Capacity planning for a network is challenging as your organization grows and your functional needs evolve. Deploying scalable network technologies and platforms from HP Networking empowers you to build flatter and more efficient data center networks to address escalating performance, scalability, security, and management demands.
With HP Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF), HP’s switch platform virtualization technology you can dramatically simplify the design and operations of your data center and campus Ethernet networks. IRF overcomes limitations of legacy spanning tree designs by providing rapid failover for delay-sensitive, mission-critical applications and improving network utilization and performance in the network core.
IRF consolidates management of many devices into a single, easy-to-manage, virtual switch. By deploying IRF in conjunction with highly-scalable 12500 switches in the core and 5830 GbE and 5820 10 GbE series switches in the access layer, you can eliminate the requirement for a dedicated aggregation layer as you scale-out data centers and enjoy the benefits of large Layer 2 domains with increased network uptime and simplified management.
Your network needs to keep pace with the demands of virtualization, increased traffic, the shift towards mobile access, and a growing wave of video content. Capacity plans offer a defined path to the future.
