Lenovo Flex System Review

Easy to use, stable, and good support

What is our primary use case?

We are using Lenovo Flex System for our internal platform where we store our operating systems, Windows, Linux, and VMware. VMware vCenter is where we store it and then virtualize our machines.

What is most valuable?

One of the most valuable features of this solution is its ease of use.

What needs improvement?

The solution could improve by providing more integration with other platforms.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Lenovo Flex System for approximately nine years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have found the solution to be stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable. You can buy a chassis with the minimum nodes and then scale them up to a maximum of 14 nodes.

We had approximately 2,000 clients that were using the solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

In my experience the support was good.

How was the initial setup?

The installation was not easy.

What about the implementation team?

We used a third-party vendor for the implementation. 

We had a team of 10 for the deployment of the support infrastructure.

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

There is a one-off payment to buy the equipment and the support is purchased annually.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others.

I rate Lenovo Flex System an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
