Lenovo DCG introduces new data management solutions
Published 8 December 2020
Lenovo Data Center Group (DCG) has introduced a new end-to-end data management solution for its partners.
The new Lenovo ThinkSystem DM5100F is an advanced hybrid cloud data management platform designed to enhance the performance of data analytics and AI deployments, enabling the secure and efficient harnessing of data from edge to core to cloud.
“Customers continue to face challenges implementing a cohesive data management system to analyze and process data more efficiently,” said Stuart McRae, Executive Director and General Manager, Storage at Lenovo Data Center Group.
Lenovo DCG also introduced upgrades to the Lenovo ThinkSystem Monitoring 2.0 software solution, its cloud-based management platform that uses AI to simplify and automate the care and optimization of Lenovo’s ThinkSystem storage environment.
“Lenovo’s unique state-of-the-art data management architecture, in combination with the industry’s most reliable ThinkSystem servers, enables customers to accelerate Analytics and AI within a single platform,” added Mr. McRae.
The upgrades are to help mitigate the costs of data management.
Jolera, a multinational service provider, recently worked with Lenovo to build out their back-end IT infrastructure. Jolera chose Lenovo DM Series and DE Series to build out their new offering, in combination with Lenovo ThinkSystem SR630 servers connected to storage arrays.
“One of our first achievements was boosting the deduplication ratio of our storage solution from 3:1 to 4:1 by simply using the built-in tools in ThinkSystem,” said José Martins, Vice President, European Sales and Operations at multinational IT solutions company Jolera Inc.
Jolera will continue to optimize our data center with tools and guidance from Lenovo.
In the future of AI where the technology will move from research and science to delivering insights and automation for enterprises, Lenovo will focus on partnering and enabling this value for businesses of all sizes by collaborating with NetApp and NVIDIA to publish a Reference Architecture for an AI training system.
