Lenovo Data Center Group (DCG), a global technology leader, today announced their first participation at The Future Blockchain Summit 2019, the region’s most influential blockchain event, hosted at the Dubai World Trade Centre.  During the two-day show, Lenovo DCG will be showcasing some of the company’s latest blockchain solutions, as well as its project pipeline, in partnership with Intel and Nutanix.

“We are very pleased to be participating in the Future Blockchain Summit for the first time to showcase our recent breakthroughs in blockchain technology. Our focus is to deliver solutions that will enable companies and organizations the ability to streamline their business process with digital “Trust” that will enhance their business productivity and growth,” said Dr. Chris Cooper, General Manager, Lenovo DCG Middle East. “I believe this will strongly fuel the digital transformation taking shape in the region.”

Lenovo and Nutanix recently introduced their first blockchain project to the global market. Being showcased at the Future Blockchain Summit, this project is built-in on the Lenovo ThinkAgile HX7820 Appliance platform and runs on the Nutanix Acropolis virtualization platform in addition to Intel Xeon Skylake processors.*

“There is a need for sophisticated AI-driven analytics as blockchain adoption increases in the region and more complete and critical data is stored in distributed ledgers.” Said Dr. John O’Shea, Lenovo Global Blockchain AI & IoT Solution Leader. “Our unique partnership with Nutanix and Intel is unlocking the benefits of blockchain in an integrated ecosystem of supporting capabilities. It also will allow our clients to successfully implement highly-complex blockchain projects that meet the needs of their mission critical workloads.”

The participation comes after Lenovo DCG recently implemented the architecture of a new blockchain platform for the Central Bank of Azerbaijan. The project forms part of the government’s 5-year-plan for the country’s digital transformation. This project has led to the development of a digital identification system that will be used by governmental agencies and commercial banks in the country.
