IBM continues to apply its unparalleled combination of research capabilities, technology innovation and global business partner ecosystem to develop powerful, affordable offerings that help mid-size companies solve problems and succeed in today’s environment. “These new solutions provide growing businesses with a reliable, scalable IT foundation that will help them manage information more effectively and become increasingly agile in the ways they work, access resources and support customers," said Ron Kline, IBM Global Director of Midmarket Marketing.

The latest additions to IBM’s mid-market portfolio include:

IBM System Storage DS3500 Express, which enables smart management of information and capacity growth without added complexity. By providing mid-range performance and attributes at entry level prices, the DS3500 storage system helps companies deal with ‘information explosion’ — one of the top five trends impacting an organization, according to mid-market leaders in the CEO study.

The DS3500 provides the broadest set of connectivity options available in a single storage system, allowing clients to intermix the different options to create a tiered network solution that places critical applications and data on the fastest networking technology and secondary data on the slower, less expensive technology. This tiered network solution maximizes resources and provides quick access to data, so it can be analyzed for insight that can lead to competitive advantage. The DS3500 allows users to lower power consumption by 10 percent. The total cost of acquisition for the DS3500 is up to 26 percent lower than comparable offerings from major competitors.

The IBM System x3620 M3 Express provides a powerful and affordable infrastructure alternative to traditional enterprise server offerings. Built on the latest Intel Xeon technology, the x3620 M3 server delivers the improved performance, speed, storage capabilities and scale required for today’s growing businesses. The server also helps reduce costs by providing faster processing speeds, outstanding energy efficiency, and integrated RAID adapters for more concentrated memory support and higher availability.
