CTO models

ThinkSystem SR630 V3 models can be configured by using the Lenovo Data Center Solution Configurator (DCSC).

Configure-to-order (CTO) models are used to create models with factory-integrated server customizations. For CTO models, two types of base CTO models are available for the SR630 V3 as listed in the columns in the following table:

  • General purpose base CTO models are for general business (non-HPC) and is selectable by choosing General Purpose mode in DCSC.
  • AI and HPC base models are intended for Artificial Intelligence (AI) and High Performance Computing (HPC) configurations and solutions are enabled using the AI & HPC Hardware - ThinkSystem Hardware mode in DCSC. These configurations, along with Lenovo EveryScale Solutions, can also be built using System x and Cluster Solutions Configurator (x-config). Tip: Some HPC and AI models are not listed in DCSC and can only be configured in x-config.

Controlled GPU models: The "Controlled GPU" base CTO models listed in the table are the only models that support high-performance GPUs and accelerators. These models are classified under US Government ECCN regulations and have limited market and customer availability. All other base models do not support high-performance GPUs.

Preconfigured server models may also be available for the SR630 V3, however these are region-specific; that is, each region may define their own server models, and not all server models are available in every region.

The following table lists the base CTO models of the ThinkSystem SR630 V3 server.

Base feature codes

Models of the SR630 V3 are defined based on whether the server has 2.5-inch drive bays at the front (called the 10x 2.5" chassis or simply the 2.5-inch chassis) or whether it has 3.5-inch drive bays at the front (called the 3.5-inch chassis). For models, the feature codes for these chassis bases are as listed in the following table.

Table 4. Chassis base feature codes
Feature code Description Purpose
BLK4 ThinkSystem V3 1U 10x2.5" Chassis 4x, 8x, or 10x front 2.5-inch hot-swap drives without front PCIe slots, or 16x EDSFF E1.S drive bays

Processor features

Processors supported by the SR630 V3 introduce new embedded accelerators to add even more processing capability:

  • QuickAssist Technology (Intel QAT)

    Help reduce system resource consumption by providing accelerated cryptography, key protection, and data compression with Intel QuickAssist Technology (Intel QAT). By offloading encryption and decryption, this built-in accelerator helps free up processor cores and helps systems serve a larger number of clients.

  • Intel Dynamic Load Balancer (Intel DLB)

    Improve the system performance related to handling network data on multi-core Intel Xeon Scalable processors. Intel Dynamic Load Balancer (Intel DLB) enables the efficient distribution of network processing across multiple CPU cores/threads and dynamically distributes network data across multiple CPU cores for processing as the system load varies. Intel DLB also restores the order of networking data packets processed simultaneously on CPU cores.

  • Intel Data Streaming Accelerator (Intel DSA)

    Drive high performance for storage, networking, and data-intensive workloads by improving streaming data movement and transformation operations. Intel Data Streaming Accelerator (Intel DSA) is designed to offload the most common data movement tasks that cause overhead in data center-scale deployments. Intel DSA helps speed up data movement across the CPU, memory, and caches, as well as all attached memory, storage, and network devices.

  • Intel In-Memory Analytics Accelerator (Intel IAA)

    Run database and analytics workloads faster, with potentially greater power efficiency. Intel In-Memory Analytics Accelerator (Intel IAA) increases query throughput and decreases the memory footprint for in-memory database and big data analytics workloads. Intel IAA is ideal for in-memory databases, open source databases and data stores like RocksDB, Redis, Cassandra, and MySQL.

  • Intel Advanced Matrix Extensions (Intel AMX)

    Intel Advanced Matrix Extensions (Intel AMX) is a built-in accelerator in all Silver, Gold, and Platinum processors that significantly improves deep learning training and inference. With Intel AMX, you can fine-tune deep learning models or train small to medium models in just minutes. Intel AMX offers discrete accelerator performance without added hardware and complexity.

The processors also support a separate and encrypted memory space, known as the SGX Enclave, for use by Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX). The size of the SGX Enclave supported varies by processor model. Intel SGX offers hardware-based memory encryption that isolates specific application code and data in memory. It allows user-level code to allocate private regions of memory (enclaves) which are designed to be protected from processes running at higher privilege levels.

