Maximum Core Density & Flexibility

Powered by the latest Intel® Xeon® 6 processor, the ThinkSystem SD520 V4 can accelerate parallel workloads for processing massive transactional data per second. The Intel® Xeon® 6 processor increases processing speed by maximizing core density with up to 576 cores per 2U chassis.

The multi-node format of the SD520 V4 adds greater flexibility to your rack space. Install 2, 3, or 4 nodes in a 2U chassis and easily scale out as needed.

Compute-Intensive Workloads

The ThinkSystem SD520 V4 is tailored for high-volume transactional data that demands speed. Perfect for web transactions, online banking, CSPs, Telco, and HPC workloads needing high core density to process multiple data streams simultaneously. With the Intel® Xeon® 6 processor, it swiftly handles massive data for compute-intensive tasks.

Designed for Efficiency

The ThinkSystem SD520 V4 server boosts performance per watt for high-volume workloads and reduces power usage compared to a standard rack server. Up to four servers can fit in the 2U ThinkSystem D3 V2 chassis, sharing 2-3 power supplies. With Neptune™ liquid cooling, it enhances efficiency by up to 40%, perfect for large-scale CSP and HPC installations. Ideal for online banking, e-retail, and cloud computing.

XClarity One System Management

The ThinkSystem SD520 V4 server includes XClarity One system management and the industry's first hybrid cloud-based unified Management-as-a-Service (MaaS), providing three predictive failure analytics engines to swiftly identify potential issues and minimize system downtime while increasing accuracy.

It also includes XClarity Controller 3 (XCC3) to monitor server availability. Optional upgrade to XCC Platinum to provide remote control (keyboard video mouse) functions, support for mounting remote media files (ISO and IMG image files), boot capture, and power capping.
