Lenovo is all set to launch their ‘ThinkSystem SE350 Edge Servers for customer edge sites. The VMware software solution is pre-loaded on a pair of ruggedized and security-enhanced ThinkSystem SE350 that will be delivered directly to the customer edge sites. These servers can sustain extreme temperatures and high levels of shock because of their ruggedized nature. For additional security of the data and device, encrypted hard disks have been included in the system with motion and tamper detection.
Lenovo is the first company in the market to launch ThinkSystem Edge servers with VMware software for the edge. This solution will ensure smoother seamless operation by eliminating the need for external network devices at the edge and simplify networking with built-in switching and wireless connectivity. This solution will allow remote sites like retail stores, manufacturing sites, and schools to easily process data closer to users.
Lenovo Open Cloud Automation
Lenovo has also announced the enhancement of ‘Lenovo Open Cloud Automation Management Software’ that will help organizations to plan their data center cloud and edge infrastructure solutions. This software can automate planning, deployment, and ongoing management of physical/virtual infrastructure for cloud applications to edge sites.
The enhanced version of the software includes edge-supported features, to help customers with cutting-edge management capabilities. This saves up to half of the servers normally needed and takes full advantage of the built-in networking features of the ThinkSystem SE350. The Lenovo Open Cloud Automation Management Software will allow organizations having distant edge sites to automate tasks on-site without the help of a specialized staff.
