Key features

This section lists the key features of the BladeCenter E chassis.

Scalability and performance

The BladeCenter E chassis offers numerous features to boost performance and improve scalability:

  • Up to 14 servers with support for the latest generation of BladeCenter blades, which helps provide performance and investment protection.
  • IBM Virtual Fabric offers up to four I/O ports on a single-wide blade and up to four I/O modules in a single chassis, with the choice of Ethernet, Fibre Channel, iSCSI, and SAS connectivity.
  • BladeCenter E supports port speeds up to 8 Gbps.
  • BladeCenter E provides up to 288 Gbps of external uplink bandwidth (full-duplex) with up to four IBM 1/10Gb Uplink Ethernet switches.
  • A flexible and scalable architecture with integrated servers and networking, storage, and management infrastructure supports your growing business needs.

Manageability and security

Powerful systems management features simplify local and remote management of the BladeCenter E chassis:

  • The high degree of integration in the BladeCenter E chassis reduces the need for server components, replacing numerous fans, KVM and Ethernet cables, power supplies, external switches, and other components.
  • The BladeCenter E chassis includes the Advanced Management Module (AMM). The AMM boosts administrator productivity and reduces skill level requirements, which can help reduce costs, improve overall productivity, and make administration easier by providing a single point of control for the solution. The AMM supports many industry-standard open protocols.
  • The AMM provides extensive security features, including role-based user authentication and access control, LDAP support, and SSH and SSL protocols for secure remote systems management.
  • IBM Systems Director remains a powerful and intelligent solution to manage BladeCenter systems along side rack mount and tower servers. Systems Director uses the hardware’s capabilities by surfacing pertinent information about your blade server. The easy-to-use wizards provide step-by-step instructions and offer automated deployment capabilities.
  • IBM Fabric Manager simplifies the deployment of infrastructure connections by managing network and storage address assignments.

Availability and serviceability

The BladeCenter E chassis provides many features to simplify serviceability and increase system uptime:

  • BladeCenter reduces the number of parts that are required to run the system. By sharing fans, power supplies, systems management, and ports, there are fewer parts to buy and maintain, and fewer components that can fail and cause downtime.
  • Hot-swap components, such as the server, switches, power modules, and blowers, ensure maximum uptime.
  • Redundant components, such as blowers and power modules, ensure that systems can remain available even during hardware maintenance windows and failures.
  • The Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA) detects when the system components operate outside of the standard thresholds and generates proactive alerts in advance of possible failure, therefore increasing uptime.
  • Dual independent power and signal connectors to the BladeCenter E chassis midplane provide fault tolerance to increase uptime.
  • The light path diagnostics panel and individual light path LEDs quickly lead the technician to failed (or failing) components. These features simplify servicing, speed up problem resolution, and improve system availability.
  • Three-year customer replaceable unit and onsite limited warranty, with next business day 9x5, provides an additional peace of mind.

Energy efficiency

The BladeCenter E chassis offers the following energy-efficient features to save energy, reduce operational costs, increase energy availability, and contribute to a green environment:

  • Energy-efficient components and the component-sharing design of the BladeCenter chassis provides ultimate power and cooling savings.
  • The BladeCenter E helps reduce energy costs with high-efficiency power supplies.
  • The BladeCenter E uses hexagonal ventilation holes, a part of the IBM Calibrated Vectored Cooling™ technology. Hexagonal holes can be grouped more densely than round holes, providing a more efficient airflow through the system, which helps reduce cooling costs.
  • IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager™ provides advanced power management features with actual real-time energy monitoring, reporting, and capping features.

http://ibm.com/servers/eserver/serverproven/compat/us/

I/O architecture

The BladeCenter E chassis provides connection paths between the server blade bays and I/O bays through a hardwired dual redundant midplane.

Each blade bay has four dedicated I/O connections (two per midplane) linked to four I/O bays (one blade bay connection to one I/O bay). Thus, each I/O bay has a total of 14 I/O connections (to 14 blade bays). Figure 4 shows the I/O topology.

BladeCenter E I/O topology
Figure 4. BladeCenter E I/O topology

Each blade server has at least two integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports (Ethernet 1 and Ethernet 2). Ethernet 1 is routed to I/O bay 1 and Ethernet 2 is routed to I/O bay 2, which means that only Ethernet-capable I/O modules can be used in I/O bays 1 and 2.

I/O expansion cards that you optionally install in blade servers have two ports, which are routed to I/O bays 3 and 4. Thus, depending on the expansion card that is installed, compatible I/O modules must be chosen for those I/O bays. Unless an expansion card is installed in one or more processor blades, there is no need for I/O modules 3 and 4.

The I/O modules must be compatible with the I/O interfaces present in the blade servers. For example, when a Fibre Channel expansion card is installed in a blade server, I/O modules 3 and 4 must also be Fibre Channel-based (that is, an FC switch module), and vice versa. If you install FC switches in bays 3 and 4, then any expansion cards that are installed in all other blade servers in the same chassis must be Fibre Channel.

Table 4 shows the connections between adapter slots in the compute nodes to the switch bays in the chassis.

Power modules

The BladeCenter E unit comes with one pair of 2000 W or 2320 W (model-dependent) hot-swap power modules in power module bays 1 and 2, and with two IEC 320-C19 to C20 power cables. Each power module has its own IEC 320-C20 power connector.

The power modules in bays 1 and 2 provide power to all the I/O and management modules and to blade bays 1 - 6. The power modules in bays 3 and 4 provide power to blade bays 7 - 14.

Table 10 shows the ordering information for power modules (each part number contains two power modules and two IEC 320-C19 to C20 power cables).

Part number Feature code Description
39M4675 2105 BladeCenter E 2000 W Power Supply Modules
46M0508 2106 BladeCenter E 2320 W Power Supply Option*

* This option requires the AMM.

Important:

  • Because the existing chassis might have lower capacity power supplies (1200, 1400, 1800, or 2000 W), ensure that the pair of power modules in the same power domain has the same capacity.
  • When you use 2320 W power modules in a BladeCenter E Type 8677 unit, all power modules must be 2320 W modules.
    • 2320 W power module field replaceable units (FRUs) may be listed as either 2320 W or 2500 W part on the power supply label and in the AMM. These power supplies can be used interchangeably in the same power domain.

Acoustic attenuation module

The Acoustic Attenuation Module is an option for BladeCenter E that you can install over the blower modules in the rear of the chassis to reduce decibels in sound-sensitive environments. BladeCenter E generates 74 decibels (7.4 bels) at maximum performance levels. The Acoustic Attenuation Module reduces the decibel level to 69 decibels by using a T-shaped baffle.

Table 11 lists the optional acoustic attenuation module that can be ordered for the BladeCenter E chassis.
