From InfoWorld: PC maker Lenovo says it will enter the global server market later this month, shipping systems for small and medium-sized businesses.
The company's new ThinkServer computers will come in five different single and dual-processor configurations and will be available in both tower and rack designs starting September 30, according to Marc Godin, vice president and general manager of Lenovo's enterprise business unit.
Lenovo has previously sold servers in China under the SureServer brand, but now the company is breaking out of its home market for the first time, Godin said. "This is really Lenovo going after the worldwide server market," he said.
Lenovo is not bringing new technology to the table -- the ThinkServer hardware is licensed from IBM -- but the company thinks it can take advantage of its popular brand name to sell new hardware through its existing sales channels. Lenovo also makes the ThinkPad laptops and ThinkStation and ThinkCentre desktop computers.
