Serving Up The Server
The foundation of the appliance is Lenovo's x3650 M5 2U compute and storage node. The storage-dense x3650 comes with two Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 series processors, a high-performance caching tier of four Intel SSDs and a data tier of eight HDDs. Two additional data tier HDDs are available, along with two mirrored boot drives. Each node is designed with high-speed, dual-port 10/25GbE Mellanox ConnectX-4 network adapters.
