Memory options
IBM DDR3 memory is compatibility tested and tuned for optimal IBM System x® performance and
throughput. IBM memory specifications are integrated into the light path diagnostics for immediate system
performance feedback and optimum system uptime. From a service and support standpoint, IBM memory
automatically assumes the IBM system warranty, and IBM provides service and support worldwide.
The IBM System x3550 M4 supports DDR3 memory. The server supports up to 12 DIMMs when one
processor is installed, and up to 24 DIMMs when two processors are installed. Each processor has four
memory channels, and there are three DIMMs per channel.
The following rules apply when selecting the memory configuration:

Server supports UDIMMs (E5-2600 only), RDIMMs, and LRDIMMs.

Mixing different types of memory (UDIMMs, RDIMMs, and LRDIMMs) is not supported.
IBM System x3550 M4
16

Mixing 1.5 V and 1.35 V DIMMs in the same server is supported; in such cases, all DIMMs operate at
1.5 V.

The maximum number of ranks supported per one channel is eight (with the exception of Load
Reduced DIMMs, where more than eight ranks are supported because one quad-rank LRDIMM
provides the same electrical load on a memory bus as a single-rank RDIMM).

The maximum quantity of DIMMs that can be installed in server depends on number of CPUs, DIMM
type, rank, and operating voltage as shown in the "Maximum quantity" row in the following table.

All DIMMs in all CPU memory channels operate at the same speed, which is determined as the
lowest value of:

The memory speed supported by the specific CPU.

The lowest of maximum operating speeds for the selected memory configuration that depends on
rated speed, operating voltage, and quantity of DIMMs per channel, as shown under "Maximum
operating speed" section in the following table.
The following table (Parts 1, 2, and 3) shows the characteristics of the supported DIMMs. Tables cells
highlighted with a gray background indicate when the combination of DIMM voltage and the number of
DIMMs per channel still allows the DIMMs to operate at a rated speed.


ECC
Chipkill (for x4-based memory DIMMs)
Memory mirroring
Memory rank sparing
If memory mirroring is used, then DIMMs must be installed in pairs (a minimum of one pair per each
CPU), and both DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type and size.
If memory rank sparing is used, then a minimum of one quad-rank DIMM or two single-rank or dual-rank
DIMMs must be installed per populated channel (the DIMMs do not need being identical). In rank sparing
mode, one rank of a DIMM in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory. The size of a rank
varies depending on the DIMMs installed.

I/O expansion options
The server supports two PCI slots with different riser cards installed into two riser sockets on the system
planar (one riser socket supports the installation of one riser card). The slot form factors are as follows:


Slot 1: PCIe x16; low profile, half-length
Slot 2: PCIe x16, PCIe x8, or PCI-X; full-height, half-length (PCIe x16 slot requires second processor
to be installed)
Riser 1 supplies slot 1, and riser 2 supplies slot 2. All standard models except for model DDx have two
riser cards installed that provide one PCIe x16 Gen 3 slot and one PCIe x8 Gen 3 slot (features A1HJ and
A1HK). Model DDx has two PCIe x16 slots (A1HJ and A1HL)
You can replace the second riser card with one of the following (or configure one of these riser cards
instead of the second riser card using special bid or CTO), provided a second processor is also installed:



A riser with one PCIe x16 Gen 3 slot (69Y5671, feature A1HL)
A riser with one PCIe x8 Gen 3 slot (69Y5670, feature A1HK

Systems management
The server contains IBM Integrated Management Module II (IMM2), which provides advanced
service-processor control, monitoring, and an alerting function. If an environmental condition exceeds a
threshold or if a system component fails, the IMM lights LEDs to help you diagnose the problem, records
the error in the event log, and alerts you to the problem. Optionally, the IMM also provides a virtual
presence capability for remote server management capabilities.
The IMM provides remote server management through industry-standard interfaces:




Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) Version 2.0
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Version 3
Common Information Model (CIM)
Web browser
The optional IBM Integrated Management Module Advanced Upgrade is required to enable the remote
presence and blue-screen capture features. The remote presence feature provides the following
functions:




Remotely viewing video with graphics resolutions up to 1600x1200 at 75 Hz with up to 23 bits per
pixel, regardless of the system state
Remotely accessing the server using the keyboard and mouse from a remote client
Mapping the CD or DVD drive, diskette drive, and USB flash drive on a remote client, and mapping
ISO and diskette image files as virtual drives that are available for use by the server
Uploading a diskette image to the IMM memory and mapping it to the server as a virtual drive
The blue-screen capture feature captures the video display contents before the IMM restarts the server
when the IMM detects an operating system hang condition. A system administrator can use the
blue-screen capture to assist in determining the cause of the hang condition. The following table lists the
remote management option.

IBM Global Financing
IBM Global Financing can help you obtain the IT solution you need while preserving funding for other
strategic investments and optimizing cash flow. Our Fair Market Value (FMV) lease helps ensure that you
have the latest IBM technology and with our mid-lease upgrade capability, you can increase the capacity
of the system with little to no change in monthly payments. At the end of the lease, take advantage of our
flexible end-of-lease options to fit your changing business needs. IBM Global Financing has the breadth
and depth of offerings, longevity, proven success and global reach to help you develop a robust financing
and asset management strategy that provides you the opportunity to leverage new technologies and turn
your ambitious vision into a tangible solution.
Here are some other reasons why working with us makes solid financial sense:

Expand your purchasing power—Affordable monthly payments allow you to change the technology
acquisition discussion from “what can I afford right now” to “what solution is really right for my
business.” IBM Global Financing allows you to expand your purchase power to get you the right
solution.

Accelerate your project’s cash flow break-even point—Acquire your IBM technology today and begin to
realize its benefits now. An FMV lease can help you get the solution you need now, with low monthly
payments that better align upfront costs with the anticipated return on investment from the
technology.

Easy to acquire with affordable rates—We offer one-stop shopping for a total IT solution, so you can
acquire IBM hardware, software, services and the financing you need—from one IT provider.
Plus, we provide simple, easy-to-understand contracts and quick approvals. As the world’s largest IT
financing provider, with an asset base of US$35.8 billion and over 125,000 customers, IBM Global
Financing offers highly competitive rates that promote low total cost of ownership and low monthly
payments.

subsidiaries and divisions worldwide to qualified commercial and government clients. Rates and
availability subject to client’s credit rating, financing terms, offering type, equipment and product type and
options, and may vary by country. Non-hardware items must be one-time, non-recurring charges and are
