It’s no secret that China’s Lenovo Group Ltd. has its sights set on becoming a major player in the data center. That became apparent when the company bought out IBM’s x86 server business last year in a XXXX deal. Now, in advance of its much anticipated Lenovo TechWorld event later this week, the company has announced a massive expansion of its portfolio of IT services, with new software-defined storage (SDS) services, high-performance servers and improved hyper converged appliances among the highlights.
In addition, Lenovo said it’s developed a new and improved version of its network operating system (NOS).
Lenovo’s newly expanded portfolio drives the company “deeper into next generation IT and strengthens the company’s ability to help customers transform their data centers by embracing emerging data consumption and delivery models such as cloud-based infrastructure, big data and analytics,” it said in a statement yesterday.
