Memory options

The ThinkServer RD650 supports DDR4 memory. DDR4 memory offers many benefits over older generation DDR3 memory. DDR4 operates at a lower voltage than DDR3L (1.2 V versus 1.5 V) and as a result, it offers significant power savings. In addition, DDR4 memory has higher memory transfer speeds that are up to 2133 MTps, depending on the memory configuration.

Lenovo offers Registered DIMMs (RDIMM) and Load Reduced DIMMs (LR-DIMM) that use a buffer to reduce memory bus loading, which enables greater memory capacities to be achieved.

The server supports up to 12 DIMMs when one processor is installed and up to 24 DIMMs when two processors are installed. Each processor has four memory channels and there are three DIMMs supported per channel. The RD650 supports up to 768 GB of memory at speeds up to 1866 MTps when fully populated. The actual memory speed in the system is determined as the lowest of the memory speed that is supported by the specific CPU or the maximum operating speeds for the memory configuration that is based on the number of DIMMs per channel.

ThinkServer engineering tested and validated system designs that support memory speeds beyond Intel’s original plan, which provides benefits for workloads that require memory speed and density. Lenovo ThinkServer memory is fully supported up to the rated speeds that are shown in the following table.

Table 5. RD650 Maximum Memory Capacities

1 DPC 2133 MHz 128 GB (8x 16 GB) 2133 MHz 256 GB (8x 32 GB)
2 DPC 2133 MHz 256 GB (16x 16 GB) 2133 MHz 512 GB (16x 32 GB)
3 DPC 1600 MHz 384 GB (24x 16 GB) 1866 MHz 768 GB (24x 32 GB)

Protection against data loss is provided through the following memory RAS features: ECC, Patrol and Demand Scrubbing, Sparing, Mirroring, and Lockstep Mode.

Configuration Guidelines

Memory can be configured to meet various needs and workloads subject to the following general rules:

  • Mixing memory type (RDIMM, LR-DIMM) is not supported.
  • DIMM capacities and rank can be mixed.

When you are populating for the various RAS modes the following rules apply:

  • If memory mirroring or lockstep is used, DIMMs must be installed in pairs (minimum of one pair per each CPU), and both DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type, size, and rank.
  • If memory sparing is used, one rank of a DIMM in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory; therefore, Single Rank DIMMs cannot be used. DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type, size, and rank.

Memory Optimization

The memory subsystem can be optimized for various factors, including performance, capacity, or power consumption. Refer to the following guidelines when you are selecting memory options:

  • Guidelines for maximum memory performance:
    • Use all available memory channels (four per processor, eight total per system).
    • Use identical DIMM populations in size and speed across channels.
    • Populate both processors with equal amounts of memory.
    • Use the same number of ranks that are populated per channel.
    • Have at least two ranks available on each channel.
  • Guidelines for lowest memory power consumption:
    • Use fewer, higher capacity DIMMs. For example, a 8x 16 GB DIMM configuration often has lower power requirements than that of a 16x 8 GB DIMM configuration.
    • Populating more DIMMs per channel and the use of less channels (opposite of the previous guidance) reduces overall system power, but at the cost of significant performance reduction.

The following table provides guidelines for selecting memory configurations that are based on performance or capacity. For example, to achieve optimal 2133 MHz performance at a specific capacity, populate up to 16 DIMMs (up to 8 per CPU). To achieve the maximum memory capacity with the highest performance, populate up to 24 sockets with LRDIMMs.

Internal storage

The ThinkServer RD650 implements a new chassis design that allows a greater number of drive bays, which support increased internal storage capacity. The system can be configured to meet exact workload requirements.

Lenovo AnyBay technology

48.EF4.jpgThe RD650 features an industry-unique Lenovo AnyBay design, which allows a choice of SATA, SAS, or PCIe interface drives in the same drive bay. This design enables the flexibility to configure some of the bays with high performance PCIe SSDs and still use the remaining bays for high capacity HDDs, which is an ideal solution for storage-tiering. The RD650 supports up to four AnyBay drive bays.

