means that the DIMM cannot operate at its rated speed in this server and operates at a lower speed even at 1 DPC.

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC
  • Chipkill (for x4-based memory DIMMs)
  • Memory mirroring
  • Memory rank sparing

If memory mirroring is used, DIMMs must be installed in pairs (a minimum of one pair per CPU), and both DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type and size.

If memory rank sparing is used, a minimum of one quad-rank DIMM or two single-rank or dual-rank DIMMs must be installed per populated channel. (The DIMMs do not need to be identical.) In rank sparing mode, one rank of a DIMM in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory. The size of a rank varies depending on the DIMMs that are installed.

The following table lists the memory options that are available for the x3300 M4 server.

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.

Remote management

The x3300 M4 server contains 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 IMM Advanced Upgrade (software feature) 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 up to 23 bits per pixel color depths, regardless of the system state
  • Remotely accessing the server by 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.

The following table lists the remote management option.

In the default UEFI configuration, Ethernet port 2 is configured to be dedicated to remote access to the IMM2. If preferred, you can change the UEFI setting so that remote access to the IMM2 is via Port 1 and also accessible to the operating system. This setting is also useful if you do not have a dedicated management network. The following table shows this setting and its effect on the Ethernet ports.

Note: The IMM2 network must operate 100 Mbps full duplex. The IMM2 network connection does not support Gigabit Ethernet. In shared mode, the production Ethernet network on that port still operates at Gigabit speeds.
