Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) announced the launch of its Juniper Networks Design and Architecture Center, an interactive website that provides customers and partners with rich media content to assess, design and implement modern data center network solutions. From industry trend-focused videos to technical how-to'ss and installation guides, the new site enables customers and partners to make informed decisions as they build and evolve cloud data center networks, says Juniper.

“Data center network requirements have changed substantially in the past 10 years for many enterprises, as applications have evolved from simple client/server designs to service-oriented, distributed architectures,” asserts Mark Fabbi, VP and distinguished analyst at Gartner, Inc. Juniper notes that the relevant information needed to make informed decisions on how to modernize data centers has traditionally been scattered across different sites. The Juniper Networks Design and Architecture Center addresses the need for a simplified process of finding this critical information in one central repository. By organizing business and technical content in an easy-to-use, modern interface, the site helps users to access the right information in various formats to assist them with building smart, secure and open data center networks.

The Design and Architecture Center is billed as "a one-stop shop" incorporating more than 80 curated assets detailing the latest techniques on how to build, manage and evolve increasingly complex data centers. Juniper says it leveraged industry expert and community opinions from network engineers and architects to produce integrated assets that address the latest data center network trends and technical priorities for its customers.

The site offers prescriptive guidance that is aligned to use cases and relevant network challenges that customers and partners face and bridges the gap between high-end solutions content and more detailed technical documents. The portal offers a rich multimedia experience with continuously updated holistic content that allows customers and partners to consume information in preferred ways.

“While creating the Juniper Networks Design and Architecture Center, we took an outside-in perspective by working with our sales team, customers and multiple partner organizations. This new resource hub empowers and enables our partners and educates our customers on the latest data center trends, solutions and Juniper Networks MetaFabric Architecture innovations," comments Ben Jackson, vice president of Information and Learning Experience, Juniper Networks. "Moving forward, we plan to use this collaborative and integrated model to deliver the optimal information experience to all of our customers and partners.”
