LENOVO: Partners Showcasing Their Solutions at Oracle Linux and Oracle Virtualization with OpenStack Showcase

This Friday and next three Fridays until Oracle OpenWorld, we will be featuring the Oracle Linux and Oracle Virtualization with OpenStack Showcase in our blogs. Our regular Friday Spotlights will resume in October after OpenWorld. The focus of this blog will be one of our key partners -  Lenovo.

Lenovo Next Generation Servers: Oracle Solutions For Mid-Market Customers

Lenovo is a leading server provider in key market segments such as retail, education, hospitality, and enterprise customers with distributed data centers. Many of these customers are running Oracle solutions on Lenovo deployments.  

In fact, through Oracle’s Hardware Certification Program, Lenovo’s full suite of rackmount systems, have been certified with Oracle Linux and Oracle VM, providing customers with the assurance that the Lenovo and Oracle combined solution is a proven one. Furthermore, through Oracle’s Validated Configuration Program, customers benefit from the reliability of pre-tested and validated architectures, currently featuring Lenovo’s ThinkServer RD640 and RD430, with Oracle’s red stack consisting of Oracle Linux, Oracle VM, Oracle Database and Oracle Fusion Middleware. 

In addition, this year’s Oracle OpenWorld offers a forum for Lenovo to announce some new and exciting news. Lenovo has been approved to move forward with the acquisition of IBM’s x86 server business, and other ancillary product lines. With this new acquisition, Lenovo will support Oracle Linux and Oracle VM on System x, BladeCenter and Flex System blade servers and switches, x86-based Flex integrated systems, NeXtScale and iDataPlex servers and associated software, blade networking and maintenance operations. 

Come hear about Lenovo’s next generation servers, storage solutions, and the value of running Oracle software on Lenovo’s family of ThinkServer systems in these Scene and BeHeard sessions.  Visit Lenovo at Moscone South, Booth 611, Kiosk: SLX-022.

Accelerate your Linux Deployments with Oracle Validated Configurations

For those who are not familiar, Oracle Validated Configurations enable easier, faster, and lower-cost deployment of Oracle Linux and Oracle VM solutions in the enterprise. The program offers pre-tested, validated architectures, with documented best practices for software, hardware, storage, and network components. This integrated approach helps improve the performance, scalability, and reliability of solutions, with faster, lower-cost implementations. This industry-wide program is accepted and endorsed by partners as a way to document best practice deployments of their products in Oracle's Linux and virtualized environments.

Oracle Validated Configurations provide unique value to the customers as the integrated stack, including hardware and software, goes through rigorous testing to ensure that different pieces work together in the most effective way. This means customers do not have to do any additional testing in their own environments. Moreover, customers can get support for the individual pieces of the Oracle Validated Configurations in exactly same way as they get support for any other Oracle and partner products. Oracle and the participating ISV and IHV partners have joint support processes to address any customer issues that may come up with the Oracle Validated Configuration.
