PC maker Lenovo is strengthening its position in the SMB server market by launching an EMC-validated VSPEX Private Cloud Architecture with Lenovo ThinkServer RD630 as a core component of the architecture. The VSPEX architecture powered by Lenovo is now available from Lenovo distributors and resellers.
The VSPEX Private Cloud architecture delivered by Lenovo specifies EMC-validated technology, including Lenovo ThinkServers, to assemble a virtualization solution that’s pre-tested and proven to meet the IT challenges SMBs often face, such as mitigating costs associated with supporting IT infrastructure and accelerating IT service delivery.

The complete VSPEX Private Cloud specification features a virtualization layer by platforms VMware vSphere and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V, high-powered computing via Lenovo ThinkServer RD630 – a highly scalable, powerful 2U rack server, with EMC VNX storage powered by the Intel Xeon processors.
The VSPEX Private Cloud solution by Lenovo would help SMBs reduce capital expenditure through higher utilization, simplified cabling and fewer network connections. The solution would also help reduce operating expenditure by consolidating management tools and previously siloed system administration teams to allow higher-end customer IT engineers and architects to focus on more critical business needs instead of day-to-day administration.
“Lenovo ThinkServer as a core component of a validated VSPEX architecture, specifies leading virtualization, server, and network technology to create a complete virtualization solution that enables SMBs to spend less time and money on IT infrastructure and more time on their business,” said Darrel Ward, vice president, Enterprise Product Group. “SMBs and channel providers will benefit from Lenovo’s VSPEX Private Cloud solutions, which are designed to scale and perform in a simple-to-deploy, single rack.”
