  • Advanced capacity management, including deduplication, compression, and erasure coding (RAID 5/6), which helps deliver greater storage utilization with dramatically lower storage capacity and costs.
  • Automation of VM storage provisioning and control of storage service levels (capacity, performance, availability) with VM-centric policies to load balance storage resources.
  • Native HCI security solution with two-factor authentication (SecurID and CAC) and data-at-rest encryption that does not require self-encrypting drives (SEDs).
  • Stretched cluster with local and site failure protection between two geographically dispersed sites for higher level of availability with near zero downtime.
  • Centralized management with provisioning, administering, and monitoring virtual resources across multiple hosts and clusters from a centralized interface.
  • Rapid workload provisioning, simplified data center operations, increased business efficiency, and decreased CAPEX and OPEX costs.
  • VM and data protection with agent-less, image-level virtual machine backups and application-aware protection for business-critical Microsoft applications (Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint) along with WAN-efficient, encrypted backup data replication.
  • Reduced unplanned downtime and virtually eliminated planned downtime for server and storage maintenance with live workload migration, high availability, and fault tolerance.
  • Enhanced application performance and availability with resource management, load balancing, and access prioritization.
  • Intelligent operations management and automation to proactively monitor and manage compute, storage, and networking resources, identify performance bottlenecks, and re-balance workloads by leveraging predictive analytics.
  • Capacity planning and optimization guidance to address future needs with performance trends, projections and extended forecasts.
  • Managing remote offices and branch offices with rapid provisioning of servers through virtualization, minimization of host configuration drift, and enhanced visibility into regulatory compliance, across multiple sites.

Models

Factory-integrated models of the ThinkAgile VX Series Appliances are configured by using the Lenovo Data Center Solution Configurator (DCSC), http://dcsc.lenovo.com.

During the configuration process, you are selecting one of the Configure-to-Order (CTO) base models first, and then you are adding components (processors, memory, drives, and network adapters) to the selected model.

Note: You are required to engage a Lenovo representative in the project that includes the ThinkAgile VX Series Appliances. ThinkAgile VX certified nodes do not have this requirement.

The following table lists the CTO base models.

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 spare parts.
