IBM iSeries 9009-42A

"The new S924 - Highest security and reliability now Cloud enabled with integrated Virtualization capabilities."

The POWER9 scale-out family is the first set of entry servers that comes completely cloud enabled out of the box with integrated PowerVM Enterprise capabilities. Additionally, on-chip analytics and algorithms help clients run their workloads at an optimized processor frequency for performance and throughput. In combination with the DDR4 memory footprint of 4 TB, IBM provides systems that are unmatched by the competition in terms of memory scaling as well as the core to memory ratio needed for data-centric and in-memory workloads. Live Partition Mobility capabilities are built in, to cloud-enable your POWER9 infrastructure and help you migrate from previous Power Systems. Every new S924 also has the option of a temporary PowerVM license for your old server to support a seamless move of workloads to POWER9. The Power System S924 server has built-in security that can help you to be ready for current and future security threats.

The Power S924 supports two processor sockets, offering 8-core or 16-core typical 3.8 to 4.0 GHz (max), 10-core or 20-core typical 3.5 to 3.9 GHz (max), or 24-core typical 3.4 to 3.9 GHz (max) configurations in a 19-inch rack-mount, 4U (EIA units) drawer configuration. All the cores are active. The server supports a maximum of 32 DDR4 DIMM slots. Memory features supported are 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB, allowing for a maximum system memory of 4096 GB.

Summary of standard features for Power S924:

    • 12-core typical 3.4 to 3.9 GHz (max) POWER9 Processor (#EP1G)
  • High-performance Mbps DDR4 ECC memory
    • 16 GB (#EM62), 32 GB (#EM63), 64 GB (#EM64), or 128 GB (#EM65) memory features - different sizes/configurations run at different frequencies of 2133, 2400, and 2666 Mbps
    • Up to 4 TB of DDR4 memory with two Power Systems processors
    • Up to 2 TB of DDR4 memory with one Power Systems processor
  • Storage Backplane feature:
    • Base 12 SFF-3 Bays/RDX Bay.
    • Optionally, split the above SFF-3 bays and add a second integrated SAS controller without cache.
    • Expanded function 18 SFF-3 Bays/Dual IOA with Write Cache and Optional External SAS port.
    • Expanded function 12 SFF-3 Bays/RDX Bay/Dual IOA with Write Cache and Optional External SAS port.
