Overview

Enhanced Agility: With an SDN, you can quickly deploy applications with specific network requirements, and easily duplicate those settings to spin up network bubbles for new applications.

Reduced Costs: An SDN helps your enterprise make better use of equipment already on hand, providing a new software control layer on top of existing hardware. Your company becomes less dependent on one vendor’s hardware, allowing optimization of commoditized hardware. Shifting the focus to software means improved network management efficiency. Together, these factors contribute to lower operating costs.

Security: Software-defined networks provide added layers of fine-grained security in the virtual realm that hardwired networks cannot. Security and policy control are provided via a central point, assuring information is distributed securely. This level of security can also extend to virtual appliances, virtual profiles, virtual networks, virtual firewalls and more.

Intelligent Connections: Software-defined networks enable an environment to create intelligent and globally connected networks.

Automation and Cloud Enablement: Fluid automation of datacenter traffic flow throughout the network is a key advantage of SDNs. An SDN solution enables you to help span your network within your current private cloud, and offers the option of expansion into one of many hybrid cloud offerings.

HP Apollo Systems

To solve some of the world’s most challenging problems, scientists, engineers and analysts continue to push the boundaries of performance, yet at the same time, scaling today’s systems to ExaFLOPS would consume roughly the output of Hoover Dam and take up the space of 30 football fields 1. Simply put, this is unsustainable, so HP has reinvented high performance computing (HPC) to change the performance to space and power equation.
The HP Apollo Family delivers breakthroughs in rack-scale performance, power and cooling in less space to find answers faster, in a more sustainable way than ever before.
  • The air-cooled HP Apollo 6000 System optimizes rack-scale performance for your budget, and makes HPC capabilities accessible to a wide range of enterprise customers.
  • The HP Apollo 8000 System is a supercomputer that combines high levels of processing power with a groundbreaking warm water-cooled design for ultra-low energy usage and recycling.
  • Comprehensive HP Apollo Services help make HPC more accessible through financing, assessment services, deployment, integration and Datacenter Care.
