The x240 M5 Compute Node uses IBM TruDDR4 memory DIMM technology, which offers higher clock speeds, faster data transfer rates, and runs at a lower voltage (1.2V). With DDR4 technology, memory DIMMs can now operate at speeds up to 2133 MHz, which provides lower latency times and enhanced computing power. The TruDDR4 memory portfolio includes RDIMMs with advanced error correction for reliability, performance, and maximum memory capacity.
The x240 M5 Compute Node integrates leadership security and reliability. System x trusted platform assurance, an exclusive set of system x features and practices, establishes a foolproof security foundation for your workloads. Enterprise-class data protection is provided with optional self-encrypting drives and simple, centralized key management through IBM security key lifecycle management. Diagnostic tools facilitate reduced downtime and costs.
