Juniper Delivers on SDN Strategy for Service Providers (Linux Powered!)

The vApp Engine is at the core of Juniper’s SDN implementation today and it relies on the open source Linux operating system, for now. Brooks said that the first instantiation of the vApp engine runs on Linux, though the plan is to eventually support other operating systems. Currently, Juniper relies on the CentOS distribution of Linux which is a clone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
