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 SR650 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 SR650 V3 server.

CTO models for NVIDIA Bluefield SmartNIC DPUs

The SR650 V3 supports the new VMware vSphere Distributed Services Engine (DSE) using the NVIDIA Bluefield SmartNIC Data Processing Unit (DPU). This solution improves the performance of VMware vSphere by offloading tasks from server CPUs to the DPU thereby making data center applications more efficient.

VMware vSphere Distributed Services Engine is only available in CTO builds using the DPU-specific models listed in the following table.

For more information, see the DPU adapter section.

Processor features

Processors supported by the SR650 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 SR650 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 4TB maximum
  • Rear slots: Slot 1-3 (riser 1) and slots 7-8 (riser 3) are available; (Slots 4-6 in Riser 2 are not available)
  • Front slots: Slot 12 (Slot 11 is not available)

Drive support is as follows:

  • Front SAS/SATA drives are supported - 8, 16, 24 drives (2.5-inch) or 8, 12 drives (3.5-inch)
  • Front NVMe drives are supported - up to 8 drives (2.5-inch) or 4 drives (3.5-inch)
  • Rear SAS/SATA drives are supported - 4x 3.5-inch drives or up to 4x 2.5-inch drives
  • M.2 drives are supported
  • 7mm rear drives are supported

Controller support is as follows:

  • 12x onboard SATA
  • 12x NVMe (8x onboard + 1x 4-port retimer adapter)
  • RAID adapters/HBAs installed in slots 1-3
  • Internal RAID/HBA controller (CFF form factor) with SAS/SATA-only configurations

Riser 3 is supported under the following conditions:

  • No onboard NVMe connections are available
  • With the x8/x8 PCIe G4 Riser3 (BHZX) selected, Slots 7 and 8 are both connected each with x8 lanes
  • With the x16/x16 PCIe G4 Riser3 (BHZY) selected, Slot 7 is connected with x16 lanes; Slot 8 is not connected

The following components are not supported:

  • Front AnyBay drives are not supported (except 8x SAS/SATA + 4x AnyBay 3.5-inch which is supported)
  • Middle NVMe drive bays are not supported (SAS/SATA is supported)
  • Rear 4x 3.5-inch drive bay backplane (this backplane gets power from Riser 2 which requires CPU 2)

Thermal requirements for processors

For thermal requirements for processors, see the Thermal Rules section in the Information Center for the SR650 V3:
https://pubs.lenovo.com/sr650-v3/thermal_rules

Lenovo Neptune Processor DWC Module - Open-loop liquid cooling

The SR650 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 23% (up to 9.9KW per rack) are possible, based on 18x SR650 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 7. 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 22. Ordering information
Part number Feature code Description
CTO only BXBC* ThinkSystem V3 1U/2U Neptune Processor Direct Water Cooling Module

* In DCSC, this feature code is listed in the Processor tab

Configuration notes:

  • The Neptune Processor DWC Module requires water infrastructure be available in the rack cabinet and data center, as described in the Water infrastructure section.
  • All processor SKUs are supported, including 350W processors
  • Either one or two CPUs are supported
  • All front drive bay configurations are supported
  • Slot 6 is not available for adapters - the water loop is routed through the space otherwise occupied by slot 6
  • Rear drive bays are supported
  • 7mm drive bays are supported only in slot 3
  • M.2 adapters are supported based on the configurations in the Storage configurations section
  • Standard fans can be configured in most configurations
  • The use of a cable management arm (CMA) is not supported

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

  • 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 SR650 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 SR650 V3 has three drive bay zones and supports up to 20x 3.5-inch or 40x 2.5-inch hot-swap drive bays or a combination of drive bays, depending on the selected chassis and backplane configuration. The server also supports configurations without any drive bays if desired.

The three drive bay zones are as follows:

  • Front:
    • Up to 12x 3.5-inch hot-swap bays, or
    • Up to 24x 2.5-inch hot-swap bays
  • Middle:
    • 4x 3.5-inch hot-swap bays, or
    • 8x 2.5-inch hot-swap bays
  • Rear:
    • Up to 4x 3.5-inch hot-swap bays, or
    • Up to 8x 2.5-inch hot-swap bays
    • Also supports 2x 7mm hot-swap drives bays

All drives are hot-swap and are accessible from the front, from the rear, or from drive bays that are located in the middle of the server (accessible when you remove the top cover of the server).

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 SR650 V3 supports NVMe drives to maximize storage performance.

  • Up to 36 NVMe drives in a 2.5-inch drive configuration, without oversubscription (that is, each x4 drive has a dedicated x4 (4 lanes) connection to the processor, either direct to the processor or via a retimer adapter)
    • Up to 24 installed in front bays
    • Up to 28 installed in the front and rear bays
    • Up to 32 installed in front and mid bays
    • Up to 36 installed in front, mid and rear bays
  • Up to 8 NVMe drives in a 3.5-inch drive configuration, without oversubscription
    • All installed in mid bays

Riser 3 support: The use of the onboard NVMe ports is mutually exclusive with Riser 3, as these use the same PCIe connectors. See the System architecture section.

The specifics of these configurations are covered in the Storage configurations section. The tables in those sections indicate the number of NVMe drives in each configuration.

In addition, the SR650 V3 supports two 7mm NVMe drives for use as boot drives. These two drives optionally support RAID via Intel VROC.

