Juniper Networks Upgraded Carrier-Grade Routing and Unified Security Now at AWS Marketplace

Juniper Networks ogoJuniper Networks announces that its latest versions of virtual routing and security platforms, Juniper Networks vMX and vSRX Virtual Firewall, are now available in the AWS Marketplace. Operating similar to their physical counterparts, the vMX and vSRX platforms are touted to enable enterprises to flexibly deploy carrier-grade routing and firewall functions at the click of a button.

Customers will have the option to purchase services on-demand via an annual or hourly subscription directly from the AWS Marketplace, or from Juniper Networks, through a Bring Your Own License (BYOL) model.

In order to ease the challenges of workload migration and simplify the experience of using virtual private cloud services, Juniper Networks vMX and vSRX licenses on AWS Marketplace are claimed to match the features and functionality of on-premises deployments of MX and SRX platforms. The virtual routing and security platforms are seamlessly integrated into AWS and are completely manageable through a single point, delivering the performance, management and scalability customers have come to expect from Juniper Networks, while at the same time, greatly simplifying policy enforcement and network operations for hybrid cloud deployments.

Key Nuggets include:

  • Seamless Security: Juniper Networks vSRX, the industry’s fastest virtual firewall, allows customers to extend their existing on-premises security architecture into their cloud environment and can unify the entire architecture using the Software-Defined Secure Network (SDSN) platform. vSRX is designed to protect business-critical assets not only in Amazon’s Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), but also on-premises or in private cloud environments by delivering consistent security policy across all properties, along with the capability to update policies dynamically as needed.
  • Automated Routing Capabilities: Juniper Networks vMX provides carrier-grade virtual routing functionality equal to its physical counterpart, the MX Series 3D Universal Edge Router. Routing with the vMX automates multi-region deployments, provides high availability for on-premises workloads with automated failover, and streamlines service development agility.

“As customers migrate and deploy mission-critical workloads on AWS, they want the same level of comprehensive security found in physical datacenters without increasing complexity. Our customers want solutions like Juniper Networks’ vSRX and vMX, which are available on AWS Marketplace for immediate purchase and deployment. By listing its product on AWS Marketplace, Juniper Networks is enabling organizations to extend on-premises security policies to AWS, ensuring that their data is protected as they take full advantage of the scalability and agility of AWS,” said Barry Russell, GM of Global Business Development, AWS Marketplace and Catalog Services at Amazon Web Services, Inc.

“As a leader in network innovation, Juniper keenly understands the important role of software in the cloud. In essence, while hardware serves as the bedrock for any IT environment, the software holds the key to unlocking unprecedented levels of business agility. In today’s dynamic, global business world, customers need unprecedented levels of flexibility to capitalize on the cloud promise – this is the primary reason behind introducing full-featured virtual versions of our industry leading MX and SRX Series platforms. The inclusion of vMX and vSRX in the AWS Marketplace is a testament to the industry’s growing demand for high-performance, secure software solutions,” said Paul Obsitnik, vice president of Portfolio Marketing at Juniper Networks.

Availability: Free trial and BYOL versions of vMX and vSRX are available now, with hourly and annual subscription pricing to be available in Q1 2017.

Juniper Networks will be showcasing vMX and vSRX in Booth #634 at AWS re:Invent taking place November 28 – December 2 in Las Vegas.
