Built for business-critical versatility

Highly Versatile

Featuring the largest storage capacity and highest performance in Lenovo’s 1U server portfolio, Lenovo ThinkSystem SR630 excels at many workloads. With a wide selection of processors, drives, and interconnects, it helps you: 1) transform resources into services, using validated designs for hybrid cloud; 2) perform analytics on streaming data, using validated designs for Big Data; 3) improve performance of virtualized transactional systems, using validated designs for OLTP databases; or 4) simplify storage scale-out, using configuration guides for hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) or software-defined storage (SDS).

Highly Flexible

ThinkSystem SR630 includes two powerful Intel® Xeon® processor Scalable family CPUs with 27 percent more cores, twice the memory capacity and 50 percent more bandwidth than the prior generation*. It has up to four§ PCIe 3.0 slots for I/O flexibility. Unique Lenovo AnyBay technology provides optimized storage flexibility and performance, with up to 12 SFF or 4 LFF SAS/SATA HDDs/SSDs.

Four direct-connect NVMe ports on the motherboard provide ultra-fast read/writes with NVMe drives and reduce costs by eliminating PCIe switch adapters. Plus, storage can be tiered for greater application performance, to provide the most cost-effective solution. Optional mirrored M.2 boot drives ensure reliability and quick OS initialization. SR630 also supports modular LOM, ML2, and PCIe network adapters. To reduce energy costs, it features 80 PLUS Platinum and Titanium PSUs, and continuous operation at 45°C.

Easily Managed

Lenovo XClarity Controller is an all-new hardware embedded management engine common in every ThinkSystem server. XClarity Controller features an uncluttered graphical user interface, industry standard Redfish-compliant REST APIs, and enables booting in half the time of prior generation servers, with up to 6x faster firmware updates.

Lenovo XClarity Administrator is a virtualized application that centrally manages ThinkSystem servers, storage, and networking. Via reusable patterns and policies, it ramps up and scales infrastructure provisioning and maintenance. It serves as a central integration point to extend your data center management processes to physical IT. Running XClarity Integrators in external IT applications, or integrating through REST APIs, helps you further speed services provisioning, streamline IT management, and contain costs.

Lenovo servers continue to be the industry’s #1 most reliable‡, with the industry’s highest customer satisfaction** rating.
