Virtual Director

Automate provisioning for virtual machines.

Junos Space Virtual Director gives you fast and error-free service rollout by automating the instantiation of virtual machines (VMs) for Juniper’s virtual security services.

    Virtual Director

    Overview

    A full life-cycle management application, Virtual Director works with our vSRX virtual firewalls. It enables organizations to automate provisioning and resource allocation for VMs.

    The application runs on top of the Junos Space Network Management Platform and supports the design, deployment, monitoring, grouping, and reporting of firewall VM instances.

    Virtual Director uses predefined configuration templates, automation tools, workflow-based tasks, and an intuitive GUI to streamline your provisioning. An open set of REST APIs provides a single interface to all third-party orchestration tools and custom applications for end-to-end configuration and management.
