  • IBM Power Systems let you leverage the advantages of Linux while reducing power consumption, sharing resources, and increasing utilization.
  • Combine IBM i with your choice of Power Systems server to create a highly scalable and virus-resistant architecture with a proven track record of reliability.
  • IBM BladeCenter® offers an open, energy-sipping design that gives you an alternative to sprawling racks and crowded server rooms.

x86 Servers with Intel and AMD Processors

IBM System x™ family of servers includes rack, towers, and blades. They offer loads of options for configuration and customization—without any compromises on reliability or performance.

  • IBM System x™ gives you a modular and high-performance strategy for running Microsoft® Windows® and Linux® applications.
  • IBM System x tower- and rack-based servers deliver next-generation technology that the competition can't match. These multi-processor configurable servers are ideal for Windows and Linux workloads.
  • IBM BladeCenter® offers the innovative and award-winning products you need to save space, improve energy saving, and ensure long-term flexibility.
  • With acclaimed solutions like the IBM 1350 and iDataPlex servers, you can take standard hardware and adds capabilities for the most demanding applications.

IBM BladeCenter Designs

IBM BladeCenter® is all about adaptability. It supports many types of applications, environments, and performance requirements. Different blade servers and switch modules move seamlessly between chassis. So mixing and matching deployment choices for optimal density and power usage is simple.
