PowerVM Editions (Advanced Power Virtualization) (Optional)

The IBM Flex System p270 Compute Node supports PowerVM technology. The p270 is designed to make it more affordable to consolidate multiple independent applications on a single ITE server using the same proven virtualization technologies offered on IBM Power servers.

The p270 supports three leading-edge virtualization technologies: PowerVM Express Edition (#5225), PowerVM Standard Edition (#5227), and PowerVM EE for Small Server (#EC21).

  • PowerVM Express Edition supports up to three partitions per system (VIOS, AIX, Linux, or IBM i) which share processors and I/O. No hardware management console (HMC) is required or supported. It allows users to try out the Integrated Virtualization Manager (IVM) and the Virtual I/O Server (VIOS), which they would not get with an HMC.
  • PowerVM Standard Edition makes the p270 an ideal platform for consolidation of AIX, Linux, and IBM i operating system applications, designed to help clients reduce infrastructure complexity and cost. Offering an intuitive, web-based interface for managing virtualization within a single compute node, the IVM component of VIOS allows the small business IT manager to quickly and easily set up and manage logical partitions (LPARs). It also enables Virtual I/O and Virtual Ethernet so that storage and communications adapters can be shared among all the LPARs running on the p270. Ultimately, IBM Micro-Partitioning technology allows each processor core to be subdivided into as many as 10 virtual servers. And because the p270 is built with POWER7+ technology, other advanced virtualization functions such as Shared Dedicated Capacity may be exploited.
  • PowerVM EE for Small Server includes all the features of PowerVM Standard Edition plus a capability called Live Partition Mobility. Live Partition Mobility allows for the movement of a running AIX, IBM i 7.1, or Linux partition from one POWER7 or POWER7+ processor-based server to another. Designed to have no application downtime, Live Partition Mobility could result in better system utilization, improved application availability, and potential energy savings. With Live Partition Mobility, planned application downtime due to regular server maintenance can be a thing of the past. Software Maintenance for Virtual I/O Server (577x-PVE) must be purchased with VIOS (5765-PVE). PowerVM EE for Small Server must be purchased separately.

Note: PowerVM Express Edition, PowerVM Standard Edition, and PowerVM EE for Small Server are optional when running AIX or Linux with Build-To-Order Indicator (#EFD9). One of the three PowerVM Editions is required when running the IBM i operating system on the p270 with Build-To-Order Indicator (#EFD9).

Capacity Backup (CBU) Support for IBM i on the IBM Flex System p270 Compute Node

The CBU designation can help meet your requirements for use of a second system as backup, high availability, and disaster recovery. It enables you to temporarily transfer IBM i processor entitlements and IBM i user entitlements purchased for a primary machine to a secondary CBU system. Temporarily transferring these resources, instead of purchasing them for a secondary system, may result in significant savings.

The CBU specify feature 4898 for the IBM Flex System p270 Compute Node (7954-24X) is available as part of a new compute node purchase. This CBU feature cannot be added to an existing compute node.

Certain system prerequisites must be met, and system registration and approval is required before the CBU specify feature can be applied on a new server.

Standard IBM i terms and conditions do not allow either IBM i processor entitlements or IBM i user entitlements to be transferred permanently or temporarily. These entitlements remain with the machine for which they were ordered. When you register the association between a primary and on-order CBU system, you must agree to certain terms and conditions regarding the temporary transfer. After a CBU system designation is approved and the system is installed, you can temporarily move your optional IBM i processor entitlement and user entitlements from the primary system to the CBU system for any purpose, provided the corresponding primary system processors are not being used concurrently for production purposes. The CBU system can therefore better support failover and role swapping for a full range of test, disaster recovery, and high availability scenarios. Temporary entitlement transfer means that the entitlement is a property transferred from the primary system to the CBU system, and may remain in use on the CBU as long as the registered primary and CBU systems are in deployment for the high availability or disaster recovery operation.

These systems have IBM i software licenses with an IBM i P05 or P10 processor group. The primary machine must be in the same enterprise and country as the CBU system.

