IBM EM8J 64GB DDR3 Memory 4x16GB CDIMMs Power8 9119 9080

The IBM EM8J Power8 Memory feature provides a total of 64GB of memory, composed of four 16GB 1600 MHz, 4GBIT DDR3 CDIMMs, requiring 4 empty CDIMM slots in a IBM Power8 processor module. The IBM EM8J 64GB (4X16GB) CDIMMs, 1600 MHz, 4GBIT DDR3 DRAM Power8 memory featureis supported in 9119-MHE, 9119-MME, 9080-MHE and 9080-MME Power8 servers. Each IBM Power8 server node has 32 CDIMM slots that support up to 8 TB of DDR4 memory or 4 TB of DDR3 memory per node, providing 32 TB maximum DDR4 memory in a four-node Power server or 16 TB of DDR3 IBM memory. IBM DDR3 and DDR4 memory technology features provide the same 1600MHz performance.

Each IBM Power system node must have at least half of the 32 memory slots always physically filled. Eight CDIMM slots are local to each of the four SCMs in the server, but SCMs and their cores have access to all the other memory in the Power server. When filling the other four memory slots in the SCM, a quantity of four CDIMMs must be used. The CDIMM slots of the SCMs must be either 50% or 100% filled. The system node (four SCMs) CDIMM slots can have 16, 20, 24, 28, or 32 CDIMMs physically installed. Each IBM Power memory feature has four CDIMMs and are ordered using a single memory feature code.
 
All CDIMMs must be identical on the same SCM, but a different SCM in the same system node can use a different memory feature. For example, one system node could technically use 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB memory features. IBM Power DDR3 memory and DDR4 memory features cannot be mixed on the same system node. With firmware 840, DDR3 and DDR4 memory cannot be mixed on the same multinode system. IBM Power memory activations are ordered separately from the physical memory and can be permanent or temporary. IBM Power memory activation features can be used for any size DDR3 or DDR4 memory features. IBM Power memory activations are not specific to a CDIMM, and apply to the total quantity on the server. The Power hypervisor determines what physical memory to use.
 
IBM Power Memory activation features include:
EMA5 1 GB Memory Activation (static)
EMA6 100 GB Memory Activations (static)
EMA7 100 GB Mobile Memory Activations
EMA9 100 GB Mobile Enabled Memory Activations (static or mobile)
EMB8 512 GB Memory Activations for Power IFL
EM8Y 8 TB activations (EMBA) ordered with 8 TB memory
EMB6 4 TB activations (EMB7) ordered with 4 TB memory
 
A minimum of 50% of the total physical memory capacity of a server must have permanent memory activations ordered for that server. For example, a server with a total of 8 TB of physical memory must have at least 4 TB of permanent memory activations ordered for that server. These activations can be static, mobile-enabled, mobile, or Power IFL. At least 25% must be static activations or Power IFL activations. For example, a server with a total of 8 TB physical memory must have at least 2 TB of static activations or Power IFL activations. The 50% minimum cannot be fulfilled using mobile activations ordered on a different server.
 
The minimum activations ordered with MES orders of additional physical memory features will depend on the existing total installed physical memory capacity and the existing total installed memory activation features. If you already have installed more than 50% activations for your existing system, then you can order less than 50% activations for the MES ordered memory. The resulting configuration after the MES order of physical memory and any MES activations must meet the same 50% and 25% minimum rules above.
 
For the best possible performance, it is generally recommended that memory be installed evenly across all system node drawers and all SCMs in the system. Balancing memory across the installed system planar cards enables memory access in a consistent manner and typically results in better performance for your configuration. Though maximum memory bandwidth is achieved by filling all the memory slots, plans for future memory additions should be taken into account when deciding which memory feature size to use at the time of initial system order. IBM Active Memory Expansion (AME) is an option that can increase the effective memory capacity of the system. See the Active Memory Expansion information later in this section.
 
Note:
Memory is offered with base memory configuration of 16 CDIMMs (4 memory features).
Initial Order minimum is equal to two identical features (4x64GB CDIMM) per processor drawer.
Minimum of 50% of Initial memory orders must be activated via memory activation feature #EMA5 and #EMA6 at the time of purchase.
MES order quantity can equal one memory feature (4 CDIMMs) per processor drawer.
Memory sizes can differ across CPU modules, but the eight CDIMM slots connected to the same processor module must be filled with identical CDIMMs.
CDIMMs must be evenly distributed across processor modules within a drawer, always filling up four or eight CDIMM slots per module, and balanced across drawers; placement order must take into account the number of drawers.
If memory is either removed and/or moved to another system, none of that memory carries with it any activations. All CoD activations remain with the system unless authorization to remove the activations is obtained from the CoD project office and installed.
