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

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. Lenovo XClarity, a fast and intuitive resource management tool, 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 8 years running, Lenovo servers have ranked as the industry’s most reliable x86 platforms. Enhanced with faster processors and memory, Lenovo platforms hold more than 294 current performance world records, so you can run your workloads with blazing-fast speed^. New refreshed HX series featuring the latest technological advancements in processing with 4th Gen processors from AMD processors is now available with more cores and greater GPU density.

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