Lenovo and Nutanix work together to build innovative solutions for AI use cases with efforts to create more solutions to operate advanced scenarios. The ThinkAgile HX solutions powered by NVIDIA GPUs are validated to accelerate the time to value and meet customer requirements across all business verticals.


The demand and growth of AI applications and workloads across the world have been remarkable. Within the realm of AI, generative AI takes center stage, designed to generate fresh data, multimedia, images, code, and various other content without the need for explicit human intervention.

These techniques harness deep learning algorithms, learning from extensive datasets to recognize patterns and produce new content reminiscent of the original data.

This becomes crucial as organizations endeavor to harness the extensive data they accumulate each day, making AI applications an imperative component for the construction of a proficient data-driven enterprise.

In addition to numerous other applications, use cases include:

  • Video and multimedia content generation
  • Customer service chatbots
  • Translation services
  • Software programming and testing
  • Computer vision and verification systems
  • Optimization of medical device designs

Redefining Hyperconverged environments with AI

In hyperconverged environments the integration of AI marks a significant leap in enterprise computing capabilities. From content generation and natural language interaction to content style imitation and even predictive analytics, enterprises can leverage artificial intelligence for a wide range of applications.

Inferencing in AI is the process of making predictions and decisions and generating output based on a trained model, applied to large data sets including new ones. For example, if models are trained to identify plants in images, AI inferencing will help in automatically identifying plants in new images that’s it’s never seen before.

AI Inferencing on ThinkAgile HX integrates advanced AI into core business processes.

Unlocking the power of AI with NVIDIA AI Enterprise

NVIDIA AI Enterprise is a high-performance, secure, cloud-native AI software platform built with enterprise-grade security, stability, manageability, and support for creating and deploying AI models. It addresses the complexities of organizations trying to build and maintain a complex AI software stack that builds on over 4,500 unique software packages: 64 NVIDIA CUDA® libraries and more than 4,471 third-party and open-source software (OSS) packages. The platform maintains API stability and the 9,000+ dependencies between these unique software packages.

NVIDIA AI Enterprise, as a full AI software stack, accelerates AI pipelines and streamlines development and deployment of production AI covering a wide range of use cases.
