FlexPod with UCS Mini
An increasing amount of computing is being done outside the data center at the edge. FlexPod with UCS Mini is a simple, easy to manage, and expandable solution that brings the performance and power of Cisco UCS integration in an all-in-one, small footprint optimized for non-datacenter environments, such as remote sites, branch offices, and any location where data is generated and compute resources are needed. The UCS Management portfolio enables remote operation, automation and policy enforcement across massive multi-site footprints, enabling customers who have invested in FlexPod in their core data centers to leverage that investment at their smaller remote and branch offices.
We are looking forward to an exciting 2015 with FlexPod. These new solutions and technologies will enable FlexPod to meet a wide range of IT needs and run the most business-critical applications whether they are located in the data center or at the edge.
