Cisco on Cisco
A number of factors such as rapid changes in technology, explosive growth of data and uncertainty over the economic climate require IT organizations to be more agile and responsive to changing business needs. In addition, readily available external cloud services have become a catalyst that is driving IT organizations to align and mature their internal service offerings and private cloud solutions.
Cisco and NetApp’s internal IT departments are no different. We are facing the same challenges and constraints as everyone else. However, we are both global companies that rely entirely on our own products and solutions to support our business. Our joint solutions and partnership with FlexPod is helping us realize the full potential of private cloud services to accelerate innovation and drive success.
Through our NetApp-on-NetApp and Cisco-on-Cisco programs, we are sharing our FlexPod experiences, along with the challenges addressed, benefits gained and lessons learned. This is helping customers gain practical insights and strategies for maximizing the efficiency and effectiveness of IT.
Please take some time to look over these two programs to gain insight and learn more about how these programs can be a reference and springboard for relevant conversations with your customers. As always, let us know what you think in the comments section!