Intel On Demand feature licensing

Intel On Demand is a licensing offering from Lenovo for certain 4th Gen and 5th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors that implements software-defined silicon (SDSi) features. The licenses allow customers to activate the embedded accelerators and to increase the SGX Enclave size in specific processor models as their workload and business needs change.

The available upgrades are the following:

  • Up to 4x QuickAssist Technology (Intel QAT) accelerators
  • Up to 4x Intel Dynamic Load Balancer (Intel DLB) accelerators
  • Up to 4x Intel Data Streaming Accelerator (Intel DSA) accelerators
  • Up to 4x Intel In-Memory Analytics Accelerator (Intel IAA) accelerators
  • 512GB SGX Enclave, an encrypted memory space for use by Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX)

See the Processor features section for a brief description of each accelerator and the SGX Enclave.

The following table lists the ordering information for the licenses. Accelerator licenses are bundled together based on the suitable workloads each would benefit with the additional accelerators.

Licenses can be activated in the factory (CTO orders) using feature codes, or as field upgrades using the option part numbers. With the field upgrades, they allow customers to only activate the accelerators or to increase the SGX Enclave size when their applications can best take advantage of them.

Intel On Demand is licensed on individual processors. For servers with two processors, customers will need a license for each processor and the licenses of the two processors must match. If customers add a second processor as a field upgrade, then you must ensure that the Intel On Demand licenses match the first processor.

Each license enables a certain quantity of embedded accelerators - the total number of accelerators available after activation is listed in the table. For example, Intel On Demand Communications & Storage Suite 4 (4L47A89451), once applied to the server, will result in a total of 4x QAT, 4x DLB and 4x DSA accelerators to be enabled the processor. The number of IAA accelerators is unchanged in this example.

Configuration rules:

  • Not all processors support Intel On Demand upgrades - see the table for those that do not support Intel On Demand
  • Upgrades can be performed in the factory (feature codes) or in the field (part numbers) but not both, and only one time
  • Upgrades cannot be removed once activated
  • SGX Enclave upgrades are independent of the accelerator upgrades; install either or both as desired
  • For processors that support more than one upgrade, all upgrades must be performed at the same time
  • Only one of each type of upgrade can be applied to a processor (eg 2x BX9A is not supported; 4x BX9B is not supported)
  • The following processors support two accelerator upgrades, Intel On Demand Analytics Suite 4 (4L47A89452) and Intel On Demand Communications & Storage Suite 4 (4L47A89451); the table(s) above shows the accelerators based on both upgrades being applied.
    • Intel Xeon Platinum 8460Y+
    • Intel Xeon Platinum 8480+
    • Intel Xeon Platinum 8568Y+
    • Intel Xeon Platinum 8592+
  • The number of accelerators listed for each upgrade is the number of accelerators that will be active one the upgrade is complete (ie the total number, not the number to be added)
  • If a server has two processors, then two feature codes must be selected, one for each processor. The upgrades on the two processors must be identical.
  • If a one-processor server with Intel On Demand features activated on it has a 2nd processor added as a field upgrade, the 2nd processor must also have the same features activated by purchasing the appropriate part numbers.

One-processor configurations

The SR630 V3 can be used with only one processor installed. Most core functions of the server (including the XClarity Controller) are connected to processor 1 as shown in the System architecture section.

With only one processor, the server has the following capabilities:

  • 16 memory DIMMs for a 2TB maximum
  • Two PCIe slots, Slot 1 and Slot 2 are available; Slot 3 is not available
  • OCP 3.0 slot
  • Up to 4x NVMe front drives using onboard connections
  • 7mm drives
  • M.2 drives
  • Internal RAID adapter or HBA (CFF form factor)

Thermal requirements by processor

For additional thermal requirements for processors, see the Thermal Rules section in the Lenovo Docs site for the SR630 V3:
https://pubs.lenovo.com/sr630-v3/thermal_rules

The SR630 V3 supports four different processor cooling solutions, depending on the configuration, as listed in the following table.

