New IBM eServer system offers 110 percent more performance.

IBM has announced a new low-end IBM eServer system that offers 110 percent more performance at one-third lower cost than its predecessor, making it an attractive option for small- and medium-sized businesses.

With this new system IBM now offers customers a complete range of servers from high-end to low-end with POWER4+ technology, resulting in one of the fastest complete rollouts of 64-bit server chip technology in recent history.

"IBM is committed to delivering UNIX systems with no compromises on performance or price," said Karl Freund, vice president, IBM eServer pSeries. "Integrating POWER4+ technology into low-end eServer pSeries systems continues our trend of driving down price points while at the same time dramatically increasing performance."

IBM is committed to delivering the latest technology to customers. In only six months, IBM redefined the economics for UNIX servers--offering maximum performance at an affordable cost--by integrating POWER4+ microprocessors at the high-end with the introduction of the IBM eServer pSeries 690 and p670, at the mid-range with the eServer p655 and p650, at the low-end with the p630 and now with the new IBM eServer p615. This new IBM eServer system delivers a high-performing, low-cost, one-or two-processor, entry-level system that does not sacrifice performance, value or features.

As with all the POWER4+ servers, IBM offers support for AIX 5L, IBM's UNIX operating system, and Linux, bringing customers wide application support. According to HP, as of last month there are only about 300 applications available today running on Itanium.

Available in rack-mounted or deskside versions, the eServer p615 is a powerful and affordable entry-level system ideal for running applications such as enterprise resource planning, supply chain management, customer relationship management and business intelligence at a wide range of organizations--from small and medium size businesses to divisions of large enterprises. Customers can also cluster multiple systems together to perform dynamic and powerful applications for scientific research or data modeling.

The new IBM eServer p615 is planned to be available on May 28, 2003 in a one-way option at a starting price of $5,745.
