Juniper Networks Enables Mid-Sized Data Centers to Scale as Demands on the Network Increase

New QFX3000-M QFabric System and EX8200 Enhancements Deliver Simplified Management, Improved Performance and Seamless Scale

Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, announced the immediate availability of the Juniper Networks® QFX3000-M1 QFabric™ System, a new model that extends the full benefits of Juniper’s first QFabric System, the QFX3000-G, to mid-sized data centers. The new QFX3000-M occupies up to 63 percent less space, uses up to 74 percent fewer cables and consumes up to 57 percent less power than competitive solutions. Also today, Juniper has added enhancements to its EX8200switches running Virtual Chassis technology, enabling customers for the first time to manage up to four data center cores as a single switch.

These new additions to the Juniper Networks portfolio simplify data center management and improve business agility for enterprises while eliminating the complexity inherent in multi-layered legacy networks. The QFX3000-M is designed for mid-tier data centers, satellite data centers and new 10GbE data center pods as well as space-constrained environments, delivering improvements in scale, simplicity and performance — the key network attributes needed to meet rising storage convergence, big data and virtualization demands.

Release Highlights

  • Seamless Investment Protection and Scale: Core to the QFX3000-M, Juniper is introducing a new fixed form-factor interconnect, the Juniper Networks QFX3600-I, which allows customers to incrementally scale, from 48 10GbE ports and up to 6,144 10GbE ports using the QFX3000-G QFabric System.
  • Blazing Fast Speed: With stellar performance the new QFX3000-M enables blazingly fast server-to-server traffic speed with only three microseconds of latency.
  • Seamless Integration: Also announced today is the QFX3600 node, which like the previously announced QFX3500, provides entry into both QFabric Systems. The QFX3600 is scheduled for release as a 40GbE top-of-rack switch in 2H 2012.
  • Flexibility and Seamless Transition: New features on the EX8200, Juniper’s data center solution for mixed 1GbE and 10GbE environments, include the industry’s only inter-site data center connectivity allowing network managers to manage up to four data centers, separated by up to 80 km, as a single location.
