  • Page 5: General Information

    BX600 General information The Blade Server Concept The Blade Server System concept is a modular concept which separates the I/O functionality (switch blade, SCSI blade, FC pass-thru blade) from the CPU (server blade). Two management blades with an integrated management solution for complete redundant remote administration of the system are also implemented.

  • Page 6

    PCI expansion slot. The VGA and USB connectors at the front of each server blade can be used for local, on-site maintenance. The PRIMERGY BX600 chassis provides redundant and hot-pluggable infra- structure modules that are connected to the server blades by means of a passive midplane.

  • Page 7: Features

    Features High level of availability and failure protection The PRIMERGY BX600 blade server system offers a high level of reliability and availability through highly developed hardware and software components: – When memory data is accessed, 1-bit errors in the main memory are recog- nized and automatically corrected with the ECC (Error Correcting Code) method.

  • Page 8

    Features General information Memory There are three memory banks available on each server blade. These can be populated with 512 MB, 1 GB, 2 GB or 4 memory each with two DDR SDRAM modules. The maximum memory expansion is 12 GB. ECC with memory scrubbing function and hot-spare memory bank is standard.

If there are DDR-SDRAM modules with different capacities, put the higher- capacity modules as near as possible to the chip set. Example: If you have a 512 MB memory and a 1GB memory, each consisting of two DDR-SDRAM modules, put the 1 GB modules in bank 2 (sockets 3 and 4) and the 512 MB modules in bank 3 (sockets 5 and 6).
