Juniper seeks to simplify hybrid, multi-cloud deployments
Juniper Networks Unite brings new offerings for automation, scalability and ease of deployment
Juniper Networks has announced Juniper Networks Unite Cloud, a new data centre framework that gives enterprises the end-to-end solutions to simplify the creation and management of hybrid, multi-cloud environments.
As part of Juniper Networks Unite, a secure, agile enterprise architecture, Unite Cloud is designed to reduce the total cost of ownership while increasing long term return on investments. In addition to Juniper’s existing data centre solutions, Unite Cloud also includes an enhanced Junos Space Network Director management application that leverages advanced automation to analyse and control data centres, the new Juniper Networks QFX5110 switch with 100 Gigabit (GB) capabilities to scale with evolving bandwidth demands, and the new Juniper Networks Contrail JumpStart service offerings that help enterprises rapidly deploy technologies at lower risk to embrace the cloud seamlessly.
The modern data centre has many virtualised elements and spreads across multiple geographies and cloud environments. Building and managing this environment – while keeping costs down – is incredibly complex and calls for a secure, simple and open data centre architecture that will continue to meet evolving needs. Juniper’s Unite Cloud addresses this challenge by providing enterprises the required building blocks to manage public, private, hybrid and multi-cloud environments, scale with evolving business needs and support the deployment of new applications, services and technologies.
The Unite Cloud solutions unveiled complement the previously announced Unite Campus and Unite Cloud-Enabled Branch solutions to further broaden the Unite architecture, the industry’s most comprehensive architecture to help customers build and manage complex enterprise environments. Announced in 2015, Juniper Unite, an architecture for the entire enterprise including data centre, campus and branch with coherent management, allows organisations to design and build network infrastructures that meet their specific needs.
Hatem Hariri, general manager, uniper Networks MEA said, “In the Middle East and North Africa region the move to hybrid, multi-cloud IT is accelerating with workloads migrating to cloud data centres at lightspeed. Enterprises require agility and elasticity for applications or services to be spun up quickly and managed efficiently and securely with limited resources. With the solutions announced today, Juniper is changing the landscape for IT leaders who are in search of open, automated and secure solutions to deploy hybrid cloud environments that can handle the most demanding tasks.”
