Lenovo has announced an exciting strategic partnership with Anaconda® Inc., a leading provider of open-source code for artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and data science platforms. This partnership aims to empower Lenovo’s high-performance data science workstations by combining Lenovo’s trusted ThinkStation and ThinkPad workstation products with Anaconda’s enterprise strengths in open-source leadership, security, and reliability.  

The evolution of artificial intelligence, deep learning, and generative AI is creating new opportunities for businesses and data scientists. With Python leading the way as a software language for AI applications, open-source software and cloud-based solutions are driving much of the AI innovation. However, the use of open-source software at an enterprise level poses data security risks, privacy concerns, and often high costs for cloud-based AI solutions. This has led many organizations to rethink their approach to AI investment. The partnership between Intel®-powered Lenovo workstations and Anaconda Navigator is designed to address these challenges by providing enterprise-grade AI software support and first-class hardware for data scientists to create and deploy AI solutions.  

The new generation of data science workstations from Lenovo, optimized for Intel platforms, offers significant AI performance and scalability and is one of the most powerful AI workstation portfolios in the world. These workstations complement cloud-based AI solutions, acting as a bridge between local and cloud resources to enhance data scientist flexibility and productivity. With Lenovo’s full workstation portfolio catering to various AI workflows, industries, sizes, and price points, organizations can drive the future of AI in a cost-efficient manner. From single CPU and GPU mobile workstations ideal for data input to the most powerful dual CPU and four GPU configurations for advanced AI workflows, Lenovo workstations with Anaconda Navigator provide secure environments for complex AI development and deployment.  

“With Lenovo’s trusted workstation leadership and Anaconda’s trusted leadership in open-source software support and reliability, the partnership is a perfect match,” said 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,” said 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. This symbiotic relationship enables organizations to push boundaries and accelerate innovations in artificial intelligence without technological constraints.”
