Lenovo has launched two new server platforms designed specifically for edge and data-intensive workloads. It concerns the ThinkSystem SR635 and SR655. The platforms offer the performance of a dual-socket server with the cost of a single-socket, according to the provider of network infrastructure products.

The devices are designed to help customers handle complex and data-intensive workloads, said Chief Operation Officer and Senior Vice President of Business Units Doug Fisher. In addition, they can do more with less and yet offer uncompromising end-to-end security.

The ThinkSystem SR635 and SR655 server platforms allow customers to perform more workloads on fewer servers. In addition, they offer up to 73 percent savings on potential software licenses, allowing users to pick up new workloads more efficiently.

In addition, it must be possible to reduce the total cost of ownership by a maximum of 46%. According to Lenovo, the SR635 and SR655 offer more throughput, lower latency, higher core density and the largest NVMe storage capacity for a single-socket server.

AMD

The new ThinkSystems include a next generation AMD EPYC 7002 series processor, specifically designed to handle the changing, data-intensive workloads of customers. These include applications such as video security, software-defined storage and network intelligence.

AMD’s new EPYC processors were announced earlier this week. The processors contain up to 64 Zen 2-cores which should reduce the total cost of ownership by up to 50 percent for many data center workloads. The chipsets also offer up to 23 percent more clock speed for server workloads.

According to Lenovo, the processor supports the activation of additional hyperconverged infrastructure solutions. This allows the company to offer its customers applications such as vSAN, other certified nodes, for easy implementation, management and scalability.
