The Lenovo ThinkSystem SR850 is a 4-socket server that features a streamlined 2U rack design that is optimized for price and performance, with best-in-class flexibility and expandability. The SR850 now supports second-generation Intel Xeon Scalable Family processors, up to a total of four, each with up to 28 cores. The ThinkSystem SR850’s agile design provides rapid upgrades for processors and memory, and its large, flexible storage capacity helps to keep pace with data growth.
With a dense 2U design, the Lenovo ThinkSystem SR850 provides advanced features and capabilities. These include support for up to four sockets and 48 DIMMs, mix and match internal storage, and enterprise-grade systems management with the embedded Lenovo XClarity Controller.
The SR850 has space for 16x 2.5-inch drive bays, up to 8 of which can be configured as AnyBay drives - supporting SAS, SATA or NVMe drives. NVMe drives are high-speed, low-latency storage, ideal for storage tiering. The server also offers easy expansion, with up to nine PCIe slots (two of which are x16) and up to 2 (mirrored) M.2 drives for rapid OS boot, faster than either USB keys or SD cards.
