IBM System x3650 M4
IBM Redbooks Product Guide
The IBM® System x3650 M4 server provides outstanding performance for your business-critical
applications. Its energy-efficient design supports more cores, memory, and data capacity in a scalable 2U
package that is easy to service and manage. With more computing power per watt and the latest Intel
Xeon processors, you can reduce costs while maintaining speed and availability.
Suggested use: database, virtualization, enterprise applications, collaboration/email, streaming media,
web, HPC, Microsoft RemoteFX, and cloud applications.
