HP, VMware Report Deal to Provide Federated Software-Defined Networking, Virtualization Solutions
(Benzinga Lightning Feed Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) HP (NYSE: HPQ) and
VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW) today announced plans to collaborate to deliver the
industry's first federated network solution, designed to provide
customers unified automation of, and visibility into, their physical
and virtual data center networks, enabling business agility and
improving business continuity.(1)
As companies embrace cloud and mobility, manual network configuration
has proven time and resource intensive, as well as error prone.
Network virtualization offers a centralized control plane, but does
not automate configuration and provisioning of physical network
The new HP-VMware networking solution will federate the HP Virtual
Application Networks SDN Controller with the VMware NSX(TM) network
virtualization platform to provide customers with an integrated
approach to automating their physical and virtual network
infrastructure. The networking solution will provide a centralized
view, unified automation, visibility and control of the complete data
center network, improving agility, monitoring and troubleshooting.
