Memory options

The ThinkServer RD450 supports DDR4 memory. DDR4 memory offers many benefits over older generation DDR3 memory. DDR4 operates at a lower voltage than DDR3L (1.2V vs. 1.5V) and as a result, offers significant power savings. In addition, DDR4 memory has higher memory transfer speeds of up to 2133 MT/s, depending on the memory configuration.

Lenovo offers Registered DIMMs (RDIMM) and Load Reduced DIMMs (LR-DIMM) that use a buffer to reduce memory bus loading, which enables greater memory capacities to be achieved.

The following table lists the DDR4 memory options and ordering information.

2400 MHz memory support: the RD450 with Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors supports both 2133 MHz and 2400 MHz memory options, however the 2400 MHz memory DIMMs will operate at speeds up to 2133 MHz.

* Maximum supported with 1 processor / 2 processors installed

The server supports up to 8 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 supported per channel. The server supports up to 1024 GB of memory at speeds up to 2133 MHz when fully populated. The actual memory speed in the system is determined as the lowest of the memory speed that is supported by the specific CPU or the maximum operating speeds for the memory configuration that is based on the number of DIMMs per channel.

ThinkServer engineering tested and validated system designs that support memory speeds beyond Intel’s original plan, which provides benefits for workloads that require memory speed and density. Lenovo ThinkServer memory is fully supported up to the rated speeds that are listed in the following table.

Table 4. Memory maximums

2 DPC 2133 MHz 512 GB (16x 32 GB) 2133 MHz 1024 GB (16x 64 GB)

Protection against data loss is provided through the following memory RAS features: ECC, Patrol and Demand Scrubbing, Sparing, Mirroring, and Lockstep Mode.

Configuration Guidelines

Memory can be configured to meet various needs and workloads subject to the following general rules:

  • Mixing memory type (RDIMM, LRDIMM) is not supported.
  • Mixing memory speeds (2400 MHz and 2133 MHz) is supported. 2400 MHz memory will operate at most at 2133 MHz.
  • DIMM capacities and rank can be mixed.

When you are populating for the various RAS modes the following rules apply:

  • If memory mirroring or lockstep is used, DIMMs must be installed in pairs (minimum of one pair per each CPU), and both DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type, size, and rank.
  • If memory sparing is used, one rank of a DIMM in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory; therefore, Single Rank DIMMs cannot be used. DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type, size, and rank.

Memory Optimization

The memory subsystem can be optimized for various factors, including performance, capacity, or power consumption. Refer to the following guidelines when you are selecting memory options:

  • Guidelines for maximum memory performance:
    • Use all available memory channels (four per processor, eight total per system).
    • Use identical DIMM populations in size and speed across channels.
    • Populate both processors with equal amounts of memory.
    • Use the same number of ranks that are populated per channel.
    • Have at least two ranks available on each channel.
  • Guidelines for lowest memory power consumption:
    • Use fewer, higher capacity DIMMs. For example, a 8x 16 GB DIMM configuration often has lower power requirements than that of a 16x 8 GB DIMM configuration.
    • Populating more DIMMs per channel and the use of less channels (opposite of the previous guidance) reduces overall system power, but at the cost of significant performance reduction.

The following table provides guidelines for selecting memory configurations that are based on performance or capacity. For example, to achieve optimal 2133 MHz performance at a specific capacity, populate up to 16 DIMMs (up to 8 per CPU). To achieve the maximum memory capacity with the highest performance, populate up to 16 sockets with LRDIMMs.

Models with 2.5-inch drives support an AnyRAID adapter, which is installed on a dedicated slot on the drive backplane. Supported controllers are as follows:

  • AnyRAID 110i offers a low-cost solution for light workloads with limited users. It supports 6 GB SATA drives with RAID 0/1/10 with optional RAID 5. The AnyRAID 110i is a pass-through card that routes the embedded controller in the Intel C610 PCH to the backplane. Supports SATA drives only. RAID support only with 6 drives; remaining 2 drives (if installed) must be configured as single drives (AHCI mode).
  • AnyRAID 510i is an IOC-based RAID card that offers an affordable hardware controller that delivers performance and reliability. It supports 6 GB SAS & SATA drives and RAID 0/1/10 with optional RAID 5/50. Maximum 8 drives.
  • AnyRAID 720i is a RoC-based 12Gb SAS/SATA controller that offers advanced RAID configurations, protection, and software. It supports RAID 0/1/5/6/10/50/60 with optional 1 GB cache (without flash), or 1 GB, 2 GB or 4 GB cache each with CacheVault (flash), CacheCade, and FastPath support. Maximum 8 drives.
  • AnyRAID 720ix is similar to the 720i but also includes a SAS Expander to support up to 24 drives. It is a 12 GB SAS/SATA controller with support for RAID 0/1/5/6/10/50/60. Cache is required, either 1 GB cache (without flash), or 1 GB, 2GB or 4GB cache each with CacheVault (flash), CacheCade, and FastPath support.

Note: If the server configuration includes an internal LTO6 tape drive, the AnyRAID 720ix is required.

Models with 3.5-inch drives support either an embedded controller or a PCIe RAID adapter. Supported controllers are as follows:

  • Embedded RAID 110i controller in the Intel C610 PCH routed via cable to the backplane. Supports SATA drives only. RAID support only with 6 drives; remaining 2 drives (if installed) must be configured as single drives (AHCI mode).
  • RAID 500 adapter supporting RAID 0/1/10 with optional RAID 5/50
  • RAID 710 adapter supporting RAID 0/1/5/6/10/50/60 with 1 GB cache standard. Optional CacheVault and CacheCade support.

