InterVision Introduces J Stack to Enable Rapid Deployment of Data Centers and Cloud Networks

J Stack Blog

InterVision today announced J Stack, a new converged cloud stack. Our Engineering Team has worked with Juniper Networks to develop the J Stack reference architecture and configure J Stack in our Demo Lab. J Stack builds upon our expertise architecting and deploying thousands of converged architectures for our customers and our deep expertise across Juniper solutions.  With J Stack, InterVision has achieved its goal to provide customers with an open, plug-and-play infrastructure to quickly deploy data center and cloud networks.

J Stack utilizes Juniper’s  MetaFabric™ Architecture, made up of Juniper Networks EX Series and QFX Series switches and Juniper Networks Contrail Networking, working within Virtual Chassis (VC) or Virtual Chassis Fabric (VCF) configurations.  Storage is provided by a NetApp fabric-attached storage (FAS) system with Clustered Data ONTAP (cDOT). cDOT is the enabler for NetApp scale-out storage configurations with J Stack. Virtually all open systems from Dell and Hewlett-Packard that support 10GbE, including Dell PowerEdge R-series servers and HP ProLiant Gen9 Rack Servers, can be configured in a J Stack. For more about the reference architecture, see the J Stack Data Sheet.

InterVision’s J Stack was featured in announcements made today by Juniper during NXTWORK 2015 Customer Summit, their inaugural user conference held in Santa Clara. In its data center announcement, Juniper introduced the QFX5200 series of switches to support the emerging 25 and 50 GbE standard.  Juniper also highlighted InterVision’s J Stack converged stack offering in their announcement.

I was invited to attend the NXTWORK and participate in media briefings. This included a live interview with  Silicon ANGLE the CUBE, which focuses on enterprise technology and innovation. Our discussion covered  trends that are driving the need for converged stack solutions, the genesis of J Stack, and InterVision’s investment in building its software-defined data center and hybrid cloud practice areas.

We developed J Stack in response to the increasing pressure organizations face to deliver applications at the speed of business while simultaneously maintaining control of users and costs. There’s never been a greater need for automation and programming capabilities to quickly and easily deploy new apps, services, and technologies in a simple and open way. With J Stack, InterVision has created a reference architecture and service delivery model that uses best-in-class components to remove the barriers to deploying a flexible private cloud.
