IBM: Balancing Performance And Density

IBM's new System x3650 M4 is a rack mount server with a "pay-as-you-grow" design which the company said helps reduce costs and manage risks. The 2U server takes up to two, 8-core E5-2600 processors and up to 768 GBs of memory via 24 DIMM slots. It also offers internal storage of up to 18 TBs, as well as up to six PCIe slots or two double-width PCIe slots for mounting GPUs.

IBM also threw in redundant hot-swap fans, disks, and power supplies, as well as its Predictive Failure Analysis and light path diagnostics tools to warn of impending problems.
