Product Description
Whether you are deploying today or positioning for growth tomorrow, even a midsize business requires similar server performance and reliability as a large enterprise. The IBM System x3800 delivers that outstanding performance, high availability and manageability that you demand along with advanced, integrated technologies that help protect your IT investment—features that you would expect in more high-end systems but at a price that you can afford. The x3800, an IBM System x™ tower-based system designed with IBM X3 Architecture, delivers the third generation of mainframe-inspired IBM Enterprise X-Architecture™ technology. Driving mission-critical applications such as Enterprise Resource Planning, collaboration (IBM Lotus Notes® and Microsoft® Exchange e-mail applications), terminal serving and database applications, the x3800 excels at performing transaction-intensive, traditional back-office and branch-office functions.
