  • 2. STG Technical Conferences 2009 Three 19-inch Rack Sizes (Power Systems) “Standard” 19-inch racks 2m 1.8m 1.3m 42U 36U 25U Note the term “standard” can be wildly misleading when looking across vendors. Though the width of 19” between holes in the vertical support posts is standard, many other aspects follow guidelines/standards which are open to considerable differences in interpretation. 3 Racking Your Power System … Without Aspirin © 2009 IBM Corporation STG Technical Conferences 2009 Agenda • Racking 19-inch IBM System Units: 520, 550, 560, 570 • Racking 19-inch IBM I/O Drawers : – With PCI slots: #5802, #5790, #5796, #0595, #0588, #5294/96, #5094/96 – Disk only drawer: #5786, #5886 • IBM Power System 19-inch Racks 1.8m, 2m, 1.3m • IBM Rack Options • IBM Power Distribution Units (PDU) #7188, #7109 • IBM Rack UPS • IBM Tape and racks • Nuts & bolts • Using different IBM or OEM Racks 4 Racking Your Power System … Without Aspirin © 2009 IBM Corporation 2

Almost zero requests for footprint conversions have been received for either POWER5 550 or POWER6 550. Therefore IBM has not created the ordering/shipping/billing structure to do such a conversion and has no plans at this time to create this structure. 6 Racking Your Power System … Without Aspirin © 2009 IBM Corporation 3

