SDN Infrastructure

Create a programmable network and align with business needs by deploying an agile, SDN-enabled infrastructure built on open standards.

SDN Infrastructure

Run Both Worlds with Hybrid SDN

Take advantage of both traditional and SDN apps by achieving the ideal balance within your infrastructure. SDN solutions from Hewlett Packard Enterprise offer gradual migration so you can move to SDN at your own pace – without a total rip and replace of your network. Welcome to better infrastructure control, greater customisation and operational efficiencies.

OpenFlow Infrastructure

OpenFlow facilitates access and communication between application, control and infrastructure layers of SDN. Now, you can simplify management and programming of network devices. Enable dynamic change in your traffic flow and create a network more responsive to business needs, from edge to core. The result is end-to-end SDN architectures ready to apply business logic and unified management to network behaviour.

VXLAN Support

HPE SDN infrastructure technology is based on open standards including Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) so you can create a logical network for your virtual machines across different networks. Design your SDN infrastructure with VXLAN for greater flexibility in managing multi-tenant workloads at scale. With no barriers to massive cloud deployments, you can move to a software-defined data centre with confidence.
