Did you hear about the announcement today at the Red Hat Summit that Lenovo is part of the Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure Partner Network? At Lenovo, we’re very excited about this. What it means is that OpenStack, an open source platform for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), will leverage Lenovo’s ThinkServer product line for compute and virtualization.
It also means Lenovo has taken the next step in ThinkServer’s open philosophy and “Cloud-Ready” architecture to provide customers more choice with individual stack components, including virtualization, storage, and network technologies.
Two critical attributes of a successful cloud infrastructure is that it’s easily managed, and flexible. Lenovo’s “Cloud-Ready” philosophy is to help customers easily deploy a platform that provides an automated and scalable infrastructure. Together, ThinkServer, Red Hat and OpenStack will help organizations quickly move not only to a flexible and open platform, but a more cost-effective private cloud environment.
