Automated. Aware. Agile.
Your legacy network was not designed to handle big data, scale-out applications or hyperconvergence. HPE Composable Fabric delivers a software-defined networking fabric purpose-built for workload-driven performance and scale.
Agility and scale
Friction-free scale supercharges your DevOps velocity and application time-to-market by pooling and provisioning resources in real-time. Incrementally scale your infrastructure between servers, racks and across data centres.
Adaptability and performance
Serve your applications better with the isolation of critical workloads to ensure exclusive path access. In addition, the fabric discovers and auto-configures server nodes, automates affinities and directs workload behavior based on desired intent and business needs.
Visibility and control
Empower the admin to manage, provision and implement traffic from a single portal. The fabric is integrated with applications at the API level, enabling quick and clear troubleshooting with an end-to-end view of the infrastructure.
Frequently asked questions
HPE acquired Plexxi for its award-winning1 software-defined data fabric networking technology. With the acquisition, HPE can now provide customers with an intelligent composable fabric networking technology that increases automation, optimises application delivery, and takes full advantage of hyperconverged and cloud-scale infrastructures.
HPE is currently the only vendor offering HCI with intelligent networking in the same solution stack.
On the contrary, NSX is complementary to HPE Composable Fabric technology. NSX is an overlay to a physical network. HPE composable fabric delivers control of both the physical network and the SDN.
The networking component of your composable fabric solution shouldn’t be an afterthought, but a pre-integrated, pre-tested component of a complete HCI stack. True hyperconvergence includes compute, storage AND networking – all managed from a single, familiar vSphere management console.
HPE hybrid cloud platform advances composability across the data centre with an open integrated software stack that enables businesses with the speed, scale and economics of public cloud providers.