Note: Support for PCIe interface drives in the AnyBay design is planned.

Chassis features and functions

The RD650 supports three basic chassis types, including systems that support 2.5-inch drive bays, 3.5-inch drive bays, and a hybrid chassis that supports both 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drive bays.

All chassis types optionally support two 2.5-inch hot-swap SATA drives in the rear of the server. When the two rear drives are used, the AnyRAID 720ix controller is required.

All chassis types also support enterprise M.2 SSD and SD memory cards, which can be used as boot drives. M.2 is a form factor of SSD with a small footprint. The RD650 supports two M.2 SSDs that can be configured as RAID-1 with the AnyRAID 110i or 720ix controllers. The RD650 supports two SD memory cards via an optional module that is connected to USB ports on the system board. SD memory cards can be configured redundantly by using the operating system. The SD cards are enabled via a USB port from the system board Platform Controller Hub (PCH) and do not require a RAID controller.

This section describes the base chassis configurations with varying numbers of drive bays and the key features of each configuration.

2.5-inch chassis

The 2.5-inch chassis supports configurations with up to 8, 16, or 24 hot-swap small form factor HDDs or SSDs. Figure 5 shows the RD650 2.5-inch chassis supporting 24 drives.

49.307A.jpg
Figure 6. RD650 2.5-inch Chassis supporting 24 drives

The 24 drive bay configuration can also be configured to support four AnyBay drive bays or upgraded with the upgrade kit, as shown in Table 9.

One slim optional optical disk drive is available for the 2.5-inch chassis with up to 16 drives.

Additionally, one LTO6 half-height tape drive with support for 2.5 TB tape cartridges can be configured with the 8x 2.5-inch drive chassis. The following table shows the 2.5-inch chassis mechanical features of each drive bay configuration.

8 Yes Yes No
16 Yes No No
24 No No Yes

An available option kit can be purchased to upgrade an 8-bay chassis to a 16-bay or 24-bay chassis (see Table 9).

3.5-inch chassis

The 3.5-inch chassis supports configurations with up to 6 or 12 hot-swap HDDs or SSDs. The following figure shows the RD650 3.5-inch drive bay chassis.

Controllers for internal storage

57.560.jpgThinkServer® AnyRAID is Lenovo’s uniquely designed RAID portfolio that is available on the next-generation ThinkServer systems. AnyRAID cards are deployed in a midplane format and connected directly to the drive backplane, without the use of a PCIe slot.

With a comprehensive portfolio, Lenovo ThinkServer AnyRAID controllers are available for various applications and include software, I/O controller (IOC), and RAID-on-chip based (RoC) solutions.

Along with a broad RAID controller selection, Lenovo offers options, such as upgrade keys for software and IOC-based controllers, read-only and protected cache options, and advanced caching, and SSD acceleration software. To ensure investment protection, RAID configurations, data, and most options can transfer intact when you upgrade to a more advanced controller. ThinkServer AnyRAID options are common across the Lenovo ThinkServer next-generation portfolio.

Lenovo offers the following ThinkServer AnyRAID controllers to provide coverage for various business and technical requirements:

  • Lenovo ThinkServer AnyRAID 110i is a software RAID controller that offers a low-cost solution for light workloads with limited users.
  • Lenovo ThinkServer AnyRAID 510i is an IOC-based RAID card that offers an affordable hardware controller that delivers performance and reliability.
  • Lenovo ThinkServer AnyRAID 720i is a RoC-based controller that offers advanced RAID configurations, protection, and software.
  • Lenovo ThinkServer AnyRAID 720ix is similar to the AnyRAID 720i, but contains an onboard SAS expander to support up to 26 drives.

The following table summarizes the features and specifications of RAID controllers.

I/O expansion

The Lenovo RD650 offers various I/O options for ultimate flexibility, which provides support for the most demanding application requirements. The server provides a 1 Gb Ethernet port for management and I/O options are available in AnyFabric and standard PCIe adapter formats.

