Reduced the complexity of our network monitoring but the setup is complex

Our primary use case for this solution is for educational content.

This solution has improved our organization in the way that we now require fewer employees. It has reduced the complexity of our network monitoring. 

It has reduced the workload on our network admins and our network availability has been reduced. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of this solution are instant scalability and reliability. The solution has good granularity in terms of network visibility.

The main area that this solution has room for improvement is in Cisco support.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of the solution is very good. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is good.

How are customer service and technical support?

FlexPod's technical support is bad, as with everything regarding Cisco support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup for FlexPod is complex.

What about the implementation team?

We used a consultancy company for the implementation. 

What other advice do I have?

The solution forces us to ACI to make quotas and we will do that.

FlexPod supports both traditional and SCN reduced costs.

On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this product a seven. It's not perfect.

I believe that FlexPod is the best solution.
