System x iDataPlex dx360 M4


Your applications are demanding. Analytics, imaging and simulation workloads require extreme computational power. But with most IT budgets under constant pressure, your organization also demands financial responsibility. To support these competing challenges, you need a scalable high-performance computing system that supports the highest possible computational performance coupled with simple management, all while offering energy efficiency and extraordinary density to help you conserve power and data center floor space.

Improved compute density

The System x® iDataPlex® dx360 M4 is designed to optimize density and performance within typical data center infrastructure limits. The unique half-depth form factor is designed to help you improve compute density in your space-constrained data center while also improving system cooling and energy efficiency.
