Lenovo Jumps Into Consumption-Based Infrastructure, Ready to ‘Kill’ the Competition

February 12, 2019 / Jessica Lyons Hardcastle

Lenovo’s TruScale Infrastructure Services offering lets companies rent its data center severs and software stacks and only pay for what they use.While it’s the latest vendor to offer pay-as-you-go infrastructure — Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s (HPE) GreenLake portfolio is probably the most established while Amazon Web Services (AWS) recently jumped into the fray with AWS Outposts — Rod Lappin, chief customers officer at Lenovo Data Center Group, says his company’s TruScale Infrastructure Services is ready to take them all on. When asked about HPE Greenlake: “I will kill that!”Lappin is joking. At least kind of. But he says Lenovo’s data center as-a-service offering has some unique characteristics that set it apart.
