Modernize the Right Way (for You!) with Lenovo ThinkAgile VX
One of the greatest selling points of public cloud providers is the dynamic scalability of compute and storage capacity, helping companies ride the waves of demand increases and lulls. But migrating to the cloud – fully or partially – will not be the best solution for every company. By pooling compute and storage resources from a cluster of servers and allocating them in response to the needs of your business applications, hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) achieves similar benefits to cloud dynamic scaling for on-prem infrastructure. With the Lenovo ThinkAgile VX, powered by VMware vSphere and vSAN, companies can achieve the agile and scalable platform they need to support modern application development.
With the ThinkAgile VX series, Lenovo provides a comprehensive HCI solution. The core HCI function leverages VMware’s vSphere, the leading server virtualization application, and vSAN, which extends virtualization capabilities to storage resources. The result is a massive return on investment, a significant reduction in TCO, and critically reduced time for firmware updates.
Lenovo’s integrated systems are simple to set up and operate, with new VX Series typically up and running within hours rather than days or weeks, and certified firmware updates are provided over the entire course of the system’s life via vSphere Lifecycle Manager (vLCM). The full solution is managed centrally with Lenovo XClarity Integrator for VMware vCenter and VMware vSphere, capturing proactive platform alerts and insights that mean administrators can take action to reduce or avoid downtime.
Each of the ThinkAgile VX Series models arrives preconfigured, pretested, and optimized, integrating especially easily into existing VMware environments. Application data can be backed up with Veeam Availability Suite, included with the system. And for companies that prefer even greater flexibility, Lenovo offers the ThinkAgile VX Series systems as an Infrastructure As A Service (IaaS) solution thanks to Lenovo TruScale, offering all of the advantages of the ThinkAgile VX series in a pay-as-you-go model that includes proactive monitoring, management, and services around the clock.
With ThinkAgile VX, companies can refresh and modernize their IT infrastructure, adding the dynamic scaling capabilities of the public cloud without sacrificing their on-prem setup to support the rollout of cloud services both within the organization and for their clients and partners.
