    Achieve Scale & Lower Operating Costs

  • Features



    • Achieve scale while lowering your operating expense and raising your performance.
    • Reach peak performance by operating continuously in turbo mode.
    • Greater energy efficiency across the data center.
    • Reduce nearly all data center noise by eliminating system cooling fans.
    • Drive faster payback by repurposing system heated water elsewhere in your facility.
    • Significantly enhance density while helping to lower power and cooling costs—without sacrificing performance

    Scalable, Powerful, Dense

    Lenovo NeXtScale System addresses the increasing data and computing challenges of the data center by delivering dense performance across a variety of functions—from compute, I/O, storage and acceleration—in more cost- and energy-efficient ways than ever before. NeXtScale System now provides even greater performance, efficiency and flexibility with a choice of air-cooled or water-cooled offerings.

    Strong Foundation

    Included as a key part of the Lenovo server family, the space-saving NeXtScale System comprises powerful compute, storage and acceleration nodes in an energy-efficient, low-cost 6-bay enclosure.

    NeXtScale nx360 M5 WCT Compute Node

    Lenovo NeXtScale System with Water Cool Technology (WCT) uses an innovative direct water-cooling design to more efficiently cool system components such as processors, memory and I/O cards. Instead of using fans, water is delivered directly to the server and circulated throughout the system through cooling tubes, supporting water inlet temperatures up to 45 degrees Celsius. This makes expensive water chillers unnecessary and reduces total cost of ownership (TCO), while significantly improving energy efficiency in the data center for a greener environment. It also drives ongoing operational cost savings that result in quick payback of initial investment and continued savings for lower TCO. This is particularly essential in geographies with high electricity costs or high cost of floor space.

    Some key benefits of NeXtScale System M5 with Water Cool Technology include:

    • 40 percent more energy-efficient data center
    • 10 percent more power-efficient server
    • >85 percent of heat can be recovered from the system and can be used for other purposes such as heating other buildings and facilities.

    The NeXtScale System M5 with Water Cool Technology comprises powerful compute nodes, along with unique enclosure and manifolds with an innovative water-cooled design.

    nx360 M5 WCT Compute Tray

    This 1U full-wide compute tray includes two half-wide server nodes that are cooled by innovative Water Cool Technology (WCT) to drive even greater energy efficiency and performance into the data center. It supports the following platform features: 

    • Powerful Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 series (up to 22 cores) are allowed to run in Turbo mode continuously due to efficient Water Cool Technology, enabling the highest possible compute performance.
    • 16 DIMM slots support 2400MHz DDR4 memory, enabling 512GB per node using 32GB DIMMs.
    • New x16 ML2 slots support InfiniBand and Ethernet adapters for increased flexibility.

    n1200 WCT Enclosure

    The Lenovo NeXtScale n1200 WCT Enclosure utilizes Water Cool Technology to cool six full-wide nx360 M5 WCT compute trays, each housing two high-performance compute nodes, for a total of 12 servers per 6U enclosure. Uniquely designed for water cooling, this enclosure requires no internal fans. It connects to water manifolds that manage inlet and outlet water flows directly to each compute node.
