Lenovo Flex System Review

Very stable, we use it for private cloud services.

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for private cloud services.

What needs improvement?

It does not have the same module flexibility that was present in IBM Blade. On the Blade System, I was able to choose between the Cisco module, or BMC module. Since the switch to Lenovo, I have not had the same choice of modules, only the BMC modules.

In terms of new features, I would like to see the Flex System manager integrate into the acquisition. It is necessary to have something like a Flex System manager to allow for the management of single or multiple items in one place.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the Lenovo Flex System since 2012 when it was still part of IBM.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The Lenovo Flex System is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The system is scalable.

How was the initial setup?

The solution is easy to use and takes two or three days to set up the storage, network, and virtualization.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is interesting. I am able to quote a client based on their needs and offer them either Lenovo or Dell.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Lenovo.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
