Lenovo Unveils New ThinkServers For Demanding Virtualization And Cloud Deployments

Lenovo (SEHK:0992) (Pink Sheets:LNVGY) today announced, at the EDUCAUSE annual conference here, two new performance-optimized rack servers, the ThinkServer RD540 and ThinkServer RD640. Armed with the latest Intel® Xeon E5 processors, these highly efficient and flexible servers are designed for easy integration into existing IT infrastructures that handle demanding virtualization, cloud and compute-intensive workloads.

Lenovo’s ThinkServer RD540 and RD640 are an ideal choice for educational institutions seeking affordable options that pack a punch. The RD540 and RD640 provide the performance, security and reliability needed to support large university workloads and operations. When optionally equipped with Stoneware’s webNetwork software, school administrators, students and staff can access data, applications and services from a multitude of devices and platforms using just a browser. With low price points, built-in redundancy, high reliability components and sophisticated cooling technology, the RD540 and RD640 deliver outstanding value for higher education.

With high-performance hardware RAID for data protection, web-enabled remote management and a powerful, easy-to-use management tool suite all offered as standard equipment, the budget-friendly RD540 and RD640 provide uncompromising performance ideal for scale-out data analytics, virtualized business workloads, and compute intensive applications.

The ThinkServer RD540 and RD640 rack servers come equipped with up to 320GB memory and the latest Intel® Xeon E5-2600 v2 processors, which offer impressive compute power-per-watt -- up to 24 cores -- delivering 27 percent faster performance than the previous generation award winning RD servers. Both of these servers feature balanced design, flexible configurations and expansive I/O to handle demanding deployments. Powerful new network adapter, storage controller and sophisticated RAID choices increase scalability, reliability and input/output (I/O) capacity to handle growing requirements for large and compute intensive scale-out applications. RAID options from LSI® include the ThinkServer RAID 710 adapter with 1GB write-back cache and available LSI® MegaRAID CacheCade Pro 2.0 and Fastpath for outstanding reliability and IOPs performance.
