Details

IBM xSeries 3550 provides virtualisation support and enterprise grade server features in a 1U form factor. This fully redundant server with high RAM capacity is capable of virtualising 64bit instances and has enough memory and CPU power to not be the bottlenecking point in your network deployment.

As x3550 servers only accept 2 x 3.5” drives this server configuration is ideal for web server applications where ram and raw power is more important than large storage capacity. For an equivalent server with 6 x 3.5” SAS / SATA slots and superior RAID capabilities have a look at the 2U IBM x3650 servers.

The IBM x3550 can be installed with a RSA II card for remote management. This in combination with dual gigabit NIC ports makes for a great choice of server where the business is wanting run dedicated gigabit uplinks to core routing equipment. IBM light path found on these machines is an easy way of monitoring system health. It allows the system administrators to quickly find any faults and aids in providing minimal server downtime.

The equivalent servers from HP and Dell are the HP ProLiant DL360 G5 and Dell PowerEdge 1950.
