Enterprise and public sector business models are evolving, and today distributed workforces, extended supply chains, and business process outsourcing (BPO), are forcing business network infrastructures to extend into new geographies. Modern enterprise network infrastructures are also transitioning to real-time operations, so sharing accurate and up-to-date information with suppliers, partners or customers is becoming a strategic advantage, and one of the primary drivers behind web applications and service-oriented architectures (SOA).
As enterprises extend data, voice, and video communications and applications, to a broader set of users, the volume and pace of electronic information flow is growing. At the same time, users expect reliable and predictable network performance, even as new applications are added to the network infrastructure. IT departments are expected to implement and manage this increasingly complex network infrastructure at a reasonable cost.
The challenge is for your enterprise network infrastructure to deliver the network performance users expect, with the features and flexibility your operations need, at an operational cost you can live with.
Juniper Networks solution
Juniper’s enterprise network infrastructure solutions help businesses meet their high performance network goals with new levels of security, availability, performance, and operational simplicity. Juniper’s routing, switching and security platforms are designed to connect real-time, critical applications and services to users in branch and regional offices, central sites and data centers.
The Junos operating system, which is part of every Juniper-designed routing, switching and security platform, ensures high availability under adverse conditions and offers protection while under attack. Junos also simplifies your network operations with a consistent operating system for routing, switching, and security, platforms, and with options that help consolidate network equipment and reduce IT maintenance costs.
Worldwide, enterprises and public sector organizations leverage Juniper’s enterprise network infrastructure solutions to achieve business goals, improve user productivity and satisfaction, and drive down the cost of operating and maintaining their network infrastructure. Juniper’s network infrastructure solutions can integrate easily into your branch or regional offices, data centers and headquarters or campus locations. Resulting business gains include:
Improved productivity through fast and reliable network connectivity
Reduced network expenses by simplifying operations
Application delivery controller
An application delivery controller (ADC) is a computer network device in a datacenter, often part of an application delivery network (ADN), that helps perform common tasks such as those done by web sites to remove load from the web servers themselves. Many also provide load balancing. ADCs are often placed in the DMZ, between the firewall or router and a web farm.
A10 Networks A10 Thunder™ Series
A10 Networks offers the new premium A10 Thunder™ Series and original AX Series application delivery controllers (ADCs), which are built on the Advanced Core Operating System (ACOS) with a rich application networking feature set. A10 ADCs can help you tackle these challenges by helping to ensure that your data center applications and networks remain highly available, accelerated and secure.
- Maintaining uptime for maximum application availability requires multiple technologies to ensure that user connectivity is sustained and traffic is routed to an active data center in a multi-data center environment. Application acceleration employs many techniques that can be used concurrently to create efficiency in your environment, optimizing the user experience, and reducing load on your servers and network to reduce infrastructure costs.
- Consolidation of equipment can be achieved by introducing higher performance ADCs and consolidating many loads that were previously served by individual ADCs and SLBs (10 to 1 ratios are not uncommon), while building more efficient and flexible enterprise data centers. With the advent of virtualization, many options exist to ensure separation and isolation for different business units, as required.
- Effectiveness of data center staff resources is essential. A10 ADCs enable more efficiency with fewer resources, primarily using automation in the form of smart templates that speed application deployment, and management scripting that automates tasks to suit your environment. Scripting to overcome deployment issues is also key, and A10 ADCs ensure that any issue or policy can be taken care of or implemented quickly.
- Security is a primary concern for business applications and data in any data center, A10 ADCs offer multiple security services that enhance your existing security solutions to minimize risk and ensure compliance with various regulatory requirements.
