IBM Systems & Technology Group Education & Sales Enablement © 2011 IBM Corporation 52 IBM Active Energy Manager > Measure/Trend Power Consumption (Phase 1)  Determine the power (watts) is being consumed now  Why assume label power?  Power meter (internal) or PDU with watt meter (external) > Cap or Allocate Power Correctly (Phase 2)  Power consumed is a function of the HW options, OS, Apps and App footprint application and the application data footprint  Allocate power based on past history using power measurements: −to match the need of each server −to match the P/T limits of the data center > Reduce power consumed (Phase 3)  CPUs can reduce power in periods of low utilization  Save power costs Three Fundamentals of Power Management > A view of power consumption across the data center (units of hours, weeks, months) using your applications and workloads > Reducing your power/thermal requirements (saving infrastructure costs – ex. HVAC, UPS, generators) > Reducing power consumption during periods of low utilization (saving power costs – ex. utility company) Active Energy Manager will Provide:

  54. 54. IBM Systems & Technology Group Education & Sales Enablement © 2011 IBM Corporation 56 IMM (Integrated Management Module) Remote control to manage, monitor, and troubleshoot from any corner of the world. Key Features Customer Benefits Single chip on each server  Provide diagnostics, virtual presence and remote control to manage, monitor, troubleshoot and repair from any corner of the world  Manage servers remotely, in a secure environment independent of operating system state  Single administrator can configure and deploy server from bare metal to operating system boot  Support of new altimeter on x3550 M3 and x3650 M3 which can reduce power consumed by fans Unified code base across all IMM systems  One firmware stack for IMM simplifies images  Easier for system administrators to manage large group of diverse systems Standards based alerting  IMM with IBM Systems Director provide secure alerts and status, helping to reduce unplanned outages  Standards based alerting enables upward integration into wide variety of enterprise management environments “out of the box” The IMM is a single chip on each new generation server which combines the function of the previous BMC and RSA-II card, a video controller, remote presence and remote disk. Remote presence is a priced feature ($299US) for rack and iDataPlex servers and is enabled by simply inserting a hardware key. IMM is common hardware with a single IMM firmware across all new platforms. It requires no special IBM drivers and is configurable both in- and out-of-band. Open standards (CIM and WS-MAN) used for alerts and command enable out-of-the box integration.

IBM Systems & Technology Group Education & Sales Enablement © 2011 IBM Corporation 57 UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) Single consistent system level code stack with advanced setup and configuration Key Features Customer Benefits Simplified error handling  No more cryptic event logs and reduction of out date errors in BIOS  Beep codes now covered completely by light path diagnostics Easier configuration and management  Ability to configure machines completely via command scripts remotely with Advance Settings Utility  In-band and out-of-band firmware update via the Integrated Management Module  Remote configuration which lowers TCO by reducing upgrade downtime and making platforms easier to manage Abilities beyond legacy BIOS  No limits on number of adapter cards – no more 1801 resource errors (important to VMware customers)  Ability to move adapter configuration to main UEFI configuration  Ability to run in 64-bit native mode  Complete support for new and legacy operating systems – Windows 2008 supported in UEFI mode today – Other operating systems fully supported in legacy BIOS mode UEFI replaces legacy BIOS providing a modern, well defined environment for booting an operating system and running pre-boot applications. It is fully backwards compatible with legacy BIOS and provides additional functionality, a better user interface and easier management. UEFI settings can be managed both in-band and out-of-band. With UEFI “beep codes” are eliminated and covered completely by light path diagnostics.
