Balanced performance and scalability

Powerful and Balanced

Designed for rack environments that require peak two-socket performance and sizeable memory capacity, the Lenovo ThinkSystem SR590 can tackle cloud and Big Data environments for medium and large enterprises. The SR590 is a balanced, midrange rack server that also works well for small-scale virtualization, collaboration and productivity applications, as well as caching and logging.

Two second-generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Family processors increase agility and manage data-rich, high-demand workloads with up to a 1.5x memory bandwidth increase over the previous generation. Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory combined with up to 1TB of 2933MHz TruDDR4 memory capacity enable applications to run faster and more efficiently and boost business performance at a lower cost and higher overall value.

Flexible and Expandable

The SR590 supports up to 16 hot-swap 2.5” or 14 hot-swap or simple-swap 3.5” drive bays. Up to four of the 2.5” or 3.5” bays can be AnyBay, capable of supporting not only SAS/ SATA drives, but also direct-connect NVMe drives (which bypass the SAS bus) for the ultimate in storage performance. In addition, the SR590 supports SAS and SATA HDDs and SSDs with up to 12Gb SAS throughput, as well as up to two M.2 drives for faster, more secure OS boot.

The SR590 provides storage flexibility, NIC expansion in multiple form factors, including LOM, ML2, and PCIe, and replaceable I/O riser cards for varied adapter slot configurations.

Reliable and Secure

Lenovo servers have been the most reliable in the industry for several years. They were ranked #1 yet again in the latest ITIC survey of x86 server reliability.* The SR590 is no exception, including many features that contribute to the reliability and security of the server and your all-important data.

ThinkShield is a comprehensive end-to-end approach to security that begins with development and continues through supply chain and the full life cycle of the device. From the data center to the edge of the network our priority is protecting your business with each product.

Lenovo XClarity Controller is the embedded management engine in all ThinkSystem servers that is designed to standardize, simplify, and automate foundation server management tasks. Lenovo XClarity Administrator is a virtualized application that centrally manages ThinkSystem servers, storage, and networking, which can reduce provisioning time up to 95% versus manual operation. Running XClarity Integrator helps you streamline IT management, speed provisioning, and contain costs by seamlessly integrating XClarity into an existing IT environment.

These features result in an ideal server for proxy caching, cloud, CRM, security, virtualization, media streaming, Big Data, databases, database-driven Web serving, mail serving, and many other workloads.
