New H3C Modular Chassis Switch From 3Com Extends Secure Network Fabric To Core And Data Center Networks
3Com Corporation (NASDAQ: COMS) today announced the H3C® S9500E modular switch chassis, a new enterprise core switch optimized for enterprise core and medium-sized data center networks. The H3C S9500E delivers up to two times the IPv4 and up to four times the IPv6 performance of other competitive products i. It also features exceptional port density to support, simplify and secure the migration to virtualized core and data center environments. Leveraging Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF™) technology, multiple H3C S9500E switches can be linked as a single virtual switch, doubling performance and utilization, increasing capacity, while also eliminating the need for legacy resiliency protocols and their associated complexity ii.
Virtual environments must meet the same stringent network, security and compliance requirements as their physical counterparts. With the H3C S9500E customers will be able to extend 3Com’s Secure Network Fabric to their next-generation enterprise core and data center networks. Combined with the new TippingPoint network security offerings announced today, 3Com is helping organizations achieve greater business continuity by reducing network security risks across the organization while decreasing management complexity and infrastructure costs.
“The virtualization of server environments for efficiency and cost reasons makes clear demands for a change in how companies handle their networking infrastructure. 3Com's vision for the new virtualized data center, deployed with IRF technology and a security by design approach has many benefits compared to traditional approaches. The combination of 3Com’s system design with the new H3C S9500E series of modular switches and best of breed security expertise from its TippingPoint division make a compelling case for data center managers looking for next generation networking.” Steven J. Schuchart Jr, Principal Analyst for Data Center, Current Analysis
Common across the H3C data center and enterprise LAN switching portfolio, IRF technology is used to create a Resilient Virtual Switch Fabric (RVSF) that delivers greater than “five nines” availability, flexible deployment options and unprecedented levels of networking performance, ensuring business continuity and network availability. Additionally, IRF and RVSF reduce network complexity, providing complete and transparent network redundancy. These capabilities offer customers a powerful combination to address rapidly growing virtualized and dispersed application environments because they offer a simplified approach to network virtualization management that is more resilient and higher performing.
