Abstract

The increasing demand for cloud computing and business analytical workloads by enterprises to meet business needs drives innovation to find new ways to build informational systems. Clients are looking for cost-optimized fit-for-purpose IT solutions that manage large amounts of data, easily scale performance, and provide reliable real-time access to actionable information.

Built on decades of innovation, Lenovo introduces its sixth generation of Enterprise X-Architecture® technology, Lenovo X6 servers. X6 servers are designed to be fast, agile, and resilient:

  • Fast application performance means immediate access to actionable information.
  • Agile system design helps to reduce acquisition costs and provide the ability to host multiple generations of technology in a single server.
  • Resilient platforms maximize application uptime and promote easy integration in virtual environments.

X6 servers continue to lead the way as the shift toward mission-critical scalable databases, business analytics, virtualization, enterprise applications, and cloud applications accelerates.
