Automate. Scale. Create. - A Technical Perspective

by Juniper Employee ‎03-25-2015 09:13 AM - edited ‎03-27-2015 02:51 PM

As I sit here watching a video of my new CEO Rami Rahim give a speech at a recent conference, I am inspired. As a fairly new employee at the company (been here a year) I love to hear his thoughts on where he knows Juniper has been and where it is going. He begins by talking about the start of his career at Juniper, the technology that they created and the impact that it had in the IT industry.  Juniper recently made several product announcements, almost too many to mention here but I would love to touch upon a few of them. In the networking world there are not many product “game changers” coming out in the industry, yet there are many concepts and ideas that are, SDN for example. Some may feel that Juniper’s intention behind “Automate. Scale. Create.” for our technology is not game changing… but when you look at it from a technical point of you, it is.

 

change-ahead exit.jpgFirst, let’s start with the QFX10000 Series switches. Juniper introduced three new high density spine switches that we feel is the next generation cloud spine switching platform because of the increased port density, scale, flexibility, and performance. The switches are integrated with Puppet and Chef, and support zero touch provisioning. The industry knows that these tools help you deploy faster and increase your productivity, but also eliminate redundant work. The switches are also integrated with OpenStack. Our network speeds available with the switches allow you to scale for the present and the future. Worrying about the future capabilities of your network equipment should never stop you from building out your optimal data center. Isn’t that a game changing opportunity? Focusing on what can be done with the technology and not how it will limit you is the future. This is the thought process behind Cloud and Virtualization. The open APIs also give you the freedom you need ensuring your data center can be utilized to its fullest capacity, using your tools and capabilities.

 

The second announcement was about security and the added capability to the SRX5000 Series gateways. Express Path optimizes the process of flows that do not require deep inspection by offloading flows in the IOC (I/O Card). For instance, if the traffic type is firewall or NAT, then there is no need to do expensive Layer 7 processing on these packets. Therefore, the flows are offloaded. What does this mean to you? It means that latency is significantly reduced for real time applications. When we think about time and processing, we want to find any way possible to get it done faster than ever because time matters. Time matters when we are dealing automation, scaling, and creation. Fast responses for your applications means everything. We have done that with Express Path.

 

Last but not least is Converged Supercore. I personally feel that I left the best for last. Remember when I talked about the conference that Rami spoke at (it was an internal conference I cannot share the video). He spoke about how Juniper made its mark in the router market. Juniper was incorporated in 1996, and 19 years later we are still making our mark in the router market. When we talk about the Converged Supercore, we are referring to the PTX Series Routers and the NorthStar Controller. These tools together ensure that you are not just throwing bandwidth and most importantly money towards the growing traffic level problem. With an advanced cost-optimized silicon and new line cards you can achieve more with less. What does this mean technically? This means the constraints are gone and the capacity has increased. We are talking 100GbE interfaces. We are talking Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and WAN SDN enabled. We are talking up to 3 Tbps per slot. We are talking a time where you become the game changer.

 

And the innovation does not stop here. It is our purpose, our goal, our innovation. Juniper will continue to produce innovation that matters; Automate. Scale. Create.

 

PS… if you are interesting in hearing directly from a customer how they are using Juniper to automate, scale, and create there is an interesting fireside chat with Equinix. I highly recommend you check it out.

It's Awesome Being a Woman in IT

by Juniper Employee on ‎02-26-2015 08:00 AM

strongwomanThis year I got to do two amazing things at Juniper.

1) I mentored 8 young women who were interning at Juniper Networks and

2) I participated in the Grace Hopper conference

 

Truly amazing things because not only did I have the opportunity to surround myself with other technical women but I got to share my experience with the younger generation.

Engineers – they really are just like every other person, except if they can build it better, faster, stronger…they will.

 

As we celebrate Engineers Week 2015, we are putting the spotlight on network engineers and how they take the ordinary and make it great. Whether it’s an everyday task or connecting a global network, they do it with style. Here are just a few examples of why we are excited to celebrate engineers all week long!
