    High density, high performance 2-socket blade server optimized for
    Suggested uses: Mainstream virtualization and memory-intensive HPC applications requiring
    high memory density, outstanding performance, and enhanced power efficiency.
    Today’s data center environment is tougher than ever. You’re looking to reduce IT cost,
    complexity, space requirements, energy consumption and heat output, while increasing flexibility,
    utilization and manageability through virtualization. Incorporating IBM X-Architecture
    the IBM
    HS22V 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. Each HS22V blade server offers
    features comparable to many 1U rack-optimized full-featured servers: The HS22V supports up to
    two of the latest high-performance 6-core/4-core/2-core Intel
    5600 series and 5500
    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) to help
    provide the computing power you require to match your business needs and growth. The HS22V
    supports up to 288GB of registered double data rate III (DDR3) ECC (Error Checking and
    Correcting) memory in 18 DIMM slots, with optional Chipkill
    , for high performance
    and reliability. Selected models are planned for NEBS-3/ETSI-compliance.
    The HS22V supports VMware vSphere Hypervisor (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. The HS22V supports approximately
    50% more average virtual machines (VMs) than the HS22. With up to 288GB of memory, the
    HS22V is an outstanding choice for virtualization, in-memory databases, and memory-intensive
    enterprise applications.
    An integrated dual-port Gigabit Ethernet
    controller is standard, providing high-speed data
    transfers and offering TOE (TCP Offload Engine) support, load-balancing and failover
    capabilities. Via optional expansion cards, each blade can also connect to additional Ethernet,
    10Gb Ethernet, Converged Network Adapter (CNA), SAS, Fibre Channel, iSCSI, InfiniBand
    and other high-speed communication switches housed in the chassis. This blade is designed with
    power 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
    HS22V automatically reduces the processor frequency to maintain acceptable thermal and power
    All HS22V models offer impressive features at an equally impressive price, including up to two
    1.8-inch fixed solid-state drives (SSDs) with RAID-0/1 support, and one internal USB flash
    drive (for embedded hypervisor]. Additional direct-attach storage is available via the BladeCenter
    S chassis. Moreover, the HS22V is optimized for diskless operation, offering each blade server
    access to essentially unlimited external storage capacity via Fibre Channel, SAS, or iSCSI.
    A single BladeCenter E or BladeCenter H chassis supports up to 14 hot-swappable 30mm-
    wide HS22V 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 BladeCenter S, designed for SMB and
    mid-market customers, takes integration and affordability to a new level, combining up to 12 hot-
    swap SAS/SATA HDDs (with optional SAS card) and up to 6 blade servers and 4 switches. Not
    only can this save significant data center space (and therefore the cost of floor space and rack
    hardware) compared to 1U servers, it also consolidates switches/bridges and cables for reduced
    Chipkill protection on the HS22V requires x4 DIMMs; Chipkill protection is not available with x8 DIMMs.
    Actual data transfer speed will vary and is often less than the maximum possible. Gigabit Ethernet transfer speed requires support on both
    system and server, and appropriate network infrastructure.
