Today’s data center managers are challenged with improving performance and efficiency without expanding budgets or footprints. This includes deploying more virtual machines as virtualization becomes the rule, rather than the exception, as well as increased transaction processing performance from database applications. Virtualization demands maximum memory to run the most-efficient virtual environments, and database and transaction processing applications need maximum memory capacity and bandwidth. Customers need to deliver increased performance for their applications.

IBM eX5 systems offer the ability to expand memory capacity as needed, beyond industry-standard constraints. MAX5 for System x will improve performance and efficiency without the need to purchase additional underutilized servers.
