Session Smart Routing Demo: Connecting to Public Cloud Workloads

Demo Drop SD-WAN
Connecting to public cloud workloads.

Rolling out cloud-based apps in a simple and controlled manner

When it’s time to introduce a new cloud-hosted application, our Session Smart Router lets you do so in a simple and controlled manner. Applying the example of a business upgrading their inventory app, this demo takes you step by step through the process.

You’ll learn

  • The two things needed to introduce a new cloud-hosted app (hint: first tell the WAN)

  • Why users needn’t change their behavior to use the new app

  • How Juniper optimizes the app experience from client to cloud

0:01 this demonstration will show how to

0:03 introduce a new cloud-hosted application

0:05 to our users

0:06 in a simple and controlled manner our

0:09 branch users are accessing a legacy

0:11 inventory app

0:12 using the private address which is

0:14 routing to a nearby private data center

0:16 the network has been segmented for the

0:18 finance and engineering tenants

0:20 and both are allowed to access the

0:22 inventory service

0:24 the time has come for our enterprise to

0:26 roll out a next-gen

0:27 inventory app hosted in the cloud going

0:30 to our microsoft azure portal we have a

0:32 virtual machine created to host an

0:35 instance of the new inventory software

0:37 it is set to run in a workloads virtual

0:40 network using only a private address

0:43 let's go ahead and launch the virtual

0:45 machine with the workload running we

0:47 just need two simple things to introduce

0:49 it to the network

0:51 first we need to tell the entire when

0:53 about the app

0:54 this is done by describing it in a

0:56 service using the legacy inventory

0:58 service as a starting point

1:00 we clone it to a new inventory service

1:05 for a controlled introduction we only

1:07 want to migrate finance users to the new

1:10 app

1:12 second we need to tell the wan where the

1:14 app gets routed in the topology

1:17 this is done by giving only our last hop

1:19 router

1:20 the azure gateway router a service route

1:22 for the new inventory app

1:24 this means users won't have to change

1:26 their behavior at all to access the new

1:28 app

1:29 the network will simply route and

1:31 translate their sessions to the new

1:32 workload once they are given access

1:35 glancing back at our new configuration

1:37 we have now moved finance users over to

1:40 the new inventory app

1:41 while leaving engineering on the legacy

1:43 app

1:46 next there are desktops of two users

1:48 sitting in a remote branch

1:50 bob and finance and alice in engineering

1:53 as we refresh the browser for both bob

1:55 and alice

1:56 we can see that sessions from bob's

1:58 desktop are now securely routed to the

2:00 new cloud app

2:02 by simply making the network aware of

2:04 the new cloud app and giving a route to

2:06 it

2:06 the azure router advertised reachability

2:08 to all other routers in the topology

2:11 this was done using service and topology

2:14 exchange protocol

2:15 or step which is an innovative dynamic

2:18 routing protocol designed for

2:19 tunnel-free

2:20 session-oriented routing additional

2:22 cloud workloads can be spun up and load

2:25 balanced by the network to scale the app

2:27 as it grows

2:28 and the juniper wan solution is

2:30 optimizing the app experience from

2:32 client to cloud
