NEW - IBM System x3350 server

The System x3350 server delivers the performance, scalability, control, and serviceability you need to manage Web applications:

Product positioning

The System x3350 server is positioned as the entry 1U server of the System x rack-optimized product portfolio, filling a large one-socket/two-socket gap and enabling users to run applications like e-mail and collaboration, Web serving, and Javatm applications on a single-socket server.

This single-socket solution
incorporates the enhanced RAS and management features often found only in a dual-socket solution at a price point much closer to that of current single-socket solutions. These include:

Hot-swap and redundant power
Hot-swap and redundant fans
Hot-swap HDDs
Base Management Controller (BMC) with IPMI 2.0
Remote Supervisor Adapter II Slimline
Integrated HW RAID 0 and 1
Up to four HDDs hot-swap
Dual Ranked Memory
800 MHz memory

In addition to addressing concerns with server solution costs, the System x3350 server affords users greater scalability to accommodate changing workloads and provides them with the capability of running applications typically reserved for dual-processor servers.

For e-mail and collaboration, the System x3350 offers:

High availability features to enable up to 24/7 access to mission-critical e-mail and enable uninterrupted collaboration
Systems management to monitor, maintain, and maximize server availability to enable up to 24/7 access
I/O and storage for e-mail storage capacity and flexibility to meet growing and changing user needs
For Web serving, the x3350 offers:

High availability to enable up to 24/7 access to mission-critical, Web-enabled applications and data
Systems management to monitor, maintain, and maximize server availability
Memory throughput to enable uninterrupted response during peak volumes and seamless processing
Optimized for excellent 64-bit operation

The System x3350 server incorporates Intel Xeon processors with EM64T and dual-core or quad-core models. New Intel 64-bit extensions provide increased productivity, performance, and reliability for applications that can take advantage of 64-bit extensions.

With EM64T, you can run Intel-compatible software in either 32- or 64-bit extension mode. EM64T enables 64-bit extensions, allowing applications to address more memory and up to 1333 MHz FSB, which speeds up information access within the system.

Users can contact their software provider to determine their software support for EM64T and dual-core computing.
