NSM4000 Appliance Overview

The Juniper Networks NSM4000 appliance is a dedicated hardware device that is engineered to provide the computing power and meet specific requirements to be able to install and run the NSM4000 Network Management Platform. The NSM4000 Network Management Platform is an open, extensible platform that simplifies the management and orchestration of networks and allows you to develop and host applications that simplify network operations, scale services, and automate support. The all-in-one design of the NSM4000 appliance enables administrators to easily deploy the NSM4000 Network Management Platform.

The NSM4000 appliance can be configured in either a simple or an extended high availability (HA) configuration. HA configurations automatically recover management services in the event of a device failure, improving the overall fault tolerance.
