In annual planning, ideas for the coming year are presented, rejected or accepted, and then prioritized. During these conversations, stakeholders consider a multitude of factors, including alignment to company goals and ROI, and it’s crucial to ensure that your proposals hit the mark. FlexPod® XCS is here to change the narrative and help with those difficult conversations, so you can gain access to capabilities that increase operational efficiencies and reduce costs, just like your manager requested:

  • Automation gives time back to administrators to prioritize critical tasks.
  • Full-stack visibility offers comprehensive insight and proactive alerts to prevent miscues.
  • Simplified hybrid cloud connectivity positions your business to serve your clients better.

FlexPod as a Service

Additionally, FlexPod now offers FlexPod as a Service to provide financial options. FlexPod users can align their infrastructure costs to usage and prevent oversized capital expenditure outlays. This additional funding gives organizations the opportunity to take on multiple capital-intensive priorities, rather than having to choose just one. FlexPod as a Service grows with your organization to meet your requirements for more capacity and improved performance.
