    ThinkServer RD530Features

    Balanced Design

    Created with the right balance of processing power, memory, I/O, and storage in a dense 1U form factor, the ThinkServer RD530 is an ideal mainstream server. It boasts Intel® Xeon® processors up to 16 cores with large memory, I/O and storage scalability. Add in advanced hardware RAID and hot-swap and redundant components, and the RD530 is 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 RD530 is optimized for virtualization so you can deploy multiple virtual machines with confidence.

    Super Efficient

    The RD530 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. Plus the ThinkServer Smart Grid power management tool can help you save money by monitoring real-time power data based on parameters you define. You can also receive alerts based on custom power events.
