IBM SYSTEM X3550 M3 Server
Part Number: 7944ZKX
The IBM® System x3550 M3 builds on the latest Intel Xeon processor technology with extreme processing power and superior energy-management and cooling features. With twice the performance
of previous generations and a flexible, energy-smart design that integrates low-wattage components, the x3550 M3 can help you meet demanding workloads at a lower cost per watt.
Comprehensive systems management tools such as advanced diagnostics, a cable management arm, and the ability to control resources from a single point make it easy to deploy, integrate,
service, and manage. The server also offers an upgrade to four built-in Gigabit Ethernet ports without consuming an additional PCI Express slot.
