We understand that IT budgets are flat or shrinking and you may be working with fewer resources. Limited storage expertise can also make it difficult for you to respond to increased expectations. We’re here to make it EASY for you. Lenovo Storage brings you the products you need, the choice you desire, the ease of implementation you require and the low price points to fit your IT budget. Our current announcements are no different.
Lenovo Storage S2200/S3200
This feature-rich, high-performing storage-area network (SAN) is ready for demanding workloads in any environment (check out the Demartek evaluation on our S3200 array with multiple virtualized workloads). It delivers extreme performance, an easy-to-use GUI, thin provisioning, virtual snapshots, flash cache, virtualized storage and rapid RAID rebuild. Today, we’ve added asynchronous replication. With asynchronous replication, you can replicate volumes from one array to another (local or remote), receive 24/7 protection of your data and have a full disaster recovery solution. Whether you’re part of a large enterprise or a small business, if you need a simple, flexible and optimized SAN, the Lenovo S series can support your data needs.

Lenovo Storage E1012 and E1024
The Lenovo Storage E1012 and E1024 are new direct-attach storage (DAS) products being introduced today. They’re powerful JBODs we’re delivering at an excellent price point with the flexibility and capacity to handle many different types of workloads. You can start with one enclosure as a simple JBOD, and later, daisy-chain up to seven more on a single host bus adapter (HBA). The E1012 and E1024 are optimized for price-performance, easy to deploy and easily integrate with your ThinkServer or System x platforms. And because storage is useless when it’s offline, the E1012 and E1024 use ruggedized components that are designed for 99.999 percent availability, along with hot-swap drives, power supplies, fans and I/O modules for both ease of use and maximum uptime. Take a 3D tour of our new E1012 and E1024 products, or visit the web site to learn more.
