Juniper Networks on Thursday announced an expanded portfolio for a secure multicloud computing strategy that includes the data center, campus, branch office and cloud.
The new products are designed to help businesses put the infrastructure pieces in place to be ready for multicloud computing, as they prepare to move an increasing number of workloads to the cloud.
“The promise of multicloud is to deliver an infrastructure that is secure, ubiquitous, reliable and fungible and where the migration of workloads will be a simple and intuitive process,” said Bikash Koley, chief technology officer at Juniper Networks. “For IT to be successful in becoming multicloud-ready, it is critical organizations consider not only the data center and public cloud, but also the on-ramps of their campus and branch networks. Otherwise, enterprises will face fractured security and operations as network boundaries prevent seamless, end-to-end visibility and control.”
A Juniper-commissioned study by PwC found that workload migration is underway in the next three years across every core functional area, such as customer service, systems management, marketing, compute bursting, business applications, DevOps and backup and recovery.
The study, that included 235 survey responses and 35 live interviews, was conducted in July 2017. Survey respondents identified themselves as: CIO or head of IT (52 percent) and vice president of IT or IT manager (32 percent).
Looking at workloads on-premises, in the public cloud, and in the private cloud, the study reveals that workloads are becoming more distributed across multiple environments, with the largest shift occurring from on-premises to the public cloud.
