Lenovo now offers several flash storage solutions, made possible through a global multi-faceted partnership with NetApp.
The ThinkSystem DE and DM Series was co-developed by the two companies and is a large range of Lenovo-branded storage products that combine NetApp’s all-flash data management solutions with Lenovo’s ThinkSystem infrastructure.
