IBM recently announced the newest generation of its X-Architecture for System x and PureSystems, as the company continues to focus on business clients. As more companies embrace cloud computing and big data analytics, there is a need for a modern architecture that is scalable to support changing business needs. Of note, the IBM X6 provides three times more scalable memory than rival X86-based systems, with up to 12.8 terabytes of flash memory support.
"Our enterprise X-Architecture for x86-based servers and solutions delivers high performance and the highest customer satisfaction in the industry, making us number one in hig-end x86 systems," said Adalio Sanchez, IBM x86 general manager, in a statement. "We continue to innovate and deliver leadership performance, reliability and investment protection for mission-critical workloads with X6."
IBM remains an industry leader in enterprise technologies, though tends to not grab the same amount of media attention as rivals.
