How much cloud repatriation are you seeing, and what does that mean for Juniper?

I have seen a couple examples, but I honestly don't think it's enough to call it a trend. If anything, it's still more of the reverse. There is a much more balanced view today than there was maybe a year or two ago where the thought was everything was going to move to public cloud. More realism has come into the picture, and most CIOs of Fortune 1000 companies are pragmatically thinking about a hybrid- or multi-cloud architecture. They want to reap the advantages of the capabilities public cloud offers them, but they don't want to do it in such a way that they are completely locked into a single public cloud provider. And they understand that for a variety of reasons, whether it's regulatory, security, compliance, they're going to need to preserve some applications and workloads in private cloud. It's easy to say, but it's much more difficult to do. Each of the different public clouds and private clouds offers a different set of automation capabilities, security policy capabilities. They need a solution to extract away the complexity and to provide the peace of mind that they can have a similar security posture across all these different environments. That's an unsolved problem, at least it's not solved well today. It's the problem that we're out to address with our product offerings, mainly with Contrail Enterprise Multi-Cloud, which we introduced this year. Based on initial updates from our customers, I believe we're onto something.
