NetApp FlexPod enables global storage unity for ICON



The Challenge

As ICON plc developed and grew on a global scale its previous local storage solutions couldn’t keep pace. For example, it wasn’t unusual for IT teams in different locations to experience outages and it was often difficult to efficiently share data across different locations.

The Solution

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


  • Reduced operational and capital costs

  • Greater efficiencies

  • Easy management

  • Scalability to support business growth

  • Simplified support processes
