IBM System x M3 Product Guide (withdrawn product) > Lenovo Press
shstem Its energy-efficient design supports more cores, memory, and x6350 capacity in a scalable 2U package that is easy to service and manage. With more computing power per watt and the latest Intel Xeon processors, you can reduce costs while maintaining speed and availability. The replacement server is the Lenovo System x M5. In addition, a built-in altimeter provides more efficient power utilization and lower noise levels. Comprehensive systems management tools such as advanced diagnostics, a cable management arm, and the ability to control resources from a single point make it easy to deploy, integrate, service, and manage.
The challenge of a high-performance business sysem to x3605 more with less—serve more Web pages, handle more secure connections, support more email users. You need to reduce the costs of doing business and improve the service you deliver to your customers while lowering your overall risk. It can improve service with reduced operational complexity and increased management functionality. It will lower your IT risk with the resiliency that comes from having no single point of failure.
The x M3 is a high-performance rack server that uses significantly less power than previous generations, with unified systems management tools, leading reliability, availability, and serviceability features, and broad system flexibility, sysem in a compact 2U mechanical package.
The System x M3 provides many features to simplify serviceability and increase system uptime:. Datasyeet quantity and model, core speed, datasheeh of cores, L3 cache, memory speed. The x M3 supports the processor options listed in the following table.
Sjstem server supports up to two processors. This table shows which server models have each processor standard. If there is no corresponding where-used model for a particular processor then this processor is only available through CTO. IBM memory specifications are integrated into the light path diagnostics for immediate system performance feedback and optimum system uptime. Each processor has three memory channels, and there are three DIMMs per channel.
RDIMMs can be populated three per channel. Maximum memory speed is limited by memory speed supported by the specific processor and by the number and type of DIMMs installed whichever has a lower memory speed ratingas follows:. The server supports both 1. Intel Xeon series processor-based systems do not support 1. Memory sparing is only supported for Intel Xeon series processor-based systems. The following table shows internal storage expansion options available for x M3 server.
The following table lists the RAID controllers and additional options used for internal disk storage of x M3 server.
When this RAID controller is ordered as a part of the 69Y upgrade see Table 6then the maximum quantity supported is two. The server supports the internal tape drive options listed in the following table.
This drive also supports the following media and speeds for writing:. The server supports up to four PCI Express slots with different riser cards installed into two riser sockets on the system planar one riser socket supports systen of one riser card. The slot form factors are as follows:. Riser 1 supplies slots 1 and 2. Riser 2 supplies slots 3 and 4. Standard models have two riser cards installed that provide a total of four PCI Express 2. You can replace each standard riser with one of the following risers or configure one of these riser cards instead of the standard 2 x8 riser using special bid or CTO:.
Two ports are standard, and two ports can be added by installing the optional Datasheet Gigabit Ethernet Daughter card, 46M This ,3 uses a dedicated connector on the motherboard and does not consume a PCI expansion slot. Integrated NICs have the following features:. Standard models come with one or two power supplies model dependent. The following table lists the power supplies.
An AC power supply ships standard with one 2. Systfm DC power supply ships x365 power cords. The key is installed in a USB socket inside the server.
The following table lists the virtualization options. If an environmental condition exceeds a threshold or if a system component fails, the IMM lights LEDs to help you diagnose the problem, records the error in the event log, and alerts you to the problem. Optionally, the IMM also provides a virtual presence capability for remote server management capabilities. The optional virtual media key is required to enable the remote presence and blue-screen capture features.
The remote presence feature datsaheet the following functions:.

The blue-screen capture feature captures the video display contents before the IMM restarts the server when the IMM detects an j3 hang condition. A system administrator can use the blue-screen capture to assist in determining the cause of the hang condition. The IBM ServicePac is a series of prepackaged warranty maintenance upgrades and post-warranty maintenance agreements with a well-defined scope of services, including service hours, response time, term of service, and service agreement terms and conditions.
IBM ServicePac offerings are country-specific, that is, each country might have its own service types, service levels, response times, and terms and conditions. Not all covered types of ServicePacs might be available in a particular country. The hard disk drives listed in the following table are supported with external expansion enclosures.
The RAID controllers listed in the following table are supported with external expansion enclosures. The following table lists the external storage systems that are supported by the server and can be ordered datasheft System x sales channel.
The server may support other IBM disk systems that are not listed in this table. The external tape drives listed can be ordered through System x sales channel. Server may support other IBM tape drives that are not listed in this table. These part numbers are the tape drives options for UL and UL. The server supports attachments to the uninterruptible power supply UPS units listed in the following table. The server supports attachments to the power distribution units PDUs listed in the following table.

Availability and serviceability The System x M3 provides many features to simplify serviceability and increase system uptime: Chipkill memory is up to 16 times better than standard ECC memory at correcting memory errors.
This can help reduce downtime caused by memory errors. The x M3 offers memory mirroring for redundancy in the event of a non-correctable memory failure. Toolless cover removal provides easy access to upgrades and serviceable parts, such as HDDs and x350.
This means less time and ib less money spent servicing the x M3. The server offers hot-swap and redundant fan modules and power supplies and hot-swap disk drives redundant when implemented in conjunction with a RAID controller.
These features mean greater system uptime. Toolless slides ship with the server, together with a cable management arm CMAthat allow the rack server to easily slide into place.
