Top Competitive Selling Points for System x3500 M4
(As of November 7, 2014)

A scalable, high-performance, energy-efficient, two-socket server with integrated high-availability functionality for the most demanding business-critical applications.

The x3500 M4 offers:

  • 22-nm Intel E5-2600 v2 “Ivy Bridge-EP” processors, which feature Intel’s Tri-Gate transistors. These processors are a shrink of the “Sandy Bridge-EP” processors and include all of the features of “Sandy Bridge-EP” plus improved power consumption. Intel has extended the core count of “Ivy Bridge-EP” to twelve cores for added performance.
  • Enhanced virtualization with Intel Trusted Execution Technology (TXT), providing hardware-based mechanisms that help protect against software-based attacks by sectioning off application environments.
  • Up to 768 GB (24 DIMMs) of LRDIMMs with ECC, up to 384 GB (18 DIMMs) of DDR3 RDIMMs with ECC, or up to 64 GB of DDR3 UDIMMs with ECC, including 1.35V low-voltage DIMMs.
  • A high level of energy efficiency with energy-efficient “Ivy Bridge-EP” processors, low-voltage DIMMs, an energy smart design, and Active Energy Manager power monitoring and control. The x3500 M4 is ENERGY STAR v2.0 compliant.
  • An optional 12 Gb/s controller with hardware-based RAID 0, 1, and 10. Upgrades to RAID 5, 6, 50, and 60 are also available.
  • Flexible storage options, with support for up to eight 2.5-inch hot-swap drives or eight 3.5-inch drives in the base configurations. Up to 32 2.5-inch SAS drives, SATA drives, and solid-state drives (SSDs) can be configured. Intermixing of SAS and SATA drives is allowed.
  • New, higher reliability SAS or SATA drives, including Advanced Format SATA drives.
  • An advanced Integrated Management Module (IMM2) that enables remote control to manage, monitor, and troubleshoot servers from any location. It has an integrated video controller, a remote presence/cKVM function, and Super I/O. The IMM2 has a responsive user interface, fast power on, and high remote-presence performance.
  • A TPM chip, which is a coprocessor that can hold cryptographic keys that protect information.
  • Seven PCI Express 3.0 slots (three x16 and two x8, plus two x4 electrical), plus one PCI Express 2.0 x4 slot and one optional PCI-X slot. Support for PCI Express and PCI-X makes the transition easier for legacy card users.
  • An optional Virtual Media Key for additional systems-management capabilities, including:
    • Web-based out-of-band control
    • Virtual floppy and optical drive support
    • Windows “blue screen” error capture
    • LDAP and SSL support
    • Remote redirection of PCI video, keyboard, and mouse (cKVM)
  • A quiet server that delivers exceptional energy efficiency at an economical price point.
  • Two internal, two front, and four rear USB ports. The internal ports can be used for virtualization or security/authentication needs.
  • A choice of two hot-swap and redundant 80 PLUS Platinum (94%) power supplies and a smart, redundant cooling design that delivers exceptional energy efficiency.
  • Two Slimline media bays for an optical drive and a choice of internal tape drives.
  • Enhanced Predictive Failure Analysis, which helps decrease planned and unplanned server downtime for improved reliability and maximum utilization.
  • Light-Path Diagnostics, which helps speed up diagnosis of failures by providing a lighted path to problem components, minimizing maintenance expense and downtime.
  • ToolsCenter, which provides a single website for creating bootable media (CD, DVD, or USB), with updates customized for customers’ systems.
  • Integrated quad-port Gigabit Ethernet with the option of two 10 Gb Ethernet ports via a mezzanine card.
  • Systems Director at no additional cost, which delivers a single interface for managing both physical and virtual resources.
  • A three-year, Next Business Day warranty.
