PURPOSE BUILT EDGE SERVER FOR COMPUTE & STORAGE
Today, remote locations are forced to make a choice between underpowered IOT gateways and PCs, or overpowered and non-rugged datacenter centric servers. Now they have an option—a right-sized compact compute and storage server designed specifically to meet the needs of remote locations. The Lenovo ThinkSystem SE350 is an Intel® Xeon® D2100-based 1U height, half-width, and short-depth Edge server that can go anywhere. It can be hung on a wall, stacked on a shelf, or mounted in a rack. This rugged Edge server can handle temperatures from 0-55°C as well as tolerance to locations with high-dust and vibration. The SE350 is designed to virtualize traditional IT and OT applications as well as new transformative IOT and AI systems, providing the processing power, storage, accelerator, and networking techniques required for today’s Edge workloads.
SECURE, CONNECTED AND RELIABLE
At Lenovo, security begins with design and continues through supply chain, delivery, and the full lifecycle of the system.
The SE350 equips ThinkShield security with cybersecurity capabilities with key encrypted storage and secured bios, and physical security capabilities such as a locking bezel, intrusion and tamper protection mechanisms. The SE350 provides numerous connectivity options with wired and secure wireless Wi-Fi and LTE connection abilities. Reliability features such as wireless failover, redundant boot and data drives, high temperature components and support for hyperconverged clustering keep critical Edge workloads running.
AGILITY AND REMOTE MANAGEABILITY
It is costly and time consuming to send IT staff to remote sites. The SE350 features XClarity Controller, an enterprise-grade embedded management engine. It also supports XClarity Administrator, which enables IT managers to efficiently maintain server, storage, and networking infrastructure and accelerate services provisioning.
In addition to a dedicated wired networking management port, the SE350 can deliver management over a secure wireless connection so IT managers can perform updates, management tasks, and access sites even when the primary site internet connection is down.
