S914 Technical Specifications
IBM Power System server
The POWER9 scale-out family is the first set of entry servers that comes completely cloud-enabled out of the box with integrated PowerVM Enterprise capabilities. Additionally, on-chip analytics and algorithms help clients run their workloads at an optimized processor frequency for performance and throughput. Live Partition Mobility capabilities are built in, to cloud-enable your POWER9 infrastructure and help you migrate from previous Power Systems. Every new S914 also has the option of a temporary PowerVM license for your old server to support a seamless move of workloads to POWER9. The new server has built-in security that can help you to be ready for current and future security threats.
The Power S914 server supports one-processor sockets, offering 4-core typical 2.3 to 3.8 GHz (max), or 6-core typical 2.3 to 3.8 GHz (max) or 8-core typical 2.8 to 3.8 GHz (max) POWER9 processor-based configurations in a 19-inch rack-mount, 4U (EIA units) drawer or desk-side configuration. All the cores are active. The server supports a maximum of 16 DDR4 DIMM slots. Memory features supported are 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB and run at speeds of 2133, 2400, and 2666 Mbps, allowing for a maximum system memory of 1024 GB.

12 SFF-3 Bays/RDX Bays.
Optionally, split the above SFF-3 bays and add a second integrated SAS controller without cache.
18 SFF-3 Bays/Dual IOA with Write Cache and External SAS port.
12 SFF-3 Bays/RDX Bay/Dual IOA with Write Cache and External SAS port.
Optionally, attach an EXP12SX/EXP24SX SAS HDD/SSD Expansion Drawer to the dual IOA.
Up to two PCIe3 NVMe carrier cards with two M.2 module slots (with up to four Mainstream 400 GB SSD NVMe M.2 modules)
A quantity of one PCIe3 NVMe carrier card can be ordered only with storage backplane. If a PCIe3 NVMe carrier card is ordered with a storage backplane, then the optional split feature is not supported.
PCIe slots with single processor:
One x16 Gen4 full-height, half-length (CAPI)
One x8 Gen4 full-height, half-length (with x16 connector) (CAPI)
Two x8 Gen3 full-height, half-length (with x16 connectors)
Four x8 Gen3 full-height, half-length (One of these slots is used for the required base LAN adapter.)
