HP (NYSE: HPQ) and VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW) today announced plans to collaborate to deliver the industry's first federated network solution, designed to provide customers unified automation of, and visibility into, their physical and virtual data center networks, enabling business agility and improving business continuity.(1)

As companies embrace cloud and mobility, manual network configuration has proven time and resource intensive, as well as error prone. Network virtualization offers a centralized control plane, but does not automate configuration and provisioning of physical network devices.

The new HP-VMware networking solution will federate the HP Virtual Application Networks SDN Controller with the VMware NSX(TM) network virtualization platform to provide customers with an integrated approach to automating their physical and virtual network infrastructure. The networking solution will provide a centralized view, unified automation, visibility and control of the complete data center network, improving agility, monitoring and troubleshooting.
