Juniper Networks Delivers Security At Massive Scale For Cloud Services, Mega Data Centers

Cloud-Ready Data Center Initiative Offers Pragmatic Solutions to Simplify, Share and Secure Infrastructure

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) today announced several new data center networking and security solutions that enable enterprises and service providers to simplify their network infrastructures, while sharing and securing their networks to deliver cloud services at massive scale.

The new "Cloud-Ready Data Center" initiative expands Juniper's previous simplification solutions to help customers share and secure their data center networks. The initiative features five practical, step-by-step solution modules with implementation guides and best practices to help customers build cloud-ready data centers. Modules include solution designs for securing traffic flows between servers within the cloud-ready data center, securing traffic flows between virtual machines in the cloud-ready data center, and securing traffic flows between mobile clients and the cloud-ready data center. The modules also include solution designs for integrating user and application identity into cloud-ready data center policies, and stretching virtual LANs within and across data centers using standards-based virtual private LAN service (VPLS).

The new solutions are made possible through the Dynamic Services Architecture in Juniper's SRX Series Service Gateways, which can now scale to support 10 million concurrent user sessions - 2.5 times more than Juniper's previous generation and five times more than the top competitori. Juniper's upgraded SRX5000 line also provides fast throughput for cloud security, delivering up to six times faster firewall and seven times faster intrusion prevention servicesii, with 50 percent power savings and 67 percent space savings over the top competitor for comparable throughputiii.

"Data centers, networking and security all play a vital role in delivery of cloud services, which require more speed and scale than ever before," said Mark Bauhaus, Juniper's executive VP and general manager of Service Layer Technologies. "We know there's a lot of cloud hype out there, and we've seen many customers struggle to get their arms around the opportunities and pitfalls. Our new solution modules are designed to give customers a step-by-step approach to get started, remove the roadblocks and build the right foundation, so they can start to manage exponential traffic growth, virtualize their resources and secure services at massive scale."

In support of the new solutions, Juniper announced several new products for securing cloud services and delivering "cloud-enabled security" based on the Junos?? software platform:
