Automated Data Center Fabrics

Adapt to changing business needs with a reliable data center fabric solution.

Organizations are adopting modern, automated data centers for greater network agility and reliability and to support new application architectures that alter traffic patterns and bandwidth requirements. Standards-based network fabrics and automation help ease this transition.

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

How Juniper can help

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

Reliable data center fabric

With Juniper Apstra intent-based software, you can deploy and operate a resilient network regardless of hardware vendor, from core to edge. Apstra assures reliability for virtually any topology and network domain with a single source of truth. You can use Juniper Validated Designs (JVDs) or customize your own designs with Freeform.

Validated building blocks

Turnkey building blocks combine Apstra with Juniper switches to translate your 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.

Beyond infrastructure limits

Reliable operations depend on the performance and programmability of the underlying infrastructure. Build a strong EVPN-VXLAN foundation with QFX Series, PTX Series, and ACX Series switches and routers. They support real-time telemetry, open programmability, and 400G scalability to deliver high throughput, line-rate encryption, and fast convergence.
