Gartner names Juniper Networks leader in data centre networking
Leelanivas: Our focus is to help enterprise customers navigate the transition to multi-cloud and beyond
Juniper Networks has been named a Leader by Gartner in the 2019 magic quadrant for data centre networking. In April, Juniper also received customer recognition and was designated as a 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice vendor for Data Centre Networking and/or Software Solutions. Based on feedback from 250 ratings, Juniper earned a 4.7 out of 5 average rating for that market, as of 17 July 2019.
“It is a time of significant change in our industry, and our focus at Juniper has been helping our enterprise customers navigate the transition to multi-cloud and beyond,” said Manoj Leelanivas, chief product officer at Juniper Networks. “For us, to once again be recognised by Gartner as a leader in the data centre space reinforces what we’re already hearing from our customers and partners – that Juniper is the best choice for enterprises looking to simplify multicloud operations. Our vision, coupled with our commitment to engineering simplicity, is the foundation of our work and what sets us apart from our competitors.”
“We are doing things that we could never have accomplished before partnering with Juniper. We centralised management of our entire network, which is located across several facilities, and reduced administrative overhead with a consistent network operating system, management commands, and management user interfaces,” said Dustin Brandt, director of IT at America’s Test Kitchen.
Developed with enterprise customers in mind, Juniper’s solutions simplify operations across heterogeneous environments, focusing on infrastructure orchestration, automation, programmability, ease of management, visibility, and analytics. Juniper’s breadth of portfolio includes Contrail Enterprise Multicloud, a purpose-built orchestration platform ideal for operating in the era of multi-cloud, as well as the full line of enterprise data centre switches, routers and security solutions. With the acquisition of Mist Systems’ AI-driven solution, the company also cemented its commitment to AI-driven IT operations across the enterprise – from the data centre to wireless access.
