At the stage where our old infrastructure vendor went out of business, College decided to replace the entire infrastructure with a new vendor. I performed the evaluation of multiple vendors and generated the reports of each vendor. The result came out to be Cisco as the top 99% vendor to go with. The other vendors were about 50% level. But the management decided to go with Juniper which was at 50%-60% level as compared to Cisco results. We had to follow the new management's decision so went with Juniper. We had been having various problems/outages etc. taking lots of time of every team member and disturbing the end users with this new unstable infrastructure that is in place.
Choose a stable vendor even though it’s more expensive, then other unstable vendors. Its stability will pay you back.
Nothing about the current product. The data center previously had Cisco cores and had never experienced an outage.
very unstable, causing frequent outages, crashes, power issues, image had to be upgraded several times.
The Firmware is very unstable so is the hardware, as it crashes and draws high power which is making UPS outages and causing the network outages.
Make the right decision in choosing the right vendor for stable infrastructure.

After migrating to a completely new DC Core what stood out was the logical structure of the Junos OS along with excellent support from Juniper. Both technical and sales support.
Get in contact with Juniper sales support. Excellent and responsive services.
Simplicity and virtualization of the management layer.
Intensive learning curve for those unfamiliar with Junos. (But it becomes great once one gets familiar with it)
Would be great if they had a scaled down version of their license structure that apply to smaller marketplaces.
We would definitely spend more time on low-level design and compare our requirements with actual hardware limits of different product versions.

We implemented the QFX line of switches from the MX series when we built out our new Data Center and DR sites. This turned out to be another great product and we were very satisfied with the product. It was an easy transition since it ran on the same JUNOS operating system, which makes it easy to deploy and manage.
We have standardized on Juniper network equipment so this was an easy integration and deployment to our infrastructure.

Juniper could not be more supportive or have provided greater assistance to us in helping to understand the product line and help us develop a strategy for our aged out network infrastructure.
Before you begin assessing vendor solutions, be certain to do a complete and comprehensive assessment and analysis of your network infrastructure, including site locations for equipment, culture challenges relative to change, and involvement of all primary stakeholders so that the decision is not that of any single person to help garner buy-in.
Extremely cost effective without sacrificing quality or power.

The only issue we had with the Vendor was the equipment showed up at different Rev levels that did not work well together and it took weeks to figure why we had some weird issues.
Make sure you involve Juniper, not just the reseller.
It is easy to configure and operate.
when there is a problem, the time for Juniper to examine logs and respond.
At the time, it seemed they would not listen to my staff when they explained the problem we were having. It seemed like they could not believe what we described was really the problem.
More testing of the fail over feature, that's where we saw the problems.
We looked at four different products this one did everything we needed at a very good price.
Just a lot of delays in getting answered at times, usually the questions would be answered immediately.
