Did you know?

The TS450 offers enterprise-class reliability features such as error correcting code (ECC), hot-swap components, and advanced RAID protection with flexible storage configurations at an affordable price.

Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) built into the TS450 offers easy-to-use, industry-standard management tools for remote monitoring, updates, and repairs.

The TS450 runs a wide range of server operating systems, and it also supports client OS capability.

Key features

The ThinkServer TS450 server is a tower server that has been optimized to provide enterprise-class features to growing small-to-medium-sized businesses, retail stores, and distributed enterprises.

Scalability and performance

The TS450 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.
  • 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.
  • Up to four 2133 MHz DDR4 ECC UDIMMs provide speed and 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.
  • Up to 16x 2.5-inch, or 8x 3.5-inch, or a combination of 8x 2.5-inch and 4x 3.5-inch hot-swap (HS) drive bays, including support for 2.5-inch SSDs in a 3.5-inch conversion tray, provide flexible internal storage configurations and capacity.
  • 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.

Availability and serviceability

The TS450 provides many features to simplify serviceability and increase system uptime:

  • The TS450 supports UDIMM memory with ECC protection which provides error correction not available in PC-class "servers" that use parity memory. Avoiding system crashes (and data loss) due to soft memory errors means greater system uptime.
  • Tool-less cover removal provides easy access to upgrades and serviceable parts, such as memory and adapter cards.
  • A choice of affordable onboard SATA RAID or advanced hardware RAID redundancy offers data protection and greater system uptime.
  • The use of SSDs can provide better reliability than the use of traditional HDDs, for greater uptime.
  • Built-in Active Management Technology continuously monitors system parameters, sends alerts, and enables administrators to perform remote recovery actions to minimize downtime.
  • The ThinkServer EasyUpdate firmware update tool enables you to keep your server firmware up-to-date and helps you avoid unnecessary server outages.
  • The ThinkServer Diagnostics software speeds up troubleshooting tasks to reduce service time.
  • One-year or three-year customer-replaceable unit (CRU) and onsite limited warranty with next business day response. Optional service upgrades are available.

Manageability and security

Powerful systems management features simplify local and remote management of the TS450:

  • Active Management Technology monitors server availability and enables administrators to 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.
  • Optional Trusted Cryptographic Module (TCM) (available only in China) enables advanced cryptographic functionality, such as digital signatures and remote attestation.
  • Administrator's and power-on passwords help protect from unauthorized access to the server.
  • Optional server locks such as a padlock, cable lock, or lockable front cover help prevent unauthorized access to the internal components of the server, and the intrusion switch (select models) informs about the removed or improperly installed server cover.

Energy efficiency

The TS450 offers the following energy-efficiency features to save energy, reduce operational costs, increase energy availability, and contribute to a green environment:

  • Energy-efficient planar components help lower operational costs.
  • 80 PLUS Platinum-certified or Gold-certified power supplies enable greater energy savings while providing flexibility to meet your business needs.
  • Intelligent Cooling Engine (ICE) actively monitors component temperatures in real-time and optimally adjusts the speeds of the fans to keep the system cooler and quieter.
  • The ThinkServer Power Planner tool provides information about the power consumption and electric current calculation for the different configurations of servers and other devices, which helps plan deployment of servers and devices in an efficient way.
  • Intel Intelligent Power Capability powers individual processor elements on and off as needed, to reduce power draw.

Systems management

The ThinkServer TS450 models with Intel Xeon E3-1200 v5 processors support Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) which provides out-of-band, hardware-based advanced system control, monitoring, alerting, and remote presence functions. The TS450 models with Intel Core i3 or Pentium processors support Intel Standard Manageability (ISM), which is a subset of the AMT features.

Both AMT and ISM offer the following features:

  • Out-of-band management
  • System health and status monitoring
  • System event log and alerting
  • Hardware inventory
  • Boot device selection
  • Remote power control
  • Serial over LAN
  • IDE/USB Redirect for mounting remote media

In addition, AMT supports KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) redirection (KVM redirection requires an Intel Xeon E3-1200 v5 processor with integrated graphics).

Important: Health monitoring, event log, alerts, hardware inventory, boot device selection, and remote power control features are accessible out-of-band with a web browser. Serial over LAN, IDE/USB Redirect, and KVM redirection features require third-party tools that are not supplied or supported by Lenovo.

AMT and ISM operate independently of the server and remain operational even if the server is powered off. Out-of-band management is performed through the Ethernet port 0, which is a shared port for data and management.

AMT and ISM support the following management protocols:

  • DASH 1.1
  • WS-MAN
  • SNMP Platform Event Traps (PET)

AMT and ISM support the following management user interfaces:

  • Web browser
  • A third-party platform management software, including but not limited to the following tools:
    • RealVNC Viewer Plus (for remote KVM)
    • Intel Platform Solution Manager (for comprehensive support of AMT features)

Lenovo offers the following software tools that can help you set up, use, and maintain the server at no additional cost:

  • ThinkServer EasyStartup

    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.

  • ThinkServer EasyUpdate

    The ThinkServer EasyUpdate firmware update tool enables you to maintain your server firmware up-to-date and helps you avoid unnecessary server outages.

  • ThinkServer Diagnostics

    The ThinkServer Diagnostics software speeds up troubleshooting tasks to reduce service time.
