Innovative ultra-dense design

Within a dense 2U design, the IBM System x3750 M4 provides advanced features and capabilities. These include support for up to four sockets and 48 DIMMs, mix and match internal storage, up to 16 HDDs or 32 eXFlash SSD drives, six hot-swap dual rotor fans, two power supplies and integrated 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and 10 GbE networking with options for fiber or copper.

Pay as you grow

The x3750 M4 blends outstanding flexibility and expandability. The unique 2+2 socket design enables pay-as-you-grow processing and memory expansion to help lower cost and manage growth. The 5+3 PCIe socket design allows you to pay for I/O capabilities as needed. The x3750 M4's capabilities and performance allow clients to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) by up to 52 percent over four years by consolidating multiple 2-socket servers into fewer 4- socket x3750 M4 servers.1
