Lenovo launches Epyc-based ThinkSystem Servers powered by AMD
The new ThinkSystem SR645 and SR665 two-socket server platforms feature powerful AMD EPYC performance and I/O connectivity
Lenovo Data Center Group (DCG) has expanded its server portfolio with the addition of two single-socket servers, ThinkSystem SR645 and SR665 powered by AMD EPYC 7002 Series processors. The company aims to offer customers higher performance workloads and improve efficiency by introducing servers with more CPU cores and a larger memory footprint.
“Our new Lenovo ThinkSystem servers are designed for workloads such as in-memory databases, advanced analytics, virtualisation, and AI,” said Kamran Amini, vice president and general manager of Server, Storage and Software Defined Infrastructure, Lenovo Data Center Group. “With the exceptional power, speed and onboard storage of these new servers, our customers have the ability to handle the increasing data requirements of today’s workloads with the scalability to grow with their business.”
The new servers feature PCIe 4 support, which doubles I/O bandwidth eliminating potential bottlenecks found in previous generation servers increase networking capabilities essential for I/O intensive applications.
With increased GPU support (up to 8x 75W NVidia T4sTM) customers will be able to implement video analytics and inference solutions for artificial intelligence. The single-socket servers also feature increased onboard storage up to 40 2.5” drives or up to 32 NVMe drives allowing for dense software defined storage solutions.
All products are secured by Lenovo ThinkShield and available through Lenovo TruScale, the pay-for-what-you-use data centre.
