November 8, 2017 ... Lenovo has published six leadership one-processor (1P) performance results for the SPECjbb2015-MultiJVM, SPECjbb2015-Distributed and SPECjbb2015-Composite benchmarks.

Lenovo ThinkSystem SR650 SPECjbb2015 is a Java Business Benchmark and is the SPEC benchmark used for evaluating the performance of servers running typical Enterprise Java applications.

The ThinkSystem SR650 achieved the following six top SPECjbb2015 scores:

  • 89,767 SPECjbb2015-MultiJVM max-jOPS
  • 64,196 SPECjbb2015-MultiJVM critical-jOPS
  • 88,750 SPECjbb2015-Distributed max-jOPS
  • 65,293 SPECjbb2015-Distributed critical-jOPS
  • 86,843 SPECjbb2015-Composite max-jOPS
  • 77,009 SPECjbb2015-Composite critical-jOPS

These results prove the ThinkSystem SR650 performs the best in the industry for throughput and latency intensive workloads.

The SR650 was configured as follows:

  • Lenovo ThinkSystem SR650
  • 1x Intel Xeon Platinum 8180
    • 2.5 GHz with 38.5 MB L3 cache per processor
    • 1 processor, 28 cores
  • Lenovo TruDDR4 memory:
    • 192 GB for the MultiJVM max-jOPS and Distributed max-jOPS benchmarks
    • 384 GB for all other benchmarks
  • Operating system:
    • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP2 for the MultiJVM max-jOPS and Distributed max-jOPS benchmarks
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 7.3 for all other benchmarks
  • Oracle Java HotSpot 64-bit Server VM, version 1.8.0_144

About the ThinkSystem SR650

For medium to large enterprises, and managed and cloud service providers, Lenovo ThinkSystem SR650 is the optimum 2U, two-socket server—the most widely used server type worldwide. It’s engineered to deliver high performance with 205W CPUs, low-latency NVMe drives, and high-power GPUs.

With Lenovo’s history of reliability, the highly flexible and configurable SR650 is the ideal platform for hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) or software-defined storage (SDS). It provides a solid foundation for:

  • Transforming physical resources into services, using validated designs for hybrid cloud
  • Performing analytics on streaming data, using validated designs for Big Data
  • Increasing productivity of virtualized transactional systems, using validated designs for OLTP databases.

Lenovo XClarity Controller is an all-new hardware embedded management engine common in every ThinkSystem server. XClarity Controller features an uncluttered graphical user interface, industry standard Redfish-compliant REST APIs, and enables booting in half the time of prior generation servers, with up to 6x faster firmware updates.

Lenovo XClarity Administrator is a virtualized application that centrally manages ThinkSystem servers, storage, and networking. Via reusable patterns and policies, it ramps up and scales infrastructure provisioning and maintenance. It serves as a central integration point to extend your data center management processes to physical IT. Running XClarity Integrators in external IT applications, or integrating through REST APIs, helps you further speed services provisioning, streamline IT management, and contain costs.
