I visited Iceland for the first time a couple of weeks back. What a fascinating country, and completely different from places that I have seen in Europe. Iceland has got a great advantage of natural resources such as geothermal energy, natural air cooling and water, which the nation take big benefits from. From small businesses to large ones, they are aware of the unique natural gift they have got and are using it very effectively, reducing their energy costs. This positions the country as a sustainable, green location for data centers with zero-carbon footprint!


The Zero-Down Time DC Migration. You Can Do It, Too

by Juniper Employee ‎01-15-2015 03:04 AM - edited ‎01-15-2015 03:06 AM

Here’s a hypothetical situation for you. Let’s say you run a hosting company. And naturally you want to grow. Fast. More customers, more connections, more cloud. You want to differentiate yourself by offering the greatest possible flexibility and security, whilst guaranteeing data privacy for your customers. This was not a hypothetical situation for SW Hosting. This dynamic young company based in Spain was poised to grow. After analyzing the market they knew that a Juniper Networks MetaFabric Architecture was what they needed from a technical standpoint, but there were still SWHosting logo.pnglots of questions about how to actually go about doing it. So they turned to Juniper Networks Professional Services to provide the skills and resources to work with their own engineers towards a single goal: the success of the project.


“It’s your network that’s not performing” A familiar refrain from the Developer whose application is coming under fire for not performing properly. 


The challenge that many network operations staff face is that today’s Data Centre networks are becoming increasingly complicated with many complex components including large switching, routing and VLAN architectures that can be implicated in performance degradations. This is further compounded with the fact the performance hits can be transient with issues such as microbursts and the net result is like trying to track down the will-o’-the- wisp.


If you’ve seen the Hollywood film The Butterfly Effect’ you’ll perhaps recall that even the smallest of decisions made in the past can sometimes lead to unwanted consequences in the future.


Paying attention to decisions being made in the data centre network are more important now than at any time in perhaps the last 15 years.  For guys more concerned with applications and server platforms, the DC LAN has often been regarded as mere plumbing, and is usually someone else’s concern to make sure it’s working as needed, or else it’s just something that gets delivered with the rest of the package from your compute vendor.  Yet right now, networking in the data centre is going through a period of transformation, and any decisions being made today concerning the choice of DC LAN vendor, or architecture, could significantly impact the shape of your entire data centre for the next 10 years.


Juniper to demonstrate VMware integration at VMworld Barcelona!

 Less than a week to go and we are all set for a great week in Barcelona! Juniper will be attending VMworld, Barcelona for the second time and what great timing it is this year, coming off the back of a number of VMware NSX integration annoucements and our new VMware NSX Partner status.


What is an application driven datacenter? Find out at IP Expo.

After the summer break, it's good to be getting back out on the circuit; October is a busy month for trade shows and conferences in Europe!


On October 16-17 Juniper will be supporting our UK partners1 Alternative Networks and Network Utilities at IP Expo in London. We have a number of speakers2 representing Juniper;  I'll be talking in the Data Centre theatre about Application Driven Data Centres.


So what do I mean by that?


Big data is big business and one of the fastest growing areas of the ICT market. But why should you care about the network when you are planning you big data application deployments? As long as you have the right connectivity and ‘enough’ bandwidth then what more is there to consider? Well, quite a lot as it turns out.


Juniper at VMWorld 2012, Mission Accomplished.

Last week I was helping out at the Juniper Networks booth at VMWorld in Barcelona. It's the first time I've attended the event. It's big! I heard some 7000 people attended. I believe it!


A Juniper Networks EMEA Customer Case Study


In my role as a Customer Reference Manager at Juniper Networks, over and above how ‘cool’ technology is, of most importance to me are the benefits technology brings to our customers.  By actively listening to our customers we get an even deeper understanding of organisations’ goals and drivers, and see the role of technology in enabling them to meet objectives - often exceeding their original expectations.


One company I’ve had the pleasure of working with recently is TMX Atrium. TMX Atrium provides low latency connectivity to the financial services community across Europe and North America. This connectivity and access to over 300 data sources, enables their customers to deal and interact during trading hours. Secure, high-speed connectivity is at the heart of their business. Without it, they simply wouldn’t exist. If a packet is dropped across the network, then a client loses a trade and the consequences are clear; they are at risk of losing substantial amounts of money.


Bringing Data Center Security out of the Shadows

by Juniper Employee ‎08-08-2012 03:48 AM - edited ‎08-08-2012 06:03 AM

Traditional data center networks cast shadows in which security appliances must operate. Modern data centers don't just need new architectures to increase performance, they need them to increase the ability to apply and manage security services.
