NeXtScale™ System is a dense computing offering based on Lenovo®'s experience with iDataPlex® and Flex System™ and with a tight focus on emerging and future client requirements. The NeXtScale n1200 Enclosure and NeXtScale nx360 M5 Compute Node are designed to optimize density and performance within typical data center infrastructure limits.

The 6U NeXtScale n1200 Enclosure fits in a standard 19-inch rack and up to 12 compute nodes can be installed into the enclosure. The WCT warm water-cooled versions of the NeXtScale n1200 and nx360 M5 offer the ultimate in performance and energy efficiency. With more computing power per watt and the latest Intel Xeon processors, you can reduce costs while maintaining speed and availability.

This Lenovo Press publication is for customers who want to understand and implement a water-cooled NeXtScale System® solution. It introduces the offering and the innovations in its design, outlines its benefits, and positions it with other x86 servers. The book provides details about NeXtScale System components and supported options, and provides rack, power and water planning considerations.

Lenovo NeXtScale System servers are based on Intel Xeon processors.
