IBM eServer p560Q Express

Inquire Request Quote

The IBM System p5™ 560Q mid-range server implements outstanding price/performance, mainframe-inspired reliability and availability features, and scalability to 16-cores. Based on IBM POWER5+™ processors with simultaneous multithreading1 and a scalable, 4U (EIA Units) building block package, the 19-inch rack-mount p5-560Q delivers performance, scalability and reliability features for commercial and technical applications. It is well-suited for large single applications, mid-sized databases and departmental high performance computing (HPC) serving. As a Linux consolidation server, it is designed to provide superior availability while reducing infrastructure costs.

The System p5 560Q platform offers a powerful one or two building block system that scales from 4- to 16-cores. The system’s modular architecture means you can start with a 4-core, single QCM system and easily add an additional QCM to upgrade to an 8-core system. A second building block with two additional QCMs can also be added when more processing power is needed to expand the server to 16-cores. With the System p5 560Q server, you have fewer management challenges because of its symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) building block technology. Additional I/O and storage capacity come standard with each building block added.
