• Lenovo's new ThinkSystem SR635 and SR655 single-socket server platforms are specifically built to harness the full potential of AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series processors
• Enhance video security and other critical applications for edge and virtualized environments with greater storage, processing and graphics capabilities
• Enable organizations to accomplish more with less, reducing TCO by up to 46 percent and reducing software licensing costs by up to 73 percent 
• Drive advanced network intelligence and analytics by delivering new levels of workload efficiency and performance to address growing pain points for our telecommunications customers
 
Dubai, United Arab Emirates -  08, August 2019:   Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY), a technology leader in Intelligent Transformation, today introduced the Lenovo ThinkSystem SR635 and SR655 server platforms, two of the industry's most powerful single-socket servers. As businesses are tasked with doing more with less, the new Lenovo solutions provide the performance of a dual-socket server at the cost of a single-socket.
 
These new additions to Lenovo's expansive server portfolio are powered by next-generation AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series processors and were designed specifically to handle customers' evolving, data-intensive workloads such as video security, software-defined storage and network intelligence, as well as support for virtualized and edge environments. The result is a solution that packs power along with efficiency for customers who place a premium on balancing throughput and security with easy scalability. 
 
“Lenovo's endless pursuit of innovations to accelerate our customers' intelligent transformation has been paramount in our rise to become one of the fastest growing data center OEMs in the world,” said Doug Fisher, Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President of Business Units, Lenovo Data Center Group. “Today Lenovo is expanding our AMD relationship with new, fully optimized solutions to help our joint customers address complex and data-intensive workloads, enabling them to do more with less while still providing uncompromised end-to-end security.”
 
Organizations are juggling business priorities with tight budgets. Lenovo's new ThinkSystem SR635 and SR655 server platforms not only allow customers to run more workloads on fewer servers, but also offer up to 73 percent savings on potential software licensing1, empowering users to accelerate emerging workloads more efficiently. Additionally, customers can realize a reduction in total cost of ownership (TCO) by up to 46 percent2. Further supporting these advances in workload efficiency and TCO savings are the ThinkSystem SR635 and SR655 servers' 16 world records, including two for energy efficiency3. The net result of all these enhancements is better price for performance. 
 
The Lenovo ThinkSystem SR635 and SR655 provide more throughput, lower latency and higher core density, as well as the largest NVMe drive capacity of any single socket on the market. Beyond that, the new 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ processor-based systems also provide a solid opportunity for the enablement of additional hyperconverged infrastructure solutions. This gives Lenovo the ability to offer customers vSAN and other certified nodes and future ThinkAgile software-defined appliances for simple deployment, management, and scalability. 
 
 
Enabling Smart Cities
 
A new forecast from IDC estimates there will be 41.6 billion connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices, generating 79.4 zettabytes of data by 20254. Much of the growth will be driven by IoT and video security technology. Lenovo's new solutions are especially ideal for use cases where more computing power is needed in confined spaces, using less energy; an example of this is video security for public safety in smart city, campus and mass transit environments. Governments and other public safety organizations are tasked with monitoring these environments, swiftly and accurately identifying potential threats and responding quickly. The Lenovo ThinkSystem SR655 coupled with Pivot3's software provides an edge computing video security solution capable of supporting up to 33 percent more video cameras per node5 than similar solutions. With the increased bandwidth of PCIe® 4.0, supported by the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ processors, customers get faster data transfer from the edge to the core and greater storage capacity permitting quicker recall of video for recognition and analysis. 
 
The ultra-dense NVMe configurations of these new Lenovo solutions with AMD processors allow users to store and access huge amounts of data. Supporting up to six single-width or three double-width graphics processing units (GPUs), these new systems provide the ability to process and analyze high-definition video much quicker and more efficiently. The GPUs coupled with the new AMD processor deliver faster video ingest rates, enhanced video analysis and improved machine learning, helping governments and other organizations better protect the people they serve.
 
“The combination of Lenovo's quality and resilience and the breakthrough performance of the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processor deliver what our customers need to support their mission critical deployments,” said Bruce Milne, Pivot3 Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer and General Manager. “As Pivot3 customers expand their use of intelligent infrastructure for safe airport, campus, hospitality and transportation use cases, security, resilience and management simplicity at scale are critically important. AMD and Lenovo allow us to deliver all of that and to delight our customers.”
Maximizing the Value of Virtualization
 
In virtualized environments, organizations often have to decide between maximum performance and security. The hardware-assisted VM and memory encryption security features of the AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series processors combined with Lenovo ThinkShield solutions solve for this dilemma utilizing an extra layer of security for virtualization that isolates and minimizes threats in the data center. Moreover, because the VM encryption resides in the hardware as opposed to the software or hypervisor, they do so without compromising on system performance. Security is also of the utmost importance in video analysis and public safety scenarios. New features like a physical intrusion switch can detect and prevent tampering, allowing organizations to confidently run their security systems on Lenovo's secure platforms. With up to 64 cores per socket and increased performance, these new Lenovo solutions allow organizations to host more virtual machines per server, providing greater distributed computing capability and improved workload efficiency. 
 
Unleashing Smarter Networks with Data Intelligence
 
Many customers have been eagerly anticipating these systems due to their ability to handle data-intensive workloads, including Allot, a leading global provider of innovative network intelligence and security solutions for communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises. They require solutions that can turn network, application, usage and security data into actionable intelligence that make their customers' networks smarter and their users more secure. The market dictates that those solutions be able to match their ever-evolving needs and help them to address new pain points that surface as IT demands continue to change. 
 
“Lenovo's integration of next generation I/O and processing technology gives Allot the ability to manage more network bandwidth at higher speeds, allowing us to pull actionable insights from increasingly heavy traffic without any degradation in performance,” said Mark Shteiman, AVP of Product Management with Allot. “The communication service providers and enterprises we support need to see and react to their network needs in real time. We evaluated Lenovo's ThinkSystem SR635 and SR655 server platform prototypes and were immediately impressed.”
