Part 2of5: IBM Flexes X6 and Xeon Muscle
IBM’s announcement of three new compute node solutions for its Flex Systems portfolio finds the company leveraging two well-established, well-respected technologies. The first is Intel’s Xeon E7v2 CPUs, the latest version of the processor family that dominates modern data center systems and sales. The second is IBM’s X6, the sixth generation of the X-Architecture technology that is designed to extend and maximize the value of industry standard x86-based systems.
As such, we believe these new Flex System compute nodes will deliver notable value to IBM individually, but they should also offer significant benefits beyond the company that are worth further consideration.
