IBM System x3850 X6


Today, mission-critical applications are being called upon to do more as businesses expand access through new mobile and cloud deployments. Delivering the right answer at the right time means having ready access to actionable information. IT solutions must be able to easily scale performance, manage large masses of data and reliably make information available in real-time.

While the volume of data and transactions continues to grow exponentially, businesses remain constrained by a finite set of capital and operational resources. The new IBM® System x3850 X6 incorporates the sixth generation of IBM enterprise X-Architecture® (EXA) to help deliver better, more efficient business results.

X6 platforms can produce 100 percent faster compute performance than previous-generation systems.3 The X6 portfolio increases virtualization density and decreases infrastructure costs and complexity. This enables you to design faster analytics engines, rein in IT sprawl and deliver information with high reliability. X6 servers are fast, agile and resilient.
