Did you know?
Dynamic Racks enable you to receive your Lenovo solutions fully installed and integrated in the rack and ready to instantly deploy into your data center. Dynamic Racks are designed to affordably, safely, and securely handle shipping fully loaded configurations up to 950 kg (2,100 lbs), which can help to increase your efficiency by reducing the time and cost that is associated with typical server deployments. However, if you do not need to ship the rack fully loaded, Lenovo offers cost-effective Static offerings that are ideal when doing on-site integration.
