Key features
This section describes the key features of the compute node.
Scalability and performance
The x440 offers the following features to boost performance, improve scalability, and reduce costs:
The Intel Xeon processor E5-4600 v2 product family improves productivity by offering superior system
performance with 12-core processors and up to 3.3 GHz core speeds, up to 30 MB of L3 cache, and up
to two 8 GTps QPI interconnect links.
Up to four processors, 48 cores, and 96 threads maximize the concurrent execution of multithreaded
applications.
Intelligent and adaptive system performance with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 allows processor
cores to run at maximum speeds during peak workloads by temporarily going beyond processor thermal
design power (TDP).
Intel Hyper-Threading Technology boosts performance for multithreaded applications by enabling
simultaneous multithreading within each processor core, up to two threads per core.
Intel Virtualization Technology integrates hardware-level virtualization hooks that allow operating system
vendors to better use the hardware for virtualization workloads.
Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) improve floating-point performance for compute-intensive
technical and scientific applications compared to Intel Xeon 5600 series processors.
Up to 48 DDR3 ECC memory RDIMMs provide speeds up to 1600 MHz and a memory capacity of up to
768 GB. Load-reduced DIMMs (LRDIMMs) are supported with a maximum capacity of 1.5 TB of memory.
The use of solid-state drives (SSDs) instead of or along with traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) can
significantly improve I/O performance. An SSD can support up to 100 times more I/O operations per
second (IOPS) than a typical HDD.
Up to 64 virtual I/O ports per compute node with optional 10 Gb Ethernet ports, which offer the choice of
Ethernet, iSCSI, or FCoE connectivity.
The x440 offers PCI Express 3.0 I/O expansion capabilities that improve the theoretical maximum
bandwidth by 60% (8 GTps per link), compared with the previous generation of PCI Express 2.0.
With Intel Integrated I/O Technology, the PCI Express 3.0 controller is integrated into the Intel Xeon
processor E5 family. This configuration reduces I/O latency and increases overall system performance.
Support for high-bandwidth I/O adapters, up to four in each x440 Compute Node. Support for 40 Gb
Ethernet, 10 Gb Ethernet, 16 Gb Fibre Channel, and FDR InfiniBand.
Availability and serviceability
The x440 provides the following features to simplify serviceability and increase system uptime:
Chipkill, memory mirroring, and memory rank sparing for redundancy if there is a non-correctable
memory failure.
Tool-less cover removal provides easy access to upgrades and serviceable parts, such as processor,
memory, and adapter cards.
Hot-swap drives that support integrated RAID 1 redundancy for data protection and greater system
uptime.
A light path diagnostics panel and individual light path LEDs to quickly lead the technician to failed (or
failing) components. This panel simplifies servicing, speeds up problem resolution, and helps improve
system availability.
Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA), which detects when system components (such as processors, memory,
and HDDs) operate outside of standard thresholds and generates proactive alerts in advance of possible
failure, which increases uptime.
SSDs that offer better reliability than traditional mechanical HDDs for greater uptime.
Built-in Integrated Management Module II (IMM2) continuously monitors system parameters, triggers
alerts, and performs recovering actions in case of failures to minimize downtime.

service upgrades are available.
Manageability and security
The following powerful systems management features simplify local and remote management of the x440:
An IMM2 to monitor server availability and perform remote management.
An integrated industry-standard Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) enables improved setup,
configuration, and updates, and simplifies error handling.
Integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) V1.2 support enables advanced cryptographic functionality,
such as digital signatures and remote attestation.
Industry-standard AES NI support for faster and stronger encryption.
Integrates with the IBM Flex System Manager for proactive systems management. It offers
comprehensive systems management for the entire Flex System platform, which increases uptime,
reduces costs, and improves productivity through advanced server management capabilities.
Fabric Manager simplifies the deployment of infrastructure connections by managing network and
storage address assignments.
Intel Execute Disable Bit functionality can prevent certain classes of malicious buffer overflow attacks
when combined with a supporting operating system.
Intel Trusted Execution Technology provides enhanced security through hardware-based resistance to
malicious software attacks, which allows an application to run in its own isolated space that is protected
from all other software that is running on a system.
Energy efficiency
The x440 offers the following energy-efficiency features to save energy, reduce operational costs, increase
energy availability, and contribute to a green environment:
Component-sharing design of the Flex System chassis provides ultimate power and cooling savings.
The Intel Xeon processor E5-4600 v2 product family offers better performance over the previous
generation while fitting into the same TDP limits.
Intel Intelligent Power Capability powers individual processor elements on and off as needed, to reduce
power draw.
Low-voltage Intel Xeon processors draw less energy to satisfy demands of power and thermally
constrained data centers and telecommunication environments.
Low-voltage 1.35 V DDR3 memory RDIMMs use 15% less energy than 1.5 V DDR3 RDIMMs.
SSDs use approximately 80% less power than traditional spinning 2.5-inch HDDs.
The x440 uses hexagonal ventilation holes, which is a part of Calibrated Vectored Cooling technology.
Hexagonal holes can be grouped more densely than round holes, which provides more efficient airflow
through the system.

