FEATURES

Scalability and performance

The RS160 offers numerous features to boost performance, improve scalability, and reduce costs:

    • The Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v5 improves productivity by offering affordable single-socket system performance with 4-core processors with up to 3.7 GHz core speeds and up to 8 MB cache.

    • Choice of processors with up to four cores to enable the effective use of multithreaded applications.

   • Intelligent and adaptive system performance with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 allows processor cores to run at maximum speeds during peak workloads by temporarily going beyond processor thermal design power (TDP).

   • Intel Hyper-Threading Technology boosts performance for multithreaded applications by enabling simultaneous multithreading within each processor core, up to two threads per core.

  • Intel Virtualization Technology integrates hardware-level virtualization hooks that allow operating system vendors to better use the hardware for virtualization workloads.

   • Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) technology significantly improves floating point performance for compute-intensive technical and scientific applications.

   • Up to four 2133 MHz DDR4 ECC UDIMMs provide speed, availability, and a capacity of up to 64 GB.

   • The server offers PCI Express 3.0 I/O expansion capabilities that increase the theoretical maximum bandwidth by almost 100% (8 GTps per link using 128b/130b encoding) compared to the PCI Express 2.0 (5 GTps per link using 8b/10b encoding).

   • With Intel Integrated I/O Technology, the PCI Express 3.0 controller is integrated into the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v5 product family.

   • Such integration reduces I/O latency and increases overall system performance.

   • Two 3.5-inch or four 2.5-inch non-hot-swap (NHS) drive bays provide sufficient internal storage capacity in a compact 1U form factor.

  • The use of solid-state drives (SSDs) instead of, or along with, traditional spinning drives (hard disk drives or HDDs) can significantly improve I/O performance.

Increased Performance

The Lenovo ThinkServer RS160 is an excellent entry-server for growing businesses. Featuring powerful Intel® processors and enterprise-class storage and networking, it offers up to 12Gbps data transfer rate as well as 2x the memory and 33 percent more internal storage capacity than its predecessor. The RS160 is ideal for web hosting, mail serving, file-and-print serving, video streaming, as well as a wide range of general-purpose productivity applications.

Built-in Value and Flexibility

The RS160 features a full line of powerful Intel processors, from Celeron to Xeon®, and up to 64GB of DDR4 memory. It provides business flexibility with multiple storage types and form factors, including up to 16TB of internal storage and 32GB of M.2 drive support for additional scalability. Multiple server OSes are available and the rack is available with 2-post and 4-post rail rack-mounting options.

Customer Friendly

Lenovo servers continue to be rated the most reliable x86 servers on the market and have the highest customer satisfaction.The RS160 is no exception. Its shallow chassis depth promotes greater in-rack airflow and it has an 80 Plus Gold-certified power supply. Easy-to-use Lenovo XClarity system management tools* provide business-class reliability and management to reduce costs and downtime. These are the same tools used on Lenovo’s high-end, two-socket rack systems.

Manageability and security

Powerful systems management features simplify local and remote management of the RS160:

 • The server includes ThinkServer Management Module to monitor server availability and perform remote management.

 • An integrated industry-standard Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) enables improved setup, configuration, and updates, and simplifies error handling.

 • The ThinkServer EasyStartup tool simplifies the process of configuring RAID and installing supported Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems, VMware hypervisors, and device drivers on a ThinkServer system.

 • An optional Trusted Platform Module (TPM) enables advanced cryptographic functionality, such as digital signatures and remote attestation.

 • Industry-standard Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (AES-NI) support improves the speed and strength of encryption.

 • Intel Execute Disable Bit functionality can help prevent certain classes of malicious buffer overflow attacks when combined with a supporting operating system.

 • Intel Trusted Execution Technology provides enhanced security through hardware-based resistance to malicious software attacks.

 • This enables an application to run in its own isolated space, protected from all other software running on a system.
