As I’ve written in my previous blog ‘Crossing Tax: Multiplying Complexity in Multicloud’, the future for enterprises is multicloud. And for the promise of multicloud to be true, it requires that end-to-end solutions be largely invisible to users, without compromising security and reliability. So regardless of whether a user is on-campus or remote, or whether a workload is served from an on-prem resource or from a public cloud, the experience should be indistinguishable.
During a time of enterprise IT disruption when cloud and multicloud are changing the way enterprises must approach their networking architecture, Forrester has named Juniper Networks as one of the leaders in its recent report, The Forrester Wave™: Hardware Platforms for Software-Defined Networking, Q1 2018.
It’s a bit of an understatement to say that networking and distributed computing IT infrastructures are undergoing change. It’s fairly easy to point to well-entrenched trends like disaggregation, software-defined networking (SDN), and DevOps and understand that the fundamental ways in which infrastructure is architected, deployed, and operated are evolving faster than ever before. But what is driving all of the change?
Imagine a world where predictive, automated and network-based mega-services adapt to user behavior, enabling better decision-making and enriching personal and business lives. In this world of tomorrow, network engineers will spend more time developing next-generation software than they do physically configuring routers and switches. At Juniper Networks, we call this an era of Digital Cohesion and businesses are quickly approaching this new frontier.
