Both ESAC and AGM suffered from similar technology issues facing nonprofits with limited resources: aging technology, need for consolidation, space concerns and pressing performance issues. These technology issues were intruding on their ability to help the people they serve.
Running a busy nonprofit requires a robust server solution. Consider the needs of ESAC: their TD230 serves as an Active Directory Controller, File Server and Remote Access Server. It needs to be easily remotely managed by an RMM tool such as N-Central or GFI Max. ESAC runs Microsoft Small Business Server 2008 and requires 64 bit hardware and a minimum of 12GB memory. ESAC’s network needs to be remotely managed — freeing resources to support their core non-profit activities. Decrepit hardware will be retired and information assets will be protected by redundant disks and off-site backup. The TD230 server may also be used for telephony services. A hefty workload perfect for a powerful, highly scalable TD230 server solution.
The ThinkServer™ TD230 tower server award eased the burden of an upgrade investment and addressed their most immediate needs:
A high-performance server able to run most lines of business applications. More processing power without increased energy costs. Outstanding storage and memory capacity, to grow as your business needs grow. Plus, powerful remote manageability tools to help you manage the server, even if it’s switched off. If you’re looking for a flexible and powerful all-in-one solution, the Lenovo ThinkServer TD230 is it.
