Telecom Lead China: Chinese Internet and mobile solution provider Qihoo 360 Technology has tapped Juniper Networks to build its new data center.
Leveraging the Juniper Networks QFabric architecture, Qihoo 360 Technology deployed a QFX3000-G QFabric System.
Qihoo 360 Technology has become the first site in China to deploy the Juniper Networks QFabric architecture.
The Internet and mobile solutions provider will benefit as the fabric system from Juniper is designed for large enterprises, service providers and cloud data center environments for supporting their expansion into new web-based services including search and cloud offerings.
“We are honored to work with a leading technology company like Qihoo 360 Technology and partner with them on growing into new markets while increasing their competitiveness. The deployment of QFabric at Qihoo 360 Technology is a strong endorsement that Juniper Networks’ solutions are the right choice for the most demanding data center applications and is further proof of success of our data center network simplification strategy,” said Douglas Murray, senior vice president, Asia Pacific, Juniper Networks.
Juniper claims that Qihoo 360 Technology currently supports more that 435 million users with its PC-based security solutions, 120 million mobile security users and 272 million users of its secure web browser — almost all of whom are in China.
“The QFabric solution caters to the demands of our current business and vision for future work and growth. It fully meets our need for low latency performance and scalability, together with ease of deployment, operations and maintenance, which result in a low total cost-of-ownership,” said Tan Xiaosheng, vice president, Qihoo 360 Technology.
Recently, Juniper Networks has promised 42 percent lower TCO to telecom operators by utilizing its new software and hardware products. Operational benefits will include 81 percent reduction in operation, administration and management (OAM) costs, and accelerated delivery of expanded services.
