The HP and Alcatel-Lucent solution brings together key
data center services and networking offerings from the portfolios of both
companies. The DCNC supports immediate data center demands such as
consolidation, business continuity and security, while laying the foundation for
service-oriented, on-demand computing technologies.

Alcatel-Lucent and HP’s solution is based on technology
engineered to satisfy telecommunications service providers that expect their
networks to perform with exceptional reliability and meet their needs far into
the future,” said Philippe Keryer, president, Networks Group, Alcatel-Lucent. 

DCNC combines HP’s technologies and services for data
centers with Alcatel-Lucent’s optical transport solutions for service providers
and its service routing and switching portfolio, which are key elements of the
Alcatel-Lucent High Leverage Network (HLN) architecture.

DCNC will leverage the strength of Alcatel-Lucent’s
CloudBand solution which accesses the power of the distributed network
infrastructure to offer enterprises and governments access to the cloud with
the quality of service their activities require.
