Reimagine data center operations with continuous automation and assurance
The Apstra System offers a new way of thinking about data center network operations. Start by specifying the outcomes you want, and the software will then set up the network, assure it runs as intended, alert you when brownouts or deviations occur, and manage changes and maintenance. In this way, the turnkey Apstra software enables you to automate the entire network lifecycle in a single system, easing your adoption of network automation. Customers have achieved 90% faster time to deployment, 70% faster time to resolution, and 83% OpEx reduction.
A key principle of the Juniper Apstra System is that optimum operations start with the best design. The System ties the architect’s design to everyday operations with a single source of truth, continuous validation, and powerful analytics and root cause identification. By automating Day 2 operations, the software raises efficiency and results by providing visibility and insights, incident management, change management, compliance and audit, and maintenance and updates.
For fabric management of EVPN-VXLAN and IP fabrics, the system’s Apstra Fabric Conductor toolset automates each aspect of design, deployment, and operation. The toolset reduces the time from design to deployment from months or weeks to days or even hours, with validated templates and ZTP that sets up the network for you. When problems occur, the same toolset averts outages with predictive insights, shortens time to resolution, and diminishes human error with change control and fast, all-network rollback.

Data center networks
Simplify operations and assure experiences with the modern, automated data center. Juniper helps you automate the entire network lifecycle to simplify design, deployment, and operations and provide continuous validation.
Delivering assured experiences, for both applications and operators, requires rethinking data center operations. Simplify and automate your operations from design to deployment (Day 0 and 1) through everyday operations and assurance with the turnkey Juniper Apstra System. Customers have achieved 90% faster time to deployment, 70% faster time to resolution, and 83% OpEx reduction.
The Apstra solution ties the architect’s design to everyday operations with a single source of truth, continuous validation, and powerful analytics and root cause analysis. The Juniper switching, routing, and security platforms stand apart in their robust capabilities and scale, including complete EVPN-VXLAN, IP fabric, and threat-prevention capabilities. And the richness of Juniper's telemetry combined with open programmability of the Junos OS makes it easier than ever to adapt your data center to ever-changing business needs.
Automated Data Center Fabrics
Business demands for agility and reliability without tradeoffs are accelerating adoption of standards-based fabrics with automation. Meanwhile, new application architectures—resulting in changing traffic patterns and dynamic bandwidth needs—add to the pressure to modernise the data center network. And, replacing outdated, hierarchical designs moves past the many limitations of spanning tree.
Standards-based and automated network fabrics deliver scalability, reliability, and non-blocking, predictable performance, along with agility.
- Standards-based Fabrics: IP Fabrics have become the go to architecture in the data center. With EVPN-VXLAN, traditional and cloud-native apps use the same network in an open solution that can operate across vendors.
- Automated Operations: Advanced intent-based systems for automation reduce complexity from the design to the deployment to the operation of the fabric with continuous validation and change management based on a single source of truth.
Data Center Interconnect
Simplify DCI design, deployment, and operations.
In the multicloud era, enterprises, cloud providers, and service providers need Data Center Interconnect (DCI) networking that can scale and adapt as quickly as business and operational demands change.
With our solutions, network operators gain the versatility to interconnect data centers with the right combination of DCI-optimised packet, security, and virtualisation technologies. The DCI environment is unconstrained by vendor lock-in or interoperability challenges.
