Business-critical 2U server packed with innovation
Suggested Uses: All sectors requiring highly available, energy-efficient, rack-optimized solution
for physical and virtual intensive commercial environments like eBusiness/eCommerce,
collaboration, virtualization, database, and enterprise resource planning applications.
Your challenge is to do more with less-serve more Web pages, handle more secure connections,
support more e-mail users. You need to reduce the costs of doing business and improve the
service you deliver to your customers while lowering your overall risk. The dual-socket IBM
System x3650 M3 can reduce your costs with its new energy-smart design. It can improve service
with reduced operational complexity and increased management functionality. It will lower your IT
risk with the resiliency that comes from no single point of failure. And like all IBM servers, the
x3650 M3 offers you the trust that comes from the IBM global reach, service and support.
The x3650 M3 is a game-changing rack server that uses significantly less power than previous
generations, with unified systems management tools, leadership reliability, availability,
serviceability features and broad system flexibility, housed in a compact 2U mechanical package.
®
The x3650 M3 features Intel
Xeon
of shared L3 cache, to provide you with the computing power you need to match your business
needs and growth. The new line of Intel processors delivers unprecedented intelligent
performance with features like adaptive performance for applications and environments, Turbo
Boost Technology and Hyper-Threading Technology, and integrated power gates and automated
power management.
The x3650 M3 supports up to 18 DIMMs / 192GB of RDIMM 1333MHz DDR3 memory (or up to 12
DIMMs / 48GB of UDIMM memory) and provides Chipkill
protection-for high performance and reliability. For even higher levels of availability, the x3650
M3 also offers memory mirroring. Up to 4 integrated high-speed Gigabit Ethernet controllers
are available (offering TOE (TCP Offload Engine) support on Microsoft
high-performance adapter slots (PCIe x8). The x3650 M3 offers an optional embedded
hypervisor to manage your virtual workloads.
The System x3650 M3 supports up to 16 high-performance hot-swap HDDs with an internal
1
storage capacity of 16TB
(2.5-inch hot-swap Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) or Serial-Attached
ATA (SATA) drives). Alternatively, up to 16 solid-state drives (SSDs) are also available to keep
power low, improve resiliency, and offer up to 800GB of storage. To address your backup needs,
up to eight HDDs or SSDs and one internal tape drive or removable disk cartridge drive can be
used. The server includes a choice of several IBM ServeRAID
broad levels of hardware-based RAID solutions. The ultra-dense 2U form factor allows
businesses to increase their computing power and spread their workload without outgrowing their
current data center. Up to 21 of these 2U servers can be installed in a single 42U rack, for a total
of up to 42 processors and 252 processor cores, offering tremendous deployment flexibility.
Standard in the x3650 M3 is the Integrated Management Module (IMM) that enables the user to
manage and control the server easily-both locally and remotely. In conjunction with the IMM, the
x3650 M3 comes with a Bosch BMP085 altitude sensor (altimeter) that governs fan rotation
based on altitude, to help lower your energy consumption. The IMM offers a high level of
manageability that is designed to keep costs down and the system up-even when network usage
increases. IBM's innovative pop-out/drop-down light path diagnostics panel enables quick
servicing of the system if a problem develops. These advanced features help maximize network
availability by increasing uptime, as do hot-swap solid-state drives; hot-swap/redundant SAS or
SATA HDDs, redundant ultra-efficient power supplies and fan modules; Active Memory
integrated RAID; temperature-controlled fans with Calibrated Vectored Cooling
support, including highly secure remote power control and Serial over LAN; as well as text-
console redirect over LAN.
