Powerful Performance
Without Breaking the Bank.

With its powerful dual socket Intel® Xeon® technology processors with up to 12 CPU cores, the ThinkServer RD230 is up to 60% faster than previous generation servers. Yet it doesn’t break the bank. Designed to keep costs down while still delivering valuable functionality, the RD230 optimizes server performance and value. Featuring built-in web remote management, advanced RAID, and popular server options, the RD230 performs from day one. The balance of features and value make the RD230 ideal for solutions like IT infrastructure (domain controllers, firewalls), web and application server farms, and file/print solutions.

Powerful Computing

With its powerful dual socket Intel® Xeon® 5600-class technology, the RD230 can easily power most demanding applications such as media streaming, webapp clusters, and infrastructure solutions. With 8 memory slots and a scalable memory capacity of 64GB, the ThinkServer RD230 offers the horsepower required for increasingly demanding workloads.

Scaleable Storage Technology

The RD230 offers scalable storage capacity up to 8TB and a choice of high-performance SAS hard drives or low-cost SATA hard drives — which provides storage scalability to grow within your solution needs. Additionally, built-in hot swap capability allows you to remove and insert hard drives without having to power down the server, which optimizes server up-time.

Advanced Data Protection

The RD230 comes standard with advanced SATA RAID (0, 1, 5, 10), so you get advanced data protection right out of the box. Plus, with options for advanced SAS/SATA RAID available, you can set just the right balance between performance and capacity.
