Blending Cloud and SDN to Accelerate New Service Delivery
Using SDN, cloud services, and a powerful data center switching platform, eBay Classifieds automates its processes for meeting disparate web site requirements worldwide.
eBay Classifieds hosts advertising for all its global businesses, facing unique requirements in each market. With cloud, SDN, and a powerful data center switching platform, it has slashed the time it takes to build and deploy a classified site from months to hours.

eBay Classifieds sought to automate the process of building highly scalable virtual networks that could harness the cloud to activate new services, improve business response times, and increase revenue. It also required a solid physical switching infrastructure to power those processes and ensure reliability and instant response times.
Juniper’s Contrail Networking and Contrail Cloud Platform allowed eBay Classifieds to automate the configuration and operation of IT resources needed by its various brands’ cloud applications. The Juniper QFX5100 data center switch uses automation to set up expansions to the environment with zero touch provisioning.
eBay Classifieds can activate services faster and spin development environments up or down at will, instead of taking months. The company also no longer must physically dispatch personnel to its data centers to configure, re-patch, or remove servers; it accomplishes these tasks centrally using virtualization.
