A little over a month ago, I had the pleasure of attending Cisco Live in Milan, Italy. It was a busy week doing FlexPod demos and meeting with our customers and technology partners. This provided me the opportunity to grab some video time with Michael Harding, FlexPod Marketing Manager at NetApp, to discuss our recent announcements to the FlexPod solution.


Michael and I discussed the support of important new products and technologies enabling FlexPod to meet the broadest possible range of IT needs.  One such product is the Cisco Nexus 9000, FlexPod now offers validated designs covering the breadth of Nexus Data Center Switches. In addition, FlexPod continues to receive recognition for industry leadership and innovation by winning Best of TechEd 2013 for its Microsoft Private Cloud solution and the Windows IT Pro award.

Cisco Live in San Francisco is coming up in May, so please attend and stop by the Cisco data center or NetApp booth to hear the latest on the FlexPod portfolio. I hope to see you there.
