          Ordering Information

          Innovation is built in to the Lenovo ThinkServer RD550. A cleverly engineered design allows more storage density and I/O connectivity than ever before, effectively providing the performance and capacity of a 2U system in a 1U form factor. By creating smaller drive trays and a slightly larger chassis within the same 1U space, the RD550 offers a total of up to 12 bays, which can be used for data storage or increased performance.

          Two additional enterprise-class M.2 solid-state drives (SSDs) are available as an option for secure booting, as well as SD card options for hypervisor booting. Plus, for ultimate performance, the industry-unique Lenovo AnyBay design allows multiple storage types in the same drive bay, including front-accessible PCIe SSD.

          Leveraging the unique Lenovo AnyFabric design, the RD550 can house up to eight 10Gb Ethernet ports, all without taking up any of the available PCIe slots. If you include network adapters in the available slots, the RD550 can support an incredible amount of network bandwidth in a single 1U server.
