Lenovo kondigt nieuwe generatie ThinkServer

systemen aan voor het MKB

Beste redactie,

Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) kondigt vandaag twee nieuwe rack-servers aan: de 1U ThinkServer RD350 en de 2U ThinkServer RD450. De nieuwe servers zijn speciaal ontworpen voor midden- en kleinbedrijven (MKB) en bieden een uitstekende balans tussen prestaties, flexibiliteit en betrouwbaarheid.

De RD350 en RD450 ThinkServers zijn beiden voorzien van een compacte behuizing, vernieuwde drive-trays en moederborden die meer ruimte besparen. Daarnaast bieden de nieuwe servers ook I/O mogelijkheden binnen de standaard 1U en 2U vormfactoren. Bedrijven met behoefte aan veel opslagruimte maar met beperkt budget voor een groter infrastructuur, kunnen hun voordeel halen uit de RD450. Deze server bevat maximaal 24[1] drive bays en heeft een instapprijs van slechts €1.429,-. De R350 biedt 16TB aan interne opslagruimte in een smalle en kleine 1U vormfactor en is ideaal voor bedrijven met weinig ruimte.

Bovendien zijn de ThinkServer RD350 en ThinkServer RD450 uitgerust met maximaal twee 12-core Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3-serie processors. Daarnaast kunnen de servers geconfigureerd worden om met 16 DIMM-slots maximaal 512 GB DDR4 geheugen te ondersteunen. Hiermee bieden de nieuwe rack-servers bijna drie keer meer geheugencapaciteit dan de vorige generatie servers en is de bandbreedte en energie-efficiëntie bijna verdubbeld. Dit zorgt voor kritische prestatieverbeteringen voor MKB werklasten zoals scale-out data-analyse, virtuele projecten en zware applicaties die een hogere verwerkingssnelheid vereisen.

Prijzen en beschikbaarheid

· De RD350 is half december 2014 beschikbaar vanaf €1.349,- exclusief BTW;

· De RD450 is half december 2014 beschikbaar vanaf €1.429,- exclusief BTW.

Lenovo Announces Next-Generation ThinkServer Systems for small business

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – December 02, 2014: Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced two new high-value rack servers adding to its recently announced next-generation Lenovo® ThinkServer® portfolio. The entry 1U ThinkServer RD350 and the storage-rich, 2U ThinkServer RD450 servers are designed for small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs) seeking an excellent balance of performance, flexibility and reliability at an attractive price point.

Affordable, Performance-Packed Servers

Highly flexible and scalable, the RD350 and RD450 ThinkServers feature redesigned and space-optimized drive trays, chassis and system boards to provide customers with additional storage density and I/O capability within standard 1U and 2U form factors. Businesses with substantial storage needs and a limited infrastructure budget will appreciate the RD450 for its 241 drive bays at an affordable, entry-level price point of €1.429,- The RD350 supports up to 16TB of internal storage in a slim, condensed 1U form factor ideal for organizations with space limitations. Available with either 2.5- or 3.5-inch drive configuration options, both rack servers are designed to scale as a customer’s businesses grows.

Additionally, both the ThinkServer RD350 and RD450 servers are equipped with up to two of the latest 12-core Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 series processors and can be configured to feature up to 512GB of DDR4 memory via 16 DIMM slots, nearly tripling the memory capacity of previous-generation servers. Combined, these features help generate almost double the bandwidth and power efficiency increase over DDR3 memory, delivering critical performance enhancements for SMBs running workloads such as scale-out data analytics, virtualized business workloads and compute-intensive applications that require faster processing.

The RD350 and RD450 ThinkServer systems are equipped with standard, built-in features including ECC memory, integrated RAID, hot-swappable HDD and SSD capability, as well as hot-swappable redundant power and redundant cooling to ensure greater server availability and reliability. For added flexibility, the RD450 2.5-inch configuration also leverages Lenovo’s unique ThinkServer AnyRAID adapters to provide advanced data protection and performance-enhancing features without taking up PCIe slots. Both servers are available with 80 PLUS Titanium or Platinum-rated power supplies, providing an 11 percent increase in performance efficiency over the Gold standard — more cost-effectively powering the most demanding infrastructure, collaboration and line-of-business applications.

Systems Management Tools Optimized for Mobility

With both new ThinkServer systems, clients get access to a suite of new, intuitive lifecycle tools that make management easy, including server-embedded tools for configuration and deployment, energy management and power planning. Partner packs for Microsoft and VMware — which allow clients to manage and monitor their ThinkServer environment from VMware vCenter or Microsoft System Center Operations Manager — are also available.


Convenient and Flexible Enterprise Service Offerings

Lenovo Services offer customers an enhanced level of protection required to keep their businesses up and running. Optional upgraded services are also available to help maximize uptime and productivity.

Quotes

"Lenovo understands that while SMBs rely on servers as the backbone of their businesses, they also face unique infrastructure challenges such as closet-sized data centers and limited budgets,” said Bob Galush, vice president, High Volume Servers and Options. "Our next-generation RD350 and RD450 ThinkServers address these critical customer concerns by providing a balance of enterprise-class performance, flexibility and legendary reliability in a low-cost package."

Pricing and Availability

The RD450 and RD350 will be available in the second half of December 2014 starting at €1.429,- and €1.349,- ex. VAT.
