When we launched the Juniper Networks EX Series Ethernet Switches back in January 2008, we were the first in the industry to introduce Virtual Chassis technology – the ability for multiple interconnected switches to behave as a single, logical device. Over time, this innovation drove the industry away from the monolithic hardware chassis model at the network edge and transformed the access layer, introducing simplicity and changing economics for the better.
The announcement of Juniper's newest hardware additions for the AI-driven enterprise makes our portfolio of CPE the most extensive for secure SD-WAN across all sizes of branch and campuses. There’s no denying the growing importance of SD-WAN for providing secure and efficient connectivity of remote sites to the cloud. Even more important is enterprises’ need to drive operational simplicity and uniformity across the branch and campus in today’s multicloud environment. For SD-WAN to be successful, the key is to satisfy the needs of today while preparing for the ones of tomorrow and beyond.
The AWS Outposts solution is designed to bring AWS Cloud services to customers’ on-premises data centers. An AWS Outposts Rack is delivered to a customer site as a preconfigured standalone rack, requiring only power and network connectivity to begin providing service in customers’ data centers.
These AWS Outposts can now be deployed in an on-premises data center with Juniper QFX Switching devices to interoperate with an AWS Outposts Rack.
Networks are meant to connect. Yet all too often network operations are disconnected, creating chasms instead of bridges for IT departments. This is especially true in the world of Software-Defined Networking (SDN).
Modern applications are distributed, microservices-based affairs that consist of multiple workloads operating across multiple fault domains. Kubernetes has become the de facto orchestrator for cloud-native applications with a rich and ever-growing ecosystem, but challenges remain. Among those, security, networking and analytics stand out at the top, based on user surveys.
In the lead up to KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2019, we are posting a series of blogs covering what we expect to be some of the most prevalent topics at the event. In last week’s post, we walked through the journey from the monolithic to the microservices-based application, outlining the benefits of speed and scale that microservices bring, with Kubernetes as the orchestrator of it all.
