Overview

The Power System S812 server brings robust and solid business transaction processing with proven infrastructure for AIX and IBM i operating system environments. The S812 is a 1-socket, 2U system designed to meet compute demands of larger deployments, for example, in retail space and as an entry point for noncompute-intense workloads that require high reliability and stability.

This 1-socket system can be ordered with one core for IBM i (up to 25 users) and up to four cores for AIX. The S812 provides the benefits of great performance per core and per socket, utilizing the POWER8 processor. It also provides resilient I/O capabilities, internal storage, and hot-plug PCI capabilities, along with greater reliability, availability, and serviceability.

Other benefits include:

  • A foundation to core workloads in small footprints at a very competitive price point
  • Right fit for small businesses and scale-out deployments
  • Energy efficient and easy to manage by utilizing advanced energy control

The Power System S812 supports one processor socket, offering 1-core with IBM i or 4-core with AIX 3.026 GHz POWER8 configurations in a 19-inch rack-mount, 2U (EIA units) drawer configuration.

The Power S812 server supports a maximum of 64 GB DDR4 memory for IBM i workloads and a maximum of 128 GB DDR4 memory for AIX workloads. Memory features supported are 16 GB and 32 GB and run at speeds of 1600 Mbps.

I/O and system attributes in the system unit include:

  • Six PCIe Gen3 Low Profile (LP) Slots (all hot pluggable)
  • CAPI capable on two PCIe x16 slots (AIX)
  • Twelve or eight 2.5-in. SAS SFF-3 bays for HDD or SSD (all hot pluggable)
    • Eight bays available for IBM i
    • Eight or twelve bays for AIX, depending on backplane
  • Multiple RAID options supported
  • One DVD
  • Two front USB 3.0 and two rear USB 2.0 ports
  • One system port (rear)
  • Service processor
  • 1+1 Redundant hot-swap AC power supplies
  • 19-inch rack-mount 2U configuration
  • AIX 6.1, 7.1, 7.2, or later, operating system support
  • IBM i 7.3 TR2, 7.2 TR6, or later, operating system support with a maximum of 25 IBM i user entitlements
