Our relationship with Cisco goes back more than a decade. We offer United Computing Services (UCS) and FlexPod appliances (a joint offering with NetApp).
FlexPod is a pre-integrated system with a converged infrastructure hardware stack. It includes compute, network and storage resources, plus management software with automation capabilities.
Leading analyst, Forrester Research, calls this system the “fast-track” to a private cloud.
FlexPod is ideal for customers focusing on the organisational changes needed when adopting a cloud architecture. They are also ideal for organisations that want a simple, out-of-the-box platform. It can either sits on their own premises or be hosted by an MSP.
We continue to maintain our certifications as Cisco Certified Network Professionals (CCNP) for UCS.
