We are pleased to offer a guest post from one of our valued vSAN partners, Lenovo. This post previews some of the joint work from our two companies and what you can look forward to at VMworld 2017.

Like me, I’m sure you’re all excited about VMworld 2017 whether you are there in person or tracking all the excitement online and through social media.  At Lenovo, we are particularly excited about this year’s event as we look to unveil the results of all the work the Lenovo team has been putting in on the latest vSAN releases and Intel Xeon Scalable platforms. Earlier this year, Lenovo launched ThinkSystem servers that bring together the Lenovo ThinkServer and System-X platforms into a single platform that incorporates the reliability you expect from Lenovo with latest features and performance, winning 42 world records for performance and making it an ideal platform for HCI powered by vSAN.

As part of that launch, we introduced Lenovo ThinkAgile, our software-defined solutions platform based on the ThinkSystem platforms.  At VMworld you’ll see how ThinkAgile and VMware vSAN come together, and how Lenovo and VMware continue to innovate together to deliver solutions for the datacenter.

If you visit us at VMworld (Booth #314) and the HCI Zone (Booth 1739), you’ll be able to see the new ThinkAgile solutions for VMware vSAN. Come meet the team that delivers vSAN ReadyNodes based on the new ThinkSystem SR630 and SR650.  They are available to discuss their work on the validated designs, like the Lenovo Cloud Validated Design for VMware SDDC based on VMware vSAN and Lenovo Database Validated Designs for High Performance Microsoft SQL Server OLTP on VMware vSAN.

On Monday we’ll be talking about how we can help you with containers on VMware in a session titled Implement a Container Orchestration Platform [PBO3325BUS]. And on Tuesday we’ll take a look further into the future with session called The Singularity Arrives in 2025 [FUT3322BUS], where we’ll show you how Lenovo is pushing the limits of what is possible with compute systems.
