HP talks new networking portfolio

21 Apr 10

Following the acquisition of 3Com, HP unveils a "superior alternative to the marketplace in terms of technology, energy efficiency and total cost of ownership".

HP completed its buyout of 3Com last week and says that its new HP Networking portfolio combines the best of HP ProCurve and 3Com to provide an advanced network fabric that is up to twice as fast with half the energy use, and at a 65%. Its newest internal datacentre will run completely on HP networking products.

HP Networking will be led by Marius Haas, Senior VP and General Manager, and is part of the Enterprise Servers, Storage and Networking business unit led by David Donatelli, Executive Vice President and General Manager.

The portfolio is billed as a cornerstone of the HP Converged Infrastructure strategy.

“Clients need a reduction in complexity, more efficiency and greater flexibility in their networking solutions,” said Haas. “HP’s integrated networking portfolio challenges the status quo with more innovative technology that enables convergence across servers, storage and networking, at better economics to help clients deliver the outcomes that matter most to them.”
