IBM BladeCenter IT Infrastructure Convergence

Converge your data centre
on your terms

Achieve a better future, faster with IBM BladeCenter

On your path towards convergence, you need to make sure your IT infrastructure can support mixed workloads and emerging cloud-based applications. Your IT infrastructure must have the reliability and performance needed now, and the flexibility to grow as your workload requirements change.

Do more now with IBM BladeCenter HS23 and HS23E servers

These latest blade servers can help you gain insight and efficiency so you can build a dynamic infrastructure—one with flexibility, energy efficiency and density. Both blade servers are supported on all current and previous IBM® BladeCenter® chassis, and like every BladeCenter system, they support superior reliability features and innovative management tools that help your critical applications to stay up and running longer.

BladeCenter HS23

The BladeCenter HS23 is optimised for performance and highly scalable I/O. The combination of integrated 10 GbE Virtual Fabric, 16 memory slots, and the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family make the HS23 blade server ideal for your virtualisation and cloud computing workloads.

The BladeCenter HS23 features:


BladeCenter HS23E

Get performance for value with the BladeCenter HS23E blade server. Optimised for energy efficiency and flexibility, the HS23E supports low-voltage processor and memory options for minimising energy usage, and two ports of integrated 1 GbE (scalable to 10 GbE) for networking scalability.

The IBM BladeCenter portfolio

Blade servers provide an ideal platform for network and server virtualisation and consolidation. With their modular design optimised for efficient use of physical space and energy, blade servers can support extraordinary performance while reducing your ongoing costs. The BladeCenter HS23 and HS23E servers are just two systems in the portfolio of IBM blade servers that support a wide range of workloads on Microsoft Windows, Linux and UNIX operating systems. So you get OS choice and the ability to consolidate many workloads into one system, while offering extraordinary energy efficiency, floor space savings and ease of management. And with IBM BladeCenter server technology, you can greatly increase server density versus rack servers, simplify cabling, lower power and cooling costs, ease server expansion, and simplify data centre management.