Before you can temporarily transfer IBM i processor entitlements from the registered primary system, you must have more than one IBM i processor entitlement on the primary machine and at least one IBM i processor entitlement on the CBU server. You can then transfer any IBM i processor entitlements above the minimum one, assuming the total IBM i workload on the primary system does not require the IBM i entitlement that you want to transfer during the time of the transfer. During this temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal records of its total number of IBM i processor entitlements are not updated, and you may see IBM i license noncompliance warning messages from the CBU system. These warning messages in this situation do not mean you are not in compliance.

The p270 high availability options include PowerHA with Geographic Mirroring. You may also use Metro Mirror or Global Mirror replication solutions provided by the storage subsystem, and other third-party software replication packages.

Before you can temporarily transfer IBM i user entitlements, you must have more than five IBM i user entitlements on the p270 primary server and at least five IBM user entitlements on the CBU server. You can transfer optional entitlements (any IBM i user entitlements above the minimum five) from the primary to the CBU. The user entitlements transferred to the CBU may not be used concurrently on the primary server from which they were transferred. If the primary server is of a P10 processor group, then the primary server must have a minimum of 10 user entitlements and the optional user entitlements (those over the 10 required) may be transferred temporarily to the CBU. As a general principle of the CBU on i offering, temporary entitlement transfer cannot originate on the CBU.

For example, if you have a p270 as your primary system with two IBM i processor entitlements (one above the minimum) and 50 IBM i user entitlements (40 above the minimum), you can temporarily transfer up to one IBM i processor entitlement and up to 40 user entitlements. During this temporary transfer, the CBU system's internal records of its total number of IBM i processor and user entitlements are not updated, and you may see IBM i license noncompliance warning messages from the CBU system.

If your primary or CBU machine is sold or discontinued from use, any temporary entitlement transfers must be returned to the machine on which they were originally acquired.

Software requirements

The IBM Flex System p270 Compute Node server supports the AIX, Linux, and IBM i operating systems, providing the flexibility of using applications written for any one of the three. IBM has qualified two popular Linux distributions for use with the p270:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux for POWER
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for POWER

One or more of the following operating systems is required for an operational IBM Flex System p270 Compute Node:

If installing the AIX operating system (one of these):

  • AIX V5.3 Technology Level Support offering with the Service Extension
  • AIX V7.1 with the 7100-02 Technology Level and Service Pack 3, or later
  • AIX V6.1 with the 6100-08 Technology Level and Service Pack 3, or later

If installing the IBM i operating system:

  • IBM i 6.1 with i 6.1.1 machine code, or later
  • IBM i 7.1, or later

For more detailed information about IBM i support, refer to the IBM i Technology Updates at

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/ibmi/techupdates/hw

Note: VIOS is required with the IBM i operating system.

If installing VIOS:

  • VIOS 2.2.2.3

If installing the Linux operating system (one of these):

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 2 for POWER, with current maintenance updates available from SUSE to enable all planned functionality
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux for POWER 6.4, or later

Users should also update their systems with the latest Linux for POWER service and productivity tools from the IBM website

http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/lopdi ags/home.html

Note: For systems ordered with the Linux operating system, IBM ships the most current versions available from the distributor. If your hardware requires a different version of a Linux OS than that shipped by IBM, you must obtain it by downloading it from the Linux distributor's website. Information concerning access to a distributor's website is located on the product registration card delivered to you as part of your Linux OS order.

Processor is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A processor (commonly called a processor core or CPU) is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic units. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor. For programs eligible for sub-capacity licensing, a Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be acquired for all activated processors available for use in each partition (utilizing eligible partitioning technologies) where the program runs. A PoE must be acquired for all activated processor cores available for use on the server.

Limitations:

Solid-state memory cells have an intrinsic, finite number of write cycles that each cell can incur. As a result, each solid-state device has a maximum amount of write cycles it can be subjected to, documented as TBW (Total Bytes Written). IBM is not responsible for replacement of hardware that has reached the maximum guaranteed number of write cycles. This limit may be revealed as the device failing to communicate to system-generated commands or become incapable of being written to.
