TORONTO, April 9, 2014 /CNW/ - Softchoice is pleased to announce it is now the first organization in North America to offer a comprehensive end-to-end approach for FlexPod implementation and management through its FlexPod Accelerator+ offering.
FlexPod is a single, scalable converged infrastructure solution built on industry leading storage, networking and computing technologies. Through FlexPod Accelerator+, Softchoice delivers value to clients through the design, deployment, implementation and ongoing management of their advanced converged infrastructure.
The FlexPod Accelerator+ experience is designed to provide clients with the simplest path to a more business-centric approach by removing the need to train, acquire and maintain new IT skills sets.
"Given the widespread popularity and success of FlexPod, we saw a need for companies to fast-track their adoption of the solution," says Aaron Brooks, Director of Innovation at Softchoice. "FlexPod Accelerator+ helps clients build a converged infrastructure that increases IT's ability to quickly scale and support the deployment of applications and data, and prepares them for a hybrid infrastructure."
The blend of architectural guidance and repeatable methodologies – based on field-proven intellectual property – results in a managed operational state through Softchoice's 24/7 Keystone Managed Services offerings. Softchoice's implementation team carries a unique hybrid-converged skillset paired with PMI-certified project managers that simplifies the solution architecture, design and deployment steps, while reducing risk and mentoring clients' internal IT teams through the journey.
"With Flexpod Accelerator+, businesses are no longer bound by internal IT skills gaps or a lack of resources," Brooks says. "In working with a managed services team, clients can rely on highly available, personalized support that doesn't always come standard in other offerings."
As a leading North American provider of technology solutions and services, Softchoice combines the efficiency and reliability of a national IT supplier with the personal touch and technical expertise of a local solutions provider. Softchoice's holistic approach to technology includes solution design, implementation, asset management and cloud services, as well as access to one of the most comprehensive and cost-effective technology distribution networks in North America. With over 1,200 employees, Softchoice manages the technology needs of thousands of corporate and public sector organizations across the United States and Canada.
