Compact, powerful compute node for high-performance
IBM System x3450
■ Features industry-leading
technology to deliver maximum
performance for minimal
■ Helps manage growth,
complexity and risk with large
memory addressability and
■ Saves valuable real estate for
large cluster deployments due
to its 1U space-saving design
Organizations need powerful servers
that can deliver high performance—
providing only necessary features. The
IBM System x3450 provides maximum
performance for a ﬁxed investment,
enabling organizations to run compute-
Innovation drives performance
The x3450 delivers high performance
thanks to quad-core and dual-core
processors with 1600 MHz front-side
bus to speed I/O and 16 Fully Buffered
DIMMs for large memory addressability.
Both allow organizations to run applica
tions more quickly.
The x3450 is designed with fewer gen
eral purpose features and minimal hard
ware component redundancies. Other
16 DIMMs for better system per
formance ideal for compute-
DDR II for power-efficient memory.
Single non-redundant power supply
for energy efficiency.
Save costs by scaling out
The x3450 provides scalable memory
solutions to accommodate expansion.
Building on existing systems, organiza
tions can plan for future growth while
protecting their investment.
Compact design for high efficiency
The space-saving x3450 design helps
provide more space for crowded data
centers without compromising perform
ance. High performance computing
has expanded beyond universities and
research organizations to become
mainstream. The x3450 delivers the
costs and performance needed in this
