Service Description

Juniper® Data Center Deployment Services are designed to support enterprises, cloud providers, and service providers. They are available in four options:

  • Juniper Data Center Deployment Service for new, greenfield data center deployments
  • Juniper Data Center Optimized Deployment Service for new, greenfield data center deployments, includes expert assistance with post-deployment advanced operations  
  • Juniper Data Center Deployment Service (Migration Ready) for new, greenfield data center deployments with a legacy brownfield data center that require a side-by-side migration of existing workloads, includes expert assistance with the migration plan and initial migration tasks
  • Juniper Data Center Optimized Deployment Service (Migration Ready) for new, greenfield data center deployments with a legacy brownfield data center that require a side-by-side migration of existing workloads, includes expert assistance with the migration plan, initial migration tasks, and post-deployment advanced operations

All options are delivered remotely, providing assistance with design, deployment, and accelerated rollout activities. Services offer an easy-to-use, fully automated, deployment package that is quick to install using a highly validated, data center reference design for a new network architecture. As part of these services, Juniper will advise on optimal phasing and grouping of the activities.

Juniper Data Center Deployment Services activities begin with a review of data collected from the customer via a data intake checklist. The customer information from the intake checklist is used as a single source of truth to perform an automated Juniper Apstra® platform installation, deployment, and provisioning of the entire Ethernet VPN fabric. The deployment package then tests connectivity down to IP port level on a few select interfaces, followed by autogenerated documentation that includes test results and key UI screenshots for customer handoff.

The Migration Ready options provide expert assistance in the creation of a migration plan and provide maintenance window support for performing the initial migration.

The Optimized Deployment Service option provides an intensive month of highly focused post-deployment interactive knowledge transfer sessions tailored to customer’s environment. Technical areas covered include UI layout, advanced troubleshooting, and Intent-Based Analytics and Time Voyager capabilities applied to the customer’s operating environment.
