Microserver Lenovo ThinkCenter M92/M92p Tiny

Reading time ~1 minute

刚刚入手了一台 Lenovo ThinkCenter M92/M92p Tiny测试机,虽然配置不高但是出于geek习惯,还是要动动螺丝刀的。下面是拆机过程,供参考。 [gallery columns=”2” link=”file” ids=”52429,52430,52431,52432,52433,52434,52435”]

这款机器目前在国内好像还没有正式买,起码联想中国官网上连技术指标也查不到。美国网站上是有这个机器的介绍。

At a Glance

我所测试的是M92 Tiny型。改机默认安装的Win8操作系统。如果把它改装为跑Hypervisor的服务器的话,它应该属于 Microserver的范畴。

微服务器定义:A micro server (may also be written as microserver or MicroServer) is a small server appliance that works like a server. Micro servers are off-the-shelf appliances that are designed for ease of installation and maintenance. A micro server will come with the operating system, hardware and software preinstalled and configured by the manufacturer. Some configuration functions of the micro server may be performed by the end-user through a touch panel and access to the server appliance is through a Web browser. A micro server is a popular choice for small- to medium-sized businesses that need a server but do not need a full-scale rack or tower server. Micro servers are also used by corporations that operate with minimal IT staff at local or branch offices. A micro server may also be called a server appliance.

接下来,我准备在这个机器上做些改动和测试。

  1. 如果有可能的话,更换硬盘为SSD硬盘,升级内存到最大两条8GB,共16GB

  2. 安装和测试XenClient:使用集中管理器,来更新本地硬盘的Widnows虚拟机操作系统

  3. 安装和测试XenServer:在上面跑XenDesktop的虚拟机,看看做多能达到多少个用户的密度,分别测试共享桌面和VDI桌面,看看共享桌面的密度会在这个机器上比VDI高几倍?

  4. 测试跑CloudStack的计算节点,试想如果实验室里面有一摞16个机器,都做在一个群集上,跑跑大数据Hadoop 应用,应该也是很好的使用场景
