Aruba Central

A cloud-based networking solution with AI-powered insights, workflow automation, and edge-to-cloud security that empowers IT to manage and optimize campus, branch, remote, data center, and IoT networks from one dashboard.

Manage any-sized network from the cloud

Built on a cloud-native, microservices architecture, Aruba Central is an AI-powered solution that simplifies IT operations, improves agility, and reduces costs by unifying management of all network infrastructure.

Streamline operations

Simplify how you provision, configure, and maintain networks by orchestrating all operations from a cloud-native dashboard. Aruba Central is your single point of visibility and control that spans the entire network – from branch to data center, wired and wireless LAN to WAN.

Optimize networks with AIOps

Surface and resolve issues before users ever notice them. AI-powered insights, self-healing workflows, and prescriptive optimization tips help solve problems up to 90% faster, so the network keeps business running at peak levels.

Stronger security, minus the complexity

Replace static VLANs and ACLs with intent-based policy automation and orchestration, intuitive access controls, and AI-based discovery and profiling of all connected clients. Gain the core elements of Zero Trust and SASE architectures while ensuring users have fast, secure access no matter how or where they connect.

Deploy and consume your way

Deploy Aruba Central as a SaaS application, or select from on-prem or managed service options. Choose from flexible subscription terms and options such as delayed activation and co-termination to address networking requirements within existing budgets and project timelines. 

Now a part of HPE GreenLake

Aruba Central is now an integral part of the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform, giving IT admins a single operating model for network, compute, and storage services across edges, data centers, and public clouds to improve efficiency and keep costs in check.
