Infotech Lead America: Lenovo has announced support for EMC’s VSPEX program, which specifies EMC-validated technology – including Lenovo ThinkServers to deliver a virtualization solution for SMBs.
Lenovo ThinkServer, as a core component of a validated VSPEX architecture, specifies leading virtualization, server, and network technology to create a complete virtualization solution that enables SMBs to spend less time and money on IT infrastructure and more time on their business.
The complete VSPEX private cloud specification features a virtualization layer by leading platforms VMware vSphere and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V, high-powered computing via Lenovo ThinkServer RD630 — a highly scalable, powerful 2U rack server, with EMC VNX storage powered by the Intel Xeon processors.
The VSPEX solution helps reduce capital expenditure through higher utilization, simplified cabling and fewer network connections.
The solution also helps reduce operating expenditure by consolidating management tools and previously siloed system administration teams to allow higher-end customer IT engineers and architects to focus on more critical business needs instead of day-to-day administration.
Recently Lenovo unveiled entry-level workstation for a starting price of around $729.
ThinkStation E32 is designed for professionals working in computer-aided design, product development and architecture. ThinkStation E32 is available with Intel Xeon E3 and 4th generation Intel Core i7 and Core i5 processors.
