Cisco and NetApp at VeeamON 2014
Cisco and NetApp are sharing a booth a VeeamON to demonstrate our collaborative product FlexPod, an integrated computing, networking, and storage solution with configurations and workloads that are published as Cisco Validated Designs. FlexPod components are comprised of Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) servers, Cisco Nexus switches, and NetApp unified storage systems. Additionally, FlexPod's architecture can scale up or out and can be optimized for a wide range of mixed workloads in both virtualized and nonvirtualized environments.
FlexPod is designed to satisfy emerging client needs:
- FlexPod Data Center was developed for large enterprises.
- FlexPod Express serves small and medium-sized enterprises.
- FlexPod Select focuses on high capacity and performance for specialized workloads.
Cisco and NetApp support FlexPod deployments through the Cooperative Support Model.
