The IntelliStation® POWER 285 workstation combines excellent performance and capacity in a flexible, affordable package. When used with the GXT4500P or GXT6500P 3D graphics accelerator, it is an outstanding choice for high-end Mechanical Computer Aided Design (MCAD), Computer Aided Engineering (CAE), graphic processing, and other floating-point-intensive business and technical applications. Using 2D graphics accelerators, it can be used for less demanding applications such as software development.
With leading-edge POWER5+ processor technology, the affordable 64-bit symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) POWER 285 workstation offers significant price/performance benefits. For CATIA MCAD workloads, it provides much greater performance than its predecessor, the IntelliStation POWER 275 workstation, while generating even less noise. By extending the performance of high-end design and analysis, the POWER 285 raises the bar for single-seat MCAD design and analysis solutions.
The IntelliStation POWER 285 workstation is available in a 1-way or 2-way configuration using state-of-the-art, 64-bit, copper-based POWER5+ microprocessors running at 1.9 GHz, both with 36 MB of L3 cache.
The base 1 GB of main memory can be expanded to 32 GB for faster performance and exploitation of 64-bit addressing as used in large engineering analysis or complex product design applications.
The IntelliStation POWER 285 workstation contains seven bays. Four of the bays are front-accessible and hot-swap-capable DASD bays. These four DASD bays can accommodate up to 1200 GB of disk storage. Two of the remaining three bays are used for a DVD-ROM and a DVD-RAM, and the last bay can contain a tape drive.
Other integrated features include:
The POWER 285 workstation supports a full range of graphic input/output devices including the new USB SpaceBall Plus 3D and USB SpaceMouse Plus 3D input devices, the L200p 20.1-inch TFT flat-panel monitor, and other keyboard and mouse devices.
Preconfigured express offerings for POWER 285 workstations are easy to order and offer extensive
features to meet the needs of engineering design environments. They are available at cost savings

Summary of standard features:
The minimum POWER 285 configuration must include a processor, a processor entitlement, memory, power supply, hard disk, a disk drive enclosure, a media backplane, a power cord, a 2D graphics accelerator, and a language group specify.
The defaults, if no choice is made, are:
1-way, 1.9 GHz processor, (#8327) 36 MB L3 cache One Processor Entitlement (#7319) Memory 1 GB memory DIMM (#1930) Power supply, 700-watt ac (#5170) Disk drive 73.4 GB hard drive (#1968) 4-pack disk drive enclosure (#6574) Media backplane (#7877) 2D graphics accelerator (#1980) Language group specify (#9300 or 97xx) Power cord (#6470 to #6478, #6487, #6488, #6493 to #6496, #6651, #6659, #6670, #6680, #6687)
Express Product Offerings are available only as initial order.
If you order an IntelliStation POWER 285 workstation with a 1-way (#8327) or 2-way (#8330) POWER5+ 1.9 GHz processor with a minimum configuration, you qualify for an Express Product Offering giving you a processor entitlement at no extra charge. The number of processors, total memory, quantity/size of disk, presence of a media device, monitor, keyboard, mouse, and audio adapter are the only features that determine if a customer is entitled to a processor entitlement at no additional charge. You will be entitled to a lower priced AIX® operating system license or may choose to purchase the system with no operating system. The lower priced AIX operating system is processed via a feature number on AIX.
You can make changes to the standard features as needed and still qualify for processor entitlements at no additional charge, and the lower priced AIX operating system license. However, selection of total memory or DASD smaller than the total defined as the minimums disqualifies the order as an Express Product Offering.
Receive one processor entitlement (#8409) at no additional charge. One processor is entitled.
Receive one processor entitlement (#8410) at no additional charge. Two processors are entitled.
Reliability, fault tolerance, and data integrity: The reliability of the IntelliStation POWER 285 system starts with components, devices, and subsystems that are designed to be fault tolerant. During the design and development process, subsystems go through rigorous verification and integration testing processes. During system manufacturing, systems go through a thorough testing process to help ensure the highest product quality level.
The IntelliStation POWER 285 system L3 cache and system memory offers error checking and correcting (ECC) fault-tolerant features. ECC is designed to correct environmentally induced, single-bit, intermittent memory failures and single-bit hard failures. With ECC, the likelihood of memory failures will be substantially reduced. ECC also provides double-bit memory error detection that helps protect data integrity in the event of a double-bit memory failure. System memory also provides 4-bit packet error detection that helps to protect data integrity in the event of a DRAM chip failure. The system bus, I/O bus, and PCI buses are designed with parity error detection.
Disk mirroring and disk controller duplexing capability are also provided by the AIX operating system.
