1 No CP is required if ordering an IFL or ICF only server.
2 No IFL is required unless ordering an IFL only server.
3 If ordering a zAAP or a zIIP, one or more general purpose processor (CP) per the specialty engine is required. One CP can satisfy the requirement for either or both of the specialty engines.
4 Must be configured with a minimum of one CP, IFL or ICF.
5 The maximum external links is obtained with a combination of ISC-3 and 1x Infiiband links.
6 ISC-3 Peer mode only.
7 Can be acquired in increments of 8 or 32 GB; Excludes the standard fixed size of 8 GB HSA which is separately managed; RAIM standard.
8 Optional overhead I/O cabling feature adds 6 in. to the width.
9 Airflow is designed to increase as the local ambient room temperature increases. Nominal airflow assumes 77°F ambient.
10 Upgrading from the M05 to the M10 or from the M10 to M15 will require a planned outage.
11 z/OS V 1.10 is the minimum level required to support an ensemble.
12 On November 1, 2011, IBM Smart Analytics Optimiser was withdrawn from marketing for new build and MES zBX. It has been replaced with IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator for z/OS (IDAA), a new workload optimised, appliance add-on that attaches to the zEnterprise System.
13 The BladeCenter PS701 Express and BladeCenter HX5 blades and DataPower XI50z can share the same BladeCenter chassis—note that DataPower XI50z blades are “doublewide” and use two slots. They can be mixed in the same zBX with IBM Smart Analytics Optimiser for DB2 for z/OS V1.1 blades—but not in the same BladeCenter Chassis. Total zBX capacity cannot exceed 112 total blades.
