IBM Power7+ 8231-E2D Express 730 iSeries AIX Linux

IBM Power7 8231-E2D Express 730
The IBM Power7 8231-E2D is Model 730 Express server that is a high-performance, energy-efficient, reliable, and secure application server iSeries, AIX and Linux workloads. Tjhe IBM Power7 8231-E2D Server is a 2U rack-mount server with two processor sockets offering 8-core 4.3 GHz Processor, 12-core 4.2 GHz Processor, and 16-core 3.6 GHz Processor or 4.2 GHz Processor configurations. The new Power7+ 730 Express model 8231-E2D provides increased performance over the Power7 processors and expanded I/O capabilities using the high-performance Gen2 PCIe interfaces, and adds the capability of additional I/O through the 12x PCIe I/O expansion drawers.

The IBM Power7 8231-E2D 730 Express server supports a maximum of 16 DDR3 DIMM slots, with four DIMM slots included in the base configuration and 12 DIMM slots available with three optional memory riser cards, allowing for a maximum system memory of 512 GB. Memory features (two memory DIMMs per feature) supported are 8 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB and run at speeds of 1066 MHz. The Power7+ hardware accelerator for Active Memory Expansion provides 25% higher levels of memory expansion than available with POWER7 chips. While Power7 Systems offer up to 100% memory expansion, which can double the server's maximum memory for iSeries workloads, Power7+ servers offer up to 125% memory expansion for AIX partitions. The Power7+ memory expansion can enhance virtualization and server consolidation by allowing a partition to do significantly more work with the same physical amount of memory or a server to run more partitions and do more work with the same physical amount of memory.
