LeaseWeb teams up with IBM to Expand its Dedicated Server Portfolio for Global Customers
LeaseWeb, one of Europe’s largest hosting providers, announced today that it reached an agreement with IBM to further expand its portfolio of dedicated servers.
The agreement integrates IBM System x3630 M3 servers with LeaseWeb’s existing dedicated server portfolio. With these additions LeaseWeb gains storage-rich dual-socket 2U servers that integrate the advanced features of traditional enterprise server offerings with affordable components, to deliver outstanding value to cost-conscious buyers.
The IBM System x3630 M3 will help LeaseWeb to meet growing performance and storage demands from customers, with a cost-effective, high-capacity dedicated server solution. The flexible design of the IBM servers provides extensive configuration options and allows LeaseWeb’s customers to upgrade to more robust features as needs change over time. The performance, reliability and delivery speed of IBM’s System x3630 M3 servers were key reasons for adding IBM to LeaseWeb’s preferred list of hardware vendors.
Ruud Mous, Commercial Director, LeaseWeb, commented, “LeaseWeb offers a level of flexibility unmatched in the hosting industry. We host a broad range of technologies from a mix of vendors that include servers, networking equipment, storage environments and operating systems. This extension to LeaseWeb’s existing range of server products further proves we are going above and beyond to listen and respond to growing customer demand.”
