Lenovo TruScale Infrastructure Services is an as-a-Service acquisition model for its product portfolio which includes ThinkSystem and ThinkAgile servers. Other Lenovo products delivered as a service include storage and Silicon as-a-Service based in Intel’s offering of the same name.

TruScale Infrastructure Services is subscription-based and allows customers to use and pay for Lenovo server hardware which is often integrated with OEM software such as Microsoft Azure Stack, Nutanix, and VMware vSAN HCI with hardware support services provided by Lenovo. TruScale can be applied to an on premises data center or another customer-preferred location such as a colocation facility. Customers are not required to purchase equipment or to separately license the pre-integrated software.

On September 8, 2021, Lenovo added three new HCI-based solutions to the TruScale Infrastructure Services portfolio. These include:

  • VMware Edge Cloud Solution – VMware Edge Cloud software integrated with two ThinkSystem SE350 Edge servers and networking
  • VMware Cloud Foundation software on ThinkAgile VX HCI (available December 2021) – Hybrid Cloud IaaS solution includes VMware vSAN, Tanzu and Cloud Operations. This is a VMware Cloud Verified solution
  • Microsoft Azure Stack HCI software on ThinkAgile MX HCI (available December 2021 from Lenovo partners only) – Hybrid Cloud IaaS solution with Azure Stack HCI software

Customers can now acquire these HCI systems on an as-a-service basis directly from Lenovo or Lenovo partners. When a TruScale System is delivered by a partner, the customer can take advantage of whatever additional services are offered by the partner.
Available worldwide, TruScale as-a-Service offerings can be acquired through Lenovo sales representatives and channel partners world-wide. In addition, Lenovo partners can layer-on their own services.


TruScale Infrastructure Services are offered for any ThinkSystems or ThinkAgile configuration. Lenovo integrates these platforms with Nutanix HCI, Microsoft Azure Stack or VMware vSAN software onto Lenovo’s hardware platform. System platforms now offered under TruScale Infrastructure Services include:

• ThinkAgile HX with Nutanix HCI
• ThinkSystem VX with VMware vSAN
• VMware Edge Cloud solution on ThinkSystem platforms
• VMware Cloud Foundation on ThinkAgile HX (Hybrid Cloud IaaS)
• Microsoft Azure Stack HCI on ThinkAgile MX (Hybrid Cloud IaaS)

Both TruScale Hybrid Cloud IaaS offerings include the ability to have workloads running on premises and in Azure as part of the service offering.
