FUTURE DEFINED DATA CENTER
Lenovo delivers cost-effective, reliable, and scalable solutions by combining industry-leading technology and the world’s best software-defined offerings with Lenovo ThinkShield, XClarity, and TruScale Infrastructure Services to manage the life cycle of your data center needs. ThinkSystem SR650 provides support for data analytics, hybrid cloud, hyperconverged infrastructure, video surveillance, high performance computing and much more.
Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory delivers a new, flexible tier of memory designed specifically for data center workloads that offer an unprecedented combination of high capacity, affordability, and persistence. This technology will have a significant impact on real-world data center operations: reduction of restart times from minutes down to seconds, 1.2x virtual machine density, dramatically improved data replication with 14x lower latency and 14x higher IOPS, and greater security for persistent data built into hardware.*
Lenovo AnyBay design features a choice of drive interface type in the same drive bay: SAS drives, SATA drives, or U.2 NVMe PCIe drives. Freedom to configure some of the bays with PCIe SSDs and still use the remaining bays for capacity SAS drives provides the ability to upgrade to more PCIe SSDs in the future as needed.
EMPOWERING IT MANAGEMENT
Lenovo XClarity Controller is the embedded management engine in all ThinkSystem servers that is designed to standardize, simplify, and automate foundation server management tasks. Lenovo XClarity Administrator is a virtualized application that centrally manages ThinkSystem servers, storage, and networking, which can reduce provisioning time up to 95% versus manual operation. Running XClarity Integrator helps you streamline IT management, speed provisioning, and contain costs by seamlessly integrating XClarity into an existing IT environment.
FOR COMPUTE-INTENSIVE WORKLOADS
For medium to large enterprises, and managed and cloud service providers, Lenovo ThinkSystem SR650 is the optimum 2U, two-socket server—the most widely used server type worldwide. It’s engineered to deliver high performance with 205W CPUs, low-latency NVMe drives, and high-power GPUs.
With Lenovo’s history of reliability, the highly flexible and configurable SR650 is the ideal platform for hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) or software-defined storage (SDS). It provides a solid foundation for: 1) transforming physical resources into services, using validated designs for hybrid cloud; 2) performing analytics on streaming data, using validated designs for Big Data; and 3) increasing productivity of virtualized transactional systems, using validated designs for OLTP databases.
VERSATILE AND SCALABLE
ThinkSystem SR650 supports Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory and up to two next-generation Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable family CPUs, with up to 36% total performance improvement compared to the previous generation.* It supports two 300W high-performance GPUs and ML2 NIC adapters with shared management. Unique Lenovo AnyBay technology provides the flexibility to mix-and-match SAS/SATA HDDs/SSDs and NVMe SSDs in the same drive bays. Support is now available for up to 24 NVMe drives.
Four direct-connect NVMe ports on the motherboard provide ultra-fast read/writes with NVMe drives and reduce costs by eliminating PCIe switch adapters.
Plus, storage can be tiered for greater application performance, to provide the most cost-effective solution. Optional mirrored M.2 drives ensure reliability and quick OS initialization. SR650 also features 80 PLUS Platinum and Titanium PSUs, as well as continuous operation at 45°C, to reduce energy costs.
SECURE AND EASILY MANAGED
Lenovo ThinkShield is a comprehensive end-to-end approach to security that begins with development and continues through supply chain and the full life cycle of the device.
Lenovo XClarity Controller features an uncluttered graphical user interface, industry standard Redfish-compliant REST APIs, and enables booting in half the time of prior generation servers, with up to 6x faster firmware updates. Lenovo XClarity Administrator is a virtualized application that centrally manages ThinkSystem servers, storage, and networking. Via reusable patterns and policies, it ramps up and scales infrastructure provisioning and maintenance. It serves as a central integration point to extend your data center management processes to physical IT.
Running XClarity Integrators in external IT applications, or integrating through REST APIs, helps you further speed services provisioning, streamline IT management, and contain costs.
Lenovo servers continue to be the industry’s #1 most reliable†, with the industry’s highest customer satisfaction‡ rating.
