The problem with networking is agility — HP has the solution!

Mobility has changed the rules of the game. What's surprising is that it's not the devices (hardware) but rather how the devices are impacting the networks. Just imagine mobile devices entering and leaving the network constantly.

Cloud has also become a major factor in this dynamic scenario—since it amplifies the possibility of connecting into private or public environments. In the futrue more workloads are expected to be processed in the cloud. So the current problem with networks is their lack of flexibility and agility to support such workloads.

What if instead of having a workload mediator, the network itself took care of moving the traffic to predefined speeds? Networking depends too much on human middleware. Again, we are missing agility.

Software-defined networking (SDN) is an ideal solution to address this issue because it allows you to align apps with the network, giving you more seamless transactions. The diagram (see below) illustrates this concept better:

HP offers a complete portfolio of SDN solutions.

To learn more about HP SDN offerings, watch this video on HP Virtual Application Networks. In addition to allowing businesses to focus on connecting users to business applications and on the quality of experience HP’s SDN also provides the following:

Open ecosystem with more than 30 partners developing apps.
Soon you’ll be able to download apps through the HP SDN App Store.
HP offers Training and certifications.

Without a doubt, SDN is proof of how technology is evolving, it’s an important step toward your path to convergence. For more information please visit the official HP Software Defined Networking webpage.
