Following on from the success of FlexPod's integrated solution for next generation virtual Data Centers, Cisco & NetApp have extended their reach with the announcement of the low cost, easy to deploy ExpressPod. ExpressPod has been designed with price in mind for customers with a smaller data center, and a smaller budget. This infrastructure solution is based on Cisco UCS-C rack mount servers, NetApp FAS2000 series storage, VMware vSphere and Cloupia Management. It is available in two configurations: small (up to 50 virtual machines) and medium (up to 100 virtual machines). ExpressPod is available through Cisco VAD Comstor in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.
