FlexPod: a platform for your entire SAP landscape

Digital transformation is reshaping everything businesses do, including the adoption of new business models and simplified IT infrastructures that can scale and adapt with the requirements of mission-critical applications like SAP. FlexPod, from Cisco and NetApp, is a leader in converged data center architectures that provide a single point of management with Cisco Intersight, but allows you to scale each component on demand and in response to changing business needs.

With capabilities for replication, fast provisioning, cloning, and refresh processes, FlexPod is an excellent foundational infrastructure for SAP. FlexPod is flexible and agile enough to support either traditional SAP HANA deployment, or you can leverage the speed, quality and flexibility of FlexPod to provide SAP HANA as a service, or SAP with a third-party database. With FlexPod’s storage provisioning, performance, computing and scaling capabilities, you can add value and insight to your data. Stay on-premises with your data, or move to the hybrid cloud whenever and wherever you want, FlexPod is hybrid-cloud ready.
