Take advantage of Intel®’s Xeon dual-core ultra low-power processors, with the IBM HS20 ultra low-power blade servers. These servers deliver the same high-availability features that the rest of the IBM blade server line does, but delivers excellent high performance/watt to reduce TCO of your blade architecture.
These Intel®-based, high-density blade servers are designed to be compatible with the entire family of BladeCenter® chassis. The HS20 ultra low-power blade servers support 64-bit applications, but have Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology to support smooth transitions to 64-bit computing.
|IBM HS20 Ultra low-power Blade Server Specifications|
|Processors||Up to 2 x Intel Xeon Processor up to 2.0GHz|
|Max cache||1MB or 2MB|
|Memory||Up to 16GB PC2-3200 DDR2|
|Hard drives||Up to 2 x SAS HDDs|
|RAID||Integrated RAID 0,1 standard|
|Networking||Dual Gigabit Ethernet|
The HS20 blade servers are also packed with high availability features. With features like an integrated system management processor, Predictive Failure Analysis®, and light path diagnostics, you are ensured of maximum uptime of your blade server computing loads. In addition, you can add or change HS20 ultra low-power blade servers without disrupting the operation of other blade servers in the same IBM BladeCenter chassis. With the HS20 ultra low-power blade servers you can get high density compute power without sacrificing performance.
