Any workload, any scale, all the time

Increase Your Freedom

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

Lenovo ThinkAgile HX Series, a best-in-class hyperconverged system with Nutanix’s industry-leading software preloaded on Lenovo platforms, dramatically simplifies data center management, frees up your IT staff, and accelerates your deployment, ultimately reducing your total ownership cost.

Lenovo platforms continue to be the industry’s #1 most reliable, with the industry’s highest customer satisfaction rating, so that you can run your workloads predictably, with maximum uptime. Lenovo XClarity, a fast and intuitive resource management tool, captures Lenovo proactive platforms, enabling administrators to replace a failing component while avoiding unplanned downtime.

ThinkAgile Network Orchestrator, an industry-first integration between Lenovo switches and Prism, reduces error and downtime by automating switch configuration.

Lenovo has engineered, tailored, and validated ThinkAgile HX designs for a wide range of business solutions, so that you have the freedom to run any workload, at any scale, all the time.

Simplify Your IT

Since 2014, Lenovo and Nutanix have collaborated to help businesses simplify IT and shrink OPEX. ThinkAgile HX Series consolidates compute, storage, and virtualization software into a resource pool, easily managed in scale-out clusters through a single interface. The series ships from Lenovo as fully integrated and validated building blocks, and delivers extreme reliability, security, scalability, and simplified management. As a result, you can deploy applications faster, without the hassle, while dramatically reducing your total cost of ownership by up to 2.8x.*

Use Nutanix Prism for one-click planning, provisioning, insights, and firmware updates to achieve faster, simpler IT operations. A Lenovo-Nutanix innovation, the ThinkAgile XClarity Integrator for Nutanix, available from the Nutanix Calm marketplace, can be used in concert with Prism for comprehensive management and reduced manual entry. Leverage the time and cost-savings of ThinkAgile HX to enable your IT to focus on innovative solutions for your business.

Enjoy a Transformative Experience

Lenovo ThinkAgile Advantage provides end-to-end life cycle management for a seamless, simple customer experience for planning, deployment, and maintenance, including a 24/7 Single Point of Support. ThinkAgile HX Series also includes the option of shipping from Lenovo’s factory in a rack, along with any combination of ThinkSystem servers, storage, and networking, which facilitates quick deployment of solutions based on validated HX reference architectures.

Now enhanced with even faster processors and memory, Lenovo platforms hold the highest number of performance world records so you can run your workloads at blazing-fast speed for accelerated outcomes. ThinkAgile HX Series models are optimized for a broad set of virtualized workloads for on premises or in the cloud, including ROBO, office applications, analytics, and in-memory databases. Deploy your HCI clusters rapidly and confidently with Lenovo.
