Did you know?

NeXtScale System is built with industry-standard components to create flexible configurations of servers, chassis, and networking switches that integrate easily in a standard 19-inch rack. It is a general-purpose platform that provides flexibility to clients for creating unique and differentiated solutions using off-the-shelf components. Front-access cabling enables you to quickly and easily make changes in networking, power connections, and storage.

Key features

Introducing NeXtScale System, which is a new generation Intelligent Cluster™ platform that follows on from the highly successful iDataPlex offering.

Designed with industry-standard, off-the-shelf components, NeXtScale System is a general-purpose platform that is designed to give customers a flexible IT infrastructure. The offering initially will be available with compute-intensive systems, but the design allows for a mix-and-match approach, with I/O-rich, storage-rich, and GPU-rich offerings possible. Customized solutions can be configured to provide an application-appropriate platform with a choice of servers, networking switches, adapters, and racks.

This modular system is designed to scale and grow with data center needs to protect and maximize IT investments. Because it is optimized for standard racks, users can easily mix high-density NeXtScale server offerings and non-NeXtScale components within the same rack. NeXtScale System also provides tremendous time to value by enabling users to set up and start it in a shorter period.

The NeXtScale nx360 M4 server provides a dense, flexible solution with a low total cost of ownership (TCO). The half-wide, dual-socket NeXtScale nx360 M4 server is designed for data centers that require high performance but are constrained by floor space. By taking up less physical space in the data center, the NeXtScale server enhances density, and it supports the Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 series up to 130 W and 12-core processors, thus providing more performance per server. The nx360 M4 compute node contains only essential components in the base architecture to provide a cost-optimized platform.

The nx360 M4 also supports additional expansion options in the form of trays that attach to the top of the server. The Storage Native Expansion Tray can be added to the nx360 M4 to form a storage-dense server supporting up to 32 TB of local storage. The PCIe Native Expansion Tray can be added to the nx360 M4 to form a powerful compute engine, supporting two GPU or coprocessor adapters.

The NeXtScale n1200 Enclosure is an efficient, 6U, 12-node chassis with no built-in networking or switching capabilities, and therefore requires no chassis-level management. Sensibly designed to provide shared, high-efficiency power and cooling for housed servers, the n1200 enclosure is designed to scale with your business needs.

Adding compute capability, or later storage or acceleration capability, is as simple as adding specific nodes to the chassis. Because each node is independent and self-sufficient, there is no contention for resources among nodes within the enclosure. A typical rack holds only 42 1U systems, but this chassis doubles the density (up to 84 compute nodes within the same footprint).

Scalability and performance

The NeXtScale System and the NeXtScale nx360 M4 server offer numerous features to boost performance, improve scalability, and reduce costs:

  • Up to 12 compute nodes, each with two of the latest Xeon processors, eight DIMMs, and two PCIe slots, in 6U of rack space. It is a highly dense, scalable, and price-optimized offering.
  • The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v2 product family improves productivity by offering superior system performance with 12-core processors and up to 3.0 GHz core speeds, up to 25 MB of L3 cache, and QPI interconnect links of up to 8 GTps.
  • Two processors, up to 24 cores, and 48 threads maximize the concurrent execution of multi-threaded applications.
  • Intelligent and adaptive system performance with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 allows CPU cores to run at maximum speeds during peak workloads by temporarily going beyond processor thermal design power (TDP).
  • Intel Hyper-Threading Technology boosts performance for multi-threaded applications by enabling simultaneous multi-threading within each processor core, up to two threads per core.
  • Intel Virtualization Technology integrates hardware-level virtualization hooks that allow operating system vendors to better use the hardware for virtualization workloads.
  • Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) improve floating-point performance for compute-intensive technical and scientific applications.
  • Eight DIMMs of registered 1866 MHz DDR3 ECC memory provide speed, high availability, and a memory capacity of up to 256 GB.
  • Support for additional local storage with the use of the Storage Native Expansion Tray. When using 4 TB HDDs, you can create an ultra-dense storage server with up to 32 TB of total disk capacity within 1U of comparable rack density. The nx360 M4 with the Storage Native Expansion Tray offers a perfect solution for today’s data-intensive workloads.
  • Boosts performance with PCIe Native Expansion Tray by offering support for two high-powered GPUs or Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors within a single node .
  • The use of solid-state drives (SSDs) instead of or with traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) can improve I/O performance. An SSD can support up to 100 times more I/O operations per second (IOPS) than a typical HDD.
  • PCI Express 3.0 I/O expansion capabilities improve the theoretical maximum bandwidth by 60% (8 GTps per link) compared with the previous generation of PCI Express 2.0.
  • There is support for 10 Gb Ethernet and FDR mezzanine cards that offer network performance without consuming a PCIe slot.
  • With Intel Integrated I/O Technology, the PCI Express 3.0 controller is integrated into the Intel Xeon processor E5 family, which reduces I/O latency and increases overall system performance.

