Compact and cost-effective
The IBM System x3250 M4 server delivers the latest Intel processor technology in an ultra-small, single-socket rack server. Priced for value and built for performance, the x3250 M4 offers large capacity 1600 MHz memory, standard low-cost ServeRAID-C100 technology and dual network adapters. The x3250 M4 meets 80-PLUS® certification for power supply units to enable greater energy efficiency and savings.
Flexible options for growth
With a flexible subsystem and wide range of configuration options, a newly designed compact dual-port NIC adapter is dedicated in x4 slot, which offers another PCIe x8 slot-free. The x3250 M4 enables you to choose the level of computing power you need today and grow to meet increased application requirements. Choose hard disk drive size and storage capacity, dual- or quad-core processors—or even advanced protection RAID.
