  • Strong price performance for larger workloads and simplified deployment and management

 

Flex System X6 Compute Nodes “Mission Critical”

Today’s IT organizations must deliver game-changing cloud, big data and analytics capabilities. But they’re also expected to drive innovation with declining budgets. In addition, mission-critical applications are required to do more as businesses increase mobile and cloud deployments. Despite these challenges, IT solutions must be able to scale performance, manage large data and reliably make information available in real-time.

 

The Lenovo Flex System X6 Compute Node family consists of three servers from the Lenovo Flex System portfolio. The Lenovo Flex System x280 X6 is a two-socket scale-out server optimized for workloads that require large memory footprint and virtualization performance. The Lenovo Flex System x480 X6 is scalable to a 4-socket system optimized for applications that require more processor cores and memory for larger virtual machines and databases. The Lenovo Flex System x880 X6, the first scalable 8-socket blade server featuring powerful Intel® Xeon® processors E7-8800 v3 series, is ideal for workloads that demand the highest levels of capacity, performance, and resiliency, such as analytics and large databases.
