Juniper Networks Introductory to What is Cloud-Grade Networking
The rise of digitization and personalized cloud services has created both opportunities and challenges. Network traffic continues to grow exponentially, as do complexities in storage, networking, and computing. Meanwhile, companies struggle to keep up with end-user demand for new applications and services.
Introducing Cloud-Grade Networking
Cloud-Grade Networking helps you successfully meet these challenges while curbing costs and preserving the use of existing assets. Cloud-Grade Networking bolsters your company’s ability to inject home-grown intellectual property as a competitive advantage—and that maximizes your agility. Combining carrier-grade reach and reliability with enterprise-grade control and usability, Cloud-Grade Networking introduces a new set of principles for the way applications and services are architected, managed, delivered, and secured.
For example, Cloud-Grade Networking introduces new hardware, orchestration, and automation capabilities to deliver traditional and personalized services while reducing costs and complexity securely with the Software-Defined Secure Network (SDSN) solution.
The Junos OS now supports multiple independent, concurrent slices of Junos on the same physical router. Called Junos Node Slicing, the feature enables operators to run multiple services in separate, isolated administrative domains. The setup reduces the operational complexity of managing end users’ diverse application needs by as much as 60 percent.
Additionally, Juniper’s new Universal Chassis provides a continuous spectrum of routing across the data center, WAN core, and network edge by decoupling the line card innovation from the chassis design. Universal Chassis gives operators the opportunity for unified procurement, deployment, and operations across multiple use cases. This setup can reduce platform qualification by 50 percent through the elimination of multiple platform certification cycles across the network.
And Juniper’s vision of the Self-Driving Network™ delivers telemetry, workflow automation, DevOps, and machine learning to create an infrastructure that is responsive, adaptive, and ultimately predictive. It’s combined with two new Professional Services offerings and enhancements to the NorthStar Controller.
Networking needs to be as agile as the rest of IT to unlock real business innovation. Cloud-Grade Networking helps get you there.
