HP says its SDN ecosystem creates business opportunities

HP says it has unveiled what it describes as the industry’s first enterprise-class software-defined networking (SDN) open ecosystem with the HP SDN Developer Kit (SDK) and the HP SDN App Store, creating new business opportunities for partners, and providing a simple way for customers to purchase and deploy network services.
 
'One of our biggest priorities is delivering new innovations that keep pace with customer demands for new services,' said Ricardo Pedreti, data networking marketing manager for Telefonica|Vivo corporate customers. 'The simplicity and automation enabled by HP’s SDN solution, removes complexity and will allow us to accelerate the delivery of next-generation services.'
 
The HP SDN Developer Kit provides developers the essential tools to create, test and validate SDN applications, leveraging HP’s SDN infrastructure and full complement of support services. The HP SDN App Store lets customers browse, search, purchase and directly download SDN applications onto their Virtual Application Networks SDN controller, creating a new business model for how network services are purchased and implemented.
 
'With SDN the networking industry has an opportunity to disruptively innovate and is now primed for a monumental leap forward,' said Bethany Mayer, senior vice president and general manager for networking at HP. 'HP has created the industry’s most comprehensive SDN product portfolio as well as an open SDN ecosystem, which offers an environment for enterprises and partners to rapidly tune the network to their business and application needs.'
