Implement with Confidence

Designed with small-to-medium businesses and remote/branch offices in mind, the Lenovo ThinkSystem DS2200 SAN array offers enterprise-class features at entry-level pricing, along with 99.999 percent availability and is powered by a Rapid Data Placement Engine to accomplish this.

The easy-to-use management interface makes complex administrative storage tasks simple, including setup with the Rapid Deployment Wizard, in less than 15 minutes. The same interface is used across the DS Series family, allowing for flexible IT administration.

The ThinkSystem DS2200 offers connectivity choices and impressive storage capacities. Choose between 12Gb SAS, 8/16Gb Fibre Channel (FC), or 1/10Gb iSCSI to integrate into your existing network. The DS2200 can hold up to 12x 3.5-inch or 24x 2.5-inch HDDs and SSDs internally, and supports up to 96 drives total (using three expansion units). The DS2200 also supports mixing LFF and SFF enclosures in the same array, providing the flexibility you need.

As your business grows, consider upgrading to the ThinkSystem DS4200 or DS6200 for higher performance, additional fabric support, more ports, and more expansion units. No data migration, reestablishing LUNs, or changing licenses is needed with this upgrade.

Uncompromising Value

The ThinkSystem DS2200 is perfect for deployment in companies that need advanced features at an affordable price. It’s ideal for workloads such as Web, file, and print serving; small databases, and other similar-sized workloads. The DS2200 is equipped with Rapid Tiering, high availability, thin provisioning, Rapid RAID Rebuild and other enterprise-class features. This provides your business with a solid foundation to grow, while delivering the best price for performance in its class.
