Lenovo Embracing Azure Stack
Now that major IT vendors have jumped into the Microsoft Azure Stack game, they're busy trying to one-up each other.
Lenovo embraced the Microsoft Azure Stack early as a way to market the simplicity, flexibility, scalability and capacity of on-premises cloud solutions. Top data center vendors such as Dell EMC and Hewlett Packard Enterprise also have begun selling Azure Stack and recently have started trying to differentiate their offerings.
Now Lenovo says it has landed an important endorsement for its Azure Stack offering from Intel.
Lenovo, which says it does nearly 90 percent of its North America business through the channel, released its ThinkAgile SX for Microsoft Azure Stack as part of its plug-and-play ThinkAgile line of software-defined data center offerings launched last summer. The system carries no up-front cloud software license costs, and customers are billed monthly based on usage.
Here are five things partners need to know about the latest developments in Lenovo's ThinkAgile SX for Microsoft Azure Stack efforts.