Manageability and security

Powerful systems management features simplify local and remote management of the nx360 M4:

  • The server includes an Integrated Management Module II (IMM2) to monitor server availability and perform remote management.
  • An 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.
  • Intel Execute Disable Bit functionality can prevent certain classes of malicious buffer overflow attacks when combined with a supporting operating system.
  • Intel Trusted Execution Technology provides enhanced security through hardware-based resistance to malicious software attacks, allowing the application to run in its own isolated space that is protected from all other software running on a system.

NeXtScale n1200 Enclosure support

The NeXtScale nx360 M4 is supported in the NeXtScale n1200 Enclosure. The number of servers supported in each chassis depends on the thermal design power (TDP) value of the processors used in the servers (Table 5), the number and capacity of power supplies installed (1300 W or 900 W) and the AC input voltage (100-127V or 200-240V). The following tables use the following conventions:

  • A green cell means that the chassis can be filled with servers up to the maximum number supported in the chassis (ie 12 servers without GPU Trays installed, 6 servers with GPU Trays installed).
  • A yellow cell means that the maximum number of servers that the chassis can hold is fewer than the total available bays. Other bays in the chassis must remain empty.

Notes on the tables:

  • OVS (Oversubscription) of the power system allows for more efficient use of the available system power. By using oversubscription, users can make the most of the extra power from the redundant power supplies when the power supplies are in healthy condition.
  • Oversubscription and Power supply redundancy options are set via one of the available user interfaces to the Fan and Power Controller in the chassis.
  • Use the Power Configurator to determine an accurate power model for your configuration: http://ibm.com/systems/bladecenter/resources/powerconfig.html
  • Some cells indicate two numbers (for example “5 + 1”). This indicates support for a mixture of servers with and without the GPU Tray:
    • First number: Number of servers with a GPU Tray attached and two GPUs installed
    • Second number: Number of servers without a GPU Tray attached.

    For example, “5 + 1” means Supported combination is 5 servers with the GPU Tray attached (consuming 10 bays in the chassis), plus 1 server without a GPU Tray attached (1 bay). In such a configuration 11 bays are consumed and the 1 remaining server bay in the chassis must remain empty.
  • The tables are as follows:
    • Table 3 - 1300 W power supplies, 200-240V AC input, no GPU Trays
    • Table 4 - 1300 W power supplies, 200-240V AC input, GPU Trays with 130 W GPUs

The following figure shows the NeXtScale Storage Native Expansion Tray with the cover removed showing seven 3.5-inch drives installed.

77.4744.jpg
Figure 7. NeXtScale Storage Native Expansion Tray

When the Storage Native Expansion Tray is used, one of the following disk controller adapters must be installed in the PCIe slot in the nx360 M4:

  • ServeRAID M1115 SAS/SATA Controller for System x, 81Y4448
  • N2115 SAS/SATA HBA for System x, 46C8988

Internal storage

The NeXtScale nx360 M4 server supports one of the following drives internally in the server:

  • One 3.5-inch simple-swap SATA drive
  • Two 2.5-inch simple-swap HDDs or SSDs
  • Four 1.8-inch simple-swap SSDs

In addition, the nx360 M4 supports seven additional 3.5-inch drive bays if the NeXtScale Storage Native Expansion Tray is attached. The Storage Native Expansion Tray can be used with any of the above three internal drive configurations to provide the following bay combinations:

  • Eight 3.5-inch simple-swap SATA drives
  • Seven 3.5-inch simple-swap SATA drives and two 2.5-inch simple-swap SATA HDDs
  • Seven 3.5-inch simple-swap SATA drives and four 1.8-inch simple-swap SSDs

Drive cages for the drives internal to the nx360 M4 are as listed in the following table. Drives used in the Storage Native Expansion Tray do not need a cage.

The following figure shows the three variations (the two 3.5-inch cages look similar).

Drive bay options
Figure 8. Drive bay options

There are two 3.5-inch drive cages - the last two rows of the above table. If the Storage Native Expansion Tray is attached to the nx360 M4, then the use of the RAID cage (feature A4GE, option 00Y8615) allows you to configure a RAID array that spans all 8 drives - the 7 in the storage tray and the 1 drive internal to the nx360 M4. Such a configuration would be connected either to a ServeRAID M1115 adapter or N2115 SAS HBA.

