IBM Power Blade servers

Built on the proven foundation of the IBM BladeCenter® family of products easy-to-use, integrated platforms with a high degree of deployment flexibility, energy efficiency, scalability and manageability—the IBM BladeCenter PS703 and PS704 Express are the premier blades for 64-bit applications. Minimize complexity, improve efficiency, automate processes, reduce energy consumption and scale easily: these are the benchmarks that matter on a smarter planet. The new POWER7® processor-based PS blades automatically optimize performance and capacity at either a system or virtual machine level and benefits from the new POWER7 processor, which contains innovative technologies that help maximize performance and optimizes energy efficiency. They represent one of the most flexible and cost-efficient solutions for UNIX®, i and Linux deployments available in the market. Further enhanced by its ability to be installed in the same chassis with other IBM BladeCenter blade servers, the PS blades can deliver the rapid return on investment that clients and businesses demand.
