Juniper's Cloudy Forecast
That's "some," because she thinks Juniper isn't ready to spill the beans on Stratus, the data center fabric that's not a single product and still not ready for public view. (Wasn't it supposed to debut already? See Juniper's Ready for Stratus.) Trebnick's guess is that it's less of a fabric and more of a complete data-center architecture like the Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO) Universal Computing System (UCS). (See Cisco Dreams of Data Center Unity.)
In a research note published this morning, Trebnick writes that the announcement should include a lot of Juniper's latest toys: the Trio chipset, the partner ecosystem for Junos software, and multichassis switches. (See Juniper Takes Over the Network.)
Juniper previously announced some cloud intentions with a program called Cloud-Ready Data Center that uses MX 3D routers, Junos, and the SRX platform that combines routing and security.
