performance, virtualization and easy management
IBM System x3550 M2
Reduce cost with an energy-
smart design that provides opti-
mal quad-core computing
performance per watt
Improve service with a highly
flexible design that is easy to
deploy, integrate and manage
Manage risk with resilient
architectures and virtualized
Energy-efficient profile
The IBM System x3550 M2 offers
robust, proven technology and a
flexible, energy-smart design.
Delivering quad-core computing on
Intel® Xeon® 5500 Series processors
with QuickPath Interconnect technol-
ogy, this server delivers significant per-
formance improvement per watt
compared to previous generation
servers by integrating low-wattage
components for an energy-smart
thermal profile.
Powerful systems management
This server offers feature-rich
systems management capabilities
from power management to proactive
hardware monitoring. The Integrated
Management Module (IMM) increases
server availability by continuously
monitoring your system and notifying
you of potential system failures or
changes. The Virtual Media key option
provides remote presence capabilities
without taking up a slot on the planar,
while IBM Systems Director Active
Energy Manager™ provides advanced
power monitoring and notification.
Leadership virtualization
Designed to provide leadership virtual-
ization, the x3550 M2 supports the
VMware ESXi 3.5 embedded hypervi-
sor, the industry-leading solution for vir-
tualization. In addition, the x3550 M2
provides exceptional memory capacity
per core, enabling you to implement vir-
tualization efficiently and cost-effectively.
Select configurations of the x3550 M2
are part of the IBM Express
