Nike has selected Juniper Networks' MetaFabric architecture to build a new, highly-scalable, next-generation data center cloud and retail network infrastructure. Additionally, MetaFabric will serve as the basis for virtualizing multiple NIKE data centers around the world.
Specifically, Juniper said it will work with Nike to provide:
- A carrier-class, ultra-scalable, secure network architecture, providing a foundation upon which to virtualize multiple NIKE data centers globally.
- Advanced orchestration via automation, management, and data analytics across all domains
- Co-creation on future developments for NIKE’s network.
“Enterprises are re-engineering their business models in light of changing customer behavior and emerging technologies. Managing this transformation requires an intelligent and comprehensive, High-IQ network infrastructure that seamlessly adapts to business demands. It also requires building private clouds that deliver applications with high performance and agility. Juniper’s technologies enable customers to realize the benefits of carrier-class, ultra-scalable cloud data center solutions that are virtualized, secure and flexible enough to accommodate the performance demands of their clients anywhere, anytime,” stated Shaygan Kheradpir, chief executive officer, Juniper Networks.
