More Information

Robust features accommodate growth
An all-in-one tower or rack server, the IBM® System x3500 M4 delivers reliable performance and optimised efficiency. The versatile 5U dual-socket x3500 M4 fits desk-side or in a rack enclosure. Designed for your business-critical applications, including analytics, cloud computing, SAP, and data management, the x3500 M4 meets your growing business or distributed enterprise needs. You can also use it as a retail store controller at a branch office, a distributed file/print server, or an all-in-one server for a remote office or business. Start with the basics and upgrade as your business changes without jeopardising existing investments. Virtualising your PC infrastructure into a single powerful server gives you access to secure and abundant storage space, while significantly reducing IT costs.

Triple the storage capacity
The x3500 M4 supports the latest Intel micro-architecture, delivering intelligent performance enhancements that adapt to your workload environment. The x3500 M4 provides triple the storage capacity of the x3500 M3 without the cost of external devices. A flexible design and consolidated server help optimise intensive workloads and provide greater utilisation, making the x3500 M4 a great choice for small and medium businesses.
