Cisco and NetApp Extend Their FlexPod Collaboration

Cisco and NetApp are collaborating on a series of new pre-validated design architectures that combines their computing, networking and storage solutions to help companies implement cloud automation capabilities.
The entry-level FlexPod solution are aimed at business application workloads with 500 to 1000 users. This combines the NetApp entry level FAS 2240 and the Cisco UCS C-Series Cisco Nexus 5000 Switches, Cisco Nexus 2232 Fabric Extender, and Cisco UCS 6200 Series Fabric Interconnects.

Cisco and NetApp first announced their FlexPod collaboration in November 2010. The companies now have more than 500 FlexPod partners and more than 850 customers are using FlexPod for their data center infrastructure – representing more than 400% growth in customer adoption in less than a year.
