IBM Releases e-Server Line

IBM Corp. today announced IBM e-Server, a new line of servers featuring mainframe-class reliability and scalability, support of open standards for application development, and capacity on demand for managing e-business.

The IBM e-Server is a product of Project Mach 1, a major cross-company initiative begun three years ago to harness the company’s best technologies and practices to support the infrastructure for the next phase of e-business.

The e-Server line consists of several server series: the zSeries, pSeries, iSeries, and xSeries. All e-Server machines will feature two types of capacity upgrade on demand; logical partitioning; high availability clustering; and reliability and fault tolerance features.

Open standard accommodations in the e-Server line will include a comprehensive application toolkit as well as full compatibility with Java, XML, HTTP, HTML, and Linux and the option to include IBM WebSphere Application Server. – Isaac Slepner
