Designed for rack environments that require peak two-socket performance and sizeable memory capacity, the Lenovo ThinkSystem SR590 can tackle cloud and Big Data environments for medium and large enterprises. The SR590 is a balanced, midrange rack server that also works well for small-scale virtualization, collaboration and productivity applications, as well as caching and logging.
Two Intel® Xeon® Scalable Family processors increase agility and manage data-rich, high-demand workloads with up to a 1.5x memory bandwidth increase over the previous generation. Combined with up to 1TB of memory capacity, this enables applications to run faster and more efficiently and boosts business performance at a lower cost and higher overall value.
The SR590 supports up to 16 hot-swap 2.5” or 14 hot-swap or simple-swap 3.5” drive bays. Up to four of the 2.5” or 3.5” bays can be AnyBay, capable of supporting not only SAS/ SATA drives, but also direct -connect NVMe drives (which bypass the SAS bus) for the ultimate in storage performance. In addition, the SR590 supports SAS and SATA HDDs and SSDs with up to 12Gb SAS throughput, as well as up to two M.2 drives for faster, more secure OS boot. The SR590 provides storage flexibility, NIC expansion in multiple form factors, including LOM, ML2, and PCIe, and replaceable I/O riser cards for varied adapter slot configurations.
Lenovo servers have been the most reliable in the industry for several years. They were ranked #1 yet again in the latest ITIC survey of x86 server reliability*. The SR590 is no exception, including many features that contribute to the reliability and security of the server and your all-important data.
These features result in an ideal server for proxy caching, cloud, CRM, security, virtualization, media streaming, Big Data, databases, database-driven Web serving, mail serving, and many other workloads.
