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, using today’s fastest Intel processors, offers the optimal amount of memory and storage to deliver high performance and scalability at a low cost.
