Overview

The BladeCenter® QS21 is based on the innovative Cell Broadband Engine (Cell/B.E.) processor, providing a new level of parallelism and performance to targeted workloads.

The QS21 extends the Power Architecture™-based blade portfolio and complements IBM's rack-optimized and blade server product lines (based on Xeon, Opteron, and POWER™ processors).

The Cell/B.E. processor chip utilizes a multicore architecture optimized for high-performance computing and media-rich applications. The new QS21 Cell/B.E. technology-based system is designed for businesses that need the dense computing power and unique capabilities of the Cell/B.E. processor to tackle tasks involving graphic-intensive, numeric applications.

The QS21 is particularly well suited for image processing, video processing, and signal processing applications in Aerospace and Defense, Medical Imaging, EDA, Digital Video Surveillance (DVS), Seismic, Financial Markets, and Digital Media industries.

The system will rely on the Cell/B.E. processor to help accelerate key algorithms like 3D rendering, compression, and encryption, to help enable companies to create and run highly visual, immersive, real-time applications.

The QS21 is the successor to the BladeCenter QS20, the first blade based on the Cell/B.E. processor, and is designed to coexist in the BladeCenter H chassis with other IBM blades: LSxx, HSxx, and JSxx.

The 1350 order process currently supports BladeCenter QS20 and will support QS21 in the future. The 1350 process also supports special bids for customers requiring QS21 support by 1350 prior to formal 1350 announcement.

Operating environment

Hardware requirements

The QS21 requires a BladeCenter chassis and appropriate network switches.

The QS21 does not have any internal disk storage. Because Red Hat Enterprise Linux™ 5.1 does not directly support an nfsroot installation on the network, a network boot image for the BladeCenter QS21 must be created on another 64-bit POWER™-based system with sufficient local disk space. Detailed instructions for this procedure are included in the product documentation.

IBM Electronic Services

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Service Agent™.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.

Warranty period

Optional IBM features initially installed in an IBM machine carry the same warranty period as the machine. If installed after the initial machine installation, they carry the balance of the machine warranty or the optional feature warranty, whichever is greater.

Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the type of warranty service specified below for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to an IBM Web site. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call and is subject to parts availability. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country- and location-specific information.

The type of service is Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) (for example, keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, or HDD) Service and On-site Service.

CRU Service: IBM provides a replacement CRU to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM at any time on your request. A CRU is designated as being either a Tier 1 or a Tier 2 CRU. Installation of a Tier 1 CRU is your responsibility. If IBM installs a Tier 1 CRU, at your request, you will be charged for the installation. You may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM to install it, at no additional charge, under the type of warranty service specified.

Based upon availability, a CRU will be shipped for next business day (NBD) delivery. IBM specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM. When return is required, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and you may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.

The following have been designated as a Tier 1 CRU:

On-site Service: This provides On-site Repair (IOR), 9 hours per day, Monday through Friday excluding holidays, NBD response. IBM or your reseller will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine.
