System x3750 M4 Implementation GuidePlanning / Implementation
The Lenovo® System x3750 M4 is a 4-socket server that features a streamlined design that is optimized for price and performance with best-in-class flexibility and expandability. Models of the x3750 M4 are powered with the Intel Xeon E5-4600 v2 processors for an entry-level, 4-socket solution. The x3750 M4 provides maximum storage density, with flexible PCIe and 10 Gb Ethernet networking options in a 2U form factor.
The x3750 M4 is ideal for technical computing workloads with floating-point computations, small to medium databases that require fast I/O, and applications that require 4-socket performance. This system is for workloads that do not need the extra scalability that the X6 systems provide.
This paper introduces the server and provides technical details about all hardware subsystems. It explains how to set up the Integrated Management Module II (IMM2) for remote access. It then describes important setup tasks in the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), including disk and network configuration. This paper also describes ways to update firmware and includes pointers on how to install the supported operating systems.
This paper is intended for clients, Lenovo Business Partners, and Lenovo employees that want to learn more about the System x3750 M4 and how to prepare it to run high-performance applications.
