Did you know?

The ThinkSystem ST50 offers enterprise-class reliability features such as error correcting code (ECC) memory, the onboard RAID controller, and enterprise-class hard drives and network adapters at an affordable price. The server has Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) built-in, along with support for industry-standard management tools. The ST50 runs a wide range of server operating systems plus support for Windows 10, and is quiet enough and small enough to fit under or beside an office desk.

Key features

The ThinkSystem ST50 server is an office-friendly tower server that has been optimized to provide enterprise-class features to small businesses, retail, educational institutions and branch offices.

Scalability and performance

The ST50 offers numerous features to boost performance, improve scalability, and reduce costs:

  • The Intel Xeon E-2100 Series processors improves productivity by offering affordable single-socket system performance with 6-core processors with up to 3.8 GHz core speeds.
  • 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 2666 MHz DDR4 ECC or non-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 E-2100 Series processors. Such integration reduces I/O latency and increases overall system performance.
  • Up to four non-hot-swap (NHS) drive bays supporting hard disk drives (HDDs) or solid-state drives (SSDs) provide flexible internal storage capacity.
  • The use of SSDs instead of, or along with, traditional spinning drives (hard disk drives or HDDs) can significantly improve I/O performance.

Availability and serviceability

The ST50 provides many features to simplify serviceability and increase system uptime:

  • The ST50 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 based on Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) 12.0 which continuously monitors system parameters, sends alerts, and enables administrators to perform remote recovery actions to minimize downtime.
  • The Lenovo XClarity Provisioning Manager Lite tool can be used to install an operating system on the server and perform system diagnostics.
  • 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 ST50:

  • Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) 12.0 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.
  • An integrated hardware Trusted Platform Module (TPM) supporting TPM 2.0 and 1.2 enables advanced cryptographic functionality, such as digital signatures and remote attestation.
  • Administrator and power-on passwords help protect from unauthorized access to the server.
  • An intrusion switch on the cover of the server and padlock loop at the rear of the server help detect and prevent unauthorized physical access to the internal components of the server .
  • A slot for a Kensington-style cable lock helps prevent theft.

Energy efficiency

The ST50 offers the following energy-efficiency features to save energy, reduce operational costs, increase energy availability, and contribute to a green environment:

  • 80 PLUS Platinum-certified power supply (select models) enables 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 ThinkSystem Capacity 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.

Memory options

The ST50 server supports Lenovo TruDDR4 memory. TruDDR4 memory uses the highest-quality components sourced from Tier 1 DRAM suppliers and only memory that meets strict requirements is selected. It is compatibility-tested and tuned to maximize performance and reliability.

TruDDR4 memory has a unique signature programmed into the DIMM, which enables ThinkSystem servers to verify whether the memory installed is qualified and supported. From a service and support standpoint, TruDDR4 memory automatically assumes the system's warranty, and service and support provided worldwide.

The ST50 supports up to 4 DIMMs. The processors have 2 memory channels and support 2 DIMMs per channel.

All DIMMs operate at a speed of 2666 MHz. However, if the processor selected has a lower memory bus speed (eg 2400 MHz - see the Processor table), then all DIMMs will operate at that lower speed.

The following table lists the memory options that are available for the ST550 server.

The following rules and recommendations apply when selecting the memory configuration:

  • The server only supports UDIMMs
  • Mixing of ECC and non-ECC DIMMs is not supported.
  • All DIMMs must be identical. Mixing DIMMs is not supported.
  • For best performance when installing two DIMMs, install one in each memory channel

Internal storage

The ST50 supports up to four 3.5-inch non-hot-swap drives plus two SD Cards for internal storage.

The non-hot-swap drive bays are as follows:

  • Three drive bays dedicated to 3.5-inch HDDs or SSDs
  • One 5.25-inch media drive bay which can hold a fourth 3.5-inch HDDs or SSDs

The location of these bays is shown in the following figure. The ST50 drive option part numbers include the SATA cable and power cable needed to connect the drive to the onboard SATA controller on the system board.

  • Adapter that supports two SD Cards
  • Bracket to mount the adapter to the side of bays 1 and 2
  • Cable to connect the adapter to the system board

* Configure-to-order only; Not available as a field upgrade

The server also supports 1 or 2 SD Cards that are installed in an adapter, 4M17A12095 as listed in the table. The adapter is mounted on the side of drive bays 1 and 2 as shown in the figure above. The SD Cards can be used as boot devices or are accessible to the operating system as drives (JBOD). The adapter does not offer any RAID functionality.

Controllers for internal storage

The ST50 has an onboard 6Gbps SATA controller with 4 connections on the system board for the 4 internal drive bays. These ports can be used in either AHCI (JBOD) mode or RSTe (RAID) mode. RSTe mode supports RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10.

Virtualization support: The SATA ports can be used with virtualization hypervisors, including VMware ESXi, Linux KVM, Xen, and Microsoft Hyper-V, however support is limited to AHCI (non-RAID) mode. RSTe mode is not supported with virtualization hypervisors.

Advanced RAID support or HBA support is available with the addition of a RAID adapter or HBA as listed in the following table. The HBA is needed when an internal LTO tape drive is installed.

Systems management

ST50 models with Intel Xeon E processors support Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) 12.0 which provides out-of-band, hardware-based advanced system control, monitoring, alerting, and remote presence functions.

ST50 models with Core i3, Pentium, or Celeron 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 the following feature:

  • KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) redirection

Note: KVM redirection requires an Intel Xeon E processor with integrated graphics.

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.

Both 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 standard Gigabit Ethernet port, 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)

Note: The ST50 server does not have an XClarity Controller (XCC) management processor
