- Expands the capability of IBM® Flex System™ compute nodes
- Offers dedicated attachment for select standard PCIe adapters, fabric mezzanine adapters and next-generation graphics processing units
- Works in a variety of network and application environments
Over time, IT systems have become more complex and difficult to manage. Without the right systems in place, you run the risk of spending too much time on operations and maintenance and not enough time on innovation. You need a flexible infrastructure that can meet today’s ever-changing business demands.
The IBM Flex System PCIe Expansion Node is an element of the IBM PureFlex™ System family, which combines compute, storage, networking, virtualization and management into a single system that anticipates resource needs to help you optimize your infrastructure. The PCIe Expansion Node allows you to attach additional PCI express adapters, fabric mezzanine adapters and next-generation graphics processing units (GPU) to an IBM Flex System compute node, which expands the compute node’s capability.
