The optimal first server, powerful yet affordable
Powerful Yet Affordable
The Lenovo ThinkSystem ST50 provides an easily manageable, ideal first server for a small-to-medium-sized business, and remote or branch office, or retail environments looking to increase productivity. A value-optimized motherboard design paired with the latest Intel® Xeon® E-2200 processors provide a 2-digit percentage performance increase from the previous generation and offer an aggressive price point for the ThinkSystem ST50 versus high-end desktops, and with higher enterprise-level capabilities than a desktop alternative.
The space-saving form factor and dynamic capabilities of the ThinkSystem ST50 make it well suited for day-to-day computing, file management, printing, email, and web serving in distributed environments. Highly efficient fans keep the server cool and reduce noise in an office environment.
The ThinkSystem ST50 is designed with components common across the portfolio, high reliability, and essential scale-out capabilities for growing businesses. It features support for a GPU and both server and client operating systems.
In addition, flexible storage options include up to four 3.5-inch HDDs or a mixed HDD/SSD configuration. Plus, a unified 5.25-inch media bay extends the ThinkSystem ST50 capabilities for light business data backup as well.
Save time and reduce costs with Intel Active Management Technology (AMT), which monitors system health and prevents data disruption, while the USB version of Lenovo’s XClarity provisioning manager enables easy setup and firmware upgrades. The tool-free mechanical design enables faster access to key components so you can adapt the configuration as needs change.
The compact ThinkSystem ST50 excels at being inconspicuous in an office environment. Also, the ThinkSystem ST50 is whisper-quiet, enabling the server to blend into the background.
The energy-efficient qualities of the ThinkSystem ST50 include both the Intel® Xeon® E processor and TruDDR4 ECC memory, which reduce power consumption under standard workloads. Lenovo’s reliability means that along with energy cost savings, you can count on increased server uptime and workplace productivity.
