Junosphere

Cloud-based network testing, design, and training environment

A cloud-based service that allows networking professionals to perform network testing, design, and training exercises in a risk-free virtual environment using real network operating systems.

    Junosphere

    Overview

    Junosphere Cloud is a virtual environment where users can create and run networks that use the Junos operating system. It reduces costs and limits risk by providing a lab where network implementations can be designed and modeled.

    Virtual networks created in Junosphere can be used for training, network modeling, planning for new services, or examining “what-if” scenarios for the installed network. They can easily achieve a level of scale and accuracy not possible with alternative network simulation approaches.

    Junosphere Services

    Junosphere Cloud is offered as a software-based service with pay-as-you-go options, or as an annual plan for more frequent users. Junosphere Cloud is offered a la carte as Junosphere Lab or Junosphere Classroom for the educational community.

    The annual plan gives administrators the ability to assign maximum and minimum resources to different user groups and projects, and includes overflow capacity when required. It also includes connectivity between Junosphere and a physical environment.

    Junosphere Components

    • Virtual Junos Images gives Junosphere users access to virtual machines deployed on Juniper’s physical routing devices.

    • Junosphere Connector allows virtual networking resources of Junosphere to interoperate directly with physical network elements.

    • Junos Space network automation applications can be used within Junosphere Cloud to provision, monitor, and configure the Junos OS images within the virtual environment.
