Have you saved time or money for new service deployments? If yes, how many hours or dollars?

Tariq Ejaz
Systems Manager at Marcum Technology
We have definitely saved time for new service deployments, on the order of weeks - two months, three months.

We save time and money with the solution but I don't know how to quantify them because we only have a few physical servers. Everything has been built into it so we haven't had to buy things. So we're not aware of what it would have cost us, by not going with it, because we went all-in on the FlexPod design.

Lead of the Server and Storage Team at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
We save days of work when doing new service deployments. With LUN clones we have a template provisioned for the image of our hypervisor on our NetApp, and we can deploy a brand new hypervisor in under an hour. Everything is scripted. We just clone a template LUN and boot from SAN, so there are no single points of failure. There is no spinning disk left in the data center.

We have saved time and money for new service deployments. Without FlexPod, it probably takes about ten hours. With FlexPod, within two hours, we are up and running. So, we have seen about an 80 percent time decrease.

Coming from a rack and stack server model to FlexPod, it has saved us a lot of time (approximately hundreds to thousands of hours).

Capacity Manager at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
It has saved our engineers time. The initial setup to get the service profile set up took some time, but now each new blade that is put in is up and running in ten minutes. The previous service that we had would have taken about half a day to a day.

We can just swap in new equipment or hardware as we need, which has probably saved us several weeks.

Manager of Network Services at a legal firm with 501-1,000 employees
We have saved time with Snapshots, SnapMirrors, and backup and DR capabilities versus other platforms that we have looked at in the past. However, for new deployments, we have not saved, because we don't have any automation on top for deploying VMs or shares. It doesn't really seem to be part of the FlexPod platform.

We have saved time, money, space, and power consumption on new service deployments. We have a data center in Toronto which had ten racks on one of the new servers. This was all reduced to two racks with six chassis, which is amazing.

I have saved time on new service deployments. I've done deployments in under a week, and if it's a cloud-based deployment, it's even faster.

It saves a lot of time because it is a single product. We also save time with the installation.

Storage Engineer Manager at Servix informatics
Because the solution is now stable, we are saving about $100 million USD a year.
We have save time because the implementation is easier and money because we have minimized support issues.

Since the addition of nodes, it is all automated now. What would normally take us around three to five hours in the past, has come down to 15 minutes to half an hour, creating a significant gain in time.
