Cohesity and Lenovo Global IT Team Up to Bring Software-Defined Secondary Storage to China Market
Santa Clara, Calif. – May 23, 2017 – Cohesity, the pioneer of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced that it received Lenovo Global IT Certification. In addition, Lenovo will deliver Cohesity’s advanced solution to customers in Greater China. Lenovo worked with Cohesity for over a year to test its scale-out secondary storage platform, and already adopted Cohesity for internal use in its own production environments. Based on this experience, Lenovo will develop optimized offerings based on the specific and unique needs of China customers.
Lenovo initially chose Cohesity after a successful internal IT deployment to manage data protection and NAS filer use cases. Cohesity’s platform runs in Lenovo internal IT supporting production systems, and has received the “Lenovo Global IT Certified” stamp. We plan to bring the revolutionary secondary storage platform to other customers in Greater China and beyond. To move the business forward, we will begin to educate local specialists and set-up demo labs across China.
“Cohesity’s product is both a disruptive and innovative solution for Lenovo,” said Lenovo ITS Director PengCheng Zhang. “We see a substantial opportunity to simplify data protection and NAS use cases.”
“Enterprises will benefit from the radical efficiency and cost-effectiveness of Cohesity’s secondary storage platform combined with our hardware platforms and software-defined infrastructure ecosystem,” said Lenovo’s George Gao. “We are excited to bring the benefits of ‘Silicon Valley innovation’ to our large and growing customer base.”
“Lenovo is the most successful and forward-thinking systems provider for enterprise IT in China, and we look forward to leveraging their institutional knowledge and deep understanding of the China customer base to enable more companies to benefit from Cohesity’s powerful approach to secondary storage,” said Cohesity Head of Corporate and Business Development Vivek Agarwal. “Working with Lenovo will allow us to continue our rapid expansion into different markets across the world, as well as at home in the United States.”
