Lenovo unveils new data management solutions to enable AI workloads

Lenovo has launched its next wave of data management solutions with ThinkSystem DG Enterprise Storage Arrays and the 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 new #4 Global External Storage OEM and remain as the #1 storage provider in Price Bands 1-4, 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 Kirk Skaugen, president of Lenovo Infrastructure Solutions Group.

Customers need data management solutions to overcome the complexities of diverse data and simplify how data is stored, analysed 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.

  • Lenovo ThinkSystem DG Enterprise Storage Arrays: the new line of All-Flash Array (AFA) featuring Quad-level Cell (QLC) architecture, with 6x faster IOPs performance vs HDD arrays, are specifically designed to handle read-intensive enterprise AI workloads and large dataset workloads, offering faster data intake and accelerating time to insight.
  •  Lenovo ThinkSystem DM3010H Enterprise Storage Array: next-generation hybrid unified storage solution ideal for SMB customers that delivers better scalability with up to 27.6 PB (petabytes), offering exceptional flexibility for a wide range of workloads, including file services, virtualization, backup and archive and other I/O applications.
  • Lenovo ThinkAgile SXM4600 and SXM6600 Servers: Integrated systems for Microsoft Azure Stack Hub are engineered systems designed to simplify & accelerate time to value for Azure Hybrid and Multi cloud ecosystems.  These powerful solutions provide up to 77% increase in transactional database performance and up to 3 to 1 consolidation for Microsoft applications. Lenovo ThinkAgile SXM solutions are designed with full-stack lifecycle management, native Azure integration and extend applications across public and private clouds.

Leveraging the 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 that eliminate 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 percent power savings versus previous generation technology and enabling workload consolidation to reduce rack space and datacentre footprint.
