The partnership will combine Lenovo x3650 server platform with DataCore’s SAN symphony-V software and training.
Lenovo Australia alliances manager, Andrew Silvers, said it wanted to provide a technology that was reliable, easily expandable and had the ability to ingrate with existing storage environments, across the Cloud too.
"For our customers, performance, price, integration and reliability are key," Silvers said. "For our reseller partners who traditionally sell SAN solutions, the option to have a disruptive infrastructure technology, is something they've yearned for."
According to Datacore vice president of Asia Pacific and Japan, Jamie Humphrey, the partnership provides the storage enterprise market with improvements in price, performance and density.
“Customers are shifting away from traditional storage arrays and towards software defined storage solutions built on Intel x86 platforms,” he said. "DataCore offers a single capability that allows customers to have an end-to-end approach that isn't bound by silo and there's no need to rip and replace. It's an exciting value proposition from this alliance whether you're an end user or a partner."