AnyFabric

59.129A.jpgLenovo ThinkServer AnyFabric adapters are a collection of network interface controllers (NICs), HBAs, and CNAs that are offered in a mezzanine card format. Designed to provide various connectivity options while still allowing flexible expansion, AnyFabric adapters do not occupy a PCIe slot.

AnyFabric adapters operate by using a PCIe bus channel, which supports up to PCIe v3.0. Based on technology from industry leaders Intel and Emulex, these adapters provide world-class NIC, HBA, and CNA features. While they occupy minimal space in the server chassis that is similar to an onboard adapter, they allow flexibility that is not available with a built-in adapter. Any adapter easily can be swapped for another AnyFabric adapter.

The following figure shows the location of the AnyFabric slot in the RD650.

RD650 Rear View - Riser Card Expansion Slots and AnyFabric Slot
Figure 9. RD650 rear view showing the riser card expansion slots and AnyFabric slot

PCIe slots

The RD650 also provides up to eight PCIe 3.0 slots: three slots on the system planar and up to five more slots via two riser cards. The slots that are available for use depend on the following number of riser cards that are installed and whether processor 2 is installed:

  • One CPU and no riser cards: No PCIe slots are available
  • Two CPUs and no riser cards: Up to three PCIe slots are available (slots 4, 7, 8)
  • One CPU and a single riser card in riser slot 1: Up to three PCIe slots are available (slots 1, 2, 3)
  • Two CPUs and a single riser card in riser slot 2: Up to five PCIe slots are available (slots 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
  • Adding a second riser card with two CPUs: Up to eight PCIe slots are available (all slots)

The following table provides more information about the supported PCIe slots.

Supported configurations

The RD650 supports several configurations that can be selected based on the wanted server configuration, workload, or reliability requirements.

The server can be ordered with a single power supply or with two power supplies for 1 + 1 redundancy in the unlikely event of a power supply failure. Active-active and active-passive forms of redundancy are supported, which are configurable through IPMI (command-line interface).

Installing two different wattage power supplies is not supported; the lower wattage power supply is disabled, which eliminates redundancy.

The size of the power supply should be chosen based on the system configuration. If an installed power supply is smaller than the demand that is placed on it, power usage is capped with a potential impact on system performance.

If a UPS is used with the RD650, the output of the UPS should be of a pure sine wave.

Systems management

A significant factor in the total cost of a server’s ownership is the processes that are used for administering the system hardware, software, and support over the life of the server. Lenovo’s ThinkServer system management offerings are based on industry standards, which enable integration into existing IT environments. Lenovo’s tools emphasize provisioning and operational management, which is a large portion of the system cost. Optional upgrades provide more management capabilities to optimize performance and usage of the servers.

Deployment

Embedded within every Lenovo next-generation ThinkServer system, ThinkServer Deployment Manager is a tools suite that provides a complete set of provisioning capabilities from a single interface. ThinkServer Deployment Manager automates many of the tasks that are associated with server provisioning, including hardware configuration, operating system deployment, device driver (for operating system installation), firmware updates, and server cloning. Because ThinkServer Deployment Manager is integrated into the UEFI pre-boot environment, the tools operate independently of the server and are available regardless of system’s operational state. Formatting a system drive or reinstalling the operating system does not remove the tools, and there are no CDs or DVDs to retrieve or store, which affects user experience or productivity.

Remote Systems Management

ThinkServer System Manager (TSM) is Lenovo’s integrated systems management technology is standard on all next-generation ThinkServer systems. TSM operates independently of the server. It provides hardware-based, out-of-band remote access and management to ThinkServer systems, regardless of the server’s power state or the condition of the operating system.

TSM is a fully featured management solution that is built on open industry standards that can help reduce related IT expenses by increasing a server administrator’s productivity. TSM provides important health and status information to systems administrators. It also enables administrators to remotely perform most functions that otherwise require a visit to the server.

TSM can be used as part of any server systems management infrastructure and is well-suited for customers who are deploying servers in remote branches, limited-access data centers, and where one-on one remote-control capability is required. Lenovo’s design advancements address key system management concerns. In particular, TSM is a low-cost solution that supports heterogeneous environments, provides full remote management capability, and supports remote deployment.

