Did you know?

The ThinkServer TS460 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.

The ThinkServer Management Module built into the ThinkServer TS460 offers easy-to-use, enterprise-class manageability to monitor server availability and perform remote management.

The ThinkServer TS460 offers office-quiet acoustics, and it fits under or beside an office desk.

Key features

The ThinkServer TS460 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 ThinkServer TS460 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 ThinkServer TS460 provides many features to simplify serviceability and increase system uptime:

  • The server 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 ThinkServer Management Module (TMM) continuously monitors system parameters, sends alerts, and enables administrators to perform remote recovery actions to minimize downtime.
  • 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 ThinkServer TS460:

  •  ThinkServer Management Module 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 Platform Module (TPM) 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 ThinkServer TS460 offers the following energy-efficiency features to save energy, reduce operational costs, increase energy availability, and contribute to a green environment:

  • 80 PLUS Gold-certified power supplies enable greater energy savings while providing flexibility to meet your business needs.
  • 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.
