    • IBM System x Tower Servers Proposal IBM System x3500 M3 High-performance, scalable tower server brings rock-solid reliability to your desk side Highlights  Allows greater flexibility with storage upgrade options and increased memory capacity  Enables high availability with enhanced RAID support and integrated systems management tools  Leverages latest Intel® Xeon® technology for faster processing speeds and energy-smart design Grow at your own pace A high-performance dual-socket tower server, the IBM® System x3500 M3 provides generous bandwidth, storage and expanded memory capacity up to 192 GB1. Start with a single Intel® Xeon® six-core processor, and add a second to double your processing capability. You can even add processors, storage and memory independently of one another for maximum configuration flexibility. Stay up and running With no single point of failure, the x3500 M3 is designed to run the most demanding applications reliably. New 6 Gbps RAID, more RAID adapters and more concentrated memory support higher availability, while integrated systems management tools provide control of resources from anywhere for simplified serviceability. Build on the latest technology The x3500 M3 takes advantage of the latest Intel Xeon technology with extreme processing power and superior energy efficiency. Low-voltage memory, cooling features and energy-smart design enable lower power, lower heat and less noise. At the same time, IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager™ can help you keep costs down and track, monitor and measure power consumption. © Copyright IBM Corporation, 2010.
