Some of the features that really caught my eye are:
- Vendor-Agnostic – This is what I consider to be the most important feature of Virtual Connect technology. Here is one technology solution that allows you to uplink to Cisco, Brocade, HP, Juniper, Force10, QLogic…you name it!
- Cost-Efficient – When HP Virtual Connect technology is used with a FlexFabric Converged Infrastructure architecture, it is proven to be the most cost-effective solution in the industry for servers needing 4 or more NIC’s in combination with 1 or more HBA.
- Simple – Since HP Virtual Connect technology connects server blades to LAN's and SAN's through a virtualization layer between the edge of the server and the edge of the network, it allows you to consolidate individual networking components by up to a deeply impressive 95%.
- Change-Ready – Again, taking advantage of the converged infrastructure architecture provided by HP FlexFabric, HP Virtual Connect technology allows your data center to add, replace, and recover server blades on a moment’s notice.
