Armonk, N.Y - 26 Feb 2002: IBM today announced that leading industry software developers will use IBM eServer* technology to test applications for the upcoming Intel® Xeon (TM) processor. Key independent software vendors (ISVs) will use the IBM eServer x360, IBM's first Intel®-based servers featuring the IA-32 Intel Xeon Processor MP and incorporating IBM Enterprise X-Architecture (TM) technology.(1)

Top application software developers such as J.D. Edwards will work with Intel and IBM to support new and existing 32-bit applications for the next generation Intel processors.

J.D. Edwards provides supply chain, CRM and enterprise software and consulting services that empower organizations to successfully manage their collaborative relationships with employees, customers, suppliers, and other business partners.

"We are very excited about the new features of Enterprise X-Architecture which are demonstrated in the new Intel-based IBM eServer x360," said Michael Madden, chief technology officer, J.D. Edwards. "These new systems will provide a robust SMP solution for our Windows-based OneWorld® customers."

"Supporting leading developers in the migration of their application to the upcoming Xeon Processor on IBM eServer xSeries systems will help customers have access to a large set of world-class solutions," said Susan Whitney, General Manager, IBM eServer xSeries. "The mainframe-inspired capabilities of IBM Enterprise X-Architecture, coupled with Intel's Xeon processor, is a winning combination for developers that will benefit customers in e-business applications."

The IBM eServer x360 marks the debut of IBM's XA-32 core chipset that features IBM's most advanced Copper Chip breakthroughs and mainframe-inspired technologies to offer customers forty percent more processors per rack while taking up a third less floor space than competing systems. The x360 packs 4-way computing power in a 3U rack-optimized design ideal for constrained data center and supports Microsoft® applications and operating systems, Linux®, Novell NetWare and other operating systems.

Built with technology from IBM's Project eLiza initiative, the IBM eServer x360 offers multiple layers of self-healing tools designed to allow the server to continue operating -- even through system errors or failures. To maintain high performance, intelligent technologies help allocate system resources to high-priority applications for extra support and help prevent bottlenecks in critical system resources, such as memory and network traffic.
