12Ultimate System RAS and Management Capability Hundreds of thousands of SGI Rackable® servers in production powering the world’s largest internet and technical computing environmentsRobust reliability and availability features at both the application architecture level and at the server levelWorld class professional consulting, installation and support services.SGI customers have access to 500 Services Professionals in 50 Countries and to same Day Support in 150 Major Metro Areas in over 20 CountriesRackable servers are field proven, with hundreds of thousands in production powering the world’s largest Internet and technical computing environments. Reliability and availability is typically either implemented at the application architecture level (allowing individual servers to fail without consequence) or by relying on redundant power and cooling options at the server hardware level. Rackable servers also optimize for serviceability. Half-depth servers mount like blades with no rack rails required and front-facing ports. Standard-depth servers include multi-node models like the C2112 which support swapping individual nodes to speed service. And when it comes to manageability, all Rackable models support IPMI remote management for lights-off access and control. SGI Management Center unifies these capabilities under an easy-to-use, centralized management view.
13High DensityBoth Rackable® half-depth and standard-depth servers can be deployed at leading core densities:C1001 half-depth server: 2,944 cores/46U cabinet in 92 servers mounted back to backC2112 standard-depth server: 2,688 cores/42U cabinet in 21 quad- node servers (84 nodes)Rackable servers also deliver a high local storage density, a central requirement for many applicationsPractical density is key as most data centers are power limited. A key SGI strength is designing at the cabinet level, optimizing power and thermals for the real life data center environmentRackable servers are known for their superior density. Half-depth server mount back to back for up to 92 servers or 2,208 cores in a 46U cabinet. Standard-depth models include quad-node 2U models that yield 84 nodes and 2,016 cores in a standard 42U cabinet. Of course those are solutions that optimize for CPU core density. Equally important are Rackable server models that optimize for local storage density or a combination of core and storage density. What it comes down to is that practical density is the key metric. Not only the right mix of compute and storage but that which fits inside the typically limited power budget available in a real-life data center. Because SGI designs at the cabinet level, all Rackable servers feature optimum power and thermal characteristics that allow for a superior practical density.Half-depth density is based upon AMD Magny-Cours at 12 cores/socket. So 92 servers x 2S per server x 12 cores = 2,208 cores.Standard-depth density is based upon 4 nodes in a 2U. So a 42U cabinet has 21 x 4 = 84 nodes; with Magny-Cours 84 x 2 x 12 = 2,016 cores.
14Eco-Logical™ Benefits SGI servers can cut W of power vs. competitive designsPower savings delivered byOptimizing component choicesCPU, memory, hard drivesDelivering superior thermal designs that cut cooling fan powerMaximizing AC and DC power supply efficiency and right-sizing power supplies to server configurationsSGI is industry leading in bringing high-efficiency, Eco-Logical solutions to market. In many cases, this means a decrease of W of power per server relative to competitive designs. 10W may not sound like much but even 10W of savings means roughly $100 of power cost over a three year life of a server, factoring in typical commercial power costs and data center overhead.The Rackable line leverages best-of-breed component level choices, emphasizing high-efficiency parts throughout. For many customers, this means using 50-60W CPUs instead of W ones, leveraging an architecture that allows low-wattage memory (4W instead of 16W per stick), and designing in hard drives at 6-8W per drive instead of 10-18W.Rackable half-depth servers in particular benefit from a superior thermal design that substantially cuts cooling fan power draw, further optimizing server power consumption. Finally, SGI continues to invest in its AC and DC power supply technology to ensure that they are best in class, with efficiencies in the low to mid 90’s in real life use, not just in power efficiency benchmarking. And right-sizing the supplies ensures that each server is operating at peak efficiency for that specific server configuration.CPU: 80-95W -> 50-60WMemory: 16W -> 4WHard drive: 10-18W -> 6-8W

