IBM Launches New Workstations

IBM announced a new rackmounted workstation and flat-panel monitor that help free up space and reduce energy and maintenance costs in the working environment of financial trading floors. The new solution moves workstations from traders’ desks to a back room where up to 42 pizza-box-shaped systems can be stacked in a six foot (42U) rack.

The solution includes the new IntelliStation R Pro remote trader workstation,a 1U rackmounted computer targeted at financial institutions. The machines are run on one or two Pentium III processors and feature up to 4 GB of SDRAM. The system can also run industry-standard financial trading room applications. The workstations are stacked vertically in a central computer room, eliminating the tangle of cables in the workspace.
