Hi,

We recently migrated from z9 to IBM z10 EC. While I was checking what are the benefits or merits of z10, I came across a term like "Multi- Book Design", and z10 EC has four books. I was not able to understand the term Multi book design. Can anyone please explain the same or some reference manuals.

Thanks in Advance
Jagan

Hi,

Google on "Multi- Book Design for IBM z10 EC", from one of such links..
Quote:
The z10 EC is built using IBM's modular multi-book design that supports one to four books per server. Each z10 EC book contains a multi-chip module (MCM), which hosts the newly redesigned CMOS 11S processor units, storage control chips and high speed interfaces for I/O. The new quad core processor chip targets high frequency and will be introduced at 4.4 GHz and can help improve the execution of CPU intensive workloads on the z10 EC. The memory and books will be interconnected with a point-to-point symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) network for improved performance and availability. This approach facilitates the highavailability


Hoep this helps..

Hi,

Thanks for this.
I did use google before and found that they have mentioned z10 is based on modular multi book design. But there is no expalnation around what "modular" means or what are the modules based on which they designed.
