FSA One Frameworks™ by Tech Data

Tech Data’s new FSA One Frameworks™ speeds and simplifies the FlexPod® sales motion for Tech Data reseller partners, while setting the stage for new FlexPod service offerings.

The converged infrastructure stack known as FlexPod® has provided a great sales opportunity to NetApp’s and Cisco’s joint data center reseller partners, while ramping revenue for both NetApp and Cisco in the process.

Partners have used FlexPod to become more relevant to their customers, increase account control, and grow services revenue. But due to FlexPod’s extremely flexible technical and sales models, certain processes as registration, pricing, and quoting on the sales side, and sizing and configuration on the technical side, have proven confusing and/or burdensome to some partners.

Furthermore, some customers - especially in the enterprise space - while valuing the flexibility afforded by the FlexPod model, have expressed a desire to see greater structure and “productization” brought into the FlexPod space, along with certain value-added services that require a more structured platform for widespread delivery.

FSA One Frameworks addresses these concerns and requests. The solution consists of a set of pre-validated, pre-sized, fully-integrated configurations, designed to cover the majority of sizings and use cases for common customer applications.

Tech Data is the only North American distributor capable of selling and delivering these configurations as part of a high-velocity sales motion.

Please review the FSA One Frameworks Briefcase for up-to-date information.  It includes our "Overview Video"
