Several IT companies are in the process of reinventing themselves.
After all, Michael Dell did bring his company back private, even though many skeptics said at the time he wouldn't succeed.
To be sure, HP CEO Meg Whitman has no intention of bringing the company private, but HP did
something this week that it should have done months ago.
HP yesterday launched its SDN App Store, and it's an initiative at putting industry partners,
consultants and support services for SDN applications in one single place.
Tools like network monitors, virtualized firewalls, server load balancers, and other applications
from both HP and its partners will be available for enterprise customers to download and run
on their networks.
So far, HP has put forward four categories of SDN applications. The HP Circle will carry apps
developed by HP alone, The Premium Circle will then have top seller apps that have been tested
both by HP and its partners.
Overall, Partner Circle apps will be self-tested by partners and reviewed by HP, while the
Community Circle will carry demo and concept open-access apps.
The store will launch with apps from BlueCat (DNS policy), Ecode (the Evolve SDN orchestrator),
F5 (the BIG DDoS protection suite), GuardiCore (internet security again), KEMP (load balancing), Real
Status (hybrid cloud and SDN management), and last but not least, HP's Network Protector and Network
Alongside its SDN app store, HP has launched integration and deployment support under the
Trusted SDN Security Deployment moniker.
