FlexPod Review

We can roll it out by simply ordering another pod and having CDW and engineers install it.

Valuable Features

We can already see that the most valuable features is that everything is tested and certified to work together.

The package price is also something we like about it.

Room for Improvement

I don’t think we have enough experience at this point to see the weak points.

Use of Solution

We have been using it for three to five months.

Stability Issues

We're migrating to it now and so far, compared to HP and our Dell chassis which was an old environment, it has taken care of the performance and reliability issues we were having.

Scalability Issues

The scalability seems to be a valuable feature to me; it's easy to roll out, as we just order another pod they install it.

Customer Service and Technical Support

I'm only involved with the storage aspect so we work with NetApp, whose service is excellent.

Initial Setup

I'm not involved much in setup, but we architected it and we had CDW and engineers help us who did the physical installation.

Other Advice

It all depends on your specific needs and what you're looking for, which depends on your environment.
