IBM refreshes server line for smaller businesses

IBM has launched new versions of its Intel-based servers for small and medium-sized businesses. Based on the Pentium 4 processor, the xSeries 206 and 306 servers represent IBM's latest attempt to target smaller customers.

Both systems use components derived from IBM's mainframe inspired X-Architecture technology, including its Director system management software and Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (ATA) disk drives, which could be swapped in and out of computers in less than a minute and without the use of tools, IBM said.

The xSeries 206 and 306 servers were follow-ups to IBM's xSeries 205 and 305 systems, and would cost the same as their predecessors, IBM said.

The 206 is a single-processor "tower" server priced at $US449, designed to be an email or file and print server for small businesses. The 306, also a single processor machine, is a thin, 1U (4.5cm thick) system designed to fit into large racks of servers.

Its list price began at $US1339, IBM said.
