Lenovo ThinkSystem SR665 Key Features

  • World renowned for server reliability 1st 7 years in a row!
  • Support for up to 4TB of system memory
  • Supports up to eight single-width GPUs or three double-wide GPUs, for substantial processing power in a 2U system.
  • 40x 2.5-inch hot-swap drive bays, by using combinations of front-accessible (up to 24 bays), mid bays (8 bays) and rear-accessible (8 bays).
  • 20x 3.5-inch drive bays for lower-cost high-capacity HDD storage. 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drive bays can be mixed if desired.
  • Supports 16x NVMe drives without oversubscription of PCIe lanes (1:1 connectivity), or up to 32 NVMe drives with a 1:2 oversubscription. The use of NVMe drives maximizes drive I/O performance, in terms of throughput, bandwidth, and latency.
  • Supports 12x SATA drives using the onboard SATA controller (no additional adapter needed),
  • enabling lower cost, high capacity storage solution for cold storage workloads.
  • Supports high-speed RAID controllers from Broadcom providing 12 Gb SAS connectivity to the drive backplanes. A variety of PCIe 3.0 and PCIe 4.0 RAID adapters are available.
  • Supports up to o externally accessible 7mm hot-swap drives with RAID functionality for operating system boot functions or data storage Supports M.2 drives for convenient operating system boot functions or data storage. Available M.2 adapters support either one M.2 drive or two M.2 drives in a RAID 1 configuration for performance and reliability.
