IBM launches new iDataPlex system for Web 2.0 computing
New Delhi: IBM has launched a new server, iDataPlex, to address the needs of companies using Web 2.0-style computing to operate data centres containing thousands of servers.
/Content/Videos/2008-04-25/IBM.flve82b3be6-11f7-11dd-9be0-000b5dabf613.flvThe company reports that the iDataPlex has the potential to eliminate the need for air conditioners and can run at room temperature via a liquid cooling wall on the back of the system.
The new servers will double the number of systems that can run in a single rack while consuming 40% less power. Its USP will be to ensure that as consumers demand richer content and more immediate access to Web-based applications, it will allow Internet, online gaming and social networking companies, as well as service providers, to scale rapidly to meet this emergent need.
