For small organizations with big plans, the x3400 can grow with you. Deploy an infrastructure with less hardware that supports the same—or more—applications. Start with a basic configuration and add features and capacity to accommodate your growing business. For branch offices with demanding, complex data transactions, the x3400 offers dual-socket computing power and support for up to eight-core processor performance, making the x3400 an affordable yet robust system. Optional redundant features help maintain business-critical availability and uptime. Select configurations of the x3400 are part of the IBM Express Portfolio™ designed and priced to meet the needs of mid-sized businesses. Reliable and easy to manage, Express models/configurations vary by country.
