DCNC will leverage the strength of Alcatel-Lucent’s CloudBand solution
HP and Alcatel-Lucent announced that they jointly developed a solution to help organisations move, store and access vast amounts of information by integrating data center infrastructure technology and high-performance communications networks.
The new HP and Alcatel-Lucent Data Center Network Connect (DCNC) is an integrated architecture that brings together the strengths of data centre technology with high-performance communications networks to offer enterprises the same levels of reliability, speed and capacity that are available on telecommunication service provider networks – now at substantially lower cost, it was said.
This offering builds upon HP and Alcatel-Lucent ‘s commitment to equip enterprises and service providers with the specific tools they need to deliver converged systems of IT and telecom infrastructures for greater flexibility.
DCNC will leverage the strength of Alcatel-Lucent’s recently announced CloudBand solution which accesses the power of the distributed network infrastructure to offer large enterprises and governments access to the cloud with the quality of service their activities require.
Additionally, HP is helping service providers deliver public cloud offerings to customers by also announcing HP CloudSystem integration with Alcatel-Lucent.
HP vice president and general manager technology consulting Arthur Filip said that clients were creating vast amounts of information that need to be resourced, distributed and shared without compromising the quality of data or the speed at which it’s delivered. He added, "HP and Alcatel-Lucent provide clients a way to securely share extremely high volumes of data between data center sites when and where it’s needed in an instant."
