The IBM System x3550 is a sleek 1u server designed for large enterprise and SMB accounts with highly constrained datacenter environments and demanding application workloads that need extreme rack optimized designs, with latest technologies that are integrated, cost sensitive and virtualization capable.
A newly designed front-accessible, drop-down light path diagnostic panel that provides an luminated “path” to locate and replace components. Tool-less quick release latches for sliding out the server, and sculptured handles with blue accents to remove two 3.5” hotplug hard-disks. These features embody dramatic, yet serious design.
