The broad spectrum use of Microsoft Productivity Applications, such as Microsoft Office, SharePoint, and Exchange, can pose management challenges inside any organization. Between provisioning new users, distribution of patches and updates, security concerns and licensing, centralized management and virtualization are required to coordinate all the moving parts. FlexPod with All Flash FAS provides a robust backbone for productivity application deployment and management, enabling rapid deployment of virtualized environments.
“We have a complex environment with more than 500 VMs running a mix of academic and departmental applications. We are heavy users of Oracle and PeopleSoft, MS Exchange for on-premise email as well as SharePoint and SQL Server.”
– James Duncan, Senior Technology Architect at Sheridan College
