VSPEX sizing made easy!
One of the biggest challenges our partners face today is sizing. To help partners quickly and easily size for a VSPEX configuration in your customer's application environment you can now leverage the VSPEX Sizing Tool. The tool enables you to have a conversation with your customer and then take the information from that initial conversation and enter the data into the tool. Once all the data is entered and the appropriate forecast (1 -3 years of growth selected) the tool will provide a recommended VSPEX configuration to support the customers unique environment. The tool will size for Microsoft Exchange, Sql Server, SharePoint, Lync Server (VSPEX Microsoft Collaboration Suite) Oracle and a custom application on VSPEX Private Cloud. The tool will also enable partners to quickly and efficiently size VSPEX End User Computing Solutions and provides the sizing results in a comprehensive customer facing Microsoft PowerPoint file.
