IBM transforms mid-market eServer with integrated software.

In response to customer demand for easy-to-deploy and flexible e-business solutions, IBM has announced the broadest transformation of its IBM eServer iSeries in more than a decade, delivering pre-packaged software, On/Off Capacity Upgrade on Demand by the day and price/performance improvements of up to 80% for mid-market customers.

The relaunch is part of a two-year, $500 million initiative to re-energize one of the industry's most popular servers. Used by more than 200,000 customers around the world, IBM eServer iSeries is one of the industry's customer satisfaction leaders, according to IBM surveys. New IBM eServer iSeries models feature IBM's lineup of state-of-the-art e-business software, allowing customers to add capacity on the fly, and run up to 10 Linux partitions on a single processor for server consolidation.

"This is the most comprehensive reinvention of the product line since its inception more than a decade ago," said Al Zollar, general manager, IBM eServer iSeries. "With its integrated software, capacity by the day, and dramatic price improvements, the IBM eServer iSeries now offers customers all the tools they need to respond to the world of on-demand business."

"The newest capabilities and options in the IBM eServer iSeries provide outstanding flexibility and price performance for J.D. Edwards customers," said Les Wyatt, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, J.D. Edwards. "IBM's new Temporary Capacity Upgrade on Demand feature augments the existing open architecture solutions in J.D. Edwards 5 and maximizes the value that our software and services deliver to our customers."

IBM's storage portfolio complements the iSeries. For those situations that require external storage, IBM's Enterprise Storage Server (code-named "Shark") offers 24x7 reliability, cross platform support, manageability and return on investment. In addition, flexible financing from IBM Global Financing can further reduce up-front costs and help customers match expenses to solution benefits by spreading payments across the life of an iSeries implementation.

The new IBM eServer iSeries models will be available on February 21, 2003.
