Iomega is Now LenovoEMC Multi-faceted partnership enhances Lenovo's position in industry-standard servers and networked storage solutions When leaders in their respective markets join forces, the world can expect great things. And with the official formation of LenovoEMC Limited, the joint venture previously announced in August 2012, this is definitely the start of something big. Meanwhile, Lenovo is also continuing to work with EMC on a wider strategic partnership in servers and enterprise storage. By bringing together EMC's market leadership in innovative storage with Lenovo's deep partner ecosystem and proven offerings in emerging markets, LenovoEMC Limited is positioned to increase market share in mature and developing markets around the world as the team expands the breadth of its network storage solutions portfolio to meet the data storage needs of customers. "Lenovo's record as one of the fastest-growing technology companies in the world and Iomega's heritage as a leader in network storage solutions enables the joint venture to pursue growth opportunities and drive innovation in the SMB NAS market," said Eric Arcese, president and general manager, LenovoEMC Limited. "With the joint venture now underway, there's a real sense of opportunity and excitement as we work with our partners and customers to firmly establish LenovoEMC Limited as a leader in the fast-growing global SMB storage market." With principal offices in Utah and Massachusetts, LenovoEMC Limited will maximize the marketing, product research, sales and supply chain resources from both companies to drive innovative new product development and efficiencies of scale through the supply chain. The Iomega network storage portfolio includes desktop, tower and rackmount array products, ranging in capacity from diskless versions (0TB) up to 48TB. Iomega NAS solutions include the award-winning EMC® LifeLine™ operating system, which combines enterprise-level storage features with an ease-of-use tailored to small business users, remote enterprise offices, departmental data centers, and others. These capabilities provide ideal storage expansion for Lenovo's award-winning ThinkServer and Thinkstation server and workstation offerings. In addition to the joint venture, the global strategic partnership between Lenovo and EMC Corporation also encompasses an x86 server technology development program, as well as an OEM and reseller relationship for EMC's storage solutions. We are making great strides in both of these areas, with a plan to launch Lenovo|EMC branded storage solutions in China in January. "EMC and Iomega are established global leaders in hardware storage solutions, with a rich history of developing products of the highest qualityâ€”which makes this a great opportunity for Lenovo to learn from other technology leaders," said Peter Hortensius, president, Product Group. "I am very excited about the prospects ahead as we blend the talents and competencies of our organizations. Together, we will be able to better attack the opportunities presented by the PC+ era."
