Server and Networking Teams: Better Together with Juniper Apstra and VMware
In most organizations, the teams that run the server infrastructure—such as those supporting VMware-based virtualization—are often completely siloed from networking teams. When something goes down, trying to get to the root of the problem can get messy. Finger-pointing only serves to slow troubleshooting efforts, and with so many different components involved, it’s difficult to figure out what went wrong, and when.
That’s where Juniper Apstra comes in. Apstra’s advanced, intent-based fabric management and analytics improve operations tasks from day 2 and beyond. Whether you’re adding the complexity of an overlay or working on top of basic VMware networking, Juniper Apstra elevates your VMware networking experience. Networking and server teams can now work in harmony with Apstra, which provides:
- Visibility into your virtual machines and virtual networks, including how they are connected to the fabric.
- Validation via specific, intent-based analytics probes that detect network config mismatches between virtual and physical networks.
- Remediation of missing resources within the fabric for existing or new endpoints in just a few clicks.
In this webinar, IT architecture enthusiast Melissa Palmer (@vMiss33) and Juniper Networks senior product manager Claire Delcourt (@cldelcourt) will go in-depth on Apstra’s functionality to show how it can automate and accelerate fabric network provisioning for VMware deployments. Whether you’re using NSX-T or just vSphere, the power of Apstra combined with VMware delivers the industry's most innovative orchestration and intent-based networking experience.
Virtual networking can be complex. Tune in to see how Apstra can simplify operations, smooth the interactions between server and network teams, and prevent blamestorming so that they can work better together.
