High-performance businesses are increasing their productivity by extending business applications to remote workers, clients, partners and suppliers. All this accessible information can strain enterprise network resources, resulting in performance bottlenecks, increased levels of risk and dissatisfied users. Enterprises require an application performance management solution that ensures fast and consistently available applications for end users–and the appropriate level of security—while streamlining operations and simplifying the rollout of new applications.
Enterprise network users, including remote employees, contractors, business partners, customers and suppliers require reliable access to business applications regardless of location. Unfortunately in many cases, most network infrastructure solutions can't deliver the performance and availability users expect, especially without increasing expenses. The network ends up becoming a pacing factor and prohibits growth and competitive differentiation. Juniper Networks' application performance management solutions fuels high-performance businesses with the industry's most complete management solution for addressing network and application performance, delivering LAN-like application availability for users regardless of location.
Recent initiatives to move business functions out to the branch at the same time that branch servers are being pulled back into a few central data centers have caused unexpected application performance problems for many organizations. Juniper Networks WX platforms speed up applications over the wide area network using a mix of bandwidth management, compression, caching, path optimization, and protocol acceleration techniques. The WX application acceleration platforms work end to end with all types of applications, including Web-based, client-server, custom software, voice and video. Only the WX platform offers sequence caching, which can lower bandwidth needs by 98 percent for file sharing and data replication processes. The WX platforms include a broad set of application performance management tools for monitoring and reporting on WAN and application performance. With the WX platform, you can ensure that remote application performance remains on par with local access, even over constrained global links and in cases where many applications contend for the same bandwidth.
Data Center Acceleration
New platforms designed specifically to accelerate page loads and transactions for offsite users make it possible to speed up Web-based versions of applications from the data center. Placing Juniper Networks DX application acceleration platforms in front of server farms offloads network and security functions from the servers. By combining multiple front-end functions into one device, the DX application acceleration platforms increase application availability and return as much as 80 percent of server processing power, reducing the number of systems and licenses required. As application traffic passes through the DX platforms, they optimize, compress and even change all outgoing Web data in real time. Only the DX series offers ActiveN mesh and OverDrive, an API that opens control over processing actions on complete content streams based on specific events or field values.
Remote users require a reliable, high-performance connection to enterprise resources that is minimally impacted when networking services such as stateful firewall, network address translation (NAT) and IPSec are enabled. Juniper's J-series Routers offer high application performance while running services and provide a variety of flexible interfaces that deliver secure reliable network connectivity to remote, branch and regional offices. The J-series enables converged network infrastructures with voice ready routing that combines extensive connectivity options with unmatched application performance, availability and value.
Gateways connecting the data center to the corporate WAN and out to the Internet are supported by Juniper Networks M-series routing platforms. The M-series includes the same JUNOS operating system, tuned over many years to bring high levels of application performance and reliability, used by the largest service provider networks. The unique combination of the M-series reliable hardware architecture, single modular OS and high multi-Gbps performance adds up to the optimal solution for data center gateways.
