Virtualized environments enable enterprises to quickly provision new users, maintain compliance across desktops and servers, and scale on demand without adding cost prohibitive hardware to the budget. FlexPod, from Cisco and NetApp, is purpose-built for high-capacity virtualized environments that enable enterprise workloads to function seamlessly at scale. And, with easy configuration and management, FlexPod allows businesses to scale globally while reducing both operational and capital costs.
“Our average server build time has been reduced by nearly 75%, from four hours to one hour. Additionally, due to ongoing initiatives to leverage FlexPod in other areas, we also reclaimed almost 62U of rack space.”
– Shawn Foran, Senior Manager, Core IT Operations, ICON
