IBM 8231-E1D Power 710 Server

The IBM 8231-E1D Power 710 Server is a high performance, easy to own, energy efficient, simple and completely reliable server. The IBM 8231-E1D Power 710 Server is fueled by the outstanding performance of
the POWER7 processor with a choice of AIX, IBM i or Linux operating systems and solutions from thousands of ISVs that can set your business apart from the competition. The leadership performance of the POWER7 processor makes it possible for applications to run faster with fewer processors, resulting in lower per core software licensing costs. In addition, a single system can now run more applications and reduce the number of required servers lowering infrastructure costs. The IBM 8231-E1D Power 710 Server adds increased memory capacity and high bandwidth Generation 2 PCI-Express slots to provide even greater performance capabilities. The Power 710 Express implements Light Path diagnostics, which provide an obvious and intuitive means to positively identify failing components. This allows system engineers and administrators to easily and quickly diagnose hardware problems. Hardware failures that may have taken hours to locate and diagnose can now be detected in minutes, avoiding or significantly reducing costly downtime.

The IBM 8231-E1D Power 710 Server is designed with capabilities to deliver leading-edge application availability and allow more work to be processed with less operational disruption. RAS capabilities include recovery from intermittent errors or failover to redundant components, detection and reporting of failures and impending failures, and self-healing hardware that automatically initiates actions to effect error correction, repair or component replacement. In addition, the Processor Instruction Retry feature provides for the continuous monitoring of processor status with the capability to restart a processor if certain errors are detected. If required, workloads are redirected to alternate processors, all without disruption to application execution. Take advantage of the scalability and capacity of the IBM 8231-E1D Power 710 Server by leveraging our industrial-strength PowerVM technology to fully utilize the system. PowerVM allows any individual LPAR to access the maximum amount of memory and CPU cores that are available in the server.
PowerVM offers this capability to dynamically adjust system resources to partitions based on workload demands, enabling a dynamic infrastructure that dramatically reduces server sprawl via massive consolidation of applications and servers. In addition, optional components in PowerVM Editions are designed to provide advanced virtualization technologies, resulting in efficiencies in resource utilization and cost savings.
