OpenStack Summit Returns to its Birthplace, This Time 100x Bigger!

by Juniper Employee ‎05-04-2016 05:15 PM - edited ‎05-04-2016 05:36 PM

20160425_191221-01.jpegExciting times are upon us and this was once again reaffirmed while attending last week's OpenStack Summit in Austin! A record gathering of 7,500 attendees from across the world, the momentum and support for OpenStack and open source technologies continues to sky rocket across the vendor, developer, and end-user ecosystem. It was exceptionally eye opening to see how much the summit has matured since its debut six years ago in the same city - this year 100x larger in attendance!


We kicked off the month of April by completing the acquisition of BTI systems. The close of this acquisition will pave the way for Juniper to help drive the industry toward a more open, automated and highly efficient IP and optical transport network.

At the OpenStack conference, Juniper participated in 12 insightful sessions, including discussions on broad and deep OpenStack integration and bridging various cloud technologies, with a focus on automation and security. Juniper was featured in a number of customer-led sessions, including AT&T, Workday, tcp cloud, Lithium Technologies and eBay Classifieds, amongst others. At OpenStack we announced two products to enhance our Software-Define Secure Networks framework -- a new containerized SRX (cSRX), which is a compact SDN-controlled firewall providing L4-L7 micro services, along with a multi-core version of the virtual SRX (vSRX) now capable of reaching 100 Gbps.

Today we announced our 2016 Q1 financial results, reporting net revenues of $1,097.9 million. In response, Rami commented.
"While our results for the March quarter were disappointing, we remain constructive on the full year and encouraged by early customer feedback on our recently introduced products."

Check out this months featured content for more detail on our virtual security portfolio and financial results.


This month at RSA, we introduced the evolution of network security, the Software-Defined Secure Network (SDSN). As the scale and sophistication of threats continue to increase, next-generation security must be built around automated and actionable intelligence that can be shared quickly to reduce risk, protecting the network and its users. Juniper’s Software-Defined Secure Network delivers end-to-end network visibility that secures the entire network, physical and virtual. We deliver building blocks for the Software-Defined Secure Network that combines policy, detection, and enforcement with a comprehensive suite of products that centralizes and automates security. Check out the links under the resources section for more information.

Last week at OFC, we announced enhanced optical controls in Junos Space Connectivity Services Director and NorthStar SDN Controller, as well as new optical integration on PTX Series core routers and MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers at OFC. This allows for multilayer convergence to improve IP traffic scale and control for both data center interconnect and metro-area networks, thereby lowering operational expense and creating a foundation for both physical and virtual service creation.

Markets are changing, technologies are evolving, and customers are demanding more innovative ways to help propel them through their digital journey; this we know. In fact, every tech vendor is likely highlighting this very same point as they communicate their value add to the buyer audience and portray their significance to the third platform which today’s businesses must embrace if they hope to maintain relevance in the growing digital world.


To whom these forward looking customers choose as their next-generation infrastructure provider remains to be seen, especially with regard to the markets of software-defined networking and network functions virtualization, which vendor share has yet to be made clear while customers complete their POC trials. 


That said, what we can assume to be the reality for sales opportunities is the short list of tech providers that will make it into the sales room; particularly those that customers hold the deepest trust in providing the best solutions and have a track record of leadership through ever-changing market dynamics. These will be vendors that have proven their value to address the core values of a customer’s business, its future vision and the underlying intricacies to support the bottom line. In this regard, trust goes a long way with buyer decisions and those most trusted almost always stand above the rest. This is where Juniper truly excels! Having all the qualities customers hold important, Juniper ranked as the #1 trusted next-generation infrastructure and services vendor among North American service providers according to a recent survey conducted by Heavy Reading. Rightfully connected, this feat amongst the competition goes synergistically hand-in-hand with Juniper being recognized as the fastest growing router brand in North America by ACG Research, as highlighted in last month’s blog post. Considering all variables that come into factor when building the networks of tomorrow, rest assured that Juniper will be a leading contender in your next sales discussion.


2015 was an exciting year for Juniper Networks. Under the leadership of CEO Rami Rahim, Juniper got its groove back on many levels -- growth, customer satisfaction, employee morale, reputation in the market, product portfolio breakthroughs and refreshes across the span of our hardware, software and service portfolios. We also innovated Junos software licensing, our digital marketing playbook, vertical market strategy and more. Additionally, we were honored with partner collaborations and noteworthy customer wins throughout the year. Read some of our customer's stories using the links on the left-hand side. 
To conclude our year of innovation, we announced in December additional performance, density and operational efficiency improvements in our MX series 3D Universal Edge Routing portfolio. Our featured content dives deeper into these MX series improvements. We also included  a candid media interview with Matt Hurley, VP of field and channel marketing.


According to Synergy Research Group, Juniper is the fastest growing router brand among North America telecommunication companies. In fact, Juniper has its highest market share in over four years, returning to the second-ranked position in worldwide market share, ahead of Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei.
