HP ProLiant BL620c Generation 7 (G7) Server Blade
Carrier Grade Supplement
Overview
the three mezzanine expansion slots yield an outstanding 96Gb of I/O bandwidth.
The BL620c G7 is also perfect for 2P applications requiring performance and features greater than typical dual processor (DP)
Intel Xeon 5000 offerings. The scalability of the BL620c G7 offers up to 4x memory capacity and increased memory performance
along with an extensive list of memory RAS features, 40x embedded Ethernet bandwidth, and 50% more on-board I/O slots than
other 2P Intel Xeon 5500 and 5600 Series servers available today.
Traditional multi-processor (MP) class server blades are typically unbalanced providing processor performance and density at the
expense of proportional memory capacity and I/O bandwidth. As such, these unbalanced servers fail when faced with larger
databases and higher-density virtualization applications. Today, you have a better alternative. By designing a balanced
architecture, the BL620c G7 is a very unique 2P MP blade offering that ensures that all subsystems can be used effectively under a
broad range of enterprise applications and workloads. The 2P BL620c G7 along with the 4P BL680c G7 together provide a
complete Intel Xeon 7500 portfolio that is a new class of scale-up HP ProLiant servers that deliver the reliability and performance
you need to handle demanding workloads with confidence- while simplifying management and driving down operating costs.
This document covers the NEBS Level 3 certified BL620 G7. These blades, with the associated c7000 enclosure, and interconnects,
etc. which have passed the NEBS Level 3 (GR-63 and GR-1089) and ETSI EN 300 386-2 certifications. Testing and certification is
limited to -48VDC powered enclosures. For more information on HP ProLiant Server Blades and HP BladeSystem c-Class

Data Bus ECC protection for automatic correction from a single data bit error and detection of
double data error bits.
Advanced ECC / Chip Spare / SDDC provides continued memory operation in the event of a
single memory device failure and allows removal of a single DRAM from the memory map if it
exhibits a failure and recovers its data into a new device.
o Supports for both x4 and x8 Intel SDDC.
Patrol Scrubbing proactively searches the system memory, repairing correctable errors.
Demand Scrubbing writes corrected data back to the memory once a correctable error is
detected on a read transaction.
DIMM Address/Control Bus Parity Protection provides a means to detect and protect
command and address errors.
Memory Failover uses a mirrored DIMM once a failed DIMM in a mirrored set is detected.
Memory Mirroring provides a copy of memory stored with dynamic failover in case of failure
within socket (intra-socket) memory mirroring.
o The system will operate in non-hemisphere mode when mirroring is enabled.
Rank Sparring (On Line Spare) provides dynamic failover to a spare DIMM pair or spare rank
pair behind the same memory controller. Cannot be enabled concurrently with memory
mirroring.
NOTE: HP offers the rank sparing rather than DIMM sparing as rank sparing uses less spare
memory resulting in less overhead.
Memory On-lining allows already inserted memory devices added to the available system
resources without downtime with OS support assistance.
Memory Error Injection adds bit errors into memory arrays for memory error troubleshooting.
Failed DIMM Isolation identifies a specific failing DIMM channel pair thereby enabling the user
to replace only the failed DIMM pair. Identifies a single DIMM for correctable errors and DIMM
pair for uncorrectable errors.
Virtualization


Intel VT-x (FlexMigration, FlexPriority, and Extended Page Tables) provides:
o Platform control between the VMM and guest OSs for faster, more reliable and
secure transfers.
o VM migration features that enhance flexibility for failover, load balancing, disaster
recovery, and maintenance.
Intel VT-d (Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O) enables the VMM to assign specific
I/O devices to specific guest OSs improving security and availability.

Cache parity/ECC protects cache data from accidental data corruption due to particle hits.
Machine Check Architecture (MCA) detects and captures hardware errors such as system bus,
ECC, parity, cache, other.
Enhanced MCA handling & error logging builds upon the original Machine Check Architecture
to: offers more "banks" and increased "resolution" for reporting errors that cause MCA events
and 2) sets check flags for the OS to poll.
External Bus Error Recovery (ECC) enables automatic correction from a single data bit error
and detection of double data error bits on the memory data bus.
De-allocate Processor on Reboot detects faulty processors during system initialization, deallocates them, and reports the condition.
Corrupt Data Containment tags faulty data before it is consumed (often called data poisoning)
to limit the impact to the currently running program and to greatly reduce the need to reset
the system.
On-Die Error Protection protects registers from particle hits.

event of a forwarded clock failure.
QPI Self-Healing enables a QPI link to map a failed lane and downshift from full to ½ width (or
½ width to ¼ width) QPI link if there are errors on the link.
QPI Cycle Redundancy Checking (CRC) automatically detects data errors using a checksum of
either 8 bits or 16 bits.
QPI Poisoning tags an erroneous packet with a "poisoned bit" on the QPI fabric.
QPI Lane Failover identifies a faulty lane within data paths removing them from operation
reducing command/address errors.