Table 19. Processor cooling options
Feature code Description Purpose
BPFK Standard Heatsink Standard 1U heatsink. Automatically selected based on the server configuration.
BP50 ThinkSystem SR630 V3 Performance Heatsink (Neptune Thermal Transfer Module) Performance 1U heatsink with two satellite heatsinks. Automatically selected based on the server configuration.
BRU2 ThinkSystem SR630 V3 Neptune Liquid to Air Module Enables closed-loop liquid cooling of the processors. See the Lenovo Neptune Liquid to Air Module section.
BXBC ThinkSystem V3 1U/2U Neptune Processor Direct Water Cooling Module Enables open-loop liquid cooling of the processors. See the Lenovo Neptune Processor DWC Module section.

The selection of the heatsink will be automatically derived by the configurator and depends on the processor and other components selected. Use the tables in the Lenovo Docs site to determine the requirements for each heatsink:
https://pubs.lenovo.com/sr630-v3/thermal_rules

Lenovo Neptune Liquid to Air Module - Closed-loop liquid cooling

The Lenovo Neptune Liquid to Air (L2A) Module is a closed-loop liquid-cooled processor heatsink, and is primarily used for processors with a TDP of more than 300W. Without the closed-loop heatsink, the use of processors > 300W TDP requires that only 4x front 2.5-inch drive bays be configured. The use of the closed-loop heatsink allows for 10x SAS/SATA or NVMe drives bays.

Ambient temperature: The use of the closed-loop liquid-cooled heatsinks requires that the ambient temperature be no more than 25°C.

The following figure shows the placement of the components in the closed-loop liquid-cooled solution. Cold plates are mounted on top of each processor and these are connected via aluminum tubes to a radiator that is placed in front of the system fans. The tubes contain a mixture of water and ethylene glycol (EGW). The liquid is actively pumped through the pipes in a closed loop to remove the heat from the processors.

Lenovo Neptune Processor DWC Module - Open-loop liquid cooling

The SR630 V3 also supports advanced direct-water cooling (DWC) capability with the Lenovo Neptune Processor DWC Module. This module implements a liquid cooling solution where heat from the processors is removed from the rack and the data center using an open loop and coolant distrubution units. The liquid used in the loop is a mixture of water and ethylene glycol (EGW).

With the Neptune Processor DWC Module, all heat generated by the processors is removed from the server using water. This means that the server fans and data center air conditioning units only need to remove the heat generated by the other components. This results in lower air conditioning costs and it enables the use of slower fans which results in lower overall power consumption.

Typical power saving of 26% (up to 17.2KW per rack) are possible, based on 35x SR630 V3 servers in a rack (DC level PUE weighted) at 30°C ambient temperature. Power savings are configuration dependent.

The following figure shows the Lenovo Neptune Processor DWC Module.

Lenovo Neptune Processor DWC Module
Figure 8. Lenovo Neptune Processor DWC Module

The Neptune Processor DWC Module also includes a leak detection module which can detect a leakage of more than 0.5ml (about 10 drops) along the length of the tube and then issue an event to the XClarity Controller. XCC will then post an error to the System Event Log and enable further actions. Once the liquid evaporates, a further event is issue to XCC.

The Neptune Processor DWC Module is only available in CTO orders, not as a field upgrade. Ordering information is listed in the following table.

Table 21. Ordering information
Part number Feature code Description
CTO only BXBC* ThinkSystem V3 1U/2U Neptune Processor Direct Water Cooling Module

UEFI operating modes

The SR630 V3 offers preset operating modes that affect energy consumption and performance. These modes are a collection of predefined low-level UEFI settings that simplify the task of tuning the server to suit your business and workload requirements.

The following table lists the feature codes that allow you to specify the mode you wish to preset in the factory for CTO orders.

