Solutions Made Simple

Lenovo Scalable Infrastructure (LeSI) is a framework for the development, configuration, building, delivery, and support of integrated data center solutions. Deploying solutions for Technical Computing, high performance computing (HPC), Analytics and Cloud environments can place a significant burden on IT. LeSI leverages decades of Lenovo server experience to reduce the complexity of deployment. LeSI provides the flexibility and choice of configured systems, factory-integrated solutions, or fully end-to-end supported solutions that match best-in-industry components with optimized solution design.

With LeSI, clients can focus their efforts on maximizing business value, instead of consuming valuable resources to design, optimize, install, and support the infrastructure required to meet business demands. Many customers opt for a complete, ready-to-run solution with networking, on-site install, cabling, system labeling, data center consultation, and services that provide an optimized design for each customer environment.

LeSI Components

LeSI solutions feature industry-leading Lenovo servers encompassing powerful Intel® Xeon® processors, Lenovo storage, Open Source and OEM software, and best-of-breed third-party components (especially in networking and acceleration). Lenovo thoroughly tests and optimizes all LeSI components for reliability, interoperability, and maximum performance so clients can quickly deploy the system and get to work achieving their business goals.

 LeSI Factory Integrated

Regardless at what scale clients are deploying Technical Computing and HPC, it is critical for them to get up and running quickly. When ordered pre-integrated, LeSI provides faster time to production for clients with fully configured, racked, and cabled delivery of the client’s solution. Lenovo delivers the highest quality with systems arriving ready to deploy. Solutions are pre-cabled and burned-in by manufacturing.

 LeSI Cluster Solutions

LeSI offers solution level support for HPC configurations with tested OEM hardware. The extensive testing results in a best recipe release of software and firmware levels guaranteed to work seamlessly together. LeSI Cluster Solutions are built, tested, delivered, and installed by Lenovo and supported as a single solution, instead of being treated as hundreds of individual components. Lenovo provides single point of contact, solution-level support that includes both Lenovo server and third-party components to deliver maximum system availability throughout the life of the system so clients can spend less time maintaining systems and more time delivering results.
