9009-41G Datasheet  |  9009-41G and 42G Performance Benchmarks

The 9009-41G is a single socket, 4U system that support up to 1TB of memory via 16 DDR4 DIMM slots. The amount of internal and external SSD and disk drive space is determined by various configuration factors. The IBM Power9 9009-41G S914 systems are powered entirely by a Gen4 PCIe architecture (slots, switches and lanes), supporting up to 14 NVMe devices, designed for mission critical applications and I/O intensive workloads.

The 9009-41G S914 IBM Power9 system with EP52 8-core processor can have up 122,500 CPW (15,313 CPW per active processor), and has a 2.3 to 3.8 GHz chip speed. The new Power9 RAID Controllers and other SAS adapters provide significant I/O performance gains that should be considered for improving IBM i response times and throughput. All Power9 system models support 220V power, and the 9009-41G and  9009-41A S914 models can also run on 110V. All Power9 models have three backplane options, a 12 SFF-3 Bays, a 18 SFF-3 bays with write cache or a 12 SFF-3 bays with dual IOA and write cache. IBM i workloads require 4k byte block hard disk drives or SSD. If you need to boot more than one Virtual IO server from internal disks, your Power9 system needs to the split backplane feature and a minimum of four disks (two per Virtual IO Server). Every IBM i Power9 model support adding 28 EXP24SX I/O expansion drawer and the IBM EMX0 PCIe I/O expansion drawer (28 is the maximum combined quantity).

Reliability, Availability and Serviceability (RAS) Features:

  • POWER9 processor has the ability to do processor instruction retry for some transient errors
  • Memory subsystem RAS with error detection and correction circuitry
    Chip kill memory
  • Service processor with proactive fault monitoring
  • Dynamic Processor Deallocation
  • Alternate Processor Recovery
  • Cache availability: L2 and L3 cache protected with ECC
  • Special Uncorrectable Error (SUE) handling prevents immediate system termination
  • PCI extended error handling (EEH) that allows the affected device driver to reset and continue without a system reboot
  • Uncorrectable error recovery, when enabled, allows the system to automatically restart, reducing downtime
  • Mutual surveillance: Service processor monitors the operation of firmware and the hypervisor monitors the service processor
  • Environmental monitoring does ambient and over temperature monitoring and reporting
  • Concurrent maintenance of PCIe adapter, power supplies, cooling fans and HDD/SSD drives
  • First Failure Data Capture (FFDC): Fault root cause is captured without the need to re-create the problem
  • Mobile access to important customer service functions available by scanning a QR label
