Power Systems with POWER8 Sales Skills V1

Question No: 51

A customer has a fully virtualized scale out Linux environment with 25 x86 servers, each with 16 cores. You are proposing to move all Linux partitions to eight Power S824 servers, each with 24 cores.

What cost reduction should be included in the TCO documentation?

  1. Linux patching

  2. Partition monitoring

  3. Application maintenance

  4. Network infrastructure

Answer: D Explanation:

Hardware and software costs: costs associated with storage and network infrastructure; costs associated with server migrations; and costs associated with hardware and software for high availability and disaster recovery

Which POWER8 feature is available only on E870 and E880 models?

  1. Enterprise Pools

  2. Concurrent firmware updates

  3. Dual HMCs

  4. Hot Swap PCIe adapters

Answer: D

Explanation: Each Power E870 or Power E880 system node provides eight half-length, half-high x16 PCIe Gen3 slots. These PCIe slots can be used for either low profile PCIe adapters or for attaching a PCIe I/O drawer.

A new form factor blind swap cassette (BSC) is used to house the low profile adapters, which go into these slots. All PCIe slots are hot swappable and support concurrent maintenance.
