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 softwaredefined 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 highperformance 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 Redfishcompliant 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.
