7th Hardware as a Service (HaaS), pay for what you use each month
True dynamic scaling only with Lenovo’s HaaS can Customers spin-up to 100% and spin-down to 0% within the day and pay only for the amount of capacity they’ve used. As a fully flexible offering, HaaS allows Customers to choose the amount of economic certainty they prefer, from fully variable consumption (0%) to the same cost month to month (100%). Additionally, Lenovo’s proprietary metering solution underpins our offering, enabling us to assess true component level usage by measuring the input power per node. By leveraging input power, we can assess true usage while staying out of the data-plane, mitigating incremental data privacy risk to our Customers.
