The new IBM System x3850 X6 and IBM System x3950 X6 Workload Optimized Solutions for SAP HANA server models incorporate the sixth generation of IBM enterprise X-Architecture (EXA) to help deliver better, more efficient business results.
The x3850 X6 and x3950 X6 servers introduce an innovative, modular rack design that leverages the ability to select, add, modify, and upgrade each subsystem of the platform to create fit-for-purpose configurations, maximize server utilization, and help lower acquisition costs.
The x3850 X6 and x3950 X6 are built from the ground-up with advanced X6 RAS technology that complements the advanced RAS in the Intel Xeon E7 product family. Advanced X6 RAS increases system high availability, proactively responds to advanced predictive failure alerts, and integrates platform RAS with standard operating systems for solution-level RAS capabilities.
The X6 technology is fast, agile, and resilient, featuring:
- Preconfigured workload optimized server models for SAP HANA applications for 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, 1 TB, and 2 TB implementations.
- Upgrade options that support larger single node and scale-out cluster implementations.
- The inclusion of IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS) Single Server for x86 Integrated Offerings software with 3-year software subscription and support. The SAP HANA software is included, but license is sold separately by SAP.