The following rules apply when the memory configuration is selected:
The server supports RDIMMs and LRDIMMs; UDIMMs are not supported
Mixing different types of memory (for example, RDIMMs and LRDIMMs) is not supported.
Mixing 1.5 V and 1.35 V DIMMs in the same server is supported; in such a case, all DIMMs operate at 1.5
V.
The maximum number of ranks 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 the server depends on the number of processors
that are installed. The following table shows the maximum when all four processors are installed. When
two processors are installed, the maximum quantity that is supported is a half of the quantity that is
shown.
All DIMMs in the server operate at the same speed, which is determined as the lowest value of the
following factors:
The memory speed that is supported by the specific processor.
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 table.
The following table shows the maximum memory speeds that are achievable based on the installed DIMMs and
the number of DIMMs per channel. The following table also shows the maximum memory capacity at any speed
that is supported by the DIMM and the maximum memory capacity at the rated DIMM speed.
Cells that are highlighted with a grey background in the following table indicate when the specific combination
of DIMM voltage and number of DIMMs per channel still allows the DIMMs to operate at the rated speed.

Chipkill (for x4-based memory DIMMs only; look for "x4" in the DIMM description)
Memory mirroring
Memory rank sparing
If memory mirroring is used, DIMMs must be installed in pairs (minimum of one pair per processor), and both
DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type and size.
If memory rank sparing is used, a minimum of one quad-rank DIMM or two single-rank or dual-rank DIMMs must
be installed per populated channel. 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 installed DIMMs.
Internal storage
The x440 server has two 2.5-inch hot-swap drive bays that are accessible from the front of the blade server (see
Figure 2). These bays are connected to the integrated 4-port LSI SAS2004 6 Gbps SAS/SATA RAID-on-Chip
(ROC) controller.
The integrated LSI SAS2004 ROC has the following features:
Four-port controller with 6 Gbps throughput per port
PCIe x4 Gen 2 host interface
Two SAS ports that are routed internally to the two hot-swap drive bays
Supports RAID levels 0 (Integrated Striping), 1 (Integrated Mirroring), 10 (Integrated Mirroring and
Striping), and 1E (Integrated Mirroring Enhanced)
The x440 also supports an additional four 1.8-inch drives internally to the server with the addition of the
ServeRAID M5115 controller and more SSD tray hardware, as described in the next section.

when combined with a ServeRAID M5115 SAS/SATA controller (90Y4390). The M5115 attaches to the I/O
adapter 1 connector. The M5115 cannot be installed if an adapter is already installed in I/O adapter slot 1.
The ServeRAID M5115 supports the following combinations of 2.5-inch drives and 1.8-inch SSDs:
Up to two 2.5-inch drives only
Up to two 2.5-inch drives and up to four 1.8-inch SSDs
The ServeRAID M5115 SAS/SATA Controller (90Y4390) provides an advanced RAID controller that supports
RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 50. It includes 1 GB of cache, which can be backed up to flash memory when it is attached to
the supercapacitor that is included with the optional ServeRAID M5100 Series Enablement Kit (46C9030).

** Ensure the IMM2 firmware of the x440 is at least level 40A for full compatibility
The following ServeRAID M5115 hardware kits are available:
ServeRAID M5100 Series Enablement Kit for Flex System x440 (46C9030) enables support for up to two
2.5-inch HDDs or SSDs in the hot-swap bays in the front of the server. It includes a CacheVault unit,
which enables MegaRAID CacheVault flash cache protection. This enablement kit replaces the two
standard 1-bay backplanes (which are attached through the planar to an onboard controller) with new 1bay backplanes that attach to an included flex cable to the M5115 controller. It also includes an air baffle,
which also serves as an attachment for the CacheVault unit.
MegaRAID CacheVault flash cache protection uses NAND flash memory that is powered by a
supercapacitor to protect data stored in the controller cache. This module eliminates the need for a
lithium-ion battery that is commonly used to protect DRAM cache memory on PCI RAID controllers. To
avoid the possibility of data loss or corruption during a power or server failure, CacheVault technology
transfers the contents of the DRAM cache to NAND flash memory by using power from the
supercapacitor. After the power is restored to the RAID controller, the saved data is transferred from the
NAND flash memory back to the DRAM cache, which can then be flushed to disk.

EN4172 2-port 10Gb Ethernet Adapter
The Flex System EN4172 2-port 10Gb Ethernet Adapter is a dual-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet network adapter and
is standard on some models. The adapter supports virtual network interface controller (vNIC) capability that
helps clients reduce cost and complexity. The EN4172 2-port 10Gb Ethernet Adapter is based on the QLogic
BCM57840 controller.
The adapter includes the following features:
One Broadcom BCM57840 ASIC
Connection to either 1 Gb or 10 Gb data center infrastructure (1 Gb and 10 Gb auto-negotiation).
PCI Express 2.0 x8 host interface
Full line-rate performance
Supported by Flex System Manager (Tier 2 support only; no alerting)
Supported by Fabric Manager
Ethernet frame: 1500 byte or 9600 byte (jumbo frame)
Virtual LAN (VLAN) support with VLAN tagging
vNIC Switch Independent (vNIC2) Mode support - four vNIC/NPAR Ethernet devices per 10Gb physical
port
TCP Offload Engine (TOE) support
I/O expansion options
The x440 has four I/O expansion connectors for attaching I/O adapter cards, as shown in the following figure.
There is a fifth expansion connector (under I/O adapter 4) that is designed for future expansion options. The I/O
expansion connector is a high-density 216-pin PCIe connector. Installing I/O adapters allows the server to
connect with switch modules in the Flex System Enterprise Chassis. Each slot has a PCI Express 3.0 x16 host
interface and all slots support the same form-factor adapters.
Note: A second processor must be installed to use I/O adapter slots 3 and 4 in the x440 compute node because
the PCIe lanes that are used to drive I/O slots 3 and 4 are routed to processors 2 and 4.
Figure 6 shows the location of the I/O expansion connectors.
Flex System x440 Compute Node (7167)
