ThinkServer RAID and PSU and System Management Solutions - Overview

Features and specifications

Protecting critical business data is one of the most important responsibilities any business has. Making this easy is our responsibility.

Lenovo introduces new RAID controllers and upgrades to ensure your server solution protects your critical business data.

The offering covers:

ThinkServer RAID 500 Adapter II
ThinkServer RAID 700 Adapter II

The ThinkServer RAID 500 Adapter II can use the existing RAID 500 Upgrade Key (0A89407) to support advanced RAID, such as RAID5.

The ThinkServer RAID 700 Adapter II can use the existing RAID 500 Battery (67Y2647) for emergency recovery.

Lenovo introduces a new system management module – ThinkServer Trusted Platform Module V1.1. The Trusted Platform Module offers facilities for the secure generation of cryptographic keys, and limitation of their use, in addition to a hardware pseudo-random number generator.

Software can use a Trusted Platform Module to authenticate hardware devices. Since each TPM chip has a unique and secret RSA key burned in as it is produced, it is capable of performing platform authentication. Generally, pushing the security down to the hardware level in conjunction with software provides more protection than a software-only solution.

Lenovo introduces a new cable management arm for rack enclosure.

The cable management arm is compatible with the most types of equipment. It is a fully adjustable, ruggedized solution. This cable management arm is very compact and will typically not have any type of obstruction issue caused by cable management.

Introducing ThinkServer Hot Swap Redundant Power Supplies to make sure your rack solution maintains high availability. Lenovo goes the extra mile to ensure your server keeps running. High availability is important for many businesses and Lenovo makes this possible by offering redundant power supplies.
