HP and VMware also announced sales, support and go-to-market agreement for the VMware NSX network virtualization platform to help customers accelerate the deployment of new high-performing applications.

In addition, HP’s hardware L2 Gateway solution, based on HP FlexFabric 5930 switch OVSDB and VMware NSX integration, as well as the industry’s first jointly developed federated HP software-defined networking and VMware NSX network virtualization solution enabling seamless integration of physical and virtual data center infrastructure, will attain VMware certification.

“Software-defined data center enables companies to evolve beyond hardware-centric architectures to create an automated, easy to manage hybrid cloud platform that can meet the demands of both traditional and emerging cloud-native applications,” said Carl Eschenbach, president and chief operating officer, VMware.

HP is introducing more flexibility and choices of end-user computing solutions with VMware Horizon 6.1 and NVIDIA GRID to deliver highest density graphics virtualization options in the industry.

Powered by HP OneView, the new system gives a single management interface. Optimized for VDI use cases, these solutions provide variable, full lifecycle support options and open interoperability with third party top-of-rack networking switches and hypervisors from leading vendors.

These end-user computing solutions can support up to 3,500 users and are fully tested to run desktop virtualization applications at optimal performance, helping customers reduce provisioning time, cost, setup and installation errors.
