Lenovo bringt ThinkEdge SE450 für KI-Workloads am Edge auf den Markt

Lenovo bringt den ThinkEdge SE450 . auf den Markt. Ein Schwerpunkt auf CPU-Leistung, kompaktes Design, und Cloud-Konnektivität machen den Server für die Ausführung von KI-Workloads am Edge geeignet.

Das Modell folgt dem Lenovo ThinkSystem SE350, ein Edge-Server, der im Mai dieses Jahres eingeführt wurde. Beide Server haben eine geringe Größe, relatively low power consumption and a common provision of data processing requirements.

Laut Lenovo, the SE450 is particularly suitable for AI applications. The model includes a 3rd Gen Intel Xeon CPU, a generation with Intel Deep Learning Boost technology. While we know the release was designed with Nvidia GPUs in mind, it’s unclear at this point if and which GPUs will be included. In terms of storage, the model offers space for six 2.5-inch 7mm drives (SSD), six NVMe drives and two M.2 boot drives (RAID 1).

Suitability for the edge comes from the integration of Lenovo Open Cloud Automation, unter anderem. Every ThinkEdge SE450 runs on the technology. It includes an automation platform for deploying servers in existing infrastructures. Lenovo Open Cloud Automation integrates with Kubernetes, Red Hat OpenShift and VMware Cloud Foundation, ensuring relatively rapid deployment in infrastructures with such technologies.

The ThinkEdge SE450 comes in two forms. Zunächst, the model is available separately. Second, the server will be integrated into Lenovo TruScale, a single service with everything you need to extend workloads from the edge to the cloud, including edge servers and appropriate storage.
