3Think Enterprise Think Flexible Ahead Refresh Your ThinkingThink EnterpriseThinkFlexibleAheadReliableThinkServer products you can trustProven "Think’innovation for your growing businessPurposefully designed products for a software-defined ageSpeaker notesWe plan to make a big splash with this launch, hence our tag line “Refresh Your Thinking.” With solid differentiators, we will have sales reps rethinking the way they sell ThinkServers and the way they look at PC+. We will also be rethinking the reach of our audience as our portfolio grows in positive ways.Pillars conveyPillars reflect key customer pain points that we will address with our products. The key words chosen should resonate with our customers while conveying action and emotion and drive an affinity with our products.Optimized for your workload – DYNAMIC (differentiation in packaging)Can it do the job CREDIBLY and CONFIDENTLY – Think READYProvides return on investment (Cost, OpEx, CapEx, ROI, TCO) enabling customers to think about their businessWays to refresh your thinking:ThinkServer Audience statement: Lenovo wants to target an audience that is open to change, a little younger/more flexible. Refresh your thinking about Lenovo’s audience. (Maybe not the classic, stodgy, Glass tower IT Manager – Stuck in their ways.Customer statement: Refresh your thinking – consider or reconsider Lenovo. Enterprise statement that we are now a player.Sales statement: Refresh your thinking about selling ThinkServer. We offer more with Grantley. A No Excuses Portfolio. With new PC+ sales requirement in some GEOs how can ThinkServer increase rep payout?IBM/Lenovo statement: Refresh your thinking about how these two companies will operate together.Continuous operation in a fresh air environment (113F/45C)Pillar #1: Think Enterprise Notes on ASHRAE A4 Standards and ReliabilityComponent choice and system design allow the 3 servers (RD550, RD650 and TD350) to operate at a higher temperature than ever before. In many parts of the world, these servers can run in a “fresh air” environment with no need for air conditioning. ASHRAE (formerly the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers) publishes guidelines and standards for temperatures in data centers (among other standards) and this ThinkServer temperature spec meets the ASHRAE A4 standard. The A4 standard allows operation of up to 113 F (45 C) and 90% humidity.In addition to cost savings from using less electricity for air conditioning, this robust design can allow the server to sustain temporary spikes in temperature with no loss of performance. Lenovo ThinkServer is industry leading to meet this standard.Our Gen-5 products provide many engineering examples of what makes ThinkServer flexible….whether it was creating a T-shaped chassis to fit more bays to increase storage capacity, or fitting more ports to increase I/O, or increasing the depth of a product to get a density advantage over our competitors…Pillar #2: Think Flexible Notes on Product AdvancesRD650: The hybrid chassis allows large slower 4TB HDD and smaller fast drives in the same server. RD650 can have 8x 2.5” bays and 9x 3.5” bays. RD550 can have 2x 2.5” bays and 4x 3.5” bays. This provides multiple tiers of storage in the same server for applications like database acceleration.20 network ports in a 1U platform. 1U RD550 can have 3 PCIe slots and 2 mezz cards. If each of these is populated with a quad port 1Gb NIC, it would be 20 network ports (3+2=5, 5 x 4 = 20). This could also apply to dual port 10Gb NICs, so the server could support up to 100Gb! Storage capacity-Other server vendors provide up to 10 drives in a 1U server. RD550 supports 12 drives, so 20% more than the other guys.RD550: The 1U RD550 has TWO network mezzanine cards and the TD350 has TWO RAID mid-plane daughter-cards.TD350: HP has a max of 24 drives in the ML350e (value) or ML350p (performance). Their chassis is 5U and the depth is just about the same as the depth of our 4U TD350. Because our chassis is 4U with similar depth, this gives us a 67% density advantage over HP (they are 24 / 5 or 4.8 drives per U, we are 32/4 or 8 drives per U... 8/4.8 = 1.667…67% better). Dell has 32 drives in 5U…we have a 25% density advantage over Dell. NOTE: it is possible that 32 drives will not be supported at SS…coming in a later block release.The market has changed and everyone is moving to a software-defined infrastructure. We’ve seen quite a few trends to back this up, and we illustrate how Lenovo is uniquely positioned to come out ahead.Pillar #3: Think Ahead NotesTrends we’re seeing1) Server and storage hardware is becoming standardizedLenovo provides open standards which allows customers ultimate choice and flexibility2) Software value growing separate from the hardwareLenovo provides more flexibility for you to use the SW of your choice3) HP, Dell, Cisco (and IBM) have huge HW businesses under stressLenovo does not have a legacy networking or storage businesses to protectWe can embrace SW-defined solutions in addition to legacy solutions4) HP, Dell, Cisco (and IBM) pushing integrated systemsto hide underlying collapsing system pricingto create lock inThinkServer is the opposite – openHow Lenovo ThinkServer is DifferentOur designs are perfect to host server, network and storage virtualizationOur open business model goes hand in hand with Business Partners and CustomersOur business model is built around making things – hardware (To drive this home, we can also talk about how we’ve brought manufacturing back to NA, so that products are US built, etc)Industry-leading thermal design for continuous operation (113F/45C - ASHRAE A4 standard compliant)Product advances such as hybrid-storage configuration, dense 12-drive 1U chassis and 4U tower with up to 90TB of internal storagePerfectly blended innovation and standardization in Gen-5 products2014 LENOVO.
