We've been telling you for a while that the new family of System X servers are pioneering server space and about how we are changing the server game. This time take it from HPC Wire- HPCwire calls itself the "most recognized and accessed news and information site covering the entire ecosystem of High Productivity Computing." It's no surprise that HPC Wire has recently praised IBM for developing servers giving users the available option to scale up or scale down rapidly depending on the workload. In their May 20 article New IBM Systems Optimized for Clusters, Storage-Hungry Appliations, the High Productivity Computing writers found noteworthy our new System X3620 M3:
"Additionally today, IBM announced the new System x3620 M3, a two-socket rack server with 16 terabytes of low-cost internal storage. Designed for businesses coping with ever-expanding storage needs, the x3620 is especially suited for enterprises facing the online data deluge -- social networking, video-serving or online gaming. With many of the features and characteristics of IBM's enterprise-class x86 servers, the x3620 M3 offers industry-leading processor performance and functionality while providing support for software RAID or advanced hardware RAID."
After having perused the HPC Wire site, it's obvious that they are both selective in what they publish out and they live up to their self proclaimed wide coverage of high productivity computing. All in all I would definitely call them a trusted source and will be frequenting their site. As always for more information on IBM and on system X visit our website.
