Multicloud has changed the world, and as much as the transition is impacting the inside of the modern data center, it is reshaping the networks between them. In championing the migration to multicloud through 2018, Juniper Networks saw growing momentum for our Contrail Enterprise Multicloud and Contrail SD-WAN solutions. Given the heavy focus in the industry on automation and overlay (commonly known as SD-WAN), the underlying network (commonly known as Enterprise WAN) is often overlooked. Juniper has been delivering solutions for Enterprise WAN across private and leased networks that enables a secure, reliable and scalable network underneath SD-WAN.
These days, security is top-of-mind for everyone involved in IT. It seems increasingly difficult to string together more than a few days without a major incident. If it’s not a massive data breach, it’s a major flaw in popular software. A couple weeks ago, the Marriott breach was revealed and just last week we witnessed the first major security vulnerability tied to Kubernetes.
At Juniper, we believe fundamentally that simplicity will be on the right side of change. We believe that the industry is at a major inflection point, where how a network is managed will become just as, if not more, important than how it is built. And we believe that multicloud is the context in which all of this is happening.
