Notes
:

Perf ormance is in Internal Throughput Rate (ITR) ratio based on measurements and projections using standard IBM benchmarks in

a
controlled env ironment. The actual throughput that any user will
experience will v ary depending upon considerations such as the amount of multiprogramming in the user's job stream, the I/O c
onf
iguration, the storage conf iguration, and the workload processed.
Theref ore, no assurance can be giv en that an indiv idual user will achiev e throughput improv ements equiv alent to the perf orma
nce

ratios stated here.

zEnterprise™


System z

remains the enterprise consolidation system with best
economics for clients, delivering the best availability, security, scale and
management required for enterprise critical work. zEnterprise with zBX
is a proof point for hybrid universal management capabilities of IBM.


Enterprise Power

(High End and 770)

continues to be the leading
system for UNIX consolidati on with 60% unit share; delivers leadership
virtualization, performance, security and resiliency needed by most
enterprise clients.


Power Express

(4s and 2s)

provides highly customizable systems for
traditional UNIX and IBM i applications in Midmarket or distributed
enterprise clients.


Power Blades

will transition to PureFlex System Power Compute
Nodes.


System x Blades

should be prioritized if the customer focuses on
existing investment protection.


eX5 High End

should be prioritized for
scale
-
up and

maximum x86 memory requirements.


PureFlex System

provides unified management with enterprise storage
and choice of compute nodes (Power and x86). Pureflex System can be
connected to IBM general purpose systems and the environments
managed through the Tivoli® suite.


PureApplication System

provides a pre
-
integrated, pre
-
optimized
hardware and software stack with a single point of management . It
should be the first choice to compete with Oracle

Exalogic offering.

Flash Express is intended to improve System z availability


Slash latency delays from paging


Flash Memory is much faster than spinning disk


Flash Memory is much slower than main memory


Flash Memory takes less power than either


Make your start of day processing fast


Designed to eliminate delays from SVC Dump processing


zEC12 offers optional Flash Express memory cards


Supported in PCIe I/O drawer with other PCIe I/O cards


Installed in pairs for availability


No HCD/IOCP definitions required


Assign Flash Memory to partitions like main memory


Assignment is by memory amount, not by feature


Each partition’s Flash Memory is isolated like main memory


Dynamically increase the partition maximum amount of Flash


Dynamically configure Flash Memory into and out of the partition

What Is Flash Express?


Also referred to as Storage Class Memory (SCM)


Flash Express is internal storage implemented via NAND Flash SSDs (Solid State
Drives) mounted in PCIe Flash Express feature cards


Plugs into PCIe I/O drawers in pairs


Data security provided on the feature cards


A pair provides 1.6 TB of storage


A maximum of 4 pairs are supported in a system


Internal Flash is accessed using the new System z architected EADM (Extended
Asynchronous Data Mover) Facility


An extension of the ADM architecture used in the past with expanded storage


Access is initiated with a Start Subchannel instruction


Subchannels used were previously reserved


Definition in IOCDS is not required


The main application of internal Flash in zEC12 is paging store for z/OS



Where it provides advantages in resiliency and speed




With pageable large pages being introduced in tandem for exceptional performance

The Model
Capacity

Identifier


The Model Capacity Identifier (MCI) is the value used by Independent
Software Vendors (ISVs) to set the price for software billing


It is used to indicate the number of active CPs rather than total physical
PUs delivered (purchased)


The 4/5/6/7xx MCI along with the real hardware model number and the
MSU value is returned when the STSI instruction is executed

Note: For no CPs, the capacity setting is now 400. z196 was 700
.

Subcapacity CPs, up to 20, may be ordered on ANY zEC12 model.

If 21 or more CPs are ordered all must be full 7xx capacity


All CPs on a zEC12 CPC must be the same capacity


All specialty engines run at full capacity. The one for

one entitlement to purchase one zAAP and one zIIP for

each CP purchased is the same for CPs of any capacity.


Only 20 CPs can have granular capacity but

other PU cores may be characterized

as full capacity specialty engines


For no CPs, the capacity

setting is 400

Performance Improvements


Elapsed time improvements when dynamically altering the size of a cache structure


DB2 conditional write to a group buffer pool (GBP) cache which allows selected entries be written
around the cache to disk to reduce overhead


Throughput enhancements for parallel cache castout processing


Storage class and castout class contention avoidance by breaking up individual storage class and
castout class queues to reduce storage class and castout class latch contention


Coupling link characteristics reporting to z/OS


Identifies underlying InfiniBand hardware characteristics for CIB CHPIDs to help with

Sysplex monitoring and tuning


Enables RMF Monitor III to report additional information


InfiniBand Link type and protocol: 12x IFB, 12x IFB3 and 1x IFB


CHPID mapping to physical links


HCA IDs and port numbers


Link fiber optic distance


Fully functional or degraded status


Resiliency Improvements


Enhanced capabilities to non
-
disruptively capture and collect extended diagnostic structure data
from Coupling Facility structures that have encountered an error.


Verification of local cache controls for a Coupling Facility cache structure connector


Structure and CF Storage Sizing with CFCC level 18


May increase storage requirements when moving from CF Level 17 (or below) to CF Level 18
