IBM eServer xSeries 460 / MXE 460 / Server

IBM eServer xSeries 460 / MXE 460

Discipline: Product

The IBM eServer xSeries 460 / MXE 460 is a high-performance scalable server and the embodiment of mainframe-inspired technology. It is 4-way up to 32-way and allows for partitioning of up to eight chassis for improved modularity. Ideal for virtualization, server consolidation and a high-end database.
The xSeries 460 and MXE 460 has a dramatic, yet distinct appearance in its angular bezel features along with the floating IBM logo. The hexagonal vent pattern is inherently better for airflow and creates a pleasing texture in the sheet metal panel. Other key design elements include a series of sculptured 2.5” hard disk handles that use a simple one-handed cam action with a blue accented trigger plus a front-accessible, drop-down control panel that gives the component status. These powerful design features exemplify seriousness and strength.
