We know very little about that area beyond the Founders and the Jem'Hadar.
Problem there, we know about the Founders and the Jem'Hadar entirely too much, and they're right on the other side. We currently have a my side-your side treaty with the Dominion that they've respected fairly well (they aided in the removal of the 2800 at a price, and the only Jem'hadar we fight in the game that aren't the 2800, True Way, or New Link is in the Rapier mission, in which a Federation ship was accused of violating that treaty.

The Delta Quadrant, however, our most recent information is that it's a disorganized mess of small regional powers with few large empires, most of whom were far behind Federation technology. A potential goldmine of allies where most potential enemies are solidly outclassed.

With various transwarp technologies already mastered it's a long but not impossible trip, and with transwarp gates it could be made nearly instant.
