The Lenovo Flex System Enterprise Chassis now supports two new blades, incorporating powerful Intel® Xeon® processor Scalable family CPUs: the four-processor Lenovo ThinkSystem SN850 and the two-processor Lenovo ThinkSystem SN550. The chassis was engineered to support high-speed networking and multiple generations of Intel Xeon processors.
SN850 offers massively increased memory capacity and bandwidth, more processor cores, faster and larger storage capacity, plus enhanced RAS and security features**. As a result, SN850’s four-CPU, 48 DIMM-slot design is powerful enough for even your most demanding memory-intensive workloads. Examples include in-memory databases, batch and real-time analytics, virtualization, large traditional databases, distributed computing, or consolidating multiple past generation servers onto a single blade. In addition, SN850 is also compatible with your current Flex System Enterprise chassis, protecting your investment in chassis infrastructure.
