Enterprise networking vendor HP on Thursday announced the launch of the HP SDN App Store, a software-defined networking (SDN) innovation.
HP SDN App Store offers the developer community a centralized platform connecting to customers. Customers can discover, learn and purchase specific network applications and download them to their environment for testing and live deployment.
The SDN network applications market will reach $1.1 billion by 2017, said IDC.
“With the HP SDN App Store, we have completed the final piece of the SDN ecosystem by offering a robust marketplace of innovations that supports more than 5 million users and provides support to customers as they migrate to SDN,” said Antonio Neri, senior vice president and general manager, Servers and Networking, HP.
HP SDN is already gaining momentum. HP Virtual Application Networks (VAN) SDN Controller has been downloaded more than 3,000 times, and HP SDN Software Development Kit has been downloaded more than 5,000 times.
The HP SDN Application Store offers independent software vendors an easy way to bring creative solutions to market, enabling IT managers who embrace SDN architecture to solve their unique network challenges through these applications.
