Customers rely on HP ProCurve, including the recently announced HP ProCurve Open Network Ecosystem (ProCurve ONE) and data center solutions, to help lower costs, mitigate risks and drive business growth, said a company spokesperson.

“This updated market growth data reflects the increasing number of customers who have turned to HP ProCurve for alternative business technology solutions that have become critical to their success.”-TradeArabia News Service
