Today, Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) announced its next wave of data management innovation with new ThinkSystem DG Enterprise Storage Arrays and ThinkSystem DM3010H Enterprise Storage Arrays, designed to make it easier for organizations to enable AI workloads and unlock value from their data. Also announced are two new integrated and engineered ThinkAgile SXM Microsoft Azure Stack solutions, enabling a unified hybrid cloud solution for seamless data management. As businesses continue to scale their operations to address growing data, security and sustainability requirements, the new Lenovo flash solutions provide customers with an accelerated path to deploy AI workloads efficiently and with added security features from edge to cloud, enabling workload consolidation and mobilizing faster insights fortified with ransomware protection.
As the #4 global external storage OEM and #1 storage provider in Price Bands 1-41, the news is another significant step forward in Lenovo’s data management strategy as it expands its leadership in the mid-range market. “The data management landscape is increasingly complex, and customers need solutions that offer the simplicity and flexibility of cloud with the performance and security of on-premises data management,” said Kamran Amini, Vice President and General Manager of Server & Storage, Lenovo Infrastructure Solutions Group. “As we continue our journey to become the world’s largest end-to-end infrastructure solutions provider, we are focused on delivering innovation that enables our customers to manage, leverage and protect their data seamlessly, giving every business the ability to bring AI to the source of the data and transform their business.”
New Storage Innovation Increases Performance and Faster Data Insights
Customers need data management solutions to overcome the complexities of diverse data and simplify how data is stored, analyzed, and managed throughout its lifecycle. Lenovo’s new storage arrays help customers overcome the challenges of data located in multiple locations, eliminating data silos, and expediting insights from data across hybrid multi-cloud environments.
Data Management Simplified for More Efficient Operations
Leveraging the powerful, all-inclusive Lenovo Unified Complete Software suite, the new DG and DM storage solutions include ransomware and data protection features designed to preserve and protect valuable business data throughout its lifecycle, reducing risk and mitigating costs associated with data intrusion and data loss. This unified management software provides customers with out-of-the-box features, including built-in ransomware protection, multi-tenant key management and immutable file copies to diminish the ability for ransomware to change the file.
Designed for higher efficiency and lower power and cooling requirements, the new DG storage solutions also help customers meet environmental and sustainability goals, delivering up to 25% power savings versus hybrid arrays and enabling workload consolidation to reduce rack space and datacenter footprint.
Lenovo Helps Novo Genomics Accelerate Insights
As customers seek simplified solutions to help manage complex data, Lenovo is delivering open architecture that helps them harness data and create insights that can transform their business. Biotech start-up Novo Genomics specializes in genomics and multiomics to develop personalized medical treatments for genetic diseases. While next-generation sequencing (NGS) techniques have helped reduce the time and cost of DNA sequencing, advances in high-performance computing (HPC) technology have made it possible to perform genomics sequencing for entire populations. To manage the high volume and velocity of data generated through HPC, and support accelerated genomics analysis, Novo Genomics worked with Lenovo to deploy two Genomics Optimization and Scalability Tool (GOAST) nodes based on an Intel Select Solution.
“With Lenovo GOAST, we can process a batch of 32 exomes in parallel in as little as three hours—delivering up to 27 times faster analysis. In fact, the Lenovo solution allows us to analyze an entire human genome in less than an hour, accelerating our cutting-edge research,” said Abdulrahman Al Asiri, Researcher and PhD Candidate, Novo Genomics.
The Lenovo GOAST solution utilizes Lenovo ThinkSystem DM Storage Arrays for both the shared storage tier for fast data migration and for archiving genomic sequencing data and results.
Storage Market Landscape
Fueled by strong market momentum in edge-to-cloud servers, storage, and software, Lenovo is further transforming into a services-led solutions provider. Across its solutions, Lenovo is helping customers harness the value of their data through its TruScale Infrastructure as a Service, providing Lenovo’s data management via a pay-as-you-go model for ultimate flexibility. Our TruScale model provides a cloud-like experience, helping customers leverage the right solutions, at the right time, from the pocket to the Edge and all with on-premises security for control and peace of mind.
