Lenovo is making a significant investment and commitment to the world of open source. This will become more evident as we reach the upcoming Red Hat Summit at the end of this month. With our friends at Red Hat, the open source champion, Lenovo has embarked on a flurry of marketing and development around exciting new technologies such as OpenStack, software defined storage and cloud management to name a few. In fact, our Lenovo Professional Services team has dozens of trained engineers certified and ready to support OpenStack cloud deployments.
Our partnership with Red Hat has been long-standing, starting with resell of the popular Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system and other related products. Most recently, we really amplified our efforts in 2015 by adding Red Hat OpenStack Platform, Red Hat Ceph, Red Hat Gluster and Red Hat CloudForms products to the Lenovo portfolio. This allowed Lenovo to expand offerings to include open source solutions and initiatives.
