Simplify Deployment and Accelerate Business Value

Today’s typical data centre has multiple generations of servers, operating systems, storage and hypervisors. IT managers must juggle complex tasks while maintaining legacy hardware and software. Implementing a next-generation hyper-converged appliance can substantially reduce this complexity, resulting in significant added value over an incredibly short time.

Hyper-converged solutions powered by Nutanix software reduce the total cost of ownership of IT infrastructure by up to 60%, as validated by IDC. Lenovo Converged HX Series appliances are expected to deliver similar cost savings and business value by marrying world-class Lenovo servers with Nutanix web-scale software.
