I’m excited about the launch of FlexPod® for Healthcare at Cisco Live 2018 US in Orlando next week. Come see us at the NetApp Booth #2005 to learn all about this new offering.


NetApp is one of the few data management companies with a dedicated healthcare solutions team.  We’re uniquely positioned to assist healthcare organizations by providing secure access to critical information, so customers can quickly accelerate workloads and analytics and can integrate cloud data services with industry-leading simplicity and efficiency. We have more than 4,500 healthcare customers.


FlexPod is a highly successful platform to help break down silos of infrastructures, a common problem for many healthcare providers. FlexPod capabilities, including unified protocol, simplified management, and integrated data protection, are already benefiting many of our healthcare customers.  FlexPod simplifies healthcare IT and provides a scalable, flexible foundation for secure patient data. With FlexPod, you can focus on innovative ways to drive prevention and wellness and improve individual patient outcomes. FlexPod delivers nondisruptive operations, seamless scalability, and proven efficiency.


What’s different about this launch?


NetApp and Cisco have joined hands to expand the FlexPod solutions into the healthcare applications space. Customers can now confidently deploy complex healthcare applications such as Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) with deployment best practices and infrastructure sizing guidance developed by the FlexPod team. Incremental use cases are identified and guidance is provided based on the customer’s needs. The first solution being made available with this new initiative is the deployment best practices guide for Epic EHR.  More healthcare solutions to be introduced throughout the coming year will reduce the customer’s risk in deploying these applications and accelerate their digital transformation strategies.
