Jakarta, Indonesia – February 24th, 2016: Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY), the number 1 PC vendor in the world and the third-largest global x86 server hardware supplier today announced their collaboration with Nutanix to bring hyperconverged infrastructure to enterprise market in Indonesia.
The two companies will introduce a new family of hyperconverged appliances built on Lenovo’s industry-leading enterprise systems, ranked number one in customer satisfaction1 and reliability2, and powered by the award-winning Nutanix software.

This solution can also improve business agility by providing a compelling alternative to public cloud services. This collaboration also proves Lenovo’s strong commitment in IT industry, supporting Lenovo’s strategy to become the market leader in x86 servers and investing in the development and delivery of IT solutions to shape next-generation data centers.
“Lenovo can bring a new perspective to the global enterprise space. We do not have to protect old ways of thinking or entrenched ideas. Instead, we can build our business on innovation, and partner freely with the most innovative, leading companies in this space to create new solutions,” said Daniel Tan, Alliance Director, Enterprise Business Group Lenovo Asia Pacific. “Nutanix’s well recognized technology leadership, paired with our global reach, will enable both companies to thrive by helping customers dramatically reduce complexity in datacenters of all sizes,” he added.
