IBM unveils entry-level express servers for SMEs

Consolidates multiple workloads onto fewer systems

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM has launched entry-level servers, which provide affordable, easy to manage infrastructure offerings that are optimised for emerging workloads including IT consolidation, real-time analytics, mobile applications, information management and compliance offerings.

The entry-level systems are based on it’s POWER7 processor, which addresses the requirements of midsize enterprises, by allowing customers to consolidate multiple workloads onto fewer systems, helping to reduce server sprawl, lower IT costs and conserve energy.

IBM said that the four Express servers, which include Power 710, 720, 730 and 740 Express, can run up to 30,000 applications and offer performance, energy efficiency and other benefits of POWER7 technology to midsize enterprises.

These Power Express servers minimise complexity and provide the memory capacity, internal storage options, I/O expandability and RAS features needed for demanding workloads in high-growth midsize business.

In addition, the Power 710 and Power 730 are ideal infrastructure servers in dense 2U, one-two socket rack packages, while the Power 720 and Power 740 4U models provide flexibility with large memory capacities and internal storage for distributed applications, midsize databases and consolidation, IBM said.

The company has also launched four new i Solution Editions based on these new POWER7 Express servers, which are integrated and optimised for ERP deployment, featuring software from SAP, JD Edwards, Lawson and Infor.
