LinuxPR: IBM Netfinity Delivers Industry's Leading Rack Optimized Servers

Apr 13, 2000, 15:22 (0 Talkback[s])

"IBM today announced new Netfinity® thin servers designed to deliver the highest computing power per square foot on Intel based platforms. With the new product offerings known as the 4500R and 6000R, IBM now offers the industry's most complete rack optimized product line for Linux, Windows and Novell servers."

""Floor space and the size of the server footprint are as important to our company as the scalability and reliability of our servers," said James Kluttz, Chief Technology Officer for North Carolina healthcare provider Novant Healthcare. "According to the calculations that we have done, the Netfinity 4500R would allow us to reclaim 75 percent of our raised floor space now occupied by existing servers. That's a tremendous savings.""

"Also delivered with this announcement, IBM is introducing the most extensive predictive failure analysis (PFA) for hardware and software components. For the first time on rack-optimized servers, a dedicated service processor derived from IBM System 390 technology measures critical hardware components. Combined with the innovative Netfinity software rejuvenation, the new servers notify customers of impending failures, allowing for time to take preventative measures."
