Build Your Own IBM Flex System x280 X6, x480 X6, and x880 X6 Compute Nodes

Build your own IBM Flex System X6 Compute Node configured to your specific workload demands

The new IBM Flex System X6 Compute Node family consists of three servers from the Flex System portfolio. The Flex System x280 X6 is a two-socket scale-out server optimized for workloads that require large memory footprint and virtualization performance. The Flex System x480 X6 is scalable to a 4-socket system optimized for applications that require more processor cores and memory for larger virtual machines and databases. The Flex System x880 X6, the first scalable 8-socket Intel® Xeon® processor-based blade server, is ideal for workloads that demand the highest levels of capacity, performance and resiliency, such as analytics and large databases.

With the Flex System x480 X6 and x880 X6 Compute Nodes, adding more x86 compute horsepower is fast and simple. Add to this the modular blade design of the Flex System chassis—designed for multiple generations of compute and networking technology over the next decade—and the fast setup and configuration patterns available for automatic provisioning, and you can quickly see how the Flex System X6 Compute Nodes enable you to build a system that is fast, agile and resilient. To build your own IBM Flex System™ X6 Compute Node and buy direct from IBM, please select from the following options below, and configure your new X6 Compute Node built to order based on your workload demands and business needs.
