Currently, over 500 solution providers are supporting about 850 customers worldwide in deploying FlexPod solutions, Palmer said.
Advanced Systems Group has found FlexPod to be a great way to help customers move to the cloud, especially after FlexPod was recently expanded to include Microsoft Hyper-V in addition to VMware for the virtualization layer, said Mark Teter, CTO of the Denver-based solution provider.
"FlexPod is not really a product, but instead is a reference architecture for configuring solutions," Teter said. "We really want to ramp up with FlexPod to help customers transition to cloud-based infrastructures."
The addition of a FlexPod architecture based on the FAS2240 will help grow Advanced Systems Group's customer base, Teter said.
"This move expands the customer base for converged IT infrastructures," he said. "A big part of our customer base doesn't have the capacity needs of an enterprise, but still wants the benefits of a converged infrastructure."
