At SDxCentral, our channels dedicated to specific SDx companies provide a one-stop shop for learning about the latest developments from leading vendors in the space. Juniper Networks recently revamped its channel to better help you transform clunky legacy networks into an open, automated, and agile – yet highly secure – infrastructure that addresses your toughest networking challenges.
At a time when people rely on applications more than ever, the traditional hardware-centric way of implementing networks and services makes networks rigid, manual, and unable to respond to rapidly changing application requirements. Companies are turning to the cloud to help them create more agile data center networks, and Juniper has redesigned its channel to help organizations make the transition and become more effective in the cloud environment.
While all clouds share baseline elasticity, flexibility, and on-demand availability, clouds built on Juniper solutions are also open, adaptable, intelligent, and seamlessly scalable. Juniper’s “cloud value-delivery architecture” uses software-defined networking (SDN) as a technology enabler with a focus on network functions virtualization (NFV) to help organizations achieve greater agility and efficiencies while driving down costs.
The revamped channel categorizes offerings for SDN, NFV, and the cloud to help visitors dive deep into the most relevant areas. The channel provides materials including white papers, demos, blogs, webinars, analyst reports, and press releases. All offerings are geared toward helping organizations develop open, agile, and elastic infrastructures based on three key principles:
- Freedom of choice: Flexible deployment options allow implementation to be started anywhere in the network with the ability to grow and evolve over time.
- Intelligent automation: Insights based on data-derived knowledge of network operations guides automation decisions and closes the infrastructure provisioning feedback loop through a policy-driven, programmable infrastructure.
- Always-on reliability: Support for business continuity and business-critical applications is gained through highly available, highly secure and seamlessly scalable software and hardware.
Helping You Craft the Right Architecture
Juniper Networks believes each company must find the path to the cloud that suits its needs best, and it redesigned its SDxCentral channel to help people develop the most appropriate next-generation data center architectures for their organizations.
Companies that demand more from their clouds find that the cloud demands more from their networks. To transition to the cloud with a minimum of disruption, organizations need to architect their networks to meet the connectivity and service requirements of increasingly dynamic applications. Next-generation networks need to be policy-driven, programmable, scalable, and automated to connect ideas to opportunities.
The new Juniper channel aims to help people develop the highest-performance and most scalable networking systems. Take a look at the channel to find out how to start building an open infrastructure that intelligently connects users, data, and applications within and between clouds.
