HP Software Defined Networking (SDN) Services

Creating an agile network that can mirror the scale up/scale down capabilities of compute and store environments is nothing short of a necessity. Enablers such as software defined networking (SDN) can put customers on the path to get there.

The promise of software-defined networking (SDN) goes well beyond increased automation. Its true value is its ability to free IT to focus on the quality of business experience rather than network operations, unlocking innovation.
