Rated 5 out of 5 by from Provides the power and versatility needed to tackle demanding workloads What is our primary use case? We use this solution for virtualization purposes. We are running a huge amount of different VM's on them. How has it helped my organization? The usage of the server itself, the hardware specs of the specific models is more than enough for the project or projects' needs. The controllers which were used, or the hardware (HDDs or solid drives from Lenovo, which are used in this hardware) are more than enough for our project needs. Overall, the general configuration of the server, the system, truly covers the project needs. Most of our projects come with a pretty heavy workload. The server itself covers all of the bases — my clients are really happy with it. For example, one of the projects is from a medical laboratory company that provides services for medical institutions. There are a lot of workload calculations and Rack Servers covers the mix. What is most valuable? HP and Dell servers have multi-house technology that is really easy to use. We don't experience any problems with logging or gathering hardware information. The rest of the technical and software stuff is absolutely the same no matter the manufacturer. So, from a technical perspective, it is the same. The general purpose of this hardware is the same, the functionality is the same, it just goes by a different name. As I mentioned, the stability of the server itself is a benefit for me; it's more reliable now. What needs improvement? From my perspective, from my case usage, I wouldn't say that I have seen a lot of space for a general upgrade of the system. The technology is constantly developing. It's just a matter of the client or customer getting the most high-end service for a long period of time — for example, one or two years. In three years, this technology will be old and there will be new technology available. Presently, I wouldn't say that there is space for much improvement on the current servers. Technology is developing continuously. We are getting new high-end drives and so on. Technology development does not simply stop in its tracks, waiting until you adopt that server right now — in three to five years, it will be obsolete. You will be still able to buy some hardware in order to upgrade it because the platform itself is universal, but it's up to you whether you buy something old or something new and upgrade it. For how long have I used the solution? I have been using this solution for more than six years. What do I think about the stability of the solution? I would say the stability of the system itself would be the biggest advantage. I have worked with other manufacturers — Firmware for example — and they are not so stable. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? Your budget determines the scalability. It's absolutely scalable and you can upgrade the platform with the hardware you are planning to use. How are customer service and technical support? I have used their support from time to time, in some cases when I was unable to find immediate information. I don't remember if I contacted them directly or just used their website to gather information. There are a lot of cases where you can just find everything you need on their website. I would give their technical support a rating of nine. How was the initial setup? From an administrative perspective, the initial setup is absolutely straightforward. From a user's perspective, it not so straightforward if you want to add some features. The old servers don't have the stability needed to manage the storage from the remote management tool; it's not really comfortable, but still usable. It's absolutely fine when setting up the server. The basic setup takes less than one hour. It depends on where the servers are deployed from and how ready the server is. I mostly work remotely, so I am not hands-on with the server. Deployment is just a matter of the network and how it was prepared previously. At minimum, deployment takes one hour. What about the implementation team? Whether we use a deployment plan depends on the customer and their needs. The person who will be deploying the server should get the basic information on the needs of the project first, and compare it to the hardware specifications that this specific hardware or any specific hardware will provide. If there is a level for any upgrade, it's absolutely fine. The person should be looking for a solution that will cover the needs of the project with more than a difference of 100% for the future. The projects will increase the size of it, so the server should cover the current needs of the projects, plus 100%. What was our ROI? Our customers absolutely see a return on their investment with Lenovo Rack Servers. The price in comparison, for example, to deploying a cloud solution on a cloud platform, is fully coverable in terms of deploying the same solution on personal hardware. So yes, it's coverable. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? I don't really remember the prices for the servers but in comparison with the bigger players on the market, their prices are fine with me. They are not ideal because clients will always want a lower price. Regarding the licensing, I don't have any information on that because I wasn't facing any cases where we needed additional licensing on the servers. What other advice do I have? The general usage of the hardware itself is a level of education that you get during the process of the initial setup and further maintenance of the servers. That alone is very valuable. Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of nine. I cannot give it a higher rating because the perfect solution does not exist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and has pretty good pricing but requires better local support What is our primary use case? We primarily use the solution for a network server and file server. What is most valuable? The pricing is the most valuable aspect of the solution. The initial setup is easy. It's possible to scale the product. What needs improvement? The RAID Management and the RAID Configuration tools need to be improved. The RAID infrastructure needs some work. The RAID, MegaRAID, and Software RAID don't always hold the configurations. I have had multiple instances where I had to rebuild the server due to the RAID Configuration not holding. The RAID, the MegaRAID infrastructure need to improve. Local technical support could be better. The product should have out-of-plan management and be more reliable with controllers while offering better management features for the configuration and drivers. For how long have I used the solution? I've been using the solution for more than three years. What do I think about the stability of the solution? The solution is not stable. The servers tend to not be resilient. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? The solution is scalable. You can scale the racks. It's not a problem. We have about 200 users using the rack server at this time. We do not plan to increase usage at this time. How are customer service and support? Not much technical support is available locally. They need to offer better assistance in our area. Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch? We also use Dell and HP. How was the initial setup? The initial setup is pretty straightforward. It's not a complex process. The setup and deployment took maybe an hour or so. You need two people for deployment and maintenance. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? We pay to license on a yearly basis. I have an enterprise license. I just use that license from a non-government perspective. On top of that, there's the cost of renting any servers. I have to continuously be buying hard drives for it. In terms of the maintenance cost of the servers is high. Which other solutions did I evaluate? We also evaluated HP and Dell. What other advice do I have? We are a customer and an end-user. We don't have a special business relationship with Lenovo. I'd advise new users that, if they are looking for a more resilient and reliable server to run any critical applications on, I would choose either HP or Dell. They also offer better support and better response time. While HP and Dell servers may cost a little more, you get more value for your money. In general, I would rate the solution at a five out of ten. Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly reliable, helpful support, and hardware performs well What is our primary use case? We use the Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers for file, print, and storage servers. Additionally, for office collaboration. What is most valuable? The hardware performance is very valuable. What needs improvement? Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers does a very good job. However, what could be improved can be their Configurator because it's very bulky and it sometimes gives logical errors. The dashboard and customization can improve. For how long have I used the solution? I have been using Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers for a long time. What do I think about the stability of the solution? The reliability is extremely good. It is very stable, it can run forever. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers is scalable. however, in our case, we are a one-site office, we don't scale the solution that much. We look at the specifications and we use it until it is out of warranty and maybe we replace it or upgrade. How are customer service and support? The technical support is very good from Lenovo. How was the initial setup? The setup of Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers was simple. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? The price of Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers is competitive. Which other solutions did I evaluate? We did not evaluate other options because we are an IBM business partner. Lenovo is our go-to brand. What other advice do I have? I rate Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers an eight out of ten. Which deployment model are you using for this solution? On-premises Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:partner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable, and a market leader, but needs to be more competitively priced What is most valuable? They have taken over from IBM, which was the market leader. They have taken a lot of technology from IBM, and IBM always delivered very powerful hardware to the IT industry compared to Dell EMC or anyone else. They basically have a bit of an upper hand on the technology compared to any others in the market. The solution is stable. Setting up the product initially is simple. What needs improvement? The power consumption needs to be optimized in Lenovo. We also used Dell and find that is the case there as well. Though it has been optimized, we find it is still lacking for our conventions. The solution could lower its costs a bit to make it more competitive with, for example, Dell. Lenovo needs to modernize its components. They should be using proprietary products rather than getting third-party products for remote sensing or security deployed on their rack servers. For how long have I used the solution? I've been using the solution for five or six years at this point. It's been a while. We've used it as long as we've used Dell. What do I think about the stability of the solution? We've used the solution for a few years not, and haven't had any issues with the stability. Overall, it is good. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? If STI technology is employed, you can scale the solution. Otherwise, it doesn't really scale. Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch? I'm also using Dell EMC PowerEdge rack servers. We use both in our organization. The power of the hardware is very good on Dell, compared to Lenovo. The features of the hardware, the security features, in particular, are very good in Dell. How was the initial setup? The initial setup is easy. We didn't have any issues with the process. What about the implementation team? We had no need for outside engineers. We could handle the setup ourselves. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? The solution is a bit costly. We find Dell much more reasonably priced. What other advice do I have? I'm just a customer and an end-user. I definitely suggest potential users skip Lenovo and go for Dell EMC, which has good hardware, and great internal security components. I'd rate the solution at a seven out of ten. Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A cost-effective solution for enterprise-level computing with support What is our primary use case? Lenovo provides a very good solution for enterprise-level computing. They offer many channels, including ThinkAgile, a replacement for the late ThinkAgile virtualization platform at Mountaineer. In virtualization, we can use dial systems and other technologies. Lenovo also provides excellent storage, including high-density flash drives, SSD drives, and HDD drives. They recently launched the SR650 V3 and V4 servers, which feature the latest generation of processors. Lenovo also offers AMD series processors. Compared with other brands, they are giving up very good and latest technology. There is no complaint from the customer side. They are very much satisfied with this product. It offers various features, including software support and premium support. What is most valuable? Lenovo could improve its solution for blade servers. Many customers are still using blade servers. They are providing solutions for blade servers, but they have now moved on to completing the virtualization-based system. They have incorporated ESXi and have a joint venture with ESXi Solutions, and we are dealing with them. For how long have I used the solution? I have been using Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers for eight to ten years. