Achieve new levels of speed, simplicity, automation and openness. Data centers play a key role in the fulfillment of government missions. From citizens connecting to online services for healthcare or tax returns, to warfighters who rely on immediate access to classified data, every transaction pivots on security and availability in the data center.
To keep pace with the demand, legacy government data centers are evolving. The new data center landscape is largely virtualized and spread across multiple, geographically distributed sites and public, private, and hybrid cloud environments, supporting a Cloud First policy.
But building, connecting, and securing this array of computing power is a complex job. It requires a new type of data center network, starting with an architecture optimized for the cloud era and an infrastructure that gives government agencies agility, automation, and simplicity—with security is built into the network.
Juniper offers new, open networking technologies that automate manual processes to provide more agility and a higher level of flexibility. Faster configurations and a streamlined workflow lead to shorter deployment times for new programs, and a reduction in operational budgets. Automating the network infrastructure and orchestrating the management reduces human errors that expose the data center to higher security risks, management costs, and network downtime. It also sets the foundation for data centers to support advanced, innovative technologies such as software-defined networking (SDN), enabling government agencies and departments to build future-proof, agile network infrastructure.
