Hardware vendor Lenovo and storage specialist NetApp are joining forces to develop new Lenovo-branded storage products combining NetApp's all-flash data management solutions with Lenovo's ThinkSystem infrastructure.

The first of these products are the Lenovo ThinkSystem DE and DM Series, which are available immediately.

Both come in all-flash and hybrid configurations. The DE family can take up to 240 drives (hybrid) and deliver up to one million IOPS (all flash), while the DM scales to a maximum of 5760 drives (hybrid) with a maximum raw capacity of 57PB or 4608 SSDs for 70.5PB raw and 281PB effective capacity.

"Lenovo is committed to driving the new IT — Intelligent Transformation — through an expanding customer-centric set of data centre offerings," said Lenovo chairman and chief executive Yang Yuanqing. "Lenovo is committed to both organic and inorganic growth to meet the needs of our customers, and maintaining the strongest global partnerships in the data centre industry."
