Simplify IT infrastructure and accelerate time-to-value via ThinkAgile HX Series Nutanix Appliances

Break Free From IT Silos

Operating a data center increasingly involves complex tasks, such as managing multiple silos of servers, storage, networks, and mission-critical applications. As a result, IT departments often spend most of their budget maintaining this infrastructure, instead of investing in new projects.

Lenovo ThinkAgile HX Series dramatically simplifies data center management and frees up your IT staff by accelerating your time to delivery, facilitating a seamless experience, and reducing your total ownership cost.

Simplify Your IT

Since 2014, Lenovo and Nutanix have collaborated closely to help businesses simplify IT and shrink OPEX. ThinkAgile HX Series, a best-in-class hyperconverged system with Nutanix’s industry-leading software preloaded on Lenovo platforms, delivers extreme reliability, security, scalability, and simplified management so that you can deploy applications faster, without the hassle.

ThinkAgile HX Series consolidates compute, storage, and virtualization software into a resource pool, easily managed in scale-out clusters through a single interface. As a result, you can realize dramatic savings and reduce your total cost of ownership (TCO) by up to 85%,* enabling your IT to focus on innovative solutions for your business.

Increase Agility and Uptime

You need your workloads to run blazing fast performance, 24/7. Lenovo platforms continue to be the industry’s #1 most reliable†, with the industry’s highest customer satisfaction‡ rating, so that you can deploy quickly with confidence.

Lenovo XClarity, a fast and intuitive resource management tool, captures Lenovo industry-leading proactive platform alerts, enabling administrators to migrate workloads or replace failing components without incurring downtime.

For reduced manual entry, customers can leverage ThinkAgile XClarity Integrator for Nutanix, which automates HX discovery and authentication. Also, ThinkAgile Network Orchestrator, an industry-first integration between Lenovo switches and Prism, reduces error and downtime by automating switch configuration in response to virtual network changes.

Since Lenovo platforms hold the world record for two-socket virtualization performance, you can run your workloads faster, for accelerated outcomes. To address your business needs, ThinkAgile HX Series models are optimized for a wide variety of workloads, including virtualization, analytics, remote office branch office, and databases. Deploy your HCI clusters rapidly and confidently with Lenovo.
