Where networking and security come together – Virtual Application Networks SDN

By Mauricio Sanchez, Chief Security Architect, HP Networking


ms.jpgIt goes without saying that security is a top concern for your organization. You, our customers, are telling us that top concerns are botnets, spyware and malware.  Whether it's the resulting denial of service issues or stolen data, it's just a bad day for IT administrators all around.  Now we’ve together the top talent in Networking, TippingPoint and ArcSight to deliver a converged solution that addresses specific security pain in a completely new way by leveraging the network itself—the Sentinel Security Application, enabled through the HP Virtual Application Network Software-Defined Network (SDN) controller.


SDN: The view from HP


By Sarwar Raza, Director, Cloud Networking & SDN, Advanced Technology Group, HP Networking


sr.jpgAs HP unveils the first phase of a multi-pronged SDN product and solution strategy, I think it is prudent to take a step back and assess where we, and indeed, where the industry is heading. SDN has simultaneously fascinated, intrigued, befuddled and unnerved analysts, customers and vendors (not necessarily in that order). 


Software-Defined Networks leadership defined

By Kash Shaikh, Sr. Director of Product Marketing and Technical marketing Engineering, HP Networking


ks.jpgBefore I share the details regarding our exciting SDN announcement today at Interop 2012 New York, let me share some perspective with you. This announcement is about advancing the leadership HP Networking has in SDN space with new Virtual Application Networks innovations including SDN controller, SDN applications and new OpenFlow-enabled switches.  Here I’ll be discussing how HP continues our leadership in SDN movement.


We are the only tier-1 networking leader to delivering a complete hardware and software SDN solution across all three critical layers of SDN architecture. You can leverage this solution in your existing campus and data center environments in an incremental evolutionary manner—based on your business needs.

A brief history: OpenFlow, SDNs and Virtual Application Networks

By Steve Brar, Global Product Marketing Manager, HP Networking


sb.jpg2012 has been a busy year for networking and I can’t believe we are only 3/4s of the way through. This year, I’ve seen some technologies getting more attention, including networking for the cloud and bring your own device (BYOD). But one set of technologies in particular has picked up a lot of steam and that is Software-Defined Networking (SDN). I have been lucky enough to be a part of several major SDN-related innovations and announcements HP has introduced over the past year. I wanted to give a quick recap of those in case you haven’t been able to keep up.


Checking in on the state of Software-Defined Networking


Interop New York is just around the corner. Without a doubt, Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is going to be a hot topic. Let's take a look at where we are with SDN today and the three approaches that are surfacing. To this end, I'm kicking off a new blog series on HP Virtual Application Networking, our SDN vision.