If the 3.5-inch HDD cage (feature A41J) is used, then a RAID array can only be formed with the 7 drives in the storage tray. In such a configuration, the drives in the storage tray are connected either to a ServeRAID M1115 adapter or N2115 SAS HBA, and the single drive in the nx360 M4 is connected to the ServeRAID C100.

Controllers for internal storage

The following table lists the RAID controllers and SAS HBA that are used for internal disk storage of the nx360 M4 server. These are alternatives to the onboard SATA controller and one may be required depending on the storage configuration.

† Requires the 3.5-inch RAID cage (feature A4GE, option 00Y8615)

Using the ServeRAID C100 with 1.8-inch SSDs

The on-board ServeRAID C100 SATA controller provides four channels, two at 3 Gbps and two at 6 Gbps. These connect to the four 1.8-inch drive bays in the nx360 M4. When installing only two 1.8-inch drives, install them in the top two drive bays to maximize performance, since the top two bays are the ones operating at 6 Gbps.

When four 1.8-inch SS SATA SSD drives are installed, the two located at the top of the cage will operate at 6 Gbps while the two at the bottom will operate at 3 Gbps. An array involving drives at different speeds, will perform at the lowest speed. For example, a paired array between top drives will operate at 6 Gbps but, a paired array between a top drive and a bottom, will operate at 3 Gbps.

Controller use in conjunction with the Storage Native Expansion Tray

When the Storage Native Expansion Tray is used one of the following disk controller adapters must be installed in the PCIe slot in the nx360 M4.

  • ServeRAID M1115 SAS/SATA Controller for System x, 81Y4448
  • N2115 SAS/SATA HBA for System x, 46C8988

If you are using the ServeRAID M1115 controller and you have a 3.5-inch drive in the internal bay of the nx360 M4, and you wish to be able to form a RAID array with all 8 drives (1 in the server and 7 in the storage tray), then you must use the 3.5-inch RAID cage for the internal drive (feature A4GE, option 00Y8615), replacing the standard 3.5-inch HDD cage if already installed in the server. The 3.5-inch RAID cage includes a backplane that allows the internal drive to be connected to the drives in the storage tray.

If you do not use the 3.5-inch RAID cage or you are using 2.5-inch or 1.8-inch drives in the nx360 M4, then the internal drives will be connected to a separate controller than the drives in the storage tray and you will not be able to form a RAID array spanning both internal drives and drives in the storage tray. The internal drives are connected to the ServeRAID C100 controller as indicated in the above table.

Note: It is not a supported combination to have the Storage Native Expansion Tray with 7 drives along with two 2.5-inch SAS drives installed in the nx360 M4. This is because the ServeRAID C100 (which would be required to drive the two internal drives) does not support SAS drives. The use of 2.5-inch SATA drives are supported however.

00Y8393 A4MB NeXtScale PCIe Native Expansion Tray

When the PCIe Native Expansion Tray is used, it is connected to the compute node via two riser cards, each providing a PCIe x16 connector to the GPUs or coprocessors installed in the tray.

  • 2-slot PCIe 3.0 x24 riser card installed in the front riser slot (riser slot 1 - see Figure 3). This riser card replaces the standard 1-slot riser used to connect standard PCIe cards internal to the compute node. The 2-slot riser card offers these connection:
    • PCIe 3.0 x8 slot for the slot internal to the compute node
    • PCIe 3.0 x16 slots for the front adapter in the PCIe Native Expansion Tray
  • 1-slot PCIe 3.0 x16 riser card installed in the rear riser slot (riser slot 2 - see Figure 3). This riser is used to connect the rear adapter in the PCIe Native Expansion Tray.

  • Server console serial redirection

IMM2 Standard (as enabled using the Feature on Demand software license key using part number 90Y3900) has the following features in addition to the IMM2 Basic features:

  • Remote access through a secure web console
  • Access to server vital product data (VPD)
  • Automatic notification and alerts
  • Continuous health monitoring and control
  • Email alerts
  • Syslog logging support
  • Enhanced user authority levels
  • Event logs that are time stamped, saved on the IMM, and that can be attached to email alerts
  • OS watchdogs
  • Remote configuration through Advanced Settings Utility (ASU)
  • Remote firmware updating
  • User authentication using a secure connection to a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server

IMM2 Advanced (as enabled using the Feature on Demand software license key using part number 90Y3901) adds the following features on top of those of IMM Standard:

  • 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 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 options.

Note: The IMM2 Advanced upgrade requires the IMM2 Standard upgrade.

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.
