High-Density with Storage

Powered by a single 4th Generation AMD EPYC™ Processor, the ThinkSystem SD535 V3 is a robust 1U half-width multi-node server (node). With up to 4 nodes per chassis and the choice of up to 6x SAS, SATA, or NVMe SSDs per node, it provides optimal storage and high-density computing power.

The ThinkSystem SD535 V3 offers flexible, high-density, computing with increased storage over other multi-node servers.

The increased storage options in the SD535 V3 make it ideal for compute-intensive workloads like big data analytics and virtualization, which require a moderate amount of storage.

Flexible & Easy to Manage

Taking advantage of the D3 Chassis, the ThinkSystem SD535 V3 is a modular multi-node server adding greater flexibility to your rack space. Using the ThinkSystem D3 Chassis, you can start with one node and scale out as needed.

In addition, you can mix node types, including Intel® and AMD within the same chassis to meet your processing needs, regardless of the processor type.

With the addition of XClarity Controller, the ThinkSystem SR535 V3 is easily managed and when mixing Lenovo ThinkSystem Multi-Node types within the same chassis, it manages all of the nodes in one view.

Efficiency & Performance

The ThinkSystem SD535 V3 stands at the forefront of operational excellence, ingeniously engineered to enhance thermal efficiency and performance. Its 1U optimized thermal design, combined with the capability for up to four nodes to share merely two or three power supplies, epitomizes efficient, dense processing—thereby significantly reducing operational expenses.

Tailored for large enterprises and High-Performance Computing (HPC) environments with an appetite for swift data processing and a moderate storage requirement, the ThinkSystem SD535 V3 delivers unparalleled performance.

It achieves this while simultaneously minimizing the data center footprint, making it an exemplary choice for organizations aiming to achieve high efficiency and sustainability in their operations
