HCN FOR ENTERPRISE CLOUDS
Any Workload. Anywhere. Anytime.
BRING THE CLOUD TO YOUR ENTERPRISE
Be quick. Be nimble. Be seamless.
Remember what you love about the cloud. The freedom to get what you need, when you need it. No waiting. Full control and flexibility to support your application and business requirements at a moment’s notice. Today, you need all of that (plus some) in your enterprise to stay competitive and increase efficiencies. The network is the glue that holds that cloud together and you need to reflect that in your enterprise’s data center. A poorly designed network using outdated paradigms and routing protocols will cause wasted resources and missed opportunities. Your data center will be grounded. Plexxi HCN eradicates artificial network boundaries to ensure that new applications can be deployed in and across your cloud.
DON’T LET THE NETWORK STOP YOU
BE AGILE. BE QUICK. BE SEAMLESS.
The enterprise cloud takes a different IT approach to meeting the needs of the business. You need to look at applications and data requirements from the perspective of business goals not static technology silos (servers, storage arrays or switches). You want a flexible set of tools that enable a building-block approach. You want Plexxi HCN.
