SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE:SNX), a leading distributor of IT products and services, has launched an optimized networking Proof of Concept Lab for resellers to demonstrate new Software Defined Network (SDN) solutions and other advanced server and storage solutions. By utilizing the lab, resellers have the opportunity to test new initiatives prior to introducing them to their customers. SYNNEX is working with key vendors including HP, whose products are being utilized as a fabric within the lab to provide reliable connectivity for underlying compute and storage infrastructure. The HP 2900 series provides robust security and management features for enterprises as well as customers building high-performance networks. The lab also demonstrates Avaya’s full communications and collaboration portfolios for unified communications, with Avaya Fabric Connect Networking coming in the fourth quarter of 2013. The SYNNEX Proof of Concept Lab currently has the capabilities to demo the following technology:
- NEC: a Programmable Flow® offering redefining cloud network virtualization with OpenFlow;
- Arista Networks: an ultra-low latency back bone utilizing Arista EOS (extensible operating system);
- SolarFlare: industry-leading 10GbE low latency and high performance adapters that utilize a cut-through architecture.
SDN has the potential to radically change the way networks are provisioned and deployed today. Benefits of SDN include reduced network management costs, improved business continuity, simplified IT management, increased application deployment and responsiveness to business demands and the ability to support a rapidly growing number of users and devices that traditional network practices cannot.For more information about the Proof of Concept Lab through SYNNEX CONVERGE Solv, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://www.synnex.com/convergesolvsecurenetworking/.
