Icecat the open catalog

Add to compare
The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product family:
The product family is a generic trademark of a brand to indicate a very wide range of products, that can encompass multiple categories. We include product family in the Icecat product title.
Product series:
Product series is a brand's indication, often indicated by round numbers like 3000, that identifies a group of products within one category that are technically very similar. We don't include product serie in the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet to avoid confusion.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
System x3250
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
Extra powerful, extra reliable computers that have been specially designed for server applications. For example serving a website, a large database or shared storage space to a lot of users. Servers are often not very quiet and deliver hardly any graphical performance, which makes them not suitable for use as personal computer. If you need a lot of servers, choose a rack mountable model. Those models need less space and your server room will remain tidy.
Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the product data-sheet can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by IBM: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

Marketing text IBM eServer System x3250

The official marketing text of IBM eServer System x3250 as supplied by the manufacturer
The IBM System x3250 is a single-socket server that is easy to deploy, manage and service. It provides outstanding performance and reliability at an entry-level price.

Simplified computing

The x3250 provides remote monitoring and alerting capabilities that provide strong systems management. In addition:

- Simple-swap and hot-swap hard disk drives (HDDs) offer easy serviceability without removing the system from the rack
- Optional upgrade to the Remote Supervisor Adapter II SlimLine for remote management even when the server is powered down
- Integrated hardware RAID-0 or RAID-1 without using a slot (select models)
- Rack-optimized, 1U form factor with the ability to support four 2.5" SAS HDDs

Performance, protection at entry-level price

Designed for high-performance, dual-core 64-bit processors, the x3250 can optimize performance of your Web and network infrastructure. For a performance boost, choose models with Intel® Xeon® or Intel Pentium® D processors, while those running less demanding applications may prefer the Intel Celeron® processor.

Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) HDDs and PCI-Express ensure even greater integrated I/O performance and compatibility with next-generation devices for added long-term investment protection.

Processor frequency*
The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.
3 GHz
Processor family*
A family of processors is a group of processors produced by one company over a short period of time e.g. Intel Pentium processors.
Intel® Pentium® D
Number of processors installed*
Number of processors in the product.
Processor cache type

Maximum number of SMP processors
Total storage capacity*
The total amount of data that can be stored on the device.

RAID levels
RAID is a storage technology that combines multiple disk drive components into a logical unit for the purposes of data redundancy and performance improvement. Data is distributed across the drives in one of several ways, referred to as RAID levels, depending on the specific level of redundancy and performance required.
Internal memory*
A computer's memory which is directly accessible to the CPU.
