5 Technologies Leading Lenovo's Data Center Charge
Partnering To Make Moves In The Data Center
Lenovo sits atop the worldwide market in PCs but has struggled to gain traction in the data center since acquiring IBM's x86 server business about a year and a half ago. Now, the company, which has U.S. headquarters in Morrisville, N.C., is moving aggressively into the data center with the launch of several partnerships, products and programs that cover software-defined storage, networking, servers and hyper-converged infrastructure.
The latest expansion comes on the heels of the launch of Lenovo's HX2000 series of hyper-converged appliances developed in conjunction with Nutanix, a series of hyper-converged appliances aimed at the small- and midsize-business market and running on Nutanix's new Xpress software.
The company said it is digging deeper into the global data center market and into areas where it sees the most potential to make gains in cloud-based compute and consumption models.
