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.
