IBM BladeCenter E Chassis
Extreme density, energy efficiency and reliability forspace- and power-constrained enterprises[bladeechassis]
With today’s data centers growing and becoming more complex thanever before, enterprise organizations look for innovative answers thatcombine extreme density with energy efficiency for productive, low-cost solutions. IBMBladeCenter E delivers a powerful platform tomeet these requirements; it integrates servers, storage, networking andapplications so organizations can build robust IT infrastructures. Theresult is a data center packed with more operating horsepower thatleaves a small carbon footprint.
Lower power usage
With its best-in-class energy-efficient design, BladeCenter E enables organizations to reduce power consumption without compromising processing performance. In fact, the system is 11% or more efficient inpower and cooling compared to the HP c-Class chassis to run the same configuration in the data center. With these power savings, an organisation can operate at full potential with lower energy costs—and can go green and save.
Manage growth through performance density
To help organizations expand their business, BladeCenterEcan hold up to 168 processors (containing up to 1008 cores)in a standard 42U rack, delivering major computing power in a small space. This helps power- and space-constrained customers make the most of data center square-footage; smaller spaces can easily accommodate business growth. Additionally, BladeCenter E features a highly integrated infrastructure to help simplify the deployment and management of servers, so organizations can get up and running more quickly. Tools like IBM Open Fabric Manager help speed network and server deployment and easily handle infrastructure failover.
