FlexPod Review

It gives us the ability to further deploy or to expand it, although in the config advisor tool, it should point out specific issues to fix.

Valuable Features

The most valuable features of the solution are the ease of support and industry leading technology – in storage, servers and networking, as well as virtualization.

Improvements to My Organization

  • Ease of troubleshooting is good
  • Ease of further deployment or expansion

Room for Improvement

In the config advisor tool, it could be more specific in pointing out or letting you know what to fix when it confronts issues.

Stability Issues

It’s extremely stable.

Scalability Issues

It’s extremely scalable, which is excellent. Either adding storage to the existing cluster, or more nodes, and then the same thing on the Cisco side – more blades or chassis – all of it is extremely easy.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

It's very responsive, good customer support.

Technical Support:

It's been efficient for the customers to call the NetApp support line and then they can help assist in opening cases with the other vendors.

Initial Setup

The setup is fairly straightforward. We have used all three vendors for a long time.
