Bob Muglia, the respected exec who led Microsoft’s gigantic server and tools business as well as Azure, has surfaced. At Juniper Networks.
Since Muglia’s impending exit was telegraphed last January (via a published e-mail that indicated a disagreement between Muglia and CEO Steve Ballmer over cloud strategy) many inside and outside of Redmond were guessing where he’d land.
Juniper makes sense. Juniper CEO Kevin Johnson (who will be Muglia’s new boss) was a long-time Microsoft exec. And Juniper, which has given Cisco fits with its aggressive networking hardware push, has indicated grander plans that have a lot to do with– you guessed it — software and the omnipresent cloud.
