High-Density Servers: More Compute Power in Less Space
Lenovo dense systems deliver massive computing power in minimal space to tackle workloads like High-Performance Computing (HPC), Artificial Intelligence (AI), cloud, grid, and analytics.
Lenovo ThinkSystem SD530 & D2 Enclosure
SD530 is a single platform designed to excel not only at critical enterprise workload environments (such as virtualization, hyper-converged infrastructure, and cloud) but also at high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI). Combining the efficiency and density of blades with the value and simplicity of rack-based servers, SD530 is extremely adaptable. It is also very flexible, which is achieved through the innovative design of the D2 enclosure. For example:
- Multiple D2 Enclosures can be easily daisy-chained together and then managed as a single unit, which reduces cabling costs by as much as 92 percent, compared to the previous generation, and simplifies administration.
- The D2 Enclosure can accept an optional 1U tray that supports two GPUs or accelerators per node (two trays max per D2 Enclosure
- The front of the unit holds up to four nodes that are “warm-swappable” to maximize uptime. Individual nodes can be removed without powering down the remaining three nodes.
The ThinkSystem SD530 redefines IT adaptability.
Lenovo ThinkSystem SD650
The Lenovo ThinkSystem SD650 dual-node tray is designed for High Performance Computing (HPC), large-scale cloud, heavy simulations and modeling. It supports Lenovo Neptune Direct to Node (DTN) technology as well as workloads from technical computing to grid deployments to analytics, and is ideally suited for fields such as research, life sciences, energy, simulation, and engineering. The SD650 provides easy serviceability and extreme density that is well suited for clusters—ranging from small enterprises to the world’s largest supercomputers.
The ThinkSystem SD650 server and n1200 DWC enclosure with direct water cooling provide the ultimate in data center cooling efficiencies and performance. You can obtain upwards of 40% energy savings in data center expenses with the reduced need for air conditioning and air chillers. Direct water cooling means that the processors installed in the servers can enable the Intel Turbo Boost performance feature more often to further increase processor performance. The direct water cooled solution is designed to operate by using warm water, up to 50°C (122°F). Chillers are not needed for most customers, meaning even greater savings and a lower total cost of ownership.
The unique ThinkSystem SD650 design provides the optimal balance of serviceability, performance, and efficiency.
