Lenovo brings new ISV offerings at VMworld 2015

Enterprise networking vendor Lenovo announced new ISV offerings including Red Hat OpenStack and VMware Software Defined Data Center for enterprises and SMBs at VMworld 2015.

Improvement in performance and speed in deployment in support of demanding workloads such as cloud, big data and database applications are the main benefits, said Lenovo in a statement issued on Monday.

A recent Lenovo survey says businesses are expected to double cloud applications and storage over the next couple of years. Managing complex cloud virtualization and using big data to drive revenue growth will be a significant edge for businesses.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, paired with the Lenovo System x3650/x3550 M5 and ThinkServer RD650/RD550 rack servers provides the performance, scalability and security for business-critical cloud applications.

“We are expanding our relationship with Lenovo to provide our leading open-source solutions such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform on top of Lenovo hardware,” said Jim Totton, vice president and general manager, Platforms Business Unit, Red Hat.

The Lenovo Cloud Reference Architecture for VMware Software Defined Data Center provides an affordable and interoperable cloud architecture to manage business’s virtualized workloads.

Lenovo System x3650 M5 rack server, Lenovo networking and IBM Storwize V3700 storage delivers on all fronts with up to 61 percent greater virtualization performance versus the previous generation.

Lenovo Database Configuration for EnterpriseDB Postgres Plus provides a combination of the Lenovo System x3850 X6 mission-critical server with mainframe-like reliability. The open-source-based Postgres Plus Advanced Server database from EnterpriseDB presents a very economical database solution option.

“The IT landscape is shifting at an unbelievable pace with businesses handling more data and more traffic than ever before,” said Michael Gebele, vice president, World Wide Systems Development, Lenovo Enterprise Business Group.