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers are scalable in hardware and software from every department and area. They are a complete package from the Lenovo Infrastructure Solution Group. How are customer service and support? Lenovo's technical support is excellent. You can have a different warranty period or 24/7 technical support with premium services. Suppose you purchase 24/7 technical support and experience a system issue or failure. In that case, you can email the Lenovo team, and they will get back to you within two hours and respond within the specified resolution time. How would you rate customer service and support? Positive Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch? We have a partnership with Fujitsu and are authorized to sell Fujitsu products. Lenovo has had more features in its rack servers since around 2015, making it a leading provider of client and server solutions. Fujitsu only works with enterprise customers, while Lenovo works with a broader range of customers and offers a complete solution, including desktops, laptops, servers, and storage. We chose Lenovo to provide customers with a one-stop shop for all their IT needs. How was the initial setup? The initial setup takes approximately one week, depending on the customer’s requirements. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? The solution's pricing depends on the server's configuration. A higher-classification machine will be more expensive, while a standard machine will be reasonably priced. A basic machine will be the cheapest. What other advice do I have? We have a few main clients in Pakistan, and we are reducing our presence in Pakistan. We have deployed this solution with many pharmaceutical companies, tech side areas, and media systems. Overall, I rate the solution a nine out of ten. Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:partner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solution that offers user-friendly deployment and configuration processes but requires improvements in technical support What is our primary use case? Across my company's verticals, we cater to businesses in the BFSI and media industries. We deployed IBM servers under xSeries to serve these industries. We deployed over a thousand servers for rendering purposes at one customer's place. Our servers were sold to banking sites, payment gateway sites, small SME sectors, and large enterprise-sized customers. These servers were utilized for processing, OLTP, and OLAP. What is most valuable? The Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers have incorporated much of the technology from IBM, including several patent innovations. One is Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA), a feature that highly benefits customers, allowing them to determine failing parts and components. Additionally, Lenovo has introduced Lenovo XClarity and XClarity Orchestrator, tools that enable the management of multiple servers on a single console. The solution can be easily deployed and configured, and it can take care of the health of your servers. A feature known as Call Home alerts the service center in case of failing components. One of the main advantages of this tool is its ease of use, as it is a GUI-based tool needing a simple and easy configuration. These features are among the most important advantages of this solution. What needs improvement? To be frank, the technical support from Lenovo's team needs improvement. There seems to be a lack of support, and it is important for Lenovo to address this issue. I believe that it is important to provide more details about the issue. Sometimes, we have noticed that our workloads are not performing well due to server issues. It would be helpful to have a dashboard to identify these issues and explain why the server is not performing well. This is because the cause of the issue may vary depending on the application and process being used. For instance, customers have complained that after implementing a new server, the workloads are not performing as they did before. A dashboard that can identify these issues and provide relevant information can help address these concerns. In real-time, we should get an application to monitor the CPU, RAM, and hard disk. Though Lenovo offers XClarity software to its users, it just predicts the failures and does analyze the hardware. I believe a dashboard similar to the one in a car is necessary for real-time monitoring, including performance monitoring metrics. It would be helpful if the dashboard could indicate any potential issues in advance, just like how the lights in a car glow to indicate a fault area. For how long have I used the solution? I have been using Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers for two decades. Also, my company has a partnership with Lenovo. What do I think about the stability of the solution? It is a stable solution. As the authorized service providers for Lenovo and IBM, we are responsible for addressing all calls related to breakdowns. However, these days we no longer receive any such calls from customers. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? It is a scalable solution. How are customer service and support? The time that Lenovo's technical support team takes to provide a resolution to the issues we face needs improvement. In today's world, automated answers have made it possible to receive timely responses even when sending an email. With Lenovo, our major concern is the response time and the time it takes to provide a resolution. Also, there were instances when the technical support team failed to resolve our issues. How was the initial setup? The solution's initial setup process was straightforward. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? In India, the solution is cheap compared to its competitors. What other advice do I have? For those planning to use the solution, I advise them first to check their actual requirements. Then, they should learn from their team which product they are most comfortable with since adaptability is key. Adaptability may vary from person to person and from organization to organization. For example, if your existing team is accustomed to Dell and I introduce Lenovo to them, it may feel like an intrusion. In short, people's adaptability differs. Most system failures are due to humans, as we don't always follow proper procedures and steps to operate the solution. Based on my experience, the system never fails, and humans fail to operate the tool properly. With that being said, I recommend the solution to others. Overall, I rate the solution a seven out of ten. Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:

