Sunlight.io, the edge infrastructure company, and Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY), the global technology powerhouse, today announced that Sunlight has signed a reseller agreement with Lenovo Global Technology (United States) Inc. The agreement will allow Lenovo to sell Sunlight as part of a complete Edge Computing-as-a-Service solution.
Sunlight is the platform of choice for customers and partners who deploy and manage applications at the edge (outside of the data center), at scale. It is the world’s thinnest, fastest edge-to-core HyperConverged infrastructure platform. Running on ARM and x86, Sunlight provides superior performance in a fraction of the footprint of legacy solutions.
Lenovo design and build a range of servers specifically for the unique edge use-case requirements – the ThinkEdge SE30, SE50, SE70 and ThinkSystem SE350 and SE450. Sunlight offers wide-ranging support and system compatibility for Lenovo’s edge portfolio. The Lenovo edge servers offer the power, performance and flexibility customers need to build next-level edge networks. Coupled with Sunlight’s HyperConverged Edge stack and NexCenter infrastructure manager, the software and hardware stacks are ideal for data-intensive applications at the edge, such as IoT and AI, due to their small footprint and high performance possibilities.
“Lenovo is leading the way when it comes to developing smarter infrastructure solutions and services for intelligent transformation. Partners like Sunlight are a crucial part of the ecosystem making this happen,” said Blake Kerrigan, Sr. Director, ThinkEdge Business Group at Lenovo. “We’re delighted that Sunlight, a Lenovo AI Innovator Partner, has agreed to Lenovo becoming a reseller as we accelerate the development of edge computing solutions – including the first HyperConverged stack supporting the NVIDIA Jetson-based Lenovo ThinkEdge SE70 to make Edge AI deployable at scale.”
Sunlight COO, Andy Brewerton said, “Sunlight is a partner-orientated company. The reseller agreement with Lenovo gives enterprises and partners the choice of off-the-shelf and t-shirt sized edge computing solutions to meet their needs. For Sunlight, the agreement gives us a sophisticated route to market for our solution, including access to a global Lenovo sales team and channel network.”
