Product Description
The IBM System x3250 is a single-socket server that is easy to deploy, manage and service. It provides outstanding performance and reliability at an entry-level price. Designed for high-performance, dual-core 64-bit processors, the x3250 can optimize performance of your Web and network infrastructure. For a performance boost, choose models with Intel® Xeon® or Intel Pentium® D processors, while those running less demanding applications may prefer the Intel Celeron® processor. Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) HDDs and PCI-Express ensure even greater integrated I/O performance and compatibility with next-generation devices for added long-term investment protection.
