Mixi, a social networking company in Japan, has selected Juniper Networks to implement data center solution utilizing QFX5100 Ethernet Switches to support MPLS/VRF.

The Japanese company will also utilize Juniper Networks MX480 3D Universal Edge Routers and EX Series switches to eliminate critical operational bottlenecks.

The end result from the Juniper Networks deployment will be movement of workloads between in-house and outsourced cloud data centers, improving customer experience and boosting developer productivity.

Mixi’s Monster Strike smartphone app has a customer base of more than 30 million national and international players since its launch in October 2013. The company has recently formed XFLAG STUDIO to provide a dedicated focus on gaming and video content development for its entertainment division.

“When we compared cloud data center systems from other companies, we felt that the Juniper Networks configuration management solution was much simpler, reducing both man-hours and risk. The advantage of the Juniper Networks solution is that it enables us to provision cloud service delivery environments without complex network configuration,” said Junpei Yoshino, senior network engineer, XFLAG STUDIO, mixi Inc.
