Did you know?
The System x3250 M4 server is a compact, cost-effective, single-processor 1U rack server that has been optimized to provide outstanding availability, manageability, and performance features to small-to-medium-sized businesses, retail stores, or distributed enterprises. It supports the latest Intel Xeon E3-1200 v2 family of processors (formerly codenamed "Ivy Bridge") for applications that require performance and stability, and Core i3 processors for applications that require lower cost.
The system includes features not typically seen in this class of system, such as standard RAID-0/1 for simple-swap SATA models, remote control capabilities even when the machine is powered off, and Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA) on processor and memory. This flexible 1U rack-mountable server is also highly upgradable and expandable, scaling from low-cost, fixed-function models to feature-rich, highly available models.
Often small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs) have limited IT budget and resources, and rely on partners or multitalented employees to help manage the company’s network. Business needs for efficiency improvement and retention of critical data require the use of a server that is easy to get up and running quickly and is dependable. You need to squeeze as much as possible out of your IT dollars, while saving cost on features not needed in an SMB environment. The IBM System x3250 M4 is an ideal first server to meet those business needs. It was built for speed, yet eliminates costly design features found in general-purpose servers that are unnecessary for smaller businesses.
