IBM System x3250 M5

Highlights

The new IBM® System x3250 M5 is the most compact rack server in the IBM System x® portfolio. Designed in a single-socket 1U form factor, it supports double the system storage density of its predecessor in the same 22-inch deep chassis—four 3.5-inch hard disk drives (HDDs) or up to eight 2.5-inch SAS/SATA HDDs.2 Choose the latest Intel processor that best matches your workloads, whether Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3 series, Core i3, or Pentium, including Xeon Data Center Graphics processors. With increasing focus on data security, the included Trusted Platform Module (TPM) can help safely store cryptographic keys.

Expand with simplicity—on your timetable

After activating the IBM Integrated Management Module 2 (IMM2) standard on your server, you can use IBM Feature on Demand (FoD) for several upgrades. For example, using FoD you can easily enable two more Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports, in addition to the two standard ports, without opening your system hardware. You can also upgrade the speed and security of the ServeRAID C100 RAID-5 upgrade within the FoD key activation system. Furthermore, by using FoD for upgrades, your two PCIe x8 expansion slots remain free for other IBM certified upgrade options as your business grows.
