Lenovo Servers to Run IBM Software

The Register

IBM and Lenovo have agreed to cooperate on developing servers based on x86 chips and running IBM's System x server software.The agreement is seen a sign of Lenovo's determination to reach further into the small and medium-size business market.

Some also see it as a sign that IBM is getting further out of the hardware business in favor of services and solutions, though IBM said it would continue to sell its own brand of servers.
