  • 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.

Software

VMware vSAN, vSphere, and vCenter Server software are required for ThinkAgile VX Series Appliances (Integrated Systems) and Certified Nodes. For Appliances/Integrated Systems, you are required to purchase VMware vSAN licenses for VX Series from Lenovo. For Certified Nodes, you can purchase the vSAN licenses from Lenovo or from VMware, or you can use your existing licenses. For vSphere and vCenter Server, you can use the existing VMware software licenses and active support contracts, or you can purchase software licenses and support from Lenovo or VMware.

For details and ordering information, see the VMware Software Solution Product Guide:
https://lenovopress.com/lp1265-vmware-software-solution-product-guide

Configuration notes:

  • The selection of vSAN licenses is required: Standalone licenses, HCI bundle licenses, VDI solution licenses, or VCF licenses.
  • VMware software licenses that are available for selection include 1-year, 3-year, or 5-year software support (matches the duration of the selected solution-level warranty period).
  • The quantity of processor-based licenses is derived by the configuration tool based on the number of processors selected.

Optional Lenovo Professional Services are available to deploy SAP HANA software stack at the customer site.

Warranty and Support

The VX3520-G, VX5520, VX7520 and VX 2U Certified Nodes have a 3-year warranty based on the machine type:

  • 7Y94 - 3 year warranty

The ThinkAgile VX Series Appliances can be configured with a three- or five-year hardware warranty with 24x7 ThinkAgile Advantage Single Point of Support (Lenovo server hardware and VMware software; requires an active software support contract purchased either from VMware or Lenovo) 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 VMware, on behalf of the customer, for software-related problem determination. VMware will contact the customer and will own the software-related problem resolution until closure.

The standard warranty terms are customer-replaceable unit (CRU) and onsite (for field-replaceable units FRUs only) with standard call center support during normal business hours and 9x5 Next Business Day Parts Delivered.

Lenovo’s additional support services provide a sophisticated, unified support structure for your data center, with an experience consistently ranked number one in customer satisfaction worldwide. Available offerings include:

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 and is optional with Foundation Service. It is bundled with Essential Service and Advanced Service.

  • Health Check

    Having a trusted partner who can perform regular and detailed health checks is central to maintaining efficiency and ensuring that your systems and business are always running at their best. Health Check supports Lenovo-branded server, storage, and networking devices, as well as select Lenovo-supported products from other vendors that are sold by Lenovo or a Lenovo-Authorized Reseller.

Examples of region-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 spare parts.

Lenovo Service offerings are region-specific. Not all preconfigured support and upgrade options are available in every region. For information about Lenovo service upgrade offerings that are available in your region, refer to the following resources:
