i-Tech Deploys Juniper Networks in New Green Data Center

New Energy Efficient Facility Built on Integrated Switching, Routing and Security Has Low Total Cost of Ownership And Offers Robust Disaster Recovery and Managed Services

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA, May 15, 2013 - Juniper Networks, the industry leader in network innovation, today announced that Malaysia’s i-Tech Network Solutions Sdn Bhd (i-Tech) has deployed Juniper Networks’ integrated portfolio of switches, routers and security solutions in its new tier-3 green data center, SAFEHOUSE, to provide customers with disaster recovery solutions, co-location and managed services.

News Highlights

  • With IBM as its systems integrator, SAFEHOUSE has been designed as a highly energy-efficient green data center, helping i-Tech maintain a low total cost of ownership and appeal to clients and organizations that place sustainability as a top priority.
  • The data center deployed technologies from IBM, Schneider Electric and Juniper Networks and has a capacity of about 100 racks.
  • A two-tier data center network architecture, with Juniper Networks® EX8208 Ethernet Switches deployed at the core and EX4200 Ethernet Switches providing server access, supports i-Tech’s energy-efficiency goals while eliminating network performance bottlenecks and scalability constraints inherent in conventional three-tier network designs.
  • Besides reducing cost and complexity by eliminating the need for an aggregation layer, network operations at SAFEHOUSE are simplified by interconnecting multiple EX4200 switches in a Virtual Chassis configuration, enabling them to be managed as a single, logical device.
  • With Juniper Networks EX Series switches and SRX650 Services Gateways all running the Juniper Networks Junos® operating system, i-Tech benefits from streamlined network administration processes that greatly simplify network management and reduces operational costs.
  • The simplified data center architecture and highly-streamlined operational model enables i-Tech to introduce a new-generation of services based on cloud computing, without any constraints at the network level.

i-Tech Network Solutions is the technology arm and wholly-owned subsidiary of Ireka Corporation Bhd (KL: IRKA). i-Tech’s clients are predominantly small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) comprised largely of logistics, software and telecommunications companies, with more than 70 percent of them using i-Tech’s managed services.
