KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Performance

The Cisco ® MCS 7835-I1 is a robust, highly available server platform designed to support today's unified communications applications. It includes such innovations as variable speed fan support, NetBAY cabling support, and Light Path Diagnostics and Chipkill memory support. The Cisco MCS 7835-I1 occupies only 2RU rack space while providing the features most requested in a high availability server platform. At product introduction, the product will ship with an Intel Xeon 3.4GHz processor and the processor speed will be increased as Intel replaces the 3.4GHz processor and introduces new processors that will be supported by the Cisco MCS 7835-I1 chassis.

High Availability

High availability on the Cisco MCS 7835-I1 is achieved through the following mechanisms:

• Redundant hot-swap 625W power supplies

• Hot-swap SCSI hard drives configured using RAID 1

• Redundant hot-swap fans

Memory

The Cisco MCS 7835-I1 supports up to 16GB of DDR2 memory. The increased processor performance coupled with DDR2 memory allows customers to retrieve and process information quickly and efficiently. DDR memory executes twice the number of operations per cycle than traditional synchronous dynamic RAM (SDRAM) memory, effectively doubling the data exchange rate between memory and processors.

Variable Speed Fan Support

The Cisco MCS 7835-I1 includes variable speed fans to reduce operating noise. Through the use of temperature sensors within the server, the speed of the fans is adjusted to maintain the proper cooling reducing the noise generated by the fans by operating them only when required and at a speed based upon the cooling requirements.

Advanced Connectivity Technology

The Cisco MCS 7835-I1 supports IBM's new NetBAY Advanced Connectivity Technology products that help reduce Keyboard/Video/Mouse (KVM) costs by linking administrators' chain systems together with Category 5 cable. In addition to reducing overall costs, Advanced Connectivity Technology reduces bulk cable clutter, making servers accessible and serviceable in the rack.

Serviceability

Light Path Diagnostics

The Cisco MCS 7835-I1 is equipped with Light Path Diagnostics which provides a central information LED panel (visible without removing the cover) and individual LED lights throughout the system on items like memory dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs), peripheral component interconnect (PCI) slots, power supplies and CPUs. IT can quickly view system status and service personnel can pinpoint the specific failing component, helping reducing downtime and service costs. Availability increases because non-technical personnel can report error conditions without removing the top cover and exposing vital components to further risk. If the system error LED on the front of the server is on, one or more LEDs inside the server or on the power supply will be on. These LEDs will help identify and locate problems with some server components. By following the path of lights, you can quickly identify the type of system error that occurred. The Cisco MCS 7835-I1 is designed so that any LEDs that are illuminated remain illuminated when the server shuts down as long as the AC power source is good and the power supply can provide +5 VDC to the server.
Light Path Diagnostics provide indication of failures for the following conditions:

• One or both power supplies are consuming power higher than maximum rating

• Power Supply 1 failure

• Power Supply 2 failure

• Error on Voltage Regulator Module

• One or both processors failed

• Hardware configuration error occurred

• Memory error

• Non-maskable interrupt occurred

• Error occurred on the system board

• Service processor failure

• Error occurred on adapter in PCI-X slots A, B, or C

• Hard disk error occurred

• Fan failure or slow operation

• System temperature exceeded maximum rating

• Soft error occurred

• RAID controller error occurred

Enhanced Predictive Failure Analysis

The Cisco MCS 7835-I1 supports Enhanced Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA) on hot swap fans, power supplies, processors, and memory and voltage regulator modules. Through diagnostics the Cisco MCS 7835-I1 anticipates failures in these devices and generates an alert, which allows IT to quickly replace the components before a failure actually occurs. An example of PFA is its ability to monitor variations in electrical input/output to the power supplies and cooling fans.

36/72GB DAT Tape Support

The Cisco MCS 7835-I1 can support an optional 36/72GB universal serial bus (USB) external Digital Audio Tape (DAT) DAT drive (part number DAT-USB-EXT-72=) or an optional USB rack-mount DAT drive (part number DAT-UDB-RM-72=). This tape drive connects through one of the 4 USB 2.0 ports provided by the Cisco MCS 7835-I1 server.
