IBM Launches Sixth Generation EXA Solutions Part 1 of 2
IBM announced the sixth generation of its enterprise X-Architecture (X6) for System x and PureSystems servers which the company said would provide industry-leading improvements in the performance and economics of x86-based systems for analytics and cloud. The X6 architecture represents IBM’s continuing R&D investment and industry leadership in x86-based systems, and is specifically designed to provide new levels of performance and resiliency for enterprise applications.
The company noted that x86-based systems are the first choice for many organizations that are adopting analytics for greater business insight and moving critical workloads like ERP, analytics and databases to the cloud for increased efficiency and lower costs. For memory-hungry applications, X6 delivers three times the scalable memory of current competitors’ and IBM x86-based systems to support cloud and analytics.
