Product Details

Lenovo® Flex System™ x240 M5 Compute Node brings security, efficiency, and reliability features to handle business-critical workloads to work within your Lenovo Flex System.

The Flex System x240 M5 supports up to two Intel® Xeon® processors E5-2600 v3 series, available with as many as 18 cores, each running at up to 2133 MHz designed to deliver improved performance without sacrificing energy efficiency. This family of processors features up to 45 MB L3 cache per socket, integrated PCIe 3.0, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, Hyper-Threading Technology and two QuickPath interconnects.

The 2-socket Flex System x240 M5 Compute Node delivers major advances in performance, capacity, management simplicity, and networking flexibility to help you keep operating costs down without sacrificing efficiency, reliability or security. For work - loads that require a balance of memory, processor and I/O bandwidth, the variety of Flex System x240 M5 models gives you the flexibility to optimize each resource to adapt to meet your workload’s price/performance ratio target.

The Flex System x240 M5 Compute Node is now supported by Lenovo XClarity™, a new centralized systems management solution that helps administrators deliver infrastructure faster and with less effort. This solution integrates easily into Lenovo System x M5 and X6 rack servers and the Flex System, providing automated discovery, monitoring, firmware updates, configuration management, and bare metal deployment of operating systems and hypervisors across multiple systems

The x240 M5 is designed to help:

  • Provide power savings using improved thermal and cooling design and more efficient components
  • Boost cloud performance with greater VM density and low latency flash storage
  • Reduce unplanned downtime by delivering better uptime
  • Safeguard enterprise data with built-in System x® Trusted Platform Assurance to mitigate attacks against boot firmware and management controllers

Features:

  • Reduces operating costs with new energy-efficient Intel Xeon E5-2600v3 processors and 50 percent more cores and cache than the previous generation
  • Two-socket memory capacity, featuring TruDDR4™ memory with up to 1.5 TB allowing for more VDI users or VMs per node
  • Deploys new power for virtualization, performance and networking flexibility
  • Ideal platform for those migrating from BladeCenter® HS23 and competitive blade systems
