PRESS RELEASE

HP-VMware networking solution

HP and VMware are collaborating on a federated network solution that will provide unified automation of, and visibility into, physical and virtual data centre networks.

The new HP-VMware networking solution will integrate the HP Virtual Application Networks SDN Controller with the VMware NSX network virtualisation platform. The HP Virtual Application Networks SDN Controller also will include support for VMware Open vSwitch Database (OVSDB) management protocol. This enables HP FlexFabric switches to participate in the automated provisioning of the virtual network, which will be delivered by VMware NSX network virtualisation platform.

The HP-VMware networking solution is expected to be available worldwide in the second half of 2014.
