Rapidly and confidently deploy HCI clusters

Optimize Your HCI Deployment

When it comes to hyperconverged deployments, Lenovo offers flexibility so that customers can choose the model that best suits their business needs.

Since 2014, Lenovo has collaborated with Nutanix to offer ThinkAgile HX Series, a best-in-class turnkey hyperconverged system that integrates, validates, and optimizes Nutanix’s industry-leading software with Lenovo';s highly reliable platforms — including white-glove Lenovo deployment services. ThinkAgile HX appliances include a bundled Life of Device license, which remains with the appliance for its lifetime.

For customers who prefer to provide their own Nutanix software licenses, Lenovo offers another choice: the ThinkAgile HX Certified Node, which includes:

  • Fully validated and integrated hardware and firmware, certified with Nutanix software
  • Preloaded Nutanix software for ready deployment, Nutanix term license obtained separately
  • Flexibility to bring your own Nutanix term-based license, transferable to other HX certified nodes
  • Flexibility to provide your own deployment services or optionally use Lenovo Deployment Services
  • ThinkAgile Advantage Single Point of Support for quick 24/7 problem reporting and resolution

Increase Simplicity and Uptime

ThinkAgile HX consolidates compute, storage, and virtualization software into simple building blocks, easily managed in scale-out clusters through a single interface. Achieve even simpler IT operations by using Nutanix Prism for one-click provisioning, insights, and firmware updates. Both Lenovo XClarity, a fast and intuitive resource management tool, and the ThinkAgile XClarity Integrator for Nutanix, can be used in concert with Prism.

A successful hyperconverged deployment depends on reliable servers that ensure your business-critical workloads run without interruption. For 4.5 consecutive years, Lenovo servers have ranked as the industry’s most reliable platforms, and they hold the industry’s highest customer satisfaction rating. Enhanced with faster processors and memory, Lenovo platforms hold the most current performance world records, so you can run your workloads with blazing-fast speed.*

Lenovo XClarity captures industry-leading proactive platform alerts, enabling administrators to migrate or replace failing components without incurring downtime. ThinkAgile Network Orchestrator, an industry-first integration between Lenovo switches and Nutanix Prism, reduces human error and downtime by automating switch configuration.

With ThinkAgile HX Certified Nodes, you have the freedom to bring your own Nutanix term-based licenses while leveraging outstanding Lenovo reliability and performance, Nutanix simplicity, plus Lenovo ThinkAgile Advantage for seamless life cycle management. Deploy your HCI clusters rapidly and confidently with Lenovo.
