Yesterday we introduced the IBM BladeCenter HS22V. I wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the features that this great new product brings to the market.
The IBM BladeCenter® HS22V has been designed specifically for use in virtualized environments. With 18 DIMM slots supporting up to 144 GB of DDR3 memory, the HS22V allows you to fit more and larger virtual machines per blade. Durable solid-state drives and hardware RAID-0 and -1 provide outstanding reliability when virtualizing multiple workloads on a single blade. An embedded hypervisor enables easy deployment of industry-leading third-party virtualization solutions. Combine the HS22V with Virtual Fabric for IBM BladeCenter for a flexible, easy, fast and reliable I/O solution that helps reduce cost and complexity.
These features mean that your power consumption drops, your cooling requirements are reduced, and your virtualization goes up with the increase in memory allowed by this system. Since you can always mix and match the HS22V with other BladeCenter products, you now have the even greater flexibility to build out your datacenter directly to your needs. Adding more computing power gets easier every day.