Table 22. UEFI operating mode presets in DCSC
Feature code Description
BFYB Operating mode selection for: "Maximum Performance Mode"
BFYC Operating mode selection for: "Minimal Power Mode"
BFYD Operating mode selection for: "Efficiency Favoring Power Savings Mode"
BFYE Operating mode selection for: "Efficiency - Favoring Performance Mode"

The preset modes for the SR630 V3 are as follows:

  • Maximum Performance Mode (feature BFYB): Achieves maximum performance but with higher power consumption and lower energy efficiency.
  • Minimal Power Mode (feature BFYC): Minimize the absolute power consumption of the system.
  • Efficiency Favoring Power Savings Mode (feature BFYD): Maximize the performance/watt efficiency with a bias towards power savings. This is the favored mode for SPECpower benchmark testing, for example.
  • Efficiency Favoring Performance Mode (feature BFYE): Maximize the performance/watt efficiency with a bias towards performance. This is the favored mode for Energy Star certification, for example.

For details about these preset modes, and all other performance and power efficiency UEFI settings offered in the SR630 V3, see the paper "Tuning UEFI Settings for Performance and Energy Efficiency on Intel Xeon Scalable Processor-Based ThinkSystem Servers", available from https://lenovopress.lenovo.com/lp1477.

9x4 RDIMMs (also known as EC4 RDIMMs) are a new lower-cost DDR5 memory option supported in ThinkSystem V3 servers. 9x4 DIMMs offer the same performance as standard RDIMMs (known as 10x4 or EC8 modules), however they support lower fault-tolerance characteristics. Standard RDIMMs and 3DS RDIMMs support two 40-bit subchannels (that is, a total of 80 bits), whereas 9x4 RDIMMs support two 36-bit subchannels (a total of 72 bits). The extra bits in the subchannels allow standard RDIMMs and 3DS RDIMMs to support Single Device Data Correction (SDDC), however 9x4 RDIMMs do not support SDDC. Note, however, that all DDR5 DIMMs, including 9x4 RDIMMs, support Bounded Fault correction, which enables the server to correct most common types of DRAM failures.

For more information on DDR5 memory, see the Lenovo Press paper, Introduction to DDR5 Memory, available from https://lenovopress.com/lp1618.

The following rules apply when selecting the memory configuration:

  • 4800 MHz memory is only supported with 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors. 5600 MHz memory is only supported with 5th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, with only four exceptions

  • The exceptions to the above rule are the following 5th Gen processors, which only support 4800 MHz memory DIMMs:

For best performance, consider the following:

  • Ensure the memory installed is at least the same speed as the memory bus of the selected processor.
  • Populate all 8 memory channels.

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC detection/correction
  • Bounded Fault detection/correction
  • SDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs; look for "x4" in the DIMM description)
  • ADDDC (for 10x4-based memory DIMMs, not supported with 9x4 DIMMs)
  • Memory mirroring

See the Lenovo Press article "RAS Features of the Lenovo ThinkSystem Intel Servers" for more information about memory RAS features: https://lenovopress.lenovo.com/lp1711-ras-features-of-the-lenovo-thinksystem-intel-servers

If memory channel mirroring is used, then DIMMs must be installed in pairs (minimum of one pair per processor), and both DIMMs in the pair must be identical in type and size. 50% of the installed capacity is available to the operating system. Memory rank sparing is not supported.

Persistent memory

The SR630 V3 server supports Intel Optane Persistent Memory 300 Series, a new class of memory and storage technology explicitly architected for data center usage. Persistent memory is an innovative technology that delivers a unique combination of affordable large memory capacity and persistence (non-volatility). It offers significantly lower latency than fetching data from SSDs, even NVMe SSDs, and offers higher capacities than system memory.

Persistent memory technology can help boost the performance of data-intensive applications such as in-memory analytics, databases, content delivery networks, and high performance computing (HPC), as well as deliver consistent service levels at scale with higher virtual machine and container density. When data is stored closer to the processor on nonvolatile media, applications can see significant overall improvement in performance.

Key workloads:

  • Hybrid cloud, IaaS, and Virtualization: Increased VM density
  • In-memory databases and data services: Higher capacity/larger databases, data reliability/quick recovery, memory performance
  • AI/Analytics: Faster real-time analytics and Machine Learning Analytics
  • Fast storage solutions: Increased storage capacity and performance

The following table lists the ordering information for the supported persistent memory modules.

