After all, they utilize solutions announced months ago — IBM’s X6 in mid-January and Intel’s Xeon E7v2 a month later — which means they simply have been upgraded with the respective vendors’ latest and greatest technologies. However, such a blasé attitude would ignore the core premise and promise of the Flex System portfolio and its impact on IBM’s enterprise customers.
