Juniper Networks recently made a $1 million investment in Alchemist Accelerator, a seed-stage accelerator for enterprise start-ups. Alchemist targets teams with technical founders, backing their startups with a small cash investment, mentorship and co-working space.
Alchemist accepts 20 companies every four months to their six-month program focused on customer development, sales and fundraising. Alchemist aims to h
NorthStar Controller provides you the visibility you need for your transition to SPRING Over the last few years, there have been many ways to incorporate SDN into your network. One of the latest SDN introductions for the WAN is Source Routing in Packet Networks, or SPRING Routing introducing the next generation application driven network technology. There has been rapid adoption of this technology from companies su
Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are the new orange in networking. The most common storyline is that algorithms will drive behavior. The theory is that they represent another logical opportunity for vendors to move “up stack”.
And while it is true that algorithms will (at least initially) provide a proprietary means of making solutions better, they aren’t the only lucrative aspect of a move
There is probably no group of companies in the infrastructure space more envied than the major cloud properties. Senior executives across the globe are actively engaged in discussions with their teams to determine how to evolve their infrastructure operations practices. They throw out words like DevOps, automation, and machine learning, all in a bid to transform their practices to be more agile and scalable.
You may be thinking that that’s a bold statement from someone at Juniper Networks – a company built upon high performance routing. So, why did I include High Performance in the four network essentials for the future (Automated, Open, Secure, and High Performance)?
Speeds and feeds may be boring for most people, but they are essential and must not be overlooked.
The history of IT is closely aligned with automation, from the early computers such as the Enigma Machine to the latest machine learning tools enabling use cases such as automated cancer diagnosis. All of these take tasks that a human can do, but by automating them, it allows people to focus upon higher value work.
If we look at networking, automation is at the heart of many recent trends such as SDN (i.e. automati
