Abstract

M.2 is a solid-state drive (SSD) form factor primarily used as an operating system boot solution. Lenovo ThinkSystem servers support M.2 drives either with the addition of a supported M.2 adapter or module, or directly on the system board.

This product guide provides essential presales information to understand the ThinkSystem M.2 offerings, their key features and specifications, components and options, and configuration guidelines. This guide is intended for technical specialists, sales specialists, sales engineers, IT architects, and other IT professionals who want to learn more about the M.2 components, and consider their use in IT solutions.

Introduction

M.2 is a solid-state drive (SSD) form factor primarily used as an operating system boot solution in conventional rack and tower servers, or as small form factor storage offering for edge servers.

Lenovo ThinkSystem servers support M.2 drives in one of three ways, depending on the server selected:

  • One or two drives, mounted in an M.2 adapter, vertically in a dedicated slot
  • Two or four drives, mounted horizontally in an M.2 adapter
  • Installed directly on the system board

One example is the ThinkSystem M.2 RAID B540i-2i SATA/NVMe Adapter, as shown in the following figure, with one M.2 drive installed.

Did you know?

Many of the M.2 adapters include a built-in RAID controller and allows two installed M.2 drives to be configured either as RAID-1, RAID-0, or two independent drives (JBOD mode).

The Dual M.2 Adapter features a Lenovo patented design that provides a tool-less method for attaching back-to-back M.2 modules to the adapter.

Implementation

M.2 is primarily used as an operating system boot solution for conventional rack and tower servers. In edge servers, M.2 is also used for data and application storage, however best practices for edge servers is placing the boot/OS on different drives to data/applications. Drive endurance is an important criteria for both OS and data drives, so care should be taken to select the M.2 drives that match the intended workload. Review the endurance values for the drives you plan to use and ensure they meet the requirements for the OS and applications you plan to run.

Tip: The M.2 adapters and modules are also referred to as enablement kits. In the product publications, they are referred to as M.2 backplanes. These terms are interchangeable.

Implementation of M.2 in ThinkSystem servers is several ways, as described below:

Integrated on the system board

On the ST50 V2, ST250 and SR250, a single M.2 drive is installed directly on the system board.

On the SD530 V3 and SD550 V3, two M.2 drives are installed directly on the system board.

On the SD650 V3, SD650-I V3, SD650-N V3, SD665 V3, and SD665-N V3, a single M.2 drive is installed directly on a cold plate mounted on CPU 1

M.2 adapter with side-by-side drives

On servers with 3rd-Gen or later Intel Xeon Scalable or AMD EPYC processors, an M.2 module is mounted horizontally and is cabled to the system board.

The following M.2 modules are offered:

  • SATA RAID M.2 Module, which supports two SATA M.2 drives and includes integrated Marvell RAID functionality; available as the ThinkSystem M.2 SATA 2-Bay RAID Adapter, 4Y37A09739
  • NVMe RAID M.2 Module, which supports two NVMe M.2 drives and includes integrated Marvell RAID functionality; available as the ThinkSystem M.2 NVMe 2-Bay RAID Adapter, 4Y37A09750
  • SATA/NVMe RAID M.2 Module, which supports two NVMe drives or two SATA drives, and includes integrated Broadcom RAID functionality; available as the ThinkSystem M.2 RAID B540i-2i SATA/NVMe Adapter, 4Y37A90063
  • SATA/NVMe M.2 Module, which supports two SATA or two NVMe M.2 drives (no integrated RAID). NVMe drives are connected using a PCIe x1 interface. Available as the ThinkSystem M.2 SATA/NVMe 2-Bay Enablement Kit, 4Y37A09738
  • SATA/NVMe x4 M.2 Module, which supports two SATA or two NVMe M.2 drives (no integrated RAID). NVMe drives are connected using a PCIe x4 interface; available as the ThinkSystem M.2 SATA/x4 NVMe 2-Bay Adapter, 4Y37A79663

The following figure shows the SATA/NVMe M.2 Module with two 128 GB M.2 drives installed. Note that the production M.2 Module has a green circuit board, not the red color as shown here.

Figure 2. SATA/NVMe M.2 Module with 2 drives

M.2 adapter with back-to-back drives

On servers with 1st Gen and 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, and on the SE350, the M.2 drives install into an M.2 adapter which in turn is installed in a dedicated slot in the server. With two M.2 drives configured, the drives are configured by default as a RAID-1 mirrored pair for redundancy. There are two M.2 adapters supported:

  • Single M.2 Adapter, which supports one M.2 drive; available as the ThinkSystem M.2 Enablement Kit
  • Dual M.2 Adapter, which supports one or two M.2 drives; available as the ThinkSystem M.2 with Mirroring Enablement Kit. Includes a built-in RAID controller and allows two installed M.2 drives to be configured either as RAID-1, RAID-0, or two independent drives (JBOD mode).

The Dual M.2 Adapter, as shown in the following figure, with one 128GB M.2 drive partially inserted. The second M.2 drive is installed on the other side of the adapter.

M.2 adapter in a PCIe slot

On the ST250 V2, ST250 V3, SR250 V2 and SR250 V3, the M.2 side-by-side module is mounted in a bracket that is installed in a PCIe slot.

  • ThinkSystem M.2 SATA/NVMe 2-Bay Enablement Adapter, 4C57A85377, which is a combination of the ThinkSystem M.2 SATA/NVMe 2-Bay Enablement Kit (feature B5XJ) and a Dummy PCIe Card bracket (feature BMTU)

SE350 data drive implementation

On the ThinkSystem SE350 edge server, additional M.2 data drives are mounted on a 4-drive adapter that plugs into the PCIe riser.

There are two M.2 modules offered:

  • ThinkSystem SE350 M.2 SATA/NVMe 4-bay Data Drive Enablement Kit, which supports four SATA or four NVMe M.2 drives without RAID support
  • ThinkSystem SE350 M.2 SATA 4-Bay Data RAID Mirroring Enablement Kit, which supports four SATA drives and supports RAID 0/1 functionality

The following figure shows the ThinkSystem SE350 M.2 SATA/NVMe 4-bay Data Drive Enablement Kit installed in the PCIe riser.

Technical specifications of the drives

For the technical specifications of all M.2 drives, see the ThinkSystem SSD Portfolio:
https://lenovopress.com/lp1261-lenovo-thinksystem-ssd-portfolio#term=%2522M.2%2522&availability=Available

Performance data of NVMe drives: The performance numbers for NVMe drives listed in the table are based on a PCIe x4 connection to the processor, however, when installed in a Lenovo M.2 adapter, the NVMe drives only have a x2 or x1 connection. As a result, this performance data should only be used for comparative purposes.
