Lenovo X6 Rack Servers – Modular ‘Book’ Architecture
Lenovo’s X6 rack servers, the four-socket Lenovo System x3850 X6 and the eight-socket Lenovo System x3950 X6 feature a modular design.
In addition, this modular architecture allows IT shops to easily upgrade other key components, such as storage, full-height and half-height I/O cards, as well as fans and power supplies, without the cost and disruption of replacing complete systems.
With support for DDR4 memory, and up to 192 DIMM slots, these systems can power the most memory-intensive workloads, including demanding database and analytics. Advanced reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features, such as Memory Page Retrieve, Consumed Error Recovery, and Upward Integration Modules, reduce support costs and increase system uptime.
