HP 125000 Series Core Network Switch Is a Major Component

A key component of the HP-based data center coming online in Atlanta is this A-12518 model core network switch. The data center, built for the marketing services firm DAS, also features a series of A5830 and A5900 top-of-rack switches, 119 HP ProLiant servers and HP storage hardware.


Hewlett-Packard gave tech reporters and bloggers a tour Sept. 6 of a new data center it developed for Diversified Agency Services (DAS), a marketing services firm, in Atlanta. DAS is part of Omnicon, the parent company of about 165 marketing, advertising and public relations agencies. While HP networking equipment abounds in the new data center, it also recommended the installation of some equipment from rival Cisco Systems in a few instances. DAS executives said HP acknowledged that some existing Cisco switches should stay where they are because some Cisco routers are more robust than HP’s and because HP doesn’t yet have a firewall product on the market.
