Lenovo to sell Nutanix powered hyperconverged appliances

News: Chinese manufacturer makes converged systems move.

By Joao Lima

Lenovo and Nutanix have signed a strategic partnership envisioning a new family of hyperconverged appliances.

Under the deal Nutanix software will be used to power Lenovo’s future hyperconverged solutions.

The companies said their goal is to enable IT organisations to focus on the applications and services that power and make their business more agile by offering an alternative to public cloud services.

They also said that the joint solution will include some of Intel’s technologies, and it will run nearly all workloads, including enterprise applications, databases, virtualised desktops, and big data analytics, with improved efficiency and scalability.

Lenovo said that converging storage, server and virtualisation services into an integrated scale-out appliance helps simplify data centre management and can drive substantial IT cost savings.

It also said that hyperconvergence combines highly reliable server platforms with software to build private cloud data centres that match the agility, scalability and fractional consumption of public clouds.

The combined products will be sold through its global channel of partners, as well as its enterprise sales teams. The two companies are also eyeing investments in platform engineering and development, and go-to-market initiatives.
