HP Creates SDN App Store

The HP SDN App Store will enable HP partners to deliver and sell SDN applications to HP SDN customers. To help partners build SDN applications, HP is also providing an SDN Developer Kit (SDK) that provides tools and information needed to build SDN applications. Part of the HP SDN developer effort is also a virtual lab, that will let HP partners test out their SDN applications.

Shaikh explained that the HP SDN App Store will offer multiple tiers of applications, including free community software and enterprise-certified software. Among the certified software offerings, HP plans to have software from partners including Citrix, Microsoft and VMware. The SDN App Store will also provide access to applications that HP has built.

Kash Shaikh, senior director, Product & Technical Marketing at HP Networking, explained to Enterprise Networking Planet that HP aims to lower the barriers to adoption for SDN with its new open marketplace efforts.
