Cloud adoption and multicloud raises bandwidth, application performance, security and privacy concerns for enterprise customers. With data processing spanning from centralized cloud to the distributed edge, a fast and reliable WAN is critical to the success of every enterprise. And to help you get there, Juniper has announced its enhanced Enterprise WAN 5-Step Journey. The enterprise WAN interconnects the various business site types including the corporate headquarters, branch offices, and remote workers while enabling access to applications in public and private data centers.
The journey to secure and automated multicloud leads to the epitome of enterprise IT; we’ve previously examined the ascent from the perspective of the data center, the campus, the branch, and automated network operations. Today we’re looking at it from the angle of the enterprise WAN.
Cloud and multicloud are having a significant impact on the future of network control. Managing pools of infrastructure as a cohesive collection of fungible resources requires more changes to operations than to the underlying devices.
One of the best things about the newly launched NRE Labs is that it’s not just focused on configuration management. The ability to automate changes to network configuration is a vital part of any network automation initiative, but far from the complete picture. When constructing the curriculum, we wanted to give equal focus to other aspects of automation, especially those that will end up saving time and effort for the majority of network engineers, many of whom may not change their network very often.
