VMware and Lenovo Announce Agreement to Increase Adoption of VMware Virtualization in China
VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW) and Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced an agreement to increase the adoption of VMware virtualization in China. Starting today, Lenovo will sell, distribute and support the VMware Infrastructure 3 platform on Lenovo server systems. This partnership enables businesses and organizations in China to leverage both the performance and scalability of Lenovo servers with VMware virtualization to reduce operating expenses, improve business continuity, strengthen security and reduce their power consumption and carbon footprint.

“Virtualized architectures are gaining momentum in China as a better way to run datacenters,” said Diane Greene, president and chief executive officer of VMware. “Through our relationship with Lenovo and its world-class brand, we are making VMware virtualization more broadly available to the Chinese market.  With VMware virtualization, Lenovo customers can quickly experience its significant business benefits including reducing operating and capital costs by as much as 50 percent, delivering applications more quickly and reliably in virtual machines, and improving security across the datacenter and on the desktop.”

“Together with VMware, our customers will have access to a versatile technology that is helping to transform IT in China and around the globe,” said William J. Ameilio, president and chief executive officer of Lenovo. “Coupling Lenovo’s leading server products with VMware’s broad range of award-winning virtualization solutions will help customers as they come to terms with the rapid datacenter growth taking place in businesses throughout China.”

Customers can now purchase Lenovo servers pre-installed with VMware’s market-leading datacenter virtualization and management platform, VMware Infrastructure 3, provided with full support from Lenovo. VMware Infrastructure 3 enables automatic load balancing, business continuity and power management and the ability to move a virtual machine across physical machines to minimize service interruption. VMware Infrastructure 3 is also compatible with VMware’s desktop virtualization and management solutions.


VMware Infrastructure 3 is available on Lenovo servers immediately, backed by full support from Lenovo.
