Maximum memory for unmatched virtualization capabilities
As your company grows, so does pressure on your data center. You may find that you need to add more and more server capacity to meet these demands. But more servers lead to an escalating systems management burden, increasing server sprawl, and growing power consumption during a time of soaring energy costs.
With virtualization on IBM System x® and BladeCenter®, new workloads do not have to mean new servers.
IBM solutions allow you to meet the demands of your business – today and tomorrow – while helping you keep cost and complexity under control. With System x and BladeCenter systems, you get:
IBM BladeCenter HS23
The BladeCenter HS23 is a performance-optimized blade server ideal for network and server virtualization. The HS23 features up to 2 Intel® Xeon® processors E5-2600 product family, integrated 10 GbE Virtual Fabric that can scale up to four 10 Gb physical ports for high speed networking bandwidth, and 16 DIMM slots supporting up to 512 GB of DDR3 memory for supporting more and larger virtual machines per blade compared to previous generations.
IBM eX5 systems optimized for virtualization
IBM System x and BladeCenter workload optimized systems for virtualization are preconfigured, pretested configurations, optimized to deliver more partitions and larger workloads. Containing the right balance of processing power, memory and I/O, and pretested with VMware and Red Hat (KVM) virtualization software, these server configurations can help reduce your expenses with no trade-offs to business productivity. And unlike the competition, IBM provides you with the opportunity to order a pre-integrated system that is easy-to-deploy, containing all the necessary components to get your business-critical workloads up and running within minutes.
IBM BladeCenter Foundation for Cloud
IBM BladeCenter Foundation for Cloud provides a comprehensive converged solution that brings together servers, storage, networking, management, software and services needed to quickly establish a robust and virtualized environment. This highly reliable and scalable platform can easily be extended to a private cloud with the addition of IBM SmartCloud Entry software that includes leading edge self-service portal, automation and metering.
