Juniper Apstra 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 Apstra is that optimum operations start with the best design. Apstra 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, Apstra automates each aspect of design, deployment, and operation. This 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.
