Lenovo ThinkSystem SD530
The Density of Blades, the Economics of Rack Systems
The ThinkSystem SD530 has a modular I/O shuttle design. This high-density server supports HPC and enterprise workloads. It provides superior storage performance and scales with an add-on tray that supports two GPUs per node. XClarity makes management easy.
The highly agile ThinkSystem SD530 is a modular 2U/4-node system that excels at both HPC and enterprise workloads—on the same platform—to increase flexibility while reducing costs.
Rise to Meet Tomorrow’s Storage Challenges
- Ultra-dense 2U, 4-node platform delivers more in less space
- Extreme compute capability, ready to adapt when you are
- Ultra-agile shuttle design, providing the modularity to transform
Ready for What's Next
Easily adjusting to new environments and different conditions has been the dictionary definition of adaptability. Now, Lenovo ThinkSystem SD530 redefines IT adaptability. SD530 is a single platform designed to excel not only at critical enterprise workload environments (such as virtualization, hyperconverged 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 could very well be the most adaptable server on Earth.
ThinkSystem SD530 consists of a modular 2U Lenovo D2 Enclosure containing up to 4 front-access SD530 servers (nodes). Each node, incorporating 2 powerful Intel® Xeon® processor Scalable family CPUs, achieves up to 56% faster performance than the previous generation. The innovative design of the D2 enclosure provides the flexibility to meet varied needs in the modern data center. 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%, compared to the previous generation, and simplifies administration.
