Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), an industry leader in automated, scalable and secure networks, today announced the expansion of Contrail Enterprise Multicloud to enable end-to-end policy and control capability for any work load running in physical and virtual environments, any cloud and across multi vendor environments.
Most enterprises have to resort to two or more controllers or management systems to manage overlay, underlay and network devices. With Contrail Enterprise Multicloud’s new multi domain orchestration and advanced analytics capabilities, enterprises can now manage and monitor work load policies from a single command center. This means that enterprises leveraging multiple cloud environments—either public, private or both—now have a policy orchestration solution built on a single platform with a single point of control, providing a cohesive multicloud-ready infrastructure.
Contrail Enterprise Multicloud integrates both overlay and underlay management into an open platform. Whether an enterprise is looking for device or fabric management, or overlay policy and control, Contrail Enterprise Multicloud provides a unified approach to enterprise operations that streamlines workflows and improves end-to-end visibility across bare metal servers, virtual machines and containers, along with network devices.
Understanding that any evolution requires the graceful coexistence of both existing and new infrastructure, Juniper has architected Contrail Enterprise Multicloud to support multivendor environments. Based on open interfaces and standard protocols, Contrail Enterprise Multicloud can be inserted into diverse networking environments, allowing enterprises to avoid unnecessary vendor lock-in.
Additionally, for the vast majority of enterprises, the multicloud evolution may play out over multiple steps as enterprises adopt and deploy new technology. Enterprises will need to leverage every opportunity to ensure they are simultaneously meeting existing requirements while also becoming multicloud-ready. To help facilitate this progression, along with the technology advancements in Contrail Enterprise Multicloud, Juniper is delivering a newly unveiled 5-step multicloud migration framework that is intended to provide enterprises with a set of best practices, natural technology insertions and recommended products and services to more easily complete the journey to a secure and automated multicloud.
