A cool new free app that I’ve been beta-testing for a few weeks has been released on the iOS App Store. FlexPod Tech Specs by Vallard Benincosa is a universal app that works on both the iPhone and iPad. The app contains technical specifications for the various components of a FlexPod – Cisco UCS blade systems, Cisco fabric extenders and switches, and NetApp filers.
In addition to providing tech specs for FlexPod components, the app also contains links to validated workloads – including XenDesktop on XenServer, Sharepoint on VMware, and more. The app provides links to Visio templates for each FlexPod component, social media links, and several resources for channel partners.
I’ve found the app to be quite useful, allowing me to quickly refer to details about a particular UCS blade or NetApp filer.
Below are a couple of screenshots of FlexPod Tech Specs running on my iPad.
