I don’t usually cover hiring and firing, but this one is a little interesting. ChannelWeb reported last week that Sun Microelectronics group executive vice president David Yen has moved over to Juniper to help the networking company focus on the development of new hardware specifically for HPC.

That team will draw on Yen’s high-performance computing experience in developing new products at Juniper. Juniper, which produces networking switches and routers and which is moving ahead on network security and WAN optimization, has recognized that advances in computing and computing power have long outpaced advances in networking technology, and so the company is looking at ways to address the gap, the spokesperson said.
