  • FlexPod is Winning through Innovation with new FlexPod validated designs and program enhancements.This presentation’stheme calls out how FlexPod has evolved from a platform that cuts cost, to one that enables the cutting-edge. We are featuring industry-first validated designs for Cisco Nexus 9000 ACI-enabled switches, FAS8000 unified scale-out storage, as well as immediate support for the new FAS2500 series.
  • Examples Industry momentum.Depending on the analyst, anywhere from a third to two-thirds of IT will be shifting to Converged Infrastructure (CI).Customers and Resellers are using CI to reduce Deployment time, reduce cost and reduce IT project risk.
  • And within this hot market, FlexPod itself is seeing strong momentum:Shared Cisco and NetApp results consistently in industry top tier.4,000 customers growing almost 100% annually 1,000 resellers globally, 100 Premium partners.70 published validationsAnd from a recentIDC IT user-survey, “FlexPod and FlexPod Express clearly ranked first in a field of 17 suppliers.” Details in next slide.Other key proof points:37% lower TCO vs. VSPEX (Edison Group)120% ROI and 9 month payback (Forrester)“Ideal platform forprivate cloud” (ESG)Award winning designs - Microsoft best of TechEd, Windows IT Pro50% guaranteed storage savings (NetApp)
  • FlexPod’s success in the market is not just a reflection of one quarter’s sales. FlexPod was ranked the #1 product in a set of 17 choices, by over 300 IT managers and Execs.FlexPod leads in terms of buyer interest, with almost 45% of companies in this IDC survey evaluating, testing or feeling they already Own a FlexPod.Note that 22% or over 1 in 5 of companies looking at Converged Infrastructure have already chosen FlexPod!
  • With this latest announcement, the FlexPod value proposition has evolved from just being a better alternative to DIY IT, to the leader in integrated infrastructure per IDC and other analysts, to now being a platform for innovative new IT capabilities. From Cost Savings to Converged to Cutting Edge.40% of respondents in aForrester study on CI said IT workers were able to shift their focus from maintenance to new initiatives once a CI solution was implemented. In addition, 73% of respondents reported that implementation of CI resulted in improved IT responsiveness to new business requirements. FlexPod is enabling innovation through new validated designs…Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure, along with all Software-Defined Data center innovations, enabling full virtualization, automation, and where hardware state is maintained by intelligent software systems.Designs with the NetApp FAS8000 bring the unique benefits of Unified Scale-out storage. The new FAS8000 is flash accelerated and cluster enabled for new levels of performance and scale, in a single storage system.FlexPod as a platform for Cisco Secure Enclaves enables Security innovations vital in an era of cyberfraud and terrorism. We support the state-of-the-art in data partitioning, logical VM isolation, along with network monitoring and Adaptive Security applications.VDI leader Citrix XenDesktop securely delivers any type of virtual desktop, Windows, web, or software as a service app to all the latest PCs, Mac computers, tablets, smartphones, laptops, and thin clients making possible unprecedented mobility for the workforce. Tech partner NVIDEA enablesvisually rich, interactive applications through the industry's first hardware virtual GraphicsProcessing Unit – enabling for the first time CAD/CAM type processor-intensive app to be used by globally distributed design teams.Companies have virtualized but may still lack the agility to run their datacenters. Microsoft private cloud dramatically changes the way IT delivers, and users and consume IT services. An automated layer of abstraction over pooled resources delivers agility, economics, and becomes a platform for transformative IT projects.
