Companies of all sizes continue to solve real-world challenges, and they require robust infrastructure solutions to gain faster insights and remain competitive. With this new generation of ThinkSystem solutions, Lenovo introduces innovations for real-world workloads, including high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI), modeling and simulation, cloud, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and advanced analytics.

The next-generation ThinkSystem servers go beyond the data center with edge-to-cloud compute, showcasing a unique balance of performance, security, and efficiency with 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors and PCIe Gen4. New high-density ThinkSystem servers are an excellent choice for analytics and AI with Lenovo Neptune Cooling technology, also built on 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors. All Systems included enhanced security with Lenovo ThinkShield and Hardware Root-of-Trust. Also, all of them are available with as-a-service economics and management thru Lenovo TruScale Infrastructure Services.

Lenovo: Infrastructure Solutions for Data-Intensive Workloads

Lenovo introduces new servers offering enhanced performance, reliability, flexibility, and security to meet mission-critical demands and customer concerns. This portfolio provides flexibility for the most demanding workloads and the freedom to configure to meet growing business demands, leveraging Intel’s 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors.

ThinkSystem SR650 V2

Ideal for scalability from SMB to large enterprises and managed cloud service providers. This 2U two-socket server is engineered for speed and expansion, with flexible storage and I/O for business-critical workloads. The ThinkSystem SR650 V2 provides Intel Optane persistent memory 200 series for increased performance and capacity for database and virtual machine deployments, supporting PCIe Gen4 networking to reduce data bottlenecks.

ThinkSystem SR630 V2

Built for business-critical versatility, this 1U two-socket server features optimized performance and density for hybrid data center workloads such as cloud, virtualization, analytics, computing, and gaming.

ThinkSystem ST650 V2

Built for performance and maximum scalability, this is a two-socket mainstream tower server that includes the industry’s latest technology in a slimmer chassis (4U). The ThinkSystem ST650 V2 addresses highly configurable tower systems that support remote offices or branch offices (ROBO), technology, and retail while optimizing workloads.

ThinkSystem SN550 V2

Designed for enterprise performance and flexibility in a compact footprint, the newest building block in the Flex System family. The ThinkSystem SN550 V2 is a blade server node designed to tackle business-critical workloads such as cloud, server virtualization, databases, and VDI.

Looking to the Edge With Lenovo & 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable

Coming later this year, Lenovo is expanding its edge computing portfolio with 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, with the introduction of a new highly ruggedized edge server. This server is designed to handle the extreme performance and environmental conditions needed for telecommunications, manufacturing, and smarter city use cases.

Packing Petaflops of Performance on Two Data Center Floor Tiles

With new performance-optimized servers, Lenovo delivers on the promise of “From Exascale to Everyscale”. The servers provide massive computing power in minimal floor space with reduced energy consumption. This new generation of ThinkSystem servers is designed to fully exploit PCIe Gen4, which doubles I/O bandwidth for network cards. Also, with NVMe devices and GPU/accelerators, this portfolio provides balanced system performance between the CPU and the I/O. Each system leverages Lenovo Neptune cooling to drive more outstanding performance and energy efficiency.

ThinkSystem SD650 V2

Based on the fourth-generation Lenovo Neptune cooling technology, this server utilizes a highly reliable copper loop and cold plate architecture removing up to 90% of the system’s heat. The ThinkSystem SD650 V2 is built to tackle compute-intensive workloads such as HPC, AI, cloud, grid, and advanced analytics.

ThinkSystem SD650-N V2

Expanding the Lenovo Neptune platform, direct water-cooling technology for GPUs, this server combines two 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors with four NVIDIA A100 GPUs to deliver maximum performance in a dense 1U package. Lenovo affirms that a rack of ThinkSystem SD650-N V2 delivers enough compute performance to place in the top 300 of the TOP500 list of supercomputers.

ThinkSystem SD630 V2

This is an ultra-dense and ultra-agile server that handles twice the workloads per server rack unit of rack space vs. traditional 1U servers. By leveraging Lenovo Neptune Thermal Transfer Modules (TTMs), the SD630 V2 supports processors up to 250W, driving 1.5 times the performance of the previous generation in the same rack space.

ThinkSystem SR670 V2

This is a highly versatile acceleration platform designed for HPC and AI training workloads, supporting the vast NVIDIA Ampere datacenter GPU portfolio. With six base configurations that support up to eight small or large form factor GPUs, the SR670 V2 allows customers the flexibility to configure PCIe or SXM form factors. One of those configurations features a Lenovo Neptune liquid-to-air heat exchanger that provides the benefits of liquid cooling without the added plumbing.

Comprehensive Approach to Security

Lenovo’s ThinkSystem and ThinkAgile portfolio includes enterprise-class security features, leveraging Lenovo ThinkShield standards. Lenovo ThinkShield is a comprehensive approach to enhancing security in all products from end-to-end, including supply chain and manufacturing processes. This enables Levono customers to be confident that they have a strong security foundation. As part of the solutions announced, Lenovo enhances ThinkShield security capabilities including:

  • New standards-compliant NIST SP800-193 Platform Firmware Resiliency (PFR) with Root of Trust (RoT) Hardware to provide key platform subsystem protection against cyberattacks, unauthorized firmware updates, and corruption.
  • Discrete security processor testing validated by leading third-party security firms – available for customer review, providing unprecedented transparency and assurance.

Lenovo customers can also count on innovation in intelligent systems management with Lenovo xClarity and Lenovo Intelligent Computing Orchestration (LiCO), to allow organizations to easily administer IT infrastructure from anywhere in the world. All of Lenovo’s infrastructure solutions are supported by Lenovo TruScale Infrastructure Services delivering as-a-service economics with cloud-like flexibility.
