Can Lenovo Gain More Traction In The Enterprise Datacenter?
In 2014, #Lenovo, a dominant force in the PC market, embarked on a journey to increase its presence in the datacenter with the acquisition of #IBM ’s x86 server business. Lenovo’s integration of IBM’s x86 server team is now complete, and the company has shifted into a higher gear looking to take advantage of competitive disruptors such as the merger of #Dell and #EMC, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise ( #HPE ) shedding several business units. 2016 was a big year in terms of announcements for Lenovo in the datacenter, with the launch of several partnerships, products and programs that span across ( #SDS ) software-defined storage, networking, servers and converged infrastructure. Lenovo’s datacenter business remains in strong in China, but the company has experienced mixed results thus far in the rest of the world.
