HP and Alcatel-Lucent announced a jointly developed solution to help organizations move, store and access vast amounts of information by integrating data center infrastructure technology and high-performance communications networks.
The new HP and Alcatel-Lucent Data Center Network Connect (DCNC) is an integrated architecture that brings together the strengths of data center technology with high-performance communications networks to offer enterprises the same levels of reliability, speed and capacity that are available on telecommunication service provider networks – now at substantially lower cost.
This offering builds upon HP and Alcatel-Lucent’s commitment to equip enterprises and service providers with the specific tools they need to deliver converged systems of IT and telecom infrastructures for greater flexibility. DCNC is the latest example of that promise, assisting enterprises in creating efficiencies within their data centers and networks for greater agility. In addition, HP is helping service providers deliver public cloud offerings to customers by also announcing HP CloudSystem integration with Alcatel-Lucent.
“Clients are creating vast amounts of information that needs to be resourced, distributed and shared without compromising the quality of data or the speed at which it’s delivered,” said Arthur Filip, vice president and general manager, technology consulting at HP. “HP and Alcatel-Lucent provide clients a way to securely share extremely high volumes of data between data center sites when and where it’s needed in an instant.”
DCNC will leverage the strength of Alcatel-Lucent’s recently announced CloudBand solution which accesses the power of the distributed network infrastructure to offer large enterprises and governments access to the cloud with the quality of service their activities require.
