IBM: Channel-Only FlexPac Converged Infrastructure Bundles
IBM in June unveiled its FlexPac bundles, a converged infrastructure offering based on its PureSystems platform and available on a channel-only basis.
IBM's FlexPac bundles, which include blade servers, a chassis, network switches and an optional management appliance, are aimed at helping IBM solution providers take advantage of a growing market for converged infrastructure offerings, the company said.
The entry configuration includes a Flex System Chassis with one Flex System Manager appliance, two server nodes with dual Intel Xeon E5-2620 processors and 64 GB of memory, two converged network switches, and a three-year on-site warranty. The value configuration is similar except that it includes four nodes, each with two Intel Xeon E5-2640 processors and 128 GB of memory, while the premium configuration has four nodes, each with two Intel Xeon E5-2680 processors and 256 GB of memory.
