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.
Figure 1 shows the IBM System x3650 M4.

Did you know?
The x3650 M4 offers a flexible, scalable design and simple upgrade path to 16 hard-disk drives (HDDs) or
solid-state drives (SSDs) plus optical and tape drives at the same time, with up to six PCIe Gen 3 slots
and up to 768 GB of memory. This flexible onboard Ethernet solution provides four standard embedded
Gigabit Ethernet ports and two optional embedded 10 Gb Ethernet ports without occupying PCIe slots.
Comprehensive systems management tools with the next-generation Integrated Management Module II
(IMM2) make it easy to deploy, integrate, service, and manage.