The Journaled File System maintains file system consistency and reduces the likelihood of data loss when the system is abnormally halted due to a power failure.
PCI extended error handling (EEH): In the past, PCI bus parity errors caused a global machine check interrupt, which eventually required a system reboot to continue. In the POWER5+ systems, new I/O drawer hardware, system firmware, and AIX interaction have been designed to allow transparent recovery of intermittent PCI bus parity errors and graceful transition to the I/O device available state in the case of a permanent parity error in the PCI bus. This mechanism is called the PCI extended error handling (EEH). EEH-enabled adapters respond to a special data packet generated from the affected PCI slot hardware by calling system firmware, which will examine the affected bus, allow the device driver to reset it, and continue without a system reboot.
Memory error correction extensions: The standard memory has single-error-correct and double-error detect ECC circuitry designed to correct single-bit memory failures. The double-bit detection helps to maintain data integrity by detecting and reporting multiple errors beyond what the ECC circuitry can correct. The memory chips are organized such that the failure of any specific memory module only affects a single bit within an ECC word (bit scattering), allowing error correction and continued operation in the presence of a complete chip failure (Chipkill recovery).
The memory also utilizes memory scrubbing and thresholding to determine when spare memory modules within each bank of memory, if available, should be used to replace ones that have exceeded their threshold value (dynamic bit steering).
Redundancy for array self-healing: Although the most likely failure event in a processor is a soft single-bit error in one of its caches, there are other events that can occur, and they need to be distinguished from one another. For the L1, L2, and L3 caches and their directories, hardware and firmware keep track of whether permanent errors are being corrected beyond a threshold. If exceeded, a deferred repair error log is created. Additional run-time availability actions, such as CPU vary off or L3 cache line delete, are also initiated.
L1 and L2 caches and L2 and L3 directories on the POWER5+ chip are manufactured with spare bits in their arrays that can be accessed via programmable steering logic to replace faulty bits in the respective arrays. This is analogous to the redundant bit steering employed in main storage as a mechanism that is designed to help avoid physical repair, and is also implemented in POWER5+ systems. The steering logic is activated during processor initialization and is initiated by the built-in self-test (BIST) at power-on time.
L3 cache redundancy is implemented at the cache line granularity level. Exceeding correctable error thresholds while running causes invocation of a dynamic L3 cache line delete function.
Service processor: The service processor that is standard on the POWER 285 workstation provides the capability to diagnose, check the status of, and sense the operational conditions of a remote system.
The service processor runs on its own power boundary and does not require a system processor to be operational to perform its tasks.
The service processor supports surveillance of the connection to the HMC and to the system firmware (hypervisor). It also provides several remote power control options, environmental monitoring (but only critical errors are supported under Linux), reset and boot features, and remote maintenance and diagnostic functions including console mirroring.
The service processor can place calls to report surveillance failures, critical environmental faults, and critical processing faults when the system is not managed by an HMC running Service Focal Point.
Fault monitoring functions
Mutual surveillance: The service processor monitors the operation of the firmware during the boot process, and also monitors the hypervisor for termination. The hypervisor monitors the service processor and will perform a reset/reload if it detects the loss of the service processor. If the reset/reload does not correct the problem with the service processor, the hypervisor will notify the operating system and the operating system can take appropriate action, including calling for service.
Environmental monitoring functions
Error handling and reporting: In the unlikely event of system hardware or environmentally induced failure, the system run-time error capture capability systematically analyzes the hardware error signature to determine the cause of failure. The analysis result will be stored in system NVRAM. When the system can be successfully rebooted either manually or automatically, the error will be reported to the AIX operating system. ELA can be used to display the failure cause and the physical location of failing hardware.
With the integrated service processor, the system has the ability to automatically send out an alert via phone line to a pager or call for service in the event of critical system failure. A hardware fault will also turn on the two attention indicators (one located on the front of the system unit and the other on the rear of the system unit) to alert the user of an internal hardware problem. The indicator may also be turned on by the operator as a tool to allow system identification. For identification, the indicators will flash, whereas the indicator will be on solid when an error condition occurs.
Availability enhancement functions: The auto-restart (reboot) option, when enabled, can reboot the system automatically following an unrecoverable software error, software hang, hardware failure, or environmentally induced (ac power) failure.
Serviceability: The POWER 285 workstation is designed for customer setup of the machine and for subsequent addition of most features (adapters/devices). For a fee, IBM Service can perform the installation.
Service Agent: The Service Agent is available at no additional charge. When installed on an eServer® system, the Service Agent can enhance IBM's ability to provide the system with maintenance service.
