Lenovo 2U server sports 12 CPU cores and tons of storage
We tested the Lenovo ThinkServer RD630 in our network operations center cabinet at nFrame in Carmel, Ind., and found that it fits the bill if you're looking for a powerful, versatile 1/2U server.
The biggest limitation, we found, is that the standard sample we were sent has just two or three (depending on configuration options chosen) Gigabit Ethernet ports, which may limit its usefulness in high-traffic environments unless optional Ethernet cards are installed.
The basic kit includes the server, rack rails, power cord, and DVDs with software and guides. The rack rails looked a little flimsy, but surprisingly they installed in seconds, snap snap, repeat. The instructions said to use two people to attach the server, but one of us, the gutsy one, lifted the RD630 perilously onto the extended rails, went snap snap, repeat, and the 2U server unit was attached, and ready to slam back into the cabinet.
