By HP

Growing numbers of smartphones and tablets are pushing enterprise networks to the limit and creating security and management challenges for IT organizations. IT planners must upgrade wireless network infrastructure to accommodate increased traffic demands and put systems and practices in place to efficiently onboard guest devices and users, ensure predictable and reliable services, and protect IT assets. This white paper reviews BYOD administration, performance, and security implications, and describes how by taking a holistic approach to security and management, the HP BYOD solution lets you realize all the benefits of BYOD, with confidence.

By HP

Gregory Bell, Head of Technical Services, Ballarat Grammar said “The Sentinel SDN application takes away a lot of the manual labor that we used to do. We now know exactly where the infections are and how many there are—we can detect threats and respond in a proactive manner. That saves us hours of work every week.” Ballarat Grammar is a K-12 independent Anglican school located in Victoria, Australia. An extensive parkland campus hosts a flourishing community of 250 faculty and 1,400 students, with over 200 of the students living on campus in boarding houses. Ballart Grammar looked toward HP’s SDN portfolio to increase student and faculty productivity and educational opportunities by allowing users to bring their own devices and securely connect to the network.

How To Position For The Massive IT Innovation and Business Cycle Shift Upon Corporations

Listen to the Podcast

Rob TaylorIT business leaders are faced with a great economic shift, while at the same time are afforded the opportunity of a shift in IT delivery models. Business leaders must balance maintaining their current infrastructure, while exploring these IT delivery innovations. Most importantly, IT business leaders need to use their IT budget, approximately 4% of corporate spend, to significantly enhance and reduce the other 96% of corporate spend. But it’s not just an economic calculus that is diving post great recession IT spending. IT leaders need to engineer their delivery to be flexible to support current business growth, ongoing change, and long-term business goals. Robert Taylor, VP of HP Enterprise Services joins me to discuss what he has learned from HP’s global 2000 customers as they emerge from the economic downturn and prepare for a new business cycle with IT.

Reducing network complexity, boosting performance with HP IRF technology by HP Networking

Get the White Paper

The fundamental nature of networking is changing, especially in enterprise data centers. With new, integrated applications deployed against large scale, highly virtualized server farms, server-to-server- center communications are demanding a completely new level of intra-data-center performance. Traditional three-tier networks— designed to support data-center-in/data-center-out traffic and built using legacy, poor-performing redundancy protocols—can’t deliver the server-to-server capacity required for these types of workloads.

Purpose-built HP networking solutions, system architecture, and technology are streamlining the design of next-generation data centers and campus networks to ensure the superior resiliency, performance, and agility that enterprise networks now require. One HP innovation is Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF), a technology that far outstrips ordinary protocols designed to improve the performance of network switches. In this white paper you will learn about the challenges associated with conventional switch solutions; the advantages of IRF in terms of manageability, performance, and resiliency; and the very real business benefits that can result from installing HP A-series switches that employ this technology.

HP’s Networking Vision

Saar Before HP purchased 3Com it would seldom engage in discussion about the future of networking. It was product focused. But now in an exclusive interview with Mr. Saar Gillai, Vice President of Advanced Technology Group & CTO of HP Networking, HP opens up and talks freely about industry trends it’s watching and most importantly influencing. These trends are guiding HP investment in networking with hopes of market share gain, thought leadership and increased industry influence. It’s a fascinating interview into the mind of HP Networking.

HP’s Intensified Networking & Communications Focus Explained

Listen to the Podcast

Marius HaasI interview Marius Haas, Senior Vice President and World Wide General Manager of the HP Networking Business. I asked him

• How HP will compete in the highly competitive networking market,
• What is its salient value proposition,
• Why is HP so focused on networking now, and
• Why should IT business leaders consider HP Networking.
His responses had a ring of market truth to them. As such, any IT business leader worth his/her salt needs to listen to this podcast.

Improved Network Security with IP and DNS Reputation

By HP Networking

As cyber threats across the globe continue to increase in number and sophistication, security and networking personnel must not only work harder but also smarter to stay ahead of malicious attacks. Sophisticated scanning, penetrating, and obfuscating tools and techniques are more widely available now more than ever before. Worst of all, hackers are now highly motivated to penetrate networks, applications, and databases to steal information that can quickly be sold for profit using botnets and other resources
they control.

HP FlexFabric Virtualize network connections and capacity From the edge to the core An HP Converged Infrastructure innovation primer

Get the White Paper

By HP Networking

The fundamental nature of data center computing is rapidly changing. The traditional model of separately provisioned and maintained server, storage, and network resources are constraining data center agility and pushing budget envelopes to the limit. IT organizations recognize that these static pools of isolated resources are being underutilized, a problem that can be exacerbated when dedicated infrastructure or computer systems are used to support different classes of data center workloads. One response has been for IT organizations to adopt virtualization and blade technologies, which enable a more flexible and highly utilized infrastructure. These new, more scalable technologies can be dynamically provisioned to meet continuously evolving business requirements. At the same time, these technologies apply new pressures to the multiple networks in the data center, further worsening spend issues. And it increases the burden on the IT teams that support them.

The traditional three-tier model of access, aggregation, and core switching has turned into an operational nightmare. With a variety of technologies, protocols, and management at each tier, the complexity of a legacy network can create significant management challenges for IT managers. Older-generation switches may be closed, rigid, and monolithic, incapable of the agility so vital to today’s business operations. With FlexFabric as the blueprint for an efficient, highly integrated and secure data center network, HP converged infrastructure solutions streamline the design of next-generation data centers to ensure the superior resiliency, performance, and agility that enterprise networks now require.
