The IBM Power10 9080-HEX Model E1080 supports up to 4,032 direct attached dirives via 168 IBM EXP24SX expansion drawers, each drawer supports up to 24 hot-swap SFF-2 SAS HDDs or SSDs in two EIA of rack space,

PCIe I/O drawer support a maximum of 16 EXP24SX.

IBM i OS400 partitions configure the EXP24SX as one set of 24 bays (mode 1), whereas AIX, Linux, and VIOS partitions can configure the EXP24SX with four sets of 6 bays (mode 4), two sets of 12 bays (mode 2) or one set of 24 bays (mode 1).

Customers upgrading from older Power8 systems...

can migrate existing HDDs and SSDs from Power8 CEC or from within 5802 or 5803 12X-attached I/O expansion drawers (SFF-1 bays) by ordering new SFF-2 carrier trays for the drives and moving them to a IBM EXP24S drawer.

PCIe Slots: 

Each IBM Power10 9080-HEX Model E1080 system node has 8 PCIe slots for up to six PCIe Gen4 x16 or PCIe Gen5 x8 slots (Gen5 enables the maximum of 576 GB/s peak I/O bandwidth per node) and two PCIe Gen5 x8 I/O low-profile expansion slots.


Concurrent maintenance of PCIe adapter repair, add and removal is supported. 

PCIe Gen1, Gen2, Gen3, Gen4, and Gen5 adapter cards are all supported in the system node, including in Gen5 slots, but Gen5 PCIe adapter cards are not supported in I/O expansion drawer.

Additional PCIe slots can be expanded using a x16 slot to attach a six-slot expansion module in the I/O drawer, which holds two expansion modules that are attached to any two x16 PCIe slots of any nodes.


One USB 3.0 ports

Partitions (LPARs) and OS Requirements:
