System x X6 platforms

Discipline: Product

IBM scalable System x X6 platforms represent a new design approach to high-performance computing systems. Focused on improved accessibility, the modular and bezel-less “bookshelf” design offers easy front and rear access to all serviceable components – in the rack! All functional elements are featured as part of an intuitive user-friendly design language. The modular approach also translates into tangible business benefits. Now, maintenance and service require less time. Reusable modules facilitate seamless growth from four-socket to eight-socket configurations, and a single chassis design supports upgrades through three generations of technology.
