The TD330 comes in a tower case with space for two Xeon E5-2400 CPUs enabled by Intel's C600 chipset. Customers can purchase up to 192 GB of memory, as well as up to 24 TB of HDD space. The targets are SMBs with the goal to acquire a basic server and keep cost in check. Options for the server include SSD (200 GB and 400 GB) and HDD (500 GB to 2 TB SATA, 300 GB to 600 GB SAS) storage media, as well as DDR3 and DDR3L memory (4 GB to 16 GB).
The TD330 supports ThinkServer 300 RAID 5 and ThinkServer 500 RAID 1 and 10 adapters, with an option to add RAID 5 support to the ThinkServer 500 adapter as well as the top-end ThinkServer RAID 700.
The new servers start at $929.