They are ideal for largely homogeneous deployments implemented at the cabinet or row level inside the data center. For superior density, configurability, etc. in a standard hot/cold aisle environment, flow-through designs can be implemented—this has the advantage of the superior half-depth design (with lots of SGI added-value). In a hot-aisle containment design Rackable half-depth servers represent an ideal path to implementing hot aisle containment – for example, it is easy to pipe the hot air out of the top of the cabinet directly into the data center’s HVAC return system, eliminating issues of hot air contaminating cold aisles and the associated data center thermal challenges. Thermals tend to be superior overall with half-depth servers because air only needs to be pulled the 15.5” inch length of the chassis. As a result, most Rackable half-depth servers only require 10-15W of cooling fan power to cool, even with the highest wattage processors available. Finally, half-depth servers have front-facing ports and a rail-less design which significantly improve serviceability over traditional rail-mounted servers.SGI also offers standard-depth server models in the Rackable line. These are great for heterogeneous deployments. Not only are these the ideal head nodes or management nodes for SGI ICE and SGI UV systems, but standard-depth Rackable servers are also the best fit for combining with SGI InfiniteStorage systems so that all cabling is at the rear and cooled in an industry standard hot-aisle/cold-aisle approach. Approaching the density of the half-depth designs, multi-node configurations such as the C2112 server are available that share power and cooling infrastructure without compromising performance.

The C2108 offers solid I/O expansion capability, up to eight 3.5” hot-swap drives and redundant power supplies. This makes it a good choice for HPC cluster head nodes in addition to general purpose server applications. The C2112 is a system containing four hot-swap nodes that all share power and cooling infrastructure. It is a popular compute node choice when implementing HPC clusters.

This creates a plenum, allowing the hot air to rise either into a air conditioning return in the ceiling above the row or even into an attached duct that pipes the hot air directly out of the data center. This eliminates hot aisle thermal challenges and makes cooling much more efficient.Half-depth servers “blind mate” into the center of the rack like blades for ease of serviceability. Front-facing I/O and cabling reduces maintenance time by up to 75% while providing remote management capabilities that allow administrators to never leave their office except to service actual hardware failures.ServiceabilityI/O in front and clean cabling reduces maintenance time by up to 75%IPMI remote management

A variety of sizes are available in both 24” and 26” rack widths. Both feature cable troughs for exceptionally clean cabling and serviceability. As mentioned previously, one of the big advantages of the Rackable line is the ability of cabinets to ship fully integrated with servers, networking and storage. This allows servers to be up and running extraordinarily quickly, assuming the data center has been prepared in advance to receive them.
23Rackable® Half-Depth Rack-level DC Power Delivery AC-to-DC rectification within the rack for superior combination of reliability and efficiencyAC power supplies replaced with 96.5% efficient DC power supply with 2 million hours MTBFRectifiers convert AC input to DC power for 10%-30% power savingsNow available in 1U modelDC distribution bars inside cabinet deliver N+M redundant DC power to individual serversEasily deployed in any existing AC data center (no infrastructure upgrades needed)Allows rack-level UPS at significant cost savings over individual chassis RPSWhile Rackable servers are available with high efficiency AC power supplies, rack-level AC-DC conversion is a compelling choice for many customers. By placing N+M redundant rectifiers at the top of the cabinet, incoming AC power to the cabinet is converted to -48V DC power at high efficiency and distributed to the servers in the rack. In a DC cabinet, Rackable half-depth servers inside the cabinet use an extremely reliable 96.5% efficient DC power supply. The end result is a reliability level equivalent to putting a redundant power supply inside every server with the density and efficiency associated with single supplies. Because the cabinet is still an AC based one from the data center perspective, this in-rack solution is delivered without the need for expensive DC data center infrastructure.

When mounted back to back, the C1001 ends up effectively being a 1/2U and the C2002 a 1U from a density perspective. The C1001 goes after the highest possible blade-level density of up to 2,208 cores in a 46U cabinet, each with one hot-swap 3.5” or a pair of 2.5” hard drives, one expansion slot and choice of AC or DC power supply. The C2005 is often the practical density champion, delivering a rich feature set unheard of in competitive 1U servers at the same density point – up to 5 x 3.5” or 10 x 2.5” hot-swap drives and up to five expansion slots. Redundant AC power is even available with front-facing, hot-swap power supply modules. A wide variety of compatible Intel and AMD server boards make these servers leading choices in the Rackable line.
