For success in today’s demanding marketplace, small businesses require leadership price/performance to manage their bottom line. But competing against larger companies also requires an investment in technology and innovation that has to be justifiable from day one. For high performance computing (HPC) applications such as life and earth sciences research, computer-aided engineering or business intelligence grids as well as a variety of commercial applications such as Web serving, server consolidation and retail environments, it takes more than just the claim of innovation to deliver real value.
The IBM BladeCenter JS21 Express blade server, a feature-rich, pre-configured blade, is the answer to meet the stringent requirements of small businesses for advanced technology at a very attractive price. The JS21 Express delivers many leading-edge technologies—support for the IBM AIX® and Linux® operating systems, IBM Advanced POWER™ Virtualization (APV) and AltiVec™ SIMD acceleration functionality—in a single, highly reliable, high-performance, yet cost-efficient blade server.
