Optimal performance and virtualisation

The versatile IBM® System x3650 M4 blends outstanding uptime and performance for business-critical workloads, including cloud computing, virtual desktop and business analytics. The powerful server offers an energy-smart and easy-to-use rack solution with a pay-as-you-grow design to help manage risks. With more computing power per watt and the latest Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v2 series processors, advanced memory support and greater disk capacity for businesses requiring ample storage, the x3650 M4 offers balanced performance and density. Additionally, as the first x86 server to achieve the Transaction Processing Council - C (TPC-C) benchmark, virtualised (1 M trusted platform module (TPM)),1 the x3650 M4 is optimised for cloud computing and virtualisation applications.

Outstanding uptime

With redundant hot-swap fans, disks and power supplies, the x3650 M4 provides a resilient architecture ideal for business-critical applications. Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA) and light path diagnostics proactively monitor the system’s sub-components and provide advanced warning on power supplies, fans, voltage regulator module (VRMs), disks, processors and memory. Redundant hot-swap components make it easy to replace failures without taking your system down. Light path diagnostics displays a visible warning light indicator on a failing component, allowing time for component replacement prior to failure and facilitating high availability (HA).
