Juniper Networks, a leader in secure, AI-driven networks, today announced it was named a Leader by Gartner, Inc. in the 2019 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Networking. “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 recognized by Gartner as a leader in the data center 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.”
In April, Juniper also received customer recognition and was designated as a 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice vendor for Data Center Networking and/or Software Solutions. Based on real feedback from 250 ratings, Juniper earned a 4.7 out of 5 average rating for that market, as of 17 July 2019.
“We are doing things that we could never have accomplished before partnering with Juniper. We centralized 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 center 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 center to wireless access.
