    Optimal business agility

    The IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis serves as the foundation for IBM Flex System, a brand-new computing category and the subsequent iteration of Smarter Computing. For optimal business agility, this platform delivers intelligent workload deployment and management. With integrated servers, storage, and networking for multi-chassis management in datacenter compute environments, this chassis offers high-speed performance. Additionally, because to its adaptable design, different workload requirements can be met with independently scalable IT resource pools, resulting in higher utilisation and lower cost per workload. The integrated, user-friendly management system cuts down on setup time and complexity, allowing for a quicker path to ROI while greater security and resilience safeguard sensitive data and encourage optimum uptime.

    Compact, scalable and high-performing

    The 10U next-generation server platform with integrated chassis management is called the IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis (machine type 8721). It is a compact, scalable, rack-mount, and high-performance server platform system. Within a single Flex System Enterprise Chassis, it supports up to 14 one-bay compute nodes that can share resources including power, cooling, management, and I/O. When the shelves are removed from the chassis, it can hold up to seven 2-bay computing nodes or three 4-bay compute nodes. To satisfy your unique hardware requirements, you can combine and match compute nodes with one, two, and four bays.

    Flex system components

    The following components can be supported by the Flex System Enterprise Chassis: 14 1-bay computing nodes (can also support seven 2-bay or three 4-bay compute nodes with the shelves removed). N+N or N+1 redundant power is provided by six 2500-watt power module. Ten modules for fans (eight 80 mm fan modules and two 40 mm fan modules). Two redundant pairs of four physical I/O modules, each of which offers: a four-lane physical connection capable of 16 Gbps speeds .Each compute node has either a single x4 port or four x1 ports.
