Core To Campus
Juniper Networks is gunning to make itself the kingpin of the multi-cloud market with a slew of new switches, services and SD-WAN solutions it says will allow customers to secure and automate potentially unwieldy environments.
The Sunnyvale, Calif., networking vendor argues that for customers' IT operations to be ready to realize the advantages of the public cloud, they must consider not only their data centers, but their campus and branch networks, as well. If they don't, they may find their networks fractured, jeopardizing security and failing to live up to the agility, seamlessness and control promised by multi-cloud networks.
The majority of enterprise workloads now on-premise are expected to move to the public cloud in the next three years, Juniper argues. As workloads become more distributed, enterprises need to adopt strong, flexible multi-cloud strategies.
Juniper's newly expanded multi-cloud portfolio seeks to integrate end-to-end security and automation throughout the network, including its data center, campus, branch and cloud portfolio. The additions allow enterprises to migrate to a multi-cloud architecture "on their terms," while acknowledging that enterprise customers may be on considerably different paths toward that goal.
Here are six things to know about Juniper's expanded multi-cloud portfolio.
