Juniper Networks has introduced a switch designed to offer customers who build large data centers an open and disaggregated switching platform.
The new Juniper OCX1100 combines Open Compute Project (OCP) hardware design with Junos OS, the carrier-class network operating system. Juniper says the new product removes the support, installation and maintenance burden from cloud providers while delivering an open-source hardware design.
Available early next year, the OCX1100 is aimed at large cloud providers such as Web 2.0 and Web-hosting companies that build data centers that support tens of thousands of servers.
“The introduction of the OCX1100 is an example of Juniper Networks not only embracing the disruption brought on by emerging cloud technologies, but also moving the industry forward by providing the largest cloud providers with a viable option to create cost-effective and reliable large scale data centers. We remain committed to constant innovation and building open products that provide our customers with the technology they need today and in the future,” said Mike Marcellin, senior vice president, strategy and marketing, Juniper Networks.
