IBM System x3650 M3 Server
CPU: Duel Xeon X5650 (2.6/12cache/6Core)
Memory: 128GB Ram DDR3 12800R (8*16GB)
Storage: 8*HDD 600GB 10K 6GBPS 2.5
Network: Quad port network card
This 2U-high, rack-optimized server features superior power, optimized performance, and leadership virtualization and systems management for businesscritical workloads built on IBM X-Architecture®
The x3650 M3 offers a flexible, scalable design and simple upgrade path to 16 HDDs or SSDs plus an
optical drive, and up to 288 GB of memory. In addition, a built-in altimeter provides more efficient power
utilization and lower noise levels. Comprehensive systems management tools such as advanced
diagnostics, a cable management arm, and the ability to control resources from a single point make it
easy to deploy, integrate, service, and manage
The x3650 M3 offers numerous features to boost performance and reduce costs:
Up to two 6-core Xeon 5600 series processors offering superior performance. Xeon 5600 series
processors offer up to 54% better performance than the previous generation 5500 series processors
Eighteen DIMMs of registered 1333 MHz DDR3 ECC memory provide speed, high availability, and a
memory capacity of up to 288 GB.
High-performance 6 Gbps SAS RAID controllers and 15K RPM 6 Gbps SAS disk drives in a variety of
capacities to suit your local storage requirements.
The use of solid-state drives (SSDs) instead of or along with traditional spinning drives (HDDs) can
significantly improve I/O performance. An SSD can support 20,000 I/O operations per second (IOPS)
whereas a typical HDD handles fewer than 500 IOPS.
The x3650 M3 has the ability to grow with your application requirements with these features:
A choice of 4-core or 6-core processors with clock rates from 1.6 GHz to 3.6 GHz.
18 DIMM sockets allowing memory expansion of up to 288 GB.
A choice of power supplies including 460 W, 675 W AC or DC, or energy-efficient 675 W.
Five or six USB 2.0 ports available – two front, two rear, one internal for an embedded hypervisor, plus one additional internal port when the optional Tape Enablement Kit is installed.
Storage bay flexibility: Up to 16 hot-swap 2.5″ drive bays for SAS or SATA HDDs, or solid-state drives (intermixing supported); or eight 2.5″ bays plus an internal tape drive bay.
Direct-attach SAS storage with the EXP2512, EXP2524, and EXP3000 storage enclosures is supported. IBM System Storage servers, including network-attached storage (NAS), and iSCSI or Fibre Channel-attached storage, can also be attached.
The x3650 M3 provides four PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 x8 I/O slots for increased network or storage connectivity
Disk drive bays Up to 16 2.5″ hot-swap SAS/SATA HDDs or solid-state drives.
Maximum internal storage Up to 25.6 TB with 1.6 TB SSDs, or
Up to 19.2 TB with 1.2 TB SAS HDDs, or
Up to 16.0 TB with 1 TB SATA HDDs
Intermix of SAS/SATA/SSD is supported.
RAID support RAID 0, 1, 1E with ServeRAID-BR10il v2 or M1015; RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, 50 with M5014 or M5015. Optional upgrade to RAID 5 is available for M1015. Optional upgrade to RAID 6, 60 is available for M5014/M5015.
Optical drive bays One, support for DVD-ROM or Multiburner. Separate bay.
Tape drive bays Optional Tape Enablement Kit is available to support one DDS5, DDS6, or RDX internal tape drive. If used, the maximum number of HDD bays is limited to 8.
UEFI, IBM Integrated Management Module (IMM), Predictive Failure Analysis, Light Path
Diagnostics, Automatic Server Restart, IBM Systems Director* and IBM Systems Director Active
Energy Manager™, IBM ServerGuide. Optional Virtual Media Key for remote presence
(graphics, keyboard and mouse, virtual media).
x3650 M3 supports up to four integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports. Two ports are standard, and two ports can be added by installing the optional Dual-port Gigabit Ethernet Daughter card, 46M1076. This card uses a dedicated connector on the motherboard and does not consume a PCI expansion slot.
Integrated NICs have the following features: Broadcom BCM5709 chip.TCP Offload Engine (TOE) support. Wake on LAN support. 802.1Q VLAN tagging support. NIC Teaming (load balancing and failover
The System x3650 M3 server includes a standard 460-watt or 675-watt hot-swap power supply (model dependent). Either power supply supplies sufficient power to run the server.
