AllianceOne Networking Specialization Program Application

You have the opportunity to integrate your application with an applicable HP Networking delivery platform to help your customers achieve faster ROI and greater application performance. Application delivery modules include :
  • Services zl Module series for the 5400zl, and 8200zl switch series
  • MSR Open Application Platform (OAP) Modules for the MSR30-16, 50-40 or 50-60 series routers

Any application that can be run under Citrix XenServerTM, or VMware vSphere can be loaded onto one of these modules. Applications run on a dedicated processor, allowing you to utilize the full capability of the module without slowing the switch management and operations. Each module has a direct Ethernet link (Gigabit or dual 10Gigabit) into the backplane/switch fabric ensuring low-latency direct connection into the network.

Once integrated, you can offer your customers an unrivalled package containing switch, management and your application embedded, ideal for integrated deployments such as branch or retail. If you elect to sell a total solution embedding the HP components and your software into one unit, HP also offers an OEM program which you can use to get preferential pricing amongst other benefits. http://hp.com/go/oem
