I was in CiscoLive 2023 Amsterdam and I got to visit this really cool product called FlexPod. This single rack has your Compute, storage, Network(Nexus switches) and Fabric interconnects(FI). Who wouldn’t like having something like this in their datacenter. Since the day all these individual techs and boxes are available, people are looking to integrate it all together and make it easier for customers. All vendors have tried this approach of putting all in a single box and sell it as a solution, afterall we want a solution to our problems not your boxes. Cisco and NeApp has tried to customize the solution for the specific needs like they have DC solution, AI/ML focused solution , cloud focused solution etc.You can find out more on their website https://www.flexpod.com/products/
For now please enjoy these pictures.
The beast itself.
