The IBM eServer pSeries 690 (7040-681) is the first in a family of products representing a new generation of IBM's 64-bit, symmetric multiprocessing UNIX (SMP) servers. It gives you the power you need to consolidate workloads within a single, powerful, UNIX system. The large SMP server no longer functions merely as a server, but rather as a self- contained "IT infrastructure in a box."
The attributes of the pSeries 690 set the stage to grow as your needs change:
- High availability
Use it as you make your transition from existing RS/6000 Model S80 and p680 units or move to a brand new computing model.
- Advanced reliability features like Chipkill memory, First Failure Data Capture and Dynamic Processor Deallocation
- Designed for mission-critical commercial or technical environments
- Advanced symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) up to 32-way
- Copper and silicon-on-insulator (SOI) chip
- Service processor, hot-plug PCI and PCI-X slots, hot-plug redundant power supplies and cooling fans, and Dynamic Processor Deallocation
- Up to 32 dynamic AIX 5L logical partitions offering greater flexibility in using available capacity
- On demand capabilities including processor on demand, memory on demand, Capacity BackUp, and On/Off Capacity on Demand
- pSeries High Performance Switch for high-bandwidth, low latency cluster interconnect
- AIX 5L and Linux support
- Cluster 1600 support with Cluster Systems Management for AIX 5L or Linux
- 1.50, 1.70 or 1.90GHz POWER4+ processors
- 16 hot-swappable disk bays (up to 128 with optional I/O drawer)
- 5 media bays
- 20 hot-plug PCI-X slots (up to 160 with optional I/O drawer)
- Up to 1TB of ECC Chipkill system memory
