Stability and Resilience for IT and Data Center Management

Review from a FlexPod Customer

One of the most consequential IT projects you can undertake today is to digitally transform your approach to data center management. But a digital transformation can be tricky to pull off. Not only do you need to know where your current approach falls short, you also have to understand what it takes to adopt a better one.

So how do you do it? By starting out with a bit of unbiased feedback from your peers. That’s why we launched this new blog series highlighting reviews by verified customers of ours on IT Central Station.

This time, we discuss how the FlexPod® data center solution from NetApp and Cisco helped a customer working for the federal government bring stability and resilience improvements to their IT environment.
