New white paper available: Four Strategies for Streamlining FlexPod Design & Deployment

Deploying converged infrastructure systems is a time-consuming manual process. A new StrataCloud white paper outlines four strategies to help value-added resellers and systems integrators add efficiencies to their FlexPod design and deployment processes.

StrataCloud is uniquely positioned to offer this insight. StrataCloud last week released SDI Install, an automation tool for day zero infrastructure configuration. Through the process of building the software, the StrataCloud team has spent a lot of time thinking about how common practices for converged infrastructure (CI) design and deployment could be improved — specifically for our first supported CI system, FlexPod.
