Bigger is not always better. This is the case with our new Intel powered System X servers. Coupled with Intel's Xeon 7500 processors, our two socket blade servers can do as much if not more than the competition's 4 socket servers. With benchmark data to back to support our claim, system x servers not only reduce the need for more hardware but also create an environment suited for virtualization. Yesterday, Drew Robb of Server Watch put together a great server 'buyer's guide' in which he highlighted system X features and capabilities:
"The eX5s are already smoking the competition on industry benchmarks. The x3850 X5 scored the highest number of transactions-per-second ever achieved by a four-processor system on the TPC-E benchmark -- the top spot for four-socket and 32-core systems using Nehalem EX on VMware virtualization benchmarks."

The game is continually changing and we leading the back. Our blade servers are helping to reduce licensing and hardware costs while providing above average processing performance. For more information on ex5 servers, visit the ex5 homepage
