Centerity Systems Announces Strategic Partnership with Lenovo

Combined offering provides customers with end-to-end visibility through SAP HANA application

Newton, MA — April 9, 2018 — Centerity Systems Inc., the leading provider of unified IT & OT performance analytics & business service management (BSM) software platforms, today announced that Lenovo Data Center Group (DCG), a leader in providing innovative enterprise data center technologies, has entered into a global partnership and reseller agreement with Centerity. Centerity will provide Lenovo with a unique analytic layer for high-end data center applications and solutions, including solutions for SAP HANA, big data, hyper-converged infrastructure and applications, to enable customers to deliver high Service Level Agreements (SLA) and business continuity.

Centerity’s solutions evaluate various aspects of BSM performance for information and operational assets identifying performance bottlenecks and ensuring a consistent response to performance problems. As such, Centerity plays a critical role in ensuring profitability for data centers and managed service providers (DC/MSP). Lenovo DCG server, storage and networking offerings have been engineered to improve resiliency, performance, and reduce total cost of ownership. In addition, they can simplify deployment to accelerate business advantage, enabling some of the most reliable, flexible, and secure data centers in the world. Centerity was embraced by Lenovo following a thorough evaluation of its performance analytics capabilities for big data (SAP HANA, Hadoop) and Converged/ Hyper-converged (Lenovo HX) environments.

The Lenovo and Centerity offering provides capability to monitor and manage the layers of solution stack including data center infrastructure such as servers, storage and networking through critical business applications resulting in improved business performance and service levels. The combined offering provides end-to-end visibility of the solution stack through interactive dashboards and enables trend analysis resulting in reduced operational complexity and the ability to anticipate needs for critical IT processes.

Customers report increased reliability and uptime with lower costs and fewer SLA penalties, which results in greater operational readiness and better CSAT scores. All of these benefits combine to accelerate the rollout of new systems and solutions and to streamline the response to IT changes. At the system administrator level, the combined Lenovo and Centerity solution further simplifies oversight of complex data centers and application environments helping to improve the speed and accuracy of troubleshooting and fault isolation.

Initially focused on simplifying oversight and administration of SAP HANA implementations, Lenovo discovered that Centerity’s approach to BSM solution complements Lenovo XClarity’s systems management capabilities and delivers new value to business and IT executives. Furthermore, the speed with which Centerity could be implemented, configured, and start generating value, was another key differentiator.

Kamran Amini, GM & VP, Data Center Infrastructure at Lenovo said, “The combination of Centerity and Lenovo solutions enables us to deliver the best experience for SAP HANA customers by providing complete, end-to-end performance analytics for complex IT environments. When combined with Lenovo systems, Centerity’s unique capabilities for monitoring and managing data center landscapes, including SAP HANA environments, helps ensure Lenovo customers experience maximum performance, reliability and return from their investment.”

Roi Keren, CEO of Centerity Systems said, “Being selected as a Lenovo partner reinforces the importance of Centerity’s approach to BSM and IT operational analytics. Our customers are receiving both top-line and bottom-line results, reporting reduced IT downtime, faster mean-time-to-restore (MTTR), and fewer false positives, which results in better SLA performance, increased reliability, and higher CSAT scores, all of which improves their ability to generate new business.”
