Lenovo Attains Status as Largest Global Provider of TOP500 Supercomputers

Today, at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) in
Frankfurt, Lenovo Data Center Group (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY)
continued its global momentum, becoming the world’s largest TOP500
supercomputing provider measured by the number of systems ranked on the
TOP500 list. 117 of the 500 most powerful supercomputers included in the
TOP500 are Lenovo installations, meaning nearly one out of every four
systems (23.4 percent) on the prestigious list is a Lenovo solution.

“Last year, we set a goal to become the world’s largest provider of
TOP500 computing systems by 2020. We have reached that goal two years
ahead of our original plan,” said Kirk Skaugen, President of Lenovo Data
Center Group. “This distinction is a testament to our commitment to
prioritize customer satisfaction, deliver cutting edge innovation and
performance and be the world’s most trusted data center partner. We are
motivated every day by the scientists and their groundbreaking research
as we work together to solve humanity’s greatest challenges.”

Lenovo’s high performance computing customer base is as diverse as it is
wide, with 17 of the top 25 research universities and institutions
across the globe now powering their research with Lenovo’s comprehensive
HPC and AI solutions. Lenovo, with dual headquarters in Morrisville, NC,
USA and Beijing, China, enables ground breaking research in over 160
countries in the world and in many fields including cancer and brain
research, astrophysics, climate science, chemistry, biology, artificial
intelligence, automotive and aeronautics, to name a few.

Examples of Lenovo’s innovative supercomputer system designs and the
research they enable include:

“Lenovo has an industry leading ability to bring deep innovations and a
comprehensive approach to execute on the largest scale and highest
performance, working with our customers to design supercomputing systems
that meet their needs in terms of design and compute power,” said Madhu
Matta, Vice President and General Manager of HPC and AI at Lenovo Data
Center Group. “This flexibility and customer-first attitude positions us
well for future growth in the high performance computing and artificial
intelligence markets.”

To further enable customers to increase performance and simultaneously
reduce electrical consumption, Lenovo
also announced Neptune – its holistic, three-pronged approach to
liquid cooling technologies – this week at ISC. Neptune encompasses the
company’s entire suite of liquid cooling technologies including Lenovo’s
Direct to Node (DTN) warm water cooling, rear door heat exchanger (RDHX)
and hybrid Thermal Transfer Module (TTM) solutions, which combine both
air and liquid cooling to deliver peak or high performance for HPC, AI
and enterprise customers.
