The IBM® iDataPlex® Rack has the following features:
System x iDataPlex is an innovative data center solution for users of High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters, grid deployment, and large-scale cloud computing who want to reduce power, cooling, or physical space. It represents a new approach for maximum usable density in the data center through innovation at the server level, at the rack level, and at the data center level.
An iDataPlex solution is built with industry-standard components to create flexible configurations of servers, chassis, and networking switches that integrate easily. Customized solutions for your applications can be configured to meet your specific business needs for maximum compute power, hybrid CPU and GPU acceleration, storage intensity, and the right I/O and networking.
In addition to flexibility at the server level, iDataPlex offers flexibility at the rack level. The iDataPlex can be cabled either through the bottom, if it's set on a raised floor, or from the ceiling. Front-access cabling and Direct Dock Power enable you to make changes in networking, power connections, and storage quickly and easily. The rack also supports multiple networking topologies including Ethernet, InfiniBand, and Fibre Channel.
With the optional IBM Rear Door Heat eXchanger as part of an iDataPlex solution, you can have a high-density data center environment that can alleviate cooling challenges. With further adjustments, the Rear Door Heat eXchanger can help cool the room -- helping reduce the need for air conditioning in the data center.

This refurbished server is sold in excellent condition and is marked å¦?Grade Aå¦?.
Having been decommissioned from a previous work space you can expect some light cosmetic markings (scuffs and scratches) around the outer chassis. This obviously has very little effect on the robust metal case and the system has been cleaned both inside and out.
We use custom made boxes (matching the original manufacturer specification) and durable expanding foam cushioning to ensure that your product arrives safely. Take a look at our reassuring packaging process.
Our refurbished servers have been usually been removed from working environments in large corporate data centers or public sector facilities due to upgrade, lease end or bankruptcy. Every server passes through our 6-step refurbishment process which provides a complete system overhaul from our trained technicians, rebuilding every component to ensure that your machine is technically as good as new.
All refurbished servers from bargain hardware are supported by a 30-day warranty, covering all integral hardware and parts/components that affect the functionality of the equipment.
At bargain hardware we only deal with enterprise and business class hardware from the worldå¦?s leading manufacturers. Originally sold with lengthy 3-5 year warranties, the servers we sell are designed with robust architecture for the ultimate reliability.
Our standard 30 day warranty provides sufficient time to allow you to fully 'soak test' your purchase and discover any unlikely, underlying issues. We always have parts in stock and will provide favorable pricing to existing customers any time after this 30-day period.
It is well publicized that extended warranty packages are very rarely a good deal for the customer. The administrative costs involved in storing and tracking extended warranty details would increase our costs and therefore our prices. Feedback suggests that customers are more than happy with our quality and service, and would prefer us to maintain our highly competitive pricing.
For reasons detailed above, we donå¦?t presently offer any extended warranty options. This is however something which may become available in the future if our customer demands change and as our business systems expand to cater for those demands.
If you have any problems with your order you can find full contact details and instructions on our returns and refundså¦ÌÀ contact page.
