Dubai: Lenovo Data Center Group (DCG), a global technology leader, announced their participation in Intersec 2020, one of the world’s leading security trade shows, hosted at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Lenovo DCG will be demonstrating the computing capabilities of the recently launched first purpose-built edge server, the ThinkSystem SE350.
Designed to operate outside data centers and in locations close to where data is generated, the ThinkSystem SE350 which will be powered by Pivot3 HCI software will address issues surrounding security, latency, bandwidth and downtime with regards to smart city applications.
