Introduction

Lenovo Scalable Infrastructure (LeSI) is a framework for designing, manufacturing, integrating and delivering data center solutions, with a focus on High Performance Computing (HPC), Technical Computing, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) environments.

Benefits

Lenovo Scalable Infrastructure provides “Best Recipe” guides to determine interoperability of hardware, software and firmware among a variety of Lenovo and third-party components.

Addressing specific needs in the data center, while also optimizing the solution design for application performance requires a significant level of effort and expertise. Customers need to choose the right hardware and software components, solve interoperability challenges across multiple vendors, and determine optimal firmware levels across the entire solution to ensure operational excellence, maximize performance, and drive best total cost of ownership.

LeSI reduces this burden on the customer by pre-testing and validating a large selection of Lenovo and third-party components, to create a “Best Recipe” of components and firmware levels that work seamlessly together as a solution. From this testing, customers can be confident that such a best practice solution will run optimally for their workloads, tailored to the client’s needs.

In addition to interoperability testing, LeSI hardware is pre-integrated, pre-cabled, pre-loaded with the best recipe and optionally an OS-image and tested at the rack level in manufacturing, to ensure a reliable delivery and minimize installation time in the customer data center.

With LeSI, customers can focus their efforts on maximizing their business value, instead of consuming valuable resources to design, optimize, install, and support the infrastructure required to meet business demands. Whether the need is for a small AI training solution, a mid-sized HPC cluster, or the world’s largest supercomputers, customers can take advantage of the decades of Lenovo experience, innovation, and expertise in solution deployment with Lenovo Scalable Infrastructure. LeSI delivers optimized IT solutions to the customer pre-integrated, pre-loaded, and tested, and ready to install, increasing time-to-value and reducing deployment risk.

LeSI solutions are based on:

  • Industry-leading Lenovo ThinkSystem servers, storage and networking
  • Open source and OEM software
  • Best-of-breed third-party components especially in high performance networking and acceleration.

Lenovo thoroughly tests and optimizes all LeSI components for reliability, interoperability and maximum performance, so clients can quickly deploy the system and get to work achieving their business goals.

Warranty options

LeSI exclusive components has a three-year (Machine Types 1410, 7X74, 0724, 0449; for the other Hardware and Software components configured within LeSI their respective warranty terms apply) have a three-year customer-replaceable unit (CRU) and onsite limited (for field-replaceable units [FRUs] only) warranty with standard call center support during normal business hours and 9x5 Next Business Day Parts Delivered.

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.

Also available are Lenovo Services warranty maintenance upgrades and post-warranty maintenance agreements, with a predefined scope of services, including service hours, response time, term of service, and service agreement terms and conditions.

The following warranty upgrades are available:

Table 21. Warranty upgrades

Foundation

The Foundation support level provides:

  • Next-business-day onsite response during normal business hours, 5 days per week
  • Base warranty upgrade covering onsite installation of all replacement parts

Essential

The Essential support level provides all the benefits of Foundation services, plus:

  • Four-hour onsite response, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week
  • YourDrive YourData

Advanced

The Advanced support level provides all the benefits of Essential services, plus:

  • Two-hour onsite response, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week

The following recommended additions are available to the warranty upgrades:

  • Extend services with coverages up to 5 years
  • Basic hardware installation services
  • Enterprise server software support
  • 24 hour committed service repair
  • YourDrive YourData (Foundation)

The YourDrive YourData service allows you to retain possession and dispose of failed drives. Otherwise, failed drives under warranty must be returned to Lenovo upon replacement. This service is essential for organizations that must keep their data secure on premises, such as medical, retail, insurance, education, financial and technology sectors.

Solution Interoperability Support

On top of their individual warranty and maintenance scope or support entitlement, LeSI offers solution-level interoperability support for HPC and AI configurations based on the above selection of Lenovo ThinkSystem portfolio and OEM components.

The extensive testing results in a “Best Recipe” release of software and firmware levels Lenovo warrants to work seamlessly together as a fully integrated data center solution instead of a collection of individual components at the time of implementation.

The following best recipes were released for Scalable Infrastructure at Lenovo:

The Solution Support is engaged by opening a hardware ticket based on the LeSI Rack (Model 1410) or LeSI Client Site Integration Kit (Model 7X74). The LeSI Support team then will triage the issue and recommend next steps for you, including potentially to open tickets with other components of the solution.

For issues that require debugging beyond hardware and firmware (Driver, UEFI, IMM/XCC) an additional ticket will have to be opened with the software vendor (e.g. Lenovo SW Support or 3rd party SW vendor) to assist working towards a fix. The LeSI Support team will then work with the SW Support team in isolating root cause and fixing the defect

For more information about opening tickets, as well as the scope of support for different LeSI components, see the Lenovo Support Plan information page.

When a cluster ships the most recent Best Recipe is its compliant version, which is always defined exactly for that specific Scalable Infrastructure release and the cluster is delivered as a solution of that specific release. Using a Support call clients can request a review if their solution is also compatible with a newer Best Recipe release and if it is, are able to upgrade to that while maintaining solution interoperability support.

As long as a cluster (Model 1410, 7X74) is under Lenovo warranty or maintenance entitlement, full solution interoperability support will be provided for the original Best Recipes. Even when newer Best Recipes are available the previous Recipe will remain valid and supported.

Of course, any client is free to choose to not adhere to the Best Recipe and instead deploy different software and firmware versions or integrate other components that were not tested for interoperability. While Lenovo cannot warrant interoperability with those deviations from the tested scope, a client continues to receive full break & fix support for the components based on the individual warranty and maintenance entitlement of the components. This is comparable to the level of support clients will receive when not buying it as a LeSI solution, but building the solution from individual components – so-called “roll your own” (RYO).

In those cases, to minimize risk we suggest still staying as close as possible to the Best Recipe even when deviating. We also suggest when deviating first to test it on a small portion of the cluster and only roll it out completely if this test was stable.

For clients who need to upgrade the firmware or software of a component – for example due to OS entitlement support issues or Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) fixes – that is part of the best recipe, a support call should be placed on the 1410/7X74 rack and serial number. Lenovo product engineering will review the proposed changes, and advise the client on the viability of an upgrade path. If an upgrade can be supported and is performed, LeSI will note the change in the support records for the solution.
