Lenovo and DataCore – Software-Defined Storage Explained

Carlos Carrerras, senior vice president of Worldwide Business Development at DataCore, along with Lenovo’s Don Frame, Data Center Group brand director, and Patrick Oliveri, North America storage product manager, Data Center Group, recently sat down with Doug Brown of DABCC to discuss the DataCore/Lenovo partnership and the companies’ joint offering, the Lenovo DX8200D Software-Defined Storage Appliance Powered by DataCore.

The team had a great conversation about the partnership between DataCore and Lenovo, and the customer benefits that result from the combination of Lenovo’s powerful hardware and DataCore’s performance-driven software-defined storage. Don Frame noted that one of the reasons why Lenovo is excited about its relationship with DataCore is because “it is about transforming your business from a very rigid hardware-defined data center to a more agile software-defined data center, and DataCore is a perfect partner for us in that realm.”

Technologies such as IoT continue to drive data collection rates by massive amounts, and enterprises need a better way to do something with all of that information beyond simple analytics. As the industry progresses toward technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, it is an exciting time to be involved in the data center. These technologies bring tremendous potential to help solve real world problems, from resolving transportation issues to enabling life-saving applications and curing diseases. However, to make all of this happen, the storage infrastructure has to change — the legacy storage infrastructure can no longer be relied upon. Organizations cannot exist with the same legacy storage silos, adding more JBODs each time storage capacity is needed.
