IBM xSeries 366 Server to Heat Up Competition


Byline: edu h. lopez

Competition in the local server market is expected to intensify with the introduction of IBMs eServer X3 architecture that would bring mainframe capabilities and sophisticated high-end technologies to the next-generation 64-bit Intel Xeon processor-based xSeries servers.

After a three-year development effort at a cost of $300 million, the new X3 architecture provides up to 38 percent higher fourway performance than the previous generation of Intel Xeon processor-based systems, enabling businesses to simultaneously run 32-bit and 64-bit applications and more rapidly process massive amounts of data.

"Were ahead of our competitors in introducing new technologies in the server space. We build new technologies because it adds value to our customers," said Peter Hedges, xSeries sales manager, systems technology group of IBM Asia Pacific during the launch at Speed Zone in Fort Bonifacio.

IBM Philippines also unveiled the new IBM eServer xSeries 366, the first in a planned IBM family of dual-core-capable Intelbased server offerings.

Priced at R598,000, the xSeries 366 server is built with 64-bit Intel Xeon processors MP and platform capabilities including support for DDR2-based Active Memory and Active PCI-X 2.0, the new standard for high performance server I/O.

This platform, combined with IBMs chipset technology expertise, can improve overall system performance compared to the previous generation by up to 38 percent when 64GB of memory is used.

The x366 will offer a significant price performance improvement over prior generations, eliminating the price discontinuity between two-way and four-way commercial platforms.

The new server is optimized for server consolidation and enterprise applications, including business software such as IBM DB2 Universal Database, SAP, Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle.

Hedges said that the X3 architecture is focused in reducing subsystem latency with higher system performance. …
