HPE Distributed Cloud Networking (DCN)
About HPE Distributed Cloud Networking (DCN)
HPE Distributed Cloud Networking is a complete and comprehensive networking solution that unifies Private, Public, and Hybrid clouds by virtualizing existing data centers and allowing network resources to be easily controlled with a la carte management platforms such as Openstack, Cloudstack or vCenter. Leveraging programmability of business logic and policy engine, the platform allows an open and agile solution that scales to solve the stringent needs of multi-tenant datacenters.
The solution is comprised of a network layer both physical and virtual, a control layer with federated controllers that can interconnect using MP-BGP within and across data centers, and a service directory layer with advanced programmable policies and analytics framework where IT administrators can define, visualize and control the network without being burdened by network implementation details. They can implement security, load balancing, and user access policy with a high level of abstraction, instead of manual CLI and IP address assignment. Once defined, those policies can dynamically be used to govern network behavior on an as-needed basis triggered by compute instance creation, migration and deletion. It also provides extensive service insight with an analytics engine based on Hadoop technology that collects and stores per-tenant, per-VPN, per-VM statistics.
Finally, HPE Distributed Cloud Networking provides business agility while controlling infrastructure costs. It uses embedded advanced networking features that select automatically the fastest path to optimize bandwidth utilization and latency while decreasing the bottleneck of external routers or gateways.
