IBM Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA)


What is Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA)? Component analysis logic that can predict an impending failure based on data from the component Typically notification is within 24 to 48 hours of a potential failure Benefits Less unscheduled downtime Better overall availability of the servers Components can be replaced under warranty prior to a failure

IBM System x3750 M4 Power and Thermal Design


Better Power and Thermal design - As data centers grow, power and cooling costs are becoming a larger piece of the IT budget. According to EPA's report to Congress, data centers will account for nearly 3% of total US electricity consumption in 2011. IBM has always been focused on help clients reduce their energy consumption through greater efficiency and innovation.
Free air cooling support: x3750 M4 models support 5o-40oC Allow customers to save on cooling costs Zone Cooling: Six independent FAN modules support 5 Thermal Zones. Each zone will adjust fan speed based on the components and thermal conditions in that zone. This provides optimal temperature within the server without wasting energy
