800 GB Mainstream NVMe U.2 SSD 4K for AIX/Linux (#EC7T/#EC7Q)

Mainstream 800 GB NVMe SFF U.2 SSD is a PCIe Gen4 drive. NVMe is a high-performance architecture and command protocol that can read and write flash memory. Compared to a SAS or SATA SSD, NVMe SSDs provide more read/write IOPS and larger throughput (GBps).

Feature #EC7T has the CCIN number of 59B7 and indicates usage by AIX, Linux, or VIOS in which the SSD is formatted in 4096 byte sectors. The SSD can be used in any U.2 15mm NVMe PCIe Gen4 x 4 interface in the system found in Power S924, S914, S922, H922, and H924 servers.

Feature #EC7Q has the CCIN number of 59B4 and indicates usage by AIX, Linux, or VIOS in which the SSD is formatted in 4096 byte sectors. The SSD can be used in any U.2 7mm NVMe PCIe Gen4 x 4 interface in the system found in Power E950 and E980 servers.

Mainstream 800 GB SSD formatted in 4096 byte sectors (4K) is rated at 2.4 drive writes per day (DWPD) calculated over a 5-year period for 100% (4K bytes or larger) random write workloads. Use for workloads within this rating are fully supported and will maintain high reliability and mean time between failures (MTBF).

The nature of the workload has a great impact on the maximum write capacity. If a high percentage of more sequentially oriented writes is used instead of random writes, the maximum write capacity will be larger. Writes past the maximum write capacity of the SSD will continue to work for some period of time, but perform much more slowly. Whether the application uses sequential or random reads from the device does not affect the life of the device. A Predictive Failure Analysis message will indicate that it is time to replace the SSD if enabled by the operating system and system administrator. Clients are recommended to monitor SMART log critical information via the appropriate OS utility to observe drive life remaining information. IBM NVMe SSD failures will be replaced during the standard warranty and maintenance period for SSDs that have not reached the maximum number of write cycles. SSDs that reach this limit may fail to operate according to specifications and must be replaced at the client's expense. Boot function is supported. Data redundancy on a failed SSD may be provided by OS mirroring or software RAID wherever applicable.

PCIe3 Crypto Coprocessor Gen3 4769 (#EJ35/#EJ37)

The 4769 PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor has a PCIe local-bus-compatible interface. The coprocessor holds a security-enabled subsystem module and batteries for backup power. The hardened encapsulated subsystem contains two sets of two 32-bit PowerPC 476FP reduced instruction set computer (RISC) processors running in lockstep with cross-checking to detect soft errors in the hardware. It also contains a separate service processor used to manage self-test and firmware updates; RAM; flash memory and battery-powered memory; secure time-of-day; cryptographic quality random number generator; Data Encryption Standard (DES); Triple Data Encryption Standard (Triple DES); and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES); Hash-Based Message Authentication Code (HMAC); Cipher-based Message Authentication Code (CMAC); MD5; multiple SHA hashing methods; modular-exponentiation hardware, such as Rivest-Shamir-Adleman (RSA) and Elliptic-curve cryptography (ECC); and full-duplex direct memory access (DMA) communications.

A security-enabled code-loading arrangement allows control program and application program loading, and refreshes after coprocessor installation in your server. IBM offers an embedded subsystem control program and a cryptographic application programming interface (API) that implements the IBM Common Cryptographic Architecture (CCA).

The IBM CCA Support Program can be accessed from the internet at no charge to the user. See the IBM CCA Basic Services Reference and Guide, which can be found at the IBM Cryptocards Library for a full explanation of the CCA API CEX7S / 4769 - CCA.

For details about future updates to the versions of operating systems that are supported by the 4769 PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor, see the IBM Cryptocards website.

Feature codes EJ35 and EJ37 are both features representing the same physical card with the same CCIN of C0AF. Different feature codes are used to indicate if a blind swap cassette is used and its type. Feature EJ35 indicates no blind swap cassette and can be ordered for S914, S924, S922, H924, H922, and E950 servers. Feature EJ37 indicates a Gen 3 blind swap cassette and can be ordered for S914, S924, S922, H924, H922, E950, and E980 servers.

Feature conversions

The existing components being replaced during a model or feature conversion become the property of IBM and must be returned.

Feature conversions are always implemented on a "quantity of one for quantity of one" basis. Multiple existing features may not be converted to a single new feature. Single existing features may not be converted to multiple new features.

The following conversions are available to clients:

Warranty period

To obtain copies of the IBM Statement of Limited Warranty, contact your reseller or IBM. An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to the full warranty period specified by IBM. An IBM part or feature that replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature are the same as those for the machine in which it is installed.

IBM Solid State Drive (SSD) and Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) devices identified in this document may have a maximum number of write cycles. IBM SDD and NVMe device failures will be replaced during standard warranty and maintenance period for devices that have not reached the maximum number of write cycles. Devices that reach this limit may fail to operate according to specifications and must be replaced at the client's expense.
