IBM BladeCenter HX5 Server
Excellent flexibility, processing power, memory and input/output (I/O) capacity in a blade server[ibmhx5]
- Provide optimal performance for your demanding virtualisation and database applications
- Reduce qualification time by standardising on same system for two and four-socket server needs
- Scale memory without adding Central Processing Units (CPUs) or software licenses
- Get faster time to value by deploying workload-optimised systems.
With MAX5, HX5 currently offers the most memory of any server in itsclass. Reduce software licence costs by expanding memory capacity withMAX5without purchasing additional processors.
Easy to own, manage and upgrade with pay-as-you-grow expansion, theHX5blade server helps protect your investments over the long term.Capabilities such as advanced light path diagnostics, error handling andaround-the-clock remote access management help simplify systemsmanagement and minimise downtime. Automatic node failover and QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) faildown help promote greater system uptime.
