HP Maximizes Performance with Comprehensive Services for Enterprise Networks
HONG KONG, May 16, 2012 — HP today launched its Network Infrastructure Optimization Services portfolio, designed to help customers evaluate and improve their network flow and infrastructure to ensure a quality user experience.
The increasingly mobile workforce requires instant connectivity to applications and data to effectively do their jobs — regardless of their location. As a result, requests are not only coming from greater distances, but are putting higher demands on network connectivity. To meet these challenges, enterprises need to optimize network resources and reduce bottlenecks to improve the end-user experience.
The HP Network Infrastructure Optimization Services portfolio spans network topology —from within the data center and between data centers to wide area networks (WAN) and local area networks (LAN) — to identify and eliminate inefficiencies, while optimizing infrastructure to make applications run faster.
“With a dispersed workforce and growing connectivity demands, enterprises can no longer revert to traditional singular quick fixes, such as adding bandwidth, to address network issues,” said Michael Yu, director, Network Support Services, HP Asia Pacific & Japan. “HP’s new services pinpoint inefficiencies that can be removed for a greater end-user experience.”Gaining a holistic view of the network
The HP Network Infrastructure Optimization Assessment lets companies work with HP consultants who analyze traffic across network topology to identify application delays, jitter and bandwidth issues. This comprehensive assessment pinpoints inefficiencies, enabling clients to proactively address potential performance problems at the source and create a strategy for optimizing resources. In addition, HP works with clients to align business and IT needs and identify the right solution for them.Optimizing application delivery to improve end-user experience
HP, working with partner F5 Networks, is using F5’s BIG-IP platform to ensure applications run faster, and are secure and available. HP services based on F5’s BIG-IP platform include:
- HP Network Application Delivery Controller Services enable clients to optimize network traffic within the data center. After evaluating the network, HP consultants architect a solution that automatically directs incoming client requests to the most available resources in the data center. Requests are processed efficiently, applications run faster and users experience improved response time. The services also include the HP Network Application Delivery Controller Service for Microsoft® to optimize the performance of Microsoft Exchange, Lync or SharePoint 2010 and ensure the deployment adheres to Microsoft reference architecture recommendations. This prevents unnecessary technology investments that may not support future projects.
- HP Data Center to Data Center Network Optimization Service helps improve application delivery in an environment with multiple data centers. HP experts help develop a high-performance global application delivery solution. Clients can efficiently move applications between data centers and automatically direct incoming requests to the closest or most available data center based on computing requirements, location and volume spikes. As a result, application performance scales to service requests and maintains business continuity regardless of where a user or application is located.
The HP Network Infrastructure Optimization Assessment and the HP Network Application Delivery Controller Service for Microsoft are now available globally. All other services will be available globally in July 2012. Pricing varies according to location and implementation.
