Flexible to grow with your business
SR550 offers numerous features to increase performance and flexibility. It features two Intel® Xeon® Scalable family CPUs, with 43 percent more cores, faster memory, increased I/O, and more storage capacity than the previous generation*. SR550 is available with up to 120TB of storage, a 50 percent increase. Software and hardware RAID with simple-swap hard drives make it easy to manage storage needs. SR550 also supports two internal M.2 boot drives, freeing up the other drive bays for additional storage capacity. Front USB 3.0 ports and optional front VGA simplify deployment and servicing. Plus, up to six PCIe adapter slots and several choices of optional 1GbE/10GbE LOM and NICs, 80 PLUS Platinum and Titanium PSUs, and continuous operation at 45°C, provide additional flexibility and cost savings.
* Compared to the prior-generation Lenovo ThinkServer RD450
Lenovo XClarity Controller is an all-new hardware embedded management engine common in every ThinkSystem server. XClarity Controller features an uncluttered graphical user interface, industry standard Redfish-compliant REST APIs, and enables booting in half the time of prior generation servers, with up to 6x faster firmware updates.
Lenovo XClarity Administrator is a virtualized application that centrally manages ThinkSystem servers, storage, and networking. Via reusable patterns and policies, it ramps up and scales infrastructure provisioning and maintenance. It serves as a central integration point to extend your data center management processes to physical IT. Running XClarity Integrators in external IT applications, or integrating through REST APIs, helps you further speed services provisioning, streamline IT management, and contain costs.
