The TS440 is environmentally friendly with optional 92% efficiency Power Supply Units. The systems are easily managed with industry standard Intel AMT 9.0 with hardware monitor and remote control capability. Like the TS140, the TS440 also uses 65 percent post-consumer recycled plastic.
Also at Intel Developer Forum, Lenovo previewed its ThinkServer rack servers, powered with Intel Ivy Bridge technology. These 2P mainstream servers provide organizations the compute-intensive performance required for virtualization, web or database server workloads. These new servers also feature Lenovo Smart Grid, which uses the latest Intel Node Manager Technology and allows IT administrators to reduce datacenter costs with policy-based power management for networks up to 1,000 nodes. The Ivy Bridge-enabled ThinkServer rack servers are expected to announce in the fall of 2013.
The ThinkServer TS140 is available beginning in September starting at $421; the TS440 is available beginning in September starting at $679.
