Case Study

Delivering cloud-ready solutions for sky-high projections.

Web hosting company DreamHost is ready to meet business projections for rapid growth with an enhanced and expanded cloud-ready data center infrastructure.

“Juniper Networks had the best products for the job, given our requirements for redundancy, the protocols we needed, and how we will use the devices.”

Overview

DreamHost is the quintessential Internet startup, growing from a single Web server and no capital to the hosting of 1.2 million websites, blogs, and applications.

“DreamHost has experienced rapid, organic growth across its business. We needed to refresh and rebuild the network core to achieve our stability goals.”

Business Challenge

DreamHost has to deliver on its promise of quality service at an affordable price while continuing its steep growth trajectory.

“Juniper Networks had the best products for the job, given our requirements for redundancy, the protocols we needed, and how we will use the devices. That’s why we standardized on Juniper,” said Kenneth McRae, Infrastructure Director at DreamHost.

Business Solution

DreamHost adopted Juniper technology at all layers of the network as it built a new data center in Virginia and refreshed its three data centers in Southern California.

“Typically, people select best-of-breed for each layer. DreamHost was impressed to the point that we decided on a full adoption of the Juniper product line,” said McRae.

Business Results

Juniper has enabled DreamHost to achieve peak data center performance and strong security, meeting its goals for improved Web hosting availability, scalability, and cloud services delivery.

“DreamHost has more than 300,000 customers, and any kind of network interruption is a public event. We are counting on Juniper to provide the stability, uptime, reliability, and performance, and we have not been disappointed,” said McRae.
