LENOVO THINKSTATION C30 LSI STORAGE CONTROLLER DRIVER
June 28th, by Mark Kidd Lenovo ThinkStation D30 Review The ThinkStation D30 is Lenovo's Lenovo ThinkStation C30 LSI Storage Controller powerful workstation on the market and is configurable with up to two 8-core Intel Xeon E processors as well as serious specifications to support performance-intensive applications ranging from 3D modeling to oil and gas extraction. Currently, an increasing variety of storage solutions are being designed to support workstation applications in fields such as architecture, engineering, manufacturing, digital content creation, and natural resources engineering.
In-host storage arrays also require robust specs to avoid getting bogged down. The ThinkStation D30 configuration that Lenovo provided the StorageReview lab offers just about everything for which a high-power desktop user could ask.
Starting with the chassis, Lenovo ThinkStation C30 LSI Storage Controller find that it is reasonably flexible and well built, as expected from a Lenovo client machine. The installed dual Intel EW processors ensure the CPU Lenovo ThinkStation C30 LSI Storage Controller likely never slow down the storage, and they also offer plenty of power for storage that can leverage the CPU for ideal performance. With support for up to GB of RAM and a range of other upgrades, we also have the flexibility to reconfigure the D30 for enhanced performance or connectivity when necessary for a review.
In addition to these internal storage bays, the ThinkStation D30 includes one card reader bay and three optical drive bays. Lenovo has designed the D30 for tool-less chassis access, which streamlines common upgrade, customization, and maintenance tasks.
Design and Build The Lenovo D30 has a solid black metal casing with a sleek yet robust design that exudes its presence as a powerful machine. The front features an expansive honeycomb grill design offering plenty of ventilation for the included hardware.

The three optical bays, two USB 2. Inputs and outputs including microphone and headphone connectors, as well as an optional Firewire port are also front and center. Branding is the lone adornment below.
On top of the case, Lenovo has attached a solid plastic handle for Lenovo ThinkStation C30 LSI Storage Controller transport when deploying workstations in an office environment, which definitely comes in handy given the machine's weight. Both sides have the Lenovo branding subtly stamped into the metal, and one side has the lockable latch to open the case for maintenance and upgrades. Squeezing the cover latch and then lifting up and out provides internal access to the hardware. The rear of the case features the bulk of the connectivity as well as active cooling for components inside the workstation.

There are audio line-in, line-out, and microphone connectors on the rear panel. The power supply sits at the top with two indicator lights and beneath that is a large cooling fan. Both of those grilles feature honeycomb cut-outs to match the front of the case. Looking at case functionality, the Lenovo is designed for easy maintenance and upgrades. For instance, with the chassis cover removed, the front bezel can be removed by releasing two plastic tabs on the left side and then pivoting the bezel outward. The PCI card retainer lifts up, Lenovo ThinkStation C30 LSI Storage Controller pivots away from the mainboard. The case also includes keys to lock it on the side to prevent un-authorized access once the system has been deployed in a particular environment. This larger environment allows us to enhance reviews of storage products that are intended to support content creation and high-end consumer applications by running additional compatibility tests in a variety of system configurations.
The specs of the Lenovo enable us to efficiently tackle fresh-to-market products. Our goal is to comprehensively create the same kind of environment in which products will ultimately be installed. Another goal as we transition into using the ThinkStation D30 is having a stock platform that is easily duplicated by manufacturers or companies interested in replicating our exact testing environment. Piecing together a shopping list of hardware components and matching firmware versions is much more involved than buying an off-the-shelf system.
As we work towards future hardware validation, having an easy-to-replicate testing Lenovo ThinkStation C30 LSI Storage Controller is paramount. While the mouse and keyboard handle their jobs just fine, the monitor is what really stands out. The two speakers 3w each are on the bottom of the monitor underneath the power and configuration buttons, and on the top of the monitor are the microphones and camera as well as an ambient light sensor that adjusts backlighting. The camera features a sliding plastic piece that doubles to power itself off and keep itself free from dust.
Increasing functionality, a female USB 3. Conclusion The Lenovo D30 offers a versatile range of configurations that can perform at an extremely high level. With these specs, the D30 is able to keep up with whatever storage we need to test in it without bottlenecking potential performance.
The case also offers significant physical room to allow for plenty of upgrades and easy access for maintenance, as well as a load of connectivity, front and rear. On top of this, the case has a low-frills, high functionality design that suits its intended use cases. Lenovo ThinkStation C30 LSI Storage Controller high performance workstation has an important role across many industries that has not diminished, even as currently available technologies for workstation platforms continue to achieve higher performance and greater options for connectivity.
The Lenovo D30 is a strong example of this platform. LSI RAID card support for ThinkStation S30, C30, and D30 platforms To download the Driver firmware update for the card, please visit.
