Lenovo forges ties with EMC to boost storage, server sales
Lenovo Group Ltd., the world’s second-biggest personal-computer maker, agreed to ally with EMC Corp. to help boost sales of storage equipment and servers that run corporate networks. As part of the deal, Lenovo will resell machines made by EMC, the biggest maker of storage devices. The sales will start in China then move abroad. The agreements, announced in Beijing Wednesday, help Hopkinton-based EMC widen its foothold in China, the world’s second-largest economy. Lenovo gets to expand in products besides personal computers and add sales outside Asia.
