A new era of secure data center networks
Data center networks are evolving rapidly as organizations embark on digital initiatives to transform their businesses. At HPE, we know that IT managers see networking as critical to realizing the potential of the new, high-performing applications at the heart of these initiatives.
Next-generation data center fabrics
HPE’s data center networking solutions can help you compete on the same level as hyperscalers. Evolve your data center network to simplify architecture, enhance performance, and reduce costs—all with the strongest embedded security.
Take on every challenge of the modern data center
Traditional data centers were built with siloed infrastructure layers, purpose-built hardware, and fragmented management, resulting in complex deployment models and operations.
HPE’s data center solutions reduce data center complexity and accelerate automation, integration, and security with distributed services architecture design. Learn how to get both performance and Zero Trust Security—without sacrificing one for the other— with HPE Aruba Networking’s unified and automated approach to data center networking.

“With our new data center approach, we can move quickly to provision the right environment, without needing to over-invest in under-utilized infrastructure. With everything integrated and automated, you get more insight. We see data flows that just weren’t available to us previously.”
Thierry Lubbers, Network Specialist, PQR
“We’ve significantly enhanced our security posture, reduced networking and firewall complexity, and saved a third on costs compared with a similar Cisco solution. Overall, we expect a rapid 2-year ROI on a future-ready solution that will serve our needs for significantly longer than HPE Aruba’s competitors.”
