Juniper Networks today introduced Juniper Networks Unite, a new reference architecture that provides simplified and secure network infrastructure solutions required to modernize enterprise campus and branch networks into cloud-enabled service platforms. Based on Juniper’s latest networking software, systems and cloud services, Juniper Unite will deliver an agile and secure network architecture for enterprises looking to quickly deploy cloud applications and services through a single, easy-to-manage network management platform.
Everything is moving to the cloud.From public to private and hybrid, enterprises are making cloud their default operating model for applications and services. This makes enterprise campus networks even more critical as an on-ramp to cloud-based applications. “Network infrastructure must be able to support emerging highly virtualized, intelligent, application-aware enterprise and cloud-based communications requirements. The multifaceted demands that new infrastructure and application strategies place on the network cannot be overstated,” said Danellie Young, research director and Bjarne Munch, principal research analyst at Gartner, Inc.
The Juniper Unite architecture provides the building blocks required to modernize enterprise network infrastructure and support new deployment and management paradigms, enabling customers to experience the same automation and scale as in MetaFabric enabled data center and cloud environments. With Juniper Unite, customers can dynamically automate their network resources to meet their growing business needs and support today’s operations while preparing for the future.
“Amid increasingly connected business environments, Juniper understands our enterprise customers’ complex challenges across the network. The introduction of our Juniper Networks Unite architecture gives our customers the building blocks required to modernize their enterprise campus and branch environments with simple, automated and secure solutions that can harness the power of the cloud – transforming IT from a business necessity into a powerful business asset.”
