IBM unveils additions to the Flex System 

The latest additions to the Flex System are three systems built on IBM POWER7+ and a “double dense” X222 system built on X86 technology. IBM unveiled the following: the Flex System X222, a double density design that supports up to 2,800 Windows 7 user images on a single chassis; the Flex System P460, built on POWER7+ for customers with large workloads; the Flex System P270, which is also built on POWER7+ but designed for medium sized businesses; and the Flex System P260, built on POWER7+ and meant for IBM i workloads.

In addition, IBM has upgraded the Flex System’s manager. Clients can now monitor and manage up to 5,000 infrastructure endpoints using iOS, Android or BlackBerry devices. The Flex System Manager also provides a new utilization fuel gauge that tracks the status and availability of their infrastructure. Another update gives it the ability to manage the System X HANA-optimized X3950. 

IBM believes the additions to the Flex System portfolio will be good news for its channel partners. There are currently over 4,500 channel partners for PureFlex and the Flex System. Now, IBM business partners can select Flex System bundles that are configured and priced for their local markets.
