IBM BladeCenter HX5

Highlights

Maximise memory

Going beyond the industry standards with unique innovations from fifth-generation IBM® X-Architecture® technology (eX5), the new IBM BladeCenter® HX5 enables unprecedented performance and utilisation in a blade form factor for database and virtualisation. With enhanced MAX5 scalability, the HX5 blade offers memory capacity of up to 1.25 TB—in a double-wide blade. The result is optimal server utilisation with more virtual machines per system and larger and faster databases.

Minimise cost

With MAX5, HX5 offers the most memory of any server in its class. Reduce software license costs by expanding memory capacity with MAX5 without purchasing additional processors.

Easy to own, manage and upgrade with pay-as-you-grow expansion, the HX5 blade server helps protect your investments over the long term. Capabilities such as advanced light path diagnostics, error handling and around-the-clock remote access management help simplify systems management and minimise downtime. Automatic node failover and QPI faildown help promote greater system uptime.
