Converged Infrastructure Increasing data center complexity and speed of business demands have led IT executives to seek complete solutions for their IT infrastructure.
Reduced risk Most Oracle databases and applications are mission-critical to an organization. Reducing risk from software changes and hardware upgrades is essential.
Rapid deployment Decreasing budgets and reduced staffing make efficient deployment of new hardware and software critical to meet the accelerating rates of business change.
Improved flexibility and scalability Rapidly growing and seasonal workloads require the ability to quickly add capacity and move resources to meet demand.
Proven and supported solution Prevalidation of complex multivendor hardware and software solutions is essential, as are formal support agreements and processes.

FlexPod essentially eliminates the need for you to spend time designing a system for your applications and then test and validate that configuration. Because it has been rigorously tested by Cisco and NetApp, FlexPod also reduces the risk of problems and failures.

Discover how easy it is to support your Oracle database or applications on FlexPod, thanks to the cooperative support arrangement between Oracle, Cisco, and NetApp. You now have a choice in engineered systems for Oracle.
