Len­ovo An­nounced Open­ing of a New In­no­va­tion Cen­ter in Bei­jing and More at the Su­per­com­put­ing 2015 Con­fer­ence

HWM (Malaysia) - - SMB - REPORT -

The Su­per­com­put­ing 2015 Con­fer­ence saw a few ma­jor an­nounce­ments from Len­ovo. Among them is a brand new state-ofthe-art En­ter­prise In­no­va­tion Cen­ter (EIC) in Bei­jing that will open in early 2016. The new fa­cil­ity will join the ex­ist­ing EIC in Stuttgart, Ger­many that opened ear­lier this year.

Th­ese EICs of­fer a plat­form for global reach and in­no­va­tive col­lab­o­ra­tion in ar­eas such as HPC, big data an­a­lyt­ics, and the cloud.

Len­ovo has al­ready teamed up with in­dus­try lead­ers like In­tel, NVIDIA, and Red Hat to es­tab­lish a col­lec­tive en­vi­ron­ment where part­ners, providers, and cus­tomers can work to­gether to in­cu­bate to­mor­row’s tech­nol­ogy.

“Len­ovo’s en­ter­prise strat­egy is built on the de­liv­ery of open, flex­i­ble and in­no­va­tive value and we will con­tinue to chal­lenge the en­velopes of high per­for­mance com­put­ing. En­hanc­ing our In­no­va­tion Cen­ter ca­pac­ity and forg­ing close part­ner­ships with in­dus­try lead­ers will help us de­liver ever bet­ter high per­for­mance com­put­ing to cus­tomers around the world,” said Brian Con­nors, HPC Gen­eral Man­ager and Vice Pres­i­dent, Strate­gic Al­liances and Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment, En­ter­prise Busi­ness Group, Len­ovo.

Also an­nounced at the event were Len­ovo’s new col­lab­o­ra­tions with the Univer­sity of Ox­ford and Barcelona Su­per­com­put­ing Cen­ter (BSC), as well as new part­ner­ships. Work­ing to­gether on im­prov­ing HPC en­ergy ef­fi­ciency within large data vol­ume en­vi­ron­ments, Len­ovo and the Univer­sity of Ox­ford are also em­bark­ing on a joint eval­u­a­tion pro­ject to de­velop a stack of open-source soft­ware de­signed to re­duce HPC de­ploy­ment costs.

Len­ovo and Barcelona Su­per­com­put­ing Cen­tre (BSC) have also ex­tended their on­go­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion to in­clude work­ing on sched­ul­ing, per­for­mance tools, en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and big data.

Mean­while, the com­pany’s part­ner­ship with In­tel leads to new sys­tems us­ing next-gen­er­a­tion In­tel Xeon and In­tel Xeon Phi pro­ces­sors, In­tel Om­niPath Ar­chi­tec­ture, and the In­tel En­ter­prise Edi­tion of Lus­tre soft­ware to serve th­ese needs.
