Thanks for another good ACI question! We have a recently published validated design document specifically for customers to deploy FlexPod with ACI: FlexPod Datacenter with VMware vSphere 5.1 Update 1 and Cisco Nexus 9000 Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) Design Guide. The document is available online here. An accompanying Deployment guide will be out by Oct 31. And other guides for deploying applications on top of ACI are being published, for Microsoft Sharepoint, Exchange and SQL Server. In addition, customers and deployment partners can use the tools they are familiar with for deploying FlexPod including the Guided Solution Sizing tool within the Solution Builder, and the Config Advisor for helping ensure the health, availability and optimal performance of the deployed FlexPod system.
