The unique modular “book” design of the x3950 X6 accommodates multiple generations of processor and memory technology in the same chassis, delivering seamless scalability and maximum performance.
DRIVES FASTER ANALYTICS ENGINES
Fast application performance means immediate access to actionable information
Agile system design provides the ability to upgrade processor and memory technology to the next generation, reducing acquisition costs significantly
Resilient platforms maximize application uptime and promote easy integration in virtual environments
As businesses continue to expand into mobile and cloud arenas, mission-critical applications—and data center infrastructure—must do more. Superior IT solutions must easily scale-up for better performance, manage large masses of data, and make that crucial actionable insight available in real-time. It's a given that the volume of data you manage continues to grow, yet you remain constrained by a finite set of capital and operational resources. The Lenovo System x3950 X6, based on the sixth generation of Enterprise X-Architecture technology, helps you efficiently deliver better, more timely business results.
X6 platforms, with Intel® Xeon® processors E7-8800 v4 series, can produce up to 26 percent faster compute performance than the last-generation of X6 systems with last-generation processors.* The X6 portfolio delivers large application virtualization and decreases infrastructure costs and complexity. Now you can design faster analytics engines, rein in IT sprawl and deliver information with high reliability. X6 mission-critical servers are fast, agile and resilient.
* 26 percent improvement based on Intel preliminary projections in confidential documents.
