Lenovo ThinkSystem Servers: 88 Performance World Records

Lenovo ThinkSystem Servers are the first range of servers designed by Lenovo.  The new range of ThinkSystem Servers have been completely redesigned so you now have common components across the range i.e. power supplies, drives, trays etc.  In the past each IBM/Lenovo server had different drive part numbers for the same drive!  By introducing common parts across the entire range now makes support and maintenance far easier with less complexity.

Lenovo ThinkSystem Servers

The Lenovo ThinkSystem servers currently hold 88 Performance World Records as of November 8, 2017. These World Records are in the areas of Business Processing, Big Data Analytics, Infrastructure Virtualization, Server Side Java and General and Technical Computing.

46 of these are new #1 benchmarks and 42 are maintained as #1 benchmarks.

These world-record benchmark results with the ThinkSystem SR950 and SR650 rack servers, shown below, as well as the ThinkSystem SD530 dense server, SR630 and SR850 rack servers, and the SN550 blade server. All ThinkSystem servers are based on the Intel Xeon Scalable Family of processors.

Business Processing
