Lenovo HX Series Hyper-converged Solutions

Designed for easy deployment and manageability in scale-out clusters, the Lenovo Converged HX Series integrates Nutanix software onto Lenovo’s highly reliable and scalable servers. These appliances ship fully integrated, tested, and configured so that you can dramatically accelerate your time to market and reduce your infrastructure maintenance time and costs.

Eliminate IT Silos

Today’s IT infrastructure is complex, costly and increasingly difficult to manage in silos. Multiple generations and varieties of servers, operating systems, hypervisors, and storage devices require IT departments to spend all their time on maintenance instead of helping to grow the business. New hyperconverged offerings from Lenovo help break down these silos to dramatically reduce server, storage and virtualization complexity in data centers of all sizes.

Lenovo Converged HX Series

Reliable. Flexible. Scalable

The Lenovo Converged HX Series integrates software from the market leader in hyperconvergence, Nutanix, onto Lenovo’s highly reliable and scalable servers. The flexible building block of fully integrated and tested compute, storage, and preloaded virtualization management software enables easy scale-out clusters to support your business growth, while containing your data center footprint.

When deployed in clusters, the Lenovo Converged HX Series pools compute and storage into a single shared virtual structure for more efficient resource utilization and easy management through a single interface. As a result, you can spend dramatically less time managing your IT and more time focusing on your core business.

Nutanix Hyper-converged Solution

Nutanix Enterprise Cloud combines the agility and simplicity of the public cloud, with the security and control you need in a private cloud. Built on the industry’s leading hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) technology, it integrates compute, storage, virtualization and networking in a full-stack solution that runs nearly any application.

Nutanix enables IT teams to build and operate powerful multi-cloud architectures. Our Enterprise Cloud OS software melds private, public and distributed cloud operating environments and provides a single point of control to manage IT infrastructure and applications at any scale.

Nutanix solutions are 100% software-based, and are built on the industry’s most popular hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) technology, delivering a full infrastructure stack that integrates compute, virtualization, storage, networking and security to power any application, at any scale.

Nutanix software runs across different cloud environments to harmonise IT operations and bring frictionless mobility to all applications.

The growing demands of enterprise applications and the fast pace of modern business threaten to put legacy IT design — with separate storage, storage networks and servers — at risk of failure. The silos created by traditional datacenter infrastructure often present barriers to change and progress, adding complexity to every step from ordering to deployment to management.

Hyperconverged infrastructure streamlines the deployment, management and scaling of datacenter resources by combining x86-based server and storage resources with intelligent software in a turnkey software-defined solution. Separate servers, storage networks and storage arrays can be replaced with a single hyperconverged solution to create an agile datacenter that easily scales with your business.
