Juniper and VMware Extend Collaboration

Juniper Networks and VMware have closely aligned their private cloud products and sales teams to support customers in the APAC region.  The companies said their increased collaboration will provide the following:

  • Interoperable products, which are available in APAC today, to deliver smart forwarding across physical and virtual infrastructures and provide end-to-end visibility and management of physical and virtualized infrastructures from a single pane of glass. These include:

    * Layer 2 Gateway Services for VMware NSX certified on the Juniper Networks' MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers to enable seamless bridging between virtual and physical environments.

    * Full VXLAN routing on the EX9200 and MX Series platforms to extend virtual networks seamlessly across multiple data centers. This capability leverages custom silicon and employs native L3 capabilities on EX9200 and MX platforms for connectivity of L3 LANs and WANs at wire speed, effectively making VXLAN a fully functioning replacement for legacy VLANs

    * Juniper Networks' Junos Space Network Director layer with VMware vCenter® enables discovery, management and monitoring of virtual networks including vCenter servers, hosts, VMs and virtual switches. It also provides detailed virtual to physical network connectivity information. This will help ensure consistency and visibility across virtual and physical networks.
  • A proof-of-concept (POC) lab that will be open to customers for the purposes of conducting testing and analysis of the interoperable VMware NSX and MetaFabric solution.

"While it is no secret that the entire IT landscape is undergoing a dramatic shift toward mobile applications delivered from the cloud, nobody should underestimate the challenge this represents to data center operations. Together with Juniper Networks, we have a strong focus on addressing data center complexity by leveraging the power of network virtualization to radically simplify IT, while delivering services at the speed of today's business," stated Sanjay Mirchandani, senior vice president and general manager, Asia Pacific and Japan, VMware.
