Features + Benefits

Cloud-optimized Scalability and Microservices Architecture

Centralized database to work as a compute cloud. Uses all compute resources on network equipment including routing engines, line cards, and more to provide increased scale and resiliency while reducing hardware costs.

Open Programmability

Uses a Linux-native system and tools for easy integration with third-party applications and hardware. Extensible to easily create custom functions and a developer-friendly platform with a short learning curve. With all states and statistics modeled in a centralized database, third-party applications also have easy access to Juniper’s deep telemetry and status.

High Quality and Reliability

Uses lean profiles for better efficiency, implementing only the features required in cloud-scale deployments. Delivers better visibility with streaming events and telemetry for faster problem discovery and service restoration.

High Feature Velocity

Uses community tools for faster onboarding; smooth, hitless upgrades that accelerate feature adoption; and enhanced debuggability streamlining qualification and deployment. Uses a modular architecture for greater flexibility and agility with composable pieces.

Simplicity and Operational Consistency

Minimizes the effort required to implement, maintain, and customize the end-to-end solution. Provides versatility to create the solution that best fits your cloud-scale deployments through simple third-party application integration and the ability to implement the components required for specific use cases.
