IBM is rolling out a new line of secure Unix servers designed for the mid-sized business market.

The Express servers are based on the IBM Power5 microprocessor and are priced between $3,993-$7,050.

“We are providing mid-market customers something they have never had before — power and flexibility at their fingertips that allow them to grow their businesses without significantly taxing their smaller IT staffs and budgets,” said Karl Freund, vice president of product marketing, IBM Systems and Technology Group. “The introduction of these Express systems provides further example of the performance and affordability possible with Power5 technology.”
