Solution Provider Says Increased Performance, Decreased Energy Costs Top the List
NEW YORK, May 2, 2017 – As enterprise organizations work to become the nimble, agile, adaptable workplaces of the future, CIOs and their IT teams are expected to provide a new kind of user experience that delivers increasingly better performance at a reduced cost. This is one of the reasons for IT experts’ early excitement about FlexPod, a long-term data center solution built on a flexible, shared infrastructure that can scale easily and can be used for a variety of mixed application workloads or configured for virtual desktop, server, or secure multi-tenancy cloud environments. While FlexPod delivered much of what IT pros needed as they began their digital transformation journeys, today’s technology takes it even further. That’s why Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), suggests that CIOs employing FlexPod solutions consider a refresh to capitalize on the increased performance and decreased energy footprint FlexPod’s move to an all-flash array can provide.
“Beyond faster processors and bigger servers, FlexPod’s new all-flash array can deliver significantly reduced response times and faster application deployment,” says Brad Bailie, Senior Solutions Architect, Logicalis US. “So, while it’s a good idea to assess the health of your FlexPod environment at least every third year of your maintenance contract, the addition of flash today can deliver a new kind of performance and agility previously unheard of, while simultaneously simplifying management and cost.”
Logicalis’ Bailie says it’s important to remember that a FlexPod refresh isn’t an all-or-nothing proposition: “For current FlexPod users, everything you have already bought is still valid, but you can add these new capabilities to dramatically increase your performance and decrease your costs.”
