FlexPod Converged Infrastructure Integration
The FlexPod converged infrastructure is built using validated designs to help you build your next generation data center using a scale up/scale out architecture to deliver application performance and drive business outcomes.
Even before the original release of FlexPod, Fast Lane / Directions worked with NetApp and Cisco to create partner enablement training for the design and administration of FlexPod implementations. Not only did we create the authorized training content for FlexPod certifications, we have worked with customers to create their designs and implement FlexPod solutions around the world.
We can help you maximize the benefits of this architecture by showing your team how to deploy and manage your FlexPod systems to handle ever increasing workloads and meet your changing business demands.
Cisco UCS Director
Deploying Cisco’s UCS Director in your FlexPod environment allows you to automate, orchestrate, and manage Cisco and third-party hardware in your data center. Our research shows workloads are growing by over 25% per year but IT spending is only increasing at a rate of 3% while technical complexity and business services needs are increasing dramatically.
Fast Lane / Directions experts can work with you to increase productivity through the use of the UCS Director single operations console and the more than 2500 multivendor tasks available for creating standard integrated services across data center stacks.
