SMART PROTECTION. ROBUST PERFORMANCE.

 

Keeping data online 24/7 and preventing data loss requires smart solutions. Designed to enhance server uptime and maintain flexibility for future growth, Lenovo’s ThinkServer RAID options provide your business with cost-efficient solutions and powerful hardware RAID offerings. For a low-cost solution that efficiently and easily upgrades your server, the ThinkServer SATA RAID 5 is our best option. Designed specifically for our tower servers, this pluggable key provides robust data protection for up to 5TB of critical data. All this without taking up any PCIe slots!

Many applications and environments demand even higher reliability and availability without compromising on performance. That’s where ThinkServer hardware RAID solutions provide the best fit. Lenovo offers the ThinkServer RAID 500 adapter that can connect up to 8 internal SAS/SATA ports at a maximum interface speed of 6G bps. The ThinkServer RAID 700 adapter takes availability to a higher level. Not only does this RAID adapter provide hardware for RAID levels 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60, but it also provides 256MB cache and a battery kit for battery-backup, write-back cache. With RAID hardware solutions you get additional data protection should your server experience unscheduled outages.
