IBM EXP24S Power System I/O Expansion Drawer 5887 Disk Drive

Brand: IBM
Model Number: EXP24S-5887

IBM EXP24S is a 5887 SFF Gen-2 IO Disk Expansion Drawer with 24 hot swap SFF SAS Hard Disk Drive or SSD slots of 2.5-inch form factor, using 2 EIA of rack space. The EXP24S 5887 includes redundant AC power supplies and two power cords. The IBM EXP24S Expansion drawer uses 5887 feature code and is supported on the following IBM Power systems: 8202-E4B, 8202-E4C, 8202-E4D, 8205-E6B, 8205-E6C, 8205-E6D, 8231-E1C, 8231-E1D, 8231-E2B, 8231-E2C, 8231-E2D, 8233-E8B, 8236-E8C, 8247-21L, 8247-22L, 8284-22A, 8286-41A, 8286-42A, 8408-44E, 8408-E8D, 8408-E8E, 9080-MHE, 9080-MME, 9109-RMD, 9117-MMB, 9117-MMC, 9117-MMD, 9119-FHB, 9119-MHE, 9119-MME, 9179-MHB, 9179-MHC, 9179-MHD
 
The IBM EXP24S 5887 Power System I/O expansion drawer can be used with four sets of 6 bays, two sets of 12 bays or one set of 24 bays for AIX, Linux or VIOS configurations. IBM i Power system workloads can use the EXP24S as one set of 24 bays. The EXP24S 5887 disk expansion drawer SAS ports are attached to SAS controllers which can be a SAS PCI-X or PCIe adapter or pair of adapters. The EXP24S 5887 I/O expansion drawer can also be attached to an imbedded SAS controller in a server with an imbedded SAS port. Attachment between the SAS controller and the EXP24S SAS ports is via the appropriate SAS Y or X cables. The IBM Power EXP24S 5887 I/O expansion drawer 5887 rails have some adjustability for depth - 25.25 to 29.875 inches.

The 5887 EXP24S SAS HDD/SSD Expansion Drawer is attached to SAS ports on either a PCIe SAS adapter located in the server or to the SAS ports on the rear of the server. Two SAS ports on the rear of the server are enabled with the expanded-function storage backplane with dual IOA support. One EXP24S drawer in mode 1 can be attached to the two SAS ports on the rear of the server using three meter SAS YO cables such as feature ECBT or ECBU. Either SSDs or HDDs can be placed in this drawer, but SSDs and HDDs cannot be mixed in this drawer.

The feature 5887 EXP24S drawer can be attached to SAS ports of PCIe SAS adapters using SAS YO or X cables. Up to 14 EXP24S drawers can be attached. Either SSDs or HDDs can be placed in the drawer, depending on the capabilities of the adapter running the bays. Note that longer distance SAS cables are thicker and can fill the Cable Management Arm more quickly.

Clients migrating from earlier generation servers may have been using I/O drawers such as the GX++ attached feature 5802 or 5877 PCIe 12X I/O Drawers with PCIe Gen 1 slots. Though most PCIe adapters in the feature 5802 or 5877 drawers can be moved to this server, and its disk drives converted and moved to the feature 5887 EXP24S drawer, the feature 5802 and 5877 drawers are not supported on newer Power Systems POWER8 based servers.
