Create a more converged, flexible and scalable data centre network architecture.
Build an Automated, Agile Data Centre
Converge data centre assets, respond to dynamic workloads, fully exploit virtualisation and SDN technologies and provision multi-tenant cloud environments at the speed of software.
A highly scalable, flat network domain with HPE FlexFabric delivers flexible provisioning, ultra-low latency and fast workload mobility.
Infrastructure Made Simple
Flattened data centre topology makes the most of virtualised network intelligence and lets you pool, move and scale. Compute and storage resources on the fly over an integrated management layer. Design, implement and operate a converged infrastructure using our deployment-ready network fabric.
Flex into the Future
With HPE FlexFabric you’re never bound to a specific operating configuration, proprietary architecture or network fabric. Our automated, programmable data centre fabric architecture gives instant access to cloud-based apps and services so your data centre can grow and adapt to the business.

If you’re like most datacentre network engineers – I’m guessing that you very often feel like Tom Cruise in the 1986 Movie Classic - Top Gun
The emergence of maturing virtualisation solutions has opened the potential for the software-defined data centre (SDDC) – a comprehensive abstraction of a complete data centre.
- 1.Compared to legacy solutions. HPE IRF allows a 4:1 reduction (or 75% less) in design and operational complexity by allowing four core switches to be managed as one.
- 2.HPE FlexFabric design can scale up to 24,000 10 GbE ports vs. only 12,000 10 GbE ports for Cisco FabricPath.
