Speeds and Feeds are Boring - Until You Have Service Downtime

by Juniper Employee ‎05-17-2017 05:34 AM - edited ‎05-19-2017 07:38 AM

For most people speeds and feeds are boring.

 

You may be thinking that that’s a bold statement from someone at Juniper Networks – a company built upon high performance routing. So, why did I include High Performance in the four network essentials for the future (Automated, Open, Secure, and High Performance)?

Speeds and feeds may be boring for most people, but they are essential and must not be overlooked.

In this third blog of the series on networking essentials for the future (Automated, Open, Secure, and High Performance), I look at the necessity of being secure.

Most businesses have come to know that they need to keep data and systems secure. So why is cybersecurity such a hot topic right now?

 

In my view, it is due to the increased value of data and the consequent risk from it being exposed.

Everyone Loves Open, But What I Really Want is Choice

by Juniper Employee ‎05-17-2017 05:33 AM - edited ‎05-19-2017 07:41 AM

In this second blog of the series on the network essentials for the future (Automated, Open, Secure, and High Performance), I take a look at Open.

There are many benefits of an open network, but they all come down to enabling great choice of technology for enterprises.

 

No single technology supplier will ever meet all of your enterprise requirements. Every business uses a multi-vendor approach and the only way for this to be successful is to embrace an open approach whenever possible, so that diverse technologies can work together effectively and easily.

The history of IT is closely aligned with automation, from the early computers such as the Enigma Machine to the latest machine learning tools enabling use cases such as automated cancer diagnosis. All of these take tasks that a human can do, but by automating them, it allows people to focus upon higher value work.

 

If we look at networking, automation is at the heart of many recent trends such as SDN (i.e. automating network control) and NFV (i.e. automating the delivery of specific functions which used to be run on dedicated appliances).

 

But, automation is not the only essential within a network.

I'm Spartacus

Few who have watched the film of the same name will forget the compelling scene towards the end where the group of captured slaves are asked to identify Spartacus from amongst them and one by one they memorably stand to each proclaim ’I’m Spartacus.’

 

Bear with me as I somewhat tenuously (for now) draw a parallel between that scene and the claims and cries of IT and Networking vendors as they all clamour to shout ‘I’m Open’

 

It seems as though ever since I was a young lad, vendors in the IT community have positioned themselves as “open”.  It could be argued of course that no one would ever claim they are closed and proprietary so the word open became almost the default or ‘safe harbour’ position.

NFV - All Change for Speeds and Feeds

by Juniper Employee ‎10-31-2014 08:08 AM - edited ‎11-10-2014 08:10 AM

Speeds and feeds has been the mantra for as long as I can remember but is all that about to change? In my view the answer is no. As NFV discussions, trials and implementations gather pace speeds and feed will continue to hold their place in our psyche but not as you know it. I explore the new direction for speeds and feeds in this blog.
