FlexPod Review

It makes us more lateral and faster to production

What is our primary use case?

Our use case is for a life sciences cloud offering.

How has it helped my organization?

It makes us more lateral and faster to production.

What is most valuable?

Quick deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have not really heard any complaints from our storage engineers.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is pretty flexible. We are able to deploy faster.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not personally used support. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using a different solution between Hitachi and other NetApp solutions. 

We switched to FlexPod for its flexibility and quicker deployment. Also, we use other NetApp products.

How was the initial setup?

I was involved in the networking side of the initial setup. It was pretty straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We did the installation with a core internal team. We had some NetApp help for the storage guys, but for the network portion, it was more self-explanatory.

What other advice do I have?

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: flexibility and licensing costs.
