New IBM X6 servers feature a new system architecture with IBM eXFlash memory-channel storage technology delivering lower latency than PCIe based flash storage for significantly faster database performance.1 This performance increase supports increased consolidation to help reduce licensing and storage costs.
The new systems also support long term flexibility with a modular design which allows for easy upgrades – three or more generations of CPU technology can be supported in a single chassis. These capabilities can reduce acquisition costs by up to 28 percent.2
And to keep your critical virtualised and cloud solutions up and running, the systems also offer new resiliency features, including autonomous self-healing CPU and memory systems.
Big data server
Purpose-built for big data, the new IBM System x3650 M4 BD rack server is designed for rapid analysis of enormous volumes of data. This 2U, two-socket server offers:
With up to 56 TB of internal capacity and 14 drive bays, the server supports industry-leading storage capacity. The server also incorporates advanced reliability, availability and serviceability features for outstanding uptime, and drives cost-savings through its wide operating temperature range and energy-efficient power supplies.
