We’re a Flexpod Premium Partner!
We strive to deliver our Flexpod solutions with industry-leading best practises and expert knowledge and we’re proud to be one of a very select few Flexpod Premium Partners in the UK.
At the heart of every Flexpod® solution is the high-performing and secure NetApp Storage. Whether you choose All-Flash or Hybrid FAS storage, you always know what you’re getting with NetApp: unrivalled agility and comprehensive business changing features.
With Flexpod®, you get to choose which type of storage best fits your business: Flash, SAS, SATA or a combination, and as one of only a select few companies in the UK able to offer Clustered Data ONTAP (C-DOT), you could be looking at a completely customisable solution that allows you to scale and upgrade easily.
Businesses grow, and with this growth comes additional demand for IT services. These services require a scalable platform that removes the need for major upgrades, which is where the Cisco Unified Computing System comes in. With streamlined plug and play capabilities, Cisco’s UCS greatly simplifies infrastructure expansion and growth whilst reducing complexity and cleaning up network connectivity.
Cisco’s Unified Fabric allows multiple computing resources to work together collaboratively, whilst providing high-performing, resilient networking technologies that arguably form the backbone of the Flexpod Platform. FlexPod utilises enterprise Cisco Nexus technologies that deliver low latency and high throughput over a single unified fabric supporting. It is this agile and flexible platform that will enable your business to easily adapt to almost any oncoming challenge.
Running multiple virtual machines from one main computer can be beneficial for a multitude of reasons, whether you need to cut back on costs, power consumption, or energy. Acting as a transferring mechanism between two layers, hypervisors can allocate storage, network capabilities and more from a main computer to multiple virtual machines.
With the development and innovation in the way we work today, workers are no longer expected to simply turn up, log in and remain at that same workstation day in, day out. The nature of work life and offices has changed, and so has the way we interact with IT.
With Desktop Virtualisation and mobility from Citrix and VMware, you can quickly and easily access your apps, data, and media from any device, regardless of location. This provides unprecedented flexibility for organisations and their employees, increasing productivity whilst reducing costs and maintaining control over data security and access.
