Detailed technical overview of a IBM's System x3850 x5 Intel processor-based server.

The x3850 X5 server allows freedom of choice with extremely flexible configurations plus memory expansion capabilities. A modular building block design lets you customize your system for current needs while providing the ability to react to changing workloads. Expand your 4-socket, 64-DIMM x3850 X5 to 4 sockets and 96 DIMMs or up to 8 sockets and 128 DIMMs. Reallocate resources as your environment changes. The x3850 X5 meets your needs today, while providing an easy, cost-effective upgrade path to change your environment when you’re ready.

  • Each CPU needs at least one memory card Each memory card needs at least 2 DIMM’s DIMM’s must be installed in matching pairs Optimal memory performance requires 2 memory cards per CPU, with 4 DIMMs on each memory card, equal amounts of memory per card. If memory mirrored, then DIMM’s must match in sets of 4 eX5 Memory expansion works best with DIMM’s in sets of 4 eX5 Memory expansion works best with a ratio of 2/1 memory in host/expander Memory Size DIMM FRU Option (contains only 1 DIMM) 1GB DIMM (1Gb, x8, SR) 43X5044 44T1490 44T1480 2GB DIMM (1Gb, x8, DR) 43X5045 44T1491 44T1481 4GB DIMM (1Gb, x8, QR) 43X5055 46C7452 46C7448 8GB DIMM (2Gb, x8, QR) 43X5070 46C7488 46C7482 16GB DIMM (2Gb, x4, QR) 43X5071 46C7489 46C7483 Best not to mix ranks in a channel Memory Installation Card number DIMM Numbers 1 1 & 8 7 1 & 8 3 1 & 8 5 1 & 8 2 1 & 8 8 1 & 8 4 1 & 8 6 1 & 8 1 3 & 6 7 3 & 6 3 3 & 6 5 3 & 6 2 3 & 6 8 3 & 6 4 3 & 6 6 3 & 6 1 2 & 7 7 2 & 7 3 2 & 7 5 2 & 7 2 2 & 7 8 2 & 7 4 2 & 7 6 2 & 7 1 4 & 5 7 4 & 5 3 4 & 5 5 4 & 5 2 4 & 5 8 4 & 5 4 4 & 5 6 4 & 5

  • The OCe10102-N is a dual-port 10GbeE network adapter. It supports basic TCP/IP stateless offloads plus TCP Chimney Offload for Windows Server 2003 and 2008. One of the key benefits of this product is the option to enable support for FCoE or iSCSI in-the-field , when and were needed. There is no requirement to upgrade to a new adapter! FCoE or iSCSI support will be enabled with a license key that can be downloaded from emulex.com. With this pay-as-you-go model, you can standardize on OneConnect for 10GbE networking connectivity and then enable storage support at your own pace. Another key benefit is the OneCommand Manager application, which supports all of the networking and storage protocols (TCP/IP, TOE or TCP Chimney, FCoE and iSCSI). OneCommand Manager is based on Emulex’s market proven HBAnyware application that is managing over 7 million Emulex HBA ports.
