Lenovo ThinkAgile VX 8-Socket Node for SAP HANA

Introduction

Lenovo ThinkAgile VX Nodes for SAP HANA are designed for deploying industry-leading Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) software from VMware on Lenovo enterprise platforms. They deliver fully validated and integrated Lenovo hardware and firmware that is certified with VMware software. VMware offers a unique, software-defined approach to HCI with VMware vSphere and VMware vSAN to provide enterprise-class compute, storage, and management in a tightly integrated software stack. This document provides details on 8-socket server configurations.
