FlexPod Review

It's a flexible, stable solution that allows us to use the various component together with few outages.

Valuable Features

The most valuable feature is the flexibility and the ability to use the various components nicely together.

Stability Issues

It's very good as we've had very few outages.

Scalability Issues

I think its pretty good. We have been able to grow our environment without any major reconfigurations.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

NetApp support is great.

We had an issue with one of our UCS plates and we thought it was an issue with NetApp, but then ultimately it was an issue with Cisco and we would have had to open multiple tickets.

However, with FlexPod being a joint solution of NetApp and Cisco, having to get support only through NetApp solved our issue quicker.

Technical Support:

I personally only worked with NetApp support, which has been very good.

Initial Setup

Initial setup was straightforward.

Other Advice

It's well worth looking into.
