At Cisco Live in Las Vegas this month, HyperFlex was a hot topic among attendees.
"The HyperFlex session was one of the only sessions where I had to stand because there weren't enough seats and Cisco Live is a pretty big customer-centric event," said Robert Keblusek, chief technology officer of Downers Grove, Ill.-based Sentinel Technologies, a Cisco Gold partner ranked No. 131 on the 2016 CRN Solution Provider 500. "Hyper-converged is really, really hot and Cisco seems fully committed to HyperFlex."
In an email to CRN, Cisco said HyperFlex is now being added to Cisco's "learning curriculum," meaning there will be more technical sessions and self-paced labs around HyperFlex at future Cisco Live events.
HyperFlex is included in many of Cisco's channel incentive programs, including the Value Incentive Program (VIP) and Opportunity Incentive Program (OIP). Cisco's field sales teams are also working channel with partners to sell HyperFlex, according to Cisco.
