Part II: Virtual Application Networks
In HP Networking at Interop Spring 2012, we gave an overview of HP Networking, and some of the announcements made, and products shown at Interop Spring 2012. This is Part II
One new innovation, and one very well talked about by HP at Interop Spring, was Virtual Application Networks.
This innovation allows an enterprise to virtualize its entire network infrastructure to create a network topology that would deliver applications on-demand with device-independent provisioning.
These virtual application networks, or VANs, would be managed end-to-end with IMC, and deliver the applications across the network by utilizing the FlexNetwork architecture, and its components, FlexFabric, FlexCampus, and FlexBranch to provide orchestration, virtualization security, and management to speedily and dynamically deploy the applications to users.
The best part of this: this solution is hypervisor-agnostic.
The graphic images below tell the story.