You can also easily connect the networks. It is also very easy to use and implement, and it comes with good support. What needs improvement? It should have tools for integration with the cloud. We should be able to transmit data from our on-premises server to the servers in the cloud. For how long have I used the solution? I have been using this solution for about eight years. What do I think about the stability of the solution? It has good stability. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? It is easy to scale. We have around 300 users. How are customer service and technical support? They provide good support. We have a software to communicate with them and get any help that we need. Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch? Before Lenovo, there was an IBM server. We started to use this server because it is easy to use for microservices, and there are many applications. How was the initial setup? The initial setup was straightforward. The deployment took about three months. We had to integrate microservices, and we also had applications. What about the implementation team? We deployed it ourselves. In the company, we have more than three people for its deployment and maintenance. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? It costs around $8,000. There is an additional cost for the support for a year. Which other solutions did I evaluate? Nutanix and HPE are also good options. Nutanix is a little expensive. HPE has only two servers, but we need three servers. What other advice do I have? It is a very good product. It is very easy to implement, and you can scale it easily. It is useful for us, and we plan to keep using it. When the company grows, we would add more servers. I would rate Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers an eight out of ten.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stability, easy mounting, and good support What is our primary use case? It is a large VMware virtualization environment on which our students and researchers are running all the machines. What is most valuable? We appreciate the stability and easy mountings of all the machines. We have some direct connections with IBM, Lenovo, and other companies, and we get close support from them. What needs improvement? It is quite an expensive product. Its price can be improved. For how long have I used the solution? I have been using this solution for a year. What do I think about the stability of the solution? It is very stable. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? It is scalable. We have 1,000 users. They are our students and researchers. We plan to keep on using this solution. How are customer service and technical support? We have some direct channels there. We also have a Lenovo mainframe at our site for demonstration purposes, and we have some direct connection with the engineers. How was the initial setup? The initial setup was straightforward. The deployment duration varies because sometimes the students are deploying it, and they take a little longer. Normally, it is quite fast. What about the implementation team? I am a part of the consulting team and a lecturer at the University. The implementation is done by some assistants to teach the students. We have four to five full-time people for its deployment and maintenance. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? It is too expensive. Because we are a university and we have to look for our money, many times we buy some refurbished machines or equipment at reasonable prices from IBM or Lenovo. We are a little bit limited in terms of money, and we buy as much as we can. If they were cheaper, we would buy more. What other advice do I have? I would recommend this solution to others. I would rate Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers a nine out of ten. It is just the price that lowers it to nine. Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

They offer us very good manufacturer support. Technical support has been very good and we've been satisfied with the level of service we get. The solution is very simple to install. What needs improvement? There are so many features, it's difficult to even use them all. Therefore, I don't believe there are any features that are lacking.

There aren't glitches and it doesn't crash or freeze. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? The solution can scale quite easily.

I am part of the consulting team. The work is done by some assistants or to teach a student as I'm a lecturer at the University. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the products in the market that is the easiest to set up and maintain What is our primary use case? In my company, the solution is used as a host of our data center and provides CPU power. What is most valuable? The most valuable feature of the solution is that it is the easiest product to set up and maintain. What needs improvement? Performance and scalability-wise, there are certain areas where the product lacks and needs improvement as it does not provide a lot of fancy features presently. In general, it is a normal product that is good enough for our company. For the time being, my company does not need any extra features. For how long have I used the solution? I have been using Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers for a year. What do I think about the stability of the solution? It is a very stable solution since I haven't seen any power outages yet. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? It is a scalable solution. You can buy the tool with CPU power and memory, making it a scalable product. A user needs to buy the host and run a lot of VMs on the host, and if there is not enough power range, then there is a need to buy an extra host, so it works on a per-host basis. How are customer service and support? For technical support, my company is in touch with one of Lenovo's licensed partners with whom we work, as they fix every product-related issue for us. I rate the technical support a nine out of ten. How would you rate customer service and support? Positive Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch? In the past, my company used HPE and Dell. Our company's partner installed IBM FlashSystem and has removed it as a standard product in the portfolio of products they maintain. My company wanted our partner to install a complete solution, so we followed their lead, and they installed Lenovo products with which they had a good experience. How was the initial setup? The product's initial setup phase was easy. The solution is deployed on an on-premises model. The solution's complete deployment phase takes two to three days. There is a lot of work to complete the migration part. What was our ROI? It is a pretty good tool if you want a product that offers value for money. With Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers, I have not seen any ROI from the use of the servers. Storage-wise, the tool does ensure that users experience an ROI from its use, especially considering how it solved all the performance issues my company faced in the past. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers are cheaper than HPE, so my company saw it as a product that is available at a bang for one's buck. What other advice do I have? Lenovo ThinkSystem Rack Servers is like buying a Volkswagen, which is a good car, but there are always better cars for which you have to pay more. It is a good product that offers value for money. It is not the best and most stable tool in the market, but it is good enough for my company. I rate the overall tool an eight out of ten.
