Juniper Unveils QFabric
Juniper Networks unveiled QFabric, what it calls the first true data center fabric.
Born from Juniper's Project Stratus, the first offering to emerge from QFabric is the QFX3500. The Ethernet switch is described as a high-performance, ultra low latency, feature-rich L2 and L3 solution for supporting a wide range of deployment scenarios including traditional and virtualized data centers, high-performance computing, network-attached storage, converged server I/O and cloud computing.
Juniper is testing its QFabric products with education firms, financial-services companies and health care businesses. The rest of the product portfolio is expected to come to market later this year.