4X77A75935 BNFB ThinkSystem 512GB TruDDR5 4400MHz Intel Optane PMem 16

The following are the requirements when installing persistent memory (PMem) modules:

  • Only App Direct Mode is supported; Memory Mode and Mixed Mode are not supported
  • All PMem modules operate at a maximum speed of 4400 MHz; any installed RDIMMs will also run at this maximum speed
  • PMem is supported only with 10x4 RDIMMs and 3DS RDIMMs; PMem is not supported with 9x4 RDIMMs
  • All installed PMem modules must be the same size; Mixing PMem modules of different capacities is not supported
  • Maximum 8 PMem modules per processor (install 1 in each memory channel).
  • For each memory channel with both a PMem module and a memory DIMM installed, the PMem module is installed in channel slot 1 (DIMM1, closer to the processor) and the DIMM is installed in channel slot 0 (DIMM0)
  • To maximize performance, balance all memory channels
  • Both interleaved and non-interleaved modes are supported
  • Memory mirroring is only supported on the RDIMMs; Memory mirroring is not supported on the PMem modules

Internal storage

The SR630 V3 supports 4x 3.5-inch or 12x 2.5-inch or 16x EDSFF drive bays, depending on the selected chassis and backplane configuration. The server also supports configurations without any drive bays if desired.

The server supports front and rear drive bays, are as follows:

  • Front:
    • 4x 3.5-inch hot-swap bays, or
    • Up to 10x 2.5-inch hot-swap bays, or
    • 16x EDSFF hot-swap bays
  • Rear:
    • 2x 2.5-inch hot-swap bays, or
    • 2x 7mm hot-swap drives bays

All drives are hot-swap and are accessible from the front or from the rear.

The server also supports one or two M.2 drives, installed in an M.2 adapter internal to the server.

In this section:

NVMe drive support

The SR630 V3 supports NVMe drives to maximize storage performance:

  • In 2.5-inch front drive configurations, the server supports up to 12 NVMe drives without oversubscription (that is, each x4 drive has a dedicated x4 connection (4 lanes) to the processor):
    • 10x 2.5-inch NVMe drives at the front
    • 2x 2.5-inch NVMe drives at the rear
  • In 3.5-inch front drive configurations, the server supports up to 6 NVMe drives without oversubscription:
    • 4x 3.5-inch NVMe drives at the front
    • 2x 2.5-inch NVMe drives at the rear
  • In EDSFF front drive configurations, the server supports up to 16 NVMe drives without oversubscription:
    • 16x E1.S NVMe drives at the front

The specifics of these configurations are covered in the Storage configurations section.

In addition, the SR630 V3 supports two 7mm NVMe drives for use as boot drives. These two drives optionally support RAID via a separate RAID adapter installed in a PCIe slot.

The RAID 940-8i and RAID 940-16i adapters also support NVMe through a feature named Tri-Mode support (or Trimode support). This feature enables the use of NVMe U.3 drives at the same time as SAS and SATA drives. Tri-Mode requires an AnyBay backplane. Cabling of the controller to the backplanes is the same as with SAS/SATA drives, and the NVMe drives are connected via a PCIe x1 link to the controller.

NVMe drives connected using Tri-Mode support provide better performance than SAS or SATA drives: A SATA SSD has a data rate of 6Gbps, a SAS SSD has a data rate of 12Gbps, whereas an NVMe U.3 Gen 4 SSD with a PCIe x1 link will have a data rate of 16Gbps. NVMe drives typically also have lower latency and higher IOPS compared to SAS and SATA drives. Tri-Mode is supported with U.3 NVMe drives in either 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch form factor and requires an AnyBay backplane.

Tri-Mode requires U.3 drives: Only NVMe drives with a U.3 interface are supported. U.2 drives are not supported. See the Internal drive options section for the U.3 drives supported by the server.

Front drive bays

The front drive bay zone supports the following configurations. All drives are hot-swap.

