With the Beijing Olympic Games drawing near, Lenovo has completed its third and final hardware shipment of 3500 computing devices to provide the IT infrastructure necessary to keep the games online.
Lenovo supplied the Beijing Organising Committee with 242 servers, 140 server racks, 2375 desktop computers and 141 notebooks. The latest kit adds to more than 8200 pieces of equipment that will power 56 Olympic venues around seven cities next year.
All up, the vendor is supplying 14,000 pieces of computing gear for the games. The two primary Lenovo machines involved are the ThinkPad T60 notebook and ThinkCentre M55e.
All IT equipment will be put to the test during the forthcoming Good Luck Beijing sporting events to ensure systems can handle the main event, which starts with the Opening Ceremony on August 8, 2008.
