IBM Research Accelerated Discovery Lab deploys Juniper's solutions

Oct 15, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) -- Juniper Networks, Inc., a manufacturer of networking equipment, has announced that IBM Research Accelerated Discovery Lab is using Juniper Networks QFabric System, SRX Series Services Gateways and MX Series routers, to deliver network connectivity.


Supporting IBM Research's initiative to accelerate the insight discovery process and research timeline for Big Data analytics projects, Juniper's solutions provide a solid networking foundation that delivers the immense computing capacity and advanced analytics capabilities necessary to tackle some of the most perplexing challenges in the scientific and business worlds.

IBM Research's Accelerated Discovery Lab, located within the IBM Research-Almaden facility in Silicon Valley, uses a massive scale data and analytics computing platform to collaborate with clients to uncover Big Data insights. With the deterministic low latency of QFabric and its single switch management capability that scales to over 6000 10GbE ports, the Lab can bring together all of the necessary elements - IBM's Big Data analytics infrastructure, research expertise and a unique user experience - to address some of today's most pressing world challenges.

Especially in the natural resources sector, where most data is unstructured, there has been explosive growth in the need to analyze and transform the data into actionable foresight.

The combination of Juniper's industry-leading SRX Series high-performance security gateways and the QFabric single-layer, flat network system provides a simplified and security-rich data center infrastructure that helps support the Accelerated Discovery Lab's requirements for security, performance and scale.

In addition, the Accelerated Discovery Lab has implemented Juniper Networks MX Series routers, which are purpose-built to withstand the demands of the most bandwidth-intensive environments. This approach creates a high capacity, high performance access-to-edge data center network enabling end-to-end connectivity for virtualized servers, storage and other critical systems which together deliver extremely fast processing power.

"The Accelerated Discovery Lab brings clients and IBM researchers together to quickly transform Big Data into actionable insights when tackling some of world's biggest challenges in the areas of genetic research, public health and energy conservation. It would be difficult to handle the sheer volume of complex data if not for the speed and scalability of Juniper's QFabric solution. This solution, integrated with Juniper's security and routing, enables high-performance access to applications and virtualized workloads, regardless of where the data resides," said Laura Haas, IBM fellow and director, Technology and Operations, Accelerated Discovery Lab, IBM Research.

"From smart grid development to artificial intelligence and genome sequencing, a high-performance network is critical to accelerating business and scientific discovery. We value our long-standing partnership with IBM and this latest deployment is a great example of how Juniper's innovative technology helps enable Big Data analytics to solve some of the toughest health and scientific challenges of our day," said Mike Marcellin, senior vice president, strategy and marketing, Platform Systems Division, Juniper Networks.
