Smarter AI Accelerates Adoption: Taking AI from Concept to Reality

Lenovo’s third annual global CIO report shows AI as IT’s most urgent priority, but also reveals that organizations struggle with how to implement it. Offering five stages, the Lenovo AI Services Center of Excellence (COE) combines business advisors, data scientists, and infrastructure to maximize outcomes and fast track powerful, responsible and sustainable AI. To get started, Lenovo AI Discover expertly guides any business through the first steps of AI. To simplify the journey, the Lenovo COE is expanding to include the next stage of services and new NVIDIA offerings that supercharge customer progress:

• New AI Advisory Services will build upon a company’s AI readiness, discovery, and ideation to define the desired outcomes and build the AI roadmap at any scale, from pocket to cloud.

• New AI Fast Start for NVIDIA NIMS builds on Lenovo AI Fast Start for NVIDIA AI Enterprise to quickly scale AI using full-stack NVIDIA-based solutions. The service shortens time to market and simplifies the deployment of validated, vertical generative AI applications using NVIDIA AI Foundation models on any cloud or data center. NIM microservices provide enterprise developers production-ready, optimized inference engines for popular AI models available from NVIDIA and its partner ecosystem. The service helps make AI workloads a reality and reduces the time to AI-driven outcomes for industry leaders in manufacturing, retail, telecom and more.

• New AI Fast Start for AI Innovators helps companies build a live solution demo harnessing their data, running tailored use cases to prove the solution and get started right away.

Start the smarter AI journey with data science optimised solutions

Lenovo accelerates AI development with its expanded AI PC portfolio and services. NPU-enabled Lenovo ThinkPad devices and Dynamo AI for AI Innovators allow enterprises to deploy generative AI safely. The ultrathin Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Gen 6, the first CoPilot+ PC with 40+ TOPs capability, offers superior AI performance and efficiency for remote work.

Lenovo’s largest ever portfolio of NVIDIA Certified desktop and laptop workstations for NVIDIA AI Enterprise is delivering the highest-performance computing capabilities required to develop AI projects. Its ThinkStation PX is desktop and rack optimized, and is the world’s most powerful workstation for AI development, capable of supporting up to four of NVIDIA’s highest end RTX professional GPUs. The recently announced ThinkPad P1 Gen 7 serves as Lenovo’s most powerful AI PC and includes a dedicated neural processing unit (NPU) plus advanced NVIDIA RTX professional graphics for a premium AI experience.

Smarter AI Takes Liquid Cooling Mainstream: 6th Generation Lenovo Neptune Liquid Cooling

With more than 40 industry-first patents, Lenovo is pushing the envelope on liquid cooling technology, with the 6th generation of Lenovo Neptune liquid cooling. This extends Lenovo’s industry-leading Neptune liquid cooling for mainstream use throughout its ThinkSystem V3 and V4 portfolios.

For over a decade, Lenovo Neptune™ has pioneered liquid cooling technology, reducing power consumption by up to 40% compared to air-cooled systems. Its direct water-cooling recycles warm water, minimizing the need for power-hungry fans. New designs now address multi-node, enterprise, HPC, and AI-optimized servers.

• New On-Memory cooling for ThinkSystem platforms allows customers to select from CPU and memory options to efficiently reduce heat and maximize performance where it is needed most.

• New GPU Cold Plate design cools accelerators consuming ~700W now with future designs for more than 1000W of cooling power per accelerator.

• Enhanced, industry-unique cold plate cooling fan and flow design maximizes heat extraction for high power CPUs and accelerators in a dense 1U footprint using a liquid loop.

Additionally, colocation partnerships are helping customers implement high-performance private AI even if they lack the data center footprint or infrastructure for liquid cooling. Partnering with Lenovo, Digital Realty, recently built on its high-density colocation offering with the introduction of Lenovo Neptune cooling technology in more than half its data centers globally, representing a significant leap in addressing the challenges of high-density workloads presented by AI.
