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 closely with Nutanix to offer ThinkAgile HX Series, a best-in-class turnkey hyperconverged system that integrates Nutanix’s industry-leading software and licensing with Lenovo highly reliable platforms — including white-glove Lenovo deployment services.

For customers who prefer to provide their own Nutanix software licenses and/or deployment services, 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 software license obtained separately
  • Flexibility to bring your own Nutanix software license or leverage the customer's existing license
  • 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

Deliver Greater Reliability/Performance

The success of deploying a hyperconverged solution

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. They also hold the industry’s highest customer satisfaction‡ rating, and the world record for virtualization performance.*

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

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

With ThinkAgile HX Certified Nodes, you have the freedom to use existing Nutanix licenses while leveraging outstanding Lenovo platform reliability, performance, and ThinkAgile Advantage Single Point of Support. Deploy your HCI clusters rapidly and confidently with Lenovo.
