As referred to in my previous blog - ‘Juniper Networks hosts EMEA Qfabric Press and Analyst event’, we hosted a QFabric event for some of our top European press and analysts from organisations such as Datacenter Dynamics, IDC, The Register and many more on the 27 June 2012. This event was a great success, with informative presentations from Juniper specialists, covering topics such as ‘The evolution of the data centre’; ‘Juniper’s entrance into the data centre space with it’s first ever switch in 2008 to their current switch the QFX3000-M’; ‘The view on virtualization, looking at the trend of physical networks moving into virtual networks’ and a live customer presentation from Jan Yperman Hospital who discussed the importance of the network in medicine today.
The coverage Juniper received from this event was extremely positive with articles from Datacenter Dynamics, Redes&Telecom, Data Center Market, SearchNetworking, Lemondeinformatique.fr and Le Journal Des Telecoms. During the day we gathered some of the press and analysts thoughts of the event on camera. We have also continued to educate the market on the events topics by producing two blogs focused on the Jan Yperman Hospital story; ‘Jan Yperman Hospital a 100% Virtualised Environment to be powered by Juniper Networks’ and ‘The network of the future for Jan Yperman Hospital' and 2 videos discussing ‘The Benefits of QFabric and QFX’ and ‘The Security Implications of Virtualization’.
