New offerings strengthen the System x portfolio for a wide range of IT requirements
On a smarter planet, nearly everything computes. Home appliances, cars, roads, clothes, things most people would not recognize as computers now have built in intelligence. This is the daily reality of an instrumented, interconnected and intelligent world. But realizing the promise of a smarter planet requires more than adding intelligence to everything. We also have to make computing—from servers and systems to applications, tools, databases and storage—smarter.
IBM provides a well designed path to this new way of thinking with intelligent, integrated x86 systems that help you reduce costs and complexity and accelerate your journey.
IBM System x® and IBM BladeCenter® can provide you with the performance and flexibility you need with highly reliable servers and solutions that are easy to deploy, use and manage. Learn more about the optimized systems and solutions that are designed for the smarter computing era.
