Memory

The ThinkAgile HX7520 appliances support Lenovo TruDDR4 memory. TruDDR4 memory uses the highest-quality components sourced from Tier 1 DRAM suppliers and only memory that meets strict requirements is selected. It is compatibility tested and tuned to maximize performance and reliability.

The HX7520 supports up to 24 DIMMs. Each processor has six memory channels, and there are two DIMMs per channel.

The following rules apply when selecting the memory configuration:

  • The appliance supports RDIMMs, LRDIMMs, or 3DS RDIMMs.
  • All DIMMs in the appliance must be of the same type (RDIMMs, LRDIMMs, or 3DS RDIMMs).
  • All DIMMs in the appliance operate at the same speed up to 2666 MHz, which is determined by the maximum memory speed supported by the specific processor.
    Note: Maximum memory speed can be achieved when Max performance mode is enabled in UEFI.
  • The following maximum memory capacities are supported by the appliance:
    • RDIMMs: 768 GB.
    • LRDIMMs: 1.5 TB.
    • 3DS RDIMMs: 3 TB (requires processors that support 1.5 TB of memory per socket).

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC
  • SDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs)
  • ADDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs; Gold and Platinum processors only)
  • Patrol scrubbing
  • Demand scrubbing

Single Device Data Correction (SDDC) works only in the independent channel mode (the default operational mode) and supports only x4-based memory DIMMs.

Adaptive Double Device Data Correction (ADDDC) works with x4-based memory DIMMs and requires two DIMM ranks per channel, Intel Xeon Gold or Platinum processors, and the Closed Page memory access mode.

The following table lists the memory options that are available for selection.

Hardware warranty

The ThinkAgile HX Series appliances can be configured with a three- or five-year hardware warranty with 24x7 ThinkAgile Advantage Single Point of Support (Lenovo appliance hardware and Nutanix software) and various levels of coverage with a well-defined scope of services, including service hours, response time, term of service, and service agreement terms and conditions.

The Lenovo local support centers perform problem determination and resolution for hardware-related issues and escalate to Nutanix, on behalf of the customer, for software-related problem determination. Nutanix will contact the customer and will own the software-related problem resolution until closure.

Some countries might have different warranty terms and conditions than the standard warranty. This is due to local business practices or laws in the specific country. Local service teams can assist in explaining country-specific terms when needed. Examples of country-specific warranty terms are second or longer business day parts delivery or parts-only base warranty.

If warranty terms and conditions include onsite labor for repair or replacement of parts, Lenovo will dispatch a service technician to the customer site to perform the replacement. Onsite labor under base warranty is limited to labor for replacement of parts that have been determined to be field-replaceable units (FRUs). Parts that are determined to be customer-replaceable units (CRUs) do not include onsite labor under base warranty.

If warranty terms include parts-only base warranty, Lenovo is responsible for delivering only replacement parts that are under base warranty (including FRUs) that will be sent to a requested location for self-service. Parts-only service does not include a service technician being dispatched onsite. Parts must be changed at customer’s own cost and labor and defective parts must be returned following the instructions supplied with the spares parts.

Lenovo warranty service coverage levels are country-specific. Not all warranty service levels are available in every country. For information about Lenovo warranty services that are available in your country or area, refer to the following resources:

The following Lenovo warranty service levels are available for the ThinkAgile HX Series appliances:

  • 3 or 5 years of warranty service coverage
    • Base warranty: 9x5 Next Business Day response with parts delivered
    • Foundation Service: 9x5 service coverage with next business day onsite response
    • Essential Service: 24x7 service coverage with 4-hour onsite response or 24-hour committed repair (available only in select countries)
    • Advanced Service: 24x7 service coverage with 2-hour onsite response or 6-hour committed repair (available only in select countries)
  • Premier Support

    Premier Support service offers direct access to Lenovo’s most advanced technicians for faster troubleshooting with single point of contact for end-to-end problem resolution and collaborative third-party software support.

  • YourDrive YourData

    Lenovo’s YourDrive YourData service (where applicable) is a multi-drive retention offering that ensures your data is always under your control, regardless of the number of drives that are installed in your Lenovo system. In the unlikely event of a drive failure, you retain possession of your drive while Lenovo replaces the failed drive part. Your data stays safely on your premises, in your hands. The YourDrive YourData service can be purchased in convenient bundles with Foundation, Essential, or Advanced Service upgrades and extensions.

For service definitions, country-specific details, and service limitations, please refer to the following documents:
