IBM System X and Blade Centre Technologies
IBM’s innovative approach to System X design delivers solutions that are easier to manage, use less power, produce significantly less heat, have longer life spans and are easy to set up and scale. The IBM System X product range is divided into 3 world-class technologies to help businesses move forward and maximise their IT potential.
IBM System X Enterprise Servers
IBM System X enterprise servers are the ideal platform for today’s business-critical applications (such as database processing, customer relationship management and enterprise resource planning) and highly consolidated, virtual server environments. With multiple workloads running on the same server, performance remains important but reliability and availability become more critical than ever. IBM System X enterprise servers are built with eX5 technologies, which include a unique chipset and other advanced capabilities that give you higher throughput, exceptional reliability and the ideal platform for virtualisation.
IBM System x Rack and Tower Servers
The philosophy regarding IBM System x rack-mount and tower servers is “innovation comes standard.” IBM delivers next-generation technology today that the competition can’t match. Some server vendors view single- and dual-socket servers as commodities, using off-the-shelf components to produce cookie-cutter servers with no added value. Instead, IBM X-Architecture system design begins with standard parts and adds innovation to create something more practical: outstanding dual- and quad-core performance, high availability, scalability, power efficiency, and proactive manageability.
IBM Blade Center Blade Servers
By integrating servers, storage, and networking, IBM Blade Centre is helping companies in every industry sweep complexity aside. The blades contain all the necessities to run an application—processors, memory, I/O, and storage. The chassis contains shared redundant power, shared hot-swap cooling, DVD, integrated Ethernet, storage, switching, and consolidated powerful management. Its innovative, open design offers a true alternative to today’s sprawling racks and overheated server rooms. IBM’s unique solution provides a stage to integrate Intel/AMD and System P under one robust and reliable platform. So toss your cables. You have nothing to lose but complexity.
