Why HPE FlexFabric Solutions

Legacy networks cannot meet the new demands that come from innovations such as cloud, virtualisation and rich-media solutions, leaving many datacentres at breaking point.  HPE FlexFabric is the industry’s most complete, software defined datacentre fabric.  Providing a common datacentre fabric, HPE FlexFabric delivers the simplified, scalable and automated connectivity that’s needed to support business demand for virtualised and cloud IT service delivery.

  • Simplification: Reducing network complexity by up to 75%
  • Scalability: Doubling the capacity of existing datacentre fabrics
  • Automation: Cutting network provisioning time from months to minutes.
