Hello, PFA is part of System x & ThinkSystem RAS features. RAS=Reliability Availabilty Serviceability.
This was originally a feature built into IBM System x products and now has carried over to Lenovo System x and Lenovo ThinkSystem.
Certain components support PFA, so the component can be removed prior to going bad. It is my understanding that Lenovo supports more PFA compenents than any otherOEM.
Here is a link to an old IBM document that explains PFA: http://www-05.ibm.com/hu/termekismertetok/xseries/dn/pfa.pdf
Let me know if you need more info. Cheers.
