ASG Gains FlexPod Premium Partner Status
We’re excited and honored to announce that we recently attained the FlexPod Premium Partner status!
The FlexPod solution utilizes the leading technologies from NetApp, VMware, and Cisco to form a prevalidated, fully tested architecture solution that allows you to move your data center to the cloud. It simultaneously supports a variety of mixed application workloads and can be optimized for virtual desktop or server infrastructures, multi-tenancy, or private/public cloud computing environments.
There’s also an entry-level FlexPod solution that uses NetApp’s FAS2000 entry-level storage systems and Cisco’s rack-mounted UCS devices. It has an iSCSI boot support and expands cloud computing options to a much wider audience.
This Premium Partner status highlights ASG’s fully developed FlexPod practice and its high level of technical expertise. There are currently only seven North American based Premium Partners, and as NetApp itself summarizes, “The requirements are designed to be particularly stringent so those who complete them can be considered truly elite.”
As a Premium Status partner, ASG can provide:
- Access to the FlexPod Solution in our in-house technology laboratory (we call it our iLab) for benchmarking and proof of concept
- Access to the FlexPod PDI (Plan, Design, Implement) Help Desk
- Access to the collaborative Professional Services Technical Consulting Accelerator (TCA)
These benefits can—along with our experience in implementing numerous FlexPod architectures—directly translate into a better customer experience. We’re looking to share more FlexPod success stories as our engineers make them happen! In the meantime, read some of our blogs on FlexPod and the benefits it has to offer. Stay tuned.
