Klarna, a Swedish e-commerce company, recently picked Juniper Networks’ (News - Alert) QFabric architecture to build its new data center and further expand its online payment data business.
With its business running in six European countries, Klarna has championed the delivery of payment services for online storefronts. The company enables its clients to shop online in a secure and simple way, allowing both buyers and sellers to transact with comfort and ease.
The company has gone a step further with its expansion plans by deploying Juniper’s QFX3000-M QFabric System, which helps in coping with higher demand for capacity, scalability and flexibility as the volume of online payment data grows by significant amounts each month.
David Craelius, chief technical officer at Klarna AB, said Juniper Networks' QFabric technology is an ideal solution for Klarna as it enables them to future-proof its infrastructure and support explosive data growth driven by a rapidly-expanding user base.
“Fundamentally we needed a solution that could provide high performance, greater scalability and network efficiency. QFabric uniquely delivers all this and more for our data center," Craelius added.
The QFabric System is composed of multiple components that work together as a single switch. It promises to deliver any-to-any connectivity, high performance and management simplicity, making it the ideal foundation for cloud-ready, virtualized data center environments.
The QFabric components appear as a single switch, enabling any-to-any connectivity for servers, storage, existing network components, and other critical systems in the data center while providing a foundation for cloud-ready, virtualized and mobile computing environments.
"It is extremely important for payment solution companies to deliver fast and secure services to their customers. Klarna's deployment of advanced QFabric data center architecture will support the company's vision to provide a secure frictionless buying experience to buyers and sellers around the world," said Mike Marcellin (News - Alert), senior vice president, strategy and marketing, Platform and Systems Division, Juniper Networks.
Juniper Networks' Stockholm-based partner, IPnett, a supplier of communication and security solutions and systems integrator in all the Nordic countries, was in charge of designing, installing and supporting the QFabric-based data center.
