Juniper Networks and Nutanix have announced that they will work together to simplify the path to a multi-client architecture for enterprises. As part of the collaboration, the network and security components must seamlessly connect to compute and storage.

The road to multicloud requires for many enterprises a mix of workloads on-premise and in the cloud, says Juniper Networks. According to the company, this is certainly the case when enterprises have existing applications or need control that goes beyond what the public cloud can offer. In addition, the transition to multi-client environments would create a need for simplified and automated network management, as well as integrated and flexible security.

Integrations

The collaboration between the two companies includes an integration between Juniper’s Contrail Enterprise Multicloud and Nutanix’s APIs. This should provide improved network visibility for virtualized workloads. Ultimately, this makes it possible to automate the management of the entire fabric.

There will also be a combination of Juniper’s Unified Cyber Security Platform and Nutanix’ software-defined network offering, namely Flow and AHV Hypervisor. This combination aims to secure applications by applying micro-segmentation within the enterprise cloud environments. The solution also has the potential to prevent the lateral spread of threats within a company.

Finally, Juniper’s Contrail Enterprise Multicloud solution has been integrated with Nutanix Prism and AHV. This allows companies to develop their own private cloud. It also allows organizations to easily move workloads between multiple public cloud and their own private cloud.

“We are excited about our collaboration with Nutanix to enable secure and automated multicold deployments for our enterprise customers,” said Bikash Koley, CTO at Juniper Networks.
