With today’s data centres growing and becoming more complex than ever before, enterprise organisations look for innovative answers that combine extreme density with energy efficiency for productive, low-cost solutions. IBM BladeCenter E delivers a powerful platform to meet these requirements; it integrates servers, storage, networking and applications so organisations can build robust IT infrastructures. The result is a data centre packed with more operating horsepower that leaves a small carbon footprint.
Lower power usage
With its best-in-class energy-efficient design, BladeCenter E enables organisations to reduce power consumption without compromising processing performance. In fact, the system is 11 percent or more efficient in power and cooling compared to the HP c-Class chassis to run the same configuration in the data centre.1 With these power savings, an organisation can operate at full potential with lower energy costs – and can go green and save.
1 Configuration notes: HS21 blade in BladeCenter E and BL460c in c-Class, both with two 2.66 GHz dual-core processors, 16 GB memory, dual Ethernet, one 36 GB SAS hard disk drive (HDD). Power figures based on testing performance 04/14/2007 – per-server power usage is Prime95 avg 4 thread. IBM = 256 W, HP 289 W.
