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.
