FlexPod Resiliency

Have you found this solution to be resilient? If yes, why?

Tariq Ejaz
Systems Manager at Marcum Technology
We have found the solution to be resilient. We test it. Before we turned over the product to the customer we did a lot of testing. No single point of failure. VMware, UCS, NetApp, we pulled cables, we did failovers, everything was seamless. Very good.

System Engineer at Missile Defense Agency
The solution is very resilient, to the point that sometimes we didn't even know it went down, because we don't actually look at our log at times. We find components that were down but it just moves and takes care of itself.

I find it very resilient. I would trust FlexPod to the point that I would put a lot of different stuff on it.

In terms of resiliency, we've tested the failover from pulling direct cables between Fabric Interconnects, IOM modules, our Switch Fabric, we've rebooted things in the middle of the day and we've never had an outage.

For our Epic environment, aside from an environmental data center problem, a heating issue, we have not had any issues whatsoever with the infrastructure. From a resilience perspective, we've set it and we've been able to forget it for the most part.

We had issues where we had some of the aisle modules failed. Even though its half the system, it was still up and no one actually knew why it was down. It was down for a few days before we could get it fixed. However, it didn't affect anybody else and that includes our major environment. This was at one of our bigger sites and nothing happened.

It is resilient with no downtime. If I needed any storage or shelf tomorrow, I would just add it to our cluster and there would be no downtime. This is one of the best things about FlexPod.

The solution is resilient. It is easy to spin up another blade with the same service profile as the existing one, then within seconds you are up and running. This can also be done in combination with VMware SRM, Oracle Data Guard, or one of the other vendors' software solutions on top with little downtime.

Aaron Kimball
Solutions Architect at GDT - General Datatech
The solution is resilient. There is a redundancy that is built inside of the platform, even down to the power.
It allows for easy scaling. You can scale within or outside of it. So, it's resilient and scalable, which makes it a great platform.

We have good resiliency with our FlexPods. I don't know if we've taken advantage of the built-in HA.

Julie Gutierrez
Systems Engineer at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
I have found the platform to be resilient, mainly because all the hardware is fault-tolerant. It has built-in HA, so if one of the components goes down, you're covered by the platform itself.

There is a lot of resiliency now. We do not need to configure the product once it is built. This was not the case in the earlier days of the product.

Senior Storage Engineer at a tech vendor with 1,001-5,000 employees
It is somewhat resilient. If your company has equally scaled growth in all area, then maybe FlexPod is good. However, if your network is growing 200 percent, but the storage is only 100 percent, or maybe the company is only 50 percent, then the apps didn't scale up right. This will create bigger challenges.

The solution is resilient. It is very simple for patching or anything because FlexPod is a solution made to fit all the different companies in the big picture. Upgrades trickle down to all different parts of the product. This avoids patching problems at the part level.

This is a resilient solution. We have a lot of clusters set up, and we haven’t had to worry about server failures because when we do have a server fail, the other ones pick up the workload pretty seamlessly.

Any single point of failure has been removed from the FlexPods, so they all have multiple redundancies built in.
