Thanks to our HP Virtual Connect Customers! HP Virtual Connect ships 10Millionth port to customers.

Now, more than ever, IT managers are under enormous pressure to deliver applications and services which drive, innovate, and transform their business. And compounding this pressure is the increasing complexity of the job. When we first envisioned HP’s Virtual Connect technology, we were committed to radically rethink the way servers connected to networks and storage. It had to be easy to set up, easy to facilitate changes, and help drastically reduce costs. Achieving these goals means that you can now deploy and manage your blade server networking environment faster, at a lower cost, while maximizing IT staff productivity. It is with a sincere sense of gratitude that – you – our customers- have entrusted us with providing you with data center solutions and time-proven, robust, industry-leading architectures to meet these ever increasing challenges that your business is facing.

Powering thousands of customer deployments, HP is pleased to announce that another milestone has been reached with the shipment of over 10 Million Virtual Connect ports. In keeping with the successful tradition and innovation of Virtual Connect, HP also announces today the new HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric-20/40 F8 Module and the HP FlexFabric 20Gb 2-port 630 Series Adapters, the  industry's first 20Gb adapters for HP BladeSystem, to simplify data center networks further. HP Virtual Connect truly is the simplest way to connect servers to any network - a proven architecture- recognized by our customers who are voting with their dollars to implement Virtual Connect ports in their data centers. This wire-once simplicity accelerates operations and speeds delivery of applications and services running in physical, virtual, and cloud-computing environments with unprecedented ease of use. Only HP BladeSystem with Virtual Connect gives you the simplicity and freedom to build network connections optimized for your business – converging server, network and storage solutions, all managed by our awesome infrastructure manager, HP OneView. We even made the firmware update process simpler with HP Smart-Update-Manager (HP SUM).

 

This milestone is only a step along the journey. Virtual Connect continues to innovate and offer our customers flexible and energy efficient network solutions. Again, thank you for your business, and we look forward to continuing our relationship.
