IBM Power Blade servers

IBM i running on an IBM POWER® processor-based blade delivers a scalable and virus resistant architecture with a proven reputation for exceptional business resiliency. IBM i is an integrated operating system with a trusted combination of relational database, security, Web services, networking and storage management capabilities. The IBM BladeCenter® innovative, open design offers a true alternative to a traditional rack/tower server and can help you use your space more efficiently, dramatically reducing cabling between servers, storage and networking and save on energy costs

For i clients, IBM offers the i Edition Express for BladeCenter S which is the perfect alternative to a traditional rack or tower server with comparable starting prices and enables clients to run their i applications and consolidate x86 servers into a single BladeCenter S chassis.

i Edition for BladeCenter S

The i Edition Express for BladeCenter S is a complete integrated business system that offers an attractive alternative for existing small and midsized IBM i clients to reduce IT costs and complexity by consolidating their IBM i and Windows® applications with an IBM BladeCenter solution.

The i Edition Express for BladeCenter S is the perfect alternative to a traditional rack or tower server with comparable starting prices and enables clients to run their i applications and consolidate x86 servers into a single BladeCenter S chassis that supports up to six blades and over 7 terabytes of disk storage. And, with a 3-year warranty included, the lease price of the new solution will often be less than what many i clients pay today.

You can achieve even higher value by consolidating existing x86 servers onto x86 blades in the same BladeCenter S chassis for centralized management, resource sharing, common leasing and 3-year warranty terms.
