ThinkAgile CX Series solutions will ship in as little as 3 weeks from ordering. This is twice as fast as some other converged infrastructure (CI) stacks. The solution arrives integrated in a rack with all the hardware your customers need for work-loads: servers, storage, and network switches, plus essential software tools. Everything is pretested, factory configured, and delivered ready to go. All your customers have to do is power it on to begin managing the infrastructure as a single system, rather than as individual components.
ThinkAgile CX Series is designed to integrate into your customers' existing infrastructure effortlessly, thereby reducing deployment time and saving them time and money. With preintegration and prevalidation, customers can deploy workloads in hours—not weeks—and see substantial savings: as much as 33 percent lower installation cost versus other CI stacks, and even larger savings compared to traditional infrastructure.
Nimble InfoSight Predictive Analytics automates the storage related tasks traditionally handled by Level 1 and 2 support staff. This allows your customers to resolve many issues themselves without the need for a support call. And Predictive Analytics is not limited to diagnosing storage issues; in fact, 54 percent of issues found are not even storage-related.
