Outstanding Storage Density Tremendous internal storage capacity and more I/O connectivity than ever before is the result of an innovative design on the ThinkServer RD650. With 26 drive bays and 74.4TB of internal storage capacity, the RD650 is great for storage-hungry applications such as databases, data analytics clusters, and video streaming.


The powerful processors, large memory capacity, and loads of storage, combined with multiple chassis types, RAID choices, and I/O options, make it easy to create the perfect RD650 configuration to run your business-critical applications. In addition to the standard 3.5- and 2.5-inch chassis, the RD650 offers a unique hybrid option with nine 3.5-inch and six 2.5- inch drive bays in the front and two 2.5-inch drive bays in the back— great for creating a tiered storage environment.


Data center cooling costs can be greater than the cost of powering the IT equipment itself. One way to reduce these cooling costs is by operating the data center at a higher temperature. With a dynamic environmental design, the RD650 can run continuously at 45 degrees Celsius— with no impact on reliability. In fact, the system has been carefully architected and tested to support long-term reliability. The RD650 is also perfect for organizations that install servers in less strictly controlled environments. Other high-reliability features include error correcting code (ECC) memory, hot-swap hard-disk drive and SSD capability, and hot-swap and redundant power and cooling.

What your total is $1380, and a z420 with a E5-1650 destroys this E5-2620 for half the price, granted its not a rack.

z420 is a workstation, how you compare a workstation to a Server?

In a single CPU environment E3 series will out perform an E5 mainly due to it's clock speed. However in a dual CPU environment, 2x E5-2620 (six-core) each with multi-threading, it out blows the E3 out of the water.

I also thought it was an E3, but its an E5-1650. Yes if you get two E5-2620 it would beat it out, but at half the cost you could also get two Z420s. At this price point for one CPU though, i'm more compelled to get the E5-1650 for $400-700.

People use the z420 as a server all the time..

youre talking about a v2 server compare to a full blown upgradeable server. There is like zero room for upgrade in that workstation. memory itself is at ddr3 level and cpu itself is totally not comparable to a E5-2620.

Aside from adding another CPU , i have no idea why you'd think the workstation is less upgradable... it has tons more room. Ram speed generally doesn't add much performance... and im not sure you're looking at the right benchmarks/comparisons if you think an E5-2620 beats a E5-1650... aside from power consumption.

I've sold, built, and fixed servers as well as customer and thousands of consumer computers. I know the margins and costs behind server grade. There's a big discrepancy between perceived 'server' performance, and these days even longevity. Servers are often retired way before they're going to die out if you're going to get the same or better performance for your workload on a workstation for less why not.


Anyways I'm just throwing out options for comparison, not arguing about needing full blown server hardware and paying extra for it. If you need it by all means.

I can use a old Pentium desktop as a server, doesn't mean that it can handle as much as this can. its a matter of scale if you need a real server to do VM with plenty of hot-swap storage, and the ability to keep most things in ram with up to 768 GB of ram. this is just a far different class of machine.

if someone need toyota prius for economy and no upgrade they go for that but if someone need a truck to haul stuff, they are going for a Chev/Ford/GMC to haul stuff. Prius isnt going to do an efficient job in a data center or business that has rackmount for servers. i guess this post is regarding rackmount servers so im thumbing up because its a good deal in its class (rack-mountable) not comparing it to laptop, clients, or toyota
