A year ago, every major vendor had a pay-per-use on-premises server as a way to counteract the popularity of cloud vendors — all but Lenovo.
Well, no more. The company is launching TruScale, a pay-per-use system for its servers that it says offers true pay-per-use and no requirement of a minimum capacity purchase. TruScale is a subscription-based offering that allows customers to use and pay for data center hardware and services either on premises or at a customer-preferred location without having to purchase the equipment outright. Capacity can be scaled up or down to accommodate business needs automatically. It requires no minimum capacity purchase, which HPE and Dell do require.
