Presentation highlighting Juniper Network's QFabric. QFabric delivers quantum leap improvements in data center performance, operating cost and business agility, from the enterprise to the large scale cloud provider. Engineered as a simplified, highly scalable data center network solution, QFabric enables a superior approach to building and securing virtualized data centers that eliminates the tradeoff between quality of experience and economics that plagues today's legacy networks.

  • Let's customers decide if they still want the old legacy stuff, it´s complexity, high costs to run it or if they want to be ready for the future. It might need some balls though to leave the old track or we let the ladies decide. Most have sharper minds and a great understanding when it is time for a paradigm change ...

  • The thing that Juniper doesn't seem to understand, as evidenced on slide 5, is that others have understood the limitations of the 'Typical tree configuration' for many years and have developed technology to address it as well. Juniper touts new architectures and while their innovation cannot be discounted it cannot be sold as to assume everyone else has been asleep at the development wheel for the past 5 years.

      Layers of Complexity
    • Challenges of Scale - Complexity
      The ability to add capacity while minimizing complexity
      SCALABILITY:
      n = number of managed network devices
      Limits of Scale
      n x (n-1)
      Today’s Real Complexity
