HP Integrity Superdome configuration overview by OS
HP Integrity Superdome hardware
For increased flexibility in configuring the data center, an HP Integrity Superdome has up to four different types of cabinet assemblies:
HP Integrity Superdome 16-processor or 16–mx2 Dual-Processor Module (32-CPU) and 32- processor or 32–mx2 Dual-Processor Module (64-CPU) systems are single-cabinet configurations with one left cabinet. The cabinet contains all of the processors, memory, and core devices of the system. It also houses up to 48 I/O cards or 4 I/O chassis.
The HP Integrity Superdome 64-processor or 64–mx2 Dual-Processor Module (128-CPU) system is a dual-cabinet configuration with one left cabinet and one right cabinet. Together, the two cabinets contain all of the processors, memory, and core devices of the system. The dual-cabinet configuration houses up to 96 I/O cards or 8 I/O chassis.
Up to two optional I/O expansion cabinets may be added if the required number of I/O cards exceeds the number of I/O cards that can be accommodated in a 32-processor or 32–mx2 Dual- Processor Module (64-CPU) configuration or a 64-processor or 64–mx2 Dual-Processor Module (128-CPU) configuration.
The HP Integrity Superdome cabinet
Figure 2 shows the physical layout of an Integrity Superdome 32-processor or 32–mx2 Dual-Processor Module (64-CPU) server cabinet. At the top of the cabinet, hot-swappable main fans are installed after the cabinet arrives at the customer site. Below these fans is a cage for the eight cell boards on which processors and memory DIMMs reside. In a future release of HP-UX 11i, these cell boards will support hot-swap capability, so you can change them without bringing down the system.
