Product Description
The IBM System x3400 is an excellent low-cost solution for growing businesses or branch offices that rely on 24x7 availability and mission-critical applications. Optional features let you configure a server customized for your needs—from basic file-and-print to a robust, mission-critical application server—saving you time and money. 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.
