Juniper unveils green data centre infrastructure solutions with IBM

Juniper Networks has jumped into the data centre fray, partnering with IBM to launch a new offering for data centre consolidation, server virtualization and sustainable information technology. Juniper, like most of its rivals these days, is claiming significant green credentials for its new data centre solution.

According to Juniper, its Data Center Infrastructure Solutions can significantly reduce network complexity and total cost of ownership by up to 52% in capital expenditures, up to 44% in power, up to 44% in cooling and up to 55% in rack space in the data centre.

Juniper’s data centre approach includes switching, routing and security technologies, all running on its JUNOS network operating system, together with IBM server and storage hardware.

“Current market challenges require businesses to add more agility to the data centre and it is clear that the network must play a critical role,” said Cindy Borovick, research vice president at IDC.

“Juniper’s approach provides a path for operational innovation, allowing businesses to provision services quickly and cost-effectively to meet the demands of the new data centre.”
“Juniper has a proven track record in enabling high-performance businesses to scale their networks without compromise,” said Matt Miller, Enterprise System Engineering Manager ANZ at Juniper Networks.

“We are now extending the expertise we have gained from mission-critical deployments worldwide into the data centre.”

IBM and Juniper say they are focused on delivering best-in-class solutions to their mutual customers.

“IBM’s New Enterprise Data Centre is an evolutionary new model for efficient IT service delivery that guides customers through a progression of  simplified, shared and dynamic infrastructure, with each stage delivering value that allows businesses to provision new services quickly and cost effectively without added complexity and risk,” said IBM’s Jim Comfort, vice president, Systems and Technology Group.

“Juniper’s approach to simplifying data centre information infrastructure tightly aligns with our New Enterprise model, and helps customers progress to the shared and dynamic phases of the model. Together, Juniper and IBM can help our customers transform their mission-critical data centres to fuel operational innovation.”
