Your applications are demanding. Analytics, imaging and simulation workloads require extreme computational power. But with most IT budgets under constant pressure, your organisation also demands financial responsibility. To support these competing challenges, you need a scalable high-performance computing system that supports the highest possible computational performance coupled with simple management, all while offering energy efficiency and extraordinary density to help you conserve power and data centre floor space.

Improved compute density

The IBM System x® iDataPlex® dx360 M4 is designed to optimise density and performance within typical data centre infrastructure limits. The unique half-depth form factor is designed to help you improve compute density in your space-constrained data centre while also improving system cooling and energy efficiency.
