Many of the new PowerEdge servers will become available on Monday, though Dell declined to immediately provide pricing. The M820 blade will be available in summer, and Dell declined to provide a specific date.
IBM announced the four-socket System x3750 rack server, which has the E5-4600 processors and is designed to handle intensive database and analytics workloads.
The new IBM BladeCenter HS23E entry-level blade server based on the new Intel chips can be deployed in a matter of minutes, IBM said. Other new server offerings include the FlexSystem x220, an entry-level server for virtualization, email and collaboration. The FlexSystem plugs into the company's larger offering of PureSystem preconfigured servers, which was unveiled last month.
The BladeCenter HS23E and the System x3750 become available on June 4 and July 12 respectively, IBM said. Pricing for the servers was not immediately available .
