Marvell doesn't merely hand HPE a product so that it can affix an HPE logo to it. Rather, we partner with HPE very early in the design process. This enables HPE to bring to market solutions that are truly unique. Examples include Virtual Connect FlexFabric, Virtual Connect direct attach for 3PAR, concurrent protocol converged adapters, and network partitioning. As a true partner, we invest in HPE at all levels and do not compete with HPE for the customer’s data center. Instead, we work together to make HPE more successful and deliver more to HPE customers.
