Lenovo
Chinese technology major Lenovo on Monday launched its ThinkServer brand in India aimed at small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the country.

The launch of ThinkServer TS140, an entry-level tower server, and ThinkServer RD450-an entry level 2U rack server, is the first addition from the ThinkServer portfolio to the EBG server range for Lenovo in India, post their acquisition of IBM’s x86 business in 2014, a company statement said.

“We are extremely happy to be launching the first ThinkServer in India – a small step as we move towards becoming a market-leader in enterprise solutions by 2020,” said Siddhesh Naik, director of enterprise business group at Lenovo, at the launch.

“With ThinkServer TS140 and RD450 we aim to take the legendary Think engineering to new age Indian small businesses who are looking to build their first DIY server compute cluster, or a software defined storage cluster, or even managed service providers looking for a whisper-quiet machine,” Naik added.

ThinkServer TS140 is engineered to enable 24×7 running time. Additionally, the advanced thermal design also reduces overall system noise to super-quiet levels of close to 26 decibels.

The model also supports enterprise grade hard disk drives that have 3x higher MTBFs and can handle up to 10 times the workload as compared to entry-level servers that come with consumer-grade hard drives.

The ThinkServer RD450 strikes the perfect balance between high reliability, powerful software solutions and versatile storage capacity.

The model comes with next generation mainstream CPUs up to 105W offering 267 percent more memory capacity, improved systems management capabilities and range of Platinum/Titanium PSUs.

Users can benefit from increased performance, faster IO for business applications and highly efficient flexible design aimed at reducing power consumption and cost, the company said.
