Introducing IBM eX5 enterprise systems
Make your business operate smarter.
Workloads are growing, data is exploding, and memory-intensive applications need more than raw processing power, they need more memory to maximize performance. Enterprise X-Architecture allows System x and BladeCenter systems to boost performance and minimize licensing costs by de-coupling memory from the processor. This allows businesses to add memory as needed without necessarily adding servers.
IBM eX5 enterprise systems deliver extraordinary value and investment protection for enterprise-level virtualization, database, and transaction processing.
