FlexPod® is the proven converged solution platform for customers worldwide to run their businesses. NetApp and Cisco continue to accelerate FlexPod innovations with new technologies to deliver enhanced performance, capacity, and flexibility. Innovations that help customers optimize their IT infrastructure, power enterprise application and modern workloads, and simplify operations across on-premises and hybrid cloud environments.

In January, FlexPod welcomed the new Cisco UCS X-Series and C-Series M7 servers. Customers can easily upgrade their existing FlexPod units to harness the improved performance and efficiency of UCS M7 servers to meet the demand of the increasingly dynamic workloads. With Cisco Intersight, support for UCS M7 servers is fully integrated into FlexPod management operations and policies.

New ONTAP storage solutions

Now, FlexPod is raising the bar again with the new NetApp® AFF C-Series and AFF A150 storage systems. These new storage solutions are powered by the industry-leading NetApp ONTAP® software, and they enjoy the same advanced data management services and native hybrid cloud connectivity as existing AFF and FAS storage solutions.
