CONTENTS Product Overview Selling Features Key Features Key Options HS22 Images HS22 Specifications The Bottom Line Server Comparison For More Information Legal Information 1 2 4 14 16 16 19 20 21 21 Today’s data center environment is tougher than ever. You’re looking to reduce IT cost, complexity, space requirements, energy consumption and heat output, whileincreasing ™ ® flexibility, utilization and manageability. Incorporating IBM X-Architecture features, the IBM ® BladeCenter HS22 blade server, combined with the various BladeCenter chassis, can help you accomplish all of these goals. Reducing an entire server into as little as .5U of rack space (i.e., up to 14 servers in 7U) does not mean trading away features and capabilities for smaller size. EachHS22 blade server offers features comparable to many 1U rack-optimized full-featured servers: The HS22 supports up to ® ® two of the latest high-performance or low-voltage 6-core, 4-core, and 2-core Intel Xeon 5500 series and 5600 series processors.. The Xeon processors are designed with up to 12MB of shared cache and leading-edge memory performance (up to 1333MHz, depending on processor model) tohelp provide the computing power you require to match your business needs and growth. The HS22 supports up to 192GB of registered double data rate III (DDR3) ™ ECC (Error Checking and Correcting) memory in 12 DIMM slots, with optional Chipkill 1 protection , for high performance and reliability. Selected models are planned for NEBS-3/ETSIcompliance. The HS22 offers an option for VMware vSphereHypervisor (formerly ESXi) preloaded on a standard USB flash drive. It operates in a diskless configuration, offers a smaller memory footprint, extremely high performance, and stronger security, making getting a system up and running in a virtualized environment faster and easier than ever before. An integrated dual-port Gigabit Ethernet controller is standard, providing high-speed data transfers andoffering TOE (TCP Offload Engine) support, load-balancing and failover capabilities. Via optional expansion cards, each blade can also connect to additional Ethernet, ™, SAS, Fibre Channel, iSCSI, InfiniBand and other high-speed communication switches housed in the chassis. Optional 2-port and 4-port Expansion Cards add additional fabrics to the HS22 server as needed. This blade is designed withpower management capability to provide the maximum uptime possible for your systems. In extended thermal conditions or power brownouts, rather than shut down completely, or fail, the HS22 automatically reduces the processor frequency to maintain acceptable thermal and power levels. All HS22 models offer impressive features at an equally impressive price, including up to two hot-swap SAS or SATAhard disk drives or two hot-swap solid-state drives with RAID0/1/1E support, and one USB-based internal flash drive (for embedded hypervisor]. Additional storage is available via the BladeCenter S chassis. Moreover, the HS22 is optimized for diskless operation, offering each blade server access to essentially unlimited external storage capacity via Fibre Channel, SAS, or iSCSI. A single BladeCenterE or BladeCenter H chassis supports up to 14 hot-swappable 30mmwide HS22 blades in only 7U (BladeCenter E) or 9U (BladeCenter H) of rack space or up to 12 in the 12U BladeCenter HT high-speed telecommunications chassis. In addition to the blade servers, these chassis also hold up to 4 switches (BladeCenter E) or up to 10 (BladeCenter H) or 8 switches/bridges (BladeCenter HT) internally. The...
