 RESEARCH TRIANGLE
PARK, N.C.
– Today, Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR:
LNVGY) Infrastructure Solutions Group (ISG) with Nutanix
announces an As-a-Service solution for Hosted Desktops to
help IT decision makers thrive in the new remote hybrid
workforce model. According to Lenovo’s recently released
“Future
of Work and Digital Transformation” study
, 83 percent
of businesses expect post-pandemic work to be remote at
least half the time. Lenovo TruScale™, Lenovo’s first
solution for Hosted Desktops with Nutanix, provides
companies with a complete and more secure remote work
solution. A choice of Lenovo client devices is offered, such
as thin clients and PCs, choice of Citrix and other virtual
desktop environments, and ThinkAgile HX Series (powered by
Nutanix), all licensed to the end user and managed
as-a-service. The complete Hosted Desktops solution provides
cloud-like simplicity and on-premises performance, with the
convenience of a single monthly payment and single point of
contact for support.

“Many organisations are
modernising their IT infrastructures to support the growing
demands remote work continues to place on their IT
systems,” said Kirk Skaugen, Executive Vice President,
Lenovo Group and President of Infrastructure Solutions
Group. “We are seeing a shift where customers are more
interested in as-a-service models to help offset the
investment associated with upgrading their IT systems
quickly. Lenovo’s collaboration with Nutanix provides
customers with a more secure, Hosted Desktop as-a-service
solution that is easy to secure, deploy and manage with
minimal up-front costs.”

Over the past few years and
especially during this global pandemic, industries such as
healthcare require the ability to complete more
administrative and clinical activities remotely, with added
safety and security. Fraser
Health Authority
, one of Canada’s largest and fastest
growing health authorities servicing 1.8 million people in
British Columbia, revitalised their data centre with Lenovo
and Nutanix to ensure high-quality patient services during a
province-wide lockdown.

“We see that remote
connectivity is more than just a short-term response to the
COVID-19 pandemic. It’s part of our long-term strategy to
ensure we can deliver vital health services no matter
what,” said Wesley Kampff, Portfolio Manager, Fraser
Health Authority. “To streamline maintenance and support,
our preference was to engage a single vendor to deliver the
workstations and data centre solutions. We were confident
that replacing our traditional three-tier architecture with
the cutting-edge ThinkAgile HX hyperconverged platform, with
Nutanix, would offer the performance, availability and
scalability we wanted” added Kampff.

Secure Desktop
Delivery with Cloud-Like Consumption Frees Up IT

challenge among IT departments, especially in a remote work
environment. Designed to support a breadth of industries,
including healthcare, education and SMB, Lenovo’s

cloud-like capabilities with infrastructure on premises,

supported by software stacks in partnership with Nutanix and
Citrix and Lenovo thin clients or PCs, all available via

    simplicity of a fully complete and managed solution:
    Incorporating devices, data centre infrastructure
    and infrastructure managed services, the Hosted Desktops
    solution provides predictable, fixed monthly charges, and
    reduces up-front investment to better align costs with
    business outcomes.
  • Improved productivity:
    Lenovo TruScale™ for Hosted Desktops with Nutanix
    reduces ongoing management costs within the hosted
    environment. Lenovo’s services team handles all aspects of
    the engagement from Professional Services that helps
    customers right-size and design a successful migration
    strategy, through to the end-of-life asset removal. Lenovo
    Managed Services ensures the infrastructure operates
    smoothly 24/7, freeing up IT administrators’ time to focus
    on strategic priorities.
  • Reduce
    infrastructure management costs by as much as 62%.
    Lenovo TruScale for Hosted Desktops with Nutanix,

    cloud platform software
    , reduces price per user by
    co-locating compute, storage and virtualisation on a single
    cluster thus significantly simplifying
    operations.

“As businesses worldwide look for
the way forward beyond this pandemic, they need technology
partners to help them embrace the future of work and thrive
in a hybrid work model which will be the standard for many
organisations,” said Tarkan Maner, Chief Commercial
Officer at Nutanix. “Lenovo’s strategic collaboration
with Nutanix provides customers an end-to-end
solutionfrom the hybrid cloud data centres to digital
workspacesto empower employees wherever they are, while
