          Ordering Information

          The Lenovo Flex System X6 Compute Node, machine type 7196, is a high-performance scalable compute node that is designed to take on the most demanding workloads. The performance, flexibility, and resiliency features enable the X6 to run mission-critical workloads, such as key business applications, database, analytics, and large virtual machine deployments.

          The X6 Compute Node family is composed of the x880 X6, x480 X6, and x280 X6. Each compute node supports up to two Intel Xeon E7 processors. The x280 has two E7-2800 v2 processors and 48 DIMM slots but does not offer scaling.
