    ThinkServer RS140Updates to Buying



    Each organization has a unique set of requirements for server deployments. Which ThinkServer system best supports your key applications? Consider these questions, and see the below examples for more information. Once you have identified the appropriate system, click on the Channel Configurator to design the ThinkServer that best fits your needs, or consult your Lenovo sales rep or Lenovo Business Partner for a custom solution.

    Purpose: What is the primary function of your server? Is it a file/print server, application server, web server? Understanding your server's purpose will help you select the right performance, features, and options to meet your needs.

    Capacity: How many applications do you expect to be running on your server and how many users will you be supporting? This is very important because you want to make sure your solution can handle the applications/users without compromising on application performance and user productivity.

    Existing infrastructure: Is your current server infrastructure located in several regional offices, or at a central location? Does your current server infrastructure use any specific networking or storage technologies? Understanding your current implementation will help you select a server solution that integrates into your existing infrastructure, thereby reducing complexity and cost.
