Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 and ThinkServer RD450 Launched - Indian SMEs To Benefit

The Chinese multi-national tech giant Lenovo has launched its Thinkserver brand in the country with two entry level models- ThinkServer TS140 (Tower server), ThinkServer RD450 (2U rack server). This launch comes after its recent acquisition of IBM’s x86 business in 2014, and aims to provide a much needed boost to Digital India initiative. It caters to the needs of small Indian SMEs who are looking to build their first DIY server computer cluster, or a software defined storage cluster, or even managed service providers looking for a whisper-quiet machine, Siddhesh Naik, Director of Enterprise Business Group at Lenovo was quoted as saying.


The ThinkServer TS140 provides a 15-percent performance increase over previous-generation towers; with 24x7 running time and includes reliability features such as error correcting code (ECC) memory and an onboard storage controller with the capability of implementing up to RAID 5 to safeguard data. The model is whisper-quiet (26 decibels) with up to 16TB of storage, 32GB of memory, and 4 PCI/PCIe slots. ThinkServer RD450 boasts up to two of the latest Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 Series processors, with up to 512GB of memory via 16 slots. The 2U server offers flexible configuration options while its large and cost-effective storage capacity makes it ideal for small- medium sized businesses.

The Government of India is already rooting for projects as Digital India and e-governance and thus there is a great chance for the company to fork in their revenues from these sectors, which it expects to be well up to 20-25 percent. With this first addition to its EBG server range in India, it aims to upgrade entire server spectrum ranging from entry-level to high-end servers in future.

The tech-giant’s 12-13% of server revenues come from Government verticals and hence remains its top priority sector. The introduction of the models is set to benefit a range of business applications with faster outputs, and increased performances; delivering the legendary Think Engineering to new age businesses.
