Netfinity was the name for IBM’s line of Intel-based enterprise servers. This line was originally known as IBM PC Server, then Netfinity, then eServer xSeries and then the current name: IBM System x.
Mainframe computers are gradually being replaced with enterprise servers like IBM’s Netfinity, which address communication requirements and data management while meeting business-to-business (B2B), business-to-consumer (B2C) and intra-business application demands.
Other advantages of Netfinity and other enterprise servers include large memory, server clustering for increased reliability and reduced downtime, server interoperation and interapplication communication.
