These powerful new solutions improve performance and speed deployment of demanding workloads such as cloud, database, ERP, virtualization, and business analytics. "The rapid pace of change in today's enterprise data center environment is stressing infrastructure technologies and IT budgets," said Darrel Ward, vice president, Enterprise Marketing and Storage Business Unit. "Lenovo's new X6 servers provide the performance, agility, and resiliency needed for mission-critical applications, while simultaneously providing your business with the advantage to win in an extremely competitive environment." Lenovo X6 Rack Servers - Modular 'Book' Architecture Lenovo's high-performance X6 rack servers, the four-socket Lenovo System x3850 X6 and the eight-socket Lenovo System x3950 X6, feature an award-winning modular design. This highly-flexible design allows for the easy swap-out of Compute Books to accommodate next-generation processors, reducing acquisition costs and eliminating the need to purchase a new server. In addition, this innovative modular architecture allows IT shops to easily upgrade other key components, such as storage, full-height and half-height I/O cards, as well as fans and power supplies, without the cost and disruption of replacing complete systems. This groundbreaking system design also allows for multiple generations of processor technologies to be used in the same chassis. Armed with the future Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4800 v3 product family, these servers deliver new levels of performance and seamless upgradability, as well as over 50 percent greater performance 1 than previous-generation systems. With support for DDR4 memory, the latest memory technology, and up to 192 DIMM slots, these systems can power the most memory-intensive workloads, including demanding database and analytics. Advanced reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features, such as Memory Page Retrieve, Consumed Error Recovery, and Upward Integration Modules, reduce support costs and increase system uptime. Lenovo Flex System X6 - Scalable Compute Nodes Lenovo Flex System X6 Compute Nodes, including the Flex System x480 X6, which is scalable to a four-socket system, and the Flex System x880 X6,the first scalable eight-socket Intel Xeon processor-based blade server, offer customers industry-leading performance in a highly-flexible, converged blade architecture designed to grow with your environment. Featuring the future Intel Xeon processor E7-8800/4800 v3 product families, each equipped with up to 144 cores, these enhanced compute nodes deliver faster application performance for workloads that require the highest levels of performance, memory capacity and high resiliency, such as mission-critical databases (both In-Memory and Traditional RDBMS) and analytics. "We developed the Intel Xeon processor E7 v3 family to deliver the performance, advanced reliability and scalability to meet the demands of enterprise computing and the growth in real-time analytics" said Lisa Spelman, marketing general manager, Intel Data Center Group.
