The virtualization of today’s enterprise data centers has resulted in greater server utilization and higher application availability.
Typically, the IT infrastructure in these environments is managed by two different groups: Server Administrators, who manage the compute and storage resources, and Network Administrators, who manage the network itself.

Next week Juniper will be heading to the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas for the VMware Partner Exchange (PEX). If you are planning to be there, we hope to have a chance to have a conversation with you. This is an exciting time for Juniper in the data center. For one, we are back at the PEX and continuing to build momentum with the global leader in virtualization solutions. And second, it highlights Juniper’s commitment to building the best virtualized data centers for our customers.
