HP Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) is an innovative technology for switch platform virtualization, which allows dramatic simplification of the design and operations of data center and campus Ethernet networks. IRF overcomes the limitations of traditional STP-based and legacy competitive designs by delivering new levels of network performance and resiliency.

HP Virtual Connect (VC) is an industry standard-based implementation of server-edge virtualization. It cleanly separates server enclosure administration from LAN and SAN administration and allows you to add, move, or replace servers without impacting production LAN and SAN availability.

This complimentary white paper provides detailed configuration and testing information of common usage scenarios using HP 5820 and 5800 Switch Series utilizing IRF to form a logical switch, which connects to the server HP BladeSystem-integrated VC modules.