  • 3.5-inch hot-swap drive bays
    • 4x SAS/SATA 3.5-inch
    • 4x AnyBay 3.5-inch (PCIe Gen4)
  • 2.5-inch hot-swap drive bays without support for front PCIe slots
    • 4x SAS/SATA
    • 4x NVMe (PCIe Gen4 or Gen5)
    • 8x SAS/SATA
    • 10x SAS/SATA
    • 6x SAS/SATA + 4x AnyBay (PCIe Gen4 or Gen5)
    • 6x SAS/SATA + 2x AnyBay + 2x NVMe (PCIe Gen4 or Gen5)
    • 10x AnyBay (PCIe Gen4 or Gen5)

Field upgrades

The SR630 V3 is orderable without drive bays, allowing you to add a backplane, cabling and controllers as field upgrades. The following table summarizes the option part numbers you will need to order for each available drive configuration.

Configuration rules:

  • For front drive bays, backplane kits do not include cables. Cables must be ordered separately.
  • For Rear drive bays, backplane kits included cables.
  • There is no upgrade path to add drive bays if the SR630 V3 already has a backplane, without removing the existing backplane. For example, you cannot upgrade an 8x 2.5-inch drive bay to 10 bays without first removing the existing backplane.
  • EDSFF configurations are CTO only. There are no field upgrades to EDSFF drives.

The following table lists the backplane option kits. Cables are ordered separately for front backplanes.

When adding drive bays, you will also need to add the appropriate storage controller(s). Consult the tables in the Storage configurations section to determine what controller sections are supported and what additional controllers you will need. Controllers are described in the Controllers for internal storage section.

Upgrades to Internal (CFF) RAID adapter

If you want to add an internal (CFF) storage adapter (HBA, RAID adapter or SAS expander) to a configuration, you will need to order the cable kit as listed in the following table. Suitable upgrades are either replacing an existing adapter in a rear PCIe slot, or adding the CFF adapter to a server without any storage adapter installed.

RAID flash power module (supercap) support

If you plan to add one of the RAID adapters that includes a RAID flash power module (supercap) as a field upgrade, then you will also need to order a Supercap installation kit for the power module. For CTO orders, the components in the installation kit are automatically derived when you select the RAID adapter.

The adapters that this applies to are as follows:

  • Any supported RAID 9350 adapter
  • Any supported RAID 940 adapter

There are up to three possible locations for supercaps, depending on the front drive bays (2.5-inch or 3.5-inch) and the type of the processor heatsinks. Details are summarized in the following table. Location references are shown in the figure below.

Configuration notes:

  • VROC NVMe RAID support: Some 5th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors do not support Intel VROC NVMe RAID. See the Intel VROC NVMe RAID section for specifics.
  • Supercap support limits the number of RAID adapters installable: The table lists whether the adapter includes a power module (supercap) to power the flash memory. The server supports between 1 and 3 supercaps depending on the server configuration as described in the RAID flash power module (supercap) support section. The number of supercaps supported also determines the maximum number of RAID adapters with flash that can be installed in the server.
  • Field upgrades: If you are adding a RAID adapter with supercap to the server as a field upgrade, you may need a supercap holder as described in the RAID flash power module (supercap) support section.
  • 7mm drive support: The storage adapters listed in the table below do not provide connectivity to the 7mm drive bays that are optionally available at the rear of the server. See the 7mm drives section for details.
  • E810 Ethernet and X350 RAID/HBAs: The use of both an Intel E810 network adapter and an X350 HBA/RAID adapter (9350, 5350 and 4350) is currently not supported in ThinkSystem servers. For details see Support Tip HT513226. Planned support for this combination of adapters is 2Q/2024.

The RAID 940-8i and RAID 940-16i adapters also support NVMe through a feature named Tri-Mode support (or Trimode support). This feature enables the use of NVMe U.3 drives at the same time as SAS and SATA drives. Tri-Mode requires an AnyBay backplane. Cabling of the controller to the backplanes is the same as with SAS/SATA drives, and the NVMe drives are connected via a PCIe x1 link to the controller.

NVMe drives connected using Tri-Mode support provide better performance than SAS or SATA drives: A SATA SSD has a data rate of 6Gbps, a SAS SSD has a data rate of 12Gbps, whereas an NVMe U.3 Gen 4 SSD with a PCIe x1 link will have a data rate of 16Gbps. NVMe drives typically also have lower latency and higher IOPS compared to SAS and SATA drives. Tri-Mode is supported with U.3 NVMe drives in either 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch form factor and requires an AnyBay backplane.

