Build your data center for security, isolation & visibility with HPE Hyper Converged and VMware SDN



Mohit.jpgBy guest blogger, Mohit Sur Kshirsagar, Sr. Technical Product Manager - HPE

IT administrators are well aware of the security issues associated with designing highly scalable datacenter architectures. Workloads can scale rapidly, and IT infrastructure – even virtualized infrastructures – can require reconfiguration of the physical network to keep up with increasing demand for data isolation, security and visibility.

There is a better option. Deploy a software-defined security and networking solution with VMware NSX on an HPE Hyper Converged 380 powered by Intel® platform to handle increasing data center traffic.

A simple, secure software-defined data center

Hewlett Packard Enterprise and VMware have a solution that radically simplifies and secures VM vending through HPE Hyper Converged platforms. The solution incorporates software-defined virtual networks and security services for virtualized workloads to create a multi-purpose infrastructure.

  • The HPE Hyper Converged 380 provides a bigstock-Technology--120005471.jpgsimplified and highly scalable and infrastructure for virtualized workloads. The hyperconverged platform lets you provision resources required to deploy applications and services quickly and reduce provisioning time from days to mere seconds.
  • With VMware NSX, you already have the physical network infrastructure you need to deliver this extremely simple software-defined data center. NSX lets you dynamically create and manage virtual networks independent of underlying physical network topology.

The combined solution makes it simpler to manage virtualized IT environments and delivers secure software-defined network capabilities such as micro-segmentation, firewall and application high availability delivered at the VM level.

A new reference configuration whitepaper provides technical details and best practices for the simple SDDC solution described above:
