Forget all preconceived notions about the relationship between memory and processors. The new line of IBM System x servers no longer links memory to servers. This breakthrough in server technology allows for memory to be upgraded without purchasing new servers. These new servers are not only 97 times more efficient, they also come in a number of varieties; each suited for different business needs from entry level on up. Below is an excerpt from the article "25 Reasons Why Hardware is Still Hot at IBM"
"IBM’s new eX5 servers are the result of a three-year engineering effort to improve the economics of operating enterprise-size, x86-based systems. IBM says that with six times more memory scalability, eX5 systems integrate with IBM middleware to create a highly virtualized environment that can reduce the number of servers needed by half while cutting storage costs 97 percent and licensing fees by 50 percent."
The IBM server revolution is gaining full steam since its release last month. See why the System X portfolio is the obvious choice when it comes to business efficiency and investment protection.
