Automated Data Center Fabrics

Agility and reliability demands, coupled with new application architectures that alter traffic patterns and bandwidth requirements, are driving adoption of modern data center networks. Standards-based and automated network fabrics help make this move easier.

  • Standards-Based Fabrics: With EVPN-VXLAN, traditional and cloud-native applications use the same open network that operates across vendors and data center sites.
  • Automated Operations: Advanced, intent-based automation simplifies the design, deployment, and operation of the fabric. It also assures reliability with continuous validation and change management based on a single source of truth.

How Juniper can help

The Juniper solution unites the multivendor automation and assured reliability of Juniper Apstra intent-based networking software with Juniper’s scalable and programmable switching and routing platforms.

Simplify fabric deployment

Use Juniper Apstra intent-based networking software to deploy your fabric and connect data centers, including edge locations, quickly and reliably. Apstra simplifies data center networking in multivendor environments with a single source of truth that supports visibility, insights, incident management, root cause identification, and more.

Validated building blocks

Building-block solutions that combine Apstra with Juniper switches translate desired business outcomes and capacity requirements into network configurations. New data centers can be up and running quickly when deployed using Apstra’s zero-touch provisioning (ZTP) engine, which auto-generates cabling and configuration blueprints.

Defy infrastructure limitations

Intent-based operations rely on the performance and programmability of the underlying infrastructure. You can build a strong EVPN-VXLAN foundation with our QFX SeriesPTX Series, and ACX7100 switch and routing platforms. They support real-time telemetry, open programmability, and 400G scalability to deliver high throughput, line-rate encryption, and fast convergence.

Open, flexible, network architecture

Build open, standards-based EVPN-VXLAN and IP network fabrics that run on our Junos OS or SONiC OS infrastructure. Juniper has the experts and tools to help you succeed: the innovators who wrote the standards, the architects who have guided thousands of deployments, and virtual labs for hands-on learning and robust proof-of-concept testing.
