Introducing HP FlexFabric

With HP FlexFabric, you can provision your network resources efficiently and securely to accelerate deployment of virtualised workloads. FlexFabric network designs are simpler, flatter, and easier to manage and grow over time. This open architecture uses industry standards to simplify server and storage network connections while providing seamless interoperability with existing core data centre networks.


To cut complexity further, you can combine it with HP BladeSystem c7000 featuring HP ProLiant BL460c G7 servers powered by Intel® Xeon® Processor 5600 series. By doing so, you can make changes in minutes rather than days, with just a single wiring.


HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric can deliver up to:

  • 95% less network sprawl at the server edge ¹
  • 65% cost savings on equipment ¹
  • 40% lower power and cooling costs ¹


HP Virtual Connect Technology

Built for the demands of Converged Infrastructure, the HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric Module provides server administrators with the simplest, most flexible way to connect servers and virtual machines to any LAN or SAN – with no extra mezzanine cards or confusing software licenses to buy.

  • Terms and Conditions
  • 165% Substantiation – Based on the difference (ILP as of May 2010) of traditional interconnect and adapter cost compared to Virtual Connect FlexFabric solution. Compare cost of 6 Ethernet switches, 16 quad-port NICs, 2 Multi-layer fabric switches and 16 HBAs to 2 HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric.
  • 140% Substantiation – Based on the difference of traditional interconnect and adapter power costs compared to Virtual Connect FlexFabric solution. Compare cost of power for 6 Ethernet switches, 16 Dual-port NICs, 16 quad-port NICs, 2 8Gb storage switches and 16 HBAs to 2 HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric modules connected to 16 embedded FlexFabric adapters.
  • 195% Substantiation – To support a Vmware recommended configuration of 6 NICs and 2 Fibre Channel connections, for 16 servers, a traditional server blade configuration would require a dual port LAN on Motherboard (LOM) NIC, an extra quad port NIC mezzanine, and a dual port Fibre Channel host bus adapter (HBA) along with 8 switches (6 Ethernet and 2 Fibre Channel). The total traditional configuration components come up to 40 vs. the VC FlexFabric solution. The VC FlexFabric solution requires only embedded dual port FlexFabric adapters on servers (no extra mezzanine cards) and two VC FlexFabric modules. This simple calculation will help you understand it better, (40-2)/40=95%.
