Transformational performance, best-in-class pricing

Fast, Flexible, Reliable, Secure

Designed for I/O intensive workloads such as SAP HANA, video surveillance, and media streaming, the Lenovo ThinkSystem DS6200 SAN array offers breakthrough performance and scale at best-in-class pricing, allowing businesses to use date to gain business insight faster.

The easy-to-use management interface makes complex administrative storage tasks simple. Setup is complete in less than five minutes, with Rapid Deployment and EZ Start eliminating costly and complex deployment while freeing up IT resources for other business tasks. This same interface is used across the DS Series family allowing for flexible IT administration.

In order to be successful, businesses require data availability at all times. Business insights, customer information, and decision making are all key components to achieve business success. If data isn't available, it's hard to make money. The DS Series is designed for 99.999 percent availability, eliminating any unexpected downtime that is costly to businesses. 

The ThinkSystem DS6200 is highly flexible with room to grow as data needs expand. The DS6200 holds up to 24x 2.5-inch HDDs and SSDs internally and supports expansion up to 276 total drives.

The DS6200 supports several security features that allow your data to stay safe from hacking or other disruptors. You can populate your system with SED drives to protect your system from viruses and other possible attacks.

Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) assures data protection during file transfer and management. Access Controls allow you to designate certain users who can access your company data and block users who are not approved for access. These features on the DS6200 ensure your company’s data safety and provide peace of mind for data security.

For ultimate flexibility, the DS Series supports replication between its new 12Gb platform and first generation S Series systems. This enables you to move your high-performance workloads to the faster-performing DS Series and redeploy the older models as data lakes or replication targets.

Uncompromising Performance

The ThinkSystem DS6200 delivers higher IOPS and low latency through the Rapid Data Placement Engine, at a fraction of the cost of competing All Flash solutions. Designed for speed within a cost-optimized architecture, the DS6200 delivers superior cost/GB without compromising performance.

It’s equipped with storage tiering, high availability, thin provisioning, and other enterprise-class features. This provides your business with a solid foundation to grow, while delivering the best price for performance in its class.

You no longer need to decide between faster access to information and lowering the cost of your IT infrastructure. The ThinkSystem DS6200 allows you to save money while maintaining operational excellence.
