It looks like HPE is wanting to acquire Juniper Networks for $13 Billion. Interesting!

    Now I am just sad. HP got 3COM in 2010, it did help on their products, but not so much.

    Truth is they do not have real routing devices, data-center stuff, the move makes sense, but god damn it, Junos. why not go for UBNT or TP-LINK, or Mikrokock.

    HP will find a way to mess this up in a few years, they always did.

  • I liked their switches, and the fact that the firmware was also widely available. Selling to HPE sounds like a downgrade for the customers tbh

    I broke up with HP the second they started to ask $ for bios updates on G9 and newer models. That was the last drop for me, I could live with the stupid LED candies they have, but asking $ for a bios update that brings fixes, improvements to a device already payed, does not seem fair.

    Looks like it's official now. Juniper will be acquired for 14 Billion. Must be nice to negotiate an extra 1Bn in less than 24 hrs. :o

    Well, I hardly wait to see the new shitty licensing HPE will implement.

    Who knows, I might be wrong.....

    Juniper is ruined now
    It was a p good alternative to Cisco, but considering HPE and their practices, this is the end of an era.

    The official acquisition comment:

    According to Marx, capital has the tendency for concentration and centralization in the hands of the richest capitalists.

    It always ends in the ruin of many small capitalists, whose capitals partly pass into the hands of their conquerors, partly vanish.
