Case Study

Simple, scalable, undeniable data centers.

Organizations such as banks, media and entertainment companies, retailers, and data center providers are increasingly turning to companies like Staminus to defend against cyber attacks as a routine part of doing business.

“Working with Juniper helped us build a simple-to-operate network backbone, and that allows us to focus our resources on core intellectual property development, which is DDoS mitigation.”

To protect its customers, Staminus operates DDoS mitigation centers in Los Angeles, New York, and Amsterdam. Having a high-performance global network allows Staminus to incapacitate even the largest DDoS attacks quickly and efficiently, so its customers can focus on their core business rather than cyber security.

Business Challenge

Staminus sought a high-performance, easy to configure 10GbE and 100GbE data center network that would support a high-density virtual server environment. The company also needed high-performance routers that would support a 200Gbps WAN among its mitigation centers, with an anticipated move to terabit speeds in six months.

Business Solution

To deliver DDoS protection to its customers, Staminus uses the QFX3500 Switch in its mitigation centers and EX4200 and EX3200 Ethernet Switches for ultra-high-density aggregation. Staminus also uses Junos Stylesheet Language Alternative Syntax (SLAX) for automation.

Business Results

Staminus turned to Juniper Networks to achieve network performance at scale, operational simplicity through automation, and easy integration at its global mitigation centers. The performance, reliability, and scalability of the Juniper infrastructure gives Staminus what it needs to mitigate thousands of DDoS attacks each week and still guarantee customers 99.99% uptime.

“Because of the massive capacity of the network, which is powered by Junos OS, we not only protect our customers, but also pass along savings to them,” said Staminus President Matt Mahvi.
