Juniper and Lenovo alliance targets data centre growth
Juniper Networks has entered into a global partnership with Lenovo aimed at developing data centre solutions.
The alliance aims to bring together Juniper’s expertise in networking with Lenovo’s strength in servers and switches in order to provide data centre infrastructure.
The move will enable customers to purchase Juniper’s portfolio of networking products directly from Lenovo.
The two companies will also collaborate to bring open solutions to the market, leveraging the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) model. The solutions will target enterprise customers, service providers, channel partners and system integrators.
“Our partnership with Juniper Networks provides Lenovo access to an industry leading portfolio of products that include software defined networking solutions – essential for state-of-the-art data center offerings” - Gerry Smith, Lenovo executive vice president and chief operating officer, PC and enterprise business group.
