By the way, if you're wondering about Juniper's QFX Series (QFabric): The idea was monumental enough for consideration, but it's also a pretty big risk on Juniper's part. The fact that it's tailored to the very largest data centers, for example, means it could have a limited impact -- or, admittedly, an enormous one. In the end, we were more comfortable leaving QFabric on the sidelines. (See How Q-ute! Juniper's QFabric Rethinks the Data Center.)
Don't forget: Leading Lights winners will be announced at an Awards Dinner at Hudson Terrace in New York City on Nov. 8, following the first day of Light Reading's Ethernet Expo Americas 2011 event.
