The community speaks
"We were really pleased with what we saw out of the IBM X-Architecture®. And we were really happy with the price point that we were getting. Being a state institution, budget is important. For us to be able to have better technology and have it at a better price—you can’t get any better than that."
- Jack Hoffman, team leader for UNIX systems, Medical University of South Carolina
"The capacity and scalability of the x3650 enable L&T-CASE to plan for additional throughput and, if necessary, further extension of its SAP applications. L&T-CASE is very satisfied with the SAP applications and IBM System x3650 infrastructure powered by Intel Xeon processors, and we are well placed to handle the workload."
- Mr S K Sethia, DGM-IT, L&T-Case
"We wanted something that was modular and scalable to a large number of cores, both for the computers as well as for the storage. It also had to be commodity hardware, and I think we found a good balance with IBM iDataPlex."
- Bryan Caron, Ph.D., director of business operations, CLUMEQ and Calcul Quebec, Compute Canada, McGill University
"Choosing these large, high-end IBM servers not only enabled us to significantly increase our server capacity without moving or extending our data centre – it also made financial sense. Due to the licensing schemes for VMware and Microsoft Windows, which at the time were based on a per-server model, we were able to avoid significant software costs, compared to purchasing a larger number of smaller machines."
- Ewan McDonald, Director of IT and Development, Sumerian
"The number one reason for consolidating to a single IBM System x3630 M3 is that it uniquely had an enormous amount of storage, processing power and memory in a single box."
- Shay Woodard, CIO of Beckmann Technologies and BlueLink Diagnostic Solutions.
