NetApp FlexPod enables global storage unity for ICON



The Challenge

As ICON developed and grew on a global scale, its previous local storage solutions couldn’t keep pace. IT teams experienced outages and there was no efficient way to share data across different locations
  • Accelerate clinical trials
  • Introduce new revenue model for clinical data storage

The Solution

Implement the NetApp FlexPod architecture across ICON’s U.S. and Ireland data centers to gain a purpose-build, high-capacity platform designed for specialized workloads characterized by flexibility, scalability, and lower capital and operational costs.
