HP announced new high-performance network solutions that expand the portfolio to enable the company’s Converged Infrastructure strategy by delivering simplified server connectivity. The new offerings, which include a new Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) module for the high-performance HP A5820 data center switch (H3C S5820x), are designed to improve application availability, increase deployment flexibility and lower the overall total cost of ownership (TCO) of the network infrastructure. These additions bring enhanced server edge technology to HP’s FlexFabric high performance, flexible and secure data center networking fabric for a Converged Infrastructure.

The FCoE module for the HP A5820 data center switch efficiently connects virtual and physical servers to Ethernet and storage networks. The new solution will simplify connectivity and reduce costs where the bulk of the complexity exists – at the server edge. This approach to FCoE helps clients avoid a complete network overhaul by choosing an incremental migration path to deploy FCoE end to end. This enables clients to set the stage for future network convergence deployments while leveraging existing Fibre Channel investments.
