    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 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.”

    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 licensing, empowering users to accelerate emerging workloads more efficiently. Additionally, customers can realize a reduction in total cost of ownership (TCO) by up to 46 percent. Further supporting these advances in workload efficiency and TCO savings are the ThinkSystem SR635 and SR655 servers’ world records for energy efficiency. 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 VX and other certified nodes and appliances for simple deployment, management, and scalability.

    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.”

    The new Lenovo ThinkSystem SR635 and SR655 solutions are now available through Lenovo sales representatives and channel partners across the globe.

    From insideHPC: “AMD to Power Two Cray CS500 Systems at Army Research Centers” 

    From insideHPC

    August 8, 2019

    Today Cray announced that the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) has selected two Cray CS500 systems for its High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) annual technology procurement known as TI-18.

    The two contracts are valued at more than $46M and the CS500 systems are expected to be delivered to ARL and ERDC in the fourth quarter of 2019.

    “We’re proud to continue to support the DOD and its advanced use of high-performance computing in providing ARL and ERDC new systems for their research programs,” said Peter Ungaro, CEO at Cray. “We’re looking forward to continued collaboration with the DOD in leveraging the capabilities of these new systems to achieve their important mission objectives.”

    Cray has a long history of delivering high-performance computing technologies to ARL and ERDC and continues to play a vital role in helping the organizations deliver on their missions to ensure the U.S. remains a leader in science. Both organizations’ CS500 systems will be equipped with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors and NVIDIA Tensor Core GPUs, and will provide access to high-performance capabilities and resources that make it possible for researchers, scientists and engineers across the Department of Defense to better understand insights and enable new discoveries across diverse research disciplines to address the Department’s most challenging problems.

    “We are truly proud to partner with Cray to create the world’s most powerful supercomputing platforms. To be selected to help accelerate scientific research and discovery is a testament to our commitment to datacenter innovation,” said Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager, Datacenter and Embedded Solutions Business Group, AMD. “By leveraging breakthrough CPU performance and robust feature set of the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors with Cray CS500 supercomputers, the DOD has a tremendous opportunity to grow its computing capabilities and deliver on its missions.”
