SOLUTIONS - Let IBM BLADES solve your Growing Pains

Meeting today’s budget while planning for tomorrow’s growth can be difficult. With the new IBM BladeCenter® LS42 blade server and IBM’s 2+2 pricing program, IBM offers an affordable, scalable 2-processor LS42 blade server that you can easily upgrade to four processors as your business grows without paying a premium—simple blade expansion with investment protection no competitor can match.

Performance you can count on
The new BladeCenter LS42 blade server features the latest quad-core AMD Opteron processors for industry-leading performance. Supporting high memory capacity 16 DIMM slots and memory speeds up to 800MHz, the LS42 blade server can help drive your most demanding memory-intensive workloads such as virtualization, databases and high performance computing (HPC) applications.
Energy efficiency to help your bottom line
The LS42 blade server offers an energy-efficient design along with low-voltage processors, integrated memory controller and available solid-state drives to help keep power consumption down and reduce cooling demands in your data center.

Click and scale, pay as you grow

The unique 2+2 pricing program available on the LS42 lets you start with a 30mm, single-wide, 2-processor blade server. When workloads demand more performance, this blade server is ready to scale to four processors with the addition of a multi-processor expansion unit (MPE). Simply snap the MPE onto the original blade and it becomes a 4-processor, 60mm blade server with the additional performance you need. Best of all, this expansion capability won’t break the bank.
