The community speaks

"We're confident that with IBM, we are investing in a reliable and innovative solution that we can rely on for the long term."

Alaa Pasha, president and chief executive officer, MacromatiX

"Each time we invest in new System x servers, the additional capacity and performance creates opportunities to do new things."

Sanjay Rawal, CEO, Open Future

"The number one reason for consolidating to a single IBM System x3630 M3 is that it uniquely had an enormous amount of storage, processing power and memory in a single box."

Shay Woodard, CIO of Beckmann Technologies and BlueLink Diagnostic Solutions

"We don't have a lot of space, so the compactness of the iDataPlex relative to its processing power made it an excellent fit for our institution. Likewise, its slim design is optimized for heat dissipation, which means that it requires less energy to cool."

Vudhichai Parasuk, associate professor of chemistry and head of the computational chemistry unit cell at Chulalongkorn University

"The IBM iDataPlex solution puts us on the same level as animation studios on the other side of the world."

Auchuara Kijkanjanas, managing director, Kantana Animation Studios

"This implementation is an important step towards standardizing the IT systems within the entire group. An application-independent server infrastructure based on IBM System x and IBM BladeCenter technology allows us to operate our business applications more efficiently."

Dirk Kastner, Chief Information Officer, EDEKA Südwest

"SAN storage and virtualised servers used to be enterprise technologies, much too expensive for most schools. That has all changed. IBM's mid-range System x servers and System Storage disk systems are now within our reach, which means we can benefit from the lower operational costs and superior reliability provided by these technologies."

Darren Farrow, Network Manager, Lord Grey School