What about vice versa? A: Yes, but The physical rack frame of the 7014-Txx/#055x (Power), 9308 (System x) and 2101 (TotalStorage) is identical. The equipment will fit into the rack. But there are differences in the rack options offered due to different value propositions of each product line. These differences are reflected in different names of the same physical feature, different features, different ordering rules, different heights, different prices, different PDUs, different options, etc. And the racks have been tested with different combinations of hardware. If you want to insert a Power System in a 9308 or 2101; AAS/WTAAS or eConfig does not recognize this and does not offer any planning assistance. The customer/sales team must provide the planning expertise. Things to consider include: - PDUs can be different and support different voltage/amperages. Power cords from server equipment to the PDU is probably the same (especially if Power System, System p and System i), but should be checked. -Standard IBM manufacturing processes do not insert Power Systems into non-Power Systems rack before shipping out. Make sure the IBM service organization is aware of what you are doing and agrees IN ADVANCE to support the configuration. The best time to resolve such questions is before a service call is needed. Though IBM Service should have no problem, there can be implications to airflow (cooling), equipment placement (customer/service safety), harmonic vibration, etc depending on what else is installed in the rack. IBM Service has the right to not provide support if they feel there are potential safety, functional or reliability concerns. 44 Racking Your Power System … Without Aspirin © 2009 IBM Corporation 22
  • 23. STG Technical Conferences 2009 Q: Can I put my Power Systems equipment in a System x™ “non-enterprise” rack instead of a Power Systems rack? A: Probably, but The physical rack frame of these racks is not identical. They are usually narrower and lighter weight. There are other differences in the rack options offered. These racks have not been tested with Power Systems nor with different combinations of hardware likely to have been ordered with the racks. Make sure the IBM service organization is aware of what you are doing and agrees IN ADVANCE to support the configuration. The best time to resolve such questions is before a service call is needed. Though IBM Service should have no problem, there can be implications to airflow (cooling), equipment placement (customer/service safety), harmonic vibration, etc depending on what else is installed in the rack. IBM Service has the right to not provide support if they feel there are potential safety, functional or reliability concerns. Note also that these racks are too narrow for “side pockets” where PDUs can reside without taking up 1 U of space. However, these racks are narrow enough to fit on a 2-foot floor tile without overlapping. 45 Racking Your Power System … Without Aspirin © 2009 IBM Corporation STG Technical Conferences 2009 Q: Can I put my IBM equipment in an OEM rack? A: Yes, but…. Recommend contacting IBM Service BEFORE doing this. Though they will probably support this configuration, key considerations include: Depth: The IBM 055x & 7014 racks all have a depth of 28 inches between the front and back vertical supports. Other vendors may have different depths. - POWER6 520/550 has adjustable depth rails, but POWER5 520/550 originally did not but later changed to a rail design which was had adjustable depth capability. - POWER5 570 is designed for the #0551/3 & 7014 rack. There are important cabling considerations for connecting multiple processor drawers together. - POWER6 560/570 is a little more flexible for cabling than POWER5 570, but care must be taken to ensure it will work. - I/O: Newer I/O drawers come with adjustable depth rails. #0595 adjusts from approximately 26 to 29 inches. #0588 or #0578 were designed for the IBM #055x 28-inch depth rack and do not fit other depths. #5790 fits inside an enclosure which has rails. #7311 enclosure has fixed depth rails. #7307 enclosure has adjustable depth rails. #5802 has adjustable rails depth rails. Mounting holes: Other vendors may interpret the EIA 310-D hole standards in a differently than IBM. The vendor may or may not have adapters to accommodate the mounting hardware of other vendors. Even the OEM rack (rail) features IBM provides use the same mounting hole pattern as the IBM rack rails. THIS CAN BE A REAL HASSLE OR EVEN A SHOW STOPPER. General: The 19-inch rack must have the physical strength for what you are planning. Operator/service personnel safety, accessibility, cooling, electromagnetic interference, harmonic vibration, etc. must be considered. Because of these considerations, it is recommended that IBM Service be consulted in advance. IBM can refuse to service the equipment and warranties can be voided if they believe there are likely to be problems. This can even happen after initially accepting the configuration if additional information becomes available. No Configurator: Also be aware that if you rack IBM servers outside of an #055x or 7014, AAS/WTAAS or eConfig does not offer any planning assistance. The customer/sales team must provide the planning expertise. Things to consider include: anti-tip plates, doors with adequate airflow capabilities, PDUs, cable management, weight, etc. 46 Racking Your Power System … Without Aspirin © 2009 IBM Corporation 23
  • 24. STG Technical Conferences 2009 Q: What do IBM Service Guidelines Say About non-IBM Racks? A: IBM System i5 is designed to be installed in industry-standard EIA racks. The following resources provide details about installation in either non-IBM racks or in IBM racks not specifically listed as 'supported' in marketing materials. The customer should use these resources, and work with their seller (either IBM or Business Partner) to assess whether the proposed rack is acceptable for the proposed purpose, and to order the materials necessary to mount their system in a particular rack. It is important to consider that IBM Service's involvement in implementing any solution not specifically supported by IBM's published marketing materials is considered a billable service. This includes consultation on implementing solutions involving non-IBM racks or IBM racks which are not specifically listed as 'supported' in the marketing materials for the system in question. The rack must meet EIA industry standards, and it must meet the technical requirements set out in the eServer Information Center (http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/eserver/v1r2s/en_US/index.htm) in the Non-IBM Rack Specifications of the Planning section of the InfoCenter. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that these specifications are met. Planning in advance, doing one's "homework" and making sure all technical and safety requirements are met are the key to ensuring the resulting solution can be maintained safely and, therefore, supported by IBM service. The IBM service representative and Field Manager responsible for the account in question should assess the proposed scenario based on the information above and based on the customer's assurance that the rack meets EIA industry standards and other technical and safety requirements as specified in the Information Center documentation. In addition, the device must be mounted using mounting hardware and rails engineered to meet or exceed the specifications for the rails and mounting hardware normally provided by IBM for the purpose of mounting the system in a rack. It is important to understand that for customer set up systems (CSU) such as the model 520, any IBM installation/set up activity related to a CSU device is for fee only. The device is designed/priced for customer set up/installation. So the customer should install these CSU devices whether it is installed as a desk-side or rack-mount system, unless the customer has agreed to pay IBM a fee to install/set up the system. If the customer is willing to pay IBM for a technical assessment of the rack, and technical assistance is required, contact the installation planning focal point for the country or area. 47 Racking Your Power System … Without Aspirin © 2009 IBM Corporation STG Technical Conferences 2009 Q: What about exiting cables overhead vs below-floor? A: Officially all cabling from the rack exists from the bottom, but…. It’s important to understand that “IBM Support” of a specific configuration can have different a meaning to different IBMers depending on who is asking and in what context. The IBM Development team would say, “ought to work fine, but we didn’t test and certify an overhead cable exit and therefore not supported.” IBM Service organization might hear only the “Development didn’t test and doesn’t support” statement. Recommend contacting IBM Service BEFORE doing this. Though they will probably support this configuration, it’s better to have the discussion before installation. IBM Service is the group who will agree to support (or not support) the hardware even if cabled overhead (or not agree). So given you understand the above: -- There is a removable plate at the top rear of the 7014-T00/T42/B42 and #0551/0553 racks which will physically provide a nice exit location for cables out of the top of the rack. The plate was not originally designed for this purpose, but it works fine. A service engineer can remove the plate (billable time). -- All signal-carrying copper cables emit a small amount of radiation (law of physics) unless really well shielded. Running cables along the real floor and under the raised floor will reduce overall electro-magnetic radiation levels (from small to smaller). Thus going overhead loses some of that shielding. Most service organizations would agree it is ok for overhead, but some might not support the server configured in this fashion. 48 Racking Your Power System … Without Aspirin © 2009 IBM Corporation 24

Notes: Performance is in Internal Throughput Rate (ITR) ratio based on measurements and projections using standard IBM benchmarks in a controlled environment. The actual throughput that any user will experience will vary depending upon considerations such as the amount of multiprogramming in the user's job stream, the I/O configuration, the storage configuration, and the workload processed. Therefore, no assurance can be given that an individual user will achieve throughput improvements equivalent to the performance ratios stated here.

All customer examples cited or described in this presentation are presented as illustrations of the manner in which some customers have used IBM products and the results they may have achieved. Actual environmental costs and performance characteristics will vary depending on individual customer configurations and conditions. This publication was produced in the United States.
