  • The server has two integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports.
  • The server offers PCI Express 3.0 I/O expansion capabilities that improve the theoretical maximum bandwidth by almost 100% (8 GT/ps per link using 128b/130b encoding) compared to the previous generation of PCI Express 2.0 (5 GT/s per link using 8b/10b encoding).
  • The server offers up to six PCIe 3.0 I/O expansion slots plus one slot reserved for the M.2 adapter
  • Support for up to two NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs) to maximize computing power.

Availability and serviceability

The ST550 provides the following features to simplify serviceability and increase system uptime:

  • The server offers Single Device Data Correction (SDDC, also known as Chipkill), Adaptive Double- Device Data Correction (ADDDC, also known as Redundant Bit Steering or RBS), memory mirroring, and memory rank sparing for redundancy in the event of a non-correctable memory failure.
  • The server offers hot-swap (HS) SSDs and HDDs, and supports RAID redundancy for data protection and greater system uptime.
  • Much like HS drives, simple-swap drives are mounted on an easy-to-remove tray and work with the same RAID options. Simple-swap require a system power-down before adding or replacing, however simple-swap drives are less expensive than hot-swap drives.
  • The Dual M.2 Boot Adapter supports RAID-1 which enables two installed M.2 drives to be configured as a redundant pair.
  • The server supports hot-swap power supplies; with two installed, they form a redundant pair to provide availability for business-critical applications. The server also offers an optional 4th fan which offers redundancy in most server configurations.
  • Toolless cover removal provides easy access to upgrades and serviceable parts, such as CPU, memory, and adapter cards.
  • Proactive Platform Alerts (including PFA and SMART alerts) for: processors, voltage regulators, memory, internal storage (SAS/SATA HDDs and SSDs), fans, power supplies, RAID controllers, and server ambient and sub-component temperatures. Alerts can be surfaced through the system IMM to managers such as Lenovo XClarity Administrator, VMware vCenter, and Microsoft System Center. These proactive alerts let you take appropriate actions in advance of possible failure, thereby increasing server uptime and application availability.
  • SSDs, with no moving parts, offer significantly better reliability than mechanical HDDs, for greater uptime.
  • The built-in XClarity Controller continuously monitors system parameters, triggers alerts, and performs recovery actions in case of failures to minimize downtime.
  • Built-in diagnostics in UEFI, using Lenovo XClarity Provisioning Manager, speed up troubleshooting tasks to reduce service time.
  • Lenovo XClarity Provisioning Manager supports diagnostics and can save service data to a USB key drive or remote CIFS share folder for troubleshooting and reduce service time.
  • Auto restart in the event of a momentary loss of AC power (based on power policy setting in the XClarity Controller service processor)
  • Support for the XClarity Administrator Mobile app running on a supported smartphone and connected to the server through the service-enabled USB port, enables additional local systems management functions.
  • Three-year or one-year customer-replaceable unit and onsite limited warranty, 9 x 5 next business day. Optional service upgrades are available.

Manageability and security

Memory options

The ST550 server supports Lenovo TruDDR4 memory. TruDDR4 memory uses the highest-quality components sourced from Tier 1 DRAM suppliers and only memory that meets strict requirements is selected. It is compatibility-tested and tuned to maximize performance and reliability.

TruDDR4 memory has a unique signature programmed into the DIMM, which enables ThinkSystem servers to verify whether the memory installed is qualified and supported. From a service and support standpoint, TruDDR4 memory automatically assumes the system's warranty, and service and support provided worldwide.

The ST550 supports up to 6 DIMMs per processor, for a total of 12 DIMMs when two processors are installed. Each processor has six memory channels, and supports one DIMM per channel.

All DIMMs operate at a speed of 2666 MHz. However, if the processor selected has a lower memory bus speed (eg 2400 MHz or 2133 MHz - see the Processor options table), then all DIMMs will operate at that lower speed.

The following table lists the memory options that are available for the ST550 server.

LRDIMMs
7X77A01305 AUNE ThinkSystem 64GB TruDDR4 2666 MHz (4Rx4 1.2V) LRDIMM 12 (6 per processor)

The following rules apply when selecting the memory configuration:

  • The server supports RDIMMs and LRDIMMs.i
  • Mixing RDIMMs and LRDIMMs is not supported.
  • Mixing x4 and x8 DIMMs is supported.
  • For best performance, populate memory DIMMs in quantities of 6 per processor, so that all memory channels are used.

