A new joint ven­ture to de­liver lo­calised so­lu­tions for China

Network Middle East - - // UPDATE / OCTOBER -

Len­ovo and Ne­tapp will col­lab­o­rate de­vel­op­ing new Len­ovo-branded stor­age prod­ucts that com­bine Ne­tapp’s all-flash data man­age­ment so­lu­tions with Len­ovo’s Thinksys­tem server sys­tems.

These new prod­ucts will utilise core soft­ware tech­nol­ogy from Ne­tapp while the man­u­fac­tur­ing will be done by Len­ovo, lever­ag­ing the lat­ter’s sup­ply chain that is ranked in the top five by Gart­ner for all global tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies.

“Com­bin­ing our com­ple­men­tary strengths, Len­ovo and Ne­tapp will es­tab­lish a new stan­dard to ac­cel­er­ate our cus­tomers’ suc­cess,” says Ge­orge Kurian, CEO, Ne­tapp.

Ad­di­tion­ally, Len­ovo and Ne­tapp an­nounced a new joint ven­ture com­pany in China to de­liver stor­age prod­ucts and data man­age­ment so­lu­tions lo­calised and tai­lored to meet China’s spe­cialised re­quire­ments and dis­tinct cloud ecosys­tem. The new ven­ture is ex­pected to be op­er­a­tional by spring 2019, pend­ing lo­cal ap­provals.

“Len­ovo and Ne­tapp are po­si­tioned to de­liver the next-gen­er­a­tion of high-per­for­mance data man­age­ment so­lu­tions across the globe of­fer­ing cus­tomers un­prece­dented new per­for­mance, value and choice,” said Kirk Skau­gen, ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent, Len­ovo and pres­i­dent, Len­ovo Data Cen­ter Group.

“We are bring­ing these new stor­age and data man­age­ment so­lu­tions im­me­di­ately to com­pa­nies in more than 160 coun­tries with an un­matched sup­ply chain and ser­vices net­work, and through an ever-strength­en­ing global chan­nel part­ner ecosys­tem,” Skau­gen adds.

Len­ovo and Ne­tapp will es­tab­lish a new stan­dard, says Kurian.
