ThinkSystem M.2 Drives and M.2 Adapters
Product Guide
M.2 is a solid-state drive (SSD) form factor primarily used as an operating system boot solution. Lenovo
ThinkSystem servers support M.2 drives with the addition of a supported M.2 adapter.
The M.2 drives install into an M.2 adapter which in turn is installed in a dedicated slot on the system board
of the ThinkSystem server. With two M.2 drives configured, the drives are configured by default as a RAID-
1 mirrored pair for redundancy.
There are two M.2 adapters supported:
Single M.2 Adapter, which supports one M.2 drive; available as the ThinkSystem M.2 Enablement
Kit
Dual M.2 Adapter, which supports one or two M.2 drives; available as the ThinkSystem M.2 with
Mirroring Enablement Kit
Tip: The M.2 adapters are also referred to as enablement kits. In the product publications, they are
referred to as M.2 backplanes. These terms are interchangable.
A Dual M.2 Adapter with one 128GB M.2 drive partially inserted is shown in the following figure. The
second M.2 drive is installed on the other side of the adapter.

Did you know?
The Dual M.2 Adapter features a Lenovo patented design that provides a tool-less method for attaching
back-to-back M.2 modules to the adapter.
The Dual M.2 Adapter also includes a built-in RAID controller and allows two installed M.2 drives to be
configured either as RAID-1, RAID-0, or two independent drives (JBOD mode).
