  • Features


    Infrastructure made simple

    The SN550 is a highly capable compute node that is part of Lenovo’s Flex System blade server architecture. Blade server systems allow for the pooling of system resources; power, cabling, management, networking, and cooling resources are all shared as a function of the blade chassis (see Lenovo Flex System Enterprise Chassis). The blade architecture saves on OPEX costs and allows for optimal server density, positioning Flex System well for both resource- and space-constrained environments.
