Read quotes from the strong IBM X6 community of solution providers, partners, and more.
"The IBM X6 server is truly unique in its ability to deliver massive processing power balanced with a large memory footprint and high I/O throughput. When used with Atlantis Computing software-defined storage solutions, customers can unlock all that power to create scale-out and hyper-converged compute platforms that deliver unprecedented performance for databases, big data and other IO intensive applications. In our benchmark testing, the Atlantis ILIO software running on a single IBM X6 server was able to deliver up to 3.7 million IOPS with 0.6 milliseconds latency. In addition, clients can deploy Atlantis ILIO software on a single IBM X6 server and turn 19 TB of RAW flash capacity into 57 TB of logical Flash storage."
