For Sale – Eight 8GB server grade DDR3 RAM sticks – suits Mac Pro’s

Specification matching or equivalent to the following:
– Crucial Micron 8GB PC3-10600R (Server) Memory CT102472BB1339 MT36JSF1G72PZ-1G4M1HF

These are working pulls from a MacPro 4,1 (2009) but will work in MacPro 5,1 (2010) as well as PC-based server systems. Purchased second-hand and given a full MEMTEST application run to check and went “live” for a good twelve months or so before being made surplus from further upgrades on the Mac’s.

If you have a compatible dual-processor cMP, then all slots can be filled with these for a full 64GB memory system.

Please note that many systems are fussy about RAMs – and hence you need to match all of the them. The RAMs here are Registered-ECC grade and any non-Registered (but ECC types) will need to be taken out.

Photo’s to follow but not sure if they’re different from stock images in terms of details.

Looking for £15 each with RM 2nd signed-for delivery, discounts on multiple sticks due to bundled delivery. Collection is always possible.

Cisco MDS 9700 switches prep for 64G Fibre Channel NVMe-oF

Gearing up for adoption of non-volatile memory over fabrics, Cisco upgraded its multilayer MDs network switches to help shops transition to the next generation of Fibre Channel block storage.

Cisco will add line cards for the Cisco MDS 9700 family for in-place hardware upgrades and an extension of Cisco SAN Analytics to support the NVMe protocol.

The new Cisco MDS 9700 switching hardware enables data centers to run multiple Fibre Channel (FC) generations in the same chassis. Other new features include Ansible modules that automate deployment of storage tasks for VMware vSAN, device aliases and zoning.

Cisco said it plans to ship 64G line cards for MDS-9706, MDS-9710 and MDS-9718 Director switches by the end of 2019. The new cards are timed in advance of 64 gigabit per second FC, also known as Gen 7 FC. A data center can install the Cisco line card to run 64 Gbps FC concurrently with existing 16-gig and 32-gig traffic.

MDS 9700 switches are part of the Cisco MDS 9000 product line, which consists of large networking devices that centralize the management of storage traffic at the switch level. Cisco MDS 9700 products launched in 2013, around the time NVMe flash media emerged as a contender to SATA-based SSDs.

Cisco follows Brocade

The latest Cisco MDS product update comes nearly 18 months after similar products hit the market by SAN switching rival Brocade, now part of semiconductor giant Broadcom. Broadcom and Cisco are the only large vendors who sell FC network switches and are positioning those devices for NVMe over FC implementations. There are also Ethernet and InfiniBand options for running NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF).

FC technology delivers a high level of lossless performance, while NVMe offers a quantum boost in network latency by routing traffic across PCI Express lanes. The combination is expected to have broad appeal to data centers with applications demanding extreme high performance.

Reengineering the Cisco MDS 9700 required a lot of work to avoid “rip and replace” scenarios, said Scott Sinclair, an analyst for storage at Enterprise Strategy Group, an IT research firm in Milford, Mass.

“There is a big desire to transition storage networks to NVMe, and the Fibre Channel community is making it insanely easy to do. Cisco had to do a lot of hard work to make this transition seamless, and that will help companies save a ton of money over the long haul,” Sinclair said.

Data centers can adapt existing FC technologies for NVMe via a software upgrade. FC has fewer hurdles to NVMe adoption than Ethernet-based remote direct memory access memory technologies, which include RDMA over Converged Ethernet and Internet Wide Area RDMA Protocol. Another NVME fabric option is TCP/IP, a server-native functionality popular with hyper-scale cloud providers.

Enhanced troubleshooting

Onboard telemetry is native to all Cisco MDS 9000 switches. The latest iteration of the software is designed to capture high-fidelity reads of all traffic, including traditional SCSI block messages and data sent via NVMe-oF. The tool allows admins to slide back one hour at a time to pinpoint trouble spots with networks or storage.

Dell EMC PowerMax SAN arrays meld NVMe, storage class memory

Dell EMC has injected Intel Optane storage class memory in its flagship PowerMax all-flash block array, adding a tier of persistent memory to buttress the NVMe over Fabrics-enabled block storage.

Dell EMC PowerMax is the first array to ship with non-volatile memory express (NVMe) SSDs and dual-ported Intel Optane DC 4800X SSDs resident on the same data plane. The Optane appears as a persistent tier and the dual ports provide redundancy needed by most modern data centers. Dell’s AI predictive engine automatically shifts high-value data between the tiers to eliminate overhead.

Intel Optane drives are based on Intel 3D XPoint nonvolatile memory, billed as a cross between dynamic RAM and NVMe flash. Dell was a co-development partner with Intel on the dual-ported Optane SSDs. (Intel also makes Optane technology available in smaller capacities as a dual inline memory module form factor.)

The vendor also introduced NVMe fabric modules for Dell EMC PowerMax, after teasing the componentry earlier this year. Dell said it has qualified host bus adapters for its PowerEdge servers and launched 32G Fibre Channel I/O modules and Connectrix switching gear, with updated PowerPath multi-path management software.

NVMe and SCM in tandem

Non-volatile memory express is a next-generation flash media that is widely believed will supplant SCSI storage. Unlike traditional networked storage, NVMe relies on PCI Express to transmit communication traffic, including commands, from applications to storage.

Dell EMC PowerMax
Dell EMC PowerMax combines NVMe flash and persistent memory storage with Intel Optane SCM SSDs.

A single Dell EMC PowerMAX systems spans from two to 16 controllers. A 10U entry PowerMax 2000 costs about $150,000, with 13 TB of usable storage in a single brick. There is no cost premium for adding NVMe and SCM, either individually or in combination. Dell said customers may opt for a PowerMax system with SCM only, although the relative newness of SCM would likely lead to higher overall purchase price.

Based on internal testing, Dell EMC PowerMax 8000 with NVMe and storage class memory (SCM) delivered 50% lower latency than Dell EMC’s VMAX 950F with SAS SSDs. The vendor rates PowerMax for 15 million IOPS, 350 Gbps throughput and read latency below 100 microseconds.

“I see this release as the fulfillment of the promise when PowerMax came out,” said Scott Sinclair, a storage analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group, an IT consultancy based in Milford, Mass. “The PowerMax is all based on NVMe, which eliminates the bottlenecks that held flash back, and it also enables the [integration] of SCM.”

Machine learning on Dell EMC PowerMax provides storage analytics on optimal data placement. The analysis moves hot data to Optane storage and back to NVMe when it is no longer in demand. Dell EMC said PowerMax analyzes 40 million data sets in real time, driving about 6 billion decisions on data per day.

This enables PowerMax users to take advantage of next generation of media, without creating an additional storage administration burden on the IT team, a Dell spokesperson said.

Automated provisioning has been added to PowerMax via integrated Ansible Playbook modules for hosts, networking and storage. Dell EMC also added a VMware vRealize Orchestrator plugin and a Container Storage Interface plugin to provision persistent storage for workloads in Kubernetes.
