Used IBM x3850 X5 (2) E7-4870 2.4GHz CPU 16GB RAM (2)x 300GB HDD (2)x 1975W PSU Server Bundle

The x3850 X5 server is the fifth generation of the Enterprise X-Architecture, delivering innovation with enhanced reliability and availability features to enable optimal performance for databases, enterprise applications, and virtualized environments. Environments that run around the clock to supply information world-wide require dependable servers with features that can tolerate a component failure without total shutdown.

The x3850 X5 server packs numerous fault-tolerant and high-availability features into a high-density, rack-optimized package that helps to significantly reduce the space needed to support massive network computing operations. A single x3850 X5 supports up to four of Intel's high-performance 10-core processors and up to 3 TB of memory. Two x3850 X5 servers can be connected together to form a single-system image with up to eight processors and up to 6 TB of RAM. This processing capacity is ideal for large-scale database or virtualization requirements.
