Lenovo Powers Small and Medium Businesses with New ThinkServer Tower Servers [Global Data Point]

(Global Data Point Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Lenovo today announced, at the Intel Developer Forum, two new tower servers, the ThinkServer TS140 and ThinkServer TS440. Armed with the latest Intel® Xeon E3 processors and Intel® AMT™ 9.0 for remote manageability, these affordable, whisper-quiet tower servers are designed for powerful performance and expansive scalability, ideal for small-to-medium-sized businesses and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) that require rich features and functionality at an attractive price point.

Equipped with the latest Intel® Xeon E3-1200 v3 processors, the ThinkServer TS140 and TS440 tower servers offer 15 percent faster performance than previous generations. The TS140 and TS440 also feature Intel® AMT™ 9.0 to provide outstanding remote manageability tools for easy and efficient server maintenance. Intel's AMT technology is certified with popular MSP ecosystem management consoles like N-Able, Level Platforms and Kasaya, enabling MSPs to manage end-user networks remotely and more cost effectively.

ThinkServer TS140: Powerful, Reliable and Unmatched Value Powerful yet affordable, the ThinkServer TS140 offers unmatched value. Built for first server use cases and where a quiet system is needed, the TS140 is significantly quieter, has twice the I/O expansion, and offers more RAID options and storage capacity than its predecessor. It uses the latest Intel Xeon® E3 processors and has up to 4 disk bays supporting up to four 4TB disks. The TS140 provides outstanding remote manageability with Intel® AMT® 9.0, KVM diagnostics and repair. Businesses who prefer environmentally friendly and efficient technology will like the optional 92 percent efficiency Power Supply Unit and that the TS140 uses 65 percent post-consumer recycled plastic. Coupled with its compact, quiet chassis design, the ThinkServer TS140 is ideal for retail deployments or use in front offices.

ThinkServer TS440: A Highly Affordable, Feature-Rich Server Combining server reliability and expansive scalability, the TS440 delivers powerful, enterprise-grade performance for SMBs requiring a server that grows with their business over time. The TS440 is a highly affordable, feature-rich server that offers industry-leading performance, strong data protection and whisper quiet operation. The TS440 offers the reliability needed for business with optional redundant power supplies, up to 32TB of storage, advanced hardware RAID and chassis intrusion alert. 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.

Preview: New ThinkServers with Intel Ivy Bridge Technology Also at Intel Developer Forum, Lenovo previewed its next generation 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.

Quotes: "Lenovo is very focused on SMB customers and we recognize their unique IT challenges. They require enterprise-grade server capabilities in a form factor and cost bracket that works for them,' said Roy Guillen, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Product Group, Lenovo. "The ThinkServer TS140 and TS440 provide outstanding performance, exceptional remote manageability and powerful data protection in an environmentally friendly package ideal for SMBs and MSPs.' "Lenovo's ThinkServer TS140 and TS440 benefits from our latest Intel technologies for MSPs and SMBs who need enterprise-grade tower servers that are powerful, easy to manage and highly scalable,' said Shannon Poulin, vice president and general manager, Intel Datacenter Marketing Group. "Working with Lenovo, we believe our latest Intel® Xeon E3 processors and Intel® AMT 9.0 solution delivers a compelling combination of performance and remote manageability for small businesses and distributed office environments.'

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
