"Delivering the services - of information - available anywhere, anytime through our Instant-On Enterprise requires a converged infrastructure with the ability to take hardware and applications under one umbrella, which is virtualised and managed effectively," said Mitra. "This includes the management of data centre facilities as well as the control of power and cooling services through HP SmartGrid software."
"This is a flattened architecture - two-tier rather than three-tier," he said. "With open standards that offer lower TCO, while reducing complexity by adding intelligence into the networkm which means that the network follows you."
HP Networking Asia Pacific & Japan Category Manager Justin Chiah said new products included green features in hardware and software. "These offer industry standard energy efficiency internet (IEEE) of 45 per cent power consumption savings, and improved performance of modules by up to 39 per cent, with up to 40 per cent energy savings."
Chiah said HP's acquisition of Tipping Point recently allowed the company to include automated scalable threat protection. "The attack surface has increased, across operating systems, applications and the Web. IPS (intrusion protection solution) is a dedicated network security device providing in-line inspection of traffic and the latest signature database that uncovers 2.3 times more vulnerabilities than competing systems, according to a Frost & Sullivan study."
