Alcatel Lucent has collaborated with HP to deliver technology solutions to enterprises providing data center networking, data replication and new storage architectures connected with IP and optical backbones.
Enterprises can now provide more cost-effective, reliable services with a focus on business continuity, disaster recovery, secure data transport, data center interconnect and remote copy applications.
The new data center solutions are based on Alcatel-Lucent’s leading IP edge platform, the Alcatel-Lucent 7750 Service Router and the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) family of optical products.
According to the companies, the validated Alcatel-Lucent and HP solutions allow secure and synchronous data replication between data centers over long distances and at rates not previously achievable via standard storage fabric switching.
The solutions are available as part of the HP Complete Program in the Americas and EMEA and are pre-tested and integrated.
HP Networking has also adopted the flagship Alcatel-Lucent 7750 Service Router to expand its wide area network routers portfolio for large organizations.
This apart, Alcatel-Lucent has integrated its 1830 PSS optical platform by working with HP.
The company said the offerings also provide greater scale for large organizations, while enabling HP to deliver high quality, end-to-end network solutions.
This solution further expands the HP and Alcatel-Lucent collaboration in Data Center solutions, after the recent launch of HP Distributed Cloud Networking (DCN) platform.
DCN leverages the Virtualized Services Platform (VSP) from Alcatel-Lucent’s Nuage Networks SDN venture.
Alcatel-Lucent and HP will together support organizations and service providers in building network-enabled, distributed cloud infrastructures for the creation of new business opportunities and greater efficiencies, while improving customer service.
In February, Alcatel-Lucent tapped Global Convergence, a value added distribution and IT Services Company, to offer more options for deploying communications and networking to enterprises and channel partners.
