Lenovo Storage

Lenovo offers CD-Rom Drives, Diskette Drives, Harddisk Drives and Memory Key compatible to you Lenovo Thinkcentre and Thinkpads.

CD-Rom Drives

• Improved software helps save installation time, now requiring only one reboot versus the six needed to install all of the included software with previous versions of this drive.

• Bundled with a comprehensive software package to help you get the most out of your drive including: WinDVD Creator for editing/authoring your own videos, WinDVD for DVD Video playback, RecordNow for burning CDs and DVDs and SimpleBackup for backing up your data**.

• Buffer underrun protection helps prevent write errors and wasted media to help save you time and money.

• When you integrate a ThinkCentre accessory into a ThinkCentre desktop computer that lists the accessory as a supported one (check compatibility), it's covered under the ThinkCentre system's limited warranty; on specific models, this can provide a longer warranty period for the accessory.

Rigorous testing proves our accessories meet the highest standards so you can be certain of top quality.

• Backed by renowned IBM Service and Support.

Harddisk

As you add applications and data, you might need to add more storage capability to handle the load. Increase your hard drive capacity with a larger primary system hard drive.

Diskette

Super-slim, lightweight, sturdy, and attractive USB-attached diskette drive takes its power requirements from the USB port. No external power adapter is required making this diskette drive fully mobile. The USB Portable Diskette Drive reads and writes 1.44MB diskette media and 720KB. Industry standard USB connectivity offers convenient connectivity to the most laptops and desktops with a functional USB port

Flash Drives

Seagate Storage

When it comes to data management, small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) often have the same concerns as Fortune 2000 companies, but fewer resources with which to address them. Unlike larger companies, most SMBs do not have on-site security officers or data storage professionals. In these companies, data storage and management responsibilities are often left to a very busy IT staff member.

Whether your business is a two-person operation or you have just hired your 100th employee, your data needs are continually growing. Customer databases, email, financial data, marketing

and support materials increase at an amazing rate. The longer you wait to implement a data management plan, the greater the risk and cost to your business.

What You Can Do Now

Managing your data isn't difficult, but it shouldn't be left to chance. A well-designed and easy-to-maintain plan can go a long way in protecting your company.

Backups—Catastrophic data losses can be avoided by having a good backup plan. Deciding how often you should back up your data depends on how valuable your data is. If you lost a week's worth of data, how would that impact your business? A day's worth?

An hour's? Once you've decided how often you need to back up your data you can choose between internal mirrored drives or external storage. As part of your plan, you should consider maintaining a regular backup outside your local region to protect your data in case of a catastrophic regional event.

Reliability—Make sure the data storage solutions you select come with solid warranties, have high MTBF (mean time between failure) ratings and are backed by an experienced vendor.


Security— Security means more than just erecting a firewall. Make sure that your employees use strong passwords that are

 

changed on a regular basis and aren't shared with other employees. In addition, mobile computers and devices should be encrypted in case of loss or theft. Full-disk-encryption (FDE) solutions encript data on the disk as it's being written—the ideal way to prevent unauthorized access to data on a lost or stolen laptop. FDE solutions also simplify the process of wiping the drive clean of data when the equipment is retired or repurposed.

WDC Storage Features
 

WDC Storage

Quality, durability and reliability can be built into our products only when we control every aspect of their creation. So, we design the drives, we manufacture them and we test them. We even design and test the packaging used to ship them.

We control every design and production step. We do it all.

Extreme Technology Requires Extreme Care

In 1974, the flying height of a recording head over a hard disk was equivalent to a commercial aircraft flying at 15 centimeters. Today, that equivalent altitude has been reduced to just 5 millimeters. The drive head now has to withstand repeated vertical accelerations of 300 Gs and lateral accelerations

of 1000 Gs. What's more, whereas the jet is designed for 60,000 takeoffs and landings, we design the heads for 100,000,accelerations of 300 Gs and lateral accelerations of 1000 Gs. What's more, whereas the jet is designed for 60,000 takeoffs and landings, we design the heads for 100,000.

Testing is Tough

How tough is it? Our newly launched WD Scorpio 2.5-inch EIDE drives were performance-tested continuously over four days while they were shaken and struck with a hammer every ten seconds - more than 34,000 times.

D team members are dedicated to testing drives - ensuring they adhere to rigorous quality standards covering hundreds of performance characteristics. About 1,000 PCs in WD's Functional Integrity Testing (FIT) lab put WD drives through the paces around the clock.

Other groups up the ante, simulating extreme real-world conditions including high and low temperatures, electronic and magnetic interference and even torturous drop testing. Only after a new drive family passes these rigorous tests does it get shipped to you.

It Works in Your System

Although our drives are designed to meet or exceed industry standards, we take compatibility testing a step further by making sure our drives work flawlessly with the operating systems that run virtually all new PCs. So when we say our drive is compatible – we mean it.

RoHS and WEEE Compliant

D products manufactured and sold worldwide after August 1, 2005, meet or exceed Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliance requirements as mandated by the European

Union for electrical and electronic products. The RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC of the European Parliament, which was effective in the EU beginning July 1, 2006, aims to protect human health and the environment by restricting the use of certain hazardous substances in new equipment, and consists of restrictions on lead, mercury, cadmium, and other substances.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive was developed to minimize the disposal of electrical and electronic equipment into landfills. WD hard drive products and packaging include the WEEE symbol in support of this directive