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:

  • 8x or 12x 3.5-inch drive bays (all hot-swap)
  • 8x, 16x or 24x 2.5-inch drive bays (all hot-swap)
  • 4x 2.5-inch drive bays (all hot-swap) with support for front PCIe slots
  • No backplanes and no drives (supports field upgrades)

The specific combinations that are supported in the SR650 V3 are shown in the following figures. The feature codes listed are the backplane feature codes when ordering CTO and correspond to the feature codes listed in the table below the figure. Note that NVMe and AnyBay backplanes may be available either PCIe Gen4 (G4) or PCIe Gen5 (G5) as listed in the figures.

* Backplane has an onboard SAS expander that provides connectivity to front SAS/SATA drive bays using only an 8-port controller, plus support for 4x rear drives in a separate backplane (order the rear backplane separately). See below for additional information and requirements.

The use of front drive bays has the following configuration rules:

  • The SR650 V3 also supports configurations without any drive bays, allowing for drive bay upgrades as described in the field upgrades section.
  • Most backplanes require connections to controllers that provides enough ports to connect each drive (eg 8 ports for an 8-bay backplane). The only exceptions to that are the backplanes with built-in SAS expanders - these backplanes require a fewer number of controller ports to connect to the front drives, and also include a connection to up to 4x rear drive bays. Connections to mid-chassis backplanes or to 8x rear drive bays require additional controller ports. Supported connections are as follows:
    • For the ThinkSystem 2U 12x3.5" SAS/SATA with Rear 4-Bay Expander Backplane, feature BQ2S:
      • 12x3.5" front drives only: requires a single 8i controller
      • 12x3.5” + 4x3.5” (Rear): requires a single 8i controller, 8i to front+rear
      • 12x3.5” + 4x3.5” (Mid): requires 16i controller - 8i to front, 8i to middle
      • 12x3.5” + 4x3.5” (Mid) + 4x3.5” (Rear): requires 16i controller, 8i to front+rear, 8i to middle
    • For the ThinkSystem 2U 24x2.5" SAS/SATA with Rear 4-Bay Expander Backplane, feature BQ2T:
      • 24x2.5” front drives only: requires a single 8i controller
      • 24x2.5” + 4x2.5” (Rear): requires a single 8i controller, 8i to front+rear
      • 24x2.5” + 8x2.5” (Mid): requires 16i controller - 8i to front, 8i to middle
      • 24x2.5” + 8x2.5” (Mid) + 8x2.5” (Rear): requires 32i controller - 8i to front, 8i to middle, 8i to rear

    For specifics configurations, see the Storage configurations section.

  • If you are building a server configuration that includes the ThinkSystem 2U 24x2.5" SAS/SATA with Rear 4-Bay Expander Backplane (feature BQ2T) and the order also includes a rack cabinet, then you can configure at most 6 drives to be installed in the factory. The remaining drives must be ordered separately using the option part numbers for the drives. This requirement does not apply if the order does not include a rack cabinet. The requirement is due to the shock/vibration limits of the 24x 2.5-inch backplane.
  • If 3.5-inch front drive bays are used, an internal (CFF) RAID adapter or HBA is not supported as the adapter and bays occupy the same physical space
  • Any 8x 2.5-inch and 16x 2.5-inch drive configuration (SAS/SATA, AnyBay, or NVMe) can optionally be configured for use with the Integrated Diagnostics Panel as described in the Local management section. 3.5-inch drive configurations do not support the Integrated Diagnostics Panel. With the Integrated Diagnostics Display, 8-bay configurations can be upgrade to 16 bays, however 16-bay configurations cannot be upgrade to 24 bays.

Mid drive bays

The SR650 V3 supports hot-swap drives installed in the middle of the server chassis. The drive bays are accessible by removing the top lid of the server and levering the mid drive chassis up at the front.

The following configurations are supported:

  • 4x 3.5-inch hot-swap SAS/SATA drive bays
  • 8x 2.5-inch hot-swap SAS/SATA drive bays
  • 8x 2.5-inch hot-swap NVMe drive bays

The drive bays in the open position are shown in the following figure.

M.2 support: When mid drive bays are configured, the M.2 adapter is installed on the mid drive bay mechanical as shown in the images.

‡ 2.5-inch drive backplanes for the mid-chassis area must be installed in pairs. NVMe and SAS/SATA cannot be mixed.

Field upgrades: Backplanes are available as part numbers for field upgrades along with require cable option kits, as described in the Field upgrades section below.

The use of drive bays in the mid-chassis area has the following configuration rules:

  • All processors are supported. Higher TDP processors will require the performance heatsinks.
  • Full-length adapter cards are not supported
  • GPUs (including low profile GPUs such as the NVIDIA A2) are not supported
  • The use of mid drive bays requires Riser 1 be installed, since power for the mid bay backplanes comes from Riser 1

Rear drive bays

The SR650 V3 supports hot-swap drives installed at the rear of the server chassis. Supported configurations are as follows:

  • 3.5-inch hot-swap drives
    • 2x SAS/SATA drive bays
    • 4x SAS/SATA drive bays
  • 2.5-inch hot-swap drives
    • 4x SAS/SATA drive bays
    • 4x NVMe Gen5 drive bays
    • 4x AnyBay Gen5 drive bays
    • 8x SAS/SATA drive bays

The configurations are shown in the following figure.

Field upgrades: Backplanes are available as part numbers for field upgrades along with require cable option kits, as described in the Field upgrades section below.

The use of rear drive bays has the following configuration rules:

  • The use of rear bays restricts the number of slots and the choice of risers that are supported. See the I/O expansion section for details.
  • The use of rear drive bays may require that Riser 1 or Riser 2 be installed, since power for the rear backplane comes from that riser.
  • Configurations with 4x 2.5-inch rear drive bays are not supported with 7mm drive bays, as they use the same power connector

Storage configurations

This section describes the various combinations of front and rear drives that the server supports, as well as M.2 support.
