Five years of FlexPod later - can Cisco and NetApp be proud?

“Competition for customers is fierce."

Cisco and NetApp have marked five years of FlexPod, reporting that the integrated infrastructure solutions has generated shared reviews of $US5.6 billion.

Today, more than 6,300 customer organisations and 1100 partners worldwide have experienced FlexPod, which was launched to the market in 2010.

“Competition for customers is fierce,” says George Kurian, CEO, NetApp.

“Requirements for responsiveness, availability and speed have never been higher.

“In FlexPod, Cisco and NetApp have created the ideal solution to meet these evolving business demands.

“The capabilities of Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite and NetApp Data Fabric enable customers to seamlessly extend their IT systems from the private cloud to the public cloud, on their terms.

“Customers can be confident that their investments in FlexPod today will enable their businesses to succeed and evolve with the changing business and IT landscape.”

Kurian says the NetApp and Cisco FlexPod collaboration has helped “simplify and modernise” enterprise IT, allowing customers and partners to choose from more than 100 validated application and infrastructure designs.

“Cisco and NetApp share the same vision to empower every country, city and company to become digital,” adds Chuck Robbins, CEO, Cisco.

“To do this, IT organisations need a simpler approach to deploy and manage infrastructure.

“Together, FlexPod and Cisco's partner network improve deployment time and prepare customers for the next wave of data centre transformation.”

Backed by one of the most successful alliances in the industry, Robbins believes FlexPod has quickly become the integrated infrastructure of choice for many of the largest enterprises around the globe.
