Today’s mission-critical applications must do more as businesses expand access through new mobile and cloud deployments. Ready access to actionable information is crucial. For this to happen, IT solutions must easily scale performance, manage large masses of data and make information available in real time.
The volume of data and transactions continues to grow exponentially, so businesses remain constrained by a finite set of capital and operational resources. The Lenovo® System x3950 X6 incorporates the sixth generation of enterprise X ARCHITECTURE® to help deliver better, more efficient business results.
X6 platforms can produce up to 125 percent faster compute performance than previous-generation systems.1 The X6 portfolio increases virtualization density and decreases infrastructure costs and complexity. Now you can design faster analytics engines, rein in IT sprawl and deliver information with high reliability. X6 servers are fast, agile and resilient.
1 125 percent performance improvement is based on results of SPECint*_rate_base2006, SPECfp*_rate_base2006, and TPC-E benchmarks, plus performance gains from eXFlash DIMM storage. SPEC and TPC benchmark results are available at www.spec.org and www.tpc.org. Configurations are for 8-socket x3950 X6 server using Intel Xeon processor E7 v2 family vs. 8-socket server using the previous top-of-the-line Intel E7 v1 family.
4 When a newer generation of processor and memory technology becomes available, Compute Books can be replaced with newer ones. (All Compute Books must use matching technology.)
* The 4800 series of processors is only appropriate for a 4-socket system, while the 8800 series must be used for an 8-socket system.
