Lenovo announced today new products in several solution portfolios, including updated X6 servers and two new EMC-supported offerings optimized for deployments of SAP HANA and SAP Business Suite software.
“Business analytics presents big opportunities and challenges for virtually every enterprise,” said Darrel Ward, vice president, Enterprise Marketing and Storage Business Unit. “Our new X6 server-based solutions and services for SAP HANA and SAP Business Suite offer a powerful, scalable and fast path for turning data into a competitive advantage.”
The updated scalable X6 servers, the four-socket Lenovo System x3850 X6 and eight-socket x3950 X6, feature a modular architecture and deliver 50 percent better performance than previous-generation X6 systems.
