  • Organizations are facing increased pressure to realize operational efficiencies end-to-end, from the data center to branch offices, to optimize customer service, productivity, and positively impact business outcomes. To stay competitive and enhance customer service, businesses want services delivered where their customers are, e.g., to support local populations at county health offices in remote locations or local collection and distribution centers set up by transportation companies, or to tap talent pools via R&D centers in India.Companies face challenges in delivering effective and efficient services to their remote branch users. A sales person needs fast and reliable access to corporate systems when a customer is ready to place an orders. A retailer outlet needs fast and reliable access to a credit card network to process a transaction—no one enjoys the long check-out lines that can often be an unpleasant part of holiday shopping. In addition, businesses want to deploy in their branch offices productivity-enhancing solutions such as UC&C applications, including instant messenger or SharePoint portals to improve collaboration.To help IT staff deliver cost-effective, efficient services, enterprises are shifting from an operational model that uses dedicated application servers running in branch offices to a centralized model that encompasses predicable application delivery along with ease of management and comprehensive security. Compliance with corporate governance mandates, the elimination of remote IT staff, and overall cost-efficiencies are key drivers in this shift.IT staff must deliver new functionality to branch offices seamlessly without sacrificing the performance and availability of business and productivity applications. Adequate security and governance policies must also be assured. Yet there are challenges to achieving these goals. Organizational structures and lines of reporting make it harder to enforce IT policies. The physical separation of a branch from a main office may impact sharing resources, data closets may be shared by more than a single business within a building, physical security may be lax, and local access to the Internet may open a network to a new set of security vulnerabilities.With minimal IT or no IT support in the branches, reliance on remote management tools, integrated solutions, and service migration from branch to corporate data centers become critical.Only 36% of sites have any IT staff on site at all, on average (Nemertes report)Transition: Customers are seeking solutions for creating secure, reliable, and fast delivery of applications to their branch offices. your branch users demand the same quality of service, productivity, and access to services as headquarter. You can empower them by securre network, faster response, reliable connectivity, and centralized management.Provide: same access, same availability, same application delivery if every office is your main office
  • Agility: The HP Advanced Services zl Module with VMware vSphere platform is architected to meet the application demands of today’s branch office with design flexibility for future applications. The modular architecture, combined with virtualization enablement, is designed to support increasing bandwidth requirement and services expansion as business grows.Lower TCO: This solution converges network connectivity and network applications within a single network to help enterprises decrease the number of disparate devices in the branch, thus reducing the IT branch footprint with less network complexity and space requirements. The HP Advanced Services zl Module with VMware vSphere is designed for the HP 5400 and 8200 zl Switches. These switches are highly energy-efficient and offer up to 45 percent energy cost savings according to Miercom (www.miercom.com), an independent test lab.Simplicity: By fitting in the chassis of an HP 5400 or 8200 zl Switch Series, the HP Advanced Services zl Module with VMware vSphere enables easy deployment and management. No need to wait or schedule an IT site visit:• The services module is easily installed into an available slot on the switch chassis• Direct connection between the module and the chassis eliminates new cabling, routing of cables, or power provisioning• Module configuration is accomplished through remote, switch access• VMware vSphere hypervisor preinstalled; no initial onsite software provisioning required• Module configuration and management is accomplished through remote switch CLI• Application installation and configuration is accomplished through remote virtualization management tools such as Vcenter
  • This module occupies a single slot in either a E5400 or E8200 switch chassis. It utilizes a 2.53 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor. The module comes with 4 Gigabyte of RAM in the XenServer bundle and 8GB RAM in the VMware vSphere bundle and a 250 Gigabyte hard drive. Neither the memory or hard drive is user upgradable. The interface between the application and chassis is through the 10 gig Ethernet internal connection of the zl module. The HP E5400 and 8200 Switch Series consist of advanced intelligent switches in the E-Series product-line. The switch series includes 6 and 12 slot chassis and associated zl modules and bundles. Choice of network connectivity include 10/100, Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, and choice of PoE+ & Non-PoE connectivity modules. In addition, these switches are very power friendly.According to a recent Tolly Report comparing the Cisco Catalyst 3750 series of fixed port switches and the Catalyst 4500 chassis to the E5400/E8200 series switches, the E series chassis switches consume up to 26% less power, and deliver 3 to 8 times higher aggregate throughput and with lower latency. The VMware solution comes with a 60 day trail license and a license key that can be redeemed from VMware and installed on the system. It is also upgradeable through VMware. The Citrix solution ships with the free version of XenServer and is upgradeable to Enterprise or Platinum through Citrix. To continue to use the free version of XenServer after the first 30 days, it does require registration. This module requires K.15.05 or higher.
