In case you missed it, Juniper held an official launch event at 12N Central time (US) today for their new QFabric platform. What intrigued me the most was the maximum end-to-end delay of 5 microseconds. Here are a couple links that show the marketing pump-up-the-adrenaline type of advertisement they led the event with, as well as a 2:24 video with a brief explanation of the QFabric architecture. Also, here’s an Infographic: The 7 Defining Characteristics of QFabric.
Based on what I know of the Brocade VCS/VCX platform, this sounds similar in many ways. But I’m certainly not a Brocade expert!
Did you watch the launch event? What was your take on it?
Here are some screenshots I took of the more technical slides (which I think most engineers agree are more interesting than the marketing hype).
