FlexPod Review

It has a validated design and architecture in a stable and scalable solution that expands with just the addition of more clusters.

Valuable Features

I think the validated design and architectures, and being able to call one of the parties for support and they can fix your problem is great.

Improvements to My Organization

We are installing our first NetApp component, and we are doing FlexPod certification as well. I think VDI will improve and the new storage system we are currently installing will help that as well.

Room for Improvement

I think that at this point I don’t know yet – it all sounds good.

Use of Solution

We have been using the components (VMware, Cisco and IBM) since 2001.

Stability Issues

I think it’s very stable.

Scalability Issues

Scalability is even better – you can expand it very easily with the clusters.

Customer Service and Technical Support

I would say that I don’t have much experience yet, but I look forward to being able to call one place instead of moving from vendor to vendor when there is an issue.

Initial Setup

It's pretty straightforward.

Implementation Team

We're using a vendor team.

Other Advice

I’d say its worth looking into – the community using it is a great resource.

Peer reviews are very important, as you're not getting a sales pitch, but real information.
