Let us show you the speed of Flash and the value of a pre-validated architecture.
The challenges are real.
In a recent survey by IDG Research Services, 90 percent of respondents have either already implemented converged infrastructure (CI) or have added it to their plan for the near future.
Companies see the value of an integrated approach to application delivery, but many IT leaders aren’t even sure where to begin. The risks of short-term disruptions, as well as long-term architectural inflexibility are daunting.
And so are the benefits.
According to Gartner, Cisco's partnering strategy has expanded since 2014 to include many more choices for integrated systems. Today, Cisco's Unified Computing System (UCS) integrated infrastructure portfolio are all built on the NetApp FlexPod reference architecture paradigm.
This architecture combines best-in-class computing, network and storage solutions from Cisco, NetApp and Softchoice to:
- Deploy the precise proportion of Flash to spinning media for your specific application or environment with All-Flash FAS
- Keep your business applications running using FlexPod Datacenter with Microsoft SQL Server AlwaysOn software
- Reduce risk, so you can focus on what matters, when you allow Keystone Managed Services to deliver your maintenance activities
Simply put, FlexPod is one of the fastest next-generation data centers 'in-a-box' you can buy: it's simple, powerful and validated for your needs.
