Lenovo releases new line of servers

To help SMBs manage their server environment

By CBR Staff Writer

Lenovo has introduced its new line of servers – the ThinkServer TD200 and TD200x tower servers as well as the RD210 and RD220 rack servers. The company claimed that the ThinkServers are suited for virtualisation, and have power saving features to help customers reduce their energy usage.

The new servers reportedly offer small to mid-sized businesses choices of Intel Xeon 5500 Series processors and memory and storage facilities. With the memory and storage capacity on the new models, customers can consolidate several legacy servers onto a single new ThinkServer. Lenovo also supports virtualisation offerings from Microsoft, Novell, VMWare and Red Hat.

Tom Tobul, executive director of enterprise systems, software and peripherals at Lenovo, said: “Our second generation of ThinkServers makes giant leaps in both performance and usability for small and mid-sized businesses, while offering new virtualisation and energy efficient features leading to a substantially lower cost of ownership. Lenovo ThinkServers are designed as turnkey solutions to help our customers smoothly scale up and easily manage their server environment.”

The new servers feature low wattage processor, and small form factor hard drives. Select models are compliant with Energy Star for Servers 1.0 which reportedly provides a 30% reduction in power usage compared with other x86 servers.

The new ThinkServers also come with the Integrated Management Module (IMM) which provides server management capabilities via web interface. With IMM, users can remotely access and manage their ThinkServer even if the server has crashed or is turned off.
