Lenovo System x3850 X6
Innovation for business advantage
Fast Performance
The Lenovo System x3850 X6 delivers exceptionally fast
application performance thanks to a combination of storage and
memory technologies. The storage technologies include:
●● ●● Better Results
As businesses continue to expand into mobile and cloud arenas,
mission-critical applications—and data center infrastructure—
must do more. Superior IT solutions must easily scale-up for better performance, manage large masses of data, and make that
crucial actionable insight available in real-time. It’s a given that the
volume of data you manage continues to grow, yet you remain
constrained by a finite set of capital and operational resources.
The Lenovo System x3850 X6, based on the sixth generation of
Enterprise X-Architecture technology, helps you efficiently deliver
better, more timely business results.
X6 platforms, with Intel® Xeon® processors E7-4800/8800
v4 series, can produce up to 26 percent faster compute
performance than the last -generation of X6 systems with lastgeneration processors.* The X6 portfolio delivers large application
virtualization and decreases infrastructure costs and complexity.
Now you can design faster analytics engines, rein in IT sprawl
and deliver information with high reliability. X6 mission-critical
servers are fast, agile and resilient.

●● NVMe PCIe SSDs that provide a high performance SSD form
factor storage alternative that delivers lower latency and higher
IOPs than traditional flash drives.
Up to 6.0TB of DDR4 system memory for hosting essential
mission-critical applications, implementing large virtual
machines or running sizeable in-memory databases without
compromise.
io3 Enterprise Mainstream Flash Adapters, with up to 6.4TB
capacity and a write latency of 15µs, offer application acceleration with analytics, database, VDI, cloud, hyperscale and big
data applications.
Equipped with Intel® Xeon® processors E7-4800/8800 v4 series,
the x3850 X6 can deliver up to 6.0TB of memory and 96 cores of
processing power. You can host essential mission-critical applications, implement large virtual machines or run sizeable in-memory
databases without compromise.
Server-integrated flash storage solutions such as PCIe flash storage adapters or NVMe PCIe SSDs address storage bottlenecks
at the server to help reduce the need for investment in expensive
SAN/NAS storage. Less dependency on SAN/NAS hardware and
software results in reduced storage costs, and lower software
licensing costs.

Agile Design
availability and serviceability (RAS) features. Differentiated X6 selfhealing technology, proactively identifies potential failures and
transparently takes necessary corrective actions:
Change is inevitable and managing it is a must in order to
achieve or maintain market leadership. Changes in IT infrastructure typically drive complexity and cost. Managing evolving technology, divergent customer needs and fluctuating costs requires
an agile approach to platform design. The agility and adaptability
of the X6 modular rack design enables you to design a fit-forpurpose solution that meets your needs. Also, you can realize
infrastructure cost savings by hosting multiple generations
of technology in a single platform—without compromising
performance or capacity.† With X6 platforms:
●● ●● ●● ●● ●● ●● You can configure servers to fit the unique requirements of your
applications and workloads; you can add, modify or upgrade
X6 platforms easily with selectable modular “book” components. There are three types of X6 books—Storage Book,
Compute Book and I/O Book.
Instead of creating IT sprawl, you can scale capacity and
performance from 4-socket to 8-socket to deliver twice the
performance.
You can realize significantly-faster time-to-value by using
FastSetUp software for automated provisioning of a cluster
of servers.
●● ●● Advanced Page Retire—proactively protects applications from
corrupt pages in memory, crucial for scaling memory to
terabytes
Processor High Availability—allows the platform to maintain
access to networking, storage and server management during
a processor failure
Rolling Firmware Update Upward Integration Module—enables
concurrent updating of the system firmware with no impact on
application performance or availability
RAS Upward Integration Module—enables the creation and
management of policies to maintain high availability of virtual
machines
x3850 X6 modular design—reduces service time by enabling
quick easy replacement of upgradeable or failed components.
These built-in technologies drive the outstanding system availability and uninterrupted application performance needed to host
mission-critical applications.
Fast. Agile. Resilient.
Fast, agile and resilient, Lenovo System x X6 platforms not only
help reduce costs and complexity, but also deliver the breakthrough performance and capacity that today’s applications
demand. X6 systems are the result of more than 15 years of
X-Architecture investment and innovation aimed at surpassing
industry standards.
Resilient Platforms
The growth of new applications has ratcheted database
processing and business analytics to the top of the list of
prevalent x86 workloads. These workloads demand high velocity
data delivery and continuous availability from the enterprise platforms on which they run. X6 servers feature advanced reliability,
Why Lenovo