TSM offers the following choices in management Ethernet connections that are configurable in BIOS or the TSM:

  • Shared:
    • Port zero on any Ethernet AnyFabric mezzanine card is supported
    • VLANs supported to provide separation between in-band network and TSM
    • 10 Mbps maximum TSM bandwidth on 1 GbE mezzanine cards
    • 100 Mbps maximum TSM bandwidth on 10 GbE mezzanine cards
  • Dedicated:
    • Uses separate network port
    • Provides complete physical separation between Mezzanine 0 and TSM
    • 1 Gbps maximum TSM bandwidth

TSM provides the following key features:

  • Remote server management through the following industry standard interfaces:
    • Secure HTML5 web browser GUI that is suitable for today’s mobile devices and tablets
    • IPMI 2.0
    • DCMI 1.0
    • WS-MAN
    • SMASH-CLP
    • SNMP v3 (Gets only)
  • A PowerShell CLI provides increased flexibility and scripting capabilities
  • Automatic out-of-band notification and alerts from:
    • SNMP Traps
    • SMTP (email)
    • CIM indications
  • Configurable via web and PowerShell CLI, IPMI, WS-Man, and SMASH-CLI interfaces

ThinkServer System Manager Premium, which is available as an optional hardware upgrade key, enables the following advanced features:

  • A remote console that provides complete remote control of the server. A video viewer enables graphical console, keyboard, and mouse redirection of the server.
  • Remote media capability that enables the attachment of local CD-ROMs, DVD-ROMs, USB mass storage devices, ISO images, and IMG images (which are created from local folders) to the remote server.
  • Support for power monitoring and management with the separately available ThinkServer Energy Manager tool. Energy Manager is a stand-alone, web-based, power management console that enables you to observe, plan, and manage server power usage to decrease power and cooling needs, which helps to lower your total cost of ownership. Energy Manager uses TSM to capture real-time power and temperature data from the ThinkServer system, which analyzes the data to optimize server power consumption and workload placement and provides controls to limit the maximum server power that is used.

The following table lists ThinkServer System Manager Premium ordering information.

ThinkServer Energy Manager

Lenovo ThinkServer Energy Manager (TEM) provides power management for servers, which enables server density and data center capacity to be increased through use of power capping.

TEM is an agent-less, web-based console that tracks and analyzes real-time power usage and thermal data for servers and other supported devices in the data center. With this data, administrators can plan and manage server power and cooling. By using built-in intelligence, TEM identifies power usage trends, ideal power settings, and cooling analysis so that you can develop power-saving usage policies that adjust server power caps that are based on server utilization, business conditions, and power usage trends.

When a user-defined power or temperature threshold is reached, an alert can be generated to inform you of the event. An emergency feature can automatically help maintain business continuity; when power outages or temperature events occur, TEM can dynamically cap power to shed load and distribute remaining power to servers that are prioritizing business-critical workloads.

With the ability to monitor, analyze, and control the power and cooling of Lenovo and non-Lenovo servers, TEM enables you to take control of power management and reduce operational costs.

A single TEM license is included with all next-generation servers with TSM Premium. Licenses are available for next-generation servers without TSM, selected fourth generation ThinkServer systems, and certain third-party servers via Node License Packs, as shown in the following table. Users of Lenovo Smart Grid can upgrade to TEM at no charge.

Thermal specifications

The RD650 can run at 45°C continuously without time restrictions, which is an industry first. This ability provides value in data centers that can or intend to use new energy efficient cooling technologies and organizations that install their servers in segregated (or less-controlled) environments.

Lenovo carefully designed and tested the RD650 to address concerns about long-term reliability. Specifically, the following measures were taken:

  • Stringent component temperature and voltage de-rating requirements were adopted to insure reliable operation across all supported environments.
  • Components are placed in the system for optimal airflow. With advanced thermal control, temperatures of critical components are often lower at higher ambient temperatures than in normal environments.
  • The system design was thoroughly tested across the entire A4 temperature range.

The following table shows system environmental specifications for the RD650.

Table 28. Temperature, humidity and altitude specifications
