The Data Center Rap Battle is a socially oriented site that centers on a series of verbal bouts between IT geeks, who take to the mic to settle the superior virtues of Virtual and Physical networks. Visitors can vote on who won each of four rounds, watch cheeky "behind-the scenes" videos in the Coaches Corner and record their own rap built on a Mad Libs-type script, which they can share on social networks. JMS created animated gifs, memes, downloadable beats and a ringtone for the Data Center site, too.

The big winner, naturally, is MetaFabric - it delivers the best of both worlds by supporting Virtual and Physical networks. While its chief competitors are champions of physical hardware or virtualization, Juniper's new architecture enables a simple, open and smart data center that accelerates the deployment and delivery of applications within and across multiple sites and clouds.
