Designers, marketers, and social media mavens turn to Shutterstock for the perfect visual. An icon of the New York tech scene, Shutterstock has a nearly $3 billion market capitalization and enjoys annual revenue growth that averages about 30 percent.
Shutterstock’s challenge is one of massive growth. It collects more than 2.5 terabytes of data every day from photographers, videographers, and designers submitting tens of thousands of new art to be chosen for sale through the marketplace, and it expects exponential growth over the next few years.
With MetaFabric architecture, Shutterstock has a high-performance and scalable data center network solution built on an open framework that gives the maximum level of network programmability and automation. By operating all switching, routing, and security platforms with Junos OS, Shutterstock brings consistency and simplicity to its operations. And, this Juniper solution positions Shutterstock to rapidly scale and adopt new applications and technologies as needed for the business.
MetaFabric architecture has enabled Shutterstock to expand its data center to support exponential business growth while evolving to a private cloud. It can support agile processes to develop, test, and run new code more quickly, and it can adapt to changing business needs with an open, programmable network architecture. Greater automation and efficiency are also delivering a better experience for Shutterstock customers.
