Lenovo takes on data analytics with ThinkCentre AIOs
Personal Computer (PC) demand in the Philippines is seen to grow steadily in the light of the growing global Big Data and Analytics market, which, according to IDC, will reach $125 billion in 2015. It is no wonder that the Philippines is quickly becoming a data analytics hub, with local business process outsourcing (BPO) realizing how Big Data and Analytics can help them arrive at good decisions and investing more on platforms and hardware to leverage on this.
Setting its sights on this trend, Lenovo has been developing a range of commercial PCs to address BPO firms’ security, privacy, energy management, and high speed data processing needs.
“As a global leader in providing innovative enterprise technology, Lenovo has a strong portfolio of commercial AlI-in-One computers with high processing power and security features ideal for all-day computing requirements. Lenovo has in fact developed new space-saving and energy efficient all-in-one (AIO) desktops including ThinkCentre M53 Tiny, ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One 23, and ThinkCentre E63z, to address the data-intensive needs of firms that operate 24/7 in space-constrained offices,” said Michael Ngan, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines.
ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One 23: Hybrid configurability and clutter-free work desks
With a unique hybrid configuration that offers a clean-desk computing experience, the Tiny-in-One 23 allows employees to configure their AlI-in-One (AIO) with a plethora of chipsets and CPUs based on data centers’ unique requirements.
Free of cable clutter, the Tiny-in-One 23 is designed for space-saving enabling data centers to efficiently mix and match the 23-inch AIO experience with any of the current ThinkCentre Tiny PCs which are sold separately, for separate traditional tower setup refresh cycles. Making seamless video and audio calls is also easy, thanks to the Tiny-in-One 23’s front-access USB 3.0 audio ports and brilliant 23-inch FHD display.
The ENERGY STAR certified Tiny-in-One 23 features a 90W 87% power supply unit, for better energy efficiency in data centers. It also has an ergonomic stand for tilt and height adjustment, so data center employees can have more flexibility in their computing tasks.
ThinkCentre M53 Tiny: High power and low carbon footprint
The ThinkCentre M53 Tiny’s Intelligent Cooling Engine (ICE) 3.0 balances thermals and acoustics, so employees can better work in hotter temperatures. It also allows system monitoring with thermal alerts that preempt overheating. Accredited with ENERGY Star 5.2, EPEAT Gold, and UL Environment Gold, the ThinkCentre M53 Tiny also features Desktop Power Manager to efficiently customize power settings and balance power consumption with system performance in data centers.
ThinkCentre E63z All-in-One: Optimal multi-tasking capacity and network security
With the ThinkCentre E63z’s view management utility, data center employees can simultaneously view multiple active displays and seamlessly switch between applications. This feature facilitates greater productivity when multi-tasking. The USB port disablement and Smart USB protection also minimize risks of unauthorized use of storage device and data theft in data centers.
Featuring powerful Intel Core i3 processors and a 19.5-inch display, the ThinkCentre E63z provides advanced security, manageability, and green environment capabilities while taking surprisingly little space on the desk at just 37.5 mm thick. The ThinkCentre E63z also supports an HDMI out port, card reader, and a Rapid Charge USB port, for enhanced connectivity in data centers. It is ENERGY STAR and GREENGUARD compliant, and also certified with EPEAT Silver, which allow BPO firms to keep their power consumption at bay with excellent power management tools like the Desktop Power Manager.
