IBM Corp. has released a new version of its server architecture for big data analytics and cloud computing in an effort to help customers enhance system performance.
The X6 architecture, built for x86-based servers and PureSystems services for analytics and cloud, features an eXFlash memory-channel with up to 12.8 terabytes of flash storage, IBM said Thursday.
Adalio Sanchez, general manager for IBM x-86 and PureSystems services, said the company intends for the new version of its X architecture to help protect client workloads.
The X6 architecture works to identify and fix potential system failures and users can perform management tasks by using integration modules through virtualization tools.
IBM unveiled the System x3650 storage server for up to 14 drives, and IBM FlashSystem 840 for analytical databases, virtualization platforms and public and private clouds.
The new IBM Platform Resource Scheduler is also built with OpenStack for private and hybrid IBM SmartCloud clients to allocate resources.
