Intelligent data center switching

Evolve your data center network to simplify architecture, enhance performance, and reduce costs—all with the strongest embedded security.

GigaOm named HPE Aruba Networking a 2024 Data Center Switching Leader.

The shift to distributed centers of data means challenges

Traditional data centers were built with siloed infrastructure layers, purpose-built hardware, and fragmented management, resulting in complex deployment models and operations.

Operational complexity

Most organizations have disparate network architectures and management tools with multiple switching hardware platforms, operating systems, and licensing or subscription plans.

Slow service delivery/SLAs

This operational friction leads to longer lead times because IT spends countless hours on infrastructure requests and manual tasks, while stakeholders demand a faster cloud-like experience.

Difficulty troubleshooting

In the data center, lack of visibility across both the physical and virtual networks means that IT spends about 70% of their time trying to identify and diagnose issues.

Simplify ITOps, speed up provisioning, and save time

Learn how to reduce data center complexity and accelerate automation, integration, and security with distributed services architecture design.

Simplify and automate IT operations

Simplify and automate IT operations

Built on a microservices based architecture with identical operation for all switches, whether deployed in a data center or campus environment. HPE Aruba Networking is unique because our common architecture delivers a consistent and cloud-like operational experience across every domain of the enterprise network.
