Lenovo unveils new edge solutions for AI workloads
Wed 20 Sep 2023
Lenovo has announced first-to-market edge AI services and solutions designed to enable mass deployment of remote computing capabilities that will significantly accelerate AI readiness and empower new AI applications for any business.
New Lenovo TruScale for Edge and AI brings the Infrastructure-as-a-Service model to the broadest edge portfolio on the market, enabling customers to leverage a pay-as-you-go model to quickly deploy powerful edge computing and gain AI-powered insights directly at the source of data creation.
As emerging innovations, like large language models (LLMs) require more processing power, Lenovo is also expanding its portfolio with the new Lenovo ThinkEdge SE455 V3 edge server to support intensive remote AI workloads.
Kirk Skaugen, President of Lenovo Infrastructure Solutions Group, said the company aims to simplify AI deployment at the edge.
As the amount of worldwide data grows exponentially, efficient edge computing infrastructure is essential to overcoming AI deployment complexities and helping businesses quickly translate data into actionable insights that streamline operations and improve business outcomes.
Across every industry, next-generation infrastructure technologies that deliver data centre-like computing to the edge are empowering AI for improved emergency response, public safety, accessibility, tourism and retail experiences.
With more enterprise data being processed outside of the data centre, Lenovo looks to support AI workloads everywhere, ensuring purpose-built performance and maximising computing efficiency that is critical to enabling implementation in remote settings.
Lenovo has also partnered with AMD, Intel, NVIDIA and Qualcomm Technologies to improve end-to-end operations and decision-making with computer vision, audio recognition, prediction, security, and virtual assistants for every industry.
Sergio Alcaraz Pérez, IT Infrastructure Manager for Pesca Azteca, said: “As Latin America’s biggest tuna fishing fleet, we have reliable insight into fuel and food consumption on our vessels for the first time using advanced Lenovo edge AI computing.
“Our crews can stock up with the exact supplies needed for every voyage, avoiding shortages and reducing unnecessary expenses while obtaining accurate, real-time information on the amount of fish caught, propelling more efficient, precise and profitable operations.”
In other key industries, like manufacturing, Lenovo offers edge AI solutions that help detect workplace hazards such as accidents, defective machinery and fires while state-of-the-art edge AI computing processes thousands of data points to monitor and engage with public crowds in large hospitality settings, enabling better guest services, security, and business intelligence in real time.
