  • This is the FlexPod reference BoM. We have chosen FAS3210A and matched it to appropriate compute to support 1,500 users for these four popular workloads simultaneously: virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, and SQL Server—and it provides sufficient headroom for additional applications.The storage array can be substituted with larger (or smaller) systems, likewise the blades configuration can be tuned to specific workload requirements, but the FlexPod retains its integrity and single architecture.Scale up by either using a standard FlexPod each time or by scaling individual resources. However, regardless of the number of FlexPods or the capacity in each layer of the infrastructure, it’s always managed as pooled resources, not individual FlexPods.Value Proposition Low Risk – Proven and Detailed Deployment Guides, for a wide range of applications Efficiency – Highest possible efficiency Flexible – Scale Up/Scale Out
