LONDON, England, March 8 — Juniper Networks, the industry leader in network innovation, today announced PEER 1, a global Web hosting provider, has deployed Juniper's integrated routing, switching and security technology in its U.K. data center to provide its customers with carrier-grade performance, reliability and security. PEER 1's new network supports the company's sustainable mission of reducing energy consumption while increasing processing power and utilizing less data center rack space. Juniper's solution helps PEER 1 to reduce its downtime in its flagship green data center in Portsmouth by approximately 33 percent compared to previous legacy systems. PEER 1's new facility is one of the greenest data centers in the U.K., delivering Power Usage Efficiency (PUE) scores much higher than the industry standard. This allows end customers to lower the environmental impact of their IT infrastructure when they use the new facility.
PEER 1 offers a full range of co-location, dedicated and managed hosting services to its customers that want to offer Internet applications while maintaining performance and uptime. This includes value-added solutions such as 3D graphics processing and payment card industry (PCI) compliant security levels. PEER 1 customers have been known to run e-commerce, voice and video streaming over the Juniper Networks infrastructure utilizing internal 10GbE data center uplinks as well as redundant diverse 10Gbps routes to transport connections.
"Our rapid growth in the past few years means that we required support from a company such as Juniper Networks, ensuring that we remain on track to deliver the great hosting and great service that PEER 1 has become known for. Juniper's innovation has enabled us to provide the highest level of secure user services at very low levels of energy consumption; and it supports our 'Green' mission with its high-performance network infrastructure built on reliable, high quality products that are environmentally friendly." - Dominic Monkhouse, managing director, EMEA, PEER 1
"PEER 1's new network will help the company expand its footprint in the U.K. and Europe to satisfy customer demands for high-quality service while remaining true to its energy efficient goals. The implementation of the Junos operating system across its Juniper infrastructure will deliver operational simplicity and offer ease of management across PEER 1's 18 facilities by reducing the time and effort required to plan, deploy and operate a network and security infrastructure." - Mike Marcellin, senior vice president, strategy and marketing, Platform and Systems Division, Juniper Networks
