Lenovo today announced 1U single-processor System x3250 M6 rack server — featuring the latest Intel Xeon series processors — and refreshed servers for enterprises.
The refreshed servers include the two-socket 2U System x3650 M5, System x3550 M5, ThinkServer RD450, RD350, ThinkServer TD350, Flex x240 M5, NeXtScale nx360 M5.
Lenovo said the new servers, software, and solutions will help businesses gain insights, simplify IT management, reduce TCO and maximize uptime.
Earlier today, HPE, which competes with IBM and Lenovo, also introduced its HPE ProLiant Gen9 servers for enterprises.
The new 1U single-processor System x3250 M6 rack server, based on the Intel Xeon E3-1200 v5 series processors, is designed to support infrastructure workloads such as email, file and print, as well as Retail Point of Sale, and remote office applications, said Lenovo.
Lenovo said these servers deliver up to 44 percent greater CPU performance, 22 percent more cores, 12 percent faster memory, up to 23 percent faster Hadoop performance, and up to 30 percent faster data encryption than the previous generation.
Lenovo’s data center offerings include one- and two-socket rack and tower servers, integrated blade systems, dense High Performance Computing (HPC) systems, systems management software, and solutions in partnership with ISVs (independent software vendors).
The Chinese networking company said XClarity, available on dual-processor servers, simplifies systems management with automated discovery, monitoring, configuration, updating, and power usage optimization. Lenovo said XClarity reduces deployment steps by 75 percent, and deployment time from 60 minutes for non-managed systems to six minutes.
“Lenovo servers deliver faster performance than any competitor across virtualization, database, HPC, and high frequency trading workloads. These speed gains, combined with enhancements to our resource management tool Lenovo XClarity, enable customers not only to accelerate their system performance but also reduce their deployment and management time,” Madhu Matta, vice president of server, storage and solutions, Lenovo Data Center Group.
