IBM launches self-healing eServers

IBM is aiming to provide high-availability power to SMEs and corporations with the launch of a range of servers with self-healing capabilities.

Featuring the Intel Pentium III-S processor, the x232, x330 and x342 eServers incorporate self-diagnosing and self-healing technologies from IBM's Project eLiza initiative, an ongoing scheme to create self-managing systems.

The servers feature Project eLiza technologies, including predictive failure analysis and software rejuvenation. Predictive failure analysis enables a server to self-diagnose any potential problem prior to alerting IT staff in order to avoid a potential server crash. Software rejuvenation automatically predicts and repairs software problems before they occur.

"The x232 is the next version of our x230 server and is aimed at the general mid-market business market, while the x330 and x342 models are upgrades of two of our rack-optimised models, and are again aimed at the GMB market" said Tony John, the eServer xSeries brand manager at IBM.

Jeff Benck, the product marketing director for the IBM eSever xSeries, added: "The increased processing power, combined with the benefits of Project eLiza technologies, will allow customers to streamline the management of their networks."
