The Tokyo Institute of Technology Migrates to Junos – Your chance to build applications on the “New Network” in coming
Tokyo Institute of Technology, the country’s largest and most prestigious science and technology university, has migrated its multi-site campus network to a robust high-performance infrastructure running the Junos® operating system. This is a great showcase of a new network. Your chance to build applications on the new network is coming soon.
I think everyone saw this one coming. It will be interesting to see what happens with the Mono Project.
I get a message today from the Live Spaces Team giving me an opportunity to migrate my blog to WordPress.
“We are now upgrading your Windows Live Spaces blog to WordPress.com and it will be ready to use soon. Though the process could take as long as a day, it usually happens faster than that. If you experience any issues with your upgrade, please check out our Windows Live Spaces Help Center for resources and contact information.”
One has to wonder how long it will be before we get the same note from the Bing team asking if I want to do the same with search.
This is not a slam on the WordPress Team (great product) but come on Microsoft - Do you guys remember what the word commitment really means? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commitment
Ask any server administrator how easy it is to manage Windows, Linux, Unix, and mainframe OSes all at the same time. Chances are they will spend hours telling you about lost productivity, frustrated end users and in many cases lost revenue. Unfortunately, most network operations teams face that exact challenge if they’re running two to three vendors throughout their environment. This is the reason that we are taking at different approach at Juniper Networks with Junos. One open NOS that spans all of our devices. Over the course of the next several months, we’ll be discussing how developers can take advantage of our unique approach and leverage the network to build compelling new applications.
