Visualize, analyze, and control the entire enterprise network

Junos Space Network Director lets users see, analyze and manage the enterprise network—data center and campus, physical and virtual, wired and wireless—through a single pane of glass.

    Network Director

    Overview

    Junos® Space Network Director provides a smart, comprehensive, and automated network management solution that enables administrators to visualize, analyze, and control the entire enterprise network, from the data center to the campus, physical to virtual, and wired to wireless—all through a single management screen.

    In the data center, Network Director helps your IT staff manage and synchronize both physical and virtual environments, ensuring that network policies follow workloads as they move from server to server or from virtual machine to virtual machine (VM to VM).

    In the campus, Network Director automates routine management tasks such as network provisioning and troubleshooting, dramatically improving operational efficiency and reliability.

    Network Director incorporates key functions that address the challenges posed by the rapid adoption of virtualization across data centers and cloud deployments. In addition, Network Director offers sophisticated analytics for high-performance data centers, and open RESTful APIs for service orchestration integration with third-party platforms.
