The Flex System Enterprise Chassis now supports two new blades with second-generation Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable product family CPUs: the two-processor ThinkSystem SN550 and the four-processor ThinkSystem SN850. The chassis is designed for high-speed networking and multiple generations of Intel Xeon processors.
The SN550 has twice the memory of the previous generation server, larger memory footprint, and faster and larger memory capacity. It is powerful enough for most major data center workloads, for example, cloud, server virtualization, departmental databases and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), as well as for consolidating legacy servers into a single blade.
In addition, the SN550 is also compatible with your current Flex System Enterprise chassis, protecting your chassis infrastructure investment.
With Flex System, the focus is on easier combinations for your infrastructure. Together with the Lenovo XClarity Management Suite, you can assemble compute, external storage, and networking resources to meet changing workload and capacity requirements.
This extreme agility gives you entirely new design options for your resources:
Faster provisioning and movement of virtual machines for easier orchestration.
Storage flexibility, from no drive to a freely configurable mix of SAS/SATA HDDs/SSDs and U.2/NVMe
Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory - new flexible tier that delivers an unparalleled combination of high capacity, affordability, and persistence to reduce restart times, 1.2x virtual machine density, dramatically improved data replication with 14x lower latency and 14x higher IPOS, and better security for persistent data embedded in hardware.
NVMe drives for ultra-fast read/write storage, with tiering for caching and data analytics.
Choice among multiple boot devices, including dual-mirrored M.2 cards.
These technologies and features give you a highly agile blade architecture and automated control over infrastructure. This allows your staff to better focus on innovation and new challenges.
The SN550's 2-CPU, 24-DIMM slot design is perfect for memory-intensive workloads. With more storage capacity and bandwidth than ever before, workloads can meet your business needs even faster.
