Hosting BlogSAN FRANCISCO — Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) today unveiled QFabric, the world’s first true data center fabric. An outcome of “Project Stratus,” Juniper’s multiyear data center network research and development initiative, 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.

QFabric enables exponential improvements in data center speed, scale and efficiency, by removing legacy barriers and improving business agility. QFabric’s flat architecture also enables the industry’s first integrated security solution that provides visibility, enforcement and scale across the entire physical and virtual data center fabric. Juniper has invested three years and more than $100 million in research and development to address these constraints, creating a new architecture that is designed to be the foundation of data centers for the next decade. QFabric delivers on Juniper’s 3-2-1 data center network architecture — collapsing the traditional three-layer network down to a single, high-performance layer. Read more
