FlexPod Review

Stable private cloud solution that has reduced our deployment time

What is our primary use case?

We use it for my private cloud. We are providing a service.

How has it helped my organization?

FlexPod has helped us reduce our time of deployment because we are really only missing integration with different applications.

It has also allowed us to streamline our IT administration.

What is most valuable?

The integration is something else.

The core cloud is a good feature. If we had a login that extended from the private cloud to the public cloud that would be the best, but it's up there.

The solution has granular scalability.

What needs improvement?

I would be interested to see more integration with other applications.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using FlexPod for four or five months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

FlexPod is very resilient. So far, it has been stable. Keep in mind we are still deploying it, so the real use case has yet to be seen.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability looks okay because it’s based on the capacity of the device, so I wouldn’t normally assume any scalability issue.

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support has been okay.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward, but the migration has taken some time.

What about the implementation team?

We used a reseller for the integration. 

What was our ROI?

FlexPod saves us money. There is definitely a return on our investment.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate FlexPod as seven or eight out of ten. It's too early to say anything, but for now, my only concern is the limited integration with applications.

The biggest lesson I learned was that from the automation point of view, this should be saving us time. When you’re doing it for the first time it’s not going to be very easy.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
