Lenovo ThinkServer TD350 review
Lenovo’s ThinkServer TD350 tower server delivers a radical redesign and a big hardware package for the price
Big storage capacity
The 16-drive server on review can be upgraded to 32 SFF bays on demand. Lenovo advised us that the kit for this includes two more 8-bay hot-swap cages, a dedicated 720ix AnyRAID adapter and a PCI-Express SAS interposer card.
An optional dual SD card module can be used as a boot device although it connects via the USB bus so can only be RAIDed within the OS. You can also add a dual M.2 Flash module which has capacitor protection and support for hardware managed mirrors making it a better choice for hypervisor redundancy.
The TD350 gets you out of the starting blocks at a cracking pace as the review system was supplied with dual 8-core 2.6GHz E5-2630 v3 Xeons. The price provided to us by ServersPlus (www.serversplus.com) also includes a decent 64GB of DDR4 memory expandable to 512GB and five 300GB SAS SFF hard disks.
The embedded TDM makes light work of storage configuration and OS deployment
