Lenovo ThinkSystem ST50 Tower Server
The optimal first server
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-2100 processors offer an aggressive price point for the 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 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 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” HDDs or a mixed HDD/SSD configuration. Plus, a unified 5.25” media bay extends the 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 ST50 excels at being inconspicuous in an office environment. Also, the ST50 is whisper-quiet, enabling the server to blend into the background.
The energy-efficient qualities of the 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.
