Lenovo: Budget-Friendly ThinkServers For SMBs
Lenovo, Research Triangle Park, N.C., in June unveiled a new line of single-processor 1U servers targeting SMB and remote office deployments. The servers, based on Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3 series processors, include the ThinkServer RS140 with integrated graphic processing for data center edge streaming of media, games and other graphic-intensive web content. Lower-cost versions can be configured with Intel Core i3, Pentium or Celeron processors.
The RS140 supports up to 32 GB of RAM, 8 TB of internal storage and a full-height, half-length PCIe slot. The servers are only 16.2 inches deep, which means they can be deployed in small wiring closets or using two-post racks.
