Lenovo’s storage innovation and channel-centric strategy helped the company drive record growth and infrastructure leadership.

Lenovo has announced new solutions to enable customers to better solve for rapidly growing data management needs, coupled with new milestones in its enterprise storage momentum. For the first time, Lenovo is ranked as the #1 storage provider in the “Price Bands 1-4 (storage <$25K) external storage” category, which represents 61% of the total market for storage device units sold globally1. In EMEA for the second consecutive quarter Lenovo was ranked #1 storage provider in the same category. 

Lenovo also grew to the #5 storage provider globally in all segments, according to IDC Worldwide Quarterly Enterprise Storage Systems Tracker, 4Q22. Additionally, its new enterprise-class storage solutions deliver significant power efficiency increases and datacenter space savings to help support sustainability goals while new ThinkSystem storage systems help safeguard critical data with advanced ransomware protection. Lenovo’s storage portfolio has experienced significant growth in the last year with an all-time record 138% YTY revenue increase.  

“Lenovo is committed to being the industry’s most trusted partner and empowering our customers’ intelligent transformation. Our tremendous growth in the market, now becoming the #1 storage provider in price bands <$25K, underscores the trust customers and partners have placed in Lenovo through our channel-centric strategy. The breadth of our data management portfolio is continuing to expand with our recently announced WEKA solutions, custom cloud storage solutions, and an ever-increasing software defined portfolio,” said Kirk Skaugen, President, Lenovo Infrastructure Solutions Group. 

Fueled by strong market momentum in edge-to-cloud servers, storage, and software, Lenovo is further transforming into a full-service solutions provider with continued expansion and leadership across a comprehensive infrastructure solutions portfolio. As part of the company’s overall achievement, Lenovo TruScale Infrastructure as-a-Service also grew more than 600% YOY Year-to-Date.

“Retaining #1 ranking in the entry storage market in EMEA for a second quarter exemplifies the trust our partners and customers have in Lenovo Data Management solutions.

TruScale Infrastructure as-a-Service, which enables all of Lenovo’s data management offerings to be consumed via a pay-as-you-go model, has been solving a lot of Data Management Needs for Customers.

The company is deploying a network of Lenovo ThinkSystem DE4000 storage systems and SR650 V2 servers to gain better data insights and scalability through a flexible consumption and deployment model.

Petco is leveraging industry-leading Lenovo ThinkSystem storage and servers with the Lenovo TruScale as-a-Service model to unlock faster insights to help us deliver new and differentiated offerings to the market,” said Guillermo Cortés Prieto, Director of Technological Innovation and Systems at Petco Mexico.

Partners can easily access the full breadth and depth of the Lenovo portfolio across services and solutions, infrastructure, and intelligent devices. The framework helps partners to strengthen their position in the market and better respond to customer needs.

By tapping into our Advanced Solutions team and Lenovo’s 360 partner framework, channel partners gain valuable resources and are better equipped to deliver and manage secure, end-to-end storage solutions to businesses of all sizes,” said Cheryl Rang, Executive Director, Advanced Solutions, Ingram Micro.
