Juniper Networks and NYSE Euronext are teaming up on an effort to consolidate and enhance the data center networks that power billions of transactions every day. (Statement)
NYSE Euronext's two new data centers will be a key part of the work being done to consolidate the number of global data centers from ten to four - with the new centers being built in the New York and London metropolitan areas joining existing centers in Paris and New York. The centers, which are expected to be operational in 2010, will use Juniper's Data Center Infrastructure Solutions and data center technology to support "an unprecedented internal latency of 50 microseconds roundtrip."
In a statement, Juniper Networks CEO Kevin Johnson said:
Competitiveness in the global financial markets is measured in microseconds and the NYSE Euronext trading platform is one of the world’s premiere high-performance networks, supporting billions of transactions each day. The NYSE Euronext technology vision is in alignment with Juniper’s next generation data center roadmap, which will lead to the creation of a single data center fabric that will deliver a quantum advance in scale, performance and simplicity, while lowering energy consumption and reducing overall operating costs.
Its modern day design includes collapsing the multiples layers of switching equipment in current deigns, requiring fewer devices and interconnections and helping save on space, power, cooling and management.
The company says its solution can reduce total cost of ownership by as much as 52 percent in capital expenditures, 44 percent in power, 44 percent in cooling and 55 percent in data center rack space.