Tri-Mode requires U.3 drives: Only NVMe drives with a U.3 interface are supported. U.2 drives are not supported. See the Internal drive options section for the U.3 drives supported by the server.

The onboard SATA controller has the following features:

  • Controller integrated into the Intel PCH
  • 6 Gbps SATA host interface
  • Supports up to 12 SATA drives
  • Supports RAID-0, 1, 5, 10 up to 8 drives (Intel VROC SATA RAID, previously known as RSTe)
  • Supports JBOD
  • Supports HDDs and SSDs; can be mixed

SATA RAID support limited to 8 drives: The SR630 V3 supports 12 SATA drives connected to the onboard SATA controller, however only the first 8 drives can be configured in VROC SATA RAID arrays. The remaining 4 drives can only be configured as JBOD.

The onboard NVMe support has the following features:

  • Controller integrated into the Intel processor
  • Supports up to 16 NVMe drives direct connected to onboard ports
  • Each drive has PCIe 5.0 x4 host interface
  • Supports JBOD only - Intel and non-Intel NVMe SSDs
  • Supports RAID-0, 1, 10 on Intel and non-Intel NVMe SSDs - Intel VROC Standard
  • VROC Premium adds RAID-5 support on Intel and non-Intel NVMe SSDs

Intel VROC onboard RAID

Intel VROC (Virtual RAID on CPU) is a feature of the Intel processor that enables RAID support.

There are two separate functions of VROC in the SR630 V3:

  • Intel VROC SATA RAID, formerly known as Intel RSTe
  • Intel VROC NVMe RAID

VROC SATA RAID (RSTe) is available and supported with all SATA drives, both SATA SSDs and SATA HDDs. It offers a 6 Gb/s connection to each drive and on the SR630 V3 implements RAID levels 0, 1, 5, and 10. RAID 1 is limited to 2 drives per array, and RAID 10 is limited to 4 drives per array. Hot-spare functionality is also supported.

VROC NVMe RAID offers RAID support for any NVMe drives directly connected to the ports on the server's system board or via adapters such as NVMe retimers or NVMe switch adapters. On the SR630 V3, RAID levels implemented are based on the VROC feature selected as indicated in the following table. RAID 1 is limited to 2 drives per array, and RAID 10 is limited to 4 drives per array. Hot-spare functionality is also supported.

Performance tip: For best performance with VROC NVMe RAID, the drives in an array should all be connected to the same processor. Spanning processors is possible however performance will be unpredictable and should be evaluated based on your workload.

The SR630 V3 supports the VROC NVMe RAID offerings listed in the following table.

Tip: These feature codes and part numbers are only for VROC RAID using NVMe drives, not SATA drives

Configuration notes:

  • If a feature code is ordered in a CTO build, the VROC functionality is enabled in the factory. For field upgrades, order a part number and it will be fulfilled as a Feature on Demand (FoD) license which can then be activated via the XCC management processor user interface.

  • The following 5th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors do not support Intel VROC RAID1 Only (4L47A92670, BZ4W); Only VROC Standard and VROC Premium are supported:
    • Intel Xeon Bronze 3508U 8C 125W 2.1GHz Processor
    • Intel Xeon Silver 4509Y 8C 125W 2.6GHz Processor
    • Intel Xeon Silver 4510 12C 150W 2.4GHz Processor
    • Intel Xeon Silver 4510T 12C 115W 2.0GHz Processor

Virtualization support: Virtualization support for Intel VROC is as follows:

  • VROC SATA RAID (RSTe): VROC SATA RAID is not supported by virtualization hypervisors such as ESXi, KVM, Xen, and Hyper-V. Virtualization is only supported on the onboard SATA ports in AHCI (non-RAID) mode.
  • VROC (VMD) NVMe RAID: VROC (VMD) NVMe RAID is supported by ESXi, KVM, Xen, and Hyper-V. ESXi support is limited to RAID 1 only; other RAID levels are not supported. Windows and Linux OSes support VROC RAID NVMe, both for host boot functions and for guest OS function, and RAID-0, 1, 5, and 10 are supported. On ESXi, VROC is supported with both boot and data drives.
