FlexPod is a converged compute, networking, and storage solution developed by Cisco and NetApp. Its solution configurations and workloads are published as Cisco Validated Designs.

FlexPod components include Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) servers, NetApp unified storage systems, and Cisco Nexus networking fabric.
The FlexPod architecture can scale up or out, and can be optimized for a variety of mixed workloads in both virtualized and nonvirtualized environments.
Large enterprise data centers need agile platforms with high availability and scalable storage. Along with reducing operating costs, CIOs want to use
a converged infrastructure to support hybrid cloud computing.
Small and medium enterprises need simplified setup and use, interface to public cloud services, and greater value for their data center budgets.
An emerging enterprise trend is the need for purpose-built, high-capacity platforms for specialized workloads. Large-scale, real-time data analytics places
unique demands on compute stacks. Video surveillance, in-memory databases, and public cloud infrastructures have similar capacity profiles.

across 35 countries worldwide. Going forward, FlexPod customers and partners want configuration guidance, easy ordering, and validation for the configuration
