Pros
"The CloudVision Portal allows us to centrally manage all of our Arista products.""The feature sets are pretty cool. They've got almost everything that the competition offers.""QoS is the most valuable feature because our clients work with VOIP and Critical applications."

"The solution is stable.""The most valuable features of this solution are the fabric backplane having upwards of 160 GB of communication. It is a top-of-the-rack solution where you have your directors sitting in the main area and then you have your nodes expanded out to your multiple cabinets. It has a very good design and could be your server backbone.""The solution is easy to use and has good performance.""The 40 gig backbone InterConneX was valuable for our use case. It is even faster now. QFabric has spine-leaf technology or topology, which basically makes every single hop only one hop away in terms of connecting from one device to another. It is a pretty good and robust solution. It works pretty well in terms of scalability, and their technical support is amazing.""It's user-friendly."

Cons
"One of the issues that we have been faced with here in Brazil is that we don't have any list times for delivery.""I would like to see a version available with eight or sixteen ports.""It would be ideal if the solution was less expensive."

"It would be nice if Juniper provided the system integrator with training, similar to that of Cisco.""I do not use GUI's very much for switch stacks. I am always in the CLI. However, I do know that Juniper in the past has lacked on their GUI's, but they have been working on it.""They are working on the virtualization of the actual fabric layer. They are moving away from the original spine-leaf design to a different infrastructure. Instead of having three tiers, which was the director of the interconnected nodes, they cut them back, and they still have that kind of structure.""The disruptive upgrade was an issue for us."
