IBM 8231-E2D Power 730 Server

The IBM 8231-E2D Power 730 Server is a two-socket high performance, reliable and energy-efficient server supporting up to sixteen POWER7 cores and a choice of AIX®, IBM i or Linux operating systems. Combine the outstanding performance with PowerVM and the workload-optimizing capabilities of POWER7 and you are now ready to run multiple application and infrastructure workloads in a virtualized environment while driving higher utilization and reducing costs. The IBM 8231-E2D Power 730 Server is designed with capabilities to deliver leading-edge application availability and allow more work to be processed with less operational disruption. RAS capabilities of the IBM 8231-E2D Power 730 Server 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.

The IBM 8231-E2D Power 730 Server 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. EnergyScale™ Technology offers Intelligent Energy management features, which can dramatically and dynamically conserve power and further improve energy efficiency. These Intelligent Energy features enable the POWER7 processor to operate at a higher frequency if environmental conditions permit, for increased performance and performance per watt; or alternatively operate at a reduced frequency if user settings permit, for significant energy savings.
