Lenovo ThinkServer SD350
The Lenovo ThinkServer sd350 is a 2U 4-node platform that provides an ultra-dense hyperconverged platform that easily scales for SDDC. With ThinkServer sd350, companies can achieve a tiny footprint in a distributed enterprise. This solution is perfect for infrastructure workloads because it offers tremendous and flexible storage capacity.
Up to 4 ThinkServer sd350 compute nodes in each compact 2U n400 enclosure deliver a dense, scalable platform for distributed enterprise and hyperconverged solutions.
Powerful and Efficient
- Extreme density (0.5U per server)
- Incorporates the latest Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 processor v4 series, providing blazing speed with up to 20 cores and 50MB of L3 cache
- Optimized for Cloud, the sd350 provides capacity for up to 2TB of RDIMM memory per enclosure
- Fast I/O—including 40Gb FC support, 10GbE, PCIe 3.0 and USB 3.0—adds to overall performance
- Energy Star 2.0-compliant power supplies, low-voltage RDIMM memory, and energy-efficient processors (85-90W) contribute to lower TCO
- Plenty of flexible storage capacity, including up to 48TB of SATA storage, 24TB of SAS, 28.8TB of SAS, or 11.5TB of SSD per n400 Enclosure. HDDs and SSDs can be mixed within an enclosure.X6 mission-critical servers are fast, agile, and resilient.
In this era of the software-defined data center, customers are looking for platforms with greater density and easier scalability along with better economics. Density, to get as much compute power per square foot as possible; scalability to accommodate the tsunami of data created every day; better economics, because budgets have been flat forever. Enter the 2U four-node system (2U4N).
2U4N systems have gained popularity in a variety of data centers, from large enterprises to service providers, because their small footprint and inherent density make them ideal for building solution-based appliances at a low cost. They are also a great fit for distributed enterprises with remote offices because of their compact size and ease of serviceability. The combination of the Lenovo ThinkServer SD350 and n400 Enclosure is built to deliver these types of solutions.
Optimized for distributed enterprise, hyperconverged, and infrastructure solutions, the sd350 uses today’s fastest Intel processors to offer the optimal amount of memory and storage to deliver high performance and scalability at a low cost.
This dense offering fits 4 hot-pluggable sd350 servers into an n400 enclosure that takes up only 2U (0.5U per server) and includes room for plenty of internal storage. The overall design makes the solution extremely affordable with a low total cost of ownership (TCO).
Incorporating the latest technologies, the sd350 offers the new Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 processors v4 series (up to 135W, 20 cores), up to 512GB RDIMM memory, and a choice of solid state drives (SSDs) and 15,000rpm hard disk drives for blazingly fast performance.
Fast processing demands fast I/O, so the sd350 also provides three PCIe 3.0 adapter slots, two USB 3.0 ports, and support for 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE). One dual-port 10GbE controller per server equals 80Gbps total throughput per 2U of rack space. Fourteen Data Rate (FDR) 40Gb InfiniBand (ConnectX-3) is also supported.
The n400 enclosure supports up to 24 2.5-inch HDDs or SSDs (6 drives per sd350), which you can mix as needed. There is plenty of flexibility in HDD performance and capacity per n400 enclosure, with up to 48TB of internal near-line 7,200rpm SATA, 24TB of 7,200rpm SAS, 28.8TB of 10,000rpm SAS, or 14.4TB of 15,000rpm SAS HDDs.
With support for up to 11.5TB of enterprise standard SATA SSDs, or 9.6TB of enterprise SAS SSDs as well, storage flexibility and performance skyrockets. Standard software RAID 0/1/10/5 and optional hardware RAID 0/1/10 support increases the reliability/availability of your storage.
