Lenovo’s ThinkSystem DM5100F SAN and DM5000F SAN are the first to market with complete upgrade paths from block only to Unified (block, file and object) storage. Powered by ONTAP data management software, these latest solutions have upgradeable software packages to suit the needs of organisations today and as they grow in the future.
Marco Pozzoni, Director, EMEA Storage Sales, Lenovo ISG said, “Traditional storage solution packages come with all capabilities built-in, raising the costs and making storage expensive for all businesses. We’ve decided to address this issue and offer solutions that help companies, irrespectively of the growth stage they are at. The DM5100F SAN and DM5000F SAN are both fully upgradeable from a hardware and software perspective, giving businesses a richer data management platform that grows as they do.
“With flexible working arrangements looking to be a more permanent factor in our lives, businesses need to be able to ensure that mission critical functions remain online in both a secure and effective way. Our tests have achieved efficiency rates of up to 20:1 when running virtual machines, and up to 3:1 in other more data intensive environments. These ratings dramatically lower the total cost of ownership of data storage, which combined with our flexible software and hardware packages provides businesses with an industry leading solution that meets their needs now and in the future.”
