Len­ovo drives deeper into $87b data cen­tre mar­ket

Pakistan Observer - - ECONOMY WATCH - STAFF RE­PORTER

IS­LAM­ABAD—Len­ovo re­cently in­ten­si­fied its fo­cus on the $87 bil­lion data cen­tre tech­nol­ogy mar­ket by un­veil­ing an ex­panded ar­se­nal of IT so­lu­tions, in­clud­ing next-gen soft­ware de­fined stor­age, en­ter­prise net­work­ing of­fer­ings and ca­pa­bil­i­ties, the lat­est high-per­for­mance servers and an en­hanced suite of hy­per con­verged ap­pli­ances.

The broader port­fo­lio drives Len­ovo deeper into next-gen­er­a­tion IT and strength­ens the com­pany’s abil­ity to help cus­tomers trans­form their data cen­tres by em­brac­ing emerg­ing data con­sump­tion and de­liv­ery mod­els such as cloud-based in­fra­struc­ture, big data and an­a­lyt­ics so­lu­tions. The com­pany will show­case many of these new so­lu­tions pub­licly for the first time at its an­nual Len­ovo TechWorld event in San Fran­cisco.

The new of­fer­ings are the lat­est demon­stra­tion of Len­ovo’s abil­ity to lever­age part­ner­ships with in­dus­try lead­ers, as well as lead­ing-edge startup firms, to or­ches­trate de­liv­ery of best-of-breed so­lu­tions free of legacy tech­nolo­gies and in­vest­ment bur­dens. They give cus­tomers even greater flex­i­bil­ity to de­ploy the right so­lu­tions for their evolv­ing IT en­vi­ron­ments and busi­ness sce­nar­ios with­out be­ing locked in to rigid tech­nol­ogy stacks.

“This dra­mat­i­cally ex­panded port­fo­lio is a pow­er­ful demon­stra­tion of Len­ovo’s com­mit­ment to cre­at­ing pur­pose­ful data cen­ter in­no­va­tion in a truly open ecosys­tem,” said Tom Shell, se­nior vice pres­i­dent, Data Cen­ter Prod­uct Group, Len­ovo. “With the lat­est ad­vance­ments in server per­for­mance, soft­ware-de­fined stor­age, hy­per-con­ver­gence and re­ju­ve­nated net­work­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties, all de­liv­ered seam­lessly in a part­ner-cen­tric model, Len­ovo is striv­ing to re­de­fine the data cen­ter in­side and out.”

Len­ovo launched a new and in­no­va­tive Soft­ware De­fined Stor­age (SDS) ap­pli­ance pro­gram, called StorS­elect, col­lab­o­rat­ing with lead­ing In­de­pen­dent Soft­ware Ven­dors (ISVs) to in­te­grate their SDS soft­ware with Len­ovo hard­ware in turnkey ap­pli­ances. The fac­tory-in­te­grated ap­pli­ances with end-to-end Len­ovo sup­port en­able sim­ple and con­fi­dent de­ploy­ment of scal­able stor­age so­lu­tions. The first of­fer­ings in this pro­gram – the Len­ovo Stor­age DX8200Nand DX8200C– in­te­grate SDS soft­ware from Nex­enta Sys­tems, Inc. and Cloudian, Inc., re­spec­tively, to de­liver break­through re­turn on in­vest­ment for stor­age so­lu­tions.

Len­ovo re­ju­ve­nated its en­ter­prise net­work­ing line with ex­panded of­fer­ings and ca­pa­bil­i­ties, en­abling cus­tomers to de­ploy more com­pre­hen­sive so­lu­tions from the core data cen­tre to the cam­pus. The com­pany re­leased its next-gen­er­a­tion net­work op­er­at­ing sys­tem, Len­ovo Cloud NOS, which of­fers new func­tion­al­ity that en­hances re­siliency, cloud-level scal­a­bil­ity and pro­gramma­bil­ity. It will be avail­able for cus­tomer down­load start­ing on June 17.
