Juniper Networks acquires the supplier of a software-based platform for large business multi-client applications HTBASE. With this, the network specialist wants to further expand its own software-based Contrail Multicloud management platform.

The acquisition of HTBASE is intended to ensure that the network specialist’s customers have access to its single layer of computing, storage and networking management for both public and private cloud environments as well as for the edge. This allows them to easily manage multi-client environments and easily migrate applications between multiple cloud environments.

Important features of the platform, according to the company, include the fact that the entire infrastructure layer of computing power, storage and networking is much more transparent, without affecting the operating system or the architecture.

According to the specialist, this makes it possible to migrate large business applications much easier and that end users can get the best out of various multi-client environments without running the risk of being locked in by a single vendor’s infrastructure stack.

Expansion of Contrail Multicloud

The acquisition of the platform also means that Juniper’s own software-based calculation and orchestration network platform Contrail Multicloud will have more possibilities. Now, for example, multicloud storage is added. In addition, with the arrival of the HTBASE solution, software elements, among other things, can be reused. In this way, the Contrail platform is being prepared even more for all the challenges that multicold environments will present in the coming years, according to Juniper Networks.

More attention for multicold in the coming years

Juniper Networks will be even more actively involved in multi-cloud environments in the near future. Through acquisitions, but also through collaborations with specialists such as Nutanix and Red Hat. At a recent partner conference in London attended by Techzine, CEO Rami Rahim said that the company would really like to help customers switch to multi-colloud environments in the coming years. Not only by making this step technically possible, but especially by doing this in the simplest way possible.
