Lenovo announces a strategic partnership with Anaconda Inc., provider of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and data science platform, to empower Lenovo’s performance data science workstations, the companies say. The partnership will couple Lenovo’s ThinkStation and ThinkPad workstation product portfolio with Anaconda’s enterprise strengths for open-source leadership, security, and reliability, the companies add.

With Intel-powered Lenovo workstations architected with the latest generations of professional NVIDIA graphics processing units built for large-language model fine-tuning, and the Anaconda Navigator’s ability to enable businesses to leverage open-source and AI with enhanced security, scale and governance mechanisms in place, the partnership allows data scientists to create and deploy AI solutions with hardware and enterprise-grade AI software support in a manageable investment framework.

Optimized for Intel platforms, Lenovo’s new generation of data science workstations deliver AI performance. Lenovo workstations complement cloud-based AI solutions by acting as a bridge between local and cloud resources. Lenovo’s full workstation portfolio includes highly configurable systems designed for nearly every AI workflow, industry or vertical, size and price point. From single CPU and GPU mobile workstations that are ideal for data input, collection and preparation, to dual CPU and four GPU configurations for advanced AI workflows, Lenovo workstations with Anaconda Navigator offer protected “sandbox” environments to tackle complex AI solution development and deployment, according to Lenovo.

“With Lenovo’s trusted workstation leadership and Anaconda’s trusted leadership in open-source software support and reliability, the partnership is a perfect match,” says Rob Herman, vice president and general manager, Workstation and Client AI Group at Lenovo. “We’re excited to activate this partnership to aid data scientists in pushing forward the capabilities of AI with our premium workstations portfolio and Anaconda’s stellar open-source packages and repositories.”

Anaconda Navigator is available for download to use on current and future generation Lenovo Workstations.

“As artificial intelligence and machine learning models grow increasingly complex, high-performance workstations are imperative to empower data scientists with advanced capabilities,” says Chandler Vaughn, chief product officer at Anaconda. “Lenovo's leadership in supplying optimized workstations, featuring robust GPUs, memory, and storage, positions them as an ideal collaborator for Anaconda and our Navigator desktop product. By jointly providing resilient hardware and trusted software tools, Lenovo and Anaconda present data scientists, AI developers, and AI engineers an unrivaled platform to freely explore emerging techniques in AI/ML.”
