China-based business networking company Lenovo announced its latest data center solutions — server, storage, networking, software and data center services for enterprises.
ThinkSystem and ThinkAgile are the latest two business networking brands from Lenovo. The tech company said Lenovo ThinkSystem and ThinkAgile data center solutions provide fluid resources that can adapt to the evolving needs of a business.
According to a recent IDC survey, 72 percent of CIOs and technology leaders cited supporting digital transformation and business growth as the leading rationale in IT infrastructure decisions.
Hybrid cloud matured, while software defined architectures and hyperconverged infrastructure have disrupted the status quo for IT infrastructure in larger businesses in the past three years.
The redesigned ThinkSystem software-defined solution, based on Intel Xeon Scalable processors, reduces complexity and cost created by silos in traditional IT.
The ThinkSystem portfolio of servers, storage and networking solutions allows customers to address concerns by giving them the ability to streamline IT infrastructure — leading to increased service levels of data center operations that tie directly to business growth.
ThinkSystem works seamlessly with an organization’s previous investments, without completely re-architecting the data center.
Lenovo ThinkAgile integrated solutions adapt to changing IT and business needs by delivering the speed, simplified management and agility of cloud services while retaining the much-valued control and governance of on-premises IT.
Its pre-integrated, pre-built and pre-tested offerings deliver robust new capabilities to customers’ data center, including automated lifecycle management, decreased TCO and reduced need for IT resources to maintain the platform.
These solutions include ThinkAgile SX series for Microsoft Azure Stack, as well as ThinkAgile SX rack level solutions that integrate networking with hyperconverged offerings for a seamless customer experience.
Lenovo also announced the delivery of one of the most powerful systems – on Intel Xeon Platinum processor– to Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC).
Lenovo said BSC MareNostrum 4 supercomputer incorporates 48 racks with more than 3,400 nodes with Intel Xeon processors and a central memory of 390 Terabytes. Its peak power will be over 11 Petaflop/s, allowing the center to test and analyze the performance of supercomputing.
