The ThinkSystem ST550 is a high-performance dual-socket tower server based on the second-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, supporting a wide range of processors to suit a wide range of budgets and application requirements.

Scalability and performance

The ST550 offers the following features to boost performance, improve scalability, and reduce costs:

  • Improves productivity by offering superior system performance with up to two processors, each with up to 22 cores, and core speeds up to 3.8 GHz.
  • Hyper-Threading Technology to maximize the concurrent execution of multithreaded applications, available with most processors.
  • Intelligent and adaptive system performance with energy-efficient Intel Turbo Boost Technology, available with most processors, allows CPU cores to run at maximum speeds during peak workloads by temporarily going beyond processor thermal design power (TDP).
  • Intel Virtualization Technology integrates hardware-level virtualization hooks that allow operating system vendors to better use the hardware for virtualization workloads.
  • Intel Speed Select Technology provides improvements in server utilization and guaranteed per-core performance service levels with more granular control over processor performance.
  • Intel Deep Learning Boost (Vector Neural Network Instruction set or VNNI) is designed to deliver significant, more efficient Deep Learning (Inference) acceleration for high-performance Artificial Intelligence (AI) workloads.
  • Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (AVX-512) enable acceleration of enterprise-class workloads, including databases and enterprise resource planning (ERP).
  • Each processor has six memory channels with memory speeds of up to 2933 MHz to help maximize system performance
  • Up to 768 GB of memory capacity using 12x 64GB DIMMs
  • The 12 Gbps SAS internal storage connectivity doubles the data transfer rate compared to 6 Gb SAS solutions to maximize performance of storage I/O-intensive applications.
  • Flexible storage configurations support either 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch hot-swap drive bays or a combination of the two (hybrid configuration). Configurations with 3-5-inch simple-swap drive bays are also available. 
    • Up to 16x 2.5-inch drive bays with two 5.25-inch media drive bays available
    • Up to 20x 2.5-inch drive bays with the media bays converted to 4x 2.5-inch drive bays
    • Up to 8x 3.5-inch drive bays with two 5.25-inch media drive bays available
    • Up to 8x 3.5-inch + 4x 2.5-inch drive bays with the media bay conversion
    • Up to 8x 3.5-inch simple-swap drive bays
  • 3.5-inch drive bays support SAS and SATA HDDs and SSDs. 2.5-inch drive bays support SAS and SATA HDDs and SSDs, as well as NVMe drives.
  • Support for up to four NVMe PCIe SSDs in a 2.5-inch form factor maximizes drive I/O performance, in terms of throughput, bandwidth, and latency.
  • The use of solid-state drives (SSDs) instead of, or along with, traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) can significantly improve I/O performance. An SSD can support up to 100 times more I/O operations per second (IOPS) than a typical HDD.
  • New high-speed RAID controllers from Broadcom provide 12 Gb SAS connectivity to the drive backplanes. A variety of RAID adapters are available, with cache up to 4 GB and support for 20 drives on a single controller.
  • Supports a new Lenovo patented-design M.2 adapter for convenient operating system boot functions. Available M.2 adapters support either one M.2 drive or two M.2 drives in a RAID 1 configuration for greater boot drive performance and reliability.
  • The server has two integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports.
  • The server offers PCI Express 3.0 I/O expansion capabilities that improve the theoretical maximum bandwidth by almost 100% (8 GT/ps per link using 128b/130b encoding) compared to the previous generation of PCI Express 2.0 (5 GT/s per link using 8b/10b encoding).
  • The server offers up to six PCIe 3.0 I/O expansion slots plus one slot reserved for the M.2 adapter
  • Support for up to two NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs) to maximize computing power.
