When an organization needs more computing power for today’s memory-intensive
workloads, the conventional wisdom is to buy more servers. This can lead to massive
inefficiency and server sprawl, with the majority of servers today running at only 10%
utilization. 1 As the computational demands of a smarter planet continue to explode,
this sort of inefficiency has become a problem—a problem IBM engineers have now
solved. The 5th generation of Enterprise X-Architecture® from IBM featuring the Intel®
Xeon® Processor 7500 Series lets you add memory independently of the processor.
As a result, IBM eX5 systems can leverage 6x more memory than current x86 servers,
reduce storage costs by up to 97% and cut licensing fees by 50%.2
A smarter business needs smarter software, systems and services.
