Mobile devices and social media have moved beyond the “cool” stage. Today, they play an important and integral role in how we work, live and conduct business.  As a result, many industries—and even entire economies—are rapidly becoming technology- and, more specifically, app-driven. The financial services industry (FSI) is moving quickly to monetize this trend, and the combination of Juniper’s new QFX5100-AA switch and QFX-PFA FPGA module is helping them succeed while conforming to regulatory requirements.

The Financial Services Industry (FSI) is on the cusp of a big wave of changes, driven by trends such as heuristic processing of real-time social media feeds for market sentiment, analytics-based decision making, credit risk analysis, and digitized banking. Before financial organizations can capitalize on the opportunities affected by these trends, a fundamental architectural shift is required—one that rethinks compute element distribution and how applications are delivered in the data center.

Part1 of this blog, was a reaction to Scott Shenker’s SDNv2.0 sequel announcement at the Internet2 Technology Exchange conference. Here we go over Juniper’s approach of bringing in all the SDN goodies that were glossed over by the initial OpenFlow approach. For those of you who are interested - yes, some of the Juniper routing and switching products also support OpenFlow!

For those of you who missed the news, Scott Shenker one of the founding fathers of the OpenFlow protocol and SDN movement spoke at the Internet2 Technology Exchange conference. A nice article on SDN central covers this - Time for an SDN Sequel? Scott Shenker Preaches SDN Version 2. It is interesting that Scott has admitted to having misgivings on SDN, and that he is trying to direct a ‘sequel’.  Or should I call it - a reboot!

The mantra these days is to “do more with less.” How can you do this if you are in an IT organization? Answer: by virtualizing your IT assets. The fact is that many businesses are already realizing the cost and operational benefits of virtualizing compute and storage resources in their data centers. The next logical step from there is to maximize ROI by virtualizing your network to evolve to a private cloud environment. Getting to such a strategy does not happen overnight since you need to develop a comprehensive understanding of technology trends, as well as the challenges that accompany a successful private cloud rollout.

by Juniper Employee ‎04-01-2014 05:33 PM - edited ‎04-02-2014 01:28 PM

Network infrastructure is often regarded either as a means to an end or a utility, like plumbing or electricity. As long as data is flowing, the network rarely merits a second thought.

Breathing, blinking, sleeping: these are things we never really think about doing; they just happen.  Staying connected is rapidly approaching that same level of expectation; we don’t really give it a second thought—we just take it for granted.
