Executive Summary

Skyrocketing energy costs, as well as the rapidly rising amount of computational capacity per physical space within data centers, have brought power and cooling requirements into the forefront of challenges facing data center architects. It is no exaggeration to characterize the present situation confronting many organizations as a data center energy crisis. The increasing energy demands of the data center account for no small expenditure. IBM's new generation System x3650 M2 and x3550 M2 rack servers running the latest Intel Xeon 5500 Series quad core processors significantly lower total cost of ownership. Built with leadership energy-smart designs to simplify power distribution and reduce energy loss, these two-socket enterprise servers feature lower wattage, highly efficient power supplies exceeding the 80 Plus Gold standard, counter rotating fans, altimeters, and advanced power management.
