HP’s new Virtual Connect module hastens app delivery

The introduction into the corporate network of more and more employee-purchased mobile devices as well as the increasing use of large amounts of data has the unfortunate effect of creating network bottlenecks. Hewlett-Packard Co. says its new module for BladeSystem can help alleviate this problem.

The company announced a new Virtual Connect module for BladeSystem that it says will speed up the delivery of applications and services over physical, virtual and cloud computing environments while cutting data centre total cost of ownership (TCO).

The company says that the enhancements to Virtual Connect provide enough bandwidth to simultaneously stream every movie and TV show on Netflix in HD on one 40Gb Ethernet port.

“IT departments are being increasingly pressured by the need to accommodate the mobile, BYOD workforce, the sheer number of users and by the intensive mining of huge amounts of data,” Robert Checketts, group manager, product marketing for BladeSystem products, told CDN sister publication IT World Canada. “Big apps and solutions create bottlenecks, and managers need to improve performance and simplify information delivery.”

As things stand, service delivery is restricted by available bandwidth that has to be shared across applications, storage and networking resources. In response, IT departments are increasingly adopting a converged infrastructure platform where network connections can be managed more efficiently.
