Lenovo has announced it has reached a new milestone in becoming the #1 entry storage provider in EMEA for the first time in revenue, according to the IDC Enterprise Storage Systems Tracker, Q3 2022. The new rankings reveal Lenovo at #1 in the “Price Bands 1-4” category, for the first time surpassing all other storage vendors. Lenovo’s growth has taken place during a period where the EMEA Entry storage market overall grew by +36.8% YoY in Vendor Revenue (USD) terms.
“The ability to collect, protect, store, analyze, and manage data is vital to an organization’s business, which is why Lenovo is committed to being the most trusted partner able to deliver on this,” said Giovanni Di Filippo, EMEA President of Lenovo Infrastructure Solutions Group. “As the #1 ranked provider for entry storage revenue in EMEA, we are successfully delivering new economics enabling business critical storage to the masses and through business partners and industry customers of all sizes. Now, companies everywhere can harness the power of data to transform their businesses.”
New enhanced security features, such as ransomware protection with tamper-proof snapshots protect data across the business, and Lenovo’s new TruScale Infinite Storage helps entry companies quickly adapt to data expansion. The perpetual pay-as-grow expansion service can seamlessly scale performance and capacity to help accelerate innovation, reduce operational complexity, and increase agility. Customers benefit from secure, highly reliable on-premises storage with a cloud-economics model that helps ensure their IT infrastructure is always ready to respond to changing business requirements.

Today, data management solutions need to be economical, reliable, secure, and scalable. The ability to distribute, protect, analyze, and manage data is vital to an organization’s business and customer success strategy. Lenovo is helping customers across a variety of high-growth industries modernize their data management infrastructure with solutions that flexibly scale across hybrid-multi cloud environments, enable quick deployment of new services and efficiently process growing amounts of data.
FC Internazionale Milano, one of the most popular football clubs in the world, recently sought new ways to leverage data to improve player performance, content management, and community engagement. To accomplish this, Inter leadership turned to Lenovo to revamp the club’s entire technological infrastructure, ultimately using data to achieve new innovation goals.
“We’ve been enhancing our technological capabilities in recent years, not just to provide fans with more ways to interact with the game, but also to help players analyze and enhance their performance,” explained Mark Van Huuksloot, Inter’s Chief Operating Officer. “Both of these activities generate massive amounts of data. We have 60 million GPS data points relating to player performance from the last two football seasons alone. So, ensuring that we have a highly performant, scalable, and reliable infrastructure at the heart of our activities is critical for driving innovation and transforming data into timely insights.”
