Because the RD450 uses DDR4 memory, you get up to a 50 percent boost in performance and up to a 45 percent increase in power savings over previous generation memory—enabling your applications to run faster and more efficiently. These gains, coupled with the RD450’s highly flexible design, make it perfect for your infrastructure, collaboration and line-of-business applications, as well as web serving or hosting.

    Generous Storage

    The Lenovo ThinkServer RD450 offers generous storage capacity and flexible configuration options to create the right system for your needs. This server is ideal for small-to-medium sized businesses because of its large, cost-effective storage capacity. Dual SD card options are also available to support hypervisor booting. The ThinkServer RD450 2.5-inch configuration leverages the Lenovo AnyRAID design, allowing the use of your choice of RAID adapter without consuming a PCIe slot. For more protection and performance, upgrade your ThinkServer RAID adapter for additional RAID levels and flash-backed cache.

    Centrally automate discovery, inventory tracking, real-time monitoring, fault detection, and alert handling over the lifecycle of your servers with Lenovo XClarity, a best-in-class enterprise management tool. A mobile option enables you to securely monitor your systems from Android and iOS devices.
