Juniper Networks has announced it has expanded its partnership with VMware to deliver a range of services for unifying virtual and physical networks within a virtualised data centre environment. These offerings, which will include VMware NSX L2 Gateway integration and VXLAN routing capabilities across access, aggregation, core and edge tiers of the data centre network, will offer enterprise customers seamless management of workflows across virtualised and non-virtualised systems. Juniper Networks' VXLAN routing and gateway capabilities enable both intra- and inter-data centre services and accelerate the transition to software-defined networking (SDN). VMware NSX L2 Gateway Services will be offered on Juniper Networks EX Series and QFX Series core, aggregation and access switching platforms, and MX Series edge routers. For VMware environments, Juniper Networks offers comprehensive management and analytics as well as troubleshooting capabilities for both physical and virtual infrastructures via its Junos Space Network Director and will provide integrated management capabilities through a plug-in for VMware vCentre Server. Juniper Networks is also working with VMware to extend development of its virtual security product portfolio to ensure future integration with VMware NSX and new security and networking application programming interfaces (APIs). Juniper Networks will be showcasing a range of data centre and security technology services at VMworld 2013.
