Taking an Integrated Approach to IT infrastructure with Universal Smart Blocks

Federal agencies are faced with managing hybrid network, storage, and computing environments that have been implemented to meet diverse mission and performance objectives. Today, IT professionals are actively seeking practical methods to make existing and future IT assets work together in a more uniform and consistent manner.

In response, Juniper and Interclypse formed an alliance to deliver interoperable components for networking, computing and storage that are designed to be compatible “out of the box.” This executive briefing will explain this concept and implementation strategy, Universal Smart Blocks (USB), and why it is an excellent fit for government networks.

The USB approach addresses common challenges for Federal IT professionals, including how to:

  • Acquire non-proprietary systems designed to be interoperable
  • Optimize IT infrastructure for performance, scale, and consistency
  • Make converged systems interoperate with legacy systems
  • Streamline procurement processes for incremental purchases

Given these business and technical mandates, the USB focuses on interoperable components built on open standards that are cloud-ready and workforce-focused. With USB, not only do new systems work well from the outset, they also are configurable for backward compatibility with installed infrastructures. USB allows users to configure up front, simplify acquisition, and buy completely configured, open systems from a single company.

Plan to invest an hour to learn more about how you can “future-proof” your operations with technologies designed to move forward with your environment. Attendees will hear an overview of USB and how this approach allows you to acquire what you need today with the option to add capacity that will be compatible in the future.

Register now and don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to meet your technical and business objectives with a flexible, open, and standards-based networking strategy.
