Arizona Department of Economic Security: Helping Arizonans Save State Dollars With Cisco UCS, VMware, and NetApp
The AriZona Department of Economic Security (AZDES) needs to enhance services and implement DR while shrinking IT infrastructure footprint and costs. AZDES selected a FlexPod solution from Cisco and NetApp based on functionality, the ability to scale non-disruptively, technology integration, and proven interoperability for the shared IT infrastructure. The AZDES private cloud delivers IT services to more than 10,000 AZDES staff and consultants with performance, flexibility, and scalability. The results were building Web servers in 5 minutes versus 3 months, implementing pay-for-use model and avoid steep upfront costs, instantly expand/contract resources to match demand and deliver enhanced services with 4 fewer FTEs.
