Ideal for a wide range of business-critical applications, including cloud computing and virtualization. Big things do come in small packages.

Uptime for business-critical applications

With redundant and hot-swap fans, disks and power supplies, the x3550 M4 provides a resilient architecture ideal for business-critical applications. Predictive Failure Analysis and light path diagnostics proactively monitor the system’s sub-components and provide advanced warning on power supplies, fans, VRMs, disks, processors and memory. Redundant, hot-swap components make it easy to replace failures without taking your system down. Light path diagnostics displays a visible warning light indicator on a failing component, allowing time for component replacement prior to failure and facilitating high availability.
