Juniper Ramping Media Flow Content Delivery

Juniper Networks is ramping up its content-delivery options, taking the wraps off a new set of hardware appliances that aims to clear I/O bottlenecks that slow the transmission of large media files.

The roll-out of the new VXA line of Linux-based appliances comes as a complement to the software solution offered by Ankeena, which Juniper acquired earlier this year. Enterprise Networking Planet takes a look at Juniper's latest moves to speed content delivery.


Networking vendor Juniper Networks this week debuted new hardware to support its Media Flow content delivery software, giving the networking player a boost in wooing content publishers, service providers and content delivery networks (CDNs) to its solution.

The Media Flow technology comes by way of Juniper's acquisition of software vendor Ankeena earlier this year. Media Flow provides customers with content caching and acceleration capabilities.