Integrated virtualization

The RD450 offers an optional SD Card solution for operating systems. See the SD Card storage options section for information.

Systems management

A significant factor in the total cost of a server’s ownership is the processes that are used for administering the system hardware, software, and support over the life of the server. Lenovo’s ThinkServer system management offerings are based on industry standards, which enable integration into existing IT environments. Lenovo’s tools emphasize provisioning and operational management, which is a large portion of the system cost. Optional upgrades provide more management capabilities to optimize performance and usage of the servers.

Deployment

Embedded within every Lenovo next-generation ThinkServer system, ThinkServer Deployment Manager is a tools suite that provides a complete set of provisioning capabilities from a single interface. ThinkServer Deployment Manager automates many of the tasks that are associated with server provisioning, including hardware configuration, operating system deployment, device driver (for operating system installation), firmware updates, and server cloning. Because ThinkServer Deployment Manager is integrated into the UEFI pre-boot environment, the tools operate independently of the server and are available regardless of system’s operational state. Formatting a system drive or reinstalling the operating system does not remove the tools, and there are no CDs or DVDs to retrieve or store, which affects user experience or productivity.

Remote Systems Management

ThinkServer System Manager (TSM) is Lenovo’s integrated systems management technology is standard on all next-generation ThinkServer systems. TSM operates independently of the server. It provides hardware-based, out-of-band remote access and management to ThinkServer systems, regardless of the server’s power state or the condition of the operating system.

TSM is a fully featured management solution that is built on open industry standards that can help reduce related IT expenses by increasing a server administrator’s productivity. TSM provides important health and status information to systems administrators. It also enables administrators to remotely perform most functions that otherwise require a visit to the server.

TSM can be used as part of any server systems management infrastructure and is well-suited for customers who are deploying servers in remote branches, limited-access data centers, and where one-on one remote-control capability is required. Lenovo’s design advancements address key system management concerns. In particular, TSM is a low-cost solution that supports heterogeneous environments, provides full remote management capability, and supports remote deployment.

TSM offers the following choices in management Ethernet connections that are configurable in BIOS or the TSM:

  • Shared:
    • Port zero on any Ethernet AnyFabric mezzanine card is supported
    • VLANs supported to provide separation between in-band network and TSM
    • 10 Mbps maximum TSM bandwidth on 1 GbE mezzanine cards
    • 100 Mbps maximum TSM bandwidth on 10 GbE mezzanine cards
  • Dedicated:
    • Uses separate network port
    • Provides complete physical separation between Mezzanine 0 and TSM
    • 1 Gbps maximum TSM bandwidth

TSM provides the following key features:

  • Remote server management through the following industry standard interfaces:
    • Secure HTML5 web browser GUI that is suitable for today’s mobile devices and tablets
    • IPMI 2.0
    • DCMI 1.0
    • WS-MAN
    • SMASH-CLP
    • SNMP v3 (Gets only)
  • A PowerShell CLI provides increased flexibility and scripting capabilities
  • Automatic out-of-band notification and alerts from:
    • SNMP Traps
    • SMTP (email)
    • CIM indications
  • Configurable via web and PowerShell CLI, IPMI, WS-Man, and SMASH-CLI interfaces

ThinkServer System Manager Premium, which is available as an optional hardware upgrade key, enables the following advanced features:

  • A remote console that provides complete remote control of the server. A video viewer enables graphical console, keyboard, and mouse redirection of the server.
  • Remote media capability that enables the attachment of local CD-ROMs, DVD-ROMs, USB mass storage devices, ISO images, and IMG images (which are created from local folders) to the remote server.
  • Support for power monitoring and management with the separately available ThinkServer Energy Manager tool. Energy Manager is a stand-alone, web-based, power management console that enables you to observe, plan, and manage server power usage to decrease power and cooling needs, which helps to lower your total cost of ownership. Energy Manager uses TSM to capture real-time power and temperature data from the ThinkServer system, which analyzes the data to optimize server power consumption and workload placement and provides controls to limit the maximum server power that is used.

The following table lists ThinkServer System Manager Premium ordering information.

ThinkServer Energy Manager

Lenovo ThinkServer Energy Manager (TEM) provides power management for servers, which enables server density and data center capacity to be increased through use of power capping.

TEM is an agent-less, web-based console that tracks and analyzes real-time power usage and thermal data for servers and other supported devices in the data center. With this data, administrators can plan and manage server power and cooling. By using built-in intelligence, TEM identifies power usage trends, ideal power settings, and cooling analysis so that you can develop power-saving usage policies that adjust server power caps that are based on server utilization, business conditions, and power usage trends. When a user-defined power or temperature threshold is reached, an alert can be generated to inform you of the event. An emergency feature can automatically help maintain business continuity; when power outages or temperature events occur, TEM can dynamically cap power to shed load and distribute remaining power to servers that are prioritizing business-critical workloads.

With the ability to monitor, analyze, and control the power and cooling of Lenovo and non-Lenovo servers, TEM enables you to take control of power management and reduce operational costs.

A single TEM license is included with all next-generation servers with TSM Premium. Licenses are available for next-generation servers without TSM, selected fourth generation ThinkServer systems, and certain third-party servers via Node License Packs, as shown in the following table. Users of Lenovo Smart Grid can upgrade to TEM at no charge.
