Interconnecting a growing number of virtual and physical devices while trying to manage these resources can be a daunting task. Complexity and cost increase exponentially as more devices are added. Applying the principles of cloud computing with a network fabric can help enterprises overcome these obstacles.
With Juniper’s “3-2-1″ data center network architecture, multiple switching tiers are collapsed, leading to a new simplified design that requires fewer devices and interconnections. “Security sprawl” is consolidated into fewer highly scalable dynamic security services platforms. Advanced routing capabilities enhance application performance and agility.
All of these functions leverage a common operating system with an open network automation platform. This makes it easier to manage and administer the data center network, accelerating application deployments and increasing efficiencies in space, power, cooling, and management.
EX Series Ethernet Switches: Deliver unmatched scale and performance for L2 and L3 data center networks. The high-density, high-performance EX8208 and EX8216 modular switches support data center and cloud computing environments. The EX4500 line supports high-density 10Gbps top-of-rack and aggregation deployments, while the EX4200 line supports gigabit top-of-rack and access deployments. Virtual Chassis fabric technology interconnects multiple EX4200 switches to operate as a single device, reducing management overhead.
MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers: Provide high-performance Ethernet switching and security capabilities coupled with the most advanced routing features, and can scale functionality without compromising performance. Advanced routing features include MPLS network virtualization, low-latency multicast, advanced QoS, and carrier-class reliability and security.
SRX Series Services Gateways: Combine routing, switching, application services, and user- and application-aware security within a modular, expandable chassis to deliver unprecedented performance and flexibility while reducing management overhead.
