IBM introduces low-end managed server

IBM Corp. last week announced a new server for small- and mid-sized businesses that contains fault-tolerance and self-managing capabilities not seen before in systems of this size.

The eServer x205, a tower-based server equipped with a Pentium 4 processor, is 4U (7-inches) high and runs either factory-installed Microsoft Windows 2000 Server or Red Hat Linux.

The x.205 contains technologies from IBM’s self-managing Project Eliza, which help IT managers to manage, tune and adapt the server for its environment.

In addition, the server contains hot-swappable disk drives and supports remote management via the IBM Remote Supervisor Adapter. It also uses IBM Director, an IBM systems management program.

The x205 is a member of IBM’s x200 family of entry-level servers which start at US$680.

The server will be available this month. Prices for the x205 are not available.
