    IBM System x3690 X5

    Ground-breaking two-socket server delivers

    outstanding performance, memory and storage


    Achieve four-socket performance at a
    two-socket investment
    Grow to meet changing workload
    demands with unmatched memory
    Own and operate your systems with
    less complexity and cost
    Get peace of mind with enterprise-class
    reliability and availability

    EXA performance, two-socket value

    When it comes to business productivity, more is always better—
    especially if you can achieve it without using more money, space or
    energy. Innovative and cost-efficient, the IBM® System x3690 X5
    delivers four-socket performance, memory capacity and reliability fea-
    tures in a breakthrough two-socket system that incorporates Intel®
    Xeon® processors and fifth-generation IBM X-Architecture® (eX5)
    technology. By purchasing a system with two fewer sockets, you can
    cut your licensing costs in half while using less energy for a lower total
    cost of ownership. And you won’t have to trade performance for a
    denser form factor. The x3690 X5 offers leadership performance,
    including the ability to handle 12 percent more database transactions
    per minute than industry-standard two-socket servers.
    The x3690 X5 also offers simple-to-deploy, preconfigured systems
    that are optimized specifically for database workloads or virtualized
    environments. x3690 X5 Database Optimized Systems offer the
    right balance of processing power, memory and high-IOPS,
    high-capacity storage technology for your database workloads.
    x3690 X5 Virtualization Optimized Systems with embedded VMware
    vSphere 4.1 come standard with MAX5 for unmatched memory capac-
    ity in a two-socket system, allowing you to increase the size and quan-
    tity of your virtual machines.