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC
  • SDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs; look for "x4" in the DIMM description)
  • ADDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs; Gold and Platinum processors only)
  • Memory channel mirroring
  • Memory rank sparing

If memory channel mirroring is used, then DIMMs must be installed in pairs (minimum of one pair per processor), and both DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type and size. 50% of the installed capacity is available to the operating system.

If memory rank sparing is used, then a minimum of one quad-rank DIMM or two single-rank or dual-rank DIMMs must be installed per populated channel (the DIMMs do not need to be identical). In rank sparing mode, one rank of a DIMM in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory. The largest rank in the channel will be automatically selected as the spare rank. The amount of memory available to the operating system depends on the number, capacity and rank counts of the DIMMs installed.

Internal storage

The ST550 supports 2.5-inch hot-swap, 3.5-inch hot-swap, and 3.5-inch simple-swap drives in a variety of drive bay configurations.

In this section:

Drive bays and backplanes

The server supports up to 20 drive bays: It can support up to 16x 2.5-inch drives or 8x 3.5-inch drives, plus an additional 4x 2.5-inch drive bays installed in the space occupied by the two 5.25-inch media bays. Hot-swap (HS) drive configurations support SAS & SATA drives, and with an AnyBay backplane, can support up to four NVMe drives. Simple-swap (SS) drive configurations support SATA drives only. The server also supports one or two M.2 drives, installed in an M.2 adapter. The dual-M.2 adapter provides RAID 0 and 1 support.

Controllers for internal storage

The ST550 with hot-swap drives supports internal SAS and SATA drives with the addition of a RAID adapter or HBA. For NVMe support, the server supports the use of an NVMe Switch Adapter installed in a PCIe slot.

For simple-swap drive support, the ST550 uses two onboard 6Gb SATA ports to connect the four or eight simple-swap drives. These ports enable Intel RSTe for RAID functionality.

Virtualization support: The SATA ports can be used with virtualization hypervisors, including VMware ESXi, Linux KVM, Xen, and Microsoft Hyper-V, however support is limited to AHCI (non-RAID) mode. RSTe mode is not supported with virtualization hypervisors.

The following table lists the adapters used for the internal disk storage of the ST550 server.

* The P6000 is a double-width adapter: When installed in slot 3, slot 4 is no longer available. When installed in slot 5, slot 6 is no longer available.

The following other rules apply:

  • If two GPUs are installed, they must be identical
  • The first GPU is installed in slot 3; the second GPU is installed in slot 5 and requires the second processor to be installed.
  • The number of GPUs that can be installed depends on the type of power supply that is installed and the drive bay configuration selected. For more information, see the Power Supplies section.
  • Cooling requirements and limitations in fan redundancy exist for some configurations as described in the Fans and cooling section
  • The use of a GPU requires that Fan 4 (rear fan) be installed.

Tip: NVIDIA Pxxxx GPUs do not have the 1TB system memory limit that previous NVIDIA adapters had

Fans and cooling

The server can operate in environments up to ASHRAE A4 (45°C and 90% humidity). Details and restrictions are described in the Physical and electrical specifications section.

The server supports up to four simple-swap fans, three in the front of the server, just behind the drive bays and one installed at the rear of the server. See the Inside view in the Components and connectors section for locations.

Use of these fans is as follows:

  • Single processor systems require 2 fans, installed in the area behind drive bays
  • The third fan installed behind the drive bays (part number is 7XH7A06781) is required if either:
    • The server has two processors
    • The server has four 2.5-inch hot-swap drives bays installed in place of the two 5.25-inch media bays converted
  • Fan 4 (the fan at the rear of the server) can be installed as an N+1 redundant fan if desired. The part number is 7XH7A05900.
  • If a GPU is installed, Fan 4 is required and is non-redundant in most configurations. The following table indicates the cooling restrictions that apply when supported GPUs are installed:
    • Whether or not Fan 4 is redundant
    • Limits to ambient temperatures
