Juniper Networks named Leader in data centre and cloud networking by Gartner

 Juniper Networks has been named a Leader in Gartner's 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Centre and Cloud Networking.

It is the third consecutive year the company has been awarded the title. 

With measurable use cases across almost every vertical including finance, healthcare and government, Juniper experienced a 17% Y/Y increase in switching revenue in Q4 2019, including the Juniper Networks QFX Series switches, which experienced record orders. This growth contributed to the $1.6 billion in enterprise revenue in 2019.

“We think Gartner’s latest data centre networking report validates Juniper’s vision and our ability to execute in the most important network environments,” says Manoj Leelanivas, chief product officer at Juniper Networks. 

“We believe our recognition as a Leader for the third year in a row comes from Juniper’s proven attributes, including automated fabrics, AI-driven insight, best-in-class security and scalable 400G designs. 

"As technology leaders are driving the digital transformation of their business and rethinking how they measure the advancement of their data centre and cloud infrastructure, I take great pride in how Juniper has continued to empower our customers in innovative new ways," he says. 

"We’re dedicated to helping you simplify your operations in the cloud era," Juniper sys.

"We believe our placement in 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Center and Cloud Networking reaffirms our strength in providing you with secure, automated, and AI-driven solutions. Our multivendor solutions apply to a wide set of use cases, including hybrid cloud, virtualised workloads, and 400G designs."

Juniper helps its customers modernise their data centres with a broad security and networking portfolio engineered with automation and visibility to ease operations. 

“Gamesys supports six data centres globally, and as we looked to increase our end-to-end efficiency, Juniper Networks became the clear choice to help us become more agile and dynamic,” explains Roberto Pullicino, head of production engineering at Gamesys Group. 

“With our private cloud, based on Juniper networking, we have streamlined our architecture, ensured our environments are the same from development to production and reduced the cost of development and time-to-market," he says.

According to Gartner, data centre networks underpin cloud and cloud-inspired environments. "Thus, they require stability and agility. This research helps I&O leaders determine vendors’ ability to address current and future data centre networking requirements," it says. 

"Gartner does not endorse any vendor, product or service depicted in its research publications, and does not advise technology users to select only those vendors with the highest ratings or other designation."
