X6 servers are fast, agile and resilient
Offering extraordinary performance for big data, analytics, cloud computing, database and ERP workloads, X6 servers can provide:
As your business changes and grows, the ability to address evolving data center needs with systems that provide easy to deploy solutions today and flexibility for tomorrow is critical. X6 servers offer long-term flexibility with a modular design that supports processor and memory technology upgrades to the next generation as workload demands change–eliminating “rip and replacement”.6 These capabilities can reduce acquisition costs by up to 28%.7
X6 servers can help extend the advantages of cloud computing to mission-critical applications. Self-healing processor, I/O and memory features can improve availability by proactively identifying potential failures and taking action to correct them. New IBM Upward Integration Modules (UIMs) provide unprecedented hardware visibility to the hypervisor for superior system and VM management.
