Ready Stack: Flexibly Build Your Own Converged Infrastructure

Sometimes, the turnkey approach is the best and fastest approach to modernization. But sometimes, customers need a custom solution that they can build for themselves, or with the support of trusted partners.

That’s why we’ve created Ready Stack – a portfolio of validated designs that enable customers to build their own converged infrastructure data center solutions. It’s great news for them – and great news for you, because you can work with them to design and deploy converged infrastructure on a fast and simple sales cycle.
