Lenovo Converged HX Series
The Era of Complicated, Costly & Unreliable IT is Over.
INTRODUCING LENOVO CONVERGED HX SERIES
Reliable. Flexible. Scalable.
Lenovo and Nutanix have partnered to deliver the Lenovo Converged HX Series Nutanix appliances, a best-in-class hyperconverged system with Nutanix’s industry-leading software preloaded on Lenovo server platforms.
Ideal for all virtual applications, HX Series appliances deliver extreme reliability, dependable security, extensive and predictable scalability, simplified management, and faster time-to-value. At the same time, it reduces total cost of ownership (TCO), which enables your IT to focus on innovation and deliver value to your business.
The threefold goal of the HX Series appliances is to simplify IT infrastructure, reduce costs and accelerate time-to-value, and deliver greater reliability. To do so, HX Series appliances have been designed with customized models, each optimized for specific workloads, including some that offer massive scalability.
Nutanix software is at the heart of Lenovo Converged HX Series appliances. It converges the entire data centre stack – including compute, storage, storage networking and virtualization – into a single, Lenovo Intel Xeon based system (known as a node) deployed in scale-out clusters.
Lenovo HX Series & Nutanix Software
The Nutanix software that ships with HX Series appliances has two components: Acropolis and Prism.
Acropolis is a hybrid cloud operating system with enterprise storage and virtualization services, and the ability for applications to move seamlessly across hypervisors and back-up data to cloud providers. According to IDC, 80% of enterprises are currently or plan to run more than one hypervisor in the next 12-24 months.
Prism is a single management console that uses advanced data analytics and heuristics to simplify and streamline common workflows, eliminating the need for separate management solutions for servers, storage networks, storage and virtualization.
How Nutanix software is deployed
A Lenovo Converged HX cluster is 100% software defined. Each node in a cluster runs the Nutanix AHV hypervisor, and the Nutanix software operates as a virtual machine called the Controller VM (CVM) that runs on every node in the cluster. This allows Nutanix systems to be hypervisor agnostic. The CVM includes Nutanix Prism management functions and Acropolis data services functions.
We see many companies shifting a major portion of their SAP landscape into the cloud, and we run mission-critical applications and solutions for them. If a customer’s SAP solution is not available, their business is immediately disrupted. This is how we always try to look at our service, through our customers’ eyes. Outages cost more than money: they impact trust, service and confidence. Our Lenovo systems provide a flexible, scalable architecture that helps us manage our ongoing rapid growth in cloud services.