Platform Module
The BL620c G7 server includes a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) connector for an optional TPM 1.2
upgrade. The TPM 1.2 option is a microcontroller chip that can securely store artifacts used to
authenticate the server platform. These artifacts can include passwords, certificates and encryption
keys. Windows® BitLocker™ Drive Encryption (BitLocker) is a data protection feature available in
Windows Server® 2008. BitLocker leverages the enhanced security capabilities of TPM version 1.2. The
TPM works with BitLocker to help protect user data and to ensure that a server operating Windows
Server 2008 has not been tampered with while the system was offline.
NOTE: For more information about TPM, including a white paper, go to: http://www.hp.com/go/TPM.
NOTE: ProLiant OS pre-installed units will come with the partition required for TPM deployment.
NOTE: The TPM key is unique to every TPM deployed server and must be retained. Misplacing or losing
the key could result in data loss.

Memory
Memory Subsystem Architecture
Xeon EX memory architecture is designed to take advantage of multiple stages of memory interleaving to reduce latency and
increase bandwidth.
Each Intel Xeon 6500 and 7500 Series processor socket contains two Memory Controllers. Each Memory controller has two Intel
Scalable Memory Interface (SMI) buses operating in lockstep. Each SMI in turn bus connects to a memory buffer. The purpose of
the buffer is to convert SMI to DDR3. Each memory buffer has two DDR3 channels and can support up to four DIMMs for a total of
sixteen DIMMs per processor socket (32 DIMMs per server).
All DIMMs will operate at the highest possible speed for a given processor. Memory speed is not affected by number of DIMMs or
ranks. However, memory speed is a function of the processors QPI bus speed per the following:



Processors with a QPI speed of 6.40GT will operate memory at 1066MHz
Processors with a QPI speed of 5.86GT will operate memory at 978MHz
Processors with a QPI speed of 4.80GT will operate memory at 800MHz
DDR3 Memory Population Guidelines
An overview of the DIMM installation guidelines are summarized below: For detailed memory configuration rules and guidelines,
please see the BL620c G7 user guide at www/hp.com and the Online DDR3 Memory Configuration Tool at
www.hp.com/go/ddr3memory-configurator.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
All memory must be DDR3-1066 or DDR3-1033 RDIMMs per the options listed in this document.
Each processor socket has 16 DIMM sockets. DIMM sockets are available to the system when a processors socket is
populated with a processor.
The minimum allowable configuration is two DIMMs per processor.
DIMMs must be installed in pairs with identical characteristics. For configuration simplicity HP recommends using identical
part numbered DIMMs throughout when possible.
DIMM pairs MUST be populated in sequence by letter designation. Install DIMM pair A first followed by DIMM pair B, pair C,
etc.
Maximum performance is achieved by balancing DIMM pairs.
Advanced memory protection (AMP) modes Online Sparing and Memory Mirroring have further requirements beyond
these listed here. Please refer to the user guide for additional memory configuration requirements
Pre-configured Model Standard Memory
8GB (2 x 4GB) of dual-rank DDR3-1066 RDIMMs
Pre-configured Model Standard Memory Plus Optional Memory
Up to 464GB of memory is available with the installation of optional DDR3 RDIMM memory expansion kits.
Pre-configured Model Standard Memory Replaced with Optional Memory
Up to 512MB of memory is available with the removal of standard memory and the installation of optional DDR3 RDIMM memory
expansion kits.

Hard Drives
NOTE: The components of a storage subsystem (e.g. the drive, the HBA/controller, firmware, and the server backplane) should
operate at the same data transfer rate or the system bandwidth will be negotiated down to an acceptable level for all
components.
NOTE: Different hard drives types may be mixed, but logical drive partitioning (i.e. RAID capability) is not supported.
NOTE: Hard drives have either a one year or three year warranty; refer to the specific hard drive QuickSpecs for details.
