Lenovo ThinkSystem Servers

Lenovo designs ThinkSystem servers to deliver the capabilities you need to exceed today's needs while preparing you for the next wave of innovation: Cloud, Software-Defined Environments, Artificial Intelligence, and Analytics & Decision Support. These servers incorporate Intel® Xeon® Scalable Family processors to enable critical business workloads and applications and are offered in rack, blade, edge, and high-density configurations. Intel Xeon Scalable processors' design provides a significant improvement in performance, advanced reliability, scalability, and hardware-enhanced security. Enhancements include higher per-core performance, greater memory bandwidth, expanded I/O, and improved security.

The Lenovo ThinkSystem SR860 V2 is the latest 4-socket server that offers technology advances, including a third-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor with support for Intel® Optane™ Persistent Memory 200 Series. This server is purpose-built to deliver affordable scalability in an industry-standard x86 platform, ideal for mission-critical workloads such as SAP HANA* in-memory computing, transactional databases, analytics, big data, and enterprise resource planning tasks.

The powerful 4U Lenovo ThinkSystem SR950 can grow from two to eight second-generation Intel Xeon Processor Scalable family CPUs. Lenovo designed this server for your most demanding, mission-critical workloads, such as in-memory databases, large transactional databases, batch, real-time analytics, ERP, CRM, and virtualized server workloads.

The high CPU dense ThinkSystem SR850 V2 featuring up to four 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable CPUs in just 2U of rack space provides efficient use of data center space. Additionally, numerous configuration options including the ability to expand internal storage capabilities, varied I/O connectivity options, and support for Intel® Optane™ Persistent Memory 200 Series suits a wide range of enterprise applications.

The Lenovo ThinkSystem SR650 V2 server is a 2U, two-socket multi-purpose server with the right balance of reliability, performance, and scalability optimized for data-intensive workload acceleration. Expand and optimize application performance with support for two 3rd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, Intel Optane persistent memory 200 series modules, up to 8 high-powered GPUs, and up to 32 NVMe drives.

The Lenovo ThinkSystem SR650 is the optimum 2U, two-socket server that supports up to two 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Processor Scalable family CPUs with Intel Optane persistent memory 100 Series, is the ideal platform for hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) or software-defined storage (SDS).

The Lenovo ThinkSystem SR630 V2 is the versatile, highly reliable 1U, two-socket server that supports up to two 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Processor Scalable family CPUs with Intel Optane persistent memory 200 Series, rack server designed to handle hybrid data center workloads, from IT infrastructure and HPC to cloud and hyperconverged.

The Lenovo ThinkSystem SN850 has four processors and incorporates the powerful second-generation Intel Xeon Processor Scalable family CPUs. This server offers a massively increased memory capacity and bandwidth, more processor cores, faster and larger storage capacity, plus enhanced RAS and security features. Further, it provides support for Intel Optane DC persistent memory 100 Series. This server is powerful enough for even your most demanding memory-intensive workloads.

The Lenovo ThinkSystem SN550 is a two-processor blade server with second-generation Intel Xeon Processor Scalable family CPUs. This server is powerful enough for most key data center workloads, such as cloud, server virtualization, departmental databases, and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), consolidating older servers onto a single blade, and offering support for Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory.

Built for standard workloads like general business applications and server consolidation is the Lenovo ThinkSystem SR850 . This server can scale from two to four powerful second-generation Intel Xeon Processor Scalable family CPUs and can also accommodate high-growth areas such as databases and virtualization.

The Lenovo ThinkSystem SD530 is a single platform designed to excel not only at critical enterprise workload environments (such as virtualization, hyper-converged infrastructure, and cloud) but also at High Performance Computing (HPC) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Combining the efficiency and density of blades with the value and simplicity of rack-based servers, SD530 could very well be the most adaptable server on Earth. It consists of a modular 2U Lenovo D2 Enclosure containing up to four front-access SD530 servers (nodes). Each node incorporates two second-generation Intel Xeon Processor Scalable family CPUs.
