Little server, heal thyself

IBM today launched a range of Intel-based servers designed to relieve reliability and manageability headaches for small businesses.

The IBM eServer x205 integrates IBM's Project eLiza technologies which help IT managers predict and repair potential problems without taking the server offline or shutting it down. IBM Director, an intelligent system management program containing eLiza technology, is also available on the x205. Support for either Linux or Windows comes as standard.

According to IBM, the eServer x205 contains higher-end features previously unavailable on lower range servers.

Designed to exceed the performance-level needs of the SMB market, the Pentium 4 eServer x205 offers hot swap hard disk drive models, as well as support for the IBM Remote Supervisor Adapter (RSA) for complete system control.

RSA is useful for small businesses and large enterprises with multi-location offices where remote management features are important.

The eServer x205 is available on August 30, 2002, through resellers and directly through ibm.com, at prices starting at $1049. ®
