HP is changing the rules of networking by bringing next-generation technologies and proven deployment experience to customers demanding IT alignment to these new business priorities. Innovating across the infrastructure, HP will help networking break free from its historical walls, play a more integrated role, operate differently, and deliver far different economics.
Unlike other vendors, HP is the only company to offer a full portfolio of standards-based, integrated solutions and enterprise-class services developed specifically to address the complexities of the extended enterprise. HP FlexNetwork, the only converged networking architecture that spans from the virtualized data center to the virtual workplace for cloud, multimedia, and mobile services with integrated security solutions, will help customers dramatically simplify their networks, deliver business services more flexibly, and aggressively contain costs to open up new opportunities for business growth and fulfill the promise of a unified, converged IT infrastructure.
The HP FlexNetwork Architecture and its functional building blocks are a key component of the HP Converged Infrastructure. Enterprises can align their networks with their business needs–even as they change–by segmenting their networks into four interrelated modular building blocks that comprise the HP FlexNetwork Architecture: FlexFabric, FlexCampus, FlexBranch, and FlexManagement.
The HP FlexNetwork architecture delivers five primary benefits: an open and standards-based solution with scalability on three dimensions: security, agility, and consistency.
The HP FlexNetwork architecture is designed to allow IT to manage these different network segments through a single pane-of-glass management application, HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC). And because the FlexNetwork architecture is based on open standards, enterprises have the freedom to choose the best-in-class solution for their businesses.
