    ThinkServer RD540Features

    Balanced Design

    Created with the right balance of processing power, memory, I/O, and storage in a dense 1U form factor, the ThinkServer RD540 is an ideal mainstream server. Up to two Intel® Xeon® processors with up to 24 cores—significantly faster than previous-generation servers—and large memory capacity coupled with I/O and storage scalability, make the RD540 perfect for your line-of-business applications.

    Optimized for Virtualization

    Virtualization makes it faster and easier to deliver IT capabilities to your organization. With this blend of excellent performance, memory bandwidth, and powerful I/O choices, the RD540 is optimized for virtualization so you can deploy multiple virtual machines with confidence.

    Super Efficient

    The RD540 offers 80PLUS Gold power choices and an innovative spread-core board design that helps to lower thermal output. That adds up to a highly efficient 1U solution that doesn't compromise on performance. Also enjoy impressive power savings with Lenovo Smart Grid power management technology, which provides sophisticated, policy-based power capping tools to help you best manage power to changing server workloads.
