    Manage Hardware Like Software

    HTML tutorial

    Lenovo XClarity is a fast, flexible, and scalable hardware systems management application that enables administrators to deploy infrastructure faster and with less effort. The application seamlessly integrates into Lenovo servers, Flex System, RackSwitch networking, and S Series storage.

    Simplify

    Administrators are able to find the right information and accomplish critical tasks faster through an uncluttered, dashboard-driven graphical user interface (GUI). Centralizing and automating foundational infrastructure deployment and lifecycle management tasks across large pools of systems frees up administrator time, and makes resources available to end-users faster.

    Accelerate

    Automate and scale IT infrastructure deployment with XClarity to reduce time to market of new systems and free up valuable administrator time to focus on other high-value projects. 

    Integrate

    Deploy and manage Lenovo infrastructure from your own IT applications by developing custom integration using XClarity’s web-based REST APIs or XClarity Integrator software plugins for common IT applications.
