SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today reinforced its commitment to the data center by disclosing the existence of a program within the company to deliver the next generation data center fabric. The program, code-named the Stratus Project, represents an initiative to create a single data center fabric that will deliver a quantum jump in scale, performance and simplicity, with the flexibility to support fully converged and virtualized data center environments. The Stratus Project is being developed by the newly announced Data Center Business Group, under the leadership of Executive Vice President David Yen, Ph.D.

Juniper Networks has a vision for a Cloud Computing Infrastructure that enables operational innovation based on the ability to connect everything and empower everyone. This vision paves the way to super data centers which can harness the scale to dynamically allocate any resource, including routing and security services, storage, appliances and servers without compromise. Legacy architectures constrain today’s data centers as they attempt to cope with the exponential increase in applications, servers, storage and network traffic. By rethinking the network from the ground up, Juniper has created a long-term strategy to develop a single data center fabric with the flexibility and performance to scale to super data centers, while continuing to drive down the cost and complexity of managing the data center information infrastructure.

“Juniper’s Stratus Project addresses the modern mega data center’s pain points and endeavors to enable cloud computing to fulfill its maximum potential,” said Yen. “Reinventing and flattening the data center network is a very hard problem to solve and it requires a unique set of expertise and resources to tackle this challenge. High-performance businesses are in search of operational innovation and Juniper is committed to helping customers advance the economics of high-performance networking by creating a more elastic and efficient infrastructure from which to deliver services at unmatched scale while minimizing total cost of ownership.”
